Officials at the Danbury (Conn.) State’s Attorney’s office are set to release a summary of their official investigation report about the Dec. 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, according to a local source. Will the report be accurate, objective and thorough? I hope so, but expect it will not.
Expected to contain thousands of pages, according to another source, the report will likely be constructed so as to serve as a clarion call for more-strict gun control measures.
At the same time, it will probably ignore the fact that Adam Lanza, the person responsible for the deaths of 26 people plus himself, had serious mental health issues and was not a legal owner or firearms.
Again, I certainly hope things turn out differently, but won’t be surprised if my predictions prove accurate. After all, Connecticut state officials are, no doubt, under pressure from Attorney General Eric Holder and his staff to produce a report that aligns with the Obama Administration‘s anti-gun agenda. And flawed reports are nothing new to this Administration.
They’ve withheld information and/or whitewashed details related to the attack on the U.S. Consulate at Benghazi, the gun-running scandal known as “Fast and Furious” and the Oklahoma City Bombing, to name a few. [FYI: May 5, 2014, has been set as the date for another Oklahoma City Bombing trial that will take place in Salt Lake City and, if justice prevails, forces the FBI to release copies of videotapes, the contents of which could further erode Americans' trust in their government.]
Stay tuned to see how this develops.
UPDATE 11/25/2013 at 10:50 a.m. Central: Published today, a Washington Times headline seems to confirm my suspicions: Sandy Hook investigators under fire for keeping some findings secret.
