Sandy Hook ‘truther’ tells victim’s mother that her daughter never existed and the shooting was a hoax after defacing playground named in little girls’ honor
Government has taken to lying and spying so much on American citizens that it’s commonplace for Americans to ‘not trust’ their own government. It’s gotten so bad for some people that they are beginning to doubt some terrible travesties under Obama’s Presidency. One of those events in doubt by a far left-wing group who call themselves ‘truthers’, is the Sandy Hook Elementary shootings where criminals took down a playground memorial at Sandy Hook School because they thought the shooting was a hoax.
A peace sign at a memorial playground dedicated to one of the victims has been stolen by a ‘truther’ who believes that the school shooting was staged. If vandalizing the playground was not enough, a man who identified himself as the culprit called victim Grace McDonnell’s mother and said that her daughter never existed.
During the call, CBS New York reported that the unidentified man told Lynn McDonnell that he was the one to take the peace sign and told her that he did so because the shooting was a hoax and her daughter was not real. Grace McDonnell was one of the 20 first graders who was shot and killed at the elementary school tragedy in December 2012.
A tribute playground has been built in Mystic, Connecticut and while the sign that bares Grace’s name is still in place, a second vinyl sign has been stolen from the site. The purple sign, which was reported as stolen on Tuesday May 6, had a copy of a peace sign drawn by Grace.
‘We certainly have increased our patrols doing checks down there,’ Captain Jerry Desmond told MailOnline.
‘It’s sad there are ignorant people who have to show their hatred in a place that was built by a community that shared and expressed their love for the families in Newtown that witnessed evil,’ said Bill Lavin, the founder of the ‘Where Angels Play Foundation’ which is building the memorial sites.
A band of conspiracy theorists believe that the December 14, 2012 shooting never happened and that the relatives of the victims are crisis actors who are part of a government scheme to draw upon the scandal for any number of reasons, like the since-failed attempt to impose stronger gun laws.
This is the second time in a week that one of the memorial playgrounds has been vandalized.
As an activist I can attest that there are so many other reasons to be angry with Government where we have actual proof that the Government is lying and targeting Americans. These ‘truthers’ have no plan, no strategy, no proof and are killing it for us who are fighting the real laundry list lies of Government like Benghazi, IRS and NSA Scandals and Fast and the Furious… if only they got involved with real provable scandals with such ardor and less criminal activity we might have a chance winning our country back.
