It isn't really national news, it's specific to The City of Fresno. That and the media is oversaturated with 'bad cop' stories. Also, the story of the jailbreak just down teh road from there kind of stole this story's thunder.
>How would this not be national news?
Frankly shit like this happens dozens of times every day all over America. I could post similar stories from my local media if I wanted. (actually Ive already posted 5 /news/ stories on this IP address, lel)
