Journalism Is Still Alive At The Sun-Sentinel
I'm not going to say a whole lot about the content of the recent Sun-Sentinel investigative series on police officers speeding in South Florida except that it's a serious problem that needs to be attended to from the top down in order for behaviors to change at the bottom.
I do want to say that I can't remember the last time that a South Florida newspaper did such a great in-depth job on a story like this one. Bravo to the Sun-Sentinel's Sally Kestin, John Maines and Dana Williams who collaborated on this excellent three-part series that included interactive maps, videos, photos and comprehensive analysis of records and reports. What would be nice to see is a followup story in another 6-12 months to determine if anything has changed.
Journalism still has a heartbeat in South Florida and, kind of surprisingly, you can hear it loudest these days north of the Golden Glades.
