Nashville Police Get Sued To Release Covenant Killer’s Manifesto

Before Audrey Elizabeth Hale stormed the private Covenant Presbyterian School in Nashville and killed three children and three adults, she wrote a manifesto.

But authorities still are concealing it, depriving the community of what might prove to be important information about the assault.

Now the Tennessee Firearms Association is asking a court to order the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department to release it.

The lawsuit by the TFA, which was joined by former Hamilton County Sheriff James Hammond, asks a judge in Davidson County to grant the organization access to the writings.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

“[The Police Department] knew that the requested records were public and refused to disclose them,” explains the filing. It accuses local authorities of violating the Tennessee Public Records Act.

“We believe under the Tennessee Open Records Act that it’s not a question of will the manifesto be disclosed, but why have government officials stopped the release and how long will it take a court to address why that nondisclosure should be vacated and the government ordered to disclose the records,” explained TFA chief John Harris.

A report from the Star News Network explains the TFA asked for the public record on April 13 and the document was found. According to the complaint, TFA sent a public records request asking police to release the “manifesto” reportedly found in Hale’s parents’ home.

They refused.

Nashville police also refused a number of other public information requests.

While police claimed the law “prohibits” release of the information, the report pointed out that wasn’t exactly right.

“We believe the public’s right to know is so important that we are willing to challenge the most powerful law enforcement agency in America,” Michael Patrick Leahy, editor-in-chief of The Star News Network.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Although millions of American parents send their precious children off to public school every day, imagining their kids’ days will be filled with reading, writing, arithmetic, science, history, sports and music, they’re not only in for a shock – but for total BETRAYAL. Today’s “public” (government) schools have become far-left ideological, political and religious indoctrination centers aimed at reprogramming and transforming America’s children.

Kids are being taught to HATE their own country and to see themselves and their parents as racists – or victims of racists. They are sexualized and corrupted, and many are groomed into the dark LGBT world, with almost 6,000 schools prohibiting parents from even hearing about their child’s transgender “transition.” In between all the far-left indoctrination and sexual corruption, teachers take time to scare children to death about the near-term end of life on earth due to “catastrophic climate change.” Another lie. But it’s all classic Marxism/communism, with even the “3 R’s” – reading, writing and arithmetic – now being corrupted with “woke,” “1984”-style madness.

Perhaps never has the true threat of today’s U.S. public school system been exposed as in the sensational April issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREATEST BETRAYAL: How Marxism and madness have taken over America’s public school system.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
