Two professors at mainstream, respected state universities are advocating conspiracy theories about the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

James Tracy, a tenured associate professor of media history Florida Atlantic University and a one-time union leader, has claimed that the school shooting didn’t happen as it was widely reported and perhaps didn’t happen at all, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

“As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends,” Tracy wrote on his blog, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Tracy said he believes that the Sandy Hook shooting could have been constructed to increase public support for gun control.

He has authored a report showing, he says, how a mélange of federal agencies, state agencies and major media outlets could have framed 20-year-old Adam Lanza as a lone, methodical gunman when, in fact, several additional people were involved.

The FAU professor has also alleged that some kind of training exercise gone awry could have caused the carnage at Sandy Hook.“Was this a drill?” he has asked, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The stable person does not spend this much time with people/services he does not enjoy and care a great deal about. Too bad everyone else on this forum doesn't share a similar feeling for you.

Attacking someone you don't know, never will and have no idea who I am is rather stupid moron.
