Below is some of the stuff we filed FOIA on
We want to warn our viewers that what you will read, maybe disturbing to some.
Viewer discretion is advised.
Police said all FOIA requests on any Cold Cases, will be denied.
They said because it is an open case.
But yet the same department released body cam footage, 911 audio, etc…
of an incident that just happened a week ago.
Please explain what is different from an open case a week ago that is an open investigation, than a cold case years ago???
They are BOTH OPEN INVESTIGATIONS…
You release info on something that happened a week ago,
But you can’t release info on something years ago, to bring these victims families closure??? <shrugs>
* ANY FOIA requests for audio communications, they have denied.
They said it is “Unduly Burdensome”
Update: We have been posting the FOIA content as articles, instead of individual pages on our website.
