Why is it that the bureaucratic instinct is to cover up?
Minneapolis has a Chief’s Citizens Advisory Council. Yesterday, Google indexed the page and it was accessible. Today there is a notice that the computer has to be checked for five seconds before the site can be accessed. After much more than five seconds, the browser times out and announces an error.
I have taken screen grabs and added them to copies of what used to be abvailable to the public.
Are the powers that be embarrassed about having had only two non-public meetings in three years?
Are they sorry to have published the names and contact information for 32 people whose time was wasted for no good reason? They should be.
Where, by the way, is Chief Arredondo? I doubt the Mayor is responsible for this mess.

Let me just add that I think the racism excuse is an invitation to do nothing about bureaucratic incompetence and abuse.
