So many people smell so many rats in anything related to Ed Boks and LAAS, that because the department allegedly has received an excessive number of Requests for Public Records, they are now refusing to respond--illegally.
Brad Jensen has submitted a RPR that asked for a list of those who have submitted RPRs to LAAS since Boks became GM, to determine if there was excessive redundancy in the requests and what "excessive" means.
I'd like to know too. I made a RPR in March of 2006 and never got a response. At that time I was looking to see if anyone was trying to get any emails sent between Boks and myself.
I understand the department and Dov Lesel routinely ignore such requests. Mr. Jensen was lucky he got any response at all to his requests for impound data that led me to charge the department with alleged Hayden violations. Of course, since then--and it has been lots of months--his requests have fallen on deaf ears.
(I had thought of doing a request of the records Ed generated during their alleged investigation of the hundreds of records involved in answering my charges of Hayden violations. I knew they had the data because Ed said they generated it after my allegation. But I didn't because I didn't have the time to do a proper analysis.)
This is especially troubling as Boks's statistics on impounds and dispositions have become so weird that it is a full-time job just to guess at how he arrives at his figures. We just want to understand what has happened to the missing animals, such as the 291 missing neonates from May and June.
