This story doesn't need much explanation, since the news investigation reporter does such a good, detailed job telling it. The background is a young woman was hit by a police car, horribly injured and charged with drunk driving, despite being sober. It was only by chance that, after a year, the true story came out. I won't give anything more away. But what's telling are two things -- 1) what this young woman has been through her entire life, and how she fought for the truth, and 2) that the officer who caused the accident and lied hasn't been disciplined. The report comes from station WITI in Milwaukee, following a brief commercial.
