Phoenix Police chief says manhunt intensifying for suspect who shot officer – YouTube

This news interview is a perfect example of how the local news media supports law enforcement. Chief Williams did an excellent job conveying the police department’s message and the risk to the community. Chief Williams also showed the awesome community support that the PD was receiving.

The news reporter showed his concern for the officers and the community and the need to support to PD.

This is vastly different that what is shown in the national news (excluding Fox News and Newsmax TV). It is refreshing to see and it should remind us all of the local support that police receive.

God Bless the Phoenix officers that are injured and their families so they can get through these difficult times. God bless the Phoenix PD because everyone in the department is suffering from these attacks. Thanks to the Phoenix community for their support.
