Journalist Fighting to Obtain Nashville Shooter Manifesto Receives Chilling Death Threat:

Journalist Fighting to Obtain Nashville Shooter Manifesto Receives Chilling Death Threat: ‘I’ll Go to Prison to End You’
by Jack Davis, The Western Journal Jul. 24, 2023 11:35 am[/b]

The fight to pull the manifesto of school shooter Audrey Hale from the grip of authorities brought danger to one journalist-businessman who has filed a lawsuit to learn what the killer wrote before the massacre at a Nashville Christian school in March that left three children and three adults dead.

Radio talk show host Michael Patrick Leahy, who has filed a lawsuit to release the manifesto, received an ugly threat July 9, according to Just the News.

“Michael Patrick Leahy … if it were not illegal to beat your ass up … I’d have done it months ago. I have called your show twice because you decided to pound home the transgender Audrey Hale while people who suffered were healing. You dirty potato eating Mick. If I see you on the street … I’m going to end your conservative slant eye a–,” an email to Leahy declared.

“I’m willing to go to prison to end you. You dirty drug addict eyed Irish fool. You either end your talk show or I’ll end your life in real time while you do it. You have no right to the manifesto of Audrey Hale and you just want content by obtaining it,” the email said.

“Send the authorities. You’d better if you still want to live, Leahy,” the email added.

Authorities have a suspect in connection with the threat. Michael Alonzo Rouse, 49, has been charged with aggravated stalking and has been released on $7,500 bond, Just the News reported.

Although the official ruling in The Covenant School shooting on March 27 has been that Hale acted alone, officials have refused to release the manifesto, citing the need to protect an ongoing investigation.

The Covenant Presbyterian Church, which operates the school, the school itself, and a group of parents also want the manifesto kept quiet.

Parent Erin Kinney, whose 9-year-old son, William, was killed in the shooting, wrote in a letter to the court that those seeking the manifesto do not care about the “wellbeing of their fellow humans” and “seek to rob the six murder victims of dignity in their deaths by demanding the release of sensitive details,” according to The Tennessee Star, an online newspaper that’s part of Leahy’s Star News Network.

“These petitioners have shown no respect or regard for my family or for the hundreds of surviving Covenant trauma victims, even going so far as to shamefully deny their victimhood before you, as they seek to publish and profit from the deranged, hateful, and exceedingly dangerous ramblings of an individual who renounced her humanity and gunned down children,” Kinney wrote.

Releasing the manifesto “could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings,” the FBI has said, according to LifeSite News.

However, the Star News Digital Media lawsuit seeking the manifesto’s release argues otherwise.

“Hale is dead and no threat remains to the public related to the events of March 27,” the lawsuit states, according to LifeSite News.
A number of mass shooters have manifestos. We don't see them. Why not? Wouldn't it be in the interest of public safety to understand the motivations of these shooters? Possibly raise awareness of certain red flags that could prevent some future shootings? Are the authorities hiding something?

It's likely that at least some of the mass shooters are being radicalized. They don't want us to know who's behind it.

Is he a slant eye or dirty potato eating Mick?

Why can't this idiot make up his mind?

@Slade Inquiring people want to know!
I bet she/he mentions her/hims FBI handler by name… 🍿
Forget feelings the public need to know!

The misplaced compassion towards the shooter and the white house secretary saying her heart goes out to the trans community were both disgusting.

All talk of compassion for the shooter- none for the Christian families.

I feel awful for the parents, but don’t understand the vitriol of that parent against the public for wanting to know the truth. It makes no sense. It’s like she’s protecting the killer.
