Ya know i've held my tongue long enough on this. So here goes, warnings, and bans be dammed.
What gives you, me or anyone the right to DEMAND information on an active investigation? NOTHING there is no reason for any of us to be sitting here
DEMANDING anything of the police in this matter. It is still an active investigation, ACTIVE for those who don't understand means that the police are
NOT DONE sifting through a mountain of information and trying to make sense of it, when they are done with that they will go to the FAMILIES to give
them an idea of what happened to their loved ones and then and ONLY THEN release it to us. Until then demanding answers, doing our own looking into
people's death, SSI, birth records etc is really a violation of THEIR RIGHTS... (maybe everyone missed the parts where I raced down there that day
LIGHTS BLAZING, catch it now?)
I am sick and tired of armchair quarterbacks trying to think they somehow have a God given right to every drab of information that has to do with an
active case, they hold info for a reason, it's called keeping the integrity of the investigation intact, and they are not going to release it early
just because you, Cluesforum (who you seem to be parroting, if not I apologise) or anyone else like this professor thinks they are entitled to it.
The MEDIA SCREWED IT UP AGAIN, that's where the focus should be, why did they have to be so quick in on this that they couldn't even get the name of
the kid right, or think they were talking to a dead person, or even couldn't get the fact that people were dying right for the first TWO HOURS of the
incident.. (Yes people, for the first two hours before this went national our LOCAL NEWS was reporting that a teacher shot themselves in the foot,
SHOT THEMSELVES IN THE FOOT) This is where the problem is, the MEDIA not the investigators that are trying their best to make sense of all of this,
not the state government who is completely blindsided (don't forget Sandy wasn't that long ago and Fairfield County CT was HIT HARD.) The state's
resources were already spread very thin, and this just added to the fact that Connecticut as a whole was ill prepared for QUADRUPLE DISASTERS IN LESS
THAN A TWELVE MONTH PERIOD, but everyone just ignores that, everyone thinks they can bully everyone into getting information.. Doesn't work that
Gods i'm mad now... this just doesn't end... I'm not saying don't question the Media, by all means, they messed up and in a big way, but stop with
this crap about actors and kids still being alive and huge government conspiracies to take your guns, I don't think (at least I sincerely hope not)
that this was a pre-planned situation, I think that it was more than likely ONE OR TWO AT MOST that pulled this off, maybe to prove a point .
What people on here also don't realize is we have stories on this issue that ARE NOT ONLINE, they are on the Radio, the local papers with in print
articles that they don't put on the web, PEOPLE TALKING as we go about our business. We know that the Big 4 in our state really dropped the ball,
and the citizens here are directing that anger at them, to the point that Channel 3 issued an apology the next day for getting the story wrong in a
haste to get it on first.. That's not online, that was a print ad in our paper.. But try even so much as discussing it here, everyone is in such a
feeding frenzy because of the "Gubbment is gonna take my GUNS" angle that they are failing to see the lives that are being hurt more by continuing
to push this and push this and push this, what's it going to take to get people to STAND DOWN? Parents starting to kill themselves because they
can't stand to see the memories of their loved ones trashed anymore? Their reputations completely destroyed because ATS members called them fakes
without ONE SHRED OF SOLID EVIDENCE just here-say and conjecture..
Back up, slow down, there are things to be questioned in this incident yes, a lot of them, most point at the media and how badly they handled it...
Some point to the fact that there may have been another person involved, who knows, and when the FINAL REPORT comes out, WHICH IT HAS NOT YET, repeat
that 5 times, WHICH ITHAS NOT YET, maybe we will get some answers to some lingering questions. But if I were Col. Stebbins, I'd be thinking that
releasing the information to vultures like you would just fall upon deaf ears, as you'd probably find something wrong there too, because why? YOU
WANT TO FIND SOMETHING WRONG... You heard me, you seem to WANT TO FIND FAULT with everything and everyone (this is directed at ALL the NO KIDS CROWD,
not one person in particular)
Well it just sucks to be so paranoid that you can't let families grieve without badmouthing them..
