  1. I wonder why the News and Tribune is only reporting the side of the story that makes the officer look bad? No mention that police officers had to kick the door in a few days prior after a suicide attempt involving a shotgun. She had just got out of a psych ward and was supposed to be no where near alcohol. Something sounds fishy!
