    There is nothing to be gained from the photos being released other than satisfying morbid curiosities and further victimizing the families of those lost. It is sick to even consider releasing them. Let these 26 innocents rest in peace.

    To say there is nothing to be gained is ignorant. You can always learn. I'm more interested to know about the 911 calls, if you remember that day, they had the school blocked off from the front of the driveway. Why did they not have ambulances and such available to drive right by the doors to get survivors/wounded? How come every single person that was struck died? Lots of inconsistencies that could be and should be cleared up by simply releasing the photos. If you'd like the change the law that is fine, change it for the future, not retroactively for the past.

    Why did ambulances not drive up to the doors? Because acts of violence delay emergency responders from entering a building until police have marked it as "all clear". You cannot have a shooter still alive and shooting at 1st responders. Common knowledge. Why did all who were shot die? Maybe because bullets kill people, especially tiny people. Do we need to release photos of dead babies so ignorant conspiracy theorist can get off? Absolutely not. Lets try and figure out why men like Matt and Joe wasnt to see pictures of slaughtered children and work on curing them of their illness.
