First and foremost: We can only provide the information that IS provided to us.
When you send information on a scene to us, to please send a photo or video to confirm the scene you are reporting.
We try like heck to confirm things before posting the info. BUT…………
#1 We can only provide the information that IS provided to us.
#2 We try all the time to verify things, but when we do all we get is SILENCE from the police. Pretty hard to verify things when the police are SILENT.
#3 If you see any incorrect info posted, please let us know with the CORRECT information. We strive for accuracy.
#4 We call the media line, no answer.
#5 We wait for blotters to be posted by the police, Police stopped doing those and actually took the site down. CLICK HERE
#6 We send emails, no responses.
#7 How is it safe for the community and 1st responders, when you send us false information and we try to confirm things, and they are silent when we do try to confirm the info. So we do post the information that IS provided to us. And because of you sending us false info and police are silent and won’t confirm anything, the MIS-INFORMATION is posted…
#8 We will be at a scene, and call officials for an official statement or information on a story. Only to be told by the leading officer, there “is no scene” . But yet when we called, we are surrounded by numerous emergency personnel working a scene, at that very same scene the leading officer is denying…
#9 Again, please explain to everyone, HOW WE CAN CONFIRM INFORMATION, when we DO TRY TO, and are met with SILENCE.
#10 We strive for accuracy, but yes, thanks to trolls there are occasional false information that is posted at times, because of trolls sending us false information and us trying to confirm it, and we are met with SILENCE when we do try to confirm the information that is provided to us. So we do post the information that IS provided to us. Because the majority of the time that tips are sent to us, the info is true.
We ask that if you do send us information, to please send a photo or video, to verify the scene and information that you are sending.
We want our community and 1st responders SAFE. So please DO NOT send false information in to us…
Simple communication and transparency would eliminate any errors or misinformation that may be posted.
Here is just 2 examples of what happened after police encrypted.
Showing how transparent police are (NOT) when we do try to confirm or get information that we post.
#1 video below: They said they do not think the public should be informed about major incidents.
#2 video below: And another said it was just a “huge mis-understanding” at a scene. Even though several days later they came out publicly and admitted there was a scene and arrested the suspects. But when we tried to confirm it or get information, the police said it was just a “huge mis-understanding”
So we will once again ask:
HOW CAN WE CONFIRM THINGS, WHEN WE DO TRY TO CONFIRM THINGS AND POLICE WON’T CONFIRM ANYTHING SINCE ENCRYPTING???
Our website is for entertainment purposes only. It clearly says this many times on our website. We can not confirm most the information that is provided to us (as stated above), so it may or may not be factual. We try to confirm the information, only to be met with silence from the local police.
Or as you can see in the videos above how they directly say the public does NOT need to be informed on a major incident, or how a scene is just a “huge mis-understanding”
