(OPINION) – A major principle of Media/news outlets is to take not only elected officials but other agencies to task on the ongoings in the community.
With all the homicides, gang activity and drugs running rampant in our city, why haven’t any local news outlets taken our acting chief to task on these subjects?
Why are people hearing details about this stuff from a fat disabled cement finisher with a website and not the mainstream media?
Why did the director of communications at TBPS leave out the fact that a macs clerk got their throat slit?
Why is he also leaving out that the woman who crashed on Walsh and Brown today, suffered a massive heart attack and had to be revived twice by first responders?
Why is the hard work of our frontline police officers and paramedics not being shown to the citizens?
Why is information being withheld from the public?
What exactly does the director of communications at TBPS do to earn about $130,000 a year?
Why hasn’t our acting chief of police addressed the public about the recent homicides and drug busts?
Is it acceptable to keep the public in the dark?
When I attempted to fill in the gaping holes in the director’s media release regarding the collision on Walsh and Brown today, my comments were deleted.
More to come soon.
