In December of 2012, Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and shot 20 children and six adult staff members. Since then, the parents of those children have had to deal not only with not having their children anymore, but also with the psychotic ravings of Alex Jones and others who believe that the whole thing was an elaborate ploy to take their stupid guns away.
I hope that when these parents are done with him Jones won't have a pot to piss in. (Sorry, Mama!)
Or a window to throw it out of.
The Light Brigade? Aren't they the brownshirts Obama recruited to confiscate all our American light bulbs and replace them with Chinese crap? I guess when they knock on your door and demand all your light bulbs you will be a believer.
Where was the suit filed? It will make a difference.
The parents are private citizens. The threshold for libel against a private citizen is far lower than for public figures. If they get any kind of competent judges and juries, Jones is going to be out millions of ameros.
No. A warm jail and free meals is too for him.
Even Joe Arpaio's tent jail and green bologna sandwiches is too good for him.
Let him claim that in court . That should play well with the Judge and jury.
We are so, so, so, lucky to have Editrix as our FL.
And ALL the upfists for the Crimea reference.
(While she may not be a Tennyson, I’ll certainly take her ;)
Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die: Also to take your light bulbs and give you cash for your clunker (which was an admittedly horrible program).
Where are the rules posted exactly? I have a bunch of creative suggestions involving industrial equipment and a few gallons of Vaseline but I’m not sure if they're kosher...
Jones, from what I've seen, is a habitual loser in the cases brought against him as he was in his child custody case.
If the plaintiffs prevail, it will go along ways to muting the rest of the right wing hit squad. They will know that their inflammatory speech is a criminal act and poses liability.
The grieving parents are in the right on this and deserve to be unburdened from the hateful and crazed.
Huh I've seen both & never noticed. Of course, I prolly had no idea who the hell he was cause being a luddite has its upside.
What needs to happen is that people have to start suing Alex Jones for 100 Million Dollars. He needs to hurt, and he needs to REALLY hurt.
If my baby (and yeah, they were babies) was murdered after spending his last moments in fear, confusion and terror, I bet I wouldn't be sleeping much at night from then on, anyway.
the fact that these parents can wake up every morning and get through a day, in a world where Alex Jones is alive and their child is dead, makes them a helluva lot stronger than I could ever be.
You're right - calling Jones a bag of shit is complimenting him.
Remember the guy in Waking Life tearing down the road with two megaphones on his car roof, screaming about the people "who want to control (his life) EVEN MORE?" That's him.
In A Scanner Darkly, he's on a street corner screaming about how the war on Substance D is costing everyone their freedoms (and still not stopping the drugs) before Homeland Security tazers him and carries him away.
He'll make that up with his Chinese caffeine pill sales in a week.
