(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – Following the mayor of Nashville pushing for a probe into the leak of pages from a manifesto that allegedly belonged to the Covenant School shooter, which had resulted in six people losing their lives in March, seven police officers were placed on “administrative assignment.”
The Police Department in Nashville, Tennessee (MNPD) told The Hill that this decision was “absolutely non-punitive.” The department did not provide the names of the officers in question, noting that it would be unfair to them.
The MNPD argued that the assignment was meant to help protect the investigation’s integrity and that the officers in question continued to have full police power.
On Monday, Steven Crowder, a media host, shared photos of what he asserted were segments of the shooter’s manifesto.
John Drake, the Nashville Police Chief, had argued in a statement on Monday that he was “greatly disturbed” by the release of three pages from the shooter’s manifesto without any authorization. He added that the police department would seriously be looking into the person responsible for this release.
He added that the release of the manifesto showed disregard towards the families of the victims of the school shooting and the court system, which is currently in control of the journals of the shooter because of litigation that had been filed earlier this year.
On Monday, Nashville Mayor Freddie O’Connell stated that the probe could potentially include local, state, and federal law enforcement.
