v3rgEz (125380) writes As part of MuckRock's Drone Census, the San Jose Police twicedenied having a drone in public records requests — until the same investigation turned up not only a signed bid for a drone but also a federal grant giving them money for it. Now, almost a full year after first denying they had a drone, the department has come clean and apologized for hiding the program, promising more transparency and to pursue federal approval for the program, which the police department had, internally, claimed immunity from previously.
The tree of research must from time to time be refreshed with the blood
of bean counters.
