Cody has grown up,this was not a burglary,@11:00 in the morning,dressed in sky blue&white,dressed for job hunting,which was what he and riley had been doing for the two previous hours, which i can prove,w/a jogsearch worksheet i got from the probation office. Cody knocked on the glass window,w/ force as the sign on window stated,Knock Hard.the glass broke,end of story.

So what....he was looking for a job when he broke the window? Get real...that is not even believable. And why do you know how he was dressed? This comment REEKS.

I don't mean to be inflammatory here, Ms. Steele. My apologies in advance if I sound harsh but isn't it the job of the news to report the news as it happens rather then when you get it?? I see plenty of "breaking news" stories on other newspapers. Just curious.

not only was the news old, it was incorrect as cody is only 19.: and the residence reported in paper is a tattoo and glass shop w/ very large sign advertising business name and logo.. up until this incident catered to a large crowd of teenagers and young adults. witnessed by myself as i drove by on previous occasions. Cody was there to check out tattoos. sign in front instructed cody to go to back door, then sign on window instructed whom ever to knock hard. He did ,a very angry young man came to back door,wanting to know what cody wanted cody told him he wanted to look at tattoos, person told cody to leave, he did.My apologies,as i mean no offence,just want to get the facts out there.

Jeeze! Are you going to testify to all of this at this personís trial? The individual who lives or works at the residence/business/tattoo shop apparently did not see the incident the same way you do. This is why the police were called in, this is why he told them Cody was breaking in, and this is why he was arrested. It had to have happened this way because the SCPD are not exactly top of the line law enforcement. This kind of thing usually has to be literally handed to them.

Now if this Cody person the alleged burglar, all spiffed up ready to go job hunting near the tattoo shop, had to look at tattoos before job hunting then just how serious is he about finding work, joining the National Guard or enrolling in ITT (is there an ITT in Silver City?) However, that damn sign instructing Cody to go to the back of the shop and knock hard on the window ruined his chances of being a productive citizen. Damn sign.

As for the news being "old". Most reporters are not psychic. They get most of their stories from police reports and if the police do not file certain reports as soon as the incidents take place,(first, they have to decide if the reports need a re-write or be filed at all. You are after all in Grant Co.) then there is nothing to report is there?
The only thing that has improved in Grant Count in years is the news reporting.
Thank you Christine Steele, you go girl.

I understand your question is for Ms. Steele. You need to understand the politics involved. The agreement between the city manager, the mayor, the police chief and the newspapers is "no news is good news". I believe if it wasn't for this forum, the citizens would have no idea of the crime in this community. The powers that be don't want to "advertise" our crimes. The mayor has taken reporters to task for doing their job. I believe an uniformed public is an unsafe community.

New Mexico Native: There's nothing inflammatory about your question and I'm happy to answer it. Here's what I can tell you:
We get a daily (most days) blotter from the Silver City Police Department, and a weekly blotter from The Grant County Sheriff's Office and also weekly from Central Dispatch on the tri-cities (Bayard, Santa Clara, and Hurley), both on Monday. We run all of those blotters (or try to) every Tuesday. Each time we receive a blotter from an agency, we look it over and request incident reports on items that we think call for a little more depth - shots fired, burglaries, assaults, etc. When we get those reports we look them over and write crime briefs from them.
On some crimes where law enforcement has made an arrest, sometimes we get a press release from the law enforcement agency, or sometimes we get a tip from a member of the public. If it's a tip, we follow up by calling the agency that has jurisdiction (City, County, Campus Police, etc.) We interview law enforcement and write a story based on that interview, or if the information has been provided to us in a news release, we write from that. Sometimes those news releases are provided to us several days after the incident occurred, as was in this case.
We do post breaking news stories on our website - as was the case with two missing hikers last fall, and in other instances. I hope that helps. You are also free to email questions or call the newsroom at any time with questions. The information can be found on the Contact Us page on our website.

Thanks for the clarification. It debunks a lot of the myths floating around on this forum.

What agreement are you talking about??? While a handful of credible info comes from posters, a lot of what goes on on this forum is pure speculation, gossip and opinion. I went straight to the source and got what I feel is a truthful answer. If the "powers that be", whoever they are, are scrubbing the blotters then perhaps it is time for someone to raise an issue about it, other than on the topix forum. Nonetheless, I agree with you in that an uniformed public makes for an unsafe community.

Honey, you have the right theroy but the wrong paper. The Silver City Daily Press is the newspaper with the "no news is good news" motto. Do you think law-enforcement is going to give the press an accurate story on some crimes? Or that they do not tweak their reports?

People buy a Police scanner and get the real facts our town has more crime than you think. As a matter of fact its totaly out of control. If you do buy one I bet your next purchase will be a gun then the next will be a concealed carry permit.

The mayor, city manager and police chief have an agreement to censor news? That's about the dumbest accusation I have ever read.

Some of you folks never cease to amaze me with your conspiracy theories. LOL!
