I'm sure it didn't even happen.

Also I am not saying he has to play superman and try chase after the assailants. My point of my post is he more than likely seen the shooters.

The new rarely does capture so things as they get to the scene late. There are several people there that said the seen the cop arrive after he heard the first shots. As I said it's not about catching the idiots the same day, it was more on the lines of seeing the shooters.

It is easy to shift blame here, especially with incidents like this. The police are there to help, but it is strange how the community, or these coaches, say it was a lack of police presence and then this information about a policeman supposedly witnessing and not reporting the criminals.

The core problem is the community is not working with the police but against them.

Just in case you aren't aware of this, "the news" isn't omnipotent, omnipresent, or any combination thereof. They know what information is released to them or they can dig up.

If an investigation is closed to the public and nobody spills the beans, they're just as clueless as anyone else. In fact, they'll probably pull something out of their ass in a grasp at relevancy, especially with the sharp decline of interest in print and televised news outside of the elderly.

I think what Aran is saying is that the news can't cover every crime, they pick and choose what they deem as newsworthy. In most cases the news covers unnewsworthy items and fluff pieces way too often.

So in other words, as I thought, what you have to say is hearsay.

I hope you are never called to be on a jury in civil court. It's more than obvious to me that what she has to say is simply hearsay. Do you really think a cop is going to see or hear the gunshots and simply get back in his vehicle like it didn't happen? Come on....
