ADAM LANZA FACT SHEET: Falsehoods & Fatal Assumptions

The degree of intentional misrepresentation of the facts in the Sandy Hook Massacre by mainstream media outlets is simply mindboggling.
 
For instance, a hypothesis put forth by a young marine in which he thought he was paraphrasing his father, a pastor in Newtown Connecticut, was quickly debunked by that pastor himself, who denied his son's theory that Nancy Lanza was trying to commit Adam Lanza soon and, thus, this was the psycho's motive for dressing up as a character from Call of Duty and going on the rampage.
 
The pastor's prompt protest to FOX's so called "exclusive" scoop of his son's hearsay as "fact" was ignored of course, and, by today, this version is being offered across the globe as the sole "logical" explanation behind a baby killer's slaughter of unarmed women and children.
 
That a person so mentally deranged is clearly incapable of logical thinking doesn't seem to deter the mainstream press from asserting that looney Lanza was suddenly lucid in his final hours--even though his crime itself is obviously senseless and speaks volumes about the coward's disordered thinking.
 
In this same vein, the media's relentless characterization of a renowned scholastic failure as a "boy genius" is not only utterly laughable and an insult to intelligence, but dangerous encouragement to those copycat losers who hope to see themselves also falsely glorified.
 
Keep in mind, this lazy numbskull didn't even graduate from high school, and years later his alleged and brief stint with undergrad studies produced only a 3.26 grade-point average. A score mostly lifted by the computer-obsessed killer's A+ in one of his computer classes.
 
Sorry, a box of rocks exhibits far more wherewithal, integrity, and substance than this moronic monster ever did. Between the two, I vote for the box of rocks as the genius then. 
 
Smashing a computer is not too brilliant either
 
On this tactic it must be noted that investigators have yet to announce that it was indeed dumbhead Lanza who destroyed his computer in order to cover his online criminality. 
 
In the meantime, consider that it's not impossible his mother, upon returning from a three-day visit with her family in New Hampshire, had simply lost it when she discovered that during this entire period her game-addicted idiot of a son hadn't eaten or slept whilst playing Call of Duty, or some such single-shooting nutter program of his.
 
Many a misguided parent driven to their limits has destroyed computers and gaming consoles (whichever) in one final act of desperation, only to end up with their skull smashed in. Or, if their son was a hopelessly weak little weasel, blown to smithereens as they lay in bed sleeping.
 
Why? Because scientists have discovered that these violent videogames are as addicting as drugs or alcohol, so simply taking them away from someone so completely zonked out on them, as Lanza was, is only inviting more trouble.
 
As to the destruction of his computer's hard drive serving to completely foil a full exploration of Lanza's digital footprint: That's naïve thinking at best. Besides, from the little that is known already, skilled investigators can easily piece the rest together.
 
The so called Sandy Hook connection
 
(Yawn.) Teachers and parents in this district have emphatically and consistently denied any official relationship between Nancy Lanza and the Newtown school system. Period.
 
Are all these people lying?
 
Or is it more likely that twisted Adam Lanza gamed himself over the brink of psychosis, of which he'd been teetering for years, and was simply looking to kill people he knew for a fact would be totally defenseless?
 
After all, as soon as real "players" showed up at the Sandy Hook school, the spineless nitwit cowered out by committing suicide rather than fight them.
 
As all of his kind does when actually confronted by armed resistance.
 
Summary (again)
 
1. No motive here but insanity, any which way you look at it;
2. Uneducated, dingbat, gaming slouch on the warpath is not a "genius" by any means;
3. Only weak-minded sissies dress in killer costumes and target babies and females instead of real soldiers in uniform.
4. Killing unarmed civilians and little kids, and using your mommy's gun to do it with, fails the manhood test.
5. Ditto for sitting around all day playing silly-assed games on the computer.
 
Nuf said.

Women and Children First (Demography of the Sandy Hook Massacre)

A Crime Magazine exclusive, by Eponymous Rox
 (click link above to read without a paid subscription)

NOTE: Today's update on the tragic events in Newtown Connecticut this week supplement the other earlier posts below this one, as well as the special Crime Magazine article referenced above. For any readers who are not fully familiar with this developing story, please be sure to read those pieces too.


 
Women and Children First

It's notable that there were no adult males killed in the Sandy Hook Massacre on December 14th 2012, and some are suggesting that this might not be just a coincidence--even the children who were mercilessly butchered by Adam Lanza were mostly girls.
 
Violence against women and children is on the rise this century, both here and abroad, and, while not all mass shooters display such discriminating 'tastes' in selecting their victims, it's not unlikely that Adam Lanza did.
 
In fact, some sources say there is no indication that the disturbed youth targeted any male staff members in the school rampage, and that it's possible many of the younger male victims were actually shot when they panicked and fled from a hiding place that one of their (female) teachers had hastily secured for them.
 
That brave young woman was gunned down placing her body between the children and the shooter, by the way. As were all six of the adult females slain on this gruesome day.
 
Where, then, were all the adult males when this slaughter was in progress? Well, nobody's really saying.
 
And Superman, Thor, the Hulk, and Captain America...?

All of them also missing in action.
 
But with or without the protection of men, the overall safety and security of society's "most vulnerable" members is a pretty fair measure of just how "civilized" a civilization actually is.
 
If women and children and not safe from criminals when alone in their homes, if they're not safe in their public schools, if they're not safe on their neighborhood sidewalks, or in parking lots and shopping malls and grocery stores and movie theatres...well, that says an awful lot about the state of their nation.
 
And what it's saying isn't very positive.

Patently False
 
Media sources continue to falsely report that the principal of Sandy Hook Elementary School unwittingly allowed demented Adam Lanza into the building by overriding the brand new security system for him. 
 
The system in question is designed to activate an automatic lockdown of all the building's exits and entrances at 9:30 AM when morning classes are usually scheduled to commence.
 
Not only does it defy logic that the principal would deactivate this built in safety feature for a masked intruder, but it does a grave injustice to this selfless and courageous woman who knowingly sacrificed her own life by lunging at the gunman when he broke in.
 
In short, it's very clear that the principal did everything humanly possible to prevent Adam Lanza from gaining access to the children under her watch and care, many of whom were at that moment assembling in the auditorium and in various nearby classrooms.
 
In her desperate effort, the school's principal was aided by the school's psychologist, and both of these women were gunned down together in "execution style" in the main hallway.
 
So, in reality, investigators think Lanza probably arrived a few minutes too late to simply walk into the school unnoticed, and, thus, shattered the glass near the main entrance by calculatingly spraying it in a hail of bullets from his semi-automatic rifle.
 
They also theorize the attack was preplanned and that the heavily armed shooter may have been targeting those two particular female staffers anyway, as he reportedly had an "altercation" with them and two others just the day before, when he first attempted to illegally enter the facility.
 
These four staffers had succeeded in barring Lanza on that occasion, and so the deranged young man returned on the next day instead, with a vengeance.
 
Although Adam Lanza probably had a concealed weapon with him the day before, when he did come back again police say he was armed to the teeth, having already shot to death his mother in her bedroom, apparently while the woman was sleeping.
 
Not incidentally, the fourth female of the group that had evicted Lanza the day before the massacre survived the subsequent mass shooting event only because she hadn't actually come to work that day.
 
Not much else is known about this major fracas at this time however, because authorities are still investigating the incident.
 
Social Equality & Sociopaths
 
Someday soon, as a result of all this much-too-frequent bloodshed, and as a result of more women and children now being without a male for whom they think they can rely on daily for protection, males and females will begin to be socialized from birth in the exact same way.
 
But, until then, they're not: By and large, most females are still raised to be submissive and their male counterparts are still being raised to be aggressive--ideally as breadwinners and protectors of women and children, rather than their predators.
 
Which is to say, that the next time an event of this grievous nature occurs, (and it will) hopefully the males nearby will do more than just flee and hide with the children.
 
Because the heroics the women of Sandy Hook exhibited under fire, such as rushing the shooter to tackle and disarm him, were precisely what must be done in such extreme situations. And these acts are best performed all at once, without hesitation, and as a group rather than individually or in pairs.
 
Men too, are still much taller and stronger than women are, and although the fight or flight mode in both sexes is very strong, and the flight instinct most commonly the one that is  triggered under stress, a little training is all that is required to correct the mistaken belief that running away from a gunman is "safer".
 
In fact, running away is what that weak-minded, and very often weak-bodied, young man wants people to do. That way he not only feels more powerful than he usually does in "real life", but he can kill at liberty and in far greater numbers.
 
As was the case with 20-year-old mad gamer and psychopath, Adam Lanza.
 
Talking About Talking
 
A choked up President Obama is visiting the desecrated town of Newton, Connecticut today to offer the thousands of victims of this most recent act of senseless brutality his condolences, support, and some solace.
 
In addition, Obama has publicly vowed to open a "meaningful" dialog now about guns and violence, particularly as it pertains to the rising crime wave among the young and these now-commonplace mass assaults.
 
Discussing discussions is a good start, of course, but advocates for gun control will be the first to say that it's also a long overdue move, with too many dead having piled up during an inordinate and unjustified delay.
 
What's more, if these proposed talks fail to address the role of violent videogames in this surge of violence, and if the billion-dollar gaming industry itself is not also forced to come to the table, this will all be for naught.
 
Remember, Klebold and Harris, Jared Loughner, James Holmes, Adam Lanza...all these young mass murderers and many, many more just like them were violent video-gamers. All of these dangerous psychopaths methodically trained as expert marksmen via simulated single-shooter programs and a "harmless" little joystick.

Mother of Columbine killer prayed her son would commit suicide

Sue Klebold's son is now infamous for his participation in the Columbine Massacre of 1999, and she and her husband have remained tightlipped about that event ever since it happened. For thirteen years, keeping their heartaches and their opinions under lock and key.
But anybody who's raised children themselves, or who has even an ounce of empathy, can probably imagine the Klebolds' lasting pain, puzzlement, and ambivalence, without them having to go to the effort of expressing it.

Remember, too, that at this point in time the idea of children arming themselves with automatic weapons and showing up at school to slaughter their fellow students was a totally new and unthinkable misdeed. No one, not even law enforcement officials, expected or could have predicted such a bloodbath occurring in their district, let alone picturing their own young sons taking part in it.
Undoubtedly, Dylan Klebold's otherwise normal teenage insecurities and angst left him wide open to be so evilly swayed by his cohort Eric Harris--a raging psychopath, diagnosed as such well before the mass shooting took place. Still, for the damages both teens inflicted on that day, neither Klebold nor Harris will ever be excused or forgiven.

Their aim was too good, and they left so many victims and scars in their wake.
It was a shocking and unprecedented display of violence by young people back then, but, since that day, there have been endless copycat kids following suit. Some younger than Klebold and Harris were, and with no grievances whatsoever but an arsenal of weapons and ammo they'd secretly collected, coupled with a burning desire to outdo their teen predecessors in a sick quest to become equally reknown.

We are, perhaps, somewhat numbed by all of these tragedies by now, even if, god forbid, our own children are the perpetrators, but that was not the case in spring of 1999.

On that April afternoon, when Mrs. Klebold received the shocking news that her son was one of the Columbine shooters, she says she instantly had a vision of him, and, "While every other mother in Littleton was praying that her child was safe, I had to pray that mine would die before he hurt anyone else."
That may sound hard-hearted, but it wasn't.
"I thought that if this was really happening and he survived, he would go into the criminal justice system and be executed," Klebold's mother explained. "And I really couldn't bear to lose him twice. I gave the hardest prayer I ever made, that he would kill himself, because then at least I would know he wanted to die and wouldn't be left with all the questions I'd have if he got caught by a police bullet. Maybe I was right, but I've spent so many hours regretting that prayer: I wished for my son to kill himself, and he did."
Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris both decided to put a bullet in their heads once they realized they were surrounded by police and SWAT teams, thus ending the bloody seige of their high school in a double suicide.
