I HAVE seen conclusive proof that it happened, war footage, witness accounts, hell if you really gotta know, the nazi's left some pretty horrible tattoo's on my grandparent too. Your point is total rubbish.
FBI publishes crime report showing "0" deaths occurred in Newtown in 2012

I have some serious doubts that anyone was even killed on that day.
Noah Pozner had an open casket funeral
Jack Pinto - Open casket funeral
Jesse Lewis - Open casket funeral
What really matters here is why the number of Newtown deaths is 0. It took me all of 10 minutes to find it (something I wish some of you would have bothered to do, instead of just freaking out). If the FBI is publishing UCR numbers, then why not just look at the UCR? Here is a direct link to the 2012 Connecticut Uniform Crime Report, the EXACT ONE that the FBI is getting numbers from:
Too long; didn't read version: The Sandy Hook murders are NOT unreported by the FBI. They are reported under a different category than Newtown which is why they do not show up on a table that only lists cities.
which is why they do not show up on a table that only lists cities.
The FBI table is compiled through data it receives from Uniform Crime Reports. These are reports submitted by states to the FBI.
In it, you will see that the Sandy Hook deaths are not listed under Newtown, but instead are listed under the area / agency "State Police Misc." You can view it yourself on page 415 of the Uniform Crime Report.
3 Includes 27 victims of Newtown mass shooting
So check the 2012 Connecticut Uniform Crime Report. I linked it and explained how to find it yourself through Google. In it, you can verify that the # of deaths in Newtown is 0, just like the FBI table says.
I believe this is because they don't categorize this as Murder but at something else. Edit: Yep, I just checked, it is categorized as "Active Shooter" and shows up on a separate report with 27 deaths. Source More proof Alex Jones is full of sh*t. I found this in 35 seconds. Edit: Active Shooter Active shooter includes, it seems, any mass murder. It becomes a national statistic, not a local statistic, as it falls under the Jurisdiction of the FBI.
John Nicolette, PhD, conducted a study of 35 active shooter incidents during 2012 and discussed the results of his study during a lecture entitled “Detection and Disruption of Insider/Outsider Perpetrated Violence.” The average active shooter incident lasts 12 minutes, while 37 percent last less than five minutes. 49 percent of attackers committed suicide, 34 percent were arrested, and 17 percent were killed. 51 percent of the attacks studied occurred in the workplace, while 17 percent occurred in a school, 17 percent occurred in a public place, and six percent occurred in a religious establishment. Peter Blair, PhD, and Hunter Martindale, PhD, conducted a study of 84 active shooter incidents from 2001 to 2010. Here’s a summary of their findings: Two percent of the shooters bring improvised explosive devices (IEDs) as an additional weapon. In 10 percent of the cases, the shooter stops and walks away. In 20 percent of the cases, the shooter goes mobile, moving to another location. 43 percent of the time, the crime is over before police arrive. In 57 percent of the shootings, an officer arrives while shooting is still underway. The attacks ended before the police arrived 49 percent of the time. In 56 percent of the attacks ongoing when police arrived, officers had to use force to stop the killing.
