Posted on 01/24/2013 9:19:43 AM PST by Uncle Chip
The Sandy Hook Advisory Commission will begin its grim work Thursday with an update on the police investigation into the Newtown, Conn. school massacre and presentations on the Columbine and Virginia Tech shootings.
According to the Hartford Courant, 16 experts, appointed by Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy, will convene for the first of a series of meetings to review the Dec. 14 mass killing last year and propose improvements to current policies related to student safety, gun violence, and mental health.
On Dec. 14, a lone gunman entered Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown and opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle, killing 20 children and six adults before taking his own life. Only the 2007 school shooting at Virginia Tech, where 32 students and staff members were killed, resulted in a greater loss of life caused by a single shooter.
The panel's first witness will be Danbury Assistant State's Attorney Stephen J. Sedensky, who will give one of the few official statements about the police investigation.
The Courant reported that former Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter, who was Denver district attorney at the time of the 1999 Columbine attack and a member of the Columbine Review Commission, will also speak. He will be joined by the University of Virginia's Richard Bonnie, a consultant to the Virginia Tech Review Panel and chairman of the Virginia Commission on Mental Health Law Reform.
The meeting, to be broadcast live on the Connecticut Network, coincides with the introduction of federal gun control legislation in Washington.
Members of the Connecticut delegation, along with congressional leaders, will propose banning assault weapons and ammunition magazines with more than 10 rounds.
"There is a fight coming,'' Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy, a Democrat, told the Courant.

Watching the presser on C-SPAN 3 now.
Forget the barf bag. Better make it a 55 gallon drum.
Maybe we’ll find out if it was a rifle or a pistol.
Yeah. And, THEY'LL be completely impartial, right?
The coverup is on. Where are the independent experts on this panel? Same old gun grabbers.
“Sandy Hook Panel Set to Begin Review of School Shooting”
Because, ya know, there have been so many more important things going on....
Like the pres’ent’s coronation and all....
The Department O’ “Justice” needed time to write the script for this “proceeding”.
Let’s see the weapons. Bullet holes in the glass, walls. Show us the AR-15, the clips, the cartridges. How did Lanza’s mother have a legally-owned AR-15 in CT when they were outlawed in CT? Maybe we should ask Mike and Laurie Phelps? Oh, excuse me, I mean professional crisis actor Jennifer Sexton (Greenberg)?? Oh well, who cares. What’s the difference anyway?
Here's the brightest of them.
Has any surveillance footage been released to the public? I personally don’t want to see anything graphic, just wanted to know if any of it’s been publicly released?
There is another Batman movie that has the word Aurora on it.
Bloomberg has a connection to this event through a mother at the school.
One of the things this group should do is tell the Monsignor at St Rose of Lima that he better make sure his own kids are okay during a lockdown instead of going somewhere else.
“How did Lanzas mother have a legally-owned AR-15 in CT when they were outlawed in CT? “
There is an easy answer for this one but Too technical for me.
There are certain specifications that have to be met before it is banned.
I saw an interesting article about how manufacturers get around bans. Like modifying part of the gun so it gets around the banned part of a State’s law.
You can count on that, Chris.
Supposedly the newly installed system wasn’t working that day.
Likely there is nothing of value on the hard drive. The issue with the hard drive is just mis-direction.
Websites he visited are on the ISP logs, not on his computer.
Contacts with others, using EMAIL, are on server logs, not on his computer. Nothing that he wrote or received from anyone is on his computer, unless he specifically 'saved' it to his hard drive.
If you use email, YOUR 'mail' is not stored on your hard drive.
Probably had the same kind of 'failure' as the VIDEO system at the LAS VEGAS COSTCO.
very very weird interview with the Barber of Adam Lanza
You read my mind!
Did Adam Lanza create that page?? If not, hmmmm..
STAMFORD — A 46-year-old Newtown man who worked behind the scenes on numerous blockbuster films was killed in a head-on accident on the Merritt Parkway Friday evening.
I stopped reading the basic article when I found out that one of their conclusions will be banning assault weapons and magazines with more than 10 rounds. Excuse me, if they are truly just beginning their investigation of what actually happened and how to prevent it how can they have reached any conclusions yet?
Oh, excuse me, I did and illegal and immoral act - I actually thought about an issue instead of responding with an emotional reaction. How Neanderthal of me!
If the ‘9/11 Commission’, ‘TWA 800’, and the ‘Warren Report (JFK)’ is any indication, don’t waste your time.
I want to read the report these tools get from Gene Rosen.
For those claiming that the whole thing is a hoax or that the police are lying because there is no video of the broken glass window by the front door, please check 0:24 on this CNN news footage.
It's right there -- clear news footage of the broken glass window right by the front door -- just as reported.
Too many contradictions coming from media and interviews in that area.
Gene Rosen is a trip.
I don’t believe his story for a minute.
What bus driver is going to leave a group of kids in his yard and take off. Then he takes them inside to play instead of calling cops. Then takes them to the firehouse
I think he is a nut job.
If his story is true the school needs to reprimand the bus driver along with St Rose of Lima reprimanding the Monsignor for taking off before his kids were known to be safe when the lockdown happened.
We’ve already found that out, a couple days after the shooting, in fact.
This is a 30 min. video, but there’s some stuff in here that makes you go “WTF?”
Yup. That was my reaction when I watched this video a few days ago.
As in WTF is wrong with the folks who made this video.
Panel? I think this panel is to give Hollywood a template of unfactual facts for their TV movie.
Anecdotes (stories) about small numbers of victims have been used to evoke emotional responses and pass some of the most anti-constitutional, anti-family and anti-American legislation of the recent past. That dishonest and wrongful tactic—often used by feminists for decades to destroy traditional family structure—will provoke negative responses and deserved consequences for the foreseeable future.
Why are you posting a video from over a month ago that was repudiated by its source within the day? Trying to mislead people?
Supposedly the newly installed system wasnt working that day.
Isn’t that convenient.
Here is an example. The internet predicted Hurricane Sandy weeks before it happened. They even have video of it posted to youtube before it happened! The government must have a secret time machine!:
“First I’ve learned of ‘Crisis Actors’, hmmmm...”
Of course it’s the first time you heard of it, because they only exist in the imaginations of Sandy Hook conspiracy mongers.
I don’t think that info is as widespread as we would like. Many still think it was a rifle. This may help convince some that are incorrect in their thinking.
Another tactic heavily used in the presser was “The gun lobby will say....” and then declaring themselves to be the only reliable source of truth.
What makes you say that??? What makes you think that they don't have video tape of the shooting??? Did they say so???
if someone buys a weapon in one state that is legal, then moves to a state where it is illegal, what is supposed to happen?
Of course many think it wasn’t a rifle, when the dishonest conspiracy mongers keep propagating a month-old, incorrect story to that effect in order to mislead people.
Just wow. You are such a great researcher.
Well no, that would be wrong. Try again.
The even have their very own website (notice it’s a .org)
Thanks for pointing out that view in the clip.
Why shoot out the glass in the window next to the door ? Was the door locked?
So are you saying that all the kids and parents of that school, and the police, and the medical personnel, and the 28,000 residents of that town are all crisis actors???
Are they still crisis acting 30 days later???
When will it be okay for the 28 people who are acting like they are dead and the rest to quit acting???
The door locked everyday at 9:30 automatically per reports.
I think it’s one of those solid steel doors.
So the only way through it was to go around it and blow out the glass window next to it.
Ever seen the sci-fi series EUREKA ?
What if Homeland Security created the whole town, and staffed it to use as practice ground and to implement gun control.
The weird coroner, the weird 'helpful' old man, the ambulances not being allowed near the school. No children around a building that had 600 panicking children ? Non grieving parents. Actors.
The school is new. The community is new. The government agency doing this was so creative they came up with the always original "NEW TOWN" for it's name.
Think about it. The whole town. Is is possible? Would our government go to such lengths?
Thank you both for the links. News to me.
