    This makes what I read either in the NY Post or LA Times about social media exploding because of this. Basically no one wants to be right they want to be FIRST! Getting information or in a lot of these cases tidbits of information and then augmenting that info by filling in the blanks with what ever comes to mind creats this mess. Also keep in mind every reporter has a "police" friend they can call. Does that reporter's "friend" even work for the primary agency? Is he on scene or directly involved? In almost ALL cases the answers are no. So sometimes we are also guilty of wanting to be first and not necessarily correct with ALL the puzzle pieces. Once it is out there remember its hard to get back

    Also, Churchill:

    A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.

    Short version: many people are stupid and/or gullible.

    We see this day in and day out here and where-ever LEFT- or RIGHT-wing nuts whine louder than level-headed rational people--which is everywhere. Of course, if you ask them, THEY aren't stupid, it's just that the "real" story (i.e. the one that reaffirms their retarded worldview) is willfully ignored by the "mainstream" media.

    I've taken on the role of Policelinks Conspiracy theory Coordinator for the moment. Hopefully we can knock these out and go onto focusing on the victims both Civilian and LEO and giving the LEO's whom not only aided, but put themselves in a very dangerous situation to keep others out of it their due.

    Also, I'm not sure if an article about the Officer that survived getting shot got buried, but I read that Officer lost all his blood at one point. The last time I checked, he was no longer listed in critical, but not a %100 either.
    Oh, and a shout out to the PSD in the K9 unit who worked tirelessly through it all.

    My prayers are with him.
