    I read the newspaper, and I watch the news, and one of the first topics that they bring up is people who get arrested, or jailed. It could be minor stories such as: 16 year-old breaks into house, or 40 year-old caught with marijuana, or you get the point.

    IS IT NECESSARY FOR A POLICE BLOTTER TO BE IN THE PAPER?

    I am saying this out of anger, because obviously someone being arrested for burglary is more important than me getting my article posted about my Presidential Freedom Scholarship, and the $1,000 that came with it for Community Service.

    I personally don't pay much attention to them, however, I know the elderly in certain communities live by them.

    It lets them know to extent, what are who to look out for.

    i.e.

    is there a rash of buglaries?
    No Body caught?

    etc.

    POLICE just another gang
    thay their like said it sales talking about jailing and killing is top news today
    make them look like hero's black folks awards /community greatness and
    stuff like that will never be headlines until it's the mayor / high offical kid

    and kids / family all that police just a line to sale viewers .
