    I see. Like you, I was expressing an opinion. It seems that you can have an opinion about the logbook but I can't.

    Bob Smith: If you're at a point where the biggest concern or worry in your life is how the LNS bloggers feel about how the police logbook is printed here then consider yourself fortunate. You seem pretty ticked off at others for simply having an opinion on how the police logs are presented.

    If you're at a point where the biggest concern or worry in your life is how the LNS presents their police logbook consider yourself fortunate.

    I like the way they are presented, and I don't try to figure out LNS politics or racial leanings by what is in the text. Have you ever considered that LNS gets a summary of calls from the police blotter and puts them in word for word, then adds in their caption? The wording on these sounds like what would be expected from somebody phoning these in to the police, and they would be describing the person committing the act. If that person happens to be black then I'm sure that gets reported. It would then be part of the report that the LNS receives from the police.

    You want to debate things, debate why a person would feel the need to report the color of the person committing the act. Don't debate why LNS doesn't edit that out of the summary they receive from the police. You think they're going through the log and deleting the word "white"? No. It wasn't part of the initial report called into the police so it's not included in the summary.

    You want the LNS to start editing these reports so as not to offend? Whitewash the news? You're the same people who complain about LNS whitewashing things in the first place, now you want them to edit things more to your liking?

    These reports give us a glimpse into reality, of the things that our police have to deal with. Also, like it or not, these give us a snapshot of what is happening to our city. I guess the dose of reality is a little too much for some people to face.

    Joey Grace: I agree. I'm put off by the way these calls are presented here.

    Amen, Jay Samone. Welcome to livable, lovable white Lodi! It'll never change thanks to the owners of the Lodi News-Sentinel, who seemingly publish trash like this.

    Better yet Joey - ask why "a black male" was identified throughout the logbook entries, yet no other race was identified with all of the other calls. Is this the SAME black man that was in all the entries or does the city have a rash of drunk black men hanging out at the Chevron station....I don't think these are funny either and I would personally prefer we had a page similar to the Stockton Record. They name names and report the incident as it occurred, not to get a few laughs...

    Whoever writes the logbook needs to stop trying to be funny. The humor used is at the expense of others. This newspaper represents Lodi, and Lodi doesn't believe in taking cheap shots at other people's mistakes. I like to know what is going on in my city, but I want facts, not smack talk.
