Aurora Theater Shooting Victims Being Harassed, Conspiracy Theorists

Prosecutors in the Aurora theater shooting case have re-iterated their request that victims' names be redacted from court documents, saying that victims and their families continue to suffer harassment from conspiracy theorists.

The most recent request was made in a filing dated Tuesday and later made public on the court's website. In the filing signed by Lisa Teesch-Maguire, the prosecution team's victims' rights specialists prosecutors say that victims "have expressed concerns for their privacy, and personal safety." Some victims are key witnesses in the case, the filing states.

"The District Attorney's Office is concerned that the release of these Victim(s)' name in the public Court file will adversely affect the administration of justice in this case," Teesch-Maguire writes.

Since the July 20 shooting that killed 12 and injured 58 by gunfire, victims and their families have been subject to harassment online and in person from conspiracy theorists. At least one victim and one witness have been impersonated in motions purportedly filed in their name. At least one blog questioning the truth of the shooting has posted victims' personal information and photos from Facebook.

1. I really wish someone would Jay and Silent Bob any asshole who would do something like this

Not hurt them just scare them enough to make them realize the error of their ways. Of maybe Anonymous could hack the shit out of their computers and plant child porn and like bank statements that say they are laundering money or something. I can not think of any other way to get it through America's thick head that behavior like this is not right.

2. These conspiracy theorists need a good ass kicking. Stop harassing the victims!

They've been through enough already. Last thing they need is a group of crazy fucking NRA brainwashed assholes telling them these shootings didn't happen. This is wrong on so many levels.
