ANATOMY OF TERROR The Oslo, Norway attack 2011  Part 1 This episode of 'Stop The Killing' investigates the devastating 2011 Norway attacks, the deadliest mass shooting ever reported. We discuss the comprehensive planning involved, involving both a car bomb near the executive government quarters that killed 8 people and injured 209 in Oslo, followed by an active shooting on a youth camp on an island nearby that resulted in the killing of 69 people, mostly teenagers. The perpetrator, motivated by extremist right-wing beliefs, was able to execute his plan with chilling precision due to extensive pre-meditation and deceptive tactics.

FROM MASS SHOOTING TO MASS DECEPTION  The Case of Alex Jones and the Sandy Hook Families The podcast episode delves into the continuation of the legal battle between the Sandy Hook families and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who spread false theories that the horrific Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax. Despite being sued and ordered to pay a massive $1.5 billion judgment by the court, Jones has avoided this payment using bankruptcy claims and continues to generate significant wealth through his media company. The Sandy Hook families have since reduced their demand to $85 million, but Jones still refuses to pay, all while continuing to earn substantially from his conspiracy theory-based venture. The episode explores the manipulation and harm caused by Jones' actions and the distressing reality of these families who have been relentlessly harassed and lied about for a decade.
