Speeding cop cars on I-84 on Saturday night

What happened on Saturday night that led to at least 10 cop cars going at high speeds on I-84?
At about 9:15 p.m. on Saturday May 22, this writer witnessed at least 10 cop cars with lights and sirens proceeding at rates of speed on I-84 near 33rd Ave.

Later, around 10:30 p.m., another eyewitness stated that he witnessed a gold Cadillac riddled with bullet holes on the driver's side being towed away from the Shell gas station at NE 58th and Glisan. There were 5 cop cars with lights on around the station.

There is not report of any of this in the corporate news media (surprise!). Are the two events related? Does anyone know what happened?

In the dark... 24.May.2010 09:47


Always we're kept in the dark and prevented from knowing the truth about things from the 'corporate media'. They create our reality for us. It doesn't matter if it's true or not. They lie all the time about things that really happen. Or just completely avoid covering events that happen that should actually be a "news story". They are too busy telling us stories of fiction. Or they're spoon feeding us superficial crap that no one cares about (or no one SHOULD actually care about but many do). Lots of people don't want to know the truth about things. Whether it's a big news story or a small news story... the corporate media lies about everything.

If it doesn't get reported on the "news" did it actually happen??? What effect does it have when people are not 'informed' about things??? People are always being denied information and kept in the dark. The corporate media fails all the time. Consider the 'news blackout' on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

All I can say is "Media Reform". Also "BE THE MEDIA".
