    Jury finds Alex Jones should pay $45.2 million to parents of Sandy Hook victim

    A jury decided that ring-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones should pay the parents of a Sandy Hook victim $45.2 million in punitive damages, a day after the jury awarded the parents $4.1 in compensatory damages. Plaintiffs Scarlett Lewis and Neil Heslin lost their son Jesse in the 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut where 20 children and six adults were killed. They were seeking $150 million. CNN Senior Investigation Correspondent Drew Griffin joins AC360 to break down the jury’s decision.

    Plus, Senate Democrats are planning to begin debate on the economic bill after Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said she would “move forward” on the package. Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar tells AC360 what’s in the bill for Americans who may be skeptical.

    Jury finds Alex Jones caused $4.1 million in damages to two Sandy Hook parents

    Jury finds Alex Jones caused $4.1 million in damages to two Sandy Hook parents

    A jury found that right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones caused parents of a Sandy Hook victim a little more than $4 million in compensatory damages, far less than the $150 million they were asking for. Scarlett Lewis and Neil Haslin lost their son Jesse Lewis in the 2012 shooting that killed 20 children and six adults. Elizabeth Williamson of the New York Times is the author of “Sandy Hook: An American Tragedy and the Battle for Truth” and has been in court for the trial. She tells AC360 what the mood was like in the courtroom when the verdict was read.

    Plus, CNN Chief National Affairs Analyst Kasie Hunt joins AC360 after sitting down with Republican Rep. Liz Cheney for an exclusive interview. She talks to the vice chair of the January 6 House Select Committee about whether she thinks the former President should face criminal charges for his role in the insurrection.

    Kansas votes to protect abortion rights in state constitution

    President Biden signed an executive order aimed at safeguarding abortion just a day after CNN projected that voters in Kansas decided to reject a proposed amendment and keep the right to an abortion in their state’s constitution. Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren tells Anderson Cooper what the Kansas outcome says about where the issue is headed in the midterms and beyond.

    Plus, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis lost their son Jesse in the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting and won a default judgment against right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones earlier this year. They are asking the jury to award them $150 million in damages. CNN Senior Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin joins AC360 with the latest from court and why the cross-examination by the parents’ attorney caught Jones off guard.

Power as well as prestige,wealth become a politican. follow the money!

Anderson Cooper, people run for public office for the benefit of being able to help people as well as the causes the majority of the people desire. Instead they want a job they can stay in for centuries, get rich and forget why they were elected. Qualifications for a government job are as follows be a good liar, predigest, say something say you didn’t say what everyone heard you say be pompous enough to be willing to forget Democracy,after all you have the power and you belong to a cult, we have now become a third world country. I as well as many Americans are becoming ashamed of our leaders and government federal and state.Why are all politicians getting rich off of the tax payers?Excluding the few that are rich enough to buy their government jobs. I am a Democrat and can not ratify in my mind why two so called Democrats dictate to the masses. Suggestion term limits and not able to run for office again, if this were true our country might move forward, why get something done when you have the rest of eternity to think about it.Life is obtuse and values are lost over time, age is a curse not an attribute,as we age our mind regresses. Tell me your thoughts on the matters I've brought to your attention. Thank you Mark Bramlett.
