one has to consider why tax payers would need something as inane as simple curiosity satisfied
You do NOT have the right to know details of ongoing investigations

Not another thread complaining about alternative thinkers who question official stories.
One of these days, people will understand that we're necessary.
The government wants us to know with their CCTVs and security methods that they're watching us. We're simply letting them know that we're watching them.
Alternative thinkers are only doing what we're told to do by Homeland Security: See something, say something.
Well, we're seeing things that don't make sense and we're talking about it.
I'd love to believe what the officials say, but through their past words and actions, the trust just isn't there anymore.

I thought this place was to discuss outlandish theories without fear of any kind of hostility,
but now it's feeling more and more like the place to go to laugh at those people specifically.
I'm gone if it keeps up.

"This place" as many of us like to consider the community it represents, is a place to discuss ALL sides....that is *ALL* sides of an issue. Not to be called Shill's, Disinformation agents, officers or agents of a Government or Security Service or outright morons if we don't "get it" or tow the company line of speculation in just the right way.
I think it's this impression people seem to have that ATS is dedicated to ANY one side or one position of ANYTHING that is part of the whole problem.
Everyone has their right to throw out their ideas, theories and best guesses ....when it isn't presented as fact so certain that they have a right to stomp other people who don't 100% agree with it.
As far as leaving? Wow.... Yeah... I guess it is about that these days.
Different reasons for different people ...but the very side you're presenting has driven off more leading contributors here I know by name than any "restriction" on the most wild, outlandish and pure seat of the pants speculating one can imagine.
Different strokes for different folks ....as long as all respect the fact differences can exist and SHOULD exist, IMO.

I see what you're saying, but I believe the main issue being pushed is that alternative thinkers believe that there are certain SUSPECTS that need to be questioned by the authorities. I don't believe that anyone is stating that someone is IN FACT a terrorist or the guilty party, but simply bringing attention to someone they find to be suspicious in nature.
There were a lot of unanswered questions with Sandy Hook. For example, who was the man in cuffs that was placed in the front of the patrol car? Why isn't the media following up on this and reporting on it?
Nowhere does it say we must agree with what the authorities have declared is an open and shut case. The media has placed themselves in the position where the public expects answers from them. They need to do their job by following up on details and conducting the type of investigative reporting that Americans can be proud of by being thorough and unbiased. Journalism today is essentially dead. It's controlled by the few to dictate to the many.
