Earlier today we broke this story about a Portland police officer getting arrested at the Ja Rule concert at the Palladium Saturday night. The officer, Zahra Abu, was Portland’s first Somali cop, and was touted as a symbol of progress as a black, Muslim woman.
Then shamelessly half an hour ago the Turtlegram and Gazette did this:
Just blatantly stealing stories. Hey George Barnes, have you no shame? Where’d you hear about this story? Just admit it – you get your news from us. Just like everyone else. We run the media in this town and always will going forward. We’re not gonna pull a Gaffney and sue you or anything, but just understand that everyone sees this and it’s embarrassing for you.
Here’s my question – why the hell are the Worcester Police giving information to the Turtlegram and Gazette and not Turtleboy? The cranky woman at the records desk who clearly hates her job said they couldn’t hand out the arrest report. Yet this cop hating media outlet that employs Clive McFarlane comes crawling and they get a statement? Sad state of affairs. Don’t worry, we’ll continue to be the only media outlet that doesn’t have an anti-police agenda and actually cares about printing the truth.
Here’s the Turtlegram’s Facebook page. Don’t flood their page and call them out for being frauds!! Please God, no!!
