Richmond police, anarchists at odds

By Richmond Times-Dispatch

Richmond's police chief is seeking the return of documents the department turned over to a local anarchist group and posted online.

Chief Bryan T. Norwood said in a complaint filed this week in Richmond Circuit Court that Mo Karn received documents exempt from release under her request under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act.

Norwood alleges that the public dissemination of the documents endangers city police officers in citizens, specifically because the information includes tactical strategies police employ during emergencies.

Karn tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that her group sought the documents to learn the department's rules and monitor whether they're being followed.
