Police K9 Apprehends Attempted Murder Suspect

I find it interesting that KEYT "News" reports NOTHING about crimes, even MAJOR crimes that occur in Santa Barbara. Their "news" consists of COVID and Weather. Isn't there some FCC requirement to actually have to inform the public on local news events of significance to use the airwaves...?
