Callback From Yesterday and DPS' Press Machine




Remember that DPS announced they would have troopers in school buses or following them for this week? Let's take a look at that announcement.

Just like there was no trooper around or in the bus that was involved in the wreck this morning in Fort Worth, DPS probably isn't doing anything different this week. And you can't say they are lying in the press release. It just said:
  • troopers (plural so two would suffice) 
  • in "many areas" (how vague is "many" and "areas")
  • will either be 
    • riding on buses OR 
    • following them. 

That wouldn't take much, if anything, to satisfy the promise.  But they got the free and good PR out of it.
