Public information article

A coworker and friend of mine, Gordon Brander, sent me the link to a really good article today.

It’s quite an interesting read, and makes a lot of good points; please take a minute or two and look over it. I haven’t fully made a personal decision about it, but I do think this exposes some potentially serious flaws in the amount of information that the public has access to.

I am grateful for the police, the persons who truly do walk out the door each morning not knowing for sure that they’ll walk back through it that evening. I teach my children that the police are friends, and people they can trust. I just want to be sure that enough information is publicly available, so that officers can be held accountable for their actions — good or bad.
