Ah, the webs we weave.
A little over a year ago a woman named Lucy Richards sent four messages to Florida resident Lenny Pozner. Two were emails, the other two voice mails. None of them were what you'd call friendly.
One message said, "You gonna die, death is coming to you real soon." Another read, "Look behind you it is death. And there's nothing you can do about it."
Mr. Pozner hadn't lived in Florida long. His previous address was located in Newtown, CT where his six year old son, Noah attended Sandy Hook Elementary school. Noah was one of 20 students murdered by Adam Lanza on December 14, 2014.
At least that's what those of us with functioning brains know. Lucy Richards, on the other hand, saw things differently. After her arrest she told Florida authorities she was one of the many out there who believe the Sandy Hook nightmare was a false flag operation. In other words, the entire shooting did not occur, Noah Pozner never existed, and his father, Lenny--or whatever his name really might be--was and is, what's known in the trade as, a "crisis actor."
By last January it had become clear to her the only way to stop such an unrepentant anti gun shill like Lenny Pozner was to threaten his life.
She was charged with four counts of, "transmission of a threat to injure." Richards pleaded not guilty. While awaiting trial she was out on $25,000 bond, banned from visiting, or contributing to conspiracy theory web sites, and from contacting Pozner, or anyone else involved with the Sandy Hook shooting.
Then she got a public defender. He worked out a plea bargain with the prosecution which would get her off with probation and a period of house arrest as opposed to possibly five years of hard time on each charge. The kicker was, in order to secure the deal, she had show up today in U.S. District Court and plead guilty to a single count. You know, admit she had committed a crime.
As we all understand, these things are never that easy. Especially when you are saying to someone like Lucy Richards you'll have to admit you were wrong. Apparently doing just that didn't appeal to her ego. The Guardian is reporting she called her attorney this morning and told him she wasn't going to show up. She wouldn't tell him why. When Judge James Cohn was informed he immediately issued a warrant for her arrest and ordered her jailed without bond once she is picked up.
There is no word regarding Lucy Richards' current location. Perhaps she has taken it on the lam to Austin, TX and is seeking sanctuary in the studios of Alex Jones, the king of all conspiracy theories.
Jones' "Info Wars" broadcasts have frequently featured guests who believe exactly what Lucy Richards does--that Sandy Hook was faked so the government would have an excuse to confiscate every gun ever made. However, Jones himself has always hedged his final decision on what exactly happened that terrible December day in Newtown.
This reluctance to come down firmly on the side of those who claim the shooting was faked has caused him to be condemned in some conspiracy circles. In others he is considered just another part of the problem. Andrew Anglin, founder of the neo-Nazi site, "Daily Stormer," refers to him as a, "Zionist millionaire."
Other conspiracy sites have come to the conclusion Alex Jones, like Noah Pozner, doesn't exist at all. They contend he is a character created by stand up comic, Bill Hicks. The theory goes that Hicks faked his death, caused by pancreatic cancer, in 1994 and came up with the persona of Alex Jones. The reasons for the deception are varied and somewhat vague, but when dealing with this Nuevo Twilight Zone one should never expect clarity.
No matter what the case, our Lucy is still out there, somewhere. When last seen in public she was using a walker and wheel chair while claiming to be disabled. She is in her late 50's and presumably remains really pissed off at Lenny Pozner.
Well, what do you expect? In this brave new world anyone who gives up the fight and admits wrong instantly becomes part of the conspiracy--just another paid crisis actor. Obviously such an accusation is too much for Lucy Richards to bear.
Indeed, now it's just a matter of time before we see how the whole martyrdom thing works out for her.
The latest odds are it won't go well, but, hey, when it comes to these cranks, you never know for sure.
