Shooting is suspicious

You have covered shooting victim Jeremy Arnold’s criminal history in depth and detail. It could almost qualify as character assassination.

Friday’s paper named the officers and their many awards and citations; kudos to all.

The problem I’m having is after three days the report is still: “He exited the vehicle with what appeared to be a pistol.”

Is he still lying where he fell on whatever he had in his hand, or has he been moved and they actually know what he had in his hand? I saw where they justified taking so long to decide whether or not a shooting was justified and issue a report, just last week in the paper. If it takes them three days to determine if the suspect was actually armed, no wonder it takes so long to get a report.
