Your Police Unions At Work
I'm not sure what to think of Senate Bill 1019, the recently killed legislation that would have added more transparency to our law enforcement agencies in regards to accusations of wrongdoing. I don't know enough of the details so will withhold comment.
I am sympathetic, though, to the law enforcement side if only because of the vitriol we've seen on the Humboldt blogs against what seem to be any and all law enforcement personnel.
That said, Steve Greenhut, takes a look at how that bill was killed and makes some good points in regards the process and the law itself. What should be most disturbing is that this isn't just a special case in Sacramento. It happens all the time.
