Skip to comments.A Methodical Massacre: Horror and Heroics (Media's latest version)

Several sources in law enforcement and elsewhere provided what they said was the most current information on how the events leading to the school shootings unfolded.
Lanza next arrived at teacher Victoria Soto's classroom. Soto is believed to have hidden her 6- and 7-year old students in a classroom closet. When Lanza demanded to know where the children were, Soto tried to divert him to the other end of the school by saying that her students were in the auditorium.
But six of Soto's students tried to flee. Lanza shot them, Soto and another teacher who was in the room. Later, in their search for survivors, police found the remaining seven of Soto's students still hiding in the closet. They told the police what had happened.
The two teacher's aides who were killed were Mary Anne Murphy and Rachel Davino. It was unclear which aide was in which room when they were killed.
The first officer to arrive at the school found Lanza's body near the door of Soto's classroom.
Police investigators were still stunned Saturday by the scene they encountered at the school a day earlier, in particular by the seven surviving but shocked children hiding silently in the closet in Soto's classroom.
Officers found the children during the initial, rushed search of the building for survivors.
"Finally, they opened that door and there were seven sets of eyes looking at them," a law enforcement officer familiar with the events said Saturday. "She tried to save her class" he said of Victoria Soto.
She was shot not far from her desk, from which she had hung drawings on which her students had written captions such as, "I love my teacher Miss Soto."

John 15:13 No one has greater love than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
(or a teacher for those in her care)
Pity she did not have so much as the option to have the means to stop him.
So who was he upset with and why?
Police Walked A Man In Camo Pants And Dark Jacket Out Of Woods: Newtown
What happened to him???
The guy was a freak show who held grudges against his teachers and classmates back to his freaking Elementary School.
But without detracting in any way for what I just sincerely posted above, how many of the precious young lives we entrust to similarly dedicated teachers are not able to achieve their full productive adult capacity because of the inability and unwillingness of government-run schools to teach morality and personal responsibility?
It was within my own lifetime when God was made unwelcome in the public classroom. And now when we need God most, He is nowhere to be found, just as He warned us. By pretending we can do away with God, we also are deluded into thinking we can wish away the Devil too.
Jesus gave us the Lord’s prayer and even He mentions the importance of asking God to “deliver us from the evil one”. If the evil one ever had a mission for some confused and angry person to volunteer for, it would be to murder so many innocent children. The secular world is left blaming the weapon used rather than the person who pulled the trigger. They are dooming the rest of us to a repeat, and soon.
When seconds count, the police are minutes away.
