Actionable Evidence

"It would appear the videos are evidence of criminal mischief ... or worse."

When corruption is reasonably suspected, what are the factors considered in proceeding with discovery? What is the significance of Open Records Reports and the like?

Few would argue that political retribution is a valid use of law-enforcement information sharing. As in Watergate, the real crime is often in the cover-up. When sensitive management is delegated to private vendors, not-pretty things can happen. Indeed, they have happened.

Security for the team is largely derived by the openness and continuous recording of events. Thanks to technology developments, there are few constraints on how thorough the coverage is.

A sleeping giant has been awakened.
