Been harassed by the police? Yelled at by the anti-gun neighbors? Mother doesn't approve?
Then this is the place for you! Click here to get back at them!
Would that be a violation of the FOIA? When on the job these officers are public employees.
I would go so far as to say they are public servants.

A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.
They are public employees. And this is ridiculous. They get investigated because the public is sick of their crap so they going to be less transparent and close rank more? Way to earn our trust. And they say they don't like the us vs. them situation they have created.

of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
Hate to play devil's advocate here... but from what I understand, the city & union already agreed not to disclose such info in the previously-signed contract. To start doing so now would be a breach of that contract. It's as much the city's snafu for agreeing that that language in the first place. And yes, I do agree the whole situation is ********.
We're all for abiding by legally binding contracts (like the Constitutions) around here riiiiight?

yes, yes, yes!!they get investigated because the public is sick of their crap
On the topic at hand, somehow it really doesn't surprise me that the department is going to do everything to protect bad cops. That's how they all work. In my mind there really is no such thing as a good cop. Either the cop is bad, or they protect the bad, or they're too dumb, incompetent or scared to know the bad cop exists and do something about it. Any really good cop would be running the bad cops out. But like every other government agency, they are filled with graft and corruption.
