No reporters or photographers at the RFT? Google maps street view images, really? And "journalists" complain about bloggers not being professionals.

Does the RFT report on music or upcoming events anymore or just crime?

I guess you have to punch a cop or stab a cop in order to get shot to death. Other people aren't as important and therfore not worthy of excessive force.

This used to be a nice area, before it became more "diverse", if you know what I mean.

How was it racist? They didn't mention anyone's race. I assume it wasn't one race against another ... nothing to sensationalize to here

This is news. An adopted puppy is not news. This is the kind of real news that should be reported more often. It used to be reported. We should know about these actions rather than cush, feel good stories. These stories affect our community. Now days local news hits one, maybe two stories like this then it is weather and a story about a cat in a tree, then 30 seconds of sports only after another check on weather. The local tv news is not news. This report by RFT is news.
