I do not remember reading about the Catholic church he attended mutilating genitals. I am talking about, in this post, that they may be a connection between these specific shootings. All ended in suicide. All were medicated though.

Simply suggesting that the hate religion preaches might be a motivation isnt unreasonable. It would make alot more sense than "computers".

Maybe you consider the gential mutliation of infants to be "good moral parenting", but i would disagree. With almost half of the nation praying to a magical bearded man in the sky... having the school raise the children seems like a step forward. I dont see this "moral decay of society" you speak of.

yes im quite sure that circumcision led him off the deepend..........

do you even listen to yourself?

and im not surprised that you believe that the school system doing the child rearing is preferable.......god forbid you ever have kids......

The response, if not simply trolling, is a direct connection to why children will turn to games, TV, friends at school or older influential people on 'the internets' as was described a few posts back. If you think it is not dangerous, please read the following article regarding Dillon Cossey.

He had a plan, not a half-cocked scheme. In this case the mother supplied him with guns. Go thing it was stopped. But here he is connected half way around the world. That person was Pekka-Eric Auvinen who performed the Jokela school massacre. 9 dead and 12 injured. Another SSRI case and real killer.

Cossey also tried to enlist a 'buddy' who for months just thought it was talk.


He was caught the same day as the day another one tried and shot 4. Asa Coon. Amatuers in the eyes of the ones I listed. No real plan just scared and trying to be bigger than life not take as many as possible.

These are the misguided. The slackers. The attention getters. The mommy did not give you enough love crowd. They try and the gun jams. They cannot in the end finish the plan and kill themselves so many allow themselves to be caught also but they would have done it given chance.

I am talking about those who do it to do it. To feel it. Not to gain from it. Death is the only outcome.

Looks like an FBI instructor confirms the latest leak about Lanza that the local police did not like.


The goal has become to be bigger and more horrible than the last incident for many potential mass shooters that look to previous atrocities for perverted inspiration, according to threat assessment experts. “There is a notion of ‘I need to be more well-known, more recognized and more deviant than the last person,’” said Larry Barton a threat assessment teacher at the FBI Academy and a professor of management at The American College in Bryn Mawr, Pa.

One common trait for many mass shooters or bombers is that they study previous attack strategies and attempt to perfect them. Virginia Tech massacre shooter Seung-Hui Cho studied the Columbine High School shootings; Northern Illinois University shooter Steven Kazmierczak is known to have studied the Virginia Tech shooting. game.

I've played violent fps for over 15 years.

I don't want to hurt anyone.

But then again I don't take psyche meds.

you are demonstrating the problem,( copycatting and "competition"), but then you jump to a boogeyman culprit to explain it away

the sad truth ?

humans have a profound capacity for cold blooded killing, for no good reason at all, just pure evil

I understand the cold truth and your statement

humans have a profound capacity for cold blooded killing, for no good reason at all, just pure evil...

Yet they all do it for different reasons but there is much in common. From there I took only those that committed suicide and found there was a pattern to the time frames as well as connections to each other. In some instances there were pairs and in some instances they were in other countries. I did not try to push anything just wanted to see if anyone else saw this pattern.

One in the US and one somewhere else. Problem is that no one even read the thread, they looked at the title and posted a thought. This is what we as people usually do...act without want, need or thought...just to be first or to knock someone else down.

I am not introducing a boogeyman, I want to know where they hang out.

The most awesome thing about doing it for real

the graphics are amazing!!!

the downside to doing it for real

you don't respawn

Aiming a real firearm is no where near as easy as aiming a polygon mesh.

Recoil. No infinite ammo. Actual real ballistics. You don't respawn if you are get killed. No hollywood effects like jumping off walls,flips,ultra-silent silencers,free weapons that magically appear/spawn etc(ha! ha!).

You "defeat" a polygon mesh. nothing. Pat yourself on the head. Good frag.

You kill a real human being. 25 to life,life sentence, or lethal injection.

Unless your CIA,Blackwater,massad,ISI,MI6,etc Then nothing happens.

another 'video games is bad' thread
why not point blame at where it belongs: at the persons themselves, they would have probably did this on or off meds, whether or not they play video games or not, get over it!!!

If you read the thread, in the first paragraph i state....

My findings have unfolded a contest of sorts between these shooters but the question is how they were chosen. Each one is having a greater effect. Similarities across the board but one thing ties all of them together. The internet. Something ‘pushed’ each of these cases . Children were killed that day and families were shattered. This we know. But it was not the guns or video games. Please look at Mr Lanza so we can identify the next one on the list…and share when we have that feeling.

Read before you write. None of you have even addressed the actual thread, only the title. For the last time, I found a connection. Screw it. If you do not have the attention span to read less than 1000 words you could never understand what I found.

edit on 27-2-2013 by esdad71 because: (no reason given)

The compare this to the rapist or sadistic killer. They can look all they want. Kill a cat.....a the internet all day.On a basic level, they want to be accepted. So when someone does they can be manipulated, pulled or made to something one would normally not do. A video game does not create killer not does it hone the skill of killing...but for some it is not enough. When that happens, you have a Sandy Hook like a killer who kills becuase it cannot be controlled or must prove something ot whatever the reason. Sick evil.

Well I've been playing the Mechwarrior series of games for the better part of fifteen years now, guess it's time for me to jump in a giant walking tank and go on a terror spree. Or at least according to your argument.

Stop making weak arguments, leave video games alone and start placing the blame squarely where it should be, at the feet of the parents/guardians or they themselves.

ETA: Is it impossible to fathom that some people are just psychologically unbalanced down to the core?

The connection between all shootings is conspiracy.

Somewhere in all these events is the effect afterwards of an agenda, and usually a conspiracy theory, talk of inconsistencies and emotional/irrational response to the event itself.

I am not blaming video games. I am saying that is what they emulate. It is the next logical step. If someone wants to kill, they are an outlet for fantasy. Like porno for rapists. However, eventually, they will want to know what it is like for real. The MSM is blaming games.

I am saying that there is a link between all of the shooters in some capacity with communications/computers/forums and it is coming to light.

My son has play Halo since he could hold a controller and he is going to graduate high school at 16. Does this mean I should worry, now. I am stating it is an outlet for those who are sick enough to carry out an atrocity like this.

Wish some of you would read more than the title of the OP sometime.

It is April 22nd. I predicted that something would happen in this time frame. It fits the cycle and it is ramping up. Hopefully this is another one that will be stopped but it again shows they are watching....

Im from Leiden, here is the thread i started. Maybe there indeed is a connected network of shooters, because were a european country and the FBI, a national agency, is involved in this.

Sorry but if anyone thinks there may well be a connection between video games and school shootings then YOU are the one people and society in general should be worried about.

Not yet, suspect in custody is not the one who posted the threat. They cant crack his encoding so they dont know where he posted from, no ip-adres no nothing. Dont know which school he is talking about and hes still on the loose...

press-conference later tonight.

Im a little scared cause six days from now we are having queensday and the prince is becoming king that day also, queen is stepping back. Will be millions of people out on the streets, any shooter could have a field day on the 30th, like a kid in a candy shop.
