’20 plotters’ comment played down:
Just going to quote here…
The top federal prosecutor in Minnesota says a Red Lake tribal police officer’s claim that as many has 20 students may have known about Jeff Weise’s plan to go on a killing spree at the reservation’s high school was “opinion,” and he refused to endorse it.
U.S. Attorney Tom Heffelfinger in Minneapolis pointed out that the comment, made during a school board meeting last week, came from a policeman whose department is not conducting the investigation into the March 21 shootings.
Even if 20 people didn’t know about the plot in advance if more than one person knew and didn’t do anything to stop it it’s too many.
