Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theorist Arrested For Stealing Memorials
A Sandy Hook “truther” who believes the massacre was a hoax has been arrested in Herndon, Virginia. Police found two stolen memorial signs in his possession.
The man, Andrew Truelove, also allegedly called one of the victim’s mothers and taunted her, saying her daughter never existed.
Police in northern Virginia have arrested a man accused of stealing memorial signs for victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut…Authorities say 28-year-old Andrew Truelove was motivated by a belief that the Sandy Hook shootings were a hoax.
Herndon police say one sign was stolen from Mystic, Connecticut, and the other was stolen from a playground in Mantoloking, New Jersey. They were both dedicated to Chase Kowalski and Grace McDonnell, two of the 20 first-graders killed in the 2012 massacre.
In the midst of America’s narcissism epidemic, we can expect a “truther” movement to spring up after every tragedy or terrorist attack. Pretending you have top-secret insider knowledge that other people don’t have is another way of saying “I am special.” So it’s natural that people who undermine that delusion–the parents who had to identify their children’s bodies, the rescuers who witnessed the horror firsthand–will be targeted for harassment. Thank God this sociopath is being prosecuted. It’s hard to feel special when you’re sitting in a jail cell.
