He allegedly "saluted" a police officer. Is anyone proofreading the articles in this paper? On the other hand, if he indeed saluted the officer, why then was he arrested?

Why wasn't this news item "sent for approval" before being reported.

Yeah, but they are quick to pull your post if you use derogatory words even though it aptly describes the situation, issue, or incident. Their favorite cliche, "sent for approval". Sound like it will reaapear if it meets their criteria, but it never does.

I've never had a post "sent for approval" not show up in a few minutes. You must be posting things that are either highly derogatory, insulting or blatantly false.

I beg to differ, foursun. I've had posts "sent for approval" that didn't meet any of your criteria. Sometimes they are gone for good, and sometimes replies to other readers show up again further down the queue, where they don't belong. As a former editor, I would not tolerate a proofreader who missed such an obvious error as "saluted" vice "assaulted." That person's next job would involve having to ask the question "Do you want fries with that?"

The S*A just proved my point. Two minutes ago, I responded to your post. It showed up momentarily, not flagged "sent for approval," yet it is now is gone. In it, I pointed out that replies "sent for approval" often are reinserted lower in the queue, where they no longer are linked to the original post. I guess mentioning the S*A by name is not "civil" or "in good taste." As I type this, I have the feeling it, too, will be "sent for approval." Whether it returns or not is anyone's guess.

New law passed last year made it unlawful to salute a police officer.

Stupid law. Saluting a police officer is like flashing a shaka to the officer. Or, is that also unlawful?

It depends on how many fingers end up making the shaka....much like how many fingers the reporter used to type the article.
