With what will surely be known as one of the most baffling, awful years in recent history finally coming to a merciful end, I figured I’d wrap things up with a (very) short list of the 2016’s biggest cowards, at least according to me, and presented in no particular order:

“Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”
Chapter Seven
By: Allan Powell and Kelley Watt

Note: Chapter Seven was originally published in two parts. I have gone back, added some information, corrected some grammatical issues, and combined the two parts into this one entry. I have left the originals (while adjusting the content) so that I do not disrupt existing discussion and external links. Thanks!

Let’s say that you’re the kind of person who enjoys magic shows. So you gather up your wife (or husband!) and kids one Friday night and head on down to the… well, wherever it is a magician would perform. You’re feeling great, so you splurge on front row tickets and take your seat, excited for a night of family-friendly entertainment. The magician finally takes the stage and kicks the night off by pulling a rabbit out of his hat. It’s a classic trick. The kids are impressed and everyone’s going nuts. The magician then spends the next hour and a half repeatedly performing the very same trick, pulling the same rabbit out of the same hat, over and over and over again. You’d be pretty pissed, right? Because that’s the situation we find ourselves in with Fetzer and his crew pulling the same dumb trick yet again: presenting photos out of order as well as out of context.

The structure for this chapter’s debunk is going to be a little different: rather than break it down on a claim-by-claim basis, I’m going to address pages at a time, highlighting certain claims where necessary. It’ll be much easier to follow if you not only have a copy of the book (which I hope you didn’t pay for – remember that magician?) as well as the files available through Connecticut’s final report, which I will be referencing frequently.

When I wrote Part Seven of this series, I had mentioned that I was in the process of sorting through somewhere around one hundred and twenty additional photographs taken in and around Sandy Hook School between 2008 – the year Sandy Hook deniers and hoaxers such as James Fetzer erroneously claim that the school was secretly shuttered, all while failing to provide even a single piece of empirical evidence to support their ridiculous fairy tales – and 2012, which is of course the year Adam Lanza broke into the school and murdered twenty-six people. Many of those photographs ended up in the entries that followed while others provided even further proof that Wolfgang Halbig is nothing more than a liar (spoiler: he never paid me).

Even after all of that, I still had over one hundred and one photographs left over – all collected from The Newtown Bee (which helpfully provides photographic metadata to the public for nearly all of their content) and The Newtown Patch – that were a bit more difficult for me to organize. So this entry serves to act as a “dumping ground” of sorts, heavy on photographic evidence of the school’s operation while lacking the structure or narrative seen in previous entries in the series.

Since there are so many photographs, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for me to post every last one of them. Instead, I will post those I believe to be the most important or incriminating to deniers like Fetzer and Halbig while simply linking to the remainder. I will also do my absolute best to present them in chronological order and with the corresponding articles whenever possible. Photos that are of no real significance and contain personal information (and there are about a half dozen or so of those total) will be left out for obvious reasons.

As I sort through nearly one hundred and twenty additional photographs taken in and around Sandy Hook Elementary during the four year period James Fetzer and his brain dead supporters erroneously claim the school was closed, I noticed that a handful of well-known and accomplished children’s authors generously came and met with the students. As the dates of these visits can be corroborated, one is forced to wonder whether Fetzer believes these accomplished authors A) are complicit in the “hoax”, B) were somehow lured into a convincingly staged school full of children (which was simultaneously being used as “storage”, according to Maria Chang and Allan Powell) for the sake of a couple of photographs quietly published in the local paper. Or maybe he’ll just dismiss them as “fakes”, much like he does with everything else that he can’t twist and manipulate to fit into his narrative.

Let’s take a quick look at some of the guests who have passed through the school between 2010-2012:

#10 – “There Was An Emergency Preparedness Drill/Exercise Nearby”

Mentioned at least three times in “Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”, FEMA’s “Planning for the Needs of Children in Disasters” is alternately mischaracterized as a “drill” or an “exercise”. In reality, “Planning for the Needs of Children in Disasters” is a six hour independent study course, based on material taken from this document by Save The Children. While FEMA offers the course online, some state organizations also teach it in a classroom environment, which means that it ends up looking a bit more like this:

Is there a more exciting subject than trees? I submit that there is not.

Throughout Chapter 8 of “Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”, expert in absolutely nothing whatsoever Alan Powell leans heavily on the premise that the crime scene photos taken both inside and outside of Sandy Hook Elementary School were actually taken sometime in the fall; “late October or early November” is his estimate. “Dr. Eowyn” (aka Maria Hsia) also posits this asinine theory in the similarly ridiculous Chapter 2, “Six Signs Sandy Hook Elementary School Was Closed”.

After powering through chapters seven and eight of “Nobody Died At Sandy Hook”, I wanted to reach out to Allan Powell — who contributed both chapters — to see whether he was willing to clarify a couple of things for me. Mainly, with so many pictures that were not taken on December 14th (according to Powell, of course), I wanted to know when he believed they were taken as well as whether or not there were any photographs in existence he believed were actually taken that day. By forcing him to establish a timeline, I wanted to give him enough rope to hang himself.

Like so many Sandy Hook deniers, Allan’s information wasn’t particularly easy to find. But I was able to locate an e-mail address and I wrote him a short, non-confrontational e-mail. I was surprised not only that he replied, but that he appeared even more clueless than I had expected.

I’ll present the entire e-mail chain, in chronological order. So read from the top down. Powell’s replies are in brown (because what other color would he be?).
