US: Nashville police suspends 7 detectives after school shooter’s writings leaked – Times of India – Lifotravel

NEW DELHI: The Nashville police department suspended seven detectives days after the writings of a killer of six people at The Covenant School were posted online.
Reportedly, the detectives were placed on “administrative assignment” to investigate exactly how conservative commentator Steven Crowder obtained the explosive documents, The New York Post reported.
Department spokesperson Don Aaron told the station that these detectives are on administrative assignment to
protect the integrity of the active, progressing investigation.
Aaron stressed the move was “absolutely not punitive” and said the suspended detectives would not be named at this time.
Crowder, who obtained the documents, said that an unidentified party contacted a member of his website’s investigative unit claiming to have a portion of Hale’s writings.
A member of his team flew to Nashville to meet the source, who showed him images of the documents embedded in a text exchange with a person Crowder described as a “Nashville detective.”
Crowder said his team was then able to research and authenticate them, paving the way for their release.
While media and some law enforcement groups have argued the writings should be in the public domain, the Covenant School and several victims’ family members have opposed their release, according to the New York Post.
“I am deeply concerned with the safety, security, and well-being of the Covenant families and all Nashvillians who are grieving,” Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell said in a statement after Crowder unveiled Hale’s materials.
A group of parents whose children were present during the massacre also denounced the leak through a spokesman.
“You have now allowed [the shooter], who terrorized our family with bullets, to be able to now terrorize us with words from the grave,” said Brent Leatherwood, a Covenant parent.
