Conspiracy theorist who claimed Sandy Hook shooting never happened to pay $450,000 to father of boy who died
The conspiracy theorist claimed that the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre never happened.
The father of a boy who was killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre has been awarded $450,000 by a jury in Wisconsin, America.
Leonard Pozner, whose six-year-old son Noah was killed during the shooting, sued a conspiracy theorist who claimed the shooting never took place.
James Fetzer published a book entitled Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, which claimed Noah’s death certificate is fake and Pozner lied about his son being dead.
According to The Guardian, Pozner claimed in court that the statements and the harassment he had received because of the book had given him post-traumatic stress disorder.
Fetzer, however, said that the damages amount was “absurd” and that he would appeal.
26 people were killed as a result of the Sandy Hook shooting, including 20 children aged between six and seven.
Recently, a group set up to show solidarity with the families involved in the Sandy Hook shooting released an incredibly powerful video, in an attempt to raise awareness of mass shootings in America.
