Ahha, regarding the nun costume and purple van, I found this:
"Purple van with 2 suspects wearing ski masks one dressed in a nun's outfit, possibly related to this incident, being sought. Last seen in Danbury.
Per CSP, FBI personnel on scene."
I'm guessing that must be from the police scanner. Maybe one of them wearing a nun's outfit was how they got access to the school? Since, I'm not sure if you are all aware, but they have a visual monitoring system where the school remains locked until they see who you are and let you in.

Actually you're wrong.. It's a lot more than $200.00 and having a chief law officer in your area sign off. You go through a rigorous background check that puts a regular background check to shame. There are SEVERAL steps in the paperwork process, and you end up paying close to $20,000.00 USD by the time it is all said and done.
Actually I'm not. I stated the steps involved in the process including the background check and the only monies you have to pay to the government for the right to own a full-auto weapon is $200.00 for the federal tax.
First of all you stated that is was illegal to own fully automatic weapons in the U.S. which is completely incorrect. Then when I list the actual steps in order to own and fully automatic weapon in the U.S. you have a come back and try to make out like it is a lot tougher and more expensive than it really is.
As long as you are 21 years of age and a citizen of good standing (meaning you have never been in trouble) you will have no problems passing the background check. Sometimes the hardest part of obtaining the tax stamp is actually getting the local chief law enforcement official to actually sign off. Sometimes this would be the sheriff or the Chief of Police depending on where you live (city or county). Fortunately there is even a work-around for that thanks to BATF regulations. You can submit your paperwork and background as a corporation and you don't have to have the local cheif law enforcement officer to sign off.
I have been a police officer for 15 years and have owned several Class III firearms (full auto for those that don't know) and yes even police have to go through the same standards as any other civilian when applying for Class III status. So if you want to argue points about the truth of ownership of Class III weapons in the United States at least know what you are talking about.

IF it is true he had his brothers ID would that not suggest it may have been intentional to confuse the investigation??

Wow, what a powerful article. So what happened that made him no longer his doctor? He basically said he treated and Adam climbed out of his dark hole. Did they switch doctors?
I fear for this doctor for coming out. Pharmaceutical companies are not going to like this!!

People second guessing the professionals who have to go on to the scene and try and make sense of the mess? Yes.
Not everything is a conspiracy.
Sometimes things just are.
We need more sanity nef.... Please!!! ATS is being overrun by these theories. To the point that one member has already contacted the father who gave a speech about his daughter. Contacting him because he wasnt grieving like members here say he should. Its getting disgusting.

an interview with a victims mother has something shocking if true
killed substitute teachers car was shot up with bullet holes?!! how could that be. there was no shooting outside of the school in the official story.
any other info on this?
The classroom he chose to enter was substitute teacher Lauren Rousseau's, where he proceeded to systematically shoot everyone inside — the 14 children who investigators believe were huddled and clutching one another in fear, Rousseau and a special education teacher who happened to be in the room. Rousseau was filling in for the regular teacher, who was out on maternity leave. Rousseau had been teaching at the school for six weeks.
Lanza next arrived at teacher Victoria Soto's classroom. Soto is believed to have hidden her 6- and 7-year old students in a classroom closet. When Lanza demanded to know where the children were, Soto tried to divert him to the other end of the school by saying that her students were in the auditorium.
But six of Soto's students tried to flee. Lanza shot them, Soto and another teacher who was in the room. Later, in their search for survivors, police found the remaining seven of Soto's students still hiding in the closet. They told the police what had happened.

I have a question...can anyone explain this part of the story to me, because it's bugging me...so, Adams brother (ryan?) gets arrested , and questioned. He is described as being in camo and told a woman on the scene" I didn't do it" ....we'll ....why was he there? Why was a 20 yr old man at an elementary school at the time of the shooting? What's he doing hanging around the school? ...I don't get it? ...
now this may be reaching a bit...but...isn't that the classic scenario of the killer waiting in the crowd to see his a results? ...or ( now this is REALLY reaching) ...but what exactly did he mean by " I didn't do it" ... Does he mean he didn't do the shooting...or does he mean he didn't do what he set out to do...I didn't do it meaning, I didn't get it done....
But honestly, can anyone clarify why a 20 year old man in camo , the brother of the shooter, just happens to be hanging around the school? ..
Here are a couple of videos showing the man they pulled out of the woods. Notice he looks nothing like Ryan Lanza. The second one shows the man immediately.
Does anyone know why he was exonerated? Was he just a hunter?
