    The only justification is "some people may be offended". Flimsy at best.
    I believe phone calls should be private and contents only released with the okay of the individuals who made and received the call. Phone calls shouldn't be released for the sake of making money,political gains or trying to boost ratings.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I said no. It would only open up painful wounds for the people living there.

    I really don't care...

    I can see both sides of the issue. The familys won't want to have those wounds reopened, yet I believe in the FOIA.
    However, if it is done for profit........ that would annoy me...

    In the end, I won't listen to them nor read any transcripts, so it has no effect on me.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    Maybe if people who are so adamant about automatic weapon proliferation, such as the NRA, had to confront the carnage those weapons can create, they would rethink their position or at least have to own up to it. That's one reason i can think of.

    Should the 911 recordings be released?
    I don't see why not. If people don't want to hear it, they shouldn't listen to it.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Private calls should be kept private - that I agree with. However, you don't call 911 for the purpose of anonymity. In situations like those, you have absolutely no expectation of privacy.

    I'm talking of ways to accomplish actual gun reform. You can call it whatever you want. All i care of is to reduce these tragedies.
