Its too bad this reporter did not do her homework before she wrote this article. All you had to do was read the police report to get the correct facts. I am pretty sure they teach you that in college journalism 101 double check your facts before you print a story and trish you obviously did not do that or you would have known the incident did not take place as the polleys home it took place at Denises home and she who is on probabtion for drinking and driving should not have been drinking her self,the police should have arrested herself for breaking her probation right there on the spot. As part of her probation is she is not supposed to be drinking even in her home. So do you belive the ramblings of a drunk who doesnt even have custody of her own kids or verify the facts. Looks to me like maybe you better go back to Journalism school.

THANK YOU SO MUCH K MCTAGGERT!!!
I am Daniel Meade's 15 year old (16 tomorrow) daughter...
I HATE how the press never gets anything right...
It's annoying and stupid... all they care about is getting the job done. They don't care about if it's right or not, they just want the story... it's so stupid...
I just wanted to say thanks k mctaggert for correcting this person who obviously has no idea what's going on...

Lindsay, I am so very sorry for you loss. I agree with you about the press, sometimes they can be cold and unfeeling. They really should have done a bit more research on their article before printing it. I also strongly agree with K. Mctaggert! You must have done your research!
