City officials say the reports deal with personnel issues and are thus not open records.
Copy and paste the link:
These Records Need to be public Matter unless They deal with Minors.
Well, since Yellow House is a public store, perhaps all of their records should be made public too, right?
Also, excluding minors makes no sense. Protecting personnel records regarding complaints of police misconduct is doing so for privacy reasons of the individual officer. Why would complaints involving an officer's misconduct against minors be kept private, while everything else is made public?
Because it is government not private.
Its getting hot in here All that hot air blowing from Khatib. Police are to "protect and to serve". People who are calling for help should know what officers have been disciplined and for what. Who do you know who to trust? The criminal or the police? "Nothing to hid"? Huh? Not to mention tax payers are paying salaries. I hope Merriam gets things uncovered in Lawrence.
