A Watertown man was arrested two days ago on an alleged sex rap involving a child. Now the story is reported based on his occupation. ( The occupation was said not to have been mentioned in the State Police press release).
Why is the fact this guy is a firefighter part of the story ?
Wal-Mart clerk arrested on sex rap?....How about an
Air Brake machinist ? Would you call the NYAB CEO to ask about it ?
They newsmeisters say because it's a matter of public trust ? In what way ?
We don't even know what the particulars are and we all know sex crimes are not always what they seem.
Now is it news because there is conflict over the FD ? Usually when a public employee is arrested for such a thing they are suspended with pay...No way the Third Floor wants to do that here.
I'd like to know the occupation and employer of everyone who is humiliated by having an arrest on the news.
And by the way....some of us insiders have seen how crimes are handled differently depending on who you are and where you work...
