Perry: Aurora police destroy public trust withholding details about cop shooting man through home window

Aurora Sentinel: We know the drill.

Aurora police get on their Twitter account to tell the public and the press that there’s been a shooting.

Then it turns out that it was an officer-involved shooting. “No officers were injured.”

Then, almost always via Twitter, or on an obscure blog roll, Aurora police offer something like this:

“On Thursday October 10th, 2019 at approximately 11:30 p.m. Aurora Police Officers responded to a residence in the 1500 block of South Bahama Street to investigate an assault when an armed adult male was encountered by officers. One officer discharged a firearm striking the armed male. He was then transported to an area hospital. The extent of his injuries are not yet known as they are still being evaluated. This is an active and on-going investigation, and no further information is available at this time.”
