So the staff at the Willamette Week went out searched the officials garbage.

It's worth emphasizing that our junkaeological dig unearthed no whiff of scandal. Based on their throwaways, the chief, the DA and the mayor are squeaky-clean, poop-scooping folks whose private lives are beyond reproach. They emerge from this escapade smelling like--well, coffee grounds.

But boy, did the mayor and police chief dislike it when the tables were turned.

The DA, by contrast, merely found the whole thing amusing.

Yeah. The police always say that about CCTV, "If you are doing nothing wrong you should not mind being filmed." But if you try filming the cops on a public street you're a terrorist.
