I've been following the tragedy in Connecticut with everyone else and stunned at the new lows man is capable of reaching. The more we learn about the
details and the specifics relating to the killer, his weapons and his behavior that day the more I'm almost thankful it wasn't worse. It sure could
have been. I'm anxious to know, for example, why he left a Saiga Shotgun in his car. I was once offered one of these in a firearms trade and almost
took him up on it. I've always wished I had, in hindsight. The shotgun is like a 12 gauge AK-47. Quite literally. It's the AK- platform with magazine
feed and semi-automatic function in 12 gauge chambering.
The details I am reading don't leave me with some nagging thought of conspiracy or that more than 1 guy did this thing. If another did, we won't have
long to wait to learn....as no one capable of doing this will be mentally capable of just fading back into the woodwork now to never be heard from
again. Someone not broken by it would likely act out worse and soon. I don't buy the 2nd or more guy theories anyway though and that brings me to the
ENOUGH WITH 'IT WAS THE GOVERNMENT!'
That is of course my opinion, but I'm really getting tired of seeing EVERY SINGLE depraved tragedy and example of evil in the world put at the feet of
civil servants. It's absurd, unfair and bordering on DEMENTED.
Like many, I have family in the military. Some have done some wild and classified things too...or so I hear rumors..
In various circumstances in
life, I've met federal agents and a few intelligence professionals too. Interesting people ..some of them. Anyway.... I have NEVER... ONCE....met
anyone in Federal Service that could put multiple rounds into the screaming face of a 6 or 7 year old child...let alone over a dozen of them....and
keep DOING IT. I've never even met anyone who CAME CLOSE to that level of psychopath and I did meet one I felt disturbed and almost dirty afterward.
Some bad people out there....but NOT bad LIKE THIS.
This wasn't CIA or Spetnaz or GSG-9.. NO ONE who can reach that level of refined training and mental as well as physical cutting edge ..with all the
mental strength it requires to GET there...would be so warped as to be able to do what was done here. I just don't buy it...and again, I have met a
few who would have been in the circles that'd be aware of such evil IF it existed at that level. It doesn't. It NEVER HAS in those circles. Not at
THIS level. Not at this type of pure Evil.
I don't know why, for some, it's easier to blame a shadowy world government for everything that goes wrong or every evil event that happens. Perhaps
it's that blaming a controlled process, however corrupt, assumes there are limits and a way to stop it somewhere ...when in reality, no such thing
exists. There is no limit to how bad these can get.....when we must admit no one is controlling or "causing" it to happen.
I had to get this off my chest though because I'm sick in general of seeing everything to wear a Uniform either Police or Military being run down and
trashed but this? This just crossed all lines of human decency. To suggest anyone who left that scene and is out there today had anything to DO with
those murdered kids....and did it for a paycheck? Is almost mentally ill in my opinion.
Limits HAVE to exist SOMEWHERE
for how far the paranoia goes beyond the well reasoned and logical 'paranoid caution' we all have to live
with these days for the various things which ARE very much happening in the world around us ...and the outright breaks with reality events like this
represent. This was a moment...or series of them..where evil reigned. It wasn't a conspiracy. Let's just mourn the lost children....and not try and
out-do each other with wild theories of what 3 letter agency did it. (sigh)
Just 2 cents tossed out from a mildly flummoxed Rabbit.
