This is a rather chilling example of authoritarianism.  A spokesman for the Connecticut State Police threatened to investigate and arrest people spreading false information on the Sandy Hook shooting.  Here is the video, via Steve Piotrowski’s 1776-R.  

This is chilling for three reasons:

1.  People can be wrong, and post things that they think are true.  Perhaps people were just posting what they saw on one of the alphabet networks?  Because, quite frankly, they have been reporting incorrect information all the time.

2.  What happens when facts don’t fit the narrative, and are discarded?  There are plenty of times, as of late, where information has been ignored or denied.  Will people reporting inconvenient truths be “investigated?”

3.  Steve Piotrowski points out another:

And with the N.D.A.A. in effect, American citizens can now be locked up indefinitely without a trial for just about any reason including making innocent facebook posts.

I get that there is frustration with false information being disseminated.  After all, I am  Conservative, and MSNBC routinely makes it up as they go along.  But, I’ve never done anything more threatening to them than chuckle warmly when I post about their sub-basement  ratings.

Steve gives some contact information…

OK, I don’t think we need to mention this, but all the same, don’t make threats or be disrespectful.  We are not liberals, and there is no need to act like them.  After all, we’re the good guys!
