Why does the police department feel compelled to advise the media of this tragedy? There have been over 80 suicides this year and I can't recall reading about one in the paper or seeing it on television. I am sure someone in that 80 suicides had some standing in their profession or community. We don't have to tell the media everything.

Conrad probably doesn't want anyone to know that this suicide appears to be at least partially work related. He took his own life the very night we started on the 8hr, 6 on 2 off schedule.

Why would they do anytbing that could possibly cause compassion for the dept? It would remind the public thay LEO'S are, gasp, human beings. Now, if therr was done sort of wrongdoing or reason to give him negative attention they would he all over it.
