Supreme Court rejects appeal in a police accountability case

The Supreme Court rejected an appeal from a Connecticut police union challenging a police accountability law that has Democrats fired up.

The decision stops the public disclosure of some state trooper files and internal investigations in the state.

"At issue were documents in internal probes that end with no finding of wrongdoing. The union argued the 2020 state law violated the 2018-2022 troopers' contract by stripping away its exemptions from state freedom of information laws and allowing such documents to be publicly released," STL Today reported.

"Union officials say troopers oppose the law because it allows records involving unfounded allegations to become public, possibly tarnishing a trooper's reputation despite no findings of wrongdoing," it added.

The ruling will help protect police officers in the state with consequences nationwide.

Despite calls from the left for more police accountability, certain areas should be allowed privacy to back the blue rather than defund or demean the police.
