Despite requests from at least one elected official, an attorney representing two families and a national civil rights organization, video from the deaths of two men in the Racine County Jail are not expected to be released anytime soon. The investigations of the deaths, currently led by the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department, are also unlikely to be taken over by state or federal authorities as some have demanded.
