Is it news or sensationalizing? Or both?
Shouldn't the media be required to reject publishing accusations, innuendos and similar actions where there is no proof?
Here is an incident in Salmon Arm, British Columbia where the Office of Independent Investigations recommends charges against officers for their actions during an arrest. No other information is available. Did the officers break protocol during the arrest? How much force are officers permitted to apply to affect an arrest of a resisting suspect? Many questions, none of which are answered by the media. Readers, please acknowledge that the writers, editor and publisher are not informing the public of a worthy event but attempting to grab your attention with innuendos. https://www.castanet.net/news/Salmon-Arm/349404/Officers-may-face-charges
