The large headline read "Officer shoots, injures West S.L. man."
That headline immediately makes the officer guilty and is pure sensationalism. Reading the article, one finds the officer was defending his life and witnesses verify that. Why not give the officer the benefit of the doubt with headline reading, "Man attacks officers and is shot"?I, with many others, just are repulsed by irresponsible journalism day after day after day.

Editor's note: The headline as written states a fact: The officer did indeed shoot and injure the man. Lorna Johnsen's headline says the man attacked the officers, which has not yet been proved in a court of law.
