Conspiracy Theories

Sandy Hook ‘truther’ begs judge for mercy after being arrested for harassment

Sandy Hook truthers have embarked on a bizarre campaign of harassment, which includes calling the parents of the deceased, accusing them of being participants in the hoax. But now, one of these intellectual troglodytes is getting held accountable for his actions, and he’s 30 year-old Timothy Rogalski.

Conspiracy kooks are infuriating. Their insane method of reasoning has become a viral phenomenon, especially after the rise of the Internet. But none have been more despicable and brazen than the Sandy Hook truthers: folks who are convinced the tragic killing of 20 children and 6 staff at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut was all an elaborate hoax.

Sandy Hook truthers have embarked on a bizarre campaign of harassment, which includes calling the parents of the deceased, accusing them of being participants in the hoax. But now, one of these intellectual troglodytes is getting held accountable for his actions, and he’s 30 year-old Timothy Rogalski.

Monroe Police Dept.

From WFSB News:

The staff of the school, which is located in Monroe, said a man left four disturbing messages on the school’s answering machine accusing them of fabricating the shooting that left 26 students and staff dead on Dec. 14, 2012.

He called again later Tuesday morning and allegedly spoke with an administrative assistant at the school.

Police said they were able to trace the calls back to Rogalski. He was then arrested at his home in Wallingford.

He originally used his father’s name in the first call and said he wanted to enroll a child.

“I just wanted to make sure that there was going to be no fake shooting on the day that I enrolled him,” Rogalski said according to court records. “I just wanted to clarify that he wouldn’t get shot by a fake Adam Lanza.”

“I know I may have offended people, but they were words, and I made no threats. I wasn’t going to do anything,” Rogalski said to the court.

According to police, Rogalski called the school again and told a secretary his daughter would be absent. When the secretary asked for a name, he allegedly gave the name of Dawn Hochsprung, the principal who was killed in the shooting. The secretary then hung up the phone.

Rogalski is being held on $50,000 bond.

    what a despicable asshole but what does that say about free speech, however horrilble that speech may be. I wish we could arrest all of the lying jerks on Faux News along with Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck, Levin, Jones, Savage, etc.
    A few politicians too like Ted Cruz come to mind. Lock ’em up. They are poisoning people’s minds that are not smart enough to figure it out themselves.

    Jeb, I couldn’t agree with you more! All of the Politicians, Religious Leaders, Talking Heads and media people who stir people up with lies and fear for their selfish gain should be put in front of a firing squad for treason! They’re all despicable, self centered monsters who don’t care how their words and actions hurt society and this country, as long as they get what they want!
    They truly make me sick and disgusted!

    “free speech” means the government will not curtail your right to speak. it says nothing about the consequences of said speech.

    When you communicate to create terror in people you are terrorizing. Just jail the creep, and the rest will stop.

    What does u it say about free speech? It says the government can’t stop you from being a total dick, but your words … just like your actions don’t come with impunity.

    not surprising, these freaks hate the president so much, and are scared to deaththat someone might make them wait a few hours before they can fondle a gun.

    What’s the difference between this hateful lunacy and Westboro Baptist Church picketing funerals? That is apparently protected free speech but this isn’t. Why?

    Yes,your right,free space doesn’t mean you can repeatedly tell someone their kids deserve to die or any harassment directed at individuals.

    Westboro Baptist Church’s picket lines are free speech because they happen on public sidewalks at events that are matters of public interest.

    What Rogalski has done, unwanted person to person communications, is a minor crime in most jurisdictions, but seldom prosecuted. Given that he comes across as unhinged in connection with an in-school violence event and he’s in the same state, it’s no surprise they are throwing the book at him.

    I have my own crop of truthers like this guy, thanks to political consulting I did during the 2010 and 2012 election cycles. They got so bad I created a fake organization, Conspiracy Brokers, and pranked the heck out of them for a couple of years. There are just a couple left who are really delusional and won’t leave me alone, but most of them got tired of being gamed and wandered off in 2013/2014.

    You can bet that he is single, Christian, has a low paying job, and lives with his parents! I see this anger all the time from these losers who are angry that they have nothing-no real job, no family of their own, no real possessions!! Another paranoid delusional lunatic!!

    Jeb, you are so right especially about these right wing nut jerks who poison peoples minds that follow them like sheep. Well said.

    Michelle, you are probably right.

    This is about harassment, not free speech and not the media. This is about the justice system making it right for the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre by holding this criminal accountable.

    My opinion is that it SHOULD be illegal to call what you’re doing NEWS when it is mostly lies or opinions.

    I hope he is prosecuted to the full extent of the law and receives the stiffest sentence and fine. Hopefully there will be more arrests.

    Throw the book at him ! What’ll he get 3 months ? He deserves ’em. And while you’re at it throw the book at Alex Jones for inciting a riot across state lines.

  26. Joe Gayda

    April 12, 2015 at 2:02 pm

    Free speech protects Alex Jones and others who profit from encouraging people to hold these beliefs. It would allow Mr. Rogalski a soapbox in the park. But it doesn’t require anyone to listen to him, or interact with him. People at work at any public office can’t just not answer their phones. So he is forcing them to listen to him, and forcing them to interact. And that is harassment. It is like when the tea guys made a point of disrupting the attempts of congressmen to meet with constituents, disruption is the point.

    Democratization of opinion is highly overrated sometimes. There is such a thing as objective fact, and denying fact should carry harsher consequences — if not legally than in the court of public opinion. Part of what’s wrong in politics is treating opinions as valid when they don’t have a shred of credibility. Conspiracy theorists and religious nuts are the absolute worst in this regard. If your position is unprovable beyond a reasonable doubt, STFU!

    There is such a thing a freedom of speech, but it shouldn’t be confused with freedom from the consequences of your speech.

    No. Neckbeard deserves to do community service and tending the grave sites. Then he can go home and fondle his guns .

    If everyone did that we’d never have found out that jfk was killed by his peers and the elite. Never have found out 9/11 was an inside job. Never found out gmos, flu shots, chemtrails etc was unhealthy. Never found real cures for cancer. Never found out the earth wasn’t flat. etc etc etc etc. So maybe you should STFU!

    I think everybody who expresses an opinion of any kind, on any subject ought to be arrested, convicted of heresy and imprisoned! So there!

    certainly like your web-site but you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the reality then again I’ll certainly come back again.

    Mark – you are 100% on the money. I realised that being primal would be a whole bunch easier working from home and I sought out a job that would allow me to do that.
