Sandy Hook truther sentenced for threatening victim’s family

Sandy Hook truther sentenced for threatening victim's family

Lucy Richards

(Story broke 6/7/2017)

57-year-old Lucy Richards of Tampa, Florida, was expected to enter into a plea deal with prosecutors for threatening a man by the name of Lenny Pozner. If that name sounds familiar to you, it’s because Mr. Pozner lost his son Noah at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting at the hands of Adam Lanza. He’s also taken up the unenviable task of taking on Sandy Hook truthers, or people who believe Sandy Hook was a hoax perpetrated by the government in order to erode the 2nd Amendment. Because of that, he’s been the target of many attacks by the tin foil hat wearing crowd. Richards was one of those loons who had made threats against Mr. Pozner saying…

…“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.

That is actually one of the more mild threats that Mr. Pozner has received.

As I was saying, Richards was expected to enter into a plea deal, but the presiding judge threw out the plea agreement and sentenced Richards to 5 months in prison, 5 months under house arrest and three years on probation.

Upon her sentencing, Mr. Pozner said it best…

People like Lucy Richards, who torment victims of violent crime by denying and mocking their pain are a sad reality. Her sadism is evident in her statements and the twisted joy she gets in pouring salt in our wounds and adding to our pain.

“Whatever demons drove her to threaten me, she needs to be held accountable for her crime.”

It will be interesting to see if she continues to cling to her conspiracy-laden lunacy once her sentenced is completed.

Sandy Hook truther no-shows court date for death threats

Sandy Hook truther no-shows court date for death threats

57-year-old Lucy Richards was expected to appear in court today, in order to enter into a plea agreement that would spare her jail time. Richards was accused of harassing Lenny Pozner whose son Noah was killed at Sandy Hook. She is a conspiracy theorist who is said to believe that Sandy Hook never happened and was made up by the government in order to take the guns of citizens. Please allow me to refresh your memory as to what Richards is accused of saying to Mr. Pozner.

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 last we had heard from Richards, she was expected to enter into a plea agreement that would see her plead guilty and would only receive house arrest as a sentence. Instead, she decided to just not show up to her court date. She allegedly told the Federal Court in Palm Beach County, Florida that she would not be attending today’s hearing with no reason being given.

“Miss Richards called my investigator and said she’s not coming,” Assistant Federal Public Defender Robert Berube told the judge. “That’s all I have.”

“Did she give a reason?” the judge asked.

“No,” said Berube. He told the judge his office gave Richards a written and verbal notice of the court hearing.

Now she has a warrant out for her arrest and prosecutors could possibly back out of the deal. If she is found guilty, she could be sentenced to 20 years in prison.

If you were to ask me why I thought she no-showed her court appearance, I would say that she is going to mount some conspiracy theory-laden defense that will try to draw attention to her supposition that Sandy Hook never happened. If I had to hazard a guess, she is going to try to force the federal government to prove that Sandy Hook happened, because why should she enter into a guilty plea when the instigating incident ‘never occurred’? To be honest, I hope she does try this defense as it usually never works out well in court for these conspiracy theorists. If that happens, I really hope the judge throws the book at her and makes an example out of her. These nutjobs need to be shown that there are repercussions for absurd actions.

UPDATE 4/3/2017: Richards was arrested again over the weekend. She offered no explanation for the no-show other than she doesn’t want her fate to be in the hands of a judge, indicating that she now wants to go to trial. She is now in the custody of the FBI and will appear in Federal Court within the next few days.

My mind is running wild at the possibilities of shenanigans that could happen during the trial.

Sandy Hook truther charged with making death threats against victim’s family

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.

Father of victim deals with Sandy Hook truthers

The following link is a great story from The Trace about Lenny Pozner entitled “What Kind of Person Calls a Mass Shooting a Hoax?” Mr. Pozner is the father of Noah Pozner who was tragically killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Mr. Pozner also decided to take it upon himself to engage the people, and I use that term loosely, who believe the conspiracy theory that Sandy Hook didn’t happen.

This is just a sampling of how the ‘truthers’ reacted to him…

Pozner looked to engage in some sort of dialogue with the people who, around this time, made him their chief target. (One video montage that started making the rounds showed images of Noah set to a soundtrack of pornographic sounds.) In June 2014, Pozner accepted an invitation to join a private Facebook group called Sandy Hook Hoax. He told its members that he was willing to answer their questions. “I think I lasted all of eight minutes,” he recalls. One participant said, “Man, I’m gonna have to coach you up if you wanna go on TV and make money Lenny.” Another typical attacker proclaimed, “Fuck your fake family, you piece of shit.”

This is not unlike the jackass that approached Vickie Soto’s family in public to tell them that she never existed.

I urge you to read the entire article to see what these dregs who refuse to believe in reality do to further their preposterous conspiracy fantasies.

I really would love to know what’s broken in the brains of conspiracy theorists that make them believe the garbage they spew.

UPDATE 12/21/2015: One of Mr. Pozner’s detractors, James Tracy, a professor at Florida Atlantic University, has been fired by the school for allegedly harassing Mr. Pozner.

In case you’re wondering the level of Tracy’s harassment…

‘Tracy even sent us a certified letter demanding proof that Noah once lived, that we were his parents, and that we were the rightful owner of his photographic image.’

Firing isn’t enough karma for this assclown. If I were the Pozner’s I would be suing him for every last piece of tin foil.

UPDATE 1/14/2016: In the wake of Tracy’s firing the Washington Post is reporting that the threats against Lenny Pozner have only increased.

A few days after Tracy’s firing was announced, Pozner got several death threats. A woman (judging by the voice) left messages on his phone that sounded like, “You’re gonna die you [expletives and slurs deleted] …And what are you going to do about it? You can do absolutely nothing. … this is coming to you real soon [expletive deleted]. You going to die,” and “You [expletive deleted] look behind you, justice is coming to you real soon.”

I’m actually dumbfounded for once because there’s nothing new that I can say about these crackpots that I haven’t said already. It’s just so pathetic that they’ve taken to harassing a man who lost such a young child in one of the worst crimes in recent history.

UPDATE 4/26/2016: James Tracy is now suing Florida Atlantic University claiming that his termination violated his First Amendment rights. On the one hand, FAU is a state-run university so it could be argued that the government curtailed his speech. On the more realistic hand, harassment is not a form of protected speech. Also, I have to add that I love how these conspiracy nuts will use the courts for their own gain but if they were the one being brought before a judge wouldn’t recognize the authority of the court.
