Sergeant Al Vazquez of the NHPD Detective Bureau shared residents’ concerns about media sensationalism. The best way to prevent further “knockout” attacks is to educate New Haven residents as well as the media, Vazquez said. He explained that the media helps perpetuate the trend by continually covering it.
And if reporters would just stop covering hurricanes out in the oceans, they'd never reach our shores. Media sensationalism is practically goading the storms our way! Just don't give them the attention they're seeking, and they'll end their dramatic performance.
