The issue at hand is the illegal violation of my privacy in that a tracking device was secretly and unlawfully placed on my vehicle.
For my safety and that of everyone around me, I naturally filed a police report, as any citizen would and should.
The media is unfortunately aggressively pursuing and publishing details, some of which should be private and confidential, such as my cell phone number, in their attempt to create salacious and divisive “news.” Our police station and town hall are being barraged with phone calls and emails, diverting them from their priorities in law enforcement and civic management, and taxpayer dollars are being wasted as well. A very fine career detective has been suspended for a moment of poor judgment for succumbing to media invasiveness.
It is my, and everyone’s, responsibility to take routine action when any law is broken. I hope the law enforcement officials can continue to do their jobs in spite of media speculation, pressure and poor conduct. Thank you.
