About the Event

The catalyst for creating the WCPR, founded in 2011 and formerly called the Network for Police Accountability, was the killing of Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr. on November 19, 2011. Mr. Chamberlain was a 68-year-old man with a heart condition whose medical alert sounded by accident at 5:00 AM.  Police were dispatched, and after an hour-long confrontation where the victim made clear he did not need or want their help, and that he was distressed and terrified, police broke into his apartment and Mr. Chamberlain was shot to death.
