A detailed look at Madison Chief Koval’s claims about deadly force

image

Koval’s repeated statements that police departments in the U.S. or in Wisconsin all use identical deadly force policies (other than trivial differences in phrasing) is false.

More generally, I would suggest that, given that Chief Koval appears to be repeatedly provided false or misleading information (on this and other issues), that elected officials might be wise not to rely on factual claims from Koval without external verification; and that consultation with appropriate external experts should be used whenever possible.

Sincerely,
