PostSubject: Bill would let Sandy Hook families withhold crime-scene photos, documents   Tue Jun 04, 2013 12:41 am

I've tried to stay away from the worst of the Sandy Hook conspiracy theories, despite feeling as though something about the whole situation over there stank to high heaven. But, as more and more bizarre government actions emerge (from planning on tearing down the school to sealing information based upon the idea of additional perpetrators we've yet to hear anything about) one has to wonder what really went on over there. We'll probably never know the whole truth...

CNN) — Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is considering legislation that would let families of victims in the Sandy Hook school shooting block release of some crime-scene documents.

The governor’s office sent CNN a working draft of the bill. If enacted, it would require written consent of those who survived the shooting or family members of those who died for officials to release photos, video, audio recordings or 911 calls “depicting the physical condition of any victim.”

The bill also would allow officials to redact the identity of any minor. It would exempt the release of death certificates as public records, and would limit the release of 911 call recordings. Only transcript portions not containing descriptions of the victims would be made available.

“The purpose of the bill is to give (Sandy Hook) families the right to say they don’t want crime scene photos published. It gives the victims’ families the right to decide,” said Andrew Doba, spokesman for Malloy.

A lone gunman opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown last December 14, killing 20 children and six educators before taking his own life.

Doba said the governor’s office has heard from some who would like the measure to apply to all cases, but the bill under consideration by Malloy would only apply to the victims of the schoolhouse massacre.

“We wanted to craft a very limited bill that prevents the (Sandy Hook) families from going through this again. This seems like a sensible thing to do,” said Doba of the draft — an amendment to state House legislation proposed earlier in the session to increase fees for searches of accident and investigative reports.
