Horror in Connecticut


On Friday, Adam Lanza (20) stormed into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut and killed 20 children.

He began his day fighting with his mother, who he shot in the face with a gun she had legally bought. He then headed over to the kindergarten where his mother taught. It was initially thought that Lanza was allowed into the school because they recognized him, but investigators are now saying they think he forced his way in.

He then shot the the school principal, a school psychologist and three other teachers who were holding a meeting, killing them all and wounding one other person.

After that he walked into a kindergarten class and opened fire killing 18 children and their teacher. Two additional children died in the hospital.

A school custodian ran through the school warning about the shooter, and someone else managed to get on the PA system letting the rest of the school know something was wrong.

Lanza then shot himself in the head.

Lanza was described as shy, disturbed, and autistic, but also brilliant.

Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Shimon Peres and other world leaders sent their condolences to President Obama following this senseless massacre.

  1. Instead of crying crocodile tears, Obama should have spoken in support of the poor brother, Ryan Lanza who was handcuffed, photographed, misreported by the hysterical press, and will now suffer trauma as a result. For several hours, Ryan's photo was plastered all over the media instead of the psycho murdering brother. Mistaken identity = a ruined life. WHo's addressing this?

  2. Caryn Lipson says:

    Has anyone considered that he might have been taking anti-depressants? There's a black box suicide warning on them and they have been linked to violence. Many school shootings were done by people on these drugs. Just one of many articles on the subject. http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/mad-in-america/201101/psychiatric-drugs-and-violence-review-fda-data-finds-link
