Statement of President Hines on the passing of Felmers Chaney

Statement of President Hines on the passing of Felmers Chaney.

By - Dec 5th, 2012 01:32 pm

Felmers Chaney was an iconic figure and trailblazer in the history of the Milwaukee Police Department, and he later took that same spirit of courage and leadership to the Milwaukee branch of the NAACP, where (as president) he fought for civil rights and liberties and against police abuse and school segregation. He leaves a strong and positive legacy for others to follow – a legacy that I believe will live on for many years.

He was married for more than 70 years to Jessie, and my sincere condolences go out to her and to the entire family at this difficult time.
