Oh Dear

I guess I should have thought more carefully the other day before posting my slightly self-righteous take on the recent visit of Girls Gone Wild to Dewey Beach.

I was reacting to an early version of the story from the News Journal's web site. I started having doubts when I read the full version the next morning and now that I have read Ryan Cormier's take on the story and Mike M's on Down with Absolutes, I'm having even more.

Mike,
The issue here is how the Dewey Police respond to crime in the town? IF the girl is telling the truth, then it seems the police could be in hot water. IF the version of events the town is tossing about is true, then we have a bigger problem we hear of all too often; an underage drunk, out of control in the presence of two Dewey officers, and nothing is done about it? So much for enforcing the law. Both versions are a problem. All we are asking is "what is the truth, Dewey?" Over a dozen calls to the police chief have gone unanswered and unreturned, because he doesn't want to face our questions.

Unfortunately, we may never know the truth, Dan...because you and Jared destroyed the tapes containing this young woman's interview.
