If someone on this board takes the time to peruse movies for clues like this, why couldn't the shooter of this latest crime? Why is it a "slap in the face" move by in-the-know movie directors fresh out of Illuminati academy?
The nutcase who did this perhaps went over every inch of that film after the Aurora shooting, and decided to involve something he saw in a copycat crime. I personally think it's a coincidence, but if not, it's amusing how quickly everyone jumps to the conclusion it's some diabolical plot by the movie industry.. and wasn't just found and used by the criminal himself.

Nah, its beyond weird and should be filling alot of people with RAGE, I mean come on and get real. We know who did it and there are many victims here, including the young man and his mother set up and murdered to take the fall.
Why are you defending a person who slaughtered a room full of children? What evidence do you have that someone else was involved?

I would suggest that it is highly probable that Adam Lanza has watched the Batman movie, and saw the Sandy Hook reference, and having seen that reference of his home town in the movie, it may have had some significant impact upon his thought processes?
Adam Lanza was obviously a very psychologically disturbed young man, and whatever is speculated in this thread, it must fit seamlessly into both his behaviour and his actions. There are a number of clues that will bear poignant reference to why he did what he did...
1) He was socially awkward, lacking the necessary social skills to integrate.
2) His mother removed him from school.
3) His father was absent from his life and did not want anything to do with him (why?)
4) He is described as being very bright, good with computers, but having no digital footprint like normal teenagers.
5) He shot his mother 4 times in the head as she slept.
6) Once he had collected guns from his mother's collection, he went on the road, but not aimlessly wandering. He went with purpose to the school, and deliberately targeted the children and the teachers. Like his mother, the victims at the school were shot multiple times.
7) 2 computers at home that had been smashed.
I believe his mother was the catalyst for his rage, and for his behaviour while venting it. She herself, is described as having something of a 'survivalist mentality', prepping for when the 'economy went south'. Adam was the only one remaining family member at the home they shared. Her influence upon the boy, which she apparently pushed with exacting standards, would have conditioned the lad with distrust and suspicion. I believe she had sought to condition him to her societal perception. His social awkwardness is a reflection of her influence, and he wore her distrust and suspicion of society in general like a mother-knitted jumper.
The two smashed computers will probably contain folders of his own thinking, almost like a diary, and in speculation, I would think that he prized them for his privacy, but that his mother somehow gained access to the information therein, and they argued over the content? This invasion of his privacy is probably what killed his mother. He shot her 4 times in the head, which indicates an emphatic coup de grace upon his mother. After that he smashed the computers as no longer having any significance for him, having been sullied by his mother's prying eyes. At this juncture, he has already decided he was going to die that day, but not without making a point against society. What then is the connection between him, his mother, and Sandy Hook Elementary School?
I believe the answer lies in his mother withdrawing him from school? As well as having a 'survivalist mentality', I believe she was a conspiracy theorist with extreme perceivings. I believe she distrusted the school curriculum, and what was being taught. This is where the connection is made in Adam Lanza's mind...lies and distrust, his mother's influence.
After killing his mother, he then chose 3 more of her 6 guns, which indicates a premeditated determination to inflict as much harm as possible. His goal now was to hurt the community he lived in, and by that relation society in general, he was going to make the most emphatic point of hate he could by attacking that which the community prized most above all...its children. He himself did not view them as children, but as helpless victims of an evil system...he was going to set them free, and he did with chilling and appalling violence.
If the police had not arrived at the school while he was there, the saiga shotgun was in the car, locked and loaded for more killing elsewhere. He was not going to allow the police to take him alive in order to face a trial, nor was he going to allow himself be killed by them, for in his mind, that would have been a form of retributive punishment. By killing himself, he delared a big F**K YOU! to us all! We can vent all the rage and anger towards him all we want, but we can never have any cathartic release in punishing him. Adam Lanza died as a cold and callous sociopath venting a pent up rage against society from the inculcated programming of his mother's warping influence.
Of course, all this is my speculation, my thinking out aloud. It may not describe exactly the casus belli of his motive and actions, but I do think it is on the right track. Peace to all.

That's referring to some town called Sandy Hook - is it the right location on the map...?
...just where are you getting this information?

You will find patterns and co-incidences for things if you start to really try to find them, all of a sudden everything becomes symbolic and you try to make patterns and facts fit the observations, its outrageous. Its much harder to ask yourself real questions like these to find the real truth than to jump to rediculous conclusions. Sure, it may well be a conspiracy of some form maybe to regulate gun control, but do you really think that somebody was going to go to the trouble of putting a reference to it in a Batman movie that came out years ago? thats a pretty big stretch if you ask me. So who organised for this map that nobody can see in the movie to be placed there for some overly paranoid person with far too much time on their hands to find many years after the movie came out after some massacre happened in a place called Sandy Hook when there are probably quite a few places named Sandy Hook around the place.
You guys need to search google for "Illuminati code of ethics" ..conspiracy, mabye.
Come on people, employ some logic and reason when making statements. The first pile of replies were just like ''oh wow, theres a map that says Sandy Hook in the Batman movie, this is DEFINITELY a HUGE conspiracy!''
Against my better judgement I've decided to post on this thread to congratulate you on one of the very few sensible posts on the thread.
Apologies if I've missed more but you seem to the only person who has hinted at a very obvious question for the conspiracy theorists.......why would an orchestrated massacre like this have 'whodunit' style clues in a Hollywood movie?
Should we be hunting down the prop man or are we to believe that TPTB somehow slipped this clue into the film without the makers knowledge?
Shouldn't you be investigating every single gun massacre in recent US history as it seems that some on here cannot accept that mental illness can lead people to do very bad things.
