I held close to many assumptions before I became a reporter.
Assumption #1: Police officers spend their time eating donuts and drinking coffee.
Assumption #2: Firefighters pass the work day by posing for calendar shoots and playing with Dalmatian dogs.
Unfortunately, as a society, we have painted these pictures of law enforcement officials that are not true.
Whenever anything bad happens in Cynthiana (think car accident, house fire, person trapped on a roof, etc.), I tend to see the same people.
