    To WTVY. I am a loyal fan of your station. How ever you do not hesitate to publish this man's picture and story. I have noticed that when regular citizen like me do something wrong you will publish the story right away. but when the authorities or city employees do something wrong you will look the other way, may mention it once and thats the end of it. What about the story of the cop that shot that guy in Ozark, why haven't you said anything no more story no picture of the cop was published.
