On May 6 former Florida State Trooper and school safety expert Wolfgang Halbig spoke before the Newtown Connecticut Board of Education, raising numerous questions on the official story of the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
Halbig was followed by University of Minnesota Professor and Veterans Today associate editor Jim Fetzer, Nevada-based attorney Day Williams, who is assisting Halbig with his public information requests, Infowars.com correspondent Dan Bidondi, and several others.

They came and they spoke, but their words fell flat with a respectful but thoroughly disgusted audience,” the Connecticut Post reports.
A dozen or so self-described skeptics of official accounts of the Sandy Hook school shooting appeared Tuesday night at the Board of Education meeting, each taking the allotted three minutes to address pointed questions to board members.
Wolfgang Halbig, the most prominent member of the group, raised questions about everything from the scale of police response that day to their refusal to accept his expert help in analyzing the event. He suggested that his legitimate efforts to get answers have been thwarted, and accused board members of toeing an official line …
“It’s a shame to see this circus come to town,” Newtown resident Jim Fitzpatrick responded, “and I’m offended by the people who have come, and these conspiracy theories. Newtown has conducted itself wonderfully.”
Fitzpatrick was given some applause by the audience that was swiftly silenced by board Chairwoman Debbie Leidlein.
Once public comments concluded, the group left the room and a police officer stood guard to assure an orderly exit.
According to the Post, earlier on May 6 several of Halbig’s supporters visited the Danbury offices of the United Way of Western Connecticut to request records of charitable donations collected on behalf of the Sandy Hook community in relation to the December 14 event. Chief Executive Officer Kim Morgan claims to have informed the group that all of the non-profit’s financial documents were available online.
“I would prefer not to give them a voice in the mainstream media, and to reassure the public that all of our financial documents are online and can be accessed by anyone,” Morgan said.
