The Investigator Hits Canton Police. But Nothing Compares to the Promo


Via The above video is the promo WKYC aired this week for a story by The Investigator, Tom Meyer, who Scene investigated ourselves a couple years back. Meyer's is a worthy story that raises questions about the behavior of some Canton police officers, who seem to have confused their holding cell for the champagne room at Christie's Cabaret. But the promo is a little much ... for a Rob Zombie movie. For a news story, it's the most over-dramatic 30 seconds in the history of television. I bet it worked like a charm. -- Joe P. Tone
