Former Caledonia police captain's harassment detailed in 191-page report. (Racine Journal Times, 2/16/2020)
Some said they did not have any issues with Wall’s sense of humor, although many said they did not know about the alleged sexual harassment incidents. Others who reported the issues as problematic tended to be the targets of the jokes.
Some with concerns regarding Wall’s conduct said it was common for officers and staff to “fake laugh” and “pretend that (Wall’s) comments don’t bother them” because Wall outranked them.
