It’s happened over and over. Something is printed in a newspaper that an individual doesn’t like, so they try to hide it by stealing and trashing as many of the newspapers as they can find. How’s that usually work out for them?
In this case, it was police officers at MIT. One of them was caught dealing drugs and a story about it was wirtten in “The Tech”, the MIT paper. Two other officers have now been suspended after they dumped about 300 copies of the paper in a recycling bin. Of course, this didn’t stop the story from being published on the the paper’s website, and now it’s getting a lot more attention.
Seems to be like these two ought to be fired — not for what they did necessarily, but for showing just how short-sighted they are. I certainly wouldn’t want people that dumb to be working for me.
