that is the result of the camera technology and when it was activated by the officer. there is a period in which there is no audio and that is difficult. it would be better to be able to hear.schimel all three officers have been interviewed at least once. he says they have not been shown the video as the investigation continues. in the end the pubic needs to have confidence that the process was an effective search for the truth. coming up on live at six why state investigators needed to wear body armor while collecting evidence and what impact that had on the case. the delay in recorded audio on the officer's body camera is ?not? a setting milwaukee police put in place -- but it's actually how the technology is set up. rikki mitchell joins us live from police administration to answer questions about these cameras i spoke with the company who makes the body cameras used by milwaukee police -- they tell
