WCCO reporter Liz Collin has been targeted by protestors in Minneapolis.
Her husband, Minneapolis Police Federation president Bob Kroll, has been under fire since the May 25 death of George Floyd, who was killed when in police custody. Collin, meanwhile, has been criticized by activists for her involvement in stories about the police. However, WCCO told TVSpy after this post was initially published that the reporter, who has been with the CBS station for at least a decade, does not report on the local police department or police union to avoid any potential conflicts of interest.
But according to Bring Me the News and the Star Tribune, protestors took things to another level this weekend. Video surfaced of protestors outside their home smashing piñata effigies of Collin and Kroll, as they demanded that both be fired.
