In light of all the wild conspiracy theories floating around the Internet about the Newtown shooting, the father of a Sandy Hook Elementary first grader called into Glenn Beck’s radio program on Wednesday to thoroughly debunk the theory that the shooting never actually happened. In a powerful interview, the father, “Pete,” recounted the horrific events of that morning and described how it felt not being able to immediately rescue his young son.
After killing his mother, a deranged shooter opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary, killing 20 children and six school staffers in December. For some reason, Newtown “truthers” have promoted the idea that the shooting was staged and it never really happened, an idea that the father said makes him want to throw up.
“It’s like an unimaginable way to even look at a tragedy or horrific event. I don’t even understand it,” Pete told Beck on the radio.
