Beccera Fights Police Records Release

It’s a massive trove of records regarding police shootings, use-of-force incidents and officer misconduct…and the California Attorney General is trying to fight it’s release. Lawyers for Xavier Beccera say a new transparency law never intended to committ the extraordinary resources needed to vet so many records. They’ve gone before a state appeals court and asked it to do away with a lower court’s decision ordering the review and release of the records to news organizations that sued Beccera’s office.
