    Ok, I accept your premise that this is "dumb". Do you accept the fact that law enforcement can give the media virtually no info? Otherwise, their case vs. the suspect is worthless. With that in mind, sir, what would you do differently?

    "A man was arrested at a McDonalds. Unnamed officers allege he broke a law or something. There is a possibility that a human being may have been hurt, although it is equally possible that no one was hurt."
