    I’m not much for vigilante justice, and I’m certainly not suggesting violence, but.
    I think an appropriate punishment would be for the suspect to be locked in a room with the parents of those children to engage in a discussion about the matter.

      These conspiracy nuts need a dose of reality once in a while. That would do it for them. These are the same kind of people that think the moon landings were staged in a studio, and the government brought down the WTC. The Alex Jones type.

      I agree with rg9rts above about community service, tending to each Sandy Hook child’s grave, but also maybe actually making him sit in a room while he has to look at each photo of the child photographed on site. I know it’s macabe and I’m glad those photos have never been released, but that’s one of their theories as to why this was a “false flag”. If he has any shred of human decency at all, that would shut him up. I know I couldn’t take it.

    I’m sure there is some pro-NRA, conspiracy theory-addicted shock jock out there who is thumping his chest and proudly declaring:
    “I did that! He’s probably one of my listeners, so I made that happen!”

      Alex Jones just perked up.

        You joke, but having googled his name the first result is from Infowars.

    I would give him a 1,000 hours community service…..tending to each child’s grave

      I like that…because I’ve tended children’s graves before, and there’s no describing it…(made sure the toys all stayed where they belonged, etc, after mowing and trimming.)

    Unfortunately, the only thing he can be prosecuted for is harrassment. He’ll get a slap on the wrist and probably be ordered to have no further contact with the schools.

    He is a terrorist. It is that simple.

    stupid, foolish, lacking sensibility, small – all ok but criminal? hell, throw him in jail with the two joint guy. Somehow you all seem to have a need to incarcerate when the rest of the so called civilized world tries to reduce sentencing to things one might call crimes.
