We pray for justice for this young man and his family. We also pray for good common sense and decency to prevail in this case. Help this case restore boundaries on harming others and false reporting.

Kentucky lawmakers advanced a bill that would make “doxing”—the deliberate broadcasting of others’ personal information online—a crime if done against anyone under the age of 18. At the same time, the father of Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann delivered a powerful testimony.

Weeks after student Nicholas Sandmann spoke out on the viral encounter with a Native American protester, a Kentucky Senate committee voted 8 to 3 to advance the proposed Senate Bill 240 on March 6. 

If the bill—which still needs approval from the Senate, House, and the governor—becomes law, it would make anyone publishing a minor’s personal information a misdemeanor. Such information could include addresses of the home or school attended by the victim that could be used to intentionally harass, abuse, or threaten the target. 

“My son, Nicholas Sandmann, was the victim of the most sensational Twitter attack on a minor child in the history of the internet,” Ted Sandmann, the father of the student said in an emotional testimony.

Ted Sandmann, who testified in support of the bill, said his son became the victim of a barrage of online attacks after he was wrongly accused of being disrespectful to Native American protester Nathan Phillips and was vilified by the media as a racist. Later, footage of the full encounter was released.

“The evidence has proven all of the allegations against my son to be untrue,” Ted Sandmann said. “I believe legislation to criminalize the worst tendencies of the Twitter mob is vital to restoring public discourse.”

“It shows how far out-of-control social media has become,” he added.

Sandman’s family attorney, Todd McMurtry testified as well, delivering a sharp rebuke against social media companies that have come under fire for failing to combat abuse on their platforms. The word “doxing” was extracted from docs, an abbreviation for documents. 

“There are no brakes on Twitter,” said McMurtry. “Twitter itself barely has the capacity to monitor its own activity. To put some weight back on the citizens so that they can help fight back when they are doxed would be great to make up for the fact that Twitter barely does anything.”

It’s uncertain if the bill will pass as there are just days left in the legislative session before they adjourn for the year. The Kentucky Senate committee easily approved the bill despite some concerns about free speech.

“We’re talking about minors,” McMurtry said. “We can’t let the internet be a wild environment where we can abuse minors at will.”

Defamation Lawsuit

Lawyers for Nicholas Sandmann last month sued The Washington Post for $250 million in damages.

“Lin Wood and Todd McMurtry filed their first lawsuit on behalf of Nicholas Sandmann against The Washington Post,” the statement of claim announced on Feb. 19.

The claim stated that Lin and Todd will seek $250 million in both compensatory and punitive damages “for the harm so many have done to the Sandmann family.”

Lawyers on Feb. 1 also sent letters to more than 50 people and companies, including The New York Times, CNN, The Guardian, and NPR, as well as celebrities such as Bill Maher, Kathy Griffin, Jim Carrey, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). The letters urged the recipients to preserve records, including electronic ones, related to the incident.

McMurtry predicted that people will end up behind bars for their misleading or false comments.

“I think some people are going to be arrested,” he told The Epoch Times in a Feb. 3 phone call. “That’s what I’ve been told from reliable sources, from the police investigators.”

  1. I pray that good things will come of this lawsuit. I thank God that He orchestrated these events to carry out His Will. I pray we protect minors but also others from doxing. We don’t need people taking the law into their own hands. Trial by Twitter is
    just Satan using people’s foolishness and overheated emotions
    to cause more chaos and violence in our country. God, help the message get out that people need to calm down and seek the peace of Jesus. In His Name, Amen.
