Requests for public records under the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act can result in threats of arrest under felony harassment charges. This is what former Florida State Trooper and school safety expert Wolfgang Halbig
discovered after repeatedly telephoning and sending the series of emails, a portion of which appear below, to Newtown, Connecticut state and U.S. federal officials demanding more information on the Sandy Hook School massacre of December 14, 2012.

Subject: Mike Kehoe your Police Chief should be immediately fired for Negligence
I find this e-mail very difficult to write but as a Former Florida State Trooper and old now find the actions of your Police Chief very disturbing.
I have dedicated my life in public service and to read about your police chief giving Lt. George Sinko only a letter of reprimand for failing to respond to the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting on Dec 14, 2012
You should ask yourself as to how a Lt. working an off-duty detail at a construction site and making overtime money can ignore 911 calls and a Newtown police dispatcher requesting help from police officers for shots fired at The Sandy Hook Elementary School.
I cannot imagine any police officer ignoring emergency help requests when children and school staff lives are being threatened. To sit in your car and listen to all those emergency calls go over the airwaves and do nothing is negligence.
For over two hours he sits and does absolutely nothing while children and school staff are being shot and killed.
Your Police Chief states in the newspaper that he is not a first responder. He also states that he was off duty.
I can tell you and so can any other certified law enforcement officer when working an off-duty detail that you are never off-duty especially when lives of children and school staff are at stake.
We in law enforcement are on duty 24/7 always on call.
This Lt is 24 year veteran and if he does not know his responsibilities then he should also be immediately be fired along with the Police Chief.
This is a national embarrassment that clearly demonstrates negligence by both the Police Chief for not calling him to duty that morning and for the Lt not responding to this crisis.
We are all first responders even if you are a Lt.
How embarrassing for the City of Newtown Ct having a Lt. sit for over two hours and not respond and only be given a letter of reprimand.
I know that there is more to the story and I only hope that you use common sense in handling this huge embarrassment for your City.

Subject: Last try for Freedom of Information Act from your Interim Superintendent
Please tell your Interim School Superintendent that his response is total Horsepoop.
Hiding behind the safety of children and school staff in not releasing my information request is unprofessional if he is an educator.
I am simply asking for the Vendors name who you the school district or school hired to install the security system at Sandy Hook Elementary School with address and contact numbers
Just like Stanley Security Solutions has installed all of the security tools at the Sandy Hook replacement school.
They have donated over $100,000 thousand dollars in front door access control with CCTV CAMERA AND ACCESS BUTTON WITH CMAERA BEING A COLOR CAMERA.
THEY HAVE PROVIDED CARD READERS AT VARIOUS DOORS FOR STAFF USE.
THEY HAVE PROVIDEd YOUR SCHOOL WITH A NUMBER OF CCTV COLOR CAMERAS PLACED IN VARIOUS AREAS OF THE SCHOOL WHICH I DON’T WANT TO DISCLOSE SINCE IT MAY PLACE CHILDREN AND SCHOOL STAFF AT RISK.
I need the total cost of the project.
I need the date of completion.
I need the breakdown of the total cost as to what did the cameras cost? Are they color or just black and white?
I do not want to know the locations as I do know the placement of the cameras at the Sandy Hook replacement school and I promise not to ever hurt any child or staff in your school district.
Please comply with my FOIA as soon a possible since I have been waiting forever.

Subject: Freedom of Information Act for the State of Ct.
Please provide me with copies of the contracts and costs for the Crime Scene Cleanup in Decontaminating and Sanitizing the Sandy Hook Elementary School after Dec 14, 2012 .
The School Districts was considering allowing children and school staff to return to the school and now they have decided just to tear it down.
Who was the company that you the police allowed in the school providing me with the start date and end date of removing all of the Bio-Hazard materials.
Copy of the licenses that the company provided to you for transporting Medical Waste.
They would have to remove all the blood, bodily fluids, brain matter, skull fragments and around 45-60 gallons of blood based on the number of children and school staff shot and killed that day.
I am the Chief Investigator for the Children’s Safety Institute and a School safety Expert which now requires this information to be made available since it has been 11 month and you have not even provided a simple police or incident report.
If you do not have that information then please direct me to the agency that would have been responsible for decontaminating the crime scene and Sanitizing it since you allowed them into the school to remove furniture.
My address is [address]
