Poll: GFPD Vs. The Great Falls Tribune

On Friday, the Great Falls Police Department issued a media release responding to a Tribune story about the Great Falls Rescue Mission. You can read the Tribune’s response to the GFPD release here.

Can anyone recall the GFPD ever scolding local media like this? The fact that our (excellent) police department felt compelled to make any kind of statement says a lot, frankly.

But what do you think? Do you agree with the GFPD, or did the Tribune get it right? Vote in our poll, and tell us why in the Comments…


Do you agree with the GFPD's statement about the Tribune's coverage of the Rescue Mission?

  1. Dex says:

    I generally never recommend challengeing any group that buys ink by the barrel to a war of words, but this time I think the Tribune jumped to a unjustified conclusion.

  2. Diane says:

    I feel Tribune should have done more unbiased research. Inferring that the Rescue Mission would sacrifice children’s well-being in fear of losing funding was a hasty judgement and unfair. Tribune should be appalled that the GFPD needed to set facts straight
    Conducting a poll on their “rightness” is laughable.

  3. Steve Gillespie says:

    “Our agency strives to provide all victims of crime with the best possible service in order to obtain justice.”?

  4. Rob says:

    Ever consider the PD was covering for one of their own with Kiser? Or that THEY did nothing to stop it?

  5. John says:

    Why wasn’t there any adults charged with negligence or anything else? Shouldn’t SOMEBODY be held responsible? The boy isn’t being punished. Why isn’t Anybody being punished??

  6. Marc says:

    Remember, this is a Completely Unscientific poll!

  7. Pat says:

    The Rescue Mission does a lot of great things and this is an on fortunate incident. These people are all volunteer. No matter what age. The GFPD are a fabulous group of people. Print some things positive for a change.

  8. Rick Tryon says:

    Looks like most of those commenting here completely missed the point. This isn’t about the Rescue Mission or the GFPD, it’s about the Great Falls Tribunes ridiculous and unfounded claim that this had something to do with a Rescue Mission building project.

  9. Rick says:

    Rick Tryon – There was no claim made by the paper. Unless asking a question is a claim in your mind. In my mind, that’s what reporters should be doing.
