Absence of Justice

Chancery court judge I’Ashea Myles has ruled that the writings of mass murderer Audrey Hale cannot be released to the public because the parents of her victims hold the copyright. Judge Myles agreed that this was a novel argument, but there’s more to it. The writings are evidence of Hale’s motive in the slaying of nine-year-olds Evelyn Dieckhaus, Hallie Scruggs and William Kinney and adults Cynthia Peak, Katherine Koonce and Mike Hill at a Christian school in Nashville in March of 2023. Hill was black but no word of racism on the part of Hale, and little if anything about an anti-Christian hate crime or even “gun violence.” The Biden White House declined to name the victims and portrayed the “trans community” as the party “under attack.”

From the start, the FBI has fought to suppress evidence in the case, but the real question is why the bureau failed to prevent the attack and played no role in the takedown of the mass murderer. In similar style, the FBI failed to prevent terrorist attacks at Fort Hood (2009, 14 dead), San Bernardino (2015, 14 dead) and Orlando in 2016, with 49 dead. The FBI is also suppressing evidence in the murders of DHS whistleblower Philip Haney and DNC official Seth Rich. In both cases the FBI mounted no serious search for suspects, so observers might wonder what the bureau knew and when they knew it.

The FBI now suppresses evidence of motive in the Nashville murders, with back-up from judge Myles, who describes herself as “the first to bring this diverse and inclusive perspective to our civil trial court bench in Nashville.” The response from attorneys and writers will be of interest but one thinks of Absence of Malice, in which US Attorney James J. Wells (Wilford Brimley) pronounces a bogus argument “horse pucky.”
