Adkisson News Watch

Not much today - but I did want to point out this article at Southern Voice arguing in favor the Police releasing the letter that Adkisson wrote before shooting up the Unitarian Church.
For gays, the case is very personal. They, and everyone in Tennessee and elsewhere, deserve to know what Adkisson scribbled on those four pages.

“The more clarity, the better,” Galloway told the Knoxville News Sentinel. “We need to know what we’re dealing with. Is it just liberals he was targeting? Is it just gays? Was it all these things mixed together? We need to know.”

And why shouldn’t they know? When a man angry with gays and liberals shoots up a church on Sunday morning, we all deserve to know why.

Knoxville Police Chief Sterling P. Owen IV said simply, “If you needed to know, you would have been notified.”
I don't know exactly where I come down on this, but you gotta love the Police blandly saying that we don't need to know what is in that letter. Huh?

In other news, the man who killed Arkansas Democratic Party Chairman Bill Gwatney and was later slain himself has not yet given up much of a motive for his crime. He had a sticky note with Gwatney's name on it and a collection of 14 guns; but police have not yet found a link between the two.
