Police blotter items should not lead Patch's email notices. Police blotter items--the antithesis of initiative journalism, are pickings for the lazy. Police blotter items are anything-but-subtle sensationalist offerings, especially when placed as the lead category of what otherwise might pass for news.

The blotters are the best part of patch. Im pretty sure most people agree with that. So it would be stupid not to send email notices about these.
