Last year, the Atherton police department requested that the city council permit them to destroy records of complaints Atherton taxpayers made about Atherton police officers.
Last year, the council wisely decided to draw the line at whether the officer is still employed with the APD. If so, the records don't get destroyed.
Now, the same proposal is back on the agenda for next week.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
The APOA-purchased city council led by Lewis, Wiest and Carlson undoubtedly will put the interests of the cops who don't want records of resident complaints following them around ahead of the interests of the taxpaying residents.
Shame on the APOA. Shame on Lewis. Shame on Wiest. Shame on Carlson.
Shame on Ed Flint for trying this again. This is not leadership.
