    FOX6 investigators go undercover to show how easy it is to buy synthetic pot in Milwaukee

    MILWAUKEE — Scooby Snax. Angry Birds.  K2. Spice. Green Giant. The Joker.  Whatever you call it — it is a designer drug, most commonly marketed as synthetic marijuana. Even though it’s supposed to be illegal, it’s still pretty easy to buy in Milwaukee. “It turned into something very scary,” said a local man, who says he was addicted to the drug for nearly four years and took it to avoid failing a drug test at work. “It’s something that I never […]

    “We had a law changed!” Mother, daughter team up to turn invasion of privacy into public victory

    PLEASANT PRAIRIE — A shocking invasion of privacy has led to a change in public policy, and a 12-year-old girl has been one of the driving forces. She and her mother teamed up to change state law. Christina Walker brought the whole family to the Capitol in Madison recently for “signing day.” Her husband, Kelly, and daughters, Mykaela and Mia, gathered in the office of Representative Samantha Kerkman (R-Salem), as they waited for their bill to be called. Their bill was one of 57 […]

    Offenders threatened, jailed for ‘false’ alerts from alcohol-monitoring bracelets: “I didn’t do anything wrong!”

    MILWAUKEE— He swears he was not drinking, but his ankle bracelet detected alcohol and that almost landed him back in jail. A Milwaukee man has shared his story with the FOX6 Investigators with the hope that the same thing won’t happen to someone else. Dave Matthews Band played a long show, but not long enough for Joel Clifford to sober up before leaving Alpine Valley last summer.  Body camera video obtained by FOX6 shows Clifford telling police he thought he was “OK […]

    “I couldn’t breathe:” State changes course after placing rapist within blocks of his victim

    PEWAUKEE —  It’s one thing to know a sex offender lives in your neighborhood. It’s quite another to learn it’s the man who raped you. FOX6 Investigators show you what happened when a rape survivor told the state about the man they unwittingly placed right around the block. With more communities restricting where sex offenders can go, the state is having a tough time finding places to put them. That may explain how the Wisconsin Department of Corrections responded when […]

    Police officer convicted of battering an inmate finds sympathetic boss in a new town

    PORT EDWARDS —  A former Greenfield police officer convicted of battering a female inmate is back on patrol, but not in southeastern Wisconsin. He is commuting six hours, round trip, to work part-time. It’s been nearly three years since Officer Thomas Roszak tossed a belligerent drunk driver into her jail cell like a rag doll.  The video was publicly released back in 2013, but what most people never heard is what the officer said afterward. Greenfield police say the officer’s statements […]

    Baaa’d medicine: Abuse of ’emotional support animals’ concerns advocates for the disabled

    CUDAHY — What if you could take your favorite pet everywhere you go?  Restaurants. Movies. Maybe even the art museum! FOX6 Investigator Bryan Polcyn did it. And you could too. All you need is a prescription from a mental health provider that says your pet is an emotional support animal.  Getting a letter like that is easy, as long as you have internet access, a credit card…and a total lack of conscience.   After all, there are people who really need these […]

    Voucher school leader indicted for stealing taxpayer money spotted at new Choice school

    MILWAUKEE— More than 50 schools have shut down since the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program started, leaving students in chaos and taxpayer money unaccounted for.  There’s been a push to make sure voucher schools, especially the ones in Milwaukee, are being good stewards of taxpayer money. But some state lawmakers say a loophole in the state’s voucher law is worrisome, especially when they’re trying to ramp up school accountability. In 2012 a grand jury indicted Bishop Gregory L. Goner for allegedly […]

    State’s DNA databank doubles in size — but how much of that DNA was taken in error?

    MADISON — Wisconsin’s DNA databank has recently doubled in size, and in the last three years, more than 40,000 people in the state have had their DNA swabbed according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice. More people than ever before are giving up their DNA—sometimes even before they’re convicted of a crime. And a FOX6 investigation has found sometimes, law enforcement agencies around the state are collecting DNA samples when they shouldn’t be. Last spring, Wisconsin dramatically expanded DNA collection.

    FAA rushes to launch drone registry, which opens December 21st — just in time for Christmas

    FRANKLIN — More than 400,000 Americans are expected to get a drone for Christmas — and if you’re one of them, the federal government wants your name, your address — even your credit card. The FAA’s new drone registration system opens Monday, December 21st. This, as some say the new registry goes too far. Call  them drones, quadcopters or unmanned aerial systems… Whatever you call them, Scott Fisher says they’re among the hottest new technology this holiday season. He owns Gift of Wings in […]
