Reporter Makes Controversial Statement While Reporting [Video]
I guess the to get viewers to watch you on TV, and listeners on the radio is to be edgy controversial and sometimes edgy.
While news 12 reporter Sean Bergin was reporting on a murder that involved an active police officer, Officer Santiago.
After Bergin interviewed the wife of the man that murdered a police officer, he stated that he was flooded with calls asking "why would he tell the story from the suspects point of view?"
Bergin stated that he wanted "shed light on the anti-cop mentality that has plagued urban areas for decades".
Bergin then says the "underline cause for all of this of course comes from young black men growing up without fathers".
