Parents of Sandy Hook victim fear Alex Jones’ followers

The parents of one of the first-graders gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School nearly 10 years ago have gone into isolation while in Texas for their defamation case against “Infowars” hoax peddler Alex Jones, their lawyer testified Monday.

Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, who lost their 6-year-old son Jesse in the December 2012 massacre, have had to hire security since they arrived in Austin, where the trial is being held because it’s where Jones and his businesses are headquartered.

“Unfortunately, due to some encounters this week outside of the courthouse, Neil and Scarlett have gone into isolation under the protection of security professionals,” the family’s attorney, Mark Bankston, said in a statement…

No reasonable, educated, well-read American is surprised.

Parents of Kids Murdered at Sandy Hook School Sue Conspiracy Nutball

❝ Parents of two children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School attacks filed defamation lawsuits on Monday against right-wing conspiracy theorist and radio show host Alex Jones, who has questioned the authenticity of the 2012 shooting that left 26 dead, including 20 children.

Leonard Pozner and his former wife, Veronique De La Rosa, parents of Noah Pozner, and Neil Heslin, the father of Jesse Lewis, are seeking more than $1 million in damages in separate lawsuits…

❝ “This conspiracy theory, which has been pushed by InfoWars and Mr. Jones since the day of the shooting, alleges that the Sandy Hook massacre did not happen, or that it was staged by the government and concealed using actors, and that the parents of the victims are participants in a horrifying cover-up,” the plaintiffs said in their suits.

Both boys were among 20 first-grade students killed inside the school in Newtown, Conn.

The level of conspiracy fabrication beloved of nutballs like this deserves the contempt heaped upon Jones – for example – as a scumbag and a liar.
