When will we hear an answer?

Good morning, Netizens...

Our new police ombudsman may now have a massive challenge sitting on his desk, or so suggests journalist Larry Shook this morning. Turn your web browsers to and read the first piece, called “America's Most Dangerous Cop”.

Take your time, as there is a lot of previously-discussed information in the article, but there is a highly-controversial but very factual series of statements made about Police Chief Kirkpatrick and our Police Ombudsman, Tim Burns.

I have known of and respected Larry Shook for a number of years, and if he has taken a newfound fetish for printing lies, it would be news to me. The real question one might ask, having read the entire piece, is why hasn't anyone stepped up and answered Shook's challenges and questions? Will Tim Burns?

It seems a more than fair question to me.
