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”
By: Allan Powell and Kelley Watt
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.

I like to believe that there isn’t a whole lot that escapes me, especially when it’s something this painfully obvious. But as reader Brian Neal has helpfully pointed out, I managed to miss a real whopper here.

If we ignore our better judgment and continue to treat the wild-eyed conspiracy theorists, con-men, and criminals who make up the Sandy Hook denialist cult with a level of respect that they have neither earned nor deserve by limiting our look at the school itself to the years of 2008 through 2012 – years that these total whackadoos, without so much as a whiff of actual evidence, falsely contend that the school was closed – we find yet another point of interest in the numerous glass display cases found in the school’s lobby area; somewhere in between 3-6 of them at a time throughout the years. Most of these cases were tall, vertical cabinets, located just inside of the main entrance, usually along the large front window Adam Lanza used to gain entry into the school. There was also a museum-like table display, which was moved around from time to time, depending on what was being featured. Lastly, there was a large display built into the wall at the corner of the lobby, in between the office and the west hallway. What these items have in common – besides the obvious, of course – is that in photographs published in the Newtown Bee, the Newtown Patch, as well as on the school’s website (all of which are included below), we can see their contents change time and time again, providing even more evidence of normal student activity inside of the school. Unless, of course, you somehow still believe that mystery agents spent four years meticulously and realistically decorating and furnishing a building (with up-to-date magazines for parents, brand new children’s books, thousands and thousands of dollars worth of cutting-edge technology, and of course pizza) that, according to James Fetzer, Wolfgang Halbig, Maria Hsia Chang – the usual cast of clowns – was “infested with asbestos” and being used exclusively for storage. And all for the benefit of some photographs most people will never see.
