Police Blotter Isn’t Funny

I’m mostly offended by the Police Blotter. Some of it is funny, but most of items make fun of unfortunate lost souls. Alcohol is not illegal, but drugs are. Driving intoxicated is illegal of course. Most alcoholics and drug abusers have underlying mental health issues, this not something to be laughed at.

The thing that really upset me was from 3-29-20, “a hanging offense in these here parts.” My granddaughter committed suicide by hanging recently and that statement was unnecessary and not funny!

I am interested in the police reports, but why must it be “funny?” Just the facts are needed and appreciated. We are lucky we don’t have rapes or murders locally. Now, that would definitely not be funny.
