I found this forum after having seen the images of Adam Lanza, and started hearing that people were mentioning he had Asperger's (and he did seem to fit the bill as an aspie)... a little bit of googeling around and I ended up here yesterday... and today having read through the whole post.
My first alarm bells went off when I saw the image of Adam Lanza... the boy looked like a weakling. The sort of child that 100 years ago probably
wouldn't have survived for long. I'm a female, and a weak female at that... I always claim I got the strenght of an 8 year old girl. Hahahaha.
Adam Lanza looked like he was even weaker than me - how did he lug all that ammo and guns about (at that time I was informed by the news that the
rifle was found in the car, albeit now it appears a rifle was used to kill the people inside the school).
Before that, I had like most, generally been shocked of the news, and saddened by the thought of those little kiddes not being around any more.
Anyway, ended up here, due to being an aspie (and there's nothing wrong with the word "aspie"!), I'm quite interested to see how they'll pan out
that "his asperger's made him violent". Asperger's does not make people go and shoot little kids. We do however have problems articulating how
we feel, and if people don't understand us we can get "violent"... I have myself thrown a few cups at the walls (and a PC out the door!) if my OH
hasn't understood how I feel about a subject (and no, not just any subject. Hahahaha. Not like we were discussing Christmas decorations, or
something trivial, but more about me having been put in a certain situation caused by him and he can't understand how I feel about it). But it's
what I like to call "hissy-fits" and as soon as the frustration is realeased - it's back to normal. I generally find my own hissy-fits hilarious
as soon as the episode is over, especially if I've had one in public (much to OHs horror and shame! Hahahahaha. Luckily I have no shame.
Hahahahaha). Being an aspie mixed with other things would probably not be a pretty result though...
So... after reading all these threads, I'm putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), mainly to try to make a little sense of things for myself.
* 2 shooters became 1
* The mother worked there. The mother does not work there
* Ryan was indicated as the killer.
* Can anyone agree on what guns where used or not?
* Killer looks like a weakling who needed help opening jam jars
* I cannot see how the kid, no matter how mentally disturb he was either by some drug, or some psychotic personality disorder, actually physically
managing to do it alone.
* I get the impression whomever leaked it out had been informed the mother worked there... had there been a mix up from whomever is the brains behind
it? Did they (before the shootings) believe the mother worked there and they figured that would be an excellent motive?
* Was Ryan the one supposed to be there? And I don't mean that Ryan himself would willingly have gone there and shot people... more like shot and
* I know nothing at all about guns... apart from that I think the world should be fair - either everyone should be allowed to carry a gun, or no-one
should be allowed. But even with my limited knowledge of the subject I cannot understand how a dead shooter can carry a rifle to the car after having
* Several guns, loads of ammo? Come on, he looked like he needed a neck support just to hold his head up.
I'm not gonna go try to figure out whom or why this was done, but personsally I don't think Adam, in any state of mind, would have been physically
capable of doing this. The Libor connection does seem plausible to me though... but I'm not gonna start getting obsessed about it... I obsess easily
- hahahahah. Otherwise, I'm just very puzzled. I do like puzzles, but hate being told a lie. At the moment it either all seems like guess work, or
badly thought-out lies filtered though the system. Maybe it's a little bit of both.
