Wednesday on Lake Effect: Police & Social Services, 'Freedom Fighters', Cirque du Soleil, E.A.T.

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

Our Project Milwaukee series, To Protect and Serve, continues with a partnership between the Milwaukee police and the Behavioral Health Division. Then, we meet the "Freedom Fighters"; civilians who work independently from police to reduce crime and to improve safety on the city's near north side. As Cirque du Soleil's Corteo prepares to open Thursday evening at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, we speak with artistic director Mark Shaub. And a Wisconsin woman learns that food can be a powerful complement to traditional medicine in fighting cancer.
