Milwaukee police fail to follow dept. policy

In an investigation by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reporter Gina Barton found that a Milwaukee man who was in need of medical attention while in police custody was ignored, until it was too late. "The man repeatedly told officers he couldn't breathe, but no one called an ambulance until he lost consciousness, despite a department policy that requires officers to quickly summon medical help for prisoners who need it."
