We are parents and family members who lost children in the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary school in December 2012. We're coming together to urge the Connecticut legislature to pass a law that would keep sensitive information, including photos and audio, about this tragic day private and out of the hands of people who'd like to misuse it for political gain.
Michael Moore and the hoaxers want to publish this gruesome information. For the sake of the surviving children and families, it's important to keep this information private. Other gruesome scenes have been kept private -- like the scene around Congresswoman Giffords shooting, Vince Foster's suicide, and Dale Earnhardt's automobile accident. This crime has received such international attention, it should be afforded the same treatment.

Please pass HB 6424, to protect the privacy of the gruesome crime scene information at Sandy Hook Elementary. These photos and other information would only be used for political purposes and no surviving sibling or family member should have to suffer that, on top of the grief they already bear. For the sake of decency, please pass this law. Other states have done similarly, and lets not let CT become the place where indecency wins.
