Sandy Hook Fallout: Proposal to Restrict Death Certificates

Sandy Hook Fallout: Proposal to Restrict Death Certificates --Requests for kids' records dismay lawmakers --GOP Rep refers to reporters who seek info as 'jackals' 21 Feb 2013 [Note: This is a summary of an article, written by Christopher Keating and William Weir, that appeared in Thursday's Hartford Courant (hard copy), but for some reason did not 'make it' to the Courant's website.] A Newtown official's distress over reporters' requests for death certificates after the Dec. 14 schoolhouse shootings has led to a bill that would restrict public access to the records for any children younger than age 18. State Rep. Mitch Bolinsky, a freshman Republican lawmaker from Newtown, testified to a committee Wednesday that legislators "need to do something." "I was shocked, dismayed and deeply disturbed when, on Dec. 17, I got a call from the town clerk about the prospect of having a reporter standing beside her during one of the greatest tragedies in the history of the United States in Newtown looking for death certificates of children," Bolinsky said. Bolinsky said he felt "the outrage, the pain of observing the jackals descend upon my town clerk's office at a time of great, great community loss." Bolinksy introduced the one-paragraph bill, which states that the copy of the public record could be restricted "when the disclosure of the death certificate is likely to cause undue hardship for the family of the child."

Comments

In my earlier comment #3599, I noted that CBS Sunday Morning had a tribute to the Sandy Hook school psychologist which made no mention of 20 children or Adam Lanza, and closed with "we may never know what took place inside the school that day". At the time, I took this statement as a conjecture - but now I see that it is really official policy.

...now if I was the suspicous type.....any future similar event, with no paperwork/ evidence to back it up.....they can just make up the casualty figures....

Looks like the Courant put it up:

Fascinating article from the Hartford Courant at

..."Police are discussing bringing back some of the cars that were in the school lot as the first Newtown officers and state police troopers arrived following 911 calls that was a shooter was on the loose. The cars will be placed exactly where they parked that morning as will the police cruisers of the first responders. The plan is to receate the scene in the coming week.

Police have found numerous bullets outside the school that hit at least three cars, including the one owned by Lauren Rousseau, who was killed by Lanza in her classroom along with 14 of her students and a special-education aide. The three cars that were hit, belonging to Sandy Hook staffers, were near where at least one of the first group of officers parked before running into the school, sources said."...

And what if some pesky jackal reporters were able to identify those particular first responders - AND their chain of command? Oh, never mind - how about the best and worst-dressed at the Oscars?
