AP slams police on Sandy Hook secrecy, and withholding 911 tapesSubmitted by Sue4theBillofrights on Thu, 03/14/2013 - 20:50
In an unusual broadside against Connecticut police and CT state prosecutors, the world's leading news service, the Associated Press (AP,) has criticized the denial of its Freedom of Information Act requests regarding the Sandy Hook shooting.
The AP said last week:
"Newtown police denied requests by The Associated Press for 911 calls and any police reports involving Lanza or his family. State police also declined to release records, citing the pending investigation."
AP faults the police specifically for not releasing the 911 call audio and written police reports. No calls from the school to the police dispatcher have ever been heard, although many versions of police scanner activity are circulating on Youtube.
