WADR, I do not understand this question. Seems to me that the fact that he wanted to kill is more important. What am I missing here?
What makes you think he killed himself? Did maybe another adult nearby kill him with a gun he or she had, and would the media report that properly? Is the media honest because it would make the adult who shot him a hero?
I am not saying he did not kill himself because I truly don’t know but I wonder if we would have heard it if someone else had pulled the trigger on him.
He did no one a favor by killing himself, because in so doing he left no one to turn our outrage and anger against except ourselves, and that is exactly what is happening.
Well, the way it works, is that liberals pick their fights carefully. If it’s a black guy that tears up womens’ private parts while killing them, that’s ok - and they’ll go to the matt to keep him alive - saying that he is somewhat retarded, or whatever.
But when it comes to someone violating their cherished institutions, a school in this case, or the Federal Bldg. in OKC, then it’s fine if they are executed, and you won’t hear a peep out them. Same for a politically incorrect crime, like dragging James Byrd behind a truck.
They know better than to act on principal - they pick their fights carefully and are careful to stay clear of fights that will cost them more than they gain. Republicans could learn something from this strategy.
Thew point is moot, he is dead and he took 26 innocents in a horrific manner.
He is on the lowest level of hell now.
If CT had a Death Row, Liberals would not protest because he is not retarded enough and he is not a black man.
My proof? Tim McVeigh
Libs let him die because he was white and he struck at sacred Government workers.
The media blasts the picture of this creep into everyone’s TV, and every detail of its life 24/7 , making it world famous , making it a household name.
Does the media realize that this coverage of its life will create copy cats who seek fame or to go out in a blaze of glory ?
My answer: Yes the media know this and purposefully report on it in such a manner as to create more copy cats that seek fame or glory .They could report on the killings but not the identity, nor details of how it was done so as to not encourage copy cats but they do because the media want this to happen so they can empower government, take away our gun rights , take away our freedom, our rights etc. .The media created the situation where now mass shootings are happening very frequently as they didn’t happen with this frequency in previous decades if at all then. Then the media get excited and happy that their work paid off when one happens and they go all crazy reporting it like sharks in a feeding frenzy.
What if my aunt had testicles? She likely would have been my uncle........
What if we had fewer vanities here with lame passing thoughts?
What if there had been a 2 foot deep snow storm blanketing CT the day before Lanza carried out his murder spree, would he still have murdered his mother then trudged thru the snow to the school to kill the children?
Smoking doobies and posting vanities on FR don’t mix very well.
You should do one or the other, but not both at the same time.
the mere fact he did this says he wanted to die. IMHO.
It is just as likely he wanted a Snicker bar, or to learn to surf, as whether he wanted to die. What went through his scrambled mind is as random as the lottery. We will never understand these people, nor predict their behavior. If zombies exist, these are them.
If he had no access to guns, he may have found some; or used a knife or machete or ANYTHING, to kill those kids if he was determined to kill.
In a society of millions, a certain percentage of people will be criminally insane. This means there are thousands of nutjobs out there with a burning desire to kill others. These people are often hard to identify. Some are completely normal just prior to committing an atrocity - something just snaps.
Only one strategy has any chance of protecting a school - armed guards & staff trained to deal with armed intruders.
Even Liberal movie people understand zombies, & they know the only way to deal with zombies is with guns.
The “liberals” would be conflicted as they tried to demonize guns and try to set him up as an innocent victim of the gun culture at the same time. He probably did the Left more of a favor than he did us.
