The kids profile leads me to suspect a vengence motive, like maybe payback for being mistreated.
But then you see location. He didnt even know these ppl but choose this target specifically. Why?
The motive that fits his profile doesnt fit the location or methodology.
No real apparent motive for Lanza that's true, but if you look at the political motives and muse on what target(s) could promote 100% revulsion,
horror and extreme outrage from the public, in terms of advancing a political agenda..a school full of children being slaughtered is hard to beat.
(you know what i mean)
If i were a cold blooded, cynical scumbag sociopath, a politician for example, who for reasons yet unknown had a political objective of separating
Americans from their rights to weapons, there would be no 'better' target than children to forment a wave of outcry demanding gun controls.
Just as 9/11 formented outrage in Americans, and caused them to essentially demand retaliation against 'the terrorists', which led to over a decade
of full on warfare in the Middle East, i believe the same is hoped for in this situation...the public demanding to be relieved of their rights and
weapons...and asap too.
An old folks home would be a second choice target, but wouldn't have the same emotional impact as killing children.
There's a motive here, but it isn't revenge.
Officialdom doesn't care the OS is like a Swiss cheese. The 9/11 OS is also a Swiss cheese, but that hasn't held up or hindered the agenda of
dissolving freedoms and rights, one bit.
The flakey OS in this massacre likewise won't make a difference to the agenda either (whatever it ultimately is, but a gun free citizenry looks to be
it to me).
Who was it who once said 'The most effective way to install tyranny, is to make the people demand it'...i think we're seeing that being played out
