Ummm...You forgot to add that he was probably "medicated" possibly a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor?.......hmmmm? Which begs the question...If there is a link between these shootings and happy pills, why the rash of EA's that will likely push more of these happy pills down more and more throats? Perhaps to increase the percentages? Obviously the experiment's trials were a raging success, so on to full implementation...

Why? Not because I have a stake in the outcome... but because I feel many people simply have to understand something which many (apparently) take for granted...
from the moment this event went "national" media reported on ANYTHING... every rumor, every half-assed speculation, every something or other overheard as officials walked by a media staffer.
THAT is why you never got a straight story... it's because the media's "journalists" now only report what has been sanctioned and accepted by officials as "what the people "should" know" rather than the facts.
Every long arm became a machine gun, every round became an armor piercing explosive tip flechette, the shooter became Hitler and Satan's love child, and anyone involved became the subject of controversy and suspicion. Every passer-by mentioned in police chatter became a potential child murderer...
Now, as the investigation takes place in earnest...the details form the original gore and fear-porn fest don't match. Well, what did you expect? Did you expect the so-called "news" to have any clue about what happened? Did you think they would keep there most eye-catching and inflammatory notions out of circulation?
This is why subsequent to the event the reporting all turned to the devastation and pain of the grieving. There was no more room for risk-free confabulation....
All I ask is that as we discuss this we take heed.... I can almost guarantee there is more we will never know than what we will be 'told' by anyone.
Wanna hear the boring version?
A troubled recluse adolescent boy, utterly broken by the prospect of being committed, snapped and punished his mother and anything she was associated with. He took his pain and spread it around in a bloody massacre.
The Media jumped at the tragedy, and the political cabal "made use" of the tragedy - as they always do.
No conspiracy, no "plan," just media and political opportunistic manipulation of public perception.....

Meanwhile, I have to get going. I just got a message that three armed women teachers shot a guy named Adam Lanza in a classroom. I’m heading over to check it out.
