Station Sued Over Promo

This promo makes it look like Milwaukee has a bad cop on the streets.

Now, the police officer is suing.  Watch the promo - and then read what was really going on.

Cleverly written around the facts... the truth is the station allegedly knew he had done nothing wrong.  According to details  - the cop was called to the scene where a man had busted out a window of a taxi cab.

The driver wanted $300 for damages - so the cop went to the ATM to get the cash for the cabbie.

The officer was cleared of any wrongdoing - TWO MONTHS BEFORE this investigation "months in the making" was aired.

Ouch.  Thoughts?

This promo was going around the office a couple months ago. I thought it was sensational then, with a lot of wording that made people think the officer was doing something wrong.

The thing is, most viewers probably knew the promo was BS.

They deserve to get sued.
