The use of "court documents" in this manner is meant to deceive. People can say any darn thing they want to in court and it becomes a "court document."
It doesn't have to be true, it doesn't have to be accurate, it can be a pack of lies, but it is still part of a "court document." Don’t fooled by the semantics of implying that a "court document" is true. Any Perry Mason fan (yes, I'm dating myself) knows that people lie like a rug in court. When these lies are quoted out of context, it is unethical.
My vote for David Livingston means that our sheriff will have integrity and honor an order of magnitude better than this.
