This stuff happens in Berkeley, CA???
It’s hard to believe, but this just came across the news:
Berkeley officials have retained an outside law firm to investigate the police chief’s decision to dispatch a sergeant to a reporter’s home in the middle of the night requesting corrections to a news story.
Meehan sent Sgt. Mary C. Kusmiss to the home of Bay Area News Group reporter Doug Oakley at 1 a.m. Friday morning to ask for changes to a story Oakley wrote about the chief’s comments at a community meeting the day before. The chief continued to demand changes throughout the following day in phone calls and e-mails, Oakley said.
Probably not surprising in Los Angeles, New York, Miami, etc… but Berkeley? Wow.
