A Texas jury on Thursday ordered conspiracy theorist Alex Jones to pay more than $4 million in compensatory damages to the parents of a 6-year-old boy who was killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, marking the first time the Infowars host has been held financially liable for repeatedly claiming the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history was a hoax.

The Austin jury must still decide how much the Infowars host must pay in punitive damages to Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose son Jesse Lewis was among the 20 children and six educators who were killed in the 2012 attack in Newtown, Connecticut.

    1. Are you joking ? Some guy talking about an event didn’t cause anyone pain . You’re a clown . The supposed shooter is only to blame

    2. @Bill Harford he didn’t just talk about it, he up and said these parents whose kids were just murdered were crisis actors, and that they’re a bunch of liars. These people were harassed by Alex’s fanbase because he dropped their information.

    3. @Reptiles are cool Your example of not talking about something was literally him saying something . Furthermore if you can show me one photo or video of Adam Lanza there that day I’ll shut up .

    4. @Bill Harford just had a stroke trying to read what you just wrote can you rewrite that in a different way?

  1. I love the lack of any expression from the judge. Like she’s the item checker as you are leaving Costco. Yup… looks correct to me…

    1. There is a difference, he really wasn’t bullshitting. You think that kid that went on a rampage in CO, just did it off the cuff?

  2. LOL @ the “but mah first amendment” folks who clearly don’t remember anything from high school government class.

    1. Speculation is not slander, even if you offend someone. This is a political show trial by the ruling class to crush their political enemies.

    1. Freedom of Speech does not involve denying and hurting parents of very young slain students at school does it? The Sandy Hook changed teachers, parents and students lives in my state of Connecticut.

  3. Unfortunately when you follow Maritime law, non of the entities that are owned by the “Corporation” have any rights.
