I added the "unbalanced" template because the article is unbalanced. Most of the content of the article is about "controversies." None of the article talks about, for example, police heroism, etc. In its current state, the article is being used as a vehicle to foment negativism (at the expense of the positive) about the department.

I have removed the section. I recommend that one does not re-add it without adding more to the other sections of the article. This article is about the PD, not the PD's controversies. Griffinofwales (talk) Simple English Wikipedia - Come and join! 16:52, 19 January 2011 (UTC)

the controversies are part of the PD —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:09, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

There are several of the huge sections that are about acquitals and no charges being brought. Definitely inappropriate for the article as worded and have been removed. Perhaps one sentance summary covering the events may be appropriate, but the sections as they stood are not. Active Banana (bananaphone 22:30, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
And I have no objections whatsoever to the sections that remain being much more pared down. I just didnt have the desire to read the sources and attempt it myself. Active Banana (bananaphone 22:38, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
so just to be clear your problem with my edits is they provided too much information?  —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:29, 7 February 2011 (UTC) 

I find it unsettling that just because facts are unflattering are used as justification for being "unbalanced". Truth is not always pretty, but if we sacrifice it in favor of "whitewashing" articles, we do no one any favors, and any objectivity is lost. Swilliamrex 2340 19APR2011

You have to look at the history to see the full scope of the whitwashing going on here
