There are a few mentioned right in the source article. There are also others.
But you already knew that. Nice try though...
I'm sorry but I'm not from Connecticut. I have no idea what authority the Freedom of Information Commission has. I don't even know if it's a state
commission or a "De Jure Commission" of some sort. Either way, the judge who does have authority in this case has released the tapes. Enjoy..
Well, leaving aside your comment about being "new to these threads" even though you authored one (which was what prompted my comment), I'll give
you the benefit of the doubt.
In addition to FOIA laws there are also state laws and rules governing the release of evidence in any criminal case in CT. As this was tried before a
state judge I'm assuming the states attorney was first attempting to abrogate or get around those laws and rules. No dice. This is a murder case so
the state courts would normally retain jurisdiction. Final act of desperation would be to try and get this handled under federal jurisdiction even
though there is no legal precedent for it at all in a case like this. And if that happens you *know* this stinks from top to bottom.
I am from CT and live in the Sandy Hook area. I really hope there isn't anything to hide, but the way this has been so abysmally mishandled from the
get-go just screams otherwise. What conspiracy and why I make no specific claim about.
But there has definitely been a conspiracy to withhold evidence - that much is abundantly clear. But why? Cui bono?
Regardless, the authorities have done neither themselves nor the people of the state of CT any good by their mishandling of this event. They have
made an already awful situation even worse. That alone is unforgivable.
If there is nothing to hide then why are they hiding it & fighting tooth & nail against releasing the evidence as required?
And if there is something to hide they need to be forced to stop hiding it. Looks like we're going that route at this point in time as they have so
far been unwilling to release anything absent a court order. And I mean *anything* other than their own words & statements. They even ignored a
direct request & statement from the Governor of the state of CT. Think about that for a minute...
Those facts alone should be setting off alarm bells with everyone.
On a final note, I've already typed a lot more than I wanted initially. I guess you got me after all...but no worries - it won't happen again.
