“Not At Liberty To Release”: Nashville PD Blows Smoke Over Leaked Manifesto

Following yesterday’s partial leak of the Nashville transgender school shooter’s manifesto by Steven Crowder, which contained a narrative-shattering screed targeting white “cracker” children, both the Chief of Police and the Mayor flipped out.

After confirming the authenticity of the writings, Metro Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell said in a statement on Nov. 6 that he had directed the city’s legal director to initiate an investigation into the leak.

“I have directed Wally Dietz, Metro’s law director, to initiate an investigation into how these images could have been released,” said O’Connell, who cited the ‘Covenant families’ as part of those who were, or could be, harmed by the release.

“That investigation may involve local, state, and federal authorities. I am deeply concerned with the safety, security, and well-being of the Covenant families and all Nashvillians who are grieving.”

Think of the families!

Echoing O’Connell’s rhetoric was Nashville Police Chief John Drake, who also cited the families as a reason not to release the manifesto, calling the release a “Total disregard for Covenant families,” and claiming “We are not at liberty to release the journals until the courts rule.”

Drake also claimed that “Covenant families have control of the journals.”

Turns out all of that is bullshit.

Debunking all of this is journalist Nick Sortor, who took to X on Tuesday to debunk Drake’s drivel.

1. “Total disregard for Covenant families”

The Covenant School families said IN A COURT FILING that the documents could be released AFTER THE SCHOOL YEAR ENDED (on or after June 8, 2023)

 2. “We are not at liberty to release the journals until the courts rule”

THIS IS FALSE. The COUNTER PARTIES in the litigation are literally SUING FOR THIS INFORMATION TO BE RELEASED

Nashville PD are the ONLY ones preventing the release, as that is the ONLY thing being demanded by the plaintiffs. The suit would be DROPPED if the documents were released

3. “Covenant families have control of the journals”

THIS IS FALSE. Metro Nashville Police have seized AT LEAST 20 JOURNALS from the shooter.

Firstly, @MNPDNashville and FBI have FULL AUTHORITY any writings, statements, or videos by the assailant. These are just more excuses to cover this up.

Secondly, the families do NOT have control over the 20 journals

In addition to official bullshit, the story was immediately censored by Facebook, YouTube, Reddit and other woke platforms.

Amazing…
