News we rarely see.

I constantly search the web for news that is of interest to us. I try to go to original sources when I can. One of them is the FBI site. One thing I find odd is how few of the news stories I see there ever make into the mainstream media. That's one reason some of the things I tell you about haven't appeared on the evening news.

Why? Because they are GOOD news.

I thought you might like to see this week's headlines to see how much good news there is each week.

Instead of scaring you or worrying you, it might actually make you feel good to see how hard some of our law enforcement people work for us.

Here's a link if you'd like to read any of this week's stories. Try clicking on it and reading one or two of the stories. They say a lot.

Really, folks. Go out and see some of the things the FBI does all the time, and see how effective they are about protecting you. It seems unfair that they get so very little notice, and that the reason for that is the fact that the mainstream media only seems to report on things that go wrong. Here they are, all these people working for us, and doing so much, and we know so little about it.

If it were Payson PD making all these arrests, and preventing all these crimes, we'd hear about it here in the Roundup--as we do--and we'd feel good about it. But on a national level successful law enforcement seems to be ignored. Go take a look.
