First we have minutes. These come in two flavors: Board of Directors and also Finance Committee. One thing that these BIDs are consistent about is that none of them know how to name files so that they sort properly in directories. Ah, sigh. I’m going to rename them at some point, but I wanted to get them up here quickly. Finally, in honor of all the new material here I reorganized the subdirectory structure in the DCBID directory and its child, the Universal Protection Service subdirectory.
I just got a ton of stuff from the ever-helpful (and, relatively speaking, surprisingly sane) Suzanne Holley of the DCBID. The most amazing item, and one which no one here has yet had time to read carefully enough to appreciate, is the 64 page PDF of the Universal Protection Service Use of Force Manual. This is an amazing piece of evidence. What it is evidence of, as always, remains to be seen. If you notice anything important in it, please drop me a line. No doubt my colleagues and I will be mining this for a long time. It is the source of the cryptic yet creepy diagram which adorns this post. There are also a bunch of slightly more pedestrian-on-their-face documents, described after the break.
