In the six weeks or so that we’ve been following the fall of decorated Corvallis police officer Dave Cox, we have consistently been met with an official blue wall of silence when we’ve sought comments, information and reaction.
We make an issue of this because it’s fair to get both sides to a story. Sometimes officials caught in an uncomfortable issue hope that their silence will encourage the media to move on and forget about it. But that won’t happen this time.......You’ve heard it before, but it’s never been more apt: This is a case when the public does indeed have a right to know.
The community outcry.

I've been investigating police abuse for 20 years now since I started with the Call Post, worked as an AAG and then successfully sued over police abuse so it's kind of tough to pull the wool over my eyes, but more importantly, like the Corvallis Gazette-Times, I actually have the chutzpah to tell the truth instead of providing negative reinforcement for LE who run amok, as most of the major press has done in the Franconia shooting tragedy.
