Department of Justice Gets Involved in Bloomer Controversy

The Department of Justice confirms it has been asked to get involved in the Bloomer cop controversy.

A Chippewa County Sheriff's Department Sergeant filed a formal complaint with the Department of Justice about the recent firing of Bloomer Police Officer Chris King. Sergeant Robert Cunningham says he filed the complaint because he wants the D.O.J.'s integrity unit to look at the facts to see if King's firing was appropriate. The D.O.J. says it got the request February 28th.
