Was Sandy Hook a conspiracy?
Debate Rounds (3)
In my opinion, your thoughts are almost disgusting. How can you claim that Sandy Hook was a conspiracy? 20 students from ages 6 to 7 were killed. First graders slaughtered in the middle of the school day. Parents without the opportunities to even say good bye.
Be this as it may, I am interested in your conspiracy, and I am willing to hear it out and even possibly, if you are convincing enough, to change my mind.
But don't count on it.
Present your information well, and do your best to preserve human dignity.
Anyhoo, I did, despite what you implied (all right... boldly stated), do some research, I just wanted you to explain to me your views on the matter. Seeing as how you didn't, I will base my argument off of what I have read, but if your theory is different, do complain. But quieter. Please.
I will assume we both saw the Sandy Hook Fully Exposed video. While making some convincing arguments, what the video makers did could hardly be called "factual." They did what many media outlets do nowadays and strung together a whole bunch of clips without properly explaining any particular instance. For example, the laughing dad of the apparently dead girl clip (Time: 8:34ish). The video claimed that the clip was the after the shooting, when in reality, it was nearly two weeks after, still time to be grieving, but enough time to have gotten over it to have a sense of humor. Also, isn't it convenient how he covers the clip with dialogue? I thought so.
Also, throughout the video, he claims things that no one could possibly know, such as the non-existence of certain medical personal or the lack of parentage of a given interviewee.
I don't know if you know believe that the shooting never occurred, but if you do, you need some serious facts to back up your claim.
After this hoax claim arose, there was a massive revolt from the communities of Sandy Hook. Paid actors don't care if people think it's a hoax a year later, but genuine parents who genuinely lost a kid? You can bet they'll fight back.
And finally (trump card), I know a victim of Sandy Hook. You know Natalie Hammond? She was a survivor of the attack. Mind you, my family does not know her family well, but my cousins/aunt/uncle know the Hammonds quite well. And let me assure you from a person closer to the shootings than most, IT HAPPENED. And I stick with my original statement. Anyone who believes the shooting never occurred needs to either present some huge block of mind-blowing evidence or shut... their... little... mouths...
Once again, I don't mean to offend anyone. I just feel very passionately about this whole subject. Thank you.
The evidence for Sandy Hook being faked, is there. It may not be, but through the evidence that I have seen, I just don't see that being the case. This being my evidence..
1.) Three donation websites had Sandy Hook donations pages set up three days before the shooting. The United Way was one of them. And I do not mean the Google cache dates, I mean the dates on the actual sites.
2.) A few other sites also did the same. Again, not the google cache sates either
3.) The first aerial footage of Sandy Hook Elementary School shows police swarming the school. However, it is not actually Sandy Hook, it is another school all together. Don't believe me, Google Earth it.
4.) The FBI also released the Connecticut crime statistics for 2012, and in Newtown, CT, it said there were 0. That's quite remarkable since 26 supposedly died in December 2012.
5.) What about the parents? Especially Robbie Parker. For example, when we walks out of the building laughing, sees the camera, and immediately tries to put himself into character and look as though he is crying. Also, all the interviews of the parents, showed no tears and the crying looked so staged. I understand that people cry themselves out. But for all of the parents to do this, and not one truly sob when discussing it, is ridiculous. I have two kids, and I would have sobbed for three months.
Anyhoo, the evidence you provided matched exactly to the video I watched. Can we assume we watched the same video? That would make it easier. If you haven't seen this video, the link is at the end of this case.
This video is a classic example of some sicko trying to make it look like a national tragedy was a hoax. What I don't get is, what's the motive? But more on this later. Now, reasons why this video is not a valid source of fact. First, it's a mite bit suspicious that the "author" refuses to use his voice. Even random You tube gamers verbalize their views. This shows that the maker of the video is either suspicious or does not have the devise to put words to the video, putting suspicion upon its validity. Also, a lack of sighted sources makes this video hardly credible.
1.) A whole bunch of people who are not directly influenced by this event do not realize that there are, in fact, two Sandy Hook schools, one being the attacked elementary school, the other being a middle school. Even I made that mistake for a congress debate, taking size statistics from one instead of the other. Is it possible that you and the video made the same mistake? After checking things out, I have decided the video did. Whether you have or not... that's for you to determine.
2.) In regards to the other statistics, I don't know what to tell ya. Based off of what I can tell, your information is invalid. All of the statistics I've found support the Sandy Hook shooting. I don't know from where you got your statistics, but I can tell you that they are wrong.
