2. If you can pull yourself away from weather news, then you need to check out this story. Of course you remember the story of Chief David Brown’s son’s father’s day shooting and the resulting funeral complete with a police escort. The police commander who called for the police escort was reprimanded and given a two-day suspension. This was not because he ordered a police report, but because he told the News he did it “out of respect for his chief.” I have a feeling this story will again dominate for a few days.
