Carnage, Cops And Deadlines
Roscoe C., Jr. BluntISBN: 1929039239;
Book DescriptionMurder, rape, prostitution, devastating fires, highway fatalities, bank robbers, shootouts, suicides, and high-speed chases are all part of the job. And so are petty politics, negative attitudes, vilification, second guessing, imperious editors and 3 a.m. phone calls. But for the very good police reporters there are moments of glory, great stories, recognition, awards and self-satisfaction. And of course, there is always the excitement and challenge. The conflicts between the press and authorities, the implacable deadlines, and the horror in the eyes of victims are graphically portrayed in a police reporter?s coverage, and they are the sum and substance of this book. Most intriguing is the behind-the-scenes view that is quite different from what you read about in the papers.
