I posted a link to a video which was removed, so Google or search YouTube for Wolfgang Halbig, a school safety expert who wAs involved in the aftermath of Columbine and after looking at Sandy Hook, became concerned. He is a former Miami State Trooper, school principal, and expert on school safety who says the investigators at SH broke multiple well known procedures. He is NOT a CT! He says he was threatened by Conn. officials and that none of his calls or FOI requests have been returned. Why not? I think the questions asked by this former cop and educator deserve to be answered. He's right; the pieces do not fit. Period.
I suppose any case could, but I'm not sure what that has to do with this one. The secrecy aspect to this one, however, did not appear with the report. It's been a question all the way. This isn't going to change that, nor will speculating as to why the state's attorney is acting as he is. And to be clear, it's not a bunch of AJ wannabe cters alone who are expressing concern.
Omitted will be the entire evidence file — a stack of documents that’s believed to span thousands of pages — and legal minds aren’t happy about the hold-back of information.
“What I found troubling about the approach of the state’s attorney is that from my perspective, he seems to have forgotten his job is to represent the state of Connecticut,” said Dan Klau, a Hartford attorney with expertise in First Amendment issues, in the AP story. Mr. Klau said releasing the full file is standard procedure in most investigations in the state,
I didn't follow this one at the start, so I missed that phase. I first looked into it when word was going around about hoax vid and it being debunked. I went looking for the vid, but didn't find it, just the article that was said to debunk it.
I did find another vid, though, which was two hours long, maybe more. Having watched that sans any of the original reports or any of that phase, I found it to raise lots of questions and the debunker article wasn't touching on them very well, so perhaps the original hoax vid didn't either, I don't know.
Regardless, it wasn't a case of just throwing shit at the wall. I haven't followed it in a long time, but I don't recall seeing my concerns debunked, though perhaps they have been and I didn't get the memo.
That said, the workers having to sign nondisclosure statements didn't help with the secrecy angle and this one had a lot of weirdness on a lot of levels, so it will no doubt receive a lot of "nitpicking" given that the evidence is being withheld.
I haven't looked at any of the report, but again, my guess is it will just be an affirmation of the standard story.
