WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congressman Bryan Steil (WI-01), who represents Kenosha County in the U.S. House of Representatives, released a statement on the Kenosha County District Attorney’s decision to not file charges against Kenosha police officers involved in the Jacob Blake shooting.

"The Wisconsin Department of Justice and the Kenosha County District Attorney have made their determination after a lengthy process. This has been a difficult period for Kenosha, but, when the riots ended, constructive dialogue began and must continue. We also need to continue supporting what is working and fixing what is wrong. I support everyone's First Amendment rights to lawfully express their views on the decision, whether you agree with it or not. However, any form of criminal activity in Kenosha must not be tolerated,” said Steil.
