  • ‘It’s going to destroy us:’ 17-year Navy vet says mental illness led to discharge and massive debt

    SHEBOYGAN— A 17-year veteran of the United States Navy got the boot after he discloses a mental illness, but it’s what the government’s been doing ever since then that had his family calling the FOX6 Investigators for help. It was hard enough for Nate Duszynski to accept his naval career was over, but then the government started taking his severance pay,  disability checks and tax refunds, even garnishing his wages — more than $106,000 so far and still counting. Duszynski […]

  • ‘I have to say I did this:’ Psychologist caught on video talking about fabricated treatment notes

    WEST ALLIS — Psychologists are supposed to help you deal with your anxiety, not encourage you to pretend it’s worse than it really is.  But that is what a West Allis doctor is accused of doing to try and help his client win a big court judgment. The psychologist was caught on hidden camera coaching a client to lie about his symptoms. Turns out, state regulators had the video recording for nearly two years before finally taking action. After four decades in […]

  • ‘We want the rules to change:’ Father of choking victim wants CPR training for school staff

    MILWAUKEE — In Wisconsin, high school students are now required to get CPR, Heimlich maneuver, and first aid training before they’re allowed to graduate. It’s a different story for the adults in charge. It’s something that has one father calling for life-saving changes. Flashes of 9-year-old Sam Megna’s short life are preserved in all of the typical home videos like a Christmas concert, dance classes and a trip to Disney World. But there is nothing typical about the way Sam’s life ended. “I […]

  • Former professor calls on Wisconsin Supreme Court to define the limits of ‘academic freedom.’

    MADISON —  Can you get fired for criticizing your coworkers?  A former Marquette University professor says that’s basically what happened to him. Now, the state’s highest court is considering what it means to have ‘academic freedom.’ Four years ago, John McAdams drew national attention to a student instructor who had refused to allow a debate over gay marriage in her classroom. What happened next set off a legal battle that could determine just how far ‘free speech’ goes at a private university, […]

  • Freedom of speech, or student safety? Supreme Court hears arguments after MU professor fired over blog post

    MILWAUKEE — Freedom of speech, or student safety? The Supreme Court of Wisconsin on Thursday, April 19 heard arguments in the case of former Marquette University professor John McAdams — a case some say could define the limits of academic freedom. There’s no question that McAdams publicly criticized a graduate student. The question is whether his contract with the university gave him the right to do it. “If academic freedom means anything at all, it has to mean he can’t […]

  • ‘Beyond unacceptable:’ Falls project misses deadline in run-up to election

    MENOMONEE FALLS — A prime piece of real estate. A $4-million dollar tax incentive.  And a project that is way behind schedule. FOX6 Investigators show you how a controversial development in downtown Menomonee Falls could be an election issue on Tuesday, April 3rd. In a village that derives its very name from the cascading waters of the Menomonee River, the Main Street real estate along its western bank carries special meaning. “That piece of property is arguably the best piece […]

  • Judge declares gas station phone chargers to be illegal ‘gambling machines’

    MILWAUKEE— Are they slot machines or cell phone chargers?  A FOX6 investigation finds video gaming consoles moving into gas stations all over southeastern Wisconsin. The state says they’re against the law, but FOX6 Investigators show you what a Milwaukee judge says about ‘gasinos.’ You put money in. You play a game of chance. You hope to win a jackpot. In other words, the so-called ‘Pow’r Up’ machines at some local gas stations “are kind of like slot machines,” according to […]

  • ‘How do you survive?’ Small station owners say Costco’s gas prices are too low

    MENOMONEE FALLS — There is a gas war underway in Wisconsin, and some gas station owners say it could put them out of business. A big box retailer is driving down the price you pay at the pump. There are more than 3,000 gas stations and convenience stores in Wisconsin. Only nine of them belong to Costco.  But in the past two years, the big box warehouse club has generated far more complaints than any other gas retailer in the state […]

  • FOX6 Investigation prompts response from Wisconsin Democratic Party

    MILWAUKEE COUNTY — A Wisconsin Democratic Party activist is crying foul over a FOX6 investigation. Terrell Martin has issued a press release claiming FOX6 News spread “false information” about him related to his former role at the Milwaukee County Juvenile Detention Center. It all ties into a shocking case of alleged abuse caught on camera. The video leaked to FOX6 News shows a correctional officer attacking a juvenile inmate unprovoked. The FOX6 Investigators found top brass at the detention center sat on the […]

  • ‘Completely unprovoked!’ Correctional officer’s attack on juvenile kept quiet for nearly a year

    MILWAUKEE COUNTY — A correctional officer attacks a child inside the Milwaukee County Juvenile Detention Center. FOX6 Investigators show you the video that’s never been released. Plus, the alarming lack of action by supervisors and administrators who knew all about it. The juvenile guard was fired and charged with a crime last summer for an incident that happened more than two years ago. It was all caught on video. So why did top brass at the juvenile detention center sit […]

  • ‘No face, no case:’ Criminals bribe, threaten and kill to keep witnesses from testifying

    MILWAUKEE — No face, no case.  It’s a popular mantra for criminals who aim to silence the witnesses against them. If you’ve been the witness to a crime, be prepared. The suspected criminal just might try to reach out and touch you from behind bars. It’s no secret investigators are listening to jailhouse phone calls, but that doesn’t keep the bad guys from trying. In Milwaukee’s most violent neighborhoods, it’s not what you do that could be dangerous, but what […]

  • White House declassifies partisan, bitterly disputed memo on Russia probe

    WASHINGTON — The White House on Friday declassified a partisan and bitterly disputed memo on the Russia investigation, clearing the way for House Republicans to release allegations of what they say is FBI misconduct. The move came over the fierce objections of the FBI and Justice Department, which have said the document prepared by Republicans on the House intelligence committee is inaccurate and missing critical context. The four-page memo alleges that the FBI abused U.S. government surveillance powers in its […]
