Conspiracy theories regarding the tragic Sandy Hook shooting abound the internet. James Tracy, a communications professor at Florida Atlantic University known for his conspiracy theories (He believes Oklahoma City bombing and 9-11 were both staged), has stirred up quite another one by saying in his blog that the Sandy Hook shooting may have been staged.
He claims that the media were responsible for keeping out evidence of a second shooter. During an interview, he said he believes the deaths at Sandy Hook may have resulted from a training exercise. "Was this to a certain degree constructed?" he said. "Was this a drill?” "Something most likely took place," he said. "One is left with the impression that a real tragedy took place." But, he added, he has not seen bodies, or photos of bodies."Overall, I'm saying the public needs more information to assess what took place. We don't have that. And when the media and the public don't have that, various sorts of ideas can arise."
Professor Tracy also feels it is not unlikely that the Obama administration had employed"crisis actors" in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event's true purpose: gun control.
"While it sounds like an outrageous claim, one is left to inquire whether the Sandy Hook shooting ever took place — at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation's news media have described," he writes in his post.
What he says sounds ludicrous but is it possible that it may just be food for thought?
