Attorney general: Police must release victims' names

By Adam Sichlto

The UK Police Depart-
ment has no legal basis for
blacking out crime victims’
information on its incident
reports and must stop the
practice. the state attorney
general‘s office ruled Friday.

At the beginning of the
school year. UK Police adopt-
ed a policy that gave crime
victims the chance to check a
box on police reports, telling
police to withhold their per-
sonal information from the

public. The Kernel challenged
that this new policy violated
Kentucky open records laws.

The UK Police Depart-
ment based its argument on a
state statute that says public
records can be withheld when
they contain “information of
a personal nature where the
public disclosure thereof
would constitute a clearly un-
warranted invasion of per-
sonal privacy"

The department also used
another state law that enables
institutions to deny open
records requests if the re-

lease of the information
would hinder ongoing police
investigations or proceedings.

But the state attorney gen-
eral‘s office found that UK
failed to meet its burden of

“UKPD has not described
in any harm to it or its inves-
tigation that would result
from disclosure of the inci-
dent report." said the opin-
ion. signed by Assistant At-
torney General Amye
Bensenhaver. “Not even a
bare claim is made in this re-
gard. Nor has UKPD attempt-

dto justify with specificity
the refusal of inspection of
these records."

Barbara Jones. UK‘s gen-
eral legal counsel and the au-
thor of UK's opinion to the at-
torney general. did not return
phone calls to her office.
When reached at home yes-
terday night. Jones said she
hadn't seen the ruling and de
clined to comment.

UK Police Chief Fred Otto
also hadn‘t seen the ruling as
of last night.

“I‘ll make that the first or-
der of business in the morn-

ing‘ ‘()ttosaid. “But Barbara
Jones is probably the one to
go to first before coming to

.lon Fleischaker, the Ker-
nel's attorney and general
counsel to the Kentucky Press
Association. said he is
pleased with the ruling for
two reasons.

"No. i. it is exactly the
right decision. and it's in line
with a number of other deci~
sions throughout the years."
he said. “UK counsel‘s efforts
were to change the law. not
implement the law.

'And No.2 it in fact the
decision had been otherwise.
it would have been a major
unwarranted change in what
the law is." he said. "i trust
that UK will go back to appro-
priate policy"

The attorney general
ruled that the UK Police De
partmeiit must. by law. re

on its reports in this case be-
cause it failed to show a

Afghan election still undecided a week later

By Paul Watson
KABUI.. Afghanistan

Interim President Hamid
Karzai held a strong lead
in the ballot count Monday
as allegations of fraud
continued more than a
week after the Afghan elec-

With an estimated 21
percent of ballots counted.
Karzai had 61 percent of
the vote. according to the
U.N.-Afghan group that or-
ganized the Oct. 9 election.

His main rival. Yunis
Qanooni. had almost 19
percent. Abdul Rashid Dos-
tum. an ethnic Uzbek war-
lord. was riiniiing third in
a field of 16 presidential
candidates with a little
more than 8 percent.

After briefing a UN. of

list of alleged irregulari-
ties. Qanooni said there
were more problems with
the balloting than he had
first thought.

“Unfortunately. our
friends working in the. gov-
ernment are trying to
make these big problems
seem very small." Qanooni
said in an interview.

“But in reality
fraud is preplanned."

The election was large
ly peaceful despite threats
from Taliban militants and
their allies to kill voters
and attack polling stations.

But in the days since
the polls closed and a mas-
sive security operation
ended. violence has mount

First. ask. “What am I re-

But what‘s
the difference?

You can
pretty much
assume that
“analog" is
synonymous with "old." Ana-
log camcorders are the pre-
cursors to digital and offer
very little in the department
of options and editing.

Typically these cameras
were lower resolution. and
larger in size.

The resolution of a catn-
corder is measured by the
number of horizontal lines
that make up the picture, or
lines of resolution. The more
lines your picture has. the
better the quality.

picture looks better,

Analog has anywhere
front around 240 to 400 (400 be
ing the Hi-8 format; a typical
VHS cassette has about 240).

Digital camcorders pro-
duce images that run from
about 500 to 540 and can be in
excess of over 1000 if you
shoot with a high—definition

If you go digital. your pic
ture looks better. but don‘t
just assume that the latest
thing on the market will pro-
duce the best picture. The
newer DVD camcorders only
produce 500 lines of resolu-
tion. where most Mini-DY
models produce about 540.

Just because a camcorder
is digital doesn't mean there
is no tape most camcorders
still use tapes. The device is
“digital" because information
is encoded on the tape in a
way that allows the cam-
corder to inter

it doesn't hurt the quality
of your picture. so the more.
the better. Digital zoom. on
the other hand, isn't so nice:
It crops your image. which
cuts the number of lines of
resolution considerably

The more you digitally
zoom your camcorder. the
lower your resolution be-
comes. With a digital camera.
you usually digitally zoom by
a factor of two to four times
(not good). With a camcorder.
it can be up to 990 times (deli

nitely not good). Any picture
actually taken with such a
substantial cut in resolution
will be virtually useless. so
turn your digital zoom down.
Even better. turn it off.

A camcorder‘s picture
quality is also affected by its
CCD chip the light-sensi»
tive chip that turns visible
light waves into a digital im-
age. Most cameras have one
chip. but some of the better
models will have three (one
chip for each of the primary
colors of the light spectrum:
red. green and blue). They‘re
pricey: but if you can afford

quality is quite dramatic.

points based on still picture
quality. so this is an impor-
tant thing to know: the more
megap'uiels. the more you’re
going to pay.

But don‘t think buying a
camcorder will retire your
digital camera most mod-
els feature one megapixel at

Most either have none or
0.68 the few that have tnore
usually will rim over 81.001).
and men they won‘t top two
niegapixels. Meanwhile. most
digital cameras begin with
three megapixels.

The last thing: Buy acces
sories to make your catn-

cordcr work for you. (hit of

the box. most models will
have a one-hour battery. ca-
bles. software and a neck
strap. Plan to purchase tapes
as well you won‘t have
everything needed to start
filming just out of the box.

A fresh tape for each new
project is a good idea as well

the more you reuse a tape.
the more it wears. leading to
poor sound and picture quali


Can you imagine film-
ing a wedding and
running out of power
right before the bride
and groom kiss?

Picking up a case for your
camera is always a good idea.

You‘ll probably spend over
$500 just for the camera. so
spend that extra $20 to protect
your investment ~ manufac-
turer warranties do not cover
incidental damage.

Also budget for an extra
battery The battery that typi
cally comes with camcorders
lasts one hour with the LCD
screen closed and about 45
minutes open.

A single Mini-DV tape is
an hour. and most major
events that people videotape
will take two to three tapes.

Can you imagine filming a
wedding and running out of

When it
comes to trans-
ferring your
video to a com-
puter. the two
most common
hook-ups are
universal seri-
al bus port and
Firewire (also
called a DV
port. or IEEEIBSM).

Typically: people are more
familiar with ['88 it‘s the
small rectangular plug that
printers. mice and keyboards
use. Because of this familiari»
ty. it's a popular primary
means of transfer.

My advice: Don‘t.

USB can cause many
problems. and that‘s if you
can get a connection to work

it‘s slow. as [TSB has to
compress the footage to trans-

Expect a four- to six-hour
wait for an hour of Video and
a loss of quality to boot.

Additionally. some cani
corders or software are inca
pable of transferring through
if SB at all

I think the best means of
moving digital video to a com»
puter is via l-‘irewire The
transfer is in real time. and
there is no loss in quality.

If you don't hayc a
Firewire port on your coni-
puter. don‘t stress you can
install a Firewirc card for
about 840.

So there you have it: (‘am-
corders ltil. (‘lass dismissed.
