  1. What’s to reply. As usual the reporting here sucks. No facts, no nothing other than someone died.

    1. We reported what the SAPD posted in their press release. Your animus should be focused on the SAPD. However in their defense they probably cannot be very forthcoming as this case will no doubt end up in litigation.
