Lawsuit: Rogue Officers Exist in Milwaukee

A lawsuit over the beating of a man by off-duty Milwaukee police officers in 2004 has turned up new information. Court papers now suggest the existence of a rogue group of Milwaukee police officers. In 2005, Milwaukee Police Captain James Galezweski heard about a group of police officers working out of the District Seven police station who called themselves "The Punishers". The Punisher is a comic book anti-hero -- a police officer who gets his own brand of justice when the legal system fails.
