Local paper digs through police trash -- after cops say it's OK for them to do

Today is going to be Trash Day on Politech. Following in quick 
succession is a number of replies to last Friday's posting:

Best quote from the following article:
> Hours later, the chief issued a press release complaining that WW had gone through "my personal garbage at my home." KATU promptly took to the airwaves declaring, "Kroeker wants Willamette Week to stay out of his garbage."
> 
> If the chief got overheated, the mayor went nuclear. When we confessed that we had swiped her recycling, she summoned us to her chambers.
> 
> "She wants you to bring the trash--and bring the name of your attorney," said her press secretary, Sarah Bott.
