I just don’t get this whole thing.
If someone did something to piss you off... then why wouldn’t you go take THEM out? why go kill some little kids that had nothing to do with it?
The band Rush has a song in their latest album called “The Anarchist”. The lyrics also tend to fit the disaffected youth I think, and ones that have lost a moral compass due to mental issues or what have you.
There was a history writer that I heard that said these young men from the recent shootings remind him of the young men that have assassinated presidents in the past. Wanting their voices heard they go for bigger and more evil acts to get the biggest news in their warped minds.
Excerpt of lyrics:
“A voice so silent for so long
For all those years I had to get along,
they told me I was wrong
I never wanted to belong - I was so strong....”
“The lenses inside of me that paint the world black
The pools of poison, the scarlet mist, that spill over into rage
The things I’ve always been denied
An early promise that somehow died
A missing part of me that grows around me like a cage...
What I know, I’ve never shown; what I feel, I’ve always known
I plan my vengeance on my own - and I was always alone
Oh - They tried to get me
Oh - They’ll never forget me
There was a Priest in Newton that was a well known Child Molester within the Catholic Community. The info the Church had on his problems is staggering.
It appears he was in Newton around the time that Lanza was a boy. You don’t need to be an alter boy to have been molested by this Priest.
It is doubtful that he stopped molesting children once he moved to the St Rose of Lima Parish. He had major issues.
Priest Child molesters often tell the victim that the parent knows and approves.
Anything could have triggered the event.
The child molester Priest moved to the same town as Adam’s father.
The things seen beside Adam’s car may be related to the clergy or nuns.
We are never going to know what happened.
Oh btw, there is at least one Satanist in Newton. Curtis LeBlanc.
Are there more??
Apparently , for some time (as in many years), there have been rumors that Newton is a hotbed for Satanism.
That guy giving the devil sign in Vicki Soto’s picture looks pretty creepy...
But maybe Newton only has the one Satanist.
And then there is the Orion project that targeted mentally issued children with a goal of gun control. A CIA operation. Fact or Fiction? We will never know. We do know that the Clintons didn’t like the guy who revealed the info.
You “don’t get this whole thing”? So, you don’t get the actions of a crazy person? The shooter was nuts. A whack-a-doodle. He snapped. Who knows why. Maybe he was breastfed too much. Maybe not enough. But sometimes it is what it is. A crazy person killed a bunch of innocent people. Not much more to understand.
In his mind they had something to do with it, because they were a part of his mother’s world. Imagine having to live for years with a mother who saw you as her only world. Not only did she drop from having any jobs to be a stay-at-home mom for the formative years but she also handled her son’s education by herself. She would teach him her beliefs and political ideas through firearms training and survivalist ethics. That is the love of a mother.
And than imagine that the father and brother split away from you because they see you and your mother as crazy, as not interested in you. So who is left? That is right your mother and the world she lives in. So imagine the personal betrayal you would feel if your mother tries to hide the idea that she, herself, thought that you were crazy enough to be committed.
He also had personality issues. He could’ve had Anti-Social Personality Disorder, and he could’ve been taken medication that might’ve caused mania in him which increased his aggressive scope of behavior. In the end, he saw his mission as destroying his mother’s world and than destroying his mother along with it. I get it completely, however that doesn’t justify it.
P.S.: If this is a lot of the info we have, than we mostly have just speculation which is never good when we start pointing fingers. I would like to deny it, but I might as well accept that tragedies happen in a free society and to move on to take care of my life.

I think what we are witnessing with Sandy Hook and similar instances is the rise of what is known to psychologists as a “culture-bound disorder”. That is when a psychological disorder is not universal and present everywhere on the planet, but only appears in certain cultures, because the culture in some way fosters that disorder. They have a very similar “culture-bound disorder” in Malaysia, called “amok”, as in “running amok”, that is about the same as what we see from these spree killers.
“Amok: A syndrome first reported in the Malay people, usually male, consisting of a period of brooding followed by a sudden outburst of indiscriminate murderous frenzy, sometimes provoked by an insult, jealousy or sense of desperation. The person who runs amok may also die in a form of murder-suicide. Spelled also amuck. The Malay word for “furious attack.” Similar syndromes such as cafard in Polynesia and mal de pelea in Puerto Rico are known to occur in other peoples.”
I don’t know if the explanation for motivation of the shooter is valid. There is an ongoing investigation, and for all we know, there’s a note that explains things. There was a lot of misinformation that first day.
But we don’t have to understand the mind of the killer to accept the fact that he killed children, including Emilie Parker.
