Thanks Citizen, thanks Landlord!
Back to my pissin and moanin about the local media!
Yesterday somebody was hit by a "vehicle" on East Main near St Francis.
The radio and paper ran a little blurb about the police asking for help locating the hit and run vehicle.
The WESB story is here: http://1490newsblog.blogspot.com/2012/1 ... o-hit.html
The title is, and I quote: "City Police looking for driver that hit pedestrian". BUT then they say "the person was hit by a blue vehicle".
And in the paper today, THAT is all they say about the vehicle .... That it's blue! .... I chit you not! A "blue vehicle"!
They want the publics help .... but then they give insufficient information! .... Just that it was a blue vehicle! Small car? Large car? SUV? Truck? Tractor Trailer? Bus? Train? Low flying airplane? Helicopter?
We don't get any more hints other than it was blue?
Don't the police think that even a vague description of the vehicle might help? Did it have two or four wheels? A blue Segway perhaps? A blue motorcycle?
Why would the police and/or the paper and the radio NOT provide at the very least a general or vague description of what kind of vehicle hit the pedestrian?
Ask the public for help but just give "blue" as the only detail? Why?
Surely we can do better than this?
Come on people .... be serious!
