The attorney for the Covenant Presbyterian School, which is looking to block the release of the records, made an emotional appeal, insisting that making the documents public could drive Covenant Presbyterian students to re-live the horrifying events of March 27, and harm themselves.
“For the parents, this case is literally a matter of life and death,” said Eric Osborne, who represents more than 100 families of approximately 200 Covenant schoolchildren, including the family members of the three children and three staff members fatally shot by 28-year-old Audrey Elizabeth Hale.
That is a load of BS. Mass suicide does not happen without a seriously deep indoctrination like the ones we see in cults.
the answer may be here:
Attorneys for the church and the school have argued that Hale’s manifesto and related writings include schematics of the school and other revealing information. Releasing the documents could put students, faculty and staff at risk, they say. But the judge could choose to limit or restrict the release of such information.
I have the feeling this will be another case of “We knew she was dangerous, but we did nothing because……” and they are afraid they will be sued out of existence. I believe that it is a bigger crime to keep the school’s weak points plus preparations and strategies the asshole shooter used from the public’s knowledge. Then again, if the next shooting is not prevented, more political and monetary hay will be harvested. For them, “Do it for the Children” actually means “stuff my pockets with bloody money!”
