Who in the hell wants to be a policeman in the United States when every time a law enforcement officer uses his gun, it gets blown way out of proportion and exaggerated by the news media.
KOB in Albuquerque televised the headline Officer-Involved Shooting describing an officer who shot a man who was attacking his wife and children with a knife. The police officer tasered the head case father first. That did not slow him down. So the police officer shot and wounded the man. This news piece did not reveal the name of the police officer who appeared to be doing his job, but now will eventually have to face undeserved negative press. WHY didn’t KOB use the more accurate headline Police Officer saves the lives of a woman and her kids from psycho father? The Roswell Daily Record reported that the officer acted in accordance with his training as in any life threatening circumstance, any available tool may be used to stop life threatening action. Tom Joles and KOB chose to televise only that a OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING had occurred in Roswell which is biased breaking any respectable standard of neutral and objective reporting.
Roswell has a mayor named Del Jurney who supports police officers who use necessary force when apprehending dangerous subjects. Jurney proved this after Cowdy Towler died in police custody in a dark ally one night. The officers were temporarily suspended but reinstated after it was determined their actions were consistent with protecting citizens from an out of control meth addict.
