Lsherm: Fox news just broke the "assault rifle" cherry. Apparently an M4, but that that with a grain of salt. Both weapons were registered to the mother of the shooter, and unless she's a SWAT member, it was a semiautomatic rifle.


He was clearly carrying an AK47 and a Glock.

To unLurked in the last thread: Holy shiat man, I can't imagine having to deal with that wait. I can't imagine being one of those parents...fark. Just...yea, no one can tell you how you should feel. There's no way to deal with this emotionally in any manageable way. I'm glad your kid was okay; I hope you guys find some way to get through this.
 
2012-12-14 03:40:56 PM  
Listen, you all can blame the news channels for jumping the gun and sensationalizing things but you all are still watching the news, right? They only do it because they know that's what you want.

Maybe we can all just sit back a while and wait until the real story comes out?
 
2012-12-14 03:40:58 PM  
So, every news source in the world has been posting the picture of the wrong guy for hours on end.

GREAT JOB MEDIA! Way to totally just forego old rules of journalism that would prevent such a thing. Go go internet-era instant news!

If that's true, good LORD did the news outlets fark up


What a farking day to be Ryan Lanza.

"You shot a bunch of people and we're showing everyone your face saying you shot a bunch of people"
"NO I DIDN'T WHAT THE FARK?!"
"Oops yeah our bad you didn't."
"Good, glad that's settled."

GORDON: Hey is it too soon in this thread to nail these dead children to crosses in the name of politicizing gun control?


How about we politicize gun control using the victims from Aurora this week, and we tack the kids from CT up on the cross next week?

Like it's not valid to talk about gun control when 18 kids get shot in a rampage? Which way does gravity go in your universe?

New report is 20 children dead and 6 adults via the current news conference.

Our ability to harm one another far exceeds our ability to reason and communicate with one another.

This is the natural result of a primitive brain coupled with efficient, technologically-advanced weaponry.

Damn you, humanity.

Very sad day. My thoughts are with those with friends and loved ones affected by the shooting.

After seeing the governor speak, a little piece of me died inside when he didn't call out the media on giving people space and to speak only with officials on the tragedy. Not angry with the governer, but sad that this issue is never brought up by those who can put it in the proper spotlight.

Does anyone have a good link on what's going on re: the man in custody? Is it indeed his (the dead shooter's) brother? Is he a suspect or simply being questioned? Is he the one who was reported as being seen fleeing the school?

mjohnson71: Didn't take long.While I was in the break room watching a replay of Obama's press conference, one of the rednecky warehouse guys said "Farking fake tears!" before storming out.


Is Sandy Hook a scandal yet?

eddievercetti: With this and what happened in China, is there nothing to help the mentally unstable at all?


I think in many cases no one really knows how insane they are. They walk around going about their daily life and seem normal, maybe a bit weird but nothing alarming and then one day they do something like this.

Did CNN or any other tv news post the facebook picture of the guy? Some people said they did(that facebook post itself for example) but I never saw it.

shower_in_my_socks: CNN reporting that shooter's brother found dead in Hoboken.

I thought his bro was in custody, or is this a different sibling? So he killed his mom, his bro is dead in another city. WTF just happened? Maybe the brother committed suicide when he got the news.


Don't worry, I'm sure the major news outlets will clear that up.

I really farking hate 24-hour news. They're going to jump to Facebook with what they THINK is the name of the maniac and photos of people having nothing to do with it will be put all over the news.

I am confused by all the comments about mental health care. I really don't think someone who is so disturbed that they would contemplate mass murder is going to seek professional help even in a country with more accessible or socialized healthcare.

Some people are just going to snap and do horrible things. When those people snap in a society where violence is glorified and guns are freely available, worse things are going to happen than in other societies. I think that's the problem. American society is not particularly healthy. People are conditioned to towards violence and guns. That worsens the impact of someone having a mental breakdown because they are more pre-disposed to more violent actions.

That's my theory, which I am totally unqualified to put forth.

There is no proper day for politics. Politics is a part of everything we do. If we were there or at the funeral, there is something to be said about not talking about something like that, but this is an internet posting board for chrissakes. Deal with it.

Hopefully he did. Don't waste the tax dollars prosecuting him.

Popcorn Johnny: Moonfisher: Ok, they are now saying Ryan Lanza is alive and in custody, that his younger brother Adam was the shooter and is dead.

No, Ryan Lanza is dead and his brother is being held for questioning.


-Listen Betty, don't start up with your Ryan Lanza shiat again.

-Oh really, Vernon? Why pretend, we both know perfectly well what this is about. You want me to have an abortion.

I'm calling that image a hoax. There were a ton of fake Lanza accounts created today. Post an update, arrange a comment or two, then screenshot.

Hell, it could have been done in photoshop.

Give it a day, real-time news is never accurate nor complete. It's like relying on interns for bug-reports.

except in, what, four of the past few shootings, they had been diagnosed as mentally ill and had sought help, but that never went anywhere?
 
2012-12-14 03:43:54 PM  
Obviously, schools and breeding are at fault here. Guns are a sacred right, education and procreation are not. Do away with public schools and stop having children, and those bullets pass harmlessly into the landscape.

get real: Brenda Lebinski was among the anxious parents outside the school, looking for her 8-year-old daughter.
"I saw her and it was the happiest moment of my life," she said.


As a parent I would hope I would show empathy instead of joy. Yes, be happy and also express sadness.

fark you. My kids were in that school. I stood therer and held my wife while armed officers stormed the building. I stood there and waiting and waited and waited. I stood there and watched them bring out one line of kids after another.

When I saw my daughter and then my son. it was the happiest day of *my* life. So take your sanctimonious self righteous bullshiat and shove it up your ass.

//my little girl knew at least 3 or 4 of those dead kids and my wife was their Troop leader. Of course we are sad, you asshole.


EXACTLY THIS!!!!! I can't even imagine the complete terror someone would feel not knowing if their baby was alive or dead.
