Newtown Church Evacuated


www.nbcconnecticut.com

St. Rose of Lima Church in Newtown has been evacuated. State police have responded to the church, according to NBC reporter Audrey Washington.

A noon mass was being held at the Roman Catholic Church at 46 Church Hill Road.

Witnesses at the mass said police entered the church and told parishioners that a threat had been made against the church and the surrounding area and that everyone had to leave immediately.

More than a dozen State Troopers armed with assault rifles entered a home next to the church, according to Washington.

This is really just awful. Who would do this to these people at such a time? Also, I have to wonder what sort of threat would prompt such a response. There's live feed footage right now at the additional link.

I think that the media is partially responsible for all this. Without the kind of coverage they give these events, so much of the horrible things happening in Newtown might not be happening.

The sad reality is this is the world we live in.

Rather than find something new, we feel we must hang onto the thing we have invested in.

People (news, citizens, the money machine) are vested in the story and unwilling to move on to whatever is next.

Unless it was a bomb threat, there was no reason to enter the church. Dozens of troopers could easily create a perimeter.

It is odd that they were going in searching the church. What were they looking for? What type of threat was it I wonder.

i dont know but obama is supposed to be there tonight around 7pm.......maybe something to do with him?

also i just had a thought, they entered the house next door. i think maybe someone at the church hoped on the neighbors wifi and made a threat.

maybe to get out of church early?

Seriously there is something amiss about this whole thing.A teacher that never worked there shot dead by her own kid, a guy that decided to go after kids and kill as many as he could,clips of police going after people in the woods that didn't happen,a rifle that mysteriously goes from the trunk of a car to inside with the shooter,people witnessing other people involved that supposedly didn't happen,and on and on and on.Come on already,what is up with this?

What's up is the shoddiest case of Journalism that I've seen in a very long time. They aren't checking their sources or facts, just reporting things on a whim. They are getting a ton of stuff wrong and we are seeing the result. Stories over facts, anything to get ratings. It's a sad day for "Journalism", a dying trade.

Thats sick. People can't even grieve in peace. What kind of person or people would sink to such depravity? 20 children are dead, babies really. And some very brave souls who tried to protect them. Cant people just leave the poor people of this town in peace to grieve? I wont say come to terms with it as one can never come to terms with it. Learn to live with what has happened? In time yes, though it might take a decade. But come to terms with it? Never. This sort of behaviour is not helping at all.

Yes, I just saw that the Pres. is supposed to go there today, so that's interesting. Might explain the heavy response?

Whilst i agree the coverage is excessive it is too simplistic to lay the blame at their door.

There are some sad, sick people out there and behaviour such as this is entirely their responsibility. To lay the blame upon the media removes that blame from the responsible individual and therefore encourages such activity.

The latest Tweet from Breaking News via NBC is saying they have the all clear. That's a relief.

Oh no, I definitely blame the individual for doing such a thing but two questions. 1. would he have chosen to go to the school and mass shoot if we hadn't seen in the past the kind of attention it gets? 2. Would we see westboro baptist church and threats like the one in this thread being made if news coverage wasn't what it is?

Do you know how much troopers make $? Why the hell in gods name would a town pay for a dozen troopers to maintain a perimeter at a church for hours? would this be done every time something like this happens?

Did they ever find out who called in the bomb threat?
