What Actual In-depth Reporting Looks Like

This is the second part of a multi-part story that ran in the local "conservative" newspaper concerning recent events in the Greensboro police department.

There are reasons why this particular reporter (who is probably most famous for the book Bitter Blood) doesn't work for the mainstream paper in town anymore.
