"I feel really bad because my best friend, you know, he's gone. There's no coming back from it. I feel so torn right now. I don't have anyone really to go to and talk to. He was like my twin," Freddie Ingram said.

Officials with the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office say this case is still under review for additional evidence related to accident reconstruction.

    What the heck are they protesting?? How ignorant does one have to be to understand that investigations take time?!?! Just because certain elements of the case are reported and people may jump to conclusions, there is a legal process that is taking place. Are they going to be asking for the video to be released immediately too??? It’s tragic they lost their lives, especially so young. But this ‘delay’ in justice, is done so the right charges can be filed and supported in court!

    They were racing at a high rate of speed as u see . Sorry for the families and friends of these young men , but when you go 4 times the speed limit bad things can happen. If they had been going 35 they would still be alive.

    These d-bags are protesting that they are investigating and gathering evidence yet in a case. Maybe they should just drop all charges against the drunk driver the day after the accident and make these guys happy.

      Where does it say he was drunk. The original story from the witnesses is the 2 dead guys were going 4 times the speed limit racing.

    I’m confused….I see a “Justice” sign with a red line through it. Before I go out protesting and acting all crazy what is it I want again? Justice or No Justice. Somebody help me out here. I’d hate to go out there and LOOK LIKE A FOOL.

    Not to mention that both motorcycle riders never had a Class M endorsement and we’re both had suspended driver’s licenses, and a long record of speeding.
