Internet panhandler Wolfgang Halbig must have collected more money from his frequent donation drives than he knows what to do with because he’s practically begging people like me (as well as CW Wade of Sandy Hook Facts) to take it from him, one grand at a time. There’s simply no other way to explain his repeated offers to hand out $1,000 to anyone who can produce photographs from the 2012 Veteran’s Day Breakfast, an annual tradition at Sandy Hook School.
Here’s just one example of Halbig’s proposal, taken from his official Facebook page (which is an borderline unreadable mess, for the record):
And here’s the full text. I’ve left all spelling and grammatical errors intact because this is the guy that has positioned himself as the lead “investigator” for Sandy Hook “truth”:
I AM STILL WAITING
Why do we have NO takers in Newtown, CT on reward money like a $1000.00 for just one picture showing school busses[sic] at Sandy Hook Elementary School at the end of the school day in 2012-2013 lining up to pick up the children for their ride home?
We should see no less then[sic] 10 school busses[sic] stacked back to back.
Now surely the police officers must have some of those pictures along with about a 1000 parents taken[sic] pictures or shooting a video. This is what we as parents do.
How about a picture in 2012-2013 showing waiting parents lining up to pick up their children at Sandy Hook Elementary School at the end of the school day.
Here is another $1000.00 for such a simple request.
School Busses[sic] and parents waiting in 2012-2013 waiting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School stacked like they were at St Rose of Lima which I have attached a picture for your viewing.
I am so tired of seeing pictures from 2011-2012 school years at Sandy Hook Elementary School showing Veterans eating in the cafeteria on Memorial Day.
Show us the 2012-2013 pictures of Veterans eating in the Sandy Hook Elementary School Cafeteria and here goes another $1000.00 thousand dollars.
Easy money, indeed! If only Wolfgang were an honest man.
First of all, those of you who have read Sandy Hook Was Open, Part Five: Dawn Hochsprung’s Twitter Feed are already well aware that these pictures (timestamped by Twitter) exist and have been public since 2012:
Certainly that should be the end of it, right? I have to imagine that my check or money order or Visa prepaid gift card is already on its way (though I prefer my cash in a nondescript briefcase). Or maybe Wolfgang just needs more proof first, maybe from a source other than Twitter. After all, deniers are experts at moving the goalposts.
Luckily there’s also the Newtown Bee, who reports on the school’s Veteran’s Day breakfast every year. 2012 was certainly no different and we have the proof (digitally as well as in print).
From the November 16th, 2012 print edition of the paper:
This article is also available on the Newtown Bee’s website, via their archives:

This photo’s Exif or metadata can be viewed on the Newtown Bee’s website in order to confirm that it was indeed taken on November 12th, 2012, at 9:21AM:
That makes four photos from the 2012 Veterans Day Breakfast. So where’s my money, Wolfgang? Are you a man of your word or not?
