Nashville Shooter's Manifesto Reportedly A 'Blueprint Of Total Destruction,' FBI Slow-Walking Its Release
Remember that manifesto from the Nashville shooter? The one that's supposedly being released sometime in the future? Yeah, the FBI's still working on that. So it should be ANY day now. Based on what we know of their competency.
According to local politicians, the manifesto is a "blueprint of total destruction" and its contents are "astronomically dangerous". They also claim the FBI is purposely stalling its release. Metro Nashville Council Member Courtney Johnston told the NY Post the FBI has already decided the manifesto will not be released in its entirety: "What I was told is, her manifesto was a blueprint on total destruction, and it was so, so detailed at the level of what she had planned. That document in the wrong person’s hands would be astronomically dangerous."

She also said the vast majority of the manifesto, if released, would present too much of a danger to the public. A Metro Nashville Police Department high-ranking official reportedly told her it keeps him up at night, which made her not want to read it.
The NY Post said the Metro Nashville Police Department and the FBI each deferred the newspaper to the other agency when contacted for comment. So that's helpful.
The Louisville shooter also had a disturbing 13-page manifesto laying out his planned attack. He reportedly wanted to show how easy it is to buy a gun in Kentucky and highlight America's mental health crisis. It's currently with the Louisville Police Department, and they would not confirm nor deny any details about it to the NY Post.

Personally, I think the manifestos should absolutely be released. The families of the victims and the public have a right to know what spurred people to such violence - if we don't know what caused it, how can anyone take meaningful steps to prevent it from happening again?
