Suuure, Daily Mail. Must be a slow 'news' day, eh?

I like that the cops noted that he participated in discussion involving "gaming, homosexual fantasies, and day-to-day activities."  Isn't gaming a day-to-day activity for most 20 year-olds?
 
2014-01-16 08:37:40 AM  
I think he was using one of those voice maskers.

Why the fark would he have that?
 
2014-01-16 08:38:32 AM  
It doesn't sound that crazy... maybe making a few leaps based on assumptions and a basic lack of scientific understanding, but that would only qualify Lanza to be a leader of the Tea Party, not "crazy".

Aspergers kids often talk like that, with the precise pronunciation of words.

WTF? He still used Real Player? He really was off his rocker.

He seems to have the same kind of anti-civilization talk as Ted Kaszinski.

Because he was a crazy, paranoid weirdo?

If only he'd been the 8th caller and won those dragster tickets, Newtown may never have happened...
 
2014-01-16 08:46:47 AM  
I think the evidence showing his computer activity is far more disturbing.
Why the hell was he still using RealPlayer?
 
2014-01-16 08:48:28 AM  
That's impressive. He was very intelligent and well thought out, and actually touching on deeper issues that cause people to snap; hell, touching on deeper issues within our modern society that isolate all of us. That's amazingly insightful for someone that did what he did, that kind of makes it worse.

Is...is that an actual pocket protector? Really? Jeeezus, dude, at least try not to get bullied. I mean, the three-sizes-too-big shirt, stupid haircut, and perpetual deer-in-headlights stare aren't helping either, but the pocket protector really completes the whole "bully me" ensemble.

Buy it was CRUCIAL to our Freedomz that this damaged unit had free access to an assault weapon, ammo and plenty of range time under his belt.

Yeah.

Totally worth it.

Alright, can everyone let Newtown go already? Yes, it was a tragedy, Yes, it stripped some CT residents of their rights, Yes, it sucks. No, mental health will never be a mainstream topic in current politics. It doesn't have enough "show-boat-ability" to it.

Yes, because a semi automatic rifle is the same thing as an assault weapon.  Come on man, stop being such a trolly dumbass.

No, he didn't. His mother did. She didn't secure them very well.  We could pursue her for negligence causing a public danger, but...

I know this is wayyyy outside the box thinking, but how about we focus on helping and treating the mentally ill?

Mentally ill guy shoots up VT
Mentally ill guy shoots up political rally
Mentally ill guy shoots up grade school
Mentally ill guy shoots up movie theater
Mentally ill guy shoots up my floor on the Navy Yard

There have been for a really long time, sadly. It ranges from "the whole thing was staged so that Obama could take away our guns!" (No children died) to "Jews did it" (Children were killed by Israeli commandos). I'm not joking.

Lanza was a patsy. The whole thing was conceived and paid for by the executive committee at the Brady Campaign.
It was a false-flag operation done with the intent to whip up anti-gun fervor and get firearm confiscation laws passed.

I'll bite, by "had free access" you mean accessing weapons by killing the legal owner of those weapons, his mother? Really don't let the facts get in the way of your trolling.

I thought that was common knowledge from about a week after the shootings.  A friend of mine claimed it was a false flag (he got it from Alex "Crazy...I'm just f-in crazy" Jones).  I heard it from several other sources, and once...and this one really shocked me...during a discussion between customer and salesperson at the assault rifle counter at Bass Pro Shops.  This was before the memorial even happened.

The two aren't mutually exclusive, you know.

Yes, we do need better mental health care in this country, absolutely.  But that's not a sufficient answer to the problem of gun massacres.  First off, even the best mental health care system in the world can't predict when any given individual is going to snap, particularly those who have never sought any treatment.  Moreover, under current laws, even mentally ill people seeking and receiving treatment aren't restricted from purchasing or owning guns - in most cases it takes being involuntarily committed or declared mentally unfit by a court, which is a pretty high bar.

Don't forget he's a ginger. They have no souls.
You know, he just has a very punchable face.
/So, the story is that some creepy weirdo called a radio show and ranted about chimpanzees and he might be the crazy f***er who shot up a school. Jesus Christ, the mail is fricken idolizing this guy.

Wait, Bass Pro shops have a dedicated "Assault Rifle Counter". That must be right next to the "Most Dangerous Game" video game where you can hunt real people! I heard that there are 2 school shooting levels "Columbine" and "Newtown".

Where did you get your PhD in psychology from good sir? Are you saying that a legally sane person couldn't commit such a crime? If so, please STFU and GTFO.

Bruce Campbell: Doc Daneeka: But that's not a sufficient answer to the problem of gun massacres

It is one cause.  Having the means is another cause, since without the means, the event could not occur.

Events can have multiple causes.

Again, I am not arguing that we need a better mental health care system, but that is not an answer to the problem of gun violence.  As I said, in most cases it takes being involuntarily committed or deemed unfit by a judge to restrict a person's gun rights.  In some cases a court-issued restraining order will also work.  But these don't apply for the shooters you named.  Even if they were all receiving treatment, fantastic treatment, they would all still be able to have access to guns.  And let's not regard better mental health treatment as some kind of magical panacea.  It's not 100%.  Most mental illness can never really be cured, and sometimes even medication isn't completely effective at controlling it.

Besides all of that, the vast majority of firearm killings in the US are committed by people who are not mentally ill.

DSM-VI will be coming out in a few year. They can work up some diagnoses which classify all murderers as mentally ill. Problem solved. We will have a medical answer to the why and we can all sleep at night knowing the docs are on the case.

jigger: He seems to have the same kind of anti-civilization talk as Ted Kaszinski.


Yeah, but he's a far more classical, disorganized schizophrenic (or was), unraveling in late adolescence, as is so typical. Kaszinski was a rare and extremely dangerous type of madman - old, functional, and highly organized. He didn't kill a lot of people - the scary thing about him was how damned hard he was to catch.

The term mentally ill, is a poor descriptor of emotions brought on more often by nurture than nature. The way he sounded on that radio call, I'd think his tone was a little weird, but he actually seemed to have empathy for the chimp. He didn't sound like a deluded person, or unable to reason. He seemingly felt abandoned, isolated, hurt, and lost his connection with humanity.

I see the primary cause for a lot of these shootings is simply a horrible culture that manifests in our daily interactions. A culture that picks on the weak and lacks compassion. The Fox News blathering morons that speak to the wussification or feminization of America; they judge and condemn everyone not like them, and maintain that the answer to everything is to be tougher. And that's the crux of the problem, a fundamental lack of kindness and compassion, and you see the expression of this vomited over the internet everyday.

A truly mentally ill person is more likely to kill Sharon Tate or John Lennon than they are to pick up a gun and start firing off at random people. These mass shootings are often from those that have lost the ability to cope, and while many may have fantasies about lashing out, which is more common than we'd like to believe, most don't take action and are mostly fine, until they aren't.

We should have more reasonable guns legislature, but these shootings more complicated than that. It speaks to more of a cultural problem than a firearm or "mentally ill" issue. Unfortunately, there's no quick fix for that.

Replace background checks with a single question:

"Have you ever downloaded RealPlayer videos of hamsters?"

Answer "yes"?  Gun permit denied.  Problem solved.
