Newtown official warns of harm from massacre details

The release of the new details surrounding the Newtown massacre and Adam Lanza's vast arsenal of weapons has only inflamed emotional wounds for some in the Connecticut town.

We struggle every day to stay on the path of recovery and every bit of information that becomes part of the public discourse holds a potential hurt for a family who has already suffered immeasurable harm.

I appreciate that full and accurate information may help us, as a society, learn how to predict and prevent such horrors from happening in the future. That gain, however speculative, must be balanced against the hurt experienced by those in the eye of the storm.

– Newtown local official E. Patricia Llodra
