Attention: All Sandy Hook Hoaxers to the Office Please!

On the one year anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre and one year after the victims were laid to rest, can we also bury these hateful conspiracy theories and hoax accusations that are still being broadcasted as recently as today?

9146424_origAlthough I do sympathize with people who buy into these theories because of the over- zealous efforts to maintain privacy, that’s as far as my sympathies go.

We have viewed all the most popular of these YouTube videos and internet articles talking conspiracy with such titles as “Sandy Hoax School”, “Sandy Hook Line and Sinker” and “Unraveled in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Dimensions.

Please be advised, we have had enough of this nonsense, already. You are now under detention.

Here are some of the most citied reasons for thinking that what happened on December 14th, 2012, didn’t really happen:

SANDY-HOOK-ELEMENTARY-VICTIMS-730x365

Posts and Reports Before the Attack

1) Face book posts, tweets, etc. predate the tragedy. Time zones and the way these social media sites archive information and update previous articles and posts are the reason why there are these time differences. This is whypeople seemed to be discussing the tragedy “before it happened”, etc.

Adam Lanza’s death certificate reads December 13th. There is a lot of red tape to correct such an error. If this was a carefully designed hoax, this mistake would have never been made.

No Visibly Injured Victims

2) Only 3 injured were rushed to the hospital, the 26 dead were not. This speaks for itself.

Out of sensitivity to the victim’s families and the town, the victims were taken out under the cover of darkness after the crime scene had been processed.

The Empty Triage Area

3) There were no injured victims in the triage area. The 26 were dead and there were no injured victims to triage.

An Emergency Room MD, who was teaching a class to other medical personnel on gunshot wounds, told the class that the ER doesn’t see too many patients with wounds from  .223 hollow point rounds fired from high powered rifles. The reason? The Doctor said that most people never make it to the Hospital with these wounds.

Nothing Happening at the Scene

4) Nothing is happening outside the school during the tragedy. The footage you see is one or more hours AFTER the shooting and authorities blocked the driveway to keep hysterical parents away from the school.

“Adam” is really Ryan

5) Adam Lanza is really Ryan Lanza. Actually, his features are similar maybe because they are brothers.

The Parents Were “Crisis Actors”

6) All the Sandy Hook parents are actors and musicians and are older than most parents of 6 year-olds.

In real reality, some of the 20 parents have acting and musical talent. This has always been true of Newtown and is truer today. Many people living in Newtown work and perform in Manhattan and other, nearby musical and acting venues.

Most of the parents of the victims stayed out of the limelight. Naturally, the parents with acting and performing experience were more comfortable with public speaking and therefore volunteered to be the spokespeople. The more mature parents were willing to came forward and speak to the media.

Memorial Christmas Trees Stored at Firehouse Before the Tragedy

7)  We had a good laugh at this one. The Christmas trees decorated and placed as memorials to the victims were seen on video in a pile behind the firehouse before it was known what had happened. In real reality, many firehouses hold Christmas tree sales as a fund-raiser and this firehouse has done so for decades. The December 14th date means these trees may have been leftovers.

Medical Examiner Acted Strangely

8) The Medical Examiner, whose name is ironically “Carver”, acted oddly. In real life, unlike on TV shows, people span the full range of personality types. Think about the fact that this man had just performed autopsies on many of the tiny 6 year-olds with unspeakable wounds. In light of this, there is little strange in anything he said or did.

Adam Lanza Not Known or Seen

9) No one had heard of or talked to Adam Lanza in 3 years. I can’t think of a rational explanation for that except that, just maybe, he was living in a self-imposed isolation.

Manipulated Victim Photos

10) The photos of the victims with their families appear photo shopped. You can look at almost any photo and claim it is photo shopped for one reason or another.

Manipulated Shooter Photos

11) There are no photos of brothers Adam and Ryan Lanza together. There are no photos of these brothers together that were RELEASED TO THE MEDIA, for obvious reasons.

There are no recent photos of the brothers together, also for obvious reasons. One more thing – Adam did not like to have his photo taken, and he’s not the only one who’s like that.

Victims Parents Were New to Newtown

12) Some of the parents moved to Newtown a few years before the tragedy. I can’t really answer that one except that just maybe, many parents buy a home and move to a town around the start of their children’s schooling.

Student Made Reference to a “Drill”

13) A Sandy Hook Student recalling the tragedy days later spoke of a “drill”. Yes, the school had a lock down drill 2 weeks before the shooting and the student was drawing comparisons saying his experiences were similar to the drill.

15-1n008-firehouse1-c-300x250C

Complacent and Smiling Parents

14)  The parents were really “crisis actors” and were smiling and even laughing days after they lost their children. If they were good crisis actors, they would not have laughed and smiled at all, would they? Real people actually laugh and smile at times, even in the midst of a tragedy. Most people feel the whole range of emotions at such a time.

Pray that you do not have to bear a horrendous and inexplicable tragedy in your life for you to know how the victim’s families really felt and behaved.

The Shooter and his Mother were Autopsied Last

15) The autopsies of the children and other victims were done before the shooter and his mother. Why were these autopsies done last if they are the most important from a forensic viewpoint? Because they were the most important from a forensic viewpoint is precisely the reason they were autopsied last rather than first.

Second Shooter and Other Suspects

16) There were other suspects outside the school. The new report makes clear that there were in fact individuals outside the school, a parent who heard the report on the radio and came to the school, an off duty policeman spotted by other police in the woods, a looky-loo who heard the news and came to see what he could see, and two reporters.  Some were detained and brought to the police station because the police were not going to take any chances.

Amusingly, the new report reveals that some police dropped shotgun rounds on the ground both inside and outside the school. These were photographed and became evidence in the case.

The “Firehouse Circle”

17) People  were reported to be walking around aimlessly in circles outside the firehouse. Concerned parents coming to the firehouse were arriving and being told to go to another entrance. Also, people who had been sitting inside for so long came out to stretch their legs.

The “conspiracy” footage we saw shows the same two cars repeatedly cruising down the same short stretch of road in the background, similar to what you see in the background of a Flintstone’s episode. It was obviously doctored. Thank-You, we had some more laughs.

There was also a claim that the 26 stars on top of the firehouse were placed there before the tragedy. Alright, then. We believe you, we surely do.

Video of police Entering a Different School

18) There is footage of heavily armed and helmeted police teams rushing to a nearby Catholic school, called the Saint Rose (of Lima) School. Maybe, just maybe the police secured nearby schools, and all schools in the surrounding area and towns were locked down as part of the response protocol. More than maybe, it’s a certainty. Sorry, hoaxers.

FEMA Response Drill Nearby

19) A FEMA “active shooter drill” was held 14 miles away in nearby Bridgeport on the same day as the Sandy Hook shootings. These kinds of drills are held all around the country, especially since 9-11, and between the holidays is a slow time when many of these events are held.

The Good Samaritan Ploy

20) The good Samaritan and retired psychologist, Gene Rosen, who was so kind to help the scared and confused children who ran out of Ms. Soto’s classroom (when Adam Lanza was re-loading), out the front door and down the driveway, was vilified as a “screen-actors” guild member (not true), and a part of the conspiracy.

To top it off, Gene Rosen owned the same model and color car as Adam Lanza drove to the school. Of course, the government uses only a certain model and color car for this special children massacre “drill”. Poor Mr. Rosen was hounded for months by the conspiracy theorists. This only goes to prove the theory that no kind act ever goes unpunished.

We need many more people as kind and understanding as Gene Rosen.

628x471 (1)

All the Black and Silver Cars

There was also much made of the fact that many of the Sandy Hook cars were silver or black. White, silver and black cars are the most popular and have the highest resale value. Many leased cars are one of these colors.

I have a black car. Before that, I had a silver car. My father has a silver car. Before that he had a white car and my mom had a black car. My brother has a silver car. And his son has a black car. We all must be part of this vast car conspiracy.

There truly is a Sandy Hook Conspiracy: All these Hoax reports are the conspiracy. A few gun rights activists want nothing more than to believe that these attacks never happened at all, happened with only handguns, or  that these attacks are only about mental health issues and have nothing to do with the weaponry used. So, these videos and articles have a large audience.

SHS_ArtLike the Aurora Theater Shooting. There is a severe lack of information and evidence which is publicly available. Unlike the Aurora Theater Shooting, the Sandy Hook shooting is a closed case. There will be no prosecutions and there will be no trial.

It’s time to reveal more information.

The latest “New Report”, first promised in June, but released in late November, 2013, is not representative in any way of what the investigation has uncovered. There was way more information discovered than what was reported. We, the public, do not need to know every detail of an investigation. But this is not enough by any standard.

It is not a “Reader’s Digest condensed version or even a “Cliff’s Notes” Version. It’s more like a “cheat sheet version”.

download (3)Cleverly designed to appear to be revealing lots of information while revealing almost nothing, the authorities have gone too far in withholding basic information. The public has a right to know. This paltry report took 11 months to release?

No one expects identifying photos of the victims, but a video screen shot of the shooter or some concrete representation of the attack is needed. A photo of a broken window and some glass shards are not enough. Perhaps the state of Connecticut is waiting until after the Anniversary of the attack and the holidays before revealing more information. But I suspect this is nearly all we will see, and that is grossly inadequate.

People need a little more information so we fully realize the gravity of this horrendous act. This way, we can finally get together and make sure we find ways to reduce the number and the lethality of mass shootings and the possibility of this happening again.

images (1)The Sandy Hook shooting is thought by many to be a vast conspiracy aimed at providing a catalyst to spur gun control legislation. No, the ability of mentally disturbed people to easily get hold of weapons, many of these weapons owned by law-abiding gun owners, is the catalyst for mental health AND gun safety legislation.

The simple fact is that guns make impulsive behavior into deadly behavior, because of the ease of operation, and the shooter can do this from both an emotional and physical distance. So we need to find a way to keep them away from unstable people.

You cannot address mental health issues in the context of mentally disturbed people who use military style weapons and large capacity magazines to commit mass shootings without including gun safety measures.

hsuHey You!

-Hoaxers and conspiracy theorists! I hope it’s only because you enjoy the detective work and the hobby of engaging in speculation and creating slick videos. I truly hope you do not believe all this hooey. Besides, it’s kind of hateful and disrespectful.

I would like to give you a proper response, but I am trying to evolve and be more civil!

The Sandy Hook Atrocity, JFK, and 154 Magic Bullets (part 4)

Fact based reporting

by Kenneth Jameson Jr.,

research by Amanda Chen,  edited by Rob  Roman

A 4-part series by a Sandy Hook Elementary alumnus on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy. An overview of Newtown from the inside, a description of what is now known about what happened on December 14, 2012 (Including a possible motive), an analysis of  the different sides of the issues, and what the prognosis is for slowing the rate of mass killings and gun violence in America are all discussed.

Part 4: Response

Yeah, of course, the magic bullet needed to solve the problem of mass shootings is more guns. Who would have thought?

628x471 (1)Yeah, of course, if you have a child who is obviously mentally disturbed, who refuses to speak and has no meaningful interaction, you should do what Nancy Lanza did. Her child was e-mailing her from two rooms away. If you have a child who is now an adult but doesn’t want to get a job, find a constructive hobby, enroll in a school or seek help, what would you do?

That’s right! Firearm therapy. Don’t get him a paint set, a telescope or build him a sound studio or his own dance studio. Don’t buy him a horse, a keyboard, a robot or set him up with his own computer business. Just let him fester and decay and leave him to his own devices. Let him sit in his “lair” and block out the sun with trash bags. Just take him to the firing range and buy him his favorite weapons. Indulge his every anti-social whim. Makes sense to me.

No one dared say “NO!” to Adam Lanza until the morning of last December 14th.

download (7) download (6)The young man who enjoyed “Dance Dance Revolution” as much as he liked “Mortal Combat”, and  was ready with an ammo vest, a hat, sunglasses. yellow ear-plugs, fingerless gloves, and camouflage leg holsters had a date with destiny. He had watched videos of gun suicides, taken photos of himself holding guns and rifles to his head, and had practiced aiming, shooting, reloading, and gunning down students with computer games such as “Grand Theft Auto”, “School Shooting”, “Battlefield”,  and “Left for Dead”.

article-sandy-hook-shootingEvery time there is a mass shooting, it sickens us and is unimaginable. Not much different from terrorism, it’s really a sort of domestic terrorism, and nothing more. These people have a limited personal agenda, unlike Timothy McVeigh, Ted Kaczynski and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who had more of an overall political agenda. Still, they are striking out at humanity in a way. They hurt, and they want to hurt their communities back. In some cases, they are striking out at their towns, the country and even the world. The idea of murdering innocent people, who have no direct relationship with the shooter, just doesn’t make sense to most of us.

Sadly, now these mass killings have become almost routine in this country. When the news of Sandy Hook first hit the internet and the news, there was talk of a shooter, but no talk of casualties. Since we’ve seen this play out so many times before, we knew that they don’t mention that anyone died until the next of kin are notified. So, the longer it stayed on the news, the worse we knew it would be. Even so, it was far worse than we could have imagined.

644700_334365313353303_1935252436_n-thumb-250x250-103888As incomprehensible as these other crimes are, we can try to understand most of them a little. At Springfield, Oregon, Kip Kinkel was the son of accomplished and driving parents. He didn’t measure up and he turned to deviance. He seemed to lash out at his classmates and just seemed to attack them as a punishment for feeling they forced him to kill both his parents. At Columbine, these two were striking out at their peers and community. At Virginia Tech, this angry man was also trying to deeply wound all the students at his school.

The Sandy Hook shooting was even more horrific and incomprehensible. Adam Lanza had no recent connection with The Sandy Hook School. These kids were 6 and 7 years old. Was his intended target really Newtown High School? The reason he went to the rooms he did seems not to be the ages of the children, but because they were the closest to the entrance and his car and he could see out the front windows. Sandy Hook School doesn’t have as many unknowns. At Newtown High, there are too many doors, too many driveways, too many people coming in and out and not enough windows. He did not want to be touched, and he didn’t want to get in a position where he could be attacked from behind.

The children were smaller and posed less of a threat to him. He had more control there. As a student at Sandy Hook Elementary, Adam was reportedly happy. By 5th grade, he was already writing stories about killing children. So I believe Sandy Hook School may have represented for him, the end of his happiness, and it only got worse after that. After years of decay, this person had no care, no empathy, and no feelings left for anyone. He projected that emptiness out onto everyone and everything he saw. Like Kip Kinkel, he just couldn’t accept what he was.

He knew what time to go there and he knew no one would be outside. He shot the adults on sight, eliminating the biggest threats first.

f8b79719baee2727440f6a7067004062Take a look at his firearms, they are really magnificent looking. Look at the design of them. They are really bad – ass. These weapons fill a void for some people who are incomplete. They project power outwards. This is what Adam was doing, he was projecting power outwards. He was controlling the environment that had controlled him for so long and had shut him away. He wanted to say to Newtown  and possibly the world: “I was here” and “I controlled you”.

That’s the best I can come up with as far as a motive.

I have a harder time understanding his mom. Nancy Lanza is the one we need to study. To understand Adam, we really need to understand Nancy Lanza.  Nancy was self-reliant and she was going to handle the problem herself. She had a distrust of government and a distrust of Doctors. She had a fortress with an arsenal of firearms. Her home was chock full of weapons such as arrows, spears, ornate knives and swords. What was that all about?

download (8)Maybe for some women, the sewing circles and card clubs of yore have now been replaced by a gun culture which opens up doors for community and socialization. Nancy spent a lot of time at her favorite restaurant and bar hobnobbing with her buds. Want to get in with certain clubs? Buy a Bushmaster AR-15, and you’re in the club. That’s my feeling.

Tupperware parties have now been replaced with gun parties.

You think I’m kidding? Take a look at this:

“At GunEnvy, we know what it takes to make your event, the event of a lifetime

Let us put together a custom package for your next event or party, that will really kick it off with a BANG!

We provide machine gun rental packages, in a safe, controlled environment, that will be sure to make your party or event the envy of all those to come.

From full auto Glock pistols, to MP5s, AK47s, M4s, 1919 and many more, including the legendary Tommy gun!!!!

Events can be held at your suitable location*, or our private location.”

-No, this is not a joke.-

Guns could very well go mainstream, just like tatoos finally did.

What would the character from Sling Blade say?

“All right, then.”

Back to Adam Lanza:

Noah_Pozner_20121217121328_640_480 image

All of these mass murders are shocking. But this one, because of the ages of the children, the number of deaths, and the fact that no one that he targeted and shot lived, makes this so much more heinous. This shooting really shook the nation. And it shook people who live in Newtown and Sandy Hook alumni like me and my sister even worse. What is going on in America? Connecticut has over 300 towns and thousands of schools. This happened in a school I went to and loved. What are the odds? For the children who lived through this and were traumatized it is even worse, and for the family and friends of the victims, it is unimaginable.

The shock to the conscience we received as a Nation from the Sandy Hook Massacre can only compare with the shock we felt after the Oklahoma City Bombing, Columbine, 9-11, and the assassination of President Kennedy.

It was unspeakable and unimaginable, an act so wanton and grotesque that it short circuits the brain. There is absolutely nothing that can justify it, but much worse than having a sick and twisted reason for committing a heinous atrocity is to have no reason at all.

download (5)It brings to mind the 1979 Cleveland Elementary school shooting where the shooter, Brenda Spencer, who lived across the street, and from her window, shot the principal and a custodian to death and wounded 8 children and a policeman in San Diego,. She was asked why. Her response became a hit song by the Boom Town Rats. “I don’t like Mondays”. Her father was told by her school she should seek hospitalization. Her father opted to not have her committed and he bought her a rifle for her birthday instead.

At Sandy Hook Elementary, the poor children locked in a toilet were crying and begging to go home so they could just have Christmas, how awful.

Like the other shocks, our first response is absolute helplessness and our second response is to ask WHY?

images (16)After the Kennedy Assassination, Americans all felt helpless and vulnerable and they all asked why. They are still asking, from the Warren report, to mistrust of their government, to all the many magic bullet and conspiracy theory spin offs and then finally back to the Warren report again, many are still asking “Why”.

“The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” – Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President of the NRA

With those gems of wisdom, Wayne LaPierre is the winner of the 2013 Newtown Golden Cock award.

Who is the President of the NRA? He’s David Keene, who’s son was convicted for firing a gun out of a moving car on the George Washington Memorial Parkway in Virginia in 2002, shattering the back window of another car and lodging in the front seat perilously close to the driver. After this road rage incident, his son was sentenced to 10 years in prison. David Keene then changed his hardliner tune on mandatory minimum sentencing legislation for firearms violations. Go figure.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/josh-sugarmann/new-nra-prez-david-keenes_b_856268.html

Jack Ruby was the good guy with a gun who only made matters worse. You cannot take Evil and twist it’s arm until it gives up. You cannot wrestle Evil to the ground and make it cry “Uncle!”. That’s what the Bill Stevens and the Wayne LaPierres of this world need to learn, because then you have now become the bad guy.

images (17)Bill Stevens with all his bluster and thinly veiled threats  is not the hero of Newtown. The secret to heal a town and a nation won’t come from a firearm. Maybe there is a clue to what a real hero is really about in this poem:

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;

which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)

and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart) – e.e, cummings

images (18)The only thing that can stop a bad guy is transformation, that’s the lesson of the Grinch who Stole Christmas.

That’s the lesson of the Sandy Hook Promise.

The only redeeming thing in this abhorrent tragedy is the good people of Newtown  and the good people throughout our nation and the world who responded to this unthinkable act by choosing love. They answered random violence with directed kindness, they answered insanity with lucidity, and they answered decay with germination.

They replaced hopelessness with optimism.

The kind and supportive words from leaders around the world, the cards and gifts sent to Newtown and the Sandy Hook victims from around the U.S. and the world. All the empathetic and caring people who make this country great and sent light into the darkness of Newtown.

The victims and families of other shocking mass killings who came to help, the people who brought the trauma therapy dogs, the spontaneous memorial sites full of candlelight, ribbons, and toys, was the answer that echoed back from this abomination.

ct-shooting-cynthia-alvarezThe good people of Newtown took a horrific and senseless tragedy and somehow turned it into an opportunity to change and to grow. They brought the Holidays back to Newtown and they brought Christmas back to Whoville.

The people of Newtown, conservative and liberal, gun enthusiasts and not, all got together for their love of humanity and the love of their children to bring about some changes and to somehow reduce the chances that another town would have to bear the unbearable. One of the outcomes was the founding of an organization called the Sandy Hook Promise.  At this one year Anniversary, this is no time to get lost in rhetoric and political intransigence. This is no time to stumble or to give up. In truth, it’s only just the beginning of a long journey.

We can choose to parent together and look out for each other. It really does take a village (like Sandy Hook) to raise our children and to help keep them safe

We can choose to help change and improve our violent and competitive culture.

Hadiya Pendleton was shot  to death in Harsh Park in Chicago only 1 week after performing in the 2013 Presidential inauguration (click to enlarge)

We can choose to risk and sacrifice for the good of the whole, like 6 year-old Sandy Hook victim, Jesse Lewis did when he saw Adam Lanza struglling to change magazines and urged the kids to run, saving the lives of 6 children.

We can choose to be kind to the least of us. We can be a friend to the lonely, the downtrodden and the isolated, like 7 year-old Sandy Hook victim, Daniel Barden, was for his fellow classmates. If there were more people like Daniel  in Adam’s life, this tragedy may have been averted

We can replace the fear of failure, with the assurance of music and hope, like 6 year-old Sandy Hook victim, Anne Marquez-Greene did nearly every day.

We can help to make our schools and our public places safer….

….and let’s never stop pursuing better and more effective ways to  deal with mental illness and gun safety.

images (19)Don’t sweep it under the rug. Expose the truth.

We can call Wayne LaPierre and Bill Stevens, who want to handle it all by themselves, AFTER security is restored

For Newtown, For Newtown, Steady and Strong are We.”

The Sandy Hook Atrocity, JFK, and 154 Magic Bullets (part 2)

Fact based reporting

by Kenneth Jameson Jr.,

research by Amanda Chen,  edited by Rob  Roman

A 4-part series by a Sandy Hook Elementary alumnus on the one-year anniversary of the tragedy. An overview of Newtown from the inside, a description of what is now known about what happened on December 14, 2012 (Including a possible motive), an analysis of  the different sides of the issues, and what the prognosis is for slowing the rate of mass killings and gun violence in America are all discussed.

Part 2: The Killings

Warning: Graphic Content

Running to safety  (click on photo to enlarge)

Adam Lanza regularly played many militaristic and highly realistic video games and violent movies where semi-automatic rifles were used. He became insensitive to the bloody, exploding bodies of the victims.

Here, he learned to change out magazines at the most opportune time, and not to wait until every last round was fired.

The School Shooting Game

This explains what was found later at the school. Lanza had intensely studied prior mass shootings, going so far as to make a chart with over 500 victims from past incidents and exactly what firearms and equipment were used.

Here is a sample of the video game.

Warning: Graphic Violence.

He was clearly going for the body count high score.

Thanks to the State of Connecticut, the full report they promised by the beginning of Summer, 2013, has still not been revealed. Instead, a whitewashed and watered down brief summary was released that is hardly adequate or conducive to understanding or helping to prevent future incidents. The State legislature even passed special legislation to overrule the usual freedom of information act requirements. While this is understandable, not enough information has been allowed out. In fairness, the State has mentioned that a more thorough report from the grossly inadequate November report will be forthcoming.

Connecticut School ShootingIt is very natural to theorize that Adam Lanza was happy at some point as a student at the Sandy Hook School. At some point, he was forced to realize that he was quite different and not quite accepted by the other kids.  It is almost certain that happiness in school ended for Adam sometime while a student of Sandy Hook Elementary School. It seems that smile on his face had disappeared forever.

Illustrating this fact, the latest report refers to Adam Lanza’s thinking about the Sandy Hook School: “A witness interviewed by police said that the Sandy Hook Elementary School “was (Lanza’s) life,” but the warrant does not elaborate”. Did Nancy Lanza, Adam’s mom, volunteer at the Sandy Hook school at some point or not? Yes, she did.

Was Nancy Lanza planning to volunteer at the Sandy Hook school in the future or not?  This is important information that is crucial to understanding why Adam targeted the school. It seems that whether she was planning on volunteering in the future or not, somehow, Adam Lanza  may have had the idea she was going to dump him off at a facility somewhere and spend her time with these children. What purpose is there in classifying this and making it top state secret?

It’s vitally important because we know that Nancy Lanza was seeking some kind of  dormitory type schooling for her son. Were they campus-like private institutions for mentally impaired people, or were they actual, normal colleges and technical universities she was looking at?

There are conflicting reports about whether Nancy was going to stay in Newtown while Adam was sent away to school. The latest report indicates that she may have been planning on going with him, but it seems that the guns and ammo would not. In either case, it seems a change in the new year was planned and Adam Lanza did not approve.

C732-1-WH64Like the John F. Kennedy investigation, key facts were locked up and withheld from the public.  That’s understandable in the JFK investigation, because the killing may have involved other shooters and conspiracies. It may have involved other co-conspirators even if Lee Harvey Oswald was in fact the lone shooter. The so-called “magic bullet” that conspiracy theorists love to talk about was not magic at all. Information that was hidden and secreted away led to misunderstandings that then led to the “magic bullet” conspiracy theory.  More basic and fundamental facts were also hidden which had no actual bearing on the conspiracy issue. These fatcs were withheld also, which led to more controversy, more misunderstandings, and more accusations of cover-up and conspiracy.

Kill-bill-kill-bill-8382808-1810-1175 ltAdam Lanza was interested, almost infatuated with warfare, weapons, and killing. Found in Adam’s home were nine ornate knives, a bayonet, and three samurai swords. Also found in the house was a damaged X-box and a smashed computer hard drive. Did Adam like to watch Kill Bill, Volumes 1 and 2? Are owning many firearms, playing violent video-games, displaying a combat mentality, and watching and re-enacting explicitly violent movies a problem? Maybe not for you and me, but maybe for some people who are not able to interact effectively and for the mentally disturbed. Maybe it’s a problem for an isolated person who finally wants to say “I was here!”.

758ebdb1bab22627440f6a706700beecWindows covered in black figure prominently in this case. In Adam’s bedroom, the windows were covered by black plastic trash bags, and he had a Dracula like aversion to sunlight.  He was highly sensitive to light and to noise. The gun locker was in fact located in Adam’s bedroom. Unlike many earlier reports, he did not break into the locker to get the firearms. Most probably, his mother kept the key on her person.

“The released search warrants of Adam Lanza’s home showed large amounts of ammunition in an open unlocked gun safe in his bedroom, as well as in a closet, a file cabinet, a shoe box and duffle bag. “Police also recovered medical records and journals authored by Adam Lanza and his brother, Ryan Lanza, and a holiday card from his mother with a check made out to Adam for the purchase of a C183 firearm. cz_83There were also receipts for the purchase and transfer of firearms.”

Supporters of the Constitution and especially the 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms, were quick to point out that the “C183” firearm does not exist and that it most likely was a 14 megapixel digital camera manufactured by Kodak. If only that were true! Had Adam been encouraged to take an interest in photography rather than automatic pistols and high powered rifles, this incident may never have happened. The “C183” is most likely a CZ83, which is in fact a small but high caliber handgun manufactured in the Czech Republic.

Why did Adam Lanza want a micro-sized gun, which has the whallop of it’s .38 caliber and holds 15 rounds in the magazine? No doubt, it’s on many people’s Christmas lists.

The estimated 1,400 rounds discovered in Adam Lanza’s home seems like a large amount.  Gun owners scoff at this saying it is not at all an unusual amount, not even enough for a day at the target range.  kipland-kinkel-1-afpAs far as law abiding gun owners, we should listen to them, because they know the gun culture and they know many things about which they speak. In fact, Kip Kinkel had more rounds than that on his person after the school shooting in Springfield, Oregon

The facts we know show that Adam Lanza woke early on the 14th of December, 2012, or may not have slept at all. He either made his bed or it remained made up from the previous day. Nancy Lanza had just returned from another long trip where she was looking at various schools or institutions for Adam in The U.S. as well as England and Canada. Needless to say, we can surmise that if the school was in the UK or Canada, or if the US institution included on campus housing, those firearms were not going to be going with Adam. We can surmise that Adam was keenly aware that ‘the times, they were a-changin’.

Was there a discussion? Was there an argument? Was it before or after the trip or both? We don’t know this, but we do know that Adam shot his mom dead in her bed while she was most likely asleep. In his favorite video game, targets shot only once or twice could remain alive and fire back. Adam shot his mom four times in the head, covered her with plastic, and then took at least three photos. He left the camera and the .22 rifle at home.

ae1b6415baeb2727440f6a70670041ea ltIt’s important to know the facts. Today, November 25, 2013, a CNN reporter was discussing the new report and reported that Adam Lanza killed “20 children and 2 adults”. Actually, it was six adults at the school and twenty children. Reporters, please get the basic facts straight! The 26 doesn’t include his mother killed at his home. There was a definite and purposeful effort to exclude the mother from the 26 other victims. At first glance, this seems to be an innocent omission because the 26 victims were located at the school, and Nancy was not part of the school shooting. But it seems it is more than that.

ar 15 cropped lightNancy indulged Adam with his every desire and did not try to steer his interests into more productive and constructive avenues.  Because Adam responded enthusiastically to his mother’s penchant for collecting and firing weapons, she indulged him in this particular fascination. The school system tried to propose special help for Adam, but she insisted that her son be treated equally with the other children.  By the time Adam was at Newtown High School, she continued fighting the school system, claiming her son was much brighter than the others. She pushed him to enroll at Western Connecticut State University to prove her point, which worked well for a while, thanks to a handful of very understanding and good-hearted students, but this bright idea of Nancy’s ultimately resulted in Adam withdrawing from school altogether.

glockAdam got the key to the gun locker and he took out his babies, a Glock 10 mm handgun, a  9mm Sig Sauer P226 handgun, and a Bushmaster AR-15 high powered semi-automatic rifle and 10, 30-round, high capacity mags fully loaded. Adam loaded this equipment plus more mags for the pistols and a semi-automatic shotgun into his mother’s black sigHonda Civic and began the 5 mile trip to the school. He parked the car against the front brick wall to the right of the main entrance, and pointing towards the driveway entrance. This indicates he may have contemplated a shootout or an escape.

Thanks again to the Connecticut State Police and probably the FBI, there are unconfirmed reports that Adam, in preparation of the attack, had taped the 30-round magazines together for easier and quicker reloading. Were all the mags taped together or just the two? They know, but for some reason, this must be kept a state secret also. The school was equipped with locked doors that can be opened remotely in the office, and there were security cameras at the door and in the hallways.  Adam solved that problem by blasting through the safety glass near the front door with his AR-15 rifle and climbing through. He fired 8 rounds to make the hole in the window.

76f41019bade2727440f6a706700deb7 lt“Principal Dawn Hochsprung, school psychologist Mary Sherlach and lead teacher Natalie Hammond “immediately left the room where there was a morning meeting, and rushed to the source of the sounds. They encountered and confronted Lanza. A faculty member who was at the meeting said the three women called out “Shooter! Stay put!” which alerted their colleagues to the danger and saved their lives. Lanza shot and killed both Hochsprung and Sherlach. He fired 17 rounds in the hallway  as Hammond ran back to the meeting room and pressed her body against the door to keep it closed. Lanza shot Hammond through the door, in her leg and arm. She was later treated at Danbury Hospital”. One teacher was hit in the foot with a ricochet bullet while closing the door to her classroom.” – The Sandy Hook Report

Adam went into the Office, but hte workers were hiding.

A few weeks before, the school had a lock down drill, which included locking the classroom doors and covering the door windows with black paper. The teacher, Ms. Roig,  in this first classroom had not removed the black paper from the door window. In that classroom immediately to the left of the office, Adam could not see inside, and passed the classroom by, sparing the lives of everyone in that room.

Understandably, but tragically, the classroom doors could not be locked from the inside. This is done in many schools to protect children from a teacher or staff member with an evil intent.

970619_379054075546523_369161523_nAdam went into the next room where teachers Victoria Soto and Anne Marie Murphy had already hidden 5 kids in a closet. The other kids were under desks in the rear of the room and trying to get into the bathroom. Ms. Soto had gone to the door to try to lock it. Lanza came in, forgetting in the previous firings that he was low on ammo. He immediately shot Ms. Soto and then probably expressed consternation as the mag was empty. This is when he went to reload and 6 year-old Jesse Lewis yelled to the other kids to “Run!”.  These were the  6 kids that ran out of the school and down the driveway to a nearby home. Ms. Murphy was trying to help 6 year-old special needs student Dylan Hockley and  he died in her arms. Two teachers and 5 students were shot to death. The 5 kids hidden in a closet also survived. Two teachers and five students were killed in that classroom, and Adam had fired 49 rounds.  You do the math.

sandy-hook-demolition-kidsBy the time Lanza got to the third classroom, substitute teacher Lauren Rousseau and her aide, Rachel D’avino,  were already herding the kids into the small bathroom at the rear of the classroom. Adam immediately shot at the adults and this is when bullets went through the window and into some cars in the parking lot. He shot the two educators and then began methodically shooting all the kids, reloading several times. Noah Pozner was shot 11 times and his lower jaw was blasted away(his mom furnished this information so people would have a small idea of what this atrocity was really like).  One little girl in the corner of the room survived by playing dead. The shooter  was a good shot, and this was at very close range. Adam was not looking to leave any wounded survivors.The two teachers and 15 children were shot to death. Lanza fired 80 rounds. You do the math.

223-Ammo-550This is where the victim’s families need to be “brave and bold” for Newtown. The Connecticut State Police and the families need to show a few of the photos. Not any where the victims can be identified. Perhaps a few photos from after the bodies were removed should be released. This Nation needs to confront the reality and the sheer horror of this awful and vile act.

What does a hollow-point bullet travelling at 2,900 feet per second (967 yards per second) (884 meters per second) do to a 6 year old when it explodes on impact and breaks into multiple sharp fragments at super-sonic speed?

sandy-hook-shootingThese hollow point bullets then fragment and the pieces spin and careen through vital organs . Of course they are the ammo of choice for the police and for concealed carriers such as George Zimmerman because these bullets are less likely to exit the body and possibly hit an innocent bystander.

But they are hell to deal with in our nation’s Emergency Rooms. This is also the reason why so many more single gunshot victims now become fatalities. My Vietnam Vet buddy was an avid collector of firearms, a hunter of bear, and a gun enthusiast. This was prior shooting his wife, a nurse, and then himself with a .357 magnum.  Speaking for the higher calibers like .38 and .44, he used to say “In like a dime, out like a pie-plate”. I don’t think he was joking.

We know that some faces were unrecognizable and that limbs were blasted apart. This is the horrible reality. The incredible violence and carnage of this attack cannot be overestimated.  article-sandy-hook-shooting (2)There is no reason why a few photos should not be made public. Photos can be prepared which show the reality of what happened, but do not identify anyone. The incredible damage these bullets can do when victims are hit multiple times at close range with high powered ammo is absolutely shocking. Some people have bad imaginations and, as in the case of Emmett Till, seeing is believing and action was finally taken after his mother released a photograph of what was done to him. Two children still had signs of life and were rushed to the hospital, but nothing could be done to save them. This is a big reason for this to look wrong to conspiracy minded people. The scenes with all the cars and ambulances were long after the children were found.

Here’s a candidate for the Newtown Golden Cock award for February 2013:

Rock Star Ted Nugent

ted nugent guns-0313-de“National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent, 64, relied on a false and outdated report frequently promoted by conspiracy theorists to claim that no assault weapons were used in the mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. In fact, Connecticut authorities have stated that all of the Newtown victims were shot with a Bushmaster AR-15 assault weapon, with some victims receiving up to 11 gunshot wounds.

In a February 13 column for birther website WND, Nugent wrote, “No so-called assault weapon was used in the grisly murders of the children and teachers in Newton,” and instead suggested that four handguns were used to kill 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

“CNN recently promoted Nugent as having a “very firm grasp of the facts” about gun violence. ”

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/02/14/ted-nugent-revives-false-report-to-deny-an-assa/192678

Ted, you do have a “very firm grasp on the facts” about gun violence, and people should listen to what you have to say, but please stick to the facts. Also, you haven’t had a hit song since “Wango Tango” in 1980.

If it’s not really an “assault weapon”, why are people so hell-bent on claiming that it wasn’t used at Sandy Hook?

Here’s another candidate for the Newtown Golden Cock award:

“Facing calls to resign before even taking his seat, a recently elected Connecticut school board member has apologized for saying he would buy friends “a box of ammunition” for each of the “26 Days of Kindness” commemorating the one-year anniversary of the Sandy Hook massacre.

Gregory Beck, a 26-year-old police dispatcher and volunteer firefighter, was elected earlier this month in Brookfield, which borders Newtown, scene of the Dec. 14 elementary school bloodbath.”

article-sandy-hook-shooting (1)The refusal of the authorities to release even a modest amount of concrete information about this attack is a crime in itself.

Some people viewing this attack as a threat to the 2nd Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, will continue to say this was a hoax perpetrated by the Federal Government as an attack on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. This is not unlike actions taken after the Shooting of President Kennedy 50 years ago, where way too many far fetched conspiracy theories and the general distrust of government was spawned and magnified by the refusal of the government to release enough modest information to the public.

Hoaxers even used the fact that all the pieces of the demolished school were disintegrated on site under security as proof of a conspiracy.

Why was this done? It was done so that bricks from the school wouldn’t be sold on e-bay.

Who can blame them? They want to see the proof for themselves. Here is what a conspiracy theorist has to say:

“Deception,Illusion and Propaganda are extensively being used to control the people. This blog is devoted to aid in the discernment of the tactics being used to deceive and manipulate society. “Ye Shall Know The Truth And The Truth Shall Make You Free” –  Christ Jesus”
article-sandyhook-harbus-1214

“I just can’t get it out of my mind as to why we have been shown absolutely no evidence of bodies or any damage that was done inside the school…….or photos of Adam Lanza entering the school….etc…etc. THEN…..TODAY….I couldn’t believe what I was hearing on the news……..
Besides barricading the school grounds and the heavy security presence, while the demolition is taking place…..The demolition contractors were made to sign a confidentiality paper that bans the workers from discussing anything they may come across inside the school…. WHAT??????? That makes absolutely no sense at all. What evidence could there be in the school that the people involved do not want to be made public? Perhaps lack of bullet holes and broken glass or lack of other evidence that shows the events didn’t take place as the official media version claims?

http://conspiracyanalyst.blogspot.com/2013/10/sandy-hook-school-demolition-why.html

If you believe that the Sandy Hook School shooting was a hoax, I understand why you have been made to feel that way, but God help you, there are no magic bullets here. You are wasting your time. Get yourself at least an elementary school education.

images (2)Since we don’t know, we assume that Adam Lanza then heard sirens coming up the school driveway. We do know he spotted a pair of policemen and he went out in the hallway. He then hid from them going back into Ms. Soto’s classroom where he shot himself in the head with his 10 mm Glock pistol.

The entire incident at the school took only 5 minutes.

He brought ten 30-round magazines with him for the AR-15. Three were unused and fully loaded. Seven were used. Of the seven, three magazines were completely empty, and the one in the rifle had 15 rounds left. One had 13 rounds left over. One had 11 rounds left, and one had ten rounds left. Adam Lanza had 301 rounds available, including one round in the chamber to start.

Adam had learned from the game to change magazines at the most opportune moment, rather than when the magazine was completely empty, which accounts for the three magazines with some rounds left over.

During this time, the police spotted and apprehended several people outside on the school grounds. One was a reporter, who picked up the news and headed to the School to observe. One was a parent who had been notified of the attack on his smart phone and came directly to the school. Another was a local looky-loo, who heard of the attack over the internet and came to see what he could see. All these people were taken to jail, as they were still on the lookout for a second shooter and they weren’t taking any chances.

Crime Scene Evidence (Click to enlarge)

As horrible as this was, it could have been much, much worse. All the teachers were heroes and did everything they could to protect the children. At the time that Lanza came in through the hole in the window and fired at the Principal and the school psychologist, two students were walking down the hallway to deliver attendance sheets to the office. A quick thinking teacher saw them walk by her doorway and whisked them into her classroom as bullets whizzed past them down the hallway.

Crime Scene Evidence (click to enlarge)

Thanks to a black piece of paper on the window and 15 kids hiding quietly in a tiny 2′ by 3′ (.61 m x .91 m) bathroom with their teacher, who told them she loved them and meant it, more kids would have died. Kaitlin Roig thought quickly and made the right moves. Many other teachers went to great lengths to protect their children. One teacher even used xylophones to jam the doors closed. Thanks to Sandy Hook and Connecticut for being so up to date with lock-down and other security procedures, for many more would have died. Thanks to the quick response of the police, for Lanza wasn’t going to stop until the police closed in.

Maybe one of those surviving kids who rocketed out of Ms. Soto’s room and down the driveway of the Sandy Hook Elementary School, beat Bruce Jenner’s record for the 100 yard dash that day. I’m sure of it.
