Apparently the San Rafael police department hasn’t had enough free time over the last six years to view the more than 500 porn videos and 250 adult magazines they confiscated from Dennis Saunders when they arrested him in November of 2001. Their personal pleasure is the only reason I can think of that they are refusing to return his $25,000 collection to him now that he has been released from prison.

Saunders was convicted of videotaping a 45-year-old woman and 17-year-old girl in their apartments 6 years ago and was released August 25th. But his porn collection remains in the hands of the police and they’re refusing to give it back. “Evidence” collected during a criminal investigation that is both legal to possess and not used in the trial is routinely released once criminal proceedings are completed. But “city officials have told Rankin [Saunders’ attorney] that they do not feel comfortable releasing the pornography without a court order,” according to a San Francisco Chronicle report.

Don’t feel comfortable? Excuse me? Their comfort level should not be the issue here. What happened to “the law is the law”? Because not only does the law say that the property belongs to Saunders, but a judge has given San Rafael officials until Oct. 30 to prove that they have authority to keep Saunders’ pornographic tapes and magazines. Do you really want your tax money being spent fighting in court to keep this collection in police custody? Not to mention the expense of storing it, etc.
