Pay up, pig.

Aug 5 (Reuters) – U.S. conspiracy theorist Alex Jones must pay the parents of a 6-year-old boy killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre $45.2 million in punitive damages – on top of $4.1 million in compensatory damages already awarded – for falsely claiming the shooting was a hoax, a Texas jury decided on Friday.

Update: In retrospect, using his giant ass megaphone (no the hyphen isn’t missing) to insult the people who would decide his fate might not have been the best idea Jones has ever had.

Update II: Commentarion Damon Poeter has composed a wee tune to commemorate the occasion. I do like the looks of it.
