So really, this is a good idea. Though there already are guidelines in places matters such as these. Oh well people if you really want some courts records or information, and just don't want to pay for it. I know where you can go....to the Bennington Probation and Parole, they'll even email you anyones information.

Great! It will be a sort of a "Department of Redundancy Department"! More jobs for government!

You all want the media to "do some digging" but don't support anything that lets them do it.

never mind the media, try going in as a private citizen and getting something they don't want you to have.
