November 5, 1987 | United Press International
The congressional Iran-Contra committees today approved their final report, amid Republican complaints that the Democrat-dominated panels investigating the scandal were too politically motivated and too tough on President Reagan.

The final volume of the report of South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission is 976 pages long and heavy to hold. Heavy, too, are its contents: the names of thousands of South Africans, followed by brief, chilling descriptions of how they were killed, tortured or left maimed or scarred in the three turbulent decades leading up to the country's first democratic election, in 1994.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has decided to delay action on the interim recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Commission on Child Protection until a final report is issued in April.

The agency issued a lengthy final report that reiterated its longstanding call for online advertisers and makers of Web browsers to enact a "Do Not Track" system that allows consumers to prevent the collection of data about their Internet surfing. The report also called for new rules for data brokers, including legislation to give consumers access to information about them collected by those companies.

Re "Tainted reasoning," editorial, Jan. 27 As far as I know, the exclusionary rule has never saved an innocent person from prison. It has, however, paved the way for hundreds, maybe thousands, of murderers, thieves and kidnappers to continue to prey on society. The exclusionary rule intends to punish an officer for his errors in handling evidence by not allowing his work to result in a conviction, thereby causing him to do better work on future cases. If that was ever effective, it is not today.
