..."HARTFORD, Conn. — The public release of any photograph, videotape or digital recording related to last year's deadly Newtown elementary school shooting would require the written consent of victims' family members, according to a working draft of a bill released Wednesday by the governor's office.
The bill, crafted privately by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's office, the state's top prosecutor and legislative leaders, also would cover any recording depicting the physical condition of any of the victims of the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
While I understand about not wanting the pictures of the kids that were killed, or their families, folks have the choice of NOT looking at those pictures. This is such a slippery slope the govt is undertaking. If this bill would pass, we all know it will not stop with that. There would be another story, and the govt or whomever thinks it might offend tender eyes, or has something in it that could be graphic whatever the case, its against our 1st amendment rights, and it states this...
..........."The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press....
The DOJ and the Obama Admin already got ahold of the AP documents, and violated the 1st amendment, and the 4th amendment!! And Obama is trying really really hard at revoking our 2nd amendment rights, or at least severely curtailing them and now this? Granted this bill is not being drafted by the federal govt, this was done on the state level. But the fact remains, what our forefathers fought and died for is in serious jeopardy.
I do have much sympathy for all of those families, I was sick to my stomach when that happened, and it made me cry and hug my dd, you cannot go against the constitution, its there for a reason, and it is what makes America different from the rest of the world. Like I said earlier, anyone has the right not to look at any of those pics, just like we have the freedom of speech.
This, although should really make for an interesting case for the Supreme Court. IMO, Sandy Hook should be as wide open as possible to put to rest conspiracy theories and hoax claims. It should also serve as training material for all interested in preventing future occurrences.Answer Question
