Milwaukee Police Officer Joseph Anderer did not want any recording of his colleagues ticketing a victim who was broadsided April 5, 2011 by a speeding police car that exited an alley without stopping.

So he twisted the camera from reporter Geoff Davidian’s hand, breaking the lens. Anderer cited Davidian for interfering with issuance of a citation, although no citation was issued (except to Davidian) by any of the police in the six squad cars and a motorcycle that responded for 90 minutes.

The citizen whose car sustained damage from the speeding police car was issued a warning. During the incident, Anderer said, “You reporters never tell the truth.” So we’ll let the camera do the talking in this video.
