Midtown Crime Watch - What a Joke!

Is there no end to the arrogance of the people in the know in this town? Now I read that Midtown Crime Watch has a good working relationship with the police and don't want the Patriot to do a negative story about how they were not informed about the attempted rape, because:

"Randy King didn't misspeak when he said we were informed," Fitzgibbon said. "We were informed -- but not directly by the police. We have a really good working relationship with the police, so I don't want an article to go out saying the police aren't doing their job.
"Although I am a little frustrated in these types of issues that this information isn't forthcoming from the police and the city. But I understand there has to be a balance. If they report every single thing, it makes it sound like the city is going to hell in a hand basket."

In other words, as long as the folks on her list know what's going on, the rest of us can stay in the dark.

HELLO MS. FITZGIBBON - I DIDN'T GET THE MEMO. And the city is going to hell in a handbasket - to use your tired cliche

I agree, this city is going to hell in a hand basket. City officials are disinterested in the daily "petty" crime. I guess the only way you get their attention IS to get raped or murdered! And then, only if it's a slow news day, (no Mayor Reed Economic development plans) and don't look for it in the Patriot News, better stay tuned to the TV for up to date news. Pathetic!
