‘How?’ is the question left unanswered

The basics of reporting: Who, what, where, when, why and how.

Who: Inmate Scott Dozier.

What: Committed suicide.

Where: In his cell.

When: 4:35 p.m.

Why: Had threatened suicide before.

How: Under investigation.

That’s the “how,” according to the morning newspaper, as reported in the 23rd paragraph of the front page story.

Just about every other news outlet, including The Nevada Independent, reported he was found hanging from a bedsheet tied to an air vent in his cell in Ely State Prison.

    Like Whitey Bulger…”where there’s a will there’s a way”…It’s the last alternative method…Scott Dozier went the same way…Just turn your back and things will take their course…The State and the Feds are now using 3rd world tactics to solve their problems…Disgust for the crimes committed by all parties is beyond description…Will “WE THE PEOPLE” do likewise? Turn our backs? Yes, the RJ buried the “How”…as has the print media regarding Bulger, except to say…”It’s being investigated”!!!! AND thats’ what I expect the State will soon exclaim!!! There’s little Good any more! Just the Bad & the Ugly…
