The Altoona Police Department had enough bad publicity over the last three years from the bar fight.
The front page headline on Monday, Sept. 9, didn’t even have all the facts. Tuesday news headlines were not much better.
We don’t know this policeman, Matt Plummer, but his life and reputation could be ruined by “headline news” that shouldn’t even be published until all the facts are known – and then, when facts are proven, maybe second or third page.
Maybe the man who exposed his bottom to a busload of people should have his photo on the front page.
