MYSTIC, CT (MAY 13, 2014) — A playground dedicated to one of the victims of the Sandy Hook school massacre was vandalized by ‘truthers’ who claim the shooting never took place.

The playground was put up in honor of seven-year-old Grace McDonnell after the shooting. Last Tuesday, a vinyl sign weighing 50 pounds was stolen from that playground. The sign featured a peace symbol that was based on one of the little girl’s drawing.

Grace’s mom found out about the theft after a man claiming to have stolen the sign called her. Television stations in the area say the alleged sign-stealer told her mom that he took the sign because he believes the school shooting was a hoax. He also told her that her daughter never existed.

20 students and six adult staff members were shot by Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut in December 2012.

According to published reports, this small group of  ‘truthers‘ allege the shooting never occurred or was part of a ‘false flag’ operation designed to open the door to the confiscation of all guns by the government. The group lists a number of theories about what actually happened but the Huffington Post says most of them can be proven false.

The Grace McDonnell Playground was opened in April and is one of 26 being built across Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey in memory of the victims. A spokeswoman for the foundation responsible for building the playgrounds says a replacement sign has been ordered.

The theft at the playground comes just days after vandals painted graffiti at a playground dedicated to another Newtown victim, Anna Grace Marquez-Greene.

Police are still investigating both incidents.

    Looking at all the anomalies, inconsistencies and coincidences surrounding the Sandy Hook shooting, I would have to admit that it walks, talks, and looks like a hoax. And that bizarre McDonnell interview certainly didn't help to sway my opinion. Just bizarre.

    As an historian of REAL conspiracies, from "Remember the Maine" to the "sneak attack" on Pearl Harbor, from Operation Northwoods to the Kennedy and King assassinations and the "New Pearl Harbor" 9/11 false-flag event, I am disgusted that the so-called "truth movement" has discredited itself with the patently FALSE claims of conspiracy around the Sandy Hook school rampage shooting.

    I have been a volunteer firefighter, off and on, for 30 years, a volunteer EMT for 20 years, a Wilderness EMS Instructor and an ambulance training officer, a technical rope rescue instructor for 14 years (including mountain rescue, ice rescue, fast-water rescue, cave rescue, and industrial rescue), a Wilderness Search & Rescue technician and instructor for 10 years, a municipal Emergency Management Coordinator during Y2K in a small town next to a nuclear power plant and below a hydroelectric dam, and a Critical Incident Stress counselor. I have training and experience in mass-casualty events and triage, and helped train doctors, nurses and paramedics as well as a FEMA urban search & rescue team.

    No one with any real experience in mass-casualty events would question the response or the investigation. Neither were without fault, but both were as good as could be expected under the circumstances. That the horrific tragedy actually occurred cannot be doubted except by the willfully blind, the intellectually deficient, or those with ulterior motives.
