St Louis & Ferguson PD perfidy

2014-08-26 16:49:15.428347+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

"Internet ate my email" is the new version of Reagan's "I don't remember", but it gets worse. Not only are the St Louis County and Ferguson police seeding lies and misdirection into press coverage, they're making up paperwork after the fact to try to cover up corruption: St. Louis County and Ferguson Police Violating Public Records Laws Regarding Michael Brown Shooting Death:

What is also clear from the record as well as my conversations with Lt. Burk – this record of this Incident Report was created in response to my request, rather than at the time of the incident as is normally required, and that it intentionally has been created to withhold the key narrative elements, normally provided and required under law, that make the report useful and that is what the public is seeking according to our rights under the law.
