Should Lawrence Police release dispatch recordings and special report from a fatal police chase in south Lawrence?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 10, 2003
“I guess I would answer that question with the question, ‘Will that hurt the chances of there being a fair trial?’”
“Very much so. It touches on everything that is wrong with the system. America is already based on fear to the point that controls need to be set by the people and not by institutions such as the police.”
“In the interest of public record, I think yes. But in regards to privacy of the family, I’d have to say no.”
“Yes, because a woman lost her life due to the chase. As soon as they got, during rush hour, to the intersection of 31st and Iowa ,they should have backed up.”
