This article feels funny to me. It kind of seems like a paen to the Utah State Patrol while avoiding actual reporting on critical issues.

What was “heated” in the meetings you were talking about? What were the controversial subjects being discussed?

What got done?

What do you mean when you talk about different perspectives? I’m afraid I’m left to guess because you didn’t report on that.

In fact, it feels like you didn’t report on much of anything other than history that doesn’t touch much of what happens in Utah today.

I went into your article hoping I would learn something about racism and countermeasures in the Utah State Patrol.

What I got instead was a lot of catchphrases that could mean almost anything. The only thing I learned from this article is that the reporter probably thinks that Utah State Patrol is pretty cool.

I’d be interested in reading a real article the reports on what’s actually going on. I was able to discern that something controversial is happening, but the reporter chose not to tell us what that is. That’s a shame.
