Undocumented Opinion

I have to admit I don't have all the documentation for this that I wanted to get together.
The fact is I am woefully unprepared.  I will try to fix that. but I must comment on the events of this past or rather the news of this past week.
It seems that a certain police department shot and killed a man who was already in custody and in handcuffs in the back of a police car when an officer shot him with an AR-15. 
Then another department had its officers arrest a man and then after he was down on the ground and, again, in handcuffs, they proceeded to beat him to the point that he required hospitalization and later died from the beating. 
AGAIN the officers were cleared of any wrongdoing.
Cal State University administrators have managed to keep their salaries and bonuses secret by a bureaucratic two step worthy of Tammany Hall.  Apparently the way they spend our money is none of our business.
As well as the Cal Legislature budget... They are claiming that THEIR budget is none of our business.
In a recent example of in-fighting between members the majority leader, who controls the office budgets of individual members, slashed the budget of a member who didn't toe the party line and when said member balked and spoke to the press the Iron Curtain fell, "privileged information"  or some such legal fiction to prevent the public from getting any ideas about actually seeing what is going on in Sacramento behind our backs.
More stories in that vein, but I will get my facts and documents together before continuing.
Thank you...
