From news reports ( i'm going with bbc 24) it's one with links to the school, a former pupil there. Absolutly horrific. There's got to be some kind of change after this.

I am hearing reports that he was a father of one of the students. But that is just hear-say.


If so, then the father was only 14 yrs old when the child was conceived. That doesn't sound very likely. I suspect that there'll be further information that contradicts that report.

1) About metal detectors. You're right. The metal detectors would have stopped these bastards. No wait, that's actually a pretty ignorant idea. Maybe the "no weapons on school grounds" sign should have been bigger. Maybe if the shooters knew that guns weren't allowed, they wouldn't have brought the guns in the first place. Please.

Please don't post facebook pages. You might not have the right person and you could be opening up innocent people to a lot of BS by doing that.

I'm wondering if there's a similar reason to the shooting as Dunblane in Scotland. The murderer there was an ex scout leader who'd been banned due to his dubious interest in children. Obviously very mentally damaged individual.

Ryan Lanza is being reported as the shooter. Just did a quick Google Search and found his name on a 2004 11th grade honor roll for Newton high school.

Honor student killing people WTF!


Any info about any possible mental instability?
Any possible triggers for this kind of behavior?
At work, can't really surf the net like that.

The simple purpose of terrorism is to upset a population and make them feel insecure. Control through fear.

So yes, it certainly is an act of terrorism.


How do we know the purpose was terrorism? The purpose should be defined by the one committing the act, not by those trying to figure it all out.

Maybe he doesnt care about making people feel insecure, maybe he was mentally unstable.

My heart is racing out of anger, sadness, and fear that this could happen anywhere, including where my children go to school.
They were the most innocent of possible victims... The survivors are victims as well, massive emotional trauma that could change them forever... GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I think everyone is in a state of shock, but do not fear. Fear is the little mind killer...it crushes the capacity for rational thought in bad situations...never yield to fear. Sadness, yes...anger...if controlled...but never fear.

My 'concern" is that more and more people are going to pop a gasket in the next week....this event and it's coverage may actually be a catalyst for others who think the world is going to end so "why not?"...that is something people should be concerned with...

Do not fear...become the sentinel...let your emotions drive your senses to be more keen and aware...not dulled and chaotic.

Considering the similar thing in China that happened within the last 24 hours, I have a gut feeling telling me we will see more insanity before next Friday...people can be crazy and all the hype over this meaningless date is popping the brains of some of them...and will until the date is past.


I can't help the fear... I'm a dad of a child in elementary school right now. Every parent has done the "what if" I'm sure. I'll calm down eventually.

Yup and in 2004 he was a honor roll 11th grader at Newtown High School. From honor rolls to mass murderer.
