57-year-old Lucy Richards of Tampa, Florida, has been arrested for allegedly sending death threats to a Sandy Hook victim’s family. If you’re not familiar with the Sandy Hook truthers, they’re a bunch of conspiracy theorists who believe that the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School never took place and was a hoax perpetrated by the government designed to confiscate guns from gun owners. In the past I’ve posted about one such individual who confronted Vickie Soto’s sister and told her that she never existed.
Richards is accused of telling the parent “you gonna die, death is coming to you real soon,” according to federal court documents. The statements were made in January. She also wrote, “Look behind you it’s death,” according to the documents.
The parent that she was allegedly threatening was Lenny Pozner whose young son Noah was killed at Sandy Hook. Pozner has become the target of the tin foil hat wearing nutjobs because he took on the unenviable task of engaging these morons in discussing the reality of Sandy Hook.
Mr. Pozner has previously said the following about the Sandy Hook truthers…
“Conspiracy theorists erase the human aspect of history,” Pozner told the magazine.
“My child — who lived, who was a real person — is basically going to be erased.”
If convicted, Richards is looking at 20 years behind bars.
With the fourth anniversary of the tragedy approaching in the next couple of days I’d imagine that a number of these cretins will start emerging from the fetid swamps of their unreasonable imaginations.
UPDATE 12/16/2016: Richards has pleaded not guilty to making death threats against Mr. Pozner.
UPDATE 3/7/2017: Richards is now expected to plead guilty in a change of plea hearing scheduled for March 29th.
