Police seem to be heroically rescuing baby ducks . . . pretty much everywhere
Is 30 really that many? There are lots of cops, ducks and cities in this country.
More generally I don't much blame PDs for wanting to maintain decent public image. How much media outlets collude to provide one for them - and how much it's to the detriment of decent reporting - I'm less sure of, though.
Yesterday the Times of London ran a story about Atlanta, GA cops pulling a car thief from an overturned cop car -- on trains tracks! -- just before the train hit the car. A miracle to be sure. Why Londoners needed this information, I can’t imagine.
Radley, respectfully, this type of ”reporting” is beneath you.
