I have been slacking on my police accountability work lately, mostly because I have grown very frustrated with how little and slow the progress is, and how little people seem to care. BUT, once in a while, the needle moves in the direction of open and transparent government.
The Laurie’s List was released last week. This is fantastic news for accountable policing! There’s still a lot of work to be done, but it’s always great to see years of work come to fruition.
Last week I said this on Facebook:
Looks like the Laurie’s List of Bad Cops has finally been released–only partially because what else you can you expect from corrupt people?

* 28 names being removed the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving (http://indepthnh.org/…/ag-removes-28-names-from-laurie…/);
* Approx. 13 sealed (i.e. “secret”) cases now in NH Courts–secret courts to listen to secret cases about secret bad police, tsk, tsk, tsk. BUT… progress…https://www.wmur.com/…/new-hampshire-police…/38636851https://htv-prod-media.s3.amazonaws.com/…/laurie-list…
