The witnesses' accounts just don't match up.
-The only two adult witnesses to actually see the shooter, Natalie Hammond and
, described him as ‘wearing a
-The police, on the other hand, say there was no mask
-The cops in the school encountering the partially supine, deceased gunman, are initially unsure if he is a victim, due to his ‘small
-One Trooper's account even described the gunman as ‘an adolescent male’
^These descriptions are kind of difficult to reconcile with an Adam Lanza that, even as malnourished as they claim, had a height of
What people claim to have heard over the intercom is another jarring inconsistency.
-Many heard solely gunshots
coming from the intercom.
-Kaitlin Roig, during a pause in the shooting, leaves the closet to get her phone, (which apparently was missing from her desk; and she later tells
police that she thinks that the shooter entered the room and took her cellphone), and hears people in the office, via the intercom ‘talking about
-Others hear arguing
-Still others hear kids crying and pleading.
-The women in the conference room, the room from which Dawn Hochsprung and Mary Sherlach had just run, which is closest
to the two, fated
classrooms, didn't hear any children, and thought that the kids were just ‘being good’
-Multiple people relate the same tale of hearing Rick Thorne, the school's custodian, either yelling at the shooter, or otherwise encountering the
-Rick Thorne himself, however, says that he never saw him. He just "smelled gunpowder", ran to the gym, and called 9-1-1.
Another statement of Thorne's definitely caused me to raise an eyebrow:
Lastly, Thorne related that as he was being escorted out of the school, he observed two adult females lying in the hallway by the office.
Thorne stated that they were near a bench and they both appeared shot. Moreover, Thorne stated that he did not recognize them, but he did notice
that one of the females was wearing an orange dress.
—Testimony of Rick Thorne
(last paragraph in-situ, below)
-Some places in the report it says that arriving officers assumed that the shooter had killed himself
, and that the police fired no
-Elsewhere it states that Lanza was ‘fatally wounded by police’
Excuse the language, but seriously … wtf?
This is the same report we're talking about. Not a news report. A police investigation report. One that people supposedly spent a year working
ATS is right about putting this topic in the [HOAX] and LOL forums.
Just not for the reasons stated.
Now for a detail:
The investigators go interview this one woman, not because she was a witness, but because they found her name on the school visitor's log. She was
there to deliver a letter to a teacher, written by her kid, apologizing for cheating on a test. According to the log, she apparently signed-out at
9:32 … directly before the first 9-1-1 call was received.
She sees a dour 60-65 year old man, dressed in dark clothing…
…who was this?
