Although we’re partners, I have problems with the Daily Times on mornings like this. Page 8 devotes a full page to a Pottstown shooting featuring two photos of the black alleged perps under the Local (news) banner.
The bad guys are from Philly, the crime occurred in Montgomery County, and I just can’t find a single reason why us Delaware County people need 3/4 of a page to read details of this crime.
Whether it's true or not, it almost feels like they have to find some black crime from some where to fill a page. It’s not the first time this has happened. I’ve seen stories with photos of black criminals from outside the state on more than one occasion.
Maybe this is a big story on TV news (which I rarely watch) so the paper feels they must chime in, too. Or, maybe it’s the big story from their sister paper, The Mercury, and want to give them a plug.
For my taste, I wish the Daily Times simply keeps it local. The chances of us Delaware County folks having any information to contact the Pottstown police or Montgomery County Detectives is rather slim.
