James Tracy, a former tenured professor at Florida Atlantic University, received many vicious death threats for simply exercising his First Amendment right of free speech on Sandy Hook. (See “Hate mail, death threats sent to Prof. James Tracy for being a Sandy Hook skeptic“)
Not only was nothing done about the death threats Dr. Tracy received to both himself and his young children, FAU saw fit to fire this tenured professor for a trivial administrative reason — that of not filing a piece of paperwork in a timely manner.
Contrast Tracy to the case of Lucy Richards, a 57-year-old mentally-ill, wheelchair-bound woman. Two days ago in Florida, Richards was sentenced to 5 months in prison for issuing death threats by voice- and e-mail to Lenny Pozner, father of alleged Sandy Hook child victim Noah.
Even more troubling is that in sentencing Lucy Richards, U.S. District Judge James I. Cohn, a George W. Bush nominee, pronounced that “no one should cite a conspiracy theory or belief in a hoax in the deaths of 20 children and six adults that occurred at the school,” thereby implicitly criminalizing belief in conspiracy theories.
As if the U.S. government had not been proven to engage in conspiracies again and again. (See Nixon’s Watergate and the Kennedy Administration’s stunning Operation Northwoods as examples.)
Professor James Fetzer received a phone call that Richards had attempted to commit suicide. See his post “CBS NEWS: Woman who threatened parent of Sandy Hook victim sent to jail“.
By the way, did you know that it was the CIA who, in 1967, coined the term “conspiracy theories” and recommended its use to the media for the express purpose to discredit speculations about the Kennedy assassination? (ZeroHedge)
A study in contrasts.
In June 2016, three boys, all Muslim migrants, rape a developmentally disabled five-year-old girl, Jayla Peterson, in Twin Falls, Idaho. The oldest boy films the entire incident.
Months later, it’s as if an actual rape had never happened. The boys are found guilty not of rape, but of lewd sexual conduct. And the proceedings, which were said to involve five hours of commiserating with the boys’ “post-traumatic stress disorder,” are kept secret.
After the sentencing, also kept secret, the judge forbids the family to talk about why they are grievously unhappy with his decision, threatening to jail them if they do. They are treated as if they are the criminals.
Jayla Peterson’s emotional turmoil is a footnote; not even that, it is as if she never suffered, never experienced pain, will not be changed forever by the terror and humiliation she was forced to endure by…
