Colorado residents and regular readers of this blog have been following the story of the secret files Denver Police have kept on political activists. Hundreds requested to see their files yesterday, the first day that they were released. Only the people who are subjects of the files are allowed to retrieve them.
The Denver Post reports on the crowd that showed up, including:
Barbara Cohen, a member of Denver Copwatch, was surprised to see two entries in her 16-page file associating her with the Brothers Fast motorcycle club.
"I've never heard of them," she said. "I've never been on a motorcycle." The file also says she has an FBI number.
Hmmm, inacuracies in secret spy files? Say it ain't so. I think I'll go down and see if there's a file on me. I'd lay the odds at 3 - 1 against it.
