Damn, very little coverage on this right here in the Valley. But I guess the weather is more important then a LEO being gunned down. Sure do dislike the media at large for they spin they put on every OIS, "unarmed teenager", etc. Maybe some day we'll have a real news station or better yet, a honest newspaper in Phoenix, but I'm not holding my breath. Blues, Stay Safe.
