You would think that the local media would understand that the reason why the Sheriff’s Office bailed and other agencies had to step in would have been obvious. Or, perhaps the bruised egos of the local media whose boy got crushed by 16.58% were at play.
Stan Sniff was a no-show at the blue light event but only soon-to-retire Cheryl Evans was present. NBC Palm Springs had a seemingly unrelated story that did not connect the dots.
That’s why she says the Blue Light ceremonies that show support to families of fallen officers during this time of year mean everything, “It means that they’re not forgotten and we’re not forgotten,” adding when she found out the department her husband worked for canceled the ceremony this year she was devastated, “I thought nobody really cared about us anymore.”
But that feeling didn’t last long, after hearing about this, two departments stepped up to hold the ceremonies: the Palm Springs Police Department and the Riverside Police Department.
Missing, of course is mention that it was Stan Sniff that attempted to cancel the event. January 8th can’t get here soon enough.
