Standard-Examiner: Prosecutors Resist Stewart Attorney's Subpoena for Police Training Manuals

Sodden query: Why the need to be so secretive?

By Phoenix Smith

More from the Standard-Examiner this morning, concerning the Matthew Stewart case.

So if the police were doing as these manuals tell them to do, why are the Weber County prosecutors objecting to Defendant Stewarts' defense team having them?
Considering this was such an awesome job by police, decorated by awards and promotions, why the need to be so secretive?

 Nice analysis from S-E reader Harrisville Veteran in the S-E comments section:

“The materials sought are irrelevant to any issue in this criminal proceeding.”

How are the materials irrelevant in this case? In any industry whether it be production, construction, military or law enforcement an employee is at fault for their personal injury if they disregard procedure learned in formal training. They should produce the materials and prove these officers acted in accordance with their training.

Like they tell us, if you aren't doing anything wrong, why are you covering up?   Police have become the thugs of the 21st century.  Criminals that get to walk away, empowered by the state and not accountable for anything.
