For many years we have been a sole source in sharing ALL Press Releases made public by Law Enforcement.
However, being a victim of a few recent break inn's and not seeing Press Releases come forth, we now know for a fact that we are NOT being told everything.
We feel it is important the public have access to ALL crime. It gives us a better idea as to where we should live, invest and or to protect ourselves.
On another note, how do we know IF what we are being told through statistics IF the information we see is actually accurate. As many of you know, Salisbury News exposed, (years ago) all of the Gang issues in Salisbury, yet the former Mayor and Chief implied there are NO GANGS in Salisbury. Yeah, we were the bad guys once again for exposing the TRUTH.
Then there was the article in which we published Salisbury being the 4th Most Dangerous City in America, (per capita) and they once again came back and said we were full of crap. Funny how years later the rest of the local Media finally agreed and started publishing information we had provided years before.
Today we get challenged regularly by the local Fire Department simply because we are now publishing their daily calls for service. We get bullied and people run around saying Joe Albero hates Firefighters, which is completely not true.
The powers to be want us to keep quit. They want us to censor information and not make it so public, hence the first Post of the day yesterday. The Fire Department is no different and let's not forget the fact that I was sued by the Chief of Police, the Mayor and even the Warden of the Detention Center. They wanted Salisbury News shut down.
We are not only fighting for our rights, we have been fighting all along for yours as well. Meanwhile the rest of the local media stands by and does stories on behalf of those suing me and barely in defense of our First Amendment Rights.
Go back to the alleged phone spoof a while ago. Not only are we news media, I was an alleged victim and yet the powers to be never informed me of the Pres Conference being held defending the Mayor. Even after I showed up, (uninvited) they refused to give me the paperwork from their investigation and told me I needed to file a Freedom of Information Act to access it.
Are you seeing now how Salisbury and Wicomico County works? YOU are paying incredible taxes and THEY are covering up what is really going on. YOU make an investment into a home here only to come to find out this area is NOT what you were lead to believe it actually is.
Salisbury and Wicomico County have many incredible people in it. However, they also have a LOT of people working very hard to bully some to make sure YOU don't know the TRUTH.
WE feel we should have the right and access to ALL information involving crime and our way of life. Don't hate me just because I disagree that Firefighters shouldn't be taking million dollar vehicles to lunch or dinner. Don't hate me because we feel it is wrong for a county employee to drink and drive in a county owned vehicle. Don't have me because we publish photos of police vehicles in a non emergency situation parking in handicapped spots for their personal use. Don't hate us because we have risen to the very top because we are the only ones actually informing the public what is really going on.
Recognize the fact that SOME people and businesses are failing because the TRUTH is finally being exposed. Because "We The People" are fighting back because we are NOT stupid. Are we the most educated, no. Funny how all those people with degrees can't keep up with one little BLOG though. Together WE are stronger! Go back to my New Years Post and read it again. WE are only successful because of all of YOU.
How many forums have we all been to where candidates that we have ultimately elected assured us we would see more open government. How's It Working For You Now?
