The left’s violent rhetoric has encouraged hate crimes against conservatives.
But they don’t want Americans to realize just how bad things have actually gotten.
So Democrats are working overtime to make sure you don’t see this one piece of evidence.
On March 27th, a transgender walked into a Nashville Christian school and killed three school staffers and three 9-year-old students.
Police noted that the shooter had left a manifesto behind explaining her reasons for targeting Covenant School and that it would be released to the public.
However, the manifesto has yet to be published and Nashville Police have backtracked on their promise to release it in a terse statement last Wednesday.
“Due to pending litigation filed this week, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department has been advised by counsel to hold in abeyance the release of records related to the shooting at the Covenant School pending orders or direction of the court,” read the statement.
Police say they can’t make the manifesto public due to a lawsuit filed by the Tennessee Firearms Association (TFA) which alleges police wrongfully denied its public records request for the manifesto.
“The Covenant shooting was a tragedy beyond comprehension, & Tennesseans need clarity. We’ve been in touch with the Nashville Police Department, & today, Chief Drake assured me that documents & information regarding the shooter will be released to the public very soon,” Lee, a Republican, said on April 27.
TFA’s lawsuit demanded answers as to why there’s an open criminal case when the perpetrator is dead.
“Respondent’s denial failed to identify any underlying criminal proceeding, or even a potential defendant, such that the requested records would be a ‘case’ under Rule 16 of the Tennessee Rules of Criminal Procedure,” the lawsuit said.
John I. Harris III, head of TFA, said he’s skeptical to believe the official reasons police are giving for not releasing the manifesto.
“You hate to jump to that conclusion that this is a conspiracy, but right now the only answer they’ve given is there’s an ongoing criminal investigation,” Harris said according to the Daily Wire Wednesday.
“I guess theoretically it could be an investigation into someone who’s now deceased, but for what purpose? They are now beyond prosecutorial effect.”
Tennessee resident Clata Brewer also sued over alleged public records violations.
“Defendant has not identified anyone who might be subjected to any prosecution because of the Covenant School incident or any class of persons who might be subject to criminal prosecution because of the incident,” the lawsuit states. “Since the Covenant School incident, law enforcement officials have made numerous comments to both local and national media concerning some or all of the records Plaintiff has requested, and these comments are inconsistent with there being any criminal prosecution related to the incident.”
