Steve Henson: Burying big stories

Regarding the Dec. 21 news article “ NYPD: Man kills two officers after anti-police posts”: I am truly disturbed by your coverage of the latest national events that have a racial tone.

When reporting about police officers being accused of wrongdoing and not getting indicted by grand juries, it is front-page news. But when two innocent police officers, who put their lives on the line every day to protect our society, are gunned down in broad daylight and the motive was clearly a retaliation to those same lack of grand jury indictments, it warrants no better than Page 7A? How utterly disrespectful and biased can a newspaper be.

It is a total shame and causes The N&O to lose all credibility as a news source.
