CNN's story about the interview has a video commentary, a whole sidebar of stories about Newton, and a link to the official report released in December.
The reporter at the end of the video clip says the father says that he plans to make no other statements about the interview and he never intends to speak about it on camera.
This statement from the interview is pretty disturbing too: "The reason he shot Nancy four times was one for each of us: one for Nancy; one for him; one for (his brother) Ryan; one for me," he said.
He seems to be placing himself into Adam's head at the time of the crime ins some weird way.

I am new to ATS and I am still learning the ropes...hope I am responding correctly. The level of thought, maturity and writing skills displayed from the group of "seekers" on this site, opposed to others I have visited, is certainly refreshing and quite a fun find!
Having watched the above on CNN, I was also struck by the oddness of Peter Lanza injecting himself into the mind of his son at the time of Nancy's murder. It almost appears that it was more of a therapeutic session for Peter then a journalistic interview.
My question is with planes disappearing in mid-air and World crisis all around us...why the reopening of SH with this particular man and why now?
Thanks for having me. Great site.

It's all been settled now. Well, apparently, it's not the parents' responsibility to give their kids the proper care and professional help. It's Ron Paul who is probably at fault! (sarcasm)
Peter Lanza just had to mention Adam Lanza was Ron Paul's fan.
Hmmm....now I wonder if the entire "interview" was scripted ...with an added political agenda?
From what I can tell the father is a POS, and most likely received a hefty check for his interview after all this time.

...did Mr. Lanza ever take any responsibility for knowing that there were unsecured guns kept in the home where his son was living? Peter must have at least known the guns were there and accessible and that there were plans being made for those guns - why else would he make the broad conjecture that Adam was figuratively killing the entire family when he blew Nancy away?
IMO, that implies planning suspicions aplenty from Peter Lanza.
This interview smells as off as 3 week old milk.
...On the other hand, maybe all we need to do is hunt down what particular psychotropic drug does that to people, although the coroner's report was that Adam Lanza had no drugs in his system at the time of the murders, and no Rx's were found at the house for him. (Because if some drug was named, there goes that company's stock prices...and also here comes the lawsuits.)
As far as the 'weird kid' comments the father made; I doubt he made these to Adam personally, although it's pretty apparent from nearly everyone's comments that he was indeed not your run-of-the-mill happy kid. Is anyone anymore? Seems like everyone has their brains taken over by either video games or the teevee and no one plays soccer or baseball or reads a book anymore. Maybe that's just me... my best friend's ex likes to play WoW with his 5 year old son and seems to think this is normal. Am I the only one that thinks this is inappropriate for that age group?

So you're advocating that parents cave into their child's wishes across the board?
Or are you just a fan of a parent who makes the decision to abandon his troubled child at a time when that child and the parent still in the picture need support and help most?
No, you're right we should really throw a parade for parents who abandon their children because their child's mental health issues don't fit into that parents lifestyle...

If he truly had Asperger's then it's not as simple as that!!!
I don't think people understand the amount of planning that would have to have been done to bring forth such an atrocity if Asperger's is indeed what the Boy suffered from!!!
It would have taken much more than Brainwashing from his Parents!!!
Hell it would have taken a whole CIA department over the course of his entire life, just to Brainwash him into it...
& to see the attack go through???... That's a whole different story altogether!
I don't think his Parents, or anyone else's for that matter, would have been smart enough to do such a thing!!!
Plus there would need to be a Motive!!!
