I find this extremely upsetting:
While investigating the tip about Misch’s magazine purchase, Vermont State Police learned that a therapist had called the Bennington Police Department in October to alert the department that a woman she was treating had stated concern about Misch’s collection of guns and ammunition and his “predatory and intimidating behavior.”
Donovan said Bennington police did not disclose the therapist’s phone call to his office during its months-long investigation into the racial harassment of Morris.
So if I have a client who’s talking about her boyfriend/brother/neighbor and I call to notify the police or crisis workers that I’m hearing concerning things (and I have made these calls) I have to worry that the cops are going to release the information to the media, potentially putting both my client and myself in danger for being snitches? WTF.
