Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our post about the Denver Police Department obstacles being thrown in front of Complete Colorado's Todd Shepherd as he tries to get more information on the Michael Hancock prostitution story didn't spawn a lot of sympathy for his plight.

Here's one particularly cutting post.

I think I'll send a request of all law enforcement to produce evidence of any surveillance in any investigation depicting the Easter Bunny or any property or vehicle registered to the Easter Bunny. Then when they respond that "no such evidence exists" I'll have reason to hound them over the the "comment in the negative" on every single ongoing investigation to produce all evidence that they have.

See? I can stick my head up my ass and claim to be a journalist too!
