Sandy Hook 911 Calls Released
After lengthy court action and media calls, some of the emergency calls from nearly a year ago are released and reporters listening to them now. (NYT with first excerpts.) May not offer much new but then again: the recent summary of (still hidden) full report on the tragedy hailed police for getting to the school quickly and acting widely once they got inside. Left vague was the question of why they sat outside for several minutes before entering. Their timeline had the killings, and Lanza suicide, all occuring before or just as they arrived, letting them off the hook. The 911 calls may offer a somewhat different picture, or not.
