Delete’ button weakens freedom of information law

Taken from Arkansas Times (USA)

"Arkansas has a Freedom of Information law that gives citizens the right to inspect public records. The law’s effectiveness is severely limited by the lack of a law requiring government agencies to retain records so they can be inspected."

That's not a bad thing; the less information the state has the better.

If they're keeping it and using it then we have a right to access it and change it if it is wrong.

If they're not using it, and there's no value in archiving it then destroying it is the right thing to do.
