Neil Heslin will be speaking at the panel today to express his support of a ban on assault rifles.
WASHINGTON —Neil Heslin says it’s all about his slain son, Jesse.
Heslin, a 50-year-old construction worker, says he normally pays little attention to politics. But he was yanked painfully into the middle of the nation’s gun debate last December, when his 6-year-old son, Jesse, along with 19 other first-graders and six educators, was shot dead at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.
“It’s a burden, it’s more than a burden on me,” Heslin said in an interview Tuesday as he and three dozen others — including other Newtown families and relatives of other mass shooting victims — arrived in Washington for two days of lobbying lawmakers. “But I have to do it for my little boy.” (link)
It’s not surprising that we’re going to hear from Heslin, but I noticed that the ER doctor who allegedly treated the 3 victims that day is also scheduled to speak. His name is Dr. William Begg and I find it incredible that he was never interviewed about his experience that day, who he actually treated that day and what were the circumstances and details about two of the victims that allegedly were pronounced dead at the hospital. We don’t even know their names.
The stories about what happened that day are all over the place. Some kids escaped, some were found safe in a closet, a little girl ran out with blood all over her. Was she not taken to the hospital? Wouldn’t one expect that?
We should have details about which kids were taken to the hospital – interviews with the EMT workers who tried to save them, interviews with the medical staff but we have nothing. Instead we have senate hearings and now we’ll hear from the mysterious doctor who allegedly treated the victims and we’ll hear him cry again as he did at the Connecticut hearing on gun control and mental illness.
I tried to find a history on the doctor but there isn’t much available. He claims that he’s been an ER physician at Danbury hospital for 20 years but his Linked In profile indicates that he’s been there for a short time.
Maybe he neglected to include his 20 years of experience here? Why would anyone do that? I tried to search for information on him based on Johns Hopkins and nothing shows up there. I found a couple of articles that date back to around 2010. He worked on legislation for underage drinking laws with Representative Frey who, if you remember is also involved in the Sandy Hook story. His sister allegedly drove 5 kids to the police station that morning because they fled Soto’s classroom. (article).
Is anyone else bothered by the fact that we never heard from this doctor to help us understand the facts about what happened that day? Who was even treated at the hospital? Who was that woman on the stretcher? But he’s in the spotlight now to speak about gun control and of course mental health, the same meme being used by everyone involved in this enormous hoax.
Here’s his speech at the Connecticut gun control hearing. I expect today will be more of the same and the emotions will be used to push the agenda through. This is unacceptable.
