In May, Hasbrouck Heights library director Michele Reutty refused to turn over circulation records to local police seeking a man who had allegedly made sexually threatening comments to a 12-year-old girl outside the library. Citing state law, Reutty told authorities they would need a subpoena before she could comply with their request.
Investigators secured subpoenas and eventually received the information they requested, but Reutty is now under fire from borough officials who decried her "blatant disregard" for law enforcement and accused her of putting the interests of the library above the interest of police.
Erm. I'm not really sure how complying with state law shows a "blatant disregard" for law enforcement. Unless, of course, the law enforcement crew feels that they shouldn't have to abide by the laws that they're supposedly enforcing.
