Officials in Tennessee Say Release of Trans Nashville Shooter’s Manifesto is Being Stalled by the FBI

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

A transgender’s “blueprint on total destruction’ as one Tenessee public official described the manic writings of Audrey Hale, was discovered right away after her insane murder spree, but has yet to be released to the public.

Reports show that the murderer’s confessions in a manifesto are being withheld from the public purposefully.

Hale took revenge on a private school in a church and killed six people, and reportedly had ‘memoirs’ and several weapons that were found by authorities after the shooting that killed six people at the end of March.

NBC reported at the time about Hale’s motive:

“A sense of “resentment” might have played a role in a 28-year-old’s deadly attack on the private Christian school they once attended, Nashville police said Monday.

The shooter, Nashville resident Audrey Hale, had no previous criminal record before opening fire at The Covenant School, killing three children and three adults, authorities said.

“There’s some belief that there was some resentment for having to go to that school,” Metropolitan Nashville Police Chief John Drake told Lester Holt of NBC News.

Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tennessee, told the New York Post this week, the FBI was behind the delay while calling for the documents to be released to grieving loved ones and Congress.

The public interest in the manifesto is high as well, as posters on social media have noted:

The manifesto “could maybe tell us a little bit about what’s going on inside of her head,” Burchett told the newspaper. “I think that would answer a lot of questions.”

Journalist Mike LaChance asked questions about the FBI withholding the documents from the public and reported on a Fox News story:

“It has been weeks since trans shooter Audrey Hale attacked a school in Nashville, killing six people, including three children, and the public still hasn’t seen the manifesto she left behind.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald has been trying to access the document but has been blocked at every turn.

Now officials in Tennessee are claiming that the release of the document is being stalled by the FBI. Why?” LaChance asked.

FOX News reported with more details:

“Tennessee officials say FBI stalling the release of Nashville shooter Audrey Hale manifesto, Authorities have delayed the release of a manifesto penned by Hale.

During a search of the house Hale shared with her parents, authorities seized 20 journals, five laptops, a suicide note and various other notes written by Hale as well as two memoirs, five Covenant School yearbooks and seven cellphones, according to a search warrant.

Nashville Council member Courtney Johnston told The Post the FBI has already ruled the manifesto would not be released in its entirety.

“What I was told is, her manifesto was a blueprint on total destruction, and it was so, so detailed at the level of what she had planned,” she said, when reached by phone.”

Why is this being hidden from the public?

Does anyone believe the manifesto would be hidden from the public if the shooter was a conservative? Of course not, LaChance concludes.

Or perhaps if the manifesto serves an ‘anti-gun’ purpose, it would be released to the public,  as in the case stated above of the Bank Robbery murderer who also had a manifesto.

The post-millennial reported about that situation:

It has been revealed that Louisville mass shooter Connor Sturgeon wrote a 13-page manifesto wherein he outlined his motives for the attack.

The now-deceased 25-year-old, who suffered from myriad mental health issues, stated that his decision to gun down his former colleagues at the bank was based on a number of factors, not least as a way to show how easy it was for someone like him to obtain a firearm.

The Daily Mail exclusively obtained details about the manifesto, which is currently in the hands of police, and reported that in the document, Sturgeon stated that he wanted to carry out the massacre to show how simple it was to purchase a gun in Kentucky and highlight the mental health crisis in America. He also made it clear that he was on a suicide mission.

While Sturgeon did not say much about the firearm before the shooting, he made it clear on numerous occasions that he was suicidal and ready to end his life, and those of others, at the bank, saying as much to a friend just prior to the attack.

Sturgeon got his hands on an AR-15 just six days prior to the attack. According to Kentucky law, having a mental health disorder, violent misdemeanor convictions, domestic abuse-related restraining orders, or substance abuse disorders does not disqualify a resident of the state from purchasing and owning a firearm.

As the Daily Mail reports, state law also requires that firearms seized by police be auctioned off to the highest bidder, however, Sturgeon’s family pleaded with the Louisville Metro Police Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms to destroy the weapon. The ATF took possession of the gun on Monday, however, it has not yet been disposed of.
