State of Connecticut Crafts “Special Act” to Hide Sandy Hook Evidence
May 23, 2013
If the Connecticut General Assembly is successful, we will never know details of what happened at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown on December 14, 2012.
The Hartford Courant reports that the state’s top prosecutor and the governor’s office are working in secret with General Assembly leaders on legislation designed to withhold records related to the police investigation of the incident. If enacted, the legislation will hide from public scrutiny photos of victims, 911 call records and other evidence.
“There is complete agreement regarding photos etc., and audio tapes, although the act may allow the disclosure of audio transcripts,” a top assistant to Chief State’s Attorney Kevin Kane, Timothy J. Sugrue, told the Courant.
