According to the newest reports, the Covenant School has filed a motion to suppress the trans shooter’s manifesto.
The mass shooting left 6 dead—including 3 children.
While I understand the need to not glorify, or otherwise give attention to mass School shooters, I believe, that in this case, the public need to know outweighs the long-term concerns.

Reactions to the motion were met with widespread criticism and calls for transparency. …
The overwhelming sentiment was that the Covenant School was hiding something, why else would they attempt to restrict the manifesto?
Release the manifesto! Victims deserve to know why trans murderer Audrey Hale killed 6 Christians, including 3 children at Covenant school. Regardless of any unpleasant facts, terrifying motives, or plans to "end civilization," we must reject any effort to censor the Truth.

It's been 46 days since transgender mass killer Audrey Hale murdered six innocent people at a Christian school, and the government is still hiding her manifesto.
Why is a mass murderer being protected? Release the manifesto! https://t.co/U6ceS5mSga

The Post Millennial explains that pushback against the move is already underway:
The National Police Association (NPA) and Tennessee Firearms Association (TFA) have separately filed suits against the city with the objective of having the manifesto released.

The New York Post reports:
A letter to Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake sent Monday was signed by 66 caucus members and requests “the release of the perpetrator’s writings as well as relevant medical records and toxicology reports.”
Rep. Jeremy Faison, House Republican Caucus Chair, told The Post Wednesday his group doesn’t “understand the apprehension,” and pointed out legislators are being asked to consider new gun control legislation since the shooting without knowing the totality of Hale’s circumstances.
