To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:
Any and all police reports, records, or memorandum including the terms "Satanist" and/or "The Satanic Temple" and/or "Lucien Greaves" and/or "Malcolm Jarry". I am also requesting a search of all digital communications for the same aforementioned terms. I am requesting these documents as a member of the News Media contributing to DigBoston and The American Prospect.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.
Dear Mr. Daniel Kaufman,
Your attached records requests did not produce any results. A Free Text search of the terms "Satanist" and/or "The Satanic Temple" and/or "Lucien Greaves" and/or "Malcolm Jarry" in the Salem Police Departments Records Management System (RMS) from 1991 to present produced "Nothing Found". There was also "Nothing Found for Selection Criteria" in our RMS master name file for Lucien Greaves nor Malcolm Jarry. If you have any questions, please call or email me.
