Chief CT Attorney: 'Truthers changed Freedom of Information landscape, so release of Sandy Hook details must be blocked'

Chief CT Attorney: 'Truthers changed Freedom of Information landscape, so release of Sandy Hook details must be blocked' --CT bill would suppress Sandy Hook crime scene photos 22 May 2013 A bill was brokered Wednesday by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy [regarding the crime scene] photos from the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre. But civil libertarians oppose the legislation and Connecticut's newspaper and radio executives warned Wednesday that suppression of information could set a bad precedent and create unintended consequences. The bill, a draft of which was released by the governor's office late Wednesday afternoon, is crafted specifically to cover the crime-scene photos and 911 audio recordings of the December 14 shootings at the Newtown school. But it would also allow Town Clerk Debbie Aurelia to continue to withhold the death certificates for the 20 first graders and six adults murdered there... Chief State's Attorney Kevin T. Kane said Wednesday that while mainstream news media traditionally avoid the use of graphic photos, bloggers and so-called truthers -- who claim the Newtown murders are a hoax by officials with an anti-gun agenda -- have changed the Freedom of Information landscape. Kane was seeking broader powers to prevent photos and recordings of graphic 911 calls from public release, but the draft narrows the scope to those murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary.
