Up your post count in some other thread; we're not rehashing the Jared Loughner "death by a thousand trolls" thread tonight.

ETA: mods, please do remove this post when you've edited out all the other noise. Thanks.

Its not more horrible than a drone attack,killing moms and kiddies in some far-flung corner of the world.It is not.Americans though,do not as a rule get struck this close to home,at the youngest of their young,so the shock and grief hits with the force of the tactical nuke.I was mailing a friend in Denver,and i reminded her of the school siege in Russia,wherein many little children got killed too.After all this time,that horror still brings me to tears when i think about it.My heart is for the most innocent and pure,the most vulnerable and defenseless everywhere,as the Palestinian or Pakistani kiddies,the youngest victims of the crime+ genocide in my own country,etc..the list is endless.All that purity and potential,its something so deeply sad,for me,each of these slayings i come to know of,hurts on a deep personal level,a pain that never really goes away.I think thats one of the reas a lot of folks are on anti-depressants,or just feel so chronically unhappy,sometimes without anything specific in their own lives they can pinpoint it to-This,imo is one of the causes-these things you can not UNknow,however much you wish you could.

Just to clarify (again) for anyone who may be wondering, we're trying to cut down on the tedious and irrelevant political trolling and focus on the actual topic, which is the mass murder that took place in Newtown, Connecticut on Friday.

As inevitable as it is for gun control debates and political opportunism to intrude upon the subject, they have already been done to death here and in our political forums, and distract from the actual facts of the case, which are still largely indeterminate.

This being ATS, there will naturally be conspiracy theories surrounding this and similar crimes. That's fine. Most of us are here to challenge assumptions, question authority and Deny Ignorance. That will necessarily involve speculation that some people may find distasteful, but provided such speculation doesn't violate the terms & conditions, it's valid.

We have repeatedly asked that the discussion focus on the actual shooting, rather than recycled talking points, insults, sanctimonious finger-pointing, trolling and other forms of noise that don't bear on this particular crime. We have also asked that members refrain from spamming material unrelated to the subject, including rhetorical questions and comments made in obvious ignorance of the topic itself. Hence post removals and other actions as needed.

It's a fine line to walk, opinions will naturally vary regarding what belongs and what doesn't, and the thread sometimes moves very, very fast. In general, if a post doesn't involve insults, baiting, or other attempts to smother this tragedy under a blanket of write-only flames, it's probably fine. If not, we may remove it, but ask that members not take it personally if we do.

If anyone disagrees with our attempts to keep the thread focused and away from page after page of senseless political drivel, by all means send me a private message and I'll be happy to talk about it, but we do ask -- again -- that members do their best to focus on the circumstances of the crime, stay on topic and save the other stuff for other threads.

Also, should anyone see problem posts that work against discussion of the topic, please don't respond to them, but alert us and let us handle them.

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

Was that directed at me? In fact I read it only after I posted a response to you.


Why is it we should not be angry at our politicians wanting to use this incident to their advantage when we know what it is they want...yes they want to disarm us.

Yes I went to church and prayed loudly about this. It was anything but silent however. So if you want to moralize at me for not being sad enough, you got the wrong person.


Psalm 81

1 Sing for joy to God, our strength; shout out loud to the God of Jacob. 2 Begin the music. Play the tambourines. Play pleasant music on the harps and lyres. 3 Blow the trumpet at the time of the New Moon, when the moon is full, when our feast begins. 4 This is the law for Israel; it is the command of the God of Jacob. 5 He gave this rule to the people of Joseph when they went out of the land of Egypt. I heard a language I did not know, saying: 6 "I took the load off their shoulders; I let them put down their baskets. 7 When you were in trouble, you called, and I saved you. I answered you with thunder.

This is what the LORD says, he who made the earth, the LORD who formed it and established it--the LORD is his name: 'Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.' The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.
(Psalms 145:18-20 NKJV) The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, To all who call upon Him in truth. [19] He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He also will hear their cry and save them. [20] The LORD preserves all who love Him, But all the wicked He will destroy.

(Isaiah 65:24 NKJV) "It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.

Psalm 100 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.
2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Some facts:

• This was an individual who committed the massacre, not some government bureaucratic agency. NO credible evidence of anything else happening exists and all and any existing evidence supports that this was an act of one man. There's no conspiracy here. Just a disgruntled son with a mental disability who stole his mother's weapons and went apeshìt.

• Banning guns does not stop violence or murder. Perhaps the regulation of specific guns along with better security needs to be looked at but, 200 years of guns did not lead to the extinction of Americans. We prospered and we became a super power.

• It is common practice and routine protocol to stop or apprehend any suspicious individuals near an active crime scene and question them or take statements until they are satisfied that they are not involved. That does NOT mean that everyone wearing camo is involved. Nor does it mean that everyone the cops handcuff is involved.

Please people...think before you blame this on aliens or the CIA or President Obama. This is simple case of a mentally unstable 20 year old who is jealous of his older brother, that lashed out and blamed the world instead of manning up and dealing with his obstacles like an adult. Blame pussy parents who raise emo/pussy boys and blame society for not making kids accountable for their actions and behavior...and instead, think that therapy or pharmaceuticals is the answer.


Facts? Where are you pulling these so called "facts" from? FOX news? Show us your sources. For all I care right now your "facts" are just junk. Please stop living in your little perfect delusional world where everything is nice and pretty. Admit you just don't want to hear the truth because its too scary.

Doesn't suprise me one bit.

Sounds like those responsible for this will shut every witness up so they can fabricate their own version of the truth.

NOBODY who witnessed this should be told not to talk about it.

Wait for evidence of this "special knowledge". Deny ignorance. Don't feed the trolls.

People keep questioning the motive in this tragedy and it seems pretty simple to me:

The young man felt like his mother loved those kids more than him.

There is a report showing a neighbor(that I cannot find now with the ever-scrolling updates) suggesting that his mother was one to have high expectations and possibly overly demanding. He lived with her and likely had to hear the daily stories of the kids and their antics. Maybe artwork on the fridge from her students. Perhaps she even went as far as to compare how sweet some of them were unlike he was at their age. She adored them(or some of them) and therefore the children were a competition for her affection.

But, it's poor mental health that leads a person to feel this way. Many of us hear that negative voice telling us that "nobody loves me" when we're deep in the blues, but most of us get through that often by realizing that such self pity is not the way to handle our woes and that it doesn't do any good to stay in that frame of mind. When a person is truly not mentally healthy, that realization doesn't come and sometimes breeds the worst of all humanity by letting that self pity become rage and jealousy. He needed help and didn't get it and likely didn't want it either. He was alone with his pain and anger until it exploded, affecting countless lives in the process.

So welcome to ATS... I just want to know why you come here to "post the truth" since you're in the know.. anytime there is a major media frenzy people are told not to really talk to the media there is a number of valid reasons for this.. to protect those who were killed today... to protect their families from further harm ... to not cause mass confusion as anytime 2 people view the same event you will have 2 stories and most of the time they are not the same... there is a reason for why the police caution people not to talk to the media for their 5 seconds on the nightly news... but please do tell me this truth you registered to tell me since it's that important to you.

Sandy Hook Shooter’s Mother Not A Teacher At School, He Just Decided To Kill Children…

The above link goes on to list where news agencies reported the mother as a former teacher.

Yep you're right - she wasn't. Just wrong info out there.

My understanding is that she was a teacher's aide, but that's just based on the countless reports that she was involved with the school. I've read that she was involved with the school and got the teacher's aide "fact" from the radio. That certainly would muck my theory up if she was, in fact, not connected to the kids somehow, but apparently that fact is not conclusive yet.

Google directions from Hoboken, NJ to Newtown, CT

She was not commuting 1.5 hours to be an aide.

I think people just need to accept that this was a troubled man, nothing more, no conspiracies.

A few of you have reiterated that this may be a form of setup by the government. Let me tell you - if the government were desperate to disarm you - they would. More importantly they would do so without the need for meaningless deaths of young innocent children.

Well thats a big assumption.. not that i'm arguing.. i have no idea whether she did or not or if he randomly picked a place and said .. ohhh there's a good spot... however many people in this country commute 1.5 even 2 hours to work .. it's not unheard of esp in this economic landscape.. so you just never know.
