07/03/10 87 W, 1 I - + 3 - 5 Apex Police Officers Awarded

The Apex Herald has posted a nice article about three Apex police officers who received a Medal of Valor on June 16, during the department's annual awards ceremony. They received the medal, which is the department's highest honor, for their actions at the Super Target shooting on May 30. They were the first arriving officers at the incident, entered as a group believing that two shooters were present, and located and neutralized the assailant. Read the entire article.

Mike thanks for having the where with all to post this wonderful story about the Apex PD . Officer Jones remember has been put thru the ringer by the N&O and wral for his handling of an NCSHP police dog during training. Where is wral and the n&o when Jones(twice) and the other officers risked everything to stop a potentially very dangerous situation at the super target a few months ago. The town of Apex got this one right singling out these officers for using their training and doing their jobs very very well under extremely stressful circumstances too bad the n&o and wral cannot bring themselves to report with such vigor this story like they will if the NCSHP messes up like they have recently. Again thanks Mike for posting !!

Good news is easy to report! Thanks for your note. There is perhaps an interesting discussion to be had on editorial decisions and assumptions therein. Why does the news report what it reports? Someone else will have to field that one. This blog and the news reported or re-reported therein is neither revenue driven, nor regularly programmed. To name just a couple differences, of which there are many more! And least of which is the tropical attire of our “on scene” staff, ha ha.
