The case of the environmentally-friendly campus police officer censors

From the Boston Globe, 3/28/09:
Two MIT police officers, apparently unhappy with the student newspaper's coverage of a fellow officer's recent arrest for drug trafficking, did the only thing they could think of to block the bad news: They trashed it.

The officers were nice enough to put the newspapers in the recycling bins, not the trash, however -- a fact that the lead is somewhat ambiguous about. Here's a link to the full story in the Globe, along with a link to the original story in The Tech, MIT's student newspaper.

  1. Hilarious (in a weird sort of way). I once knew of a district attorney (I'm not making this up) who did the same thing with a local weekly paper that ran a story critical of him.
