Skip to comments.Newtown shooter motivated by Norway massacre, sources say
Posted on 02/26/2013 9:43:11 AM PST by Moonman62
Law enforcement sources say Adam Lanza was motivated by violent video games and a strong desire to kill more people than another infamous mass murderer.
Sources say Lanza saw himself as being in direct competition with Anders Breivik, a Norwegian man who killed 77 people in July 2011.
Breivik killed eight with a bombing in downtown Oslo. He then moved to a nearby island where hunted down and fatally shot 69 people, mostly teenagers attending a summer camp.
Two officials who have been briefed on the Newtown, Conn., investigation say Lanza wanted to top Breivik's death toll and targeted nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School because it was the "easiest target" with the "largest cluster of people."
Evidence shows that his mind, sources say, Lanza was also likely acting out the fantasies of a video game as he killed 20 first graders and six adults at the school. For Lanza, the deaths apparently amounted to some kind of "score."

Well, the obvious solution to this news is that we need to make even larger, easier targets. /liberal loon mode
Exactly, so why write the article?
Does anyone know if that security camera footage from the Newtown High School parking lot turned out to exist? It, purportedly, showed his car enter and exit the school’s parking lot just before the shooting at the elementary school.
Sounds like “copycat” is contagious.
HHmmmm! A recluse. No friends. Speaks to no one. Computers and cell phones smashed. Leaves no notes, diary, manifesto. And these morons know this because?????????????????????
It doesn’t exist. Stop listening to paranoid nutjobs online.
I have been saying to anyone who would listen and some who would not that the media glorifies the murderer, leading perverted individuals to admire them and imitate them.
I will not back down from this statement.
The media should NOT print their picture. They should NOT print their manifesto (they all have one, eh?). Their name should be changed to “Random a$$ho!e.”
“It, purportedly, showed his car enter and exit the schools parking lot just before the shooting . . ..”
Iforgot; was Lanza apprehended at the school?
All of the strick new laws regarding medical privacy such as HIPAA make it incredibly difficult to release medical information, even about the deceased, such as their prescription drugs.
This is what people wanted but then when there’s a case where people desperately want medical information about someone, then they’re upset.
"It turns out that Theodore Kaczynski, a.k.a. the Unabomber, was a volunteer in mind-control experiments sponsored by the CIA at Harvard in the late 1950s and early 1960s."
"the man experimenting on the young Kaczynski was Dr. Henry Murray"
"The overall program was under the control of the late Sidney Gottlieb, head of the CIA's technical services division. Just as Harvard students were fed doses of LSD, psilocybin and other potions, so too were prisoners and many unwitting guinea pigs."
This couldn't have been good for old Ted.
Yes. His body was found at the school. I think he shot himself when he saw law enforcement responding to the 911 calls.
Theoden: So much death. What can men do against such reckless hate?
Two competing strategies:
Aragorn: Ride out with me. Ride out and meet them!
American left: Blow your whistle!
Well, one of the few interviewed children acknowledged that the entire "shooting" was really a drill. Another child indicated that there was a lot of "banging on the walls," but never mentioned the distinct sound of gunfire during his interview. Out of the mouth of babes shall come the Word of God...
Add those two facts into the litany of terrible actors and pathological liars posing as "grieving families" and "witnesses" like Gene Rosen, Sally Cox, Soto's "brother" and so forth....
.... And you end up with a manufactured BS product created and supported by democrats in order to sway emotions against gun ownership in this Country.
But don't let the facts get in the way of the democrat lies. We can go by photographs alone. Here is Robbie Parker as he "grieves" over his "murdered daughter" at her "funeral."
Who is to say that the “unnamed law enforcement official” really exists, and that this is just another Sandy Hook LIE promulgated by the same DEMOCRAT people who placed machine guns into the hands of Mexican Drug Cartels in order to blame it all on lawful gun owners in the USA?
The shootings happened.
