Wanna rate your local LEO? Sorry, it could be dangerous.

So, somebody had the great idea to put up a website where I could rate my cop. It only lists publicly available names of officers (no undercover agents, no other personal information). It allows local people to rate their LEO's. Pretty cool, watchdog-ish idea, huh?

Well the po-po don't think so, and neither did the sites host, The coppers come out with the usual "fears":

"Having a website like that puts a lot of law enforcement, in my eyes, in danger because it exposes us out there," Officer Hector Basurto, vice president of the Latino Police Officers Association, told ABC television affiliate KGO.

Gosh, wouldn't want anything being "exposed" would you? You know what they say about US when we talk about our privacy? "What do you have to hide?"
