First, to the extent that you're right, that's pretty damning of standard police procedure. Second, as I keep having to point out because people want to ignore it, the fact that this stuff wasn't turned over to the defense years ago is at least as much of a problem as the contents themselves.
"As long as it is admitted that the law may be diverted from its true purpose -- that it may violate property instead of protecting it -- then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself against plunder or to use it for plunder. Political questions will always be prejudicial, dominant, and all-absorbing. There will be fighting at the door of the Legislative Palace, and the struggle within will be no less furious." - Bastiat, The Law
