• It's simple. Guy points gun toward law enforcement, guy gets shot. Move on already. Please don't start a series about it.

  • Romonak,

    Do you not believe in democracy and the Constitution? Why is it mutually exclusively to support your local police and your local newspaper?

  • sooooo basically what your saying is you want to know something that the report doesn't say so that you can exploit it and continue to use other's misery as fuel for your paper. yeah, thats about right.

  • Yes, it's your civic duty to go to law enforcement with any direct information you have related to a crime. A key reason why the American public has so much faith in their law enforcement is because they know they also are free to go to the media to watch over the actions of their government.  Again, our thoughts are with the officers and the apparent victim of a domestic assault during this difficult time.

    On a related note, if anyone has loved ones at Twin Pines and would like to discuss security concerns there, please contact us as well. Thank you.

  • Victoria Concerned Citizen,

    I agree completely with you that anyone with direct knowledge of the case should speak to the proper authorities. At the same time, our country has a long and proud tradition of journalists conducting independent investigations of our government's actions. These principles go hand in hand in a democracy.

  • Witnesses should go forward with their information to local law enforcement and not to sensationalized tabloid style journalists, or any journalists for that matter!  The event should be properly investigated so that no one escapes justice. Putting all of this information in the paper and on the Internet could provide proper justification for the defense at trial.  Please, people, take your information to law enforcement.

  • Thanks, Mike. In my haste to post the news, I made an error in the headline and then corrected it. I've said it many times before, but this is why everyone needs an editor. When readers are the editors with online breaking news, you will sometimes see the sausage being made.
