Sure hope all the bad guys did not take advantage of the sheriff's office being in a bad situation.

The use of the word 'journalism' is an oxymoron in this instance. It is simply misleading writing.
There are too many instances in TV and written media writing, where sensationalism pushes aside objective and truthful reporting of the facts of a story or incident.
Burying the power lines is not practical. The cost would be astronomical and, when they go bad, which they will due to water leaks, dig ups, e.t.c. outages would be very extended.
You would not want to pay the cost on your bill of putting everything underground. Aerial cable is cheap, but also prone to outages due to trees, lightning,ice, e.t.c. That being said, repair of aerial cable is much more simple and fast during an outage.
Be careful what you wish for!
