Update:

Channel 3 link — they just announced that they would go to regular (children’s Saturday morning) programming at 9:00 ET. They will not be covering the presser at that time.

I agree.

I was out of range of tv and pc until last evening and only picked up bits and pieces during the day. It was pretty unsettling to learn how MUCH the media got wrong all day. Almost all of it was wrong except there were 28 dead people, 20 of them children.

Yep, the Media LIED all day.

But they were consistently “on script” for Obozo’s agenda. Just like the Benghazi LIE for weeks.

MSM no longer delivers news, only propaganda and Lies.

But remember, Obozo is a Liar and he serves the father-of-lies.

My heart just breaks for these poor people. Not sure how much more I can even watch. It is just so sad. Also hard to watch the politicians mugging for the cameras and the media using the tragedy for left wing propaganda. It is all too predictable these days. So so very sad.

This morning, the newsies are on the recriminations -- the shoulda, woulda, coulda's.

==

The school just did some major renovations to improve security in October, per some reports. Those renovations didn't prevent this. People intent on committing murder are going to find a way. [In China also yesterday was another mass attack -- except that he was using a knife.]

These types of incidents have no explanation. We will never know what was going through the killer's mind. We will only know bits and pieces.

Already, we hear some who knew him say he was a nice kid. Others say he was eerily quiet and very intelligent. Others say he was was causing trouble at home, that his mother quit a position at the school to stay home and be with him.

This kinds of incidents allow many to jump on their agenda-horses.

My biggest criticism is with the media who, yesterday, were chasing all kinds of rumors and spreading so much misinformation, rather than verifying information before they spread it.

Hearing anything about why this press conf is over an hour late?

That is why I NEVER believe the reports for the first few hours when something like this happens. The networks are trying their best to be the 'first on air' with the breaking news, and in their haste, they ditch the first rule of reporting; get your FACTS straight! They report rumors or incorrect names, and in the process, make life a living hell for those whose families might be involved, or someone who isn't involved at all, but happens to have a similar name.

Soledad trying to push gun control on CNN right now. Can’t these vultures at least wait until these little angels are buried? Connie Mack bringing up mental health issues...good for her. Soledad trying hard to pivot from mental health back to gun control. So so predictable.

The brother who lives in NJ is apparently still getting threats, etc.

It is kind of strange that, NJ-brother says he had no contact for 2 years with the alleged killer. Yet, the alleged killer was initially mis-identified because he had the NJ-brother's ID. Didn't the NJ-brother miss having the ID and did he know his brother had it?

[Just more of many questions about the incident and trying to figure out the killer's mind.]

Watch what the right hand is doing. You won’t see what the left hand is doing. In my opinion, right now the bodies are being removed from the school, while all the pressies are occupied waiting in another location for a presser that keeps getting pushed back.

I REALLY hope I’m wrong. I don’t want to think that those kids lay there all this time....

Someone tell me I’m wrong...please.

Per CBS News:

http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/12/15/newtown-conn-remains-in-shock-horror-after-elementary-school-massacre/

All bodies had been removed from the school as of the 9 a.m. hour, police said on CBS This Morning Saturday.

Families of victims pleading with vulture media to leave them alone!!

I can see Soledad bugging them to comment on gun control and Obama’s tears right now.

First question from vulture leftist media is about guns used. How bout the monster that used them?

Per press conf- very good info found at house of mom and shooter that will provide very good evidence as to why this was done.

Yes, very sad to imagine but everything at the scene had to be examined exactly as it was so that it could be determined if there was a second or third shooter. Also, the forensics experts on Fox told the Friends that there would most likely be civil lawsuits in the future as well.

No doubt that the shooter probably left lots of clues of his mental sociopathology in that house. I will say that this sheriff seems very level headed and not prone to political posturing...thank God.

ME and Supt of Schools will be giving press conf within the hour for identification of victims and info on schools etc.

My first reaction- emotional of course- would be to tear down the school and rebuild a new and different one.

It’s very tough to imagine these kids, teachers and parents having to go back into that school.

Doesn’t seem that surprising that an underaged kid brother would have his ID. Maybe an old license or something that would get him into a bar. Brother might have given it to him or might not have known about it.

That is understandable.

My reaction would probably be to home school, for a variety of reasons.

Didn't the NJ-brother miss having the ID and did he know his brother had it?

Could've been an old school student body card or an old drivers license left at home and that's why he didn't miss it?

I work with law enforcement, so I understand and on a professional level, I know why it takes so long.

That being said, as a mother and grandmother, my heart breaks for those little ones and their families. How many parents and grandparents went to bed last night, looking at someone’s blankie or favorite toy that their child always had to have at bedtime? In this case, the emotional side of me tells the professional side of me to just shut up.

Perhaps it was an old ID -- like his brother's outdated DL that he wouldn't miss.

While I am a strong believer in home schooling, not every parent is capable of doing this. Possibly, they might have a friend or relative who could fill the bill.

I suppose schools are going to have to have lockdowns. By that I mean - keep the doors locked during the day with security posted for those who have to go there on business. Put bars on the doors - like they have in prisons.

Ok, I’m rambling, but for heaven’s sake - the answer isn’t gun control. It never has been and never will be.

I know what you mean.

Just a thought..but maybe we need to lock up the nuts...not the guns or the kids.

I agree with others...the problem is rooted in our rotting society..not our guns.

We live in such a ‘knee-jerk’ society now.. 90% want tighter gun controls in that poll on that page.
