Well you can untwist your panties because no laws have been changed. So if you weren't frigtened last year there's no reason to be frightened now. People have the same rights and obligations that they had last year. So were you frightened last year too? If not, why not?

And it is disingenuous of you to bring up in this thread people having different opinions or being mistaken. Defamation laws have been around for a long time. Are you claiming you just found out about them now? If you don't understand them, wikipedia is free for you to access, and you can do it with one hand while you are untwisting your pants.

The guy we are talking about in this thread is the worst kind of trash. Calling families who have just lost their children forever liars. How does he live with himself? I just can't imagine.

For those who are interested in following this case, here's the Petition (what we would call a 'Statement of Claim') outlining the allegations:

There's been a new ruling that lets some of the plaintiffs in the suits against Alex Jones have a look at the financial info in his InfoWars website.
