Trooper who fired gun inside Jason's Tavern won't be ID'd
After the Times appealed the redaction of the names in the police report provided by the Dennis Police Department, the department argued it could black out the former trooper’s name under an exemption in Public Records Law that allows agencies to withhold the names and addresses of any person “contained in, or referred to in, any applications for any licenses to carry or possess firearms.”
The purpose of the exemption is to prevent people “with devious motives” from finding out the identities of people who possess firearms, according to Murray’s determination.
