The Baltimore Sun's thorough news coverage of Officer William Porter's trial has been very good—we admire and are admittedly jealous of its massive staff and resources, of which it takes full advantage—but then there was Tricia Bishop's tone-deaf op-ed, "What would you have done in William Porter's shoes?" Bishop cites a 2012 Sun investigation that showed 2,600 people showed up injured at Central Booking. But instead of worrying about the slew of medical problems that cops ignored during transports (the two most common symptoms: chest discomfort and shortness of breath—potentially serious, urgent signs), she channeled defense lawyers nearly verbatim, noting that transporting folks to ER is a big time suck for cops. She concluded: "Here's your choice: Risk wasting resources, which will leave some streets unpoliced; or gamble with two lives — your own and his. You decide." It's a deeply troubling kicker that equates Porter's jail time with Freddie Gray's death—and seems to suggest, with a shrug, that police can't be blamed for choosing efficiency and order over human life.
