There is Only One Question: Where is the Surveillance Video? A Demand.Submitted by Sue4theBillofrights on Mon, 12/24/2012 - 02:27
In her inimitable investigative style Sherrie Questioning All posts the school's official surveillance camera policy, enacted in 2003, which states that "surveillance data shall be stored for a period of 5 days."
Although Sherrie concludes that she cannot determine for certain whether the school had cameras installed, one could legitimately ask why a school would have a detailed policy for non-existent cameras. The easiest way to settle the issue would be to simply contact a member of school staff and ask them if there were security cameras.
Security cameras brought us the chilling footage at Columbine which gave the public the information and closure it deserved as to what happened that day. CT and federal authorities must do the same, by releasing the footage, no matter how horrific, to journalists with the stomach to view it and report to us what happened. The footage should be viewable by any member of the public, with appropriate warnings.
This will not be easy. But we need to know what happened.
