A terrible ruling came down yesterday. The California Supreme Court ruled that Law Enforcement agencies may alert prosecutors that a deputy who might testify in a criminal case has a history of misconduct. Here's why that's so bad.
First I need to tell you that a was a police officer. And I think a darn good one. Now my personal files are clean. No negative reviews or disciplinary action. But let's say I had something that was put in my file. Why does that matter? What bearing would that have on a present crime committed? They say a judge has discretion on what to reveal, but that in itself is scary. What say you?
