Jay Z has implemented a social justice arm of Roc Nation called Team Roc. They both have called for the termination of Wisconsin police officer Joseph Mensah of the Wauwatosa Police Department.

In a letter written to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Team Roc writes an open letter about the deaths of Alvin Cole, Antonio Gonzales and Jay Anderson. They saw their lives come to an end when they were pulled over for routine traffic stops over the last five years, using a total of 19 bullets.

Mensah shot 17-year-old Cole five times near Mayfield Mall in February. In 2016, Mensah fired six shots at 24-year-old Anderson in what he claimed was self-defense. Team Roc also noted Mensah failed to administer CPR during all three incidents and didn’t have his dash cam on. Aside from Mensah’s three killings, no other fatal shootings have taken place within the Wauwatosa Police Department.

The statement sent by Team Roc included saying, “We are calling for your office to prosecute Mensah to ensure that he never kills anyone again and to immediately outfit all of our police officers with body cameras,” Team Roc said in the statement. “It is your responsibility to do the right thing, hold Mensah accountable for his actions and protect Wauwatosa citizens from further tragedy. Mensah must also be de-certified and fired from the police force immediately.”
