AbleChild Set to File Amicus Brief in Support of Alex Jones’ Freedom of SpeechPrint This Post
The non-profit organization AbleChild is currently working on filing an amicus brief in support of radio personality and InfoWars host Alex Jones in the defamation lawsuit that eight families of victims in the Sandy Hook massacre have brought against him. Recently, Jones requested that the matter be moved to federal court. Following the tragedy, Jones started to push the idea that the Sandy Hook killings were a set-up by the government, staged as an attempt to further their agenda to limit gun rights in America.
Another one of the reasons Jones is being attacked by these victims-turned-political activists is because he was one of the first news platforms to cover Ablechild vs Chief Medical Examiner, a Freedom of Information (FOI) request for the autopsy and toxicology results of 20-year-old Adam Lanza, who is accused of committing the horrifying 2012 massacre that killed 20 children, six adults, and his mother, Nancy. Ablechild filed the request immediately following the 2012 killings.
Ablechild’s FOI request was denied, but by denying AbleChild who represented the public, the government violated Connecticut’s Uniform Administrative Procedure Act, Connecticut’s public records law and the legislative intent for that law and also the Connecticut Common Law Article First, Sections I, IV, and V of the Connecticut’s state Constitution, as well as the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. While in 2018 the Hartford Courant won a five-year battle to obtain access to documents collected by the Connecticut State Police from the Lanza home following the mass murder, the documents available online include quite a few blocked-out pages that contained information related to Lanza’s ‘treatment.’ There has been much speculation that those pages contained important details from Lanza’s multiple psychiatrists, including information about the medications he was taking.
In December 2013, one year after the tragic killings, the State’s Attorney of Danbury, CT released it’s report, giving no conclusive motive for the act of violence, or any evidence that foresaw the tragedy. It has been well-documented that Lanza was treated by multiple psychiatrists, and placed on several psychiatric drugs. According to the book Newtown: An American Tragedy by Matthew Lysiak, Lanza’s mother tried different doctors, medications and schools, but nothing seemed to work for Adam. One of the medications he was prescribed was Lexapro, but that treatment was terminated because it made him dizzy, confused and seemed to impair his motor skills.
In addition, Nancy reported Celexa side effects to the Yale Child Study Center. In fact, The Yale Child Study Center never told Nancy to submit a MedWatch report to the FDA on the side effects, instead they told her she was non compliant for discontinuing the medication that caused the side effects. All the doctors who saw Lanza didn’t think his symptoms presented a predisposition for violence, or that he was a harm to himself or others.
What should be most concerning to the public, however, are the criminal charges and other serious allegations involving Dr. Paul Fox, a psychiatrist who played a big part in Lanza’s treatment. In 2016, Fox was arrested by the Department of Homeland Security and eventually was convicted of a felony. According to the state police report, the Yale Child Studies Center had evaluated and treated Lanza from October 2006 to February 2007. Lanza’s mother sent an email to Fox in February of 2007 requesting that Dr. Fox “take the lead role” in treatment Adam would be receiving at Yale. Just six days after that email was sent, treatment abruptly ended. After that, there has been no information made available to the public regarding what became of Lanza’s mental health treatment. Meanwhile, sweeping legislation has been passed to allocate millions of taxpayer funds to increase mental health services and gun control measures.
Alex Jones wasn’t the only one with unanswered questions about the Sandy Hook massacre. The failure of the State of Connecticut to conduct a proper investigation, along with its withholding of facts has led people to develop their own opinions and theories. The State’s poor police investigation should allow anyone to speculate at what really occurred. We do know in the aftermath that there was an FBI investigation into Newtown police corruption, called “Operation Juice Box” that included selling of drugs and long guns.
What’s really interesting is that no matter how Big Tech or the Mainstream Media try to make Alex Jones a “conspiracy theorist” on this matter, the more legitimate his questions actually become, and a worthy reason that he has millions of supporters of his show, InfoWars. Jones is one of the first to demand answers to real questions that the mainstream media has no problem leaving unanswered. He is one of the most censored Americans, having been banned from YouTube, Spotify, Facebook, Twitter and almost every other social media outlet. But that doesn’t seem to stop a large part of the American population from gravitating toward his message. While it’s understandable that many people don’t like what Jones has to say, he still has the right to say it, especially when no one else is challenging the authorities, investigation, and the legislation being passed on incomplete evidence.
And it appears that Jones is not the only one that is being punished for questioning the mishandling of the investigation of the Sandy Hook massacre. James Tracy, a former professor at Florida Atlantic University, was fired from his tenured position following his theory that the shooting was a “hoax” that he expressed on his blog. He recently lost his battle to sue FAU for wrongful termination, claiming he was just using his First Amendment rights. School officials claim that it was multiple acts of disobedience, not just simply the opinion he expressed on his blog, that led to his dismissal. AbleChild questions the timing of the school officials’ claims.
Furthermore, it’s important to note that the eight Sandy Hook families bringing the lawsuit against Alex Jones are just some of the families that lost children. Clearly the eight families have gotten involved in gun control efforts, which impacts everyone’s Constitutional rights. These selected families have entered the political system as public figures. In a Wired.com article entitled Win or Lose, the Alex Jones Lawsuit Will Help Redefine Free Speech, it is mentioned that Veronique De La Rosa and Lenny Pozner, the parents of Noah Pozner, a six-year-old killed in the Newtown attacks, can be considered “limited purpose public figures” which would set more limits on their grounds for defamation. De La Rosa has heavily supported the ban of the AR-15 (ArmaLite Rifle), coined incorrectly and deliberately by the mainstream media as “Assault Rifles” to bring negative connotations to the public’s mind. It is important to note here that the media ignored the long gun sales the Newtown Police were involved in under FBI “Juice Box” investigation, the same guns that were found at the Newtown massacre crime scene.
Lenny Pozner formed a non-profit organization that fights “misinformation” following the Newtown attacks. Who is the arbitrator of information on this event? Why does his organization fail to ask pertinent questions regarding the investigation and why does it attack those who do? It is rather shocking that these parents have no problem with limiting Constitutional Rights instead of calling to account the lack of transparency of the State Police investigation.
What the public can conclude from these inconsistencies and anomalies in the investigation and the media reports is that their health and safety is not prioritized. The fact that the State of Connecticut withheld critical data that protected both pharmaceutical companies and behavioral health facilities confirms this. For years, AbleChild has witnessed this rejection by the State of Connecticut of the public’s welfare and has no hesitation in wholeheartedly supporting Alex Jones’ freedom of speech. AbleChild will forge full speed ahead championing public safety.
