We recently ran a press release from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department concerning a drunk driver who slammed into the back of a vehicle on Hwy 111. It was a case of a elderly lady who had a bit too much to drink. She was booked into the Indio Jail after she failed the field sobriety test and Breathalyzer. I’m not going to link to the story, I need not cause more aggravation.
I copied word for word the press release and diligently posted it in our Police Blotter. I even posted the incident number.
I’ve Sold a mile of hot dogs to innocent folks. Everyone I have ever talked with at the court house said that they were innocent too. That is not for me to judge. I only report the story as it was relayed to me, in this case, by way of official press release.
Most people that find themselves at the wrong end of the law, remain silent and avail themselves of their rights as defendants. They do not compound the problem by traveling 100 miles to drop a nasty little note in a Publishers/ bloggers mail box.
So I am going to overlook the kind of weird behavior and over look the “Stalking” nature of going to someones house while out on bail to interfere with the 1st Amendment freedom of the press, and suggest that is the lady has a problem with the story that she first contact the Riverside Sheriffs Department Media Information Bureau (MIB) to file a complaint to make a public retraction or correction… and/or send a email to us, or post a comment, make any statement that she feels important and request that it be added to the story in her own defense. BUT coming to my private residence during the night and dropping off a weird note in my mail box, scaring the bejebbers out of my wife, will only escalate your problems madam.
Have a nice day.
