Am I mistaken? Am I insane?
This has nothing to do with how well the police radios worked. It’s a story about a bunch of criminals getting off on watching police literally struggle for their lives, while nobody steps in to help them.
Let me explain this post. As I was sitting here writing this, the news story I linked to was a long dissertation on how the police radios needed to be blamed for putting these cops’ lives in danger.
I posted my criticism, ate supper, and then came back to check the link.
The story had changed radically. Now it’s what it should be: a story of how cops were being endangered by . . . people actually trying to take away their guns and kill them as onlookers cheered.
I’m going to leave the post the way it is.
It’s important to realize that anyone, even temporarily, would blame this sort of thing on anyone but the guilty parties. Good to Fox news for sending in someone sober to correct that last, completely crazy, story. Bad to Fox news for posting it in the first place, then hiding the evidence.
