Sandy Hook ‘Truther’ Pleads for Mercy, Says Harassing Calls to Grieving School Officials Were ‘Just Words’
A Connecticut man who believes that the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings were a government staged conspiracy has been arrested for repeatedly harassing staffers at the school.
On Tuesday, police arrested 30-year-old Timothy Rogalski after he made numerous threatening phone calls to the school where 26 children and adults were killed.
Rogalski is reportedly a Sandy Hook “truther” – conspiracy theorists who believe that the 2012 killings weren’t carried out by Adam Lanza but actually a hoax staged by the government to disarm Americans to pave the way for a socialist world government. Or something.
The arrest came after Rogalski left four threatening messages on the school’s answering machine.
The calls began when Rogalski pretended to be a father who wanted to enroll his child in the school.
“I just wanted to make sure that there was going to be no fake shooting on the day that I enrolled him,” Rogalski told the school, according to court records. “I just wanted to clarify that he wouldn’t get shot by a fake Adam Lanza.”
Rogalski also asked for Kaitlin Roig, a teacher who survived the attack, to be his son’s teacher and left a message for principal Dawn Hochsprung, who was killed in the attack.
When he saw a judge on Wednesday, however, Rogalski insisted he was “just talking.”
“I know I may have offended people,” Rogalski told the judge. “But they were words, and I made no threats. I wasn’t going to do anything.”
Rogalski is being held on $50,000 bond and is charged with harassment.
