Saratoga Sheriff Stonewalling PINAC on Records After Arresting

Last month *PINAC* broke the story of a Saratoga deputy [**who slapped a man on camera**](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/11/new-york-deputy-slaps-citizen-allowing-search-car/) for refusing to let his car be searched. After [**PINAC’s coverage**](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/11/pinac-news-podcast-episode-1/) helped the story go viral, the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department [**arrested and forced the resignation**](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2014/11/saratoga-deputy-arrested-slapping-citizen-video/) of Sergeant Shawn Glans.

Fast forward to one month later, and the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department is still stonewalling PINAC’s public records requests.

PINAC correspondant Douglas Hester reports:

> “Saratoga County NY finally sent me a HEAVILY redacted copy of the radio traffic log in the Shawn Glans/Colin Fitch incident last month. From the little they gave me it looks like the names of the other deputies (at least one of which participated in the illegal search of the car) were Daurio and Willetts. Their unit IDs were 4125 and 4123, respectively. There were also respective numbers of 7 and 8 attached to their names, don’t know if that means badge numbers, car numbers or what. The rest of the page is blacked out. The accompanying letter states that the case has been referred to a special prosecutor and that I have to petition him for the other info I requested. Of course I will do so.”

Stay tuned for updates on the status of PINAC’s public records request, because we’re just getting started on this one.

The heavily redacted traffic log is posted below.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
