Is Sam Cook of the News Press Trained?
Special Guest Editorial Written by Sheriff Mike Scott
For many years the News-Press allowed Larry Alan Cook aka “Sam Cook” to conceal his real name, pontificate from its platform, and point his pudgy fingers at everyone else despite his felonious record (attached as a reminder) and penchant for DUI, Leaving the Scene, and related issues of concern.
Also attached for your review is an arrest report from earlier today. It seems the fellow pictured here was skirting a crime scene this morning and created an unnecessary distraction for our brave Deputy. Read for yourself how yet another News-Press Reporter has run afoul in what can only be described as a blatant disregard for the law and a clear demonstration of a propensity to lie. At least he uses his real name; although I suspect it is not too late for him to assume an alias and continue the good work of our hometown paper.
Had a current or former member of law enforcement, teacher, firefighter, etc. conducted themselves in this fashion, I am certain it would generate a bold headline but something tells me that the hypocrites at the News-Press will not deem it worthy of a headline if even any mention at all. Whether or not other media deem it newsworthy is yet to be determined but I seriously doubt it. As I quipped once before when a Fox 4 Reporter (John Rupollo) found himself in our corner at Monroe and MLK for domestic violence, the righteous media seems slow to report on its own.
Feel free to share this with others if you find it of interest. Meanwhile, I remain on high alert for paper airplanes departing from the jail and landing a few blocks east in the Gannett parking lot. What better way for Mr. Culver to submit his next “story?” Read the arrest report click here
