On Tuesday, May 6, 2013 a group of at least a dozen skeptics from around the country ventured to Newtown, CT in an attempt to get answers to some of
the questions which—it seems fair to say—many people in America (and the world) still have about the incident which occurred at the Sandy
Hook Elementary School on Friday, December 14, 2012.
A dozen or so self-described skeptics of official accounts of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting appeared Tuesday night at the Board of
Education meeting, each taking the allotted three minutes to address pointed questions to board members.
Wolfgang Halbig, the most prominent member of the group, raised questions about everything from the scale of police response that day to their refusal
to accept his expert help in analyzing the event. He suggested that his legitimate efforts to get answers have been thwarted, and accused board
members of toeing an official line.
“Board members, these are your children,” Halbig said. “We want answers. We want truth.”
The group, from what I can tell, appeared to conduct themselves respectfully. Footage of their speeches made during the local public participation
section of the Board of Education meeting at the Newtown Municipal Center Council Chambers Tuesday evening, is available for viewing at
the town's website (links below).
For their part, the town's Board of Selectmen and local law enforcement, appeared to be on heightened alert due to their “unwanted guests”. The
Board of Selectmen kept the front doors to the building locked until the meeting began, while they themselves entered through the back door. The
Newtown Police Department could be heard on the police scanner frequently referring to the group as “the visitors” throughout the day.
Several residents even phoned the police when cars with out-of-state license plates tags were spotted...
The group apparently brought an attorney with them, which was probably a good idea.
Further info on the trip will be forthcoming.

An intriguing comment made by a man at the school board meeting at 31:43†, shortly after Wolfgang Halbig and the group leave
“I think it's … ahem … important that when we do meet, regarding ‘that’ … that we …
(unintelligible)..someone..become increasingly aware of any increased ... how do I want to say this? Amount … of student contact,
based on the tragedy. I think its key … and I bet you here … that their positions … are overflowing.”

How sad. 'Skeptics' need to leave the good people of Sandy Hook alone. They don't need a bunch of obsessed people showing up demanding to see police
reports on dead children or photos or whatever else. Those Sandy Hook people suffered an unimaginable tragedy. Leave them alone!

You think people with honest questions on a situation that is a tragedy should silence themselves and stop asking questions? Even if they are experts
in safety or have legitimate questions?
Sandy Hook was truly a tragedy and heart breaking. But you are saying that alone means questions should be buried and never asked? I find that
I am from CT. The tragedy caused much suffering nationwide. But there are questions that seem very legitimate and I hope these "skeptics" keep
asking them. Because much of that day still fails to make sense.

The parents of the dead children are satisfied. And the amount of tin foil hat version of 'conspiracies' with Sandy Hook is absurd. There are
people running around screaming that the families are all in on a conspiracy and that they got paid off with free houses. There are people claiming
that there are no dead children. There are people claiming that the story of Sandy Hook came out BEFORE the tragedy. (and YES, those type of posts
have been seen here in great number - look at the LOL forum). There are a lot of silly stupid stories that people eat up. The bottom line, the
parents of the dead children are satisfied so a bunch of arm chair 'detectives' from the internet should just leave the families and the people of
Sandy Hook alone.
I am from CT.
So? I was born and raised in Connecticut. (SUFFIELD).
I have relatives who were teachers one town over from this.
They know people who went through the tragedy.

The topic of this thread is the board meeting which was attented by a group of skeptics asking legit questions.
Yes .. and I repeat ... 'skeptics from across the country' should leave the people of Sandy Hook alone. The people of that town are satisfied. The
parents of the dead are satisfied. The "skeptics from around the country" should go back to whatever corner of the country they came from. That's
my opinion on the matter. You have yours. I have mine.
