Court Rules Police No Longer Have to Release Information about Corrupt Cops to the Public | The Free Thought Project
Maryland — In a damning blow to transparency, the Maryland Court of Appeals ruled that information related to police misconduct cannot be disclosed to the public and is exempt from the Maryland Public Information Act …
… According to the Baltimore Sun:
The question before the state’s highest court centered on whether citizens have a right to know the outcome and other information about an investigation once misconduct allegations are sustained. In a 5-2 ruling, the court said the law exempts personnel information from disclosure and does not differentiate between “sustained” and “unsustained” complaints.
This bogus secrecy applies to the actual victims in the complaints!
We are constitutionally guaranteed the right to petition for relief and redress. The words were not written as a gesture of goodwill. They were meant to have teeth.
Officers are getting away with assaults, false arrests, molestation, rape and murder, and in the face of the ever-escalating brutality, our courts have allowed yet more civil immunities from prosecution.
Civil immunities provide “liberty and justice for some” … which couldn’t be less patriotic.
