Nether Prov and the Rumor Mill

The death of a Nether Providence police officer has sent the local rumor mill into overdrive.

Typically, our policy at the Daily Times is not to report on such sad incidents out of respect for the privacy of the family.

This much can be said, almost all of the rumors we've heard have turned out not to be true. We have checked them out with reliable investigative sources and can find nothing to them.

It is true that police from other municipalities have been patroling Nether Providence over the weekend last. This is only because members of the Nether Prov's small department are understandably devastated. They asked for and received some time off. These other patrolmen, fellow police officers from neighboring communities, were merely covering for them on their own time.

Sgt. Tom Six was buried yesterday. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. The Nether Prov police should be back in full force today, though with heavy hearts. Our best wishes to them too.

rumors r cheap. anything in writing? Maybe some disgruntled citizen had the misfortune of meeting this officer. If there was something in writing, verified then you can say there was a rumor. other than that what do you got?
