Who Maryland law protects — and who it doesn’t

“Internal records related to a police officer’s misconduct cannot be disclosed to the public and are exempt from the Maryland Public Information Act, the Court of Appeals ruled Thursday.” The ruling applies whether or not charges of misconduct are found to be true: the court found the law “does not differentiate between ‘sustained’ and ‘unsustained’ complaints” [Mark Puente, Baltimore Sun]

The law is there to protect misbehaving public employees. Don’t you wish it were there to protect you?
