Now you only need to add a few posts with nonsense lists and you will have more "news" coverage that LVL/Express Times.

10:16, Thank you. Each weekend I will go thru local police facebook entries. If anyone sees a link to one I missed, please post the link. Most newspapers appear to be getting away from this in favor of the major crime stories.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Also, I just deleted a comment opining that cyclists are criminals. I am not interested in judgmental opinions in this kind of post. If you have something helpful to the community, please share. But I am not interested in condemnations or generalizations.

I miss that weekend "post your own topic" feature. Can't believe no one took you up on that. Did you go to the Maronite Church for some Lebanese food this past weekend? Peace.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Hi Father! Hope all is well. I was pretty busy this weekend and missed Lebanese Heritage Day.

I have already said I will not host judgmental condemnations. You can comment if you know something about the situation or have a link to a police report that I missed.

You missed the story where they arrested the driver of the hit & run incident in Bangor the night of the Roseto "big time." Police found her Jeep hidden in Stroudsburg. BTW, shes a close friend of Magistrate Zito, and she hired her husband, Matt Goodrich to defend her!

Bernie O'Hare said...

Thank you for updating us. If she is friendly with Zito or is represented by her husband, there will be a recusal and the case will be heard by someone else.

So, will be be adding the South Whitehall police officer and his felony manslaughter charge or selectively choosing what you will?

Bernie O'Hare said...

Over the weekend, I will be going through the Facebook pages and adding items of interest. This will not be included because of the heavy coverage it is already receiving. I may do a separate story about it.
