Yahoo News reports on the terrible
BRUNSWICK, Ga. – Seven people were found slain and two critically injured Saturday at a mobile home park built on the grounds of a historic plantation in southeastern Georgia, police said.
Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering called it the worst mass slaying in his 25 years of police work in this coastal Georgia county. He wouldn't say how the victims died.
"This is a record for us. We've never had such an incident with so many victims," Doering told reporters. "It's not a scene that I would want anybody to see."
Do you find it odd that the Police Chief "wouldn't say how the victims died?" I certainly do. Imagine the horror if they hadn't been killed with bullets, but, let's say a knife or a metal pipe. That might be a good reason to be a bit hesitant to say how they died.
By going over to Bonnie's Blog of Blog, I was able to find the link to the local news which did confirm they were shot.
Police declined to say how the victims were killed or injured, but a county official close to investigation said today that they had been shot.
What is it with the police in this case? Are they just under orders to not release any information to the press? I couldn't help wondering if they're a little sensitive about the effect something like this will have on their state's reputation. Georgia is known to be one of the "easy gun law" states. Maybe the police feel it would be a shame for anyone to connect that with this.
What's your opinion? Is this just another one of the little incidents we must accept in order for the sacred gun rights to be preserved?
