Aurora theater shooting victims harassed by conspiracy theorists

Aurora theater shooting victims harassed by conspiracy theorists
By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News | The Lookout 3 hrs ago.

Some survivors of the mass shooting in the Aurora, Colo., movie theater last year have been "relentlessly" harassed by conspiracy theorists who believe the shooting never happened, according to a court document.

In a court filing this week, Deputy District Attorney George Brauchler wrote that "proponents of purported 'conspiracies' ... have contacted victims in this case, some of whom have even gone so far as to recruit other members of the public to contact the victims and to publicly post maps with the home addresses and phone numbers of the victims on various social media sites."

The targeted people have expressed concerns about their "privacy and personal safety," the district attorney continued.

Lawyers for shooting suspect James Holmes have asked the Arapahoe County judge for a gag order preventing any materials in the case from being given to the press, arguing that doing so could prejudice a jury. The district attorney wants the gag order lifted, but asked in the filing that victims' names be censored out so they can avoid further harassment. The judge has yet to rule on whether or not to lift the gag order.

3. Since WBC is

circling the bowl, this is their replacement it would seem. There needs to be some kind of something to make this sort of activity punishable in some way. This set of tactics is getting out of hand and is going to cause something ugly soon, I suspect.

Please get these people into mental asylums where they belong.

The victims should sue the pants off their harassers...that is the only thing the loonies understand...

He's the one stirring up this s***.

19. Good idea!

I'd say cancel their phone service, too, and make it such that the only phones they're allowed to have are ones that can only call 911.

18. Same group of people that think Sandy Hook never happened too

There is some photo floating about where they swear the same woman is at both Aurora and Newton--and that proves it was all theatre (to them).

21. that should read "relentlessly terrorized"

and the Patriot Act needs to be brought to bear on those domestic terrorists.

23. God. These people need to be locked up.

They should not be allowed to run free in society.
I wish they'd hurry up and establish their south American Jim Jones Tea Party fortress and lock themselves away from the world and reality.
