The police stalked, harassed and mistreated ordinary citizens whose political opinions they didn't like. Is this acceptable in a democracy? Is this acceptable in a society founded on freedom of thought and speech? Can our society survive secret police monitoring of law-abiding people who question government policy?

Jack McCoy

Governmental secrecy is anathema to democracy.

–Judge Lisa Pongracic
