Editorial outrage is selective

Journal editors are in a bit of a dither this morning, link.
They think the investigation into corruption in the Office
of the Secretary of State
is taking too long;

"... it's past time for a defendant and taxpayers in a nation built on laws to see a little justice delivered."

"Regardless of who is responsible for this case dragging on, the public deserves better."
The scandal in the leadership of the APS, link, has been going on for three times as long; and the Journal editors, if their record is any indicator, could not care less.

A publicly funded private police force has been charged with investigating it own corruption. They have been at it since February 2007. Statutes of limitation on criminal misconduct have expired and still, not one shred of evidence or testimony has been turned over to the District Attorney's Office for prosecution.

The truth about the ethics and accountability scandal in the leadership of the APS is legitimate fodder for the political discourse surrounding the upcoming school board elections.

It will not be discussed at all.
Thanks to Editor Kent Walz,
who is yet to offer any good
and ethical justification for his
failure to investigate and
report upon credible evidence
of a standards and accountability
debacle in the leadership of the APS.

There is, in truth, only one
reason to not investigate and
report upon the scandal, and that is if there were no scandal.

Walz won't say, "there is no scandal; there is no cover up of corruption in the APS Police Department".

Apparently, he doesn't have the stomach for a baldfaced lie.

So he will continue to pretend that there is no problem.
His newspaper of record will hide the record rather than illuminate it.

Between them, cronies; Winston Brooks, Marty Esquivel,
and Kent Walz, the outcome of an election will be manipulated.

Voters will cast their ballots oblivious to the scandal.
