DEA Actively Hiding Information from Attorneys, Judges, Prosecutors

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin - not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to "recreate" the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant's Constitutional right to a fair trial. If defendants don't know how an investigation began, they cannot know to ask to review potential sources of exculpatory evidence - information that could reveal entrapment, mistakes or biased witnesses.

You might as well remove the excerpt completely and just leave the link. The excerpt has basically no information in it. After reading the story though, that is some bullshit. Just another way of circumventing our rights.

Everyone wants to have their name on this story by breaking a new piece of it. That's cute. It's the internet, no need to redact when it's proven false tomorrow.

I can't even find an article about those poor folks who had their door kicked in for googling. Wonder why?

I tried but:

"Your search returned no documents"

Maybe it's just my Google not working right.
It's much easier to PRESERVE an E46 than it is to RESTORE one.
