FCSO: This is What I Find Troubling

This is what I find troubling.

"The Faulkner County Sheriff's Office has announced that prescription narcotics that went missing were not scheduled for destruction, as previously announced, but rather intended for a detainee."

This seems to be a common practice now when a situation involving serious matters becomes public.

For example: loss of life (Benghazi) or drug abuse (FCSO).

When any government agency has to correct it's original statement, to a totally different statement, SOMEONE IN A HIGH POSITION OF AUTHORITY  should lose their job for putting false information out in the first place.

These practices reek of disinformation and a lack of transparency.

How can they justify the original statement, other than trying to minimize the embarrassment brought to the government agency involved?

To me, it makes the government leaders appear to be thinking:  
"That story does not look like it is going to stand up to scrutiny. Let's hurry up and make up another one."

For the record, I don't know any of these people. I just no longer assume that I should trust the people who run the government.
