Yeah, they start with the 2nd Amendment and then graduate to the 1st. Funny how that works.

Historic Threat Looms To Public’s Right To Know.
It is historic fact that police, particularly the state police, consistently violate the state’s Freedom of Information laws by refusing to release nonexempt information about ongoing criminal investigations. There are specific exemptions: signed statements of witnesses, investigatory techniques not otherwise known, uncorroborated allegations, for example. Otherwise, documents are presumed to be public, but the FOI Commission docket is clogged with complaints from citizens and the press seeking public information the police routinely withhold.

It's the FREEDOM bit that grates on them tyrants...

The only 'freedom' that rates with them is the freedom to oppress!

What part of this is surprising? Law enforcement is a function of the executive branch. The Chief Executive clearly considers himself to be above every law including the supreme law of the land. The chief law enforcement officer of the country - AGUS - is happily in contempt of congress. That being the case, we should not be surprised that members of local law enforcement consider themselves to be the masters of the populace instead of our protectors. There is an old proverb that goes something like this: When small men begin to cast long shadows, it is a sure sign that the sun is setting. We have some truly small men casting exceedingly long shadows. What else can that mean but the sun is setting - on our republic, our culture and on our very civilization. When the sun DOES set, then I fear Dr. Malthus' thesis will be proven horribly correct.

The Creator have mercy on us.
