Consider this old line

'If you have done nothing wrong, you should have nothing to hide.'

"...Police officers who shot dead a teenager are going to unprecedented lengths, including requesting to use a Darth Vader-style voice distorter in court, to keep their identity a secret.

The officers – known only as Officers A81 and A84 – went to the High Court at Auckland yesterday because they fear being "paraded" before the media and the family of the dead youth, Halatau Naitoko..."

How many times have I heard senior cops throw out that line!

'If you have done nothing wrong, you should have nothing to hide.'

Sauce for the goose...

UPDATE:

I need to add that I actually SUPPORT the right of police officers not to be dragged through the media as was Keith Abbott.

I want their senior ranks to extend the SAME right to civillians who are in a similar situation- like Greg Carvell.
