Newtown, police chief uses lessons from Sandy Hook to educate local officers

Responding to the first 9:35 a.m. distress call that an “active shooter” was in the building, Newtown police made it the 2.1 miles between the station and the school in about two minutes. The simple arrival of the police cruisers stopped the killing rampage of shooter, Adam Lanza, who killed himself when he saw them. About three minutes was all it took for him to fire 154 .233 rounds from a Bushmaster XM15 assault rifle, riddling the little bodies of 20 first graders and six educators, Kehoe said.

After responding to one of the worst mass killings in history, Kehoe is on a mission, he said.....

But Kehoe, a vocal advocate for a national ban on assault weapons...

Apparently a large number of people involved with the shooting in Newtown Connecticut have the time and funds to travel around the country giving speeches. I wonder who is funding them?

What could you do with a knife, 5 gallons of gasoline, and a lighter to 20 defenseless kids and teachers??

As long as crazy people roam the streets, and boys are driven insane by feminization rules and drugs, this will get worse and worse.

Let boys be boys. That means they fight, get injured doing stupid things, and learn to deal with others without chemicals. And they learn consequences with every band-aid, stitch, squirt of antiseptic, and cast. Its the way that worked for a 100,000 years until fathers were declared unnecessary.

>>and pray to God this never happens again

Which God is that?? The one that isn’t allowed on campus or on public property? The one that a high school valedictorian has to “go rogue” to pray to in his speech? Or is he talking about the one that is Leftist-approved: allah.

“Defenseless” is the key word. There is no excuse for schools to not have at least one person present who can defend the other adults and the children. We wouldn’t dream of having a school without somebody present who can operate a fire extinguisher or evacuate students, so why do we purposely prevent people who could defend the students from doing so?

Pray to God that fathers take responsibility for their troubled offspring.

“Fundamentally transforming” didn’t start in 2009. It just went into overdrive.

Usually, there’s a restraining order or some similar divorce bargaining chip in the way.

Ok, I’m confused again. I would have sworn that the reports said he used nothing but pistols, no rifle was used.

There is so much dis-information surrounding this incident and now the legislature has voted to hide pictures and the Autopsies reports, I think I read.

In some cases, yes.

Was Adam’s father completely disengaged from him?

I hear that he lived with his mother and that the parents voluntarily separated sometime after his birth.

There are so many sordid lies and fakes surrounding the Sandy Hook scandal that it’s enough to discredit the entire fiasco. Sally Cox, Gene Rosen, Robbie Parker and the rest of the “grievers” involved in Sandy Hook are all pathological liars, fake criers, phonies and other manifestations of outright deception. Watch ANY interview with this assortment of liars, and you will see for yourself.

Not true. His parents were divorced in his teens.

Somehow, many of us somehow survived the 50s & 60s, and did just fine, without ‘corrective’ drugs, feminization and all of the lib-dem BS indoctrinization.

Too much secrecy surrounding Sandy Hoax. Sorry, but I call BS on what we're told happened there. I personally verified that the Social Security Death Index posted Adam's death to be Dec. 13th NOT Dec. 14th. If this were simply an error, why were the dates of the other victims, including his own mother posted correctly? I believe the Lanza home was commandeered by an imported group (possibly Chechnyan) for a kill mission for the purpose of forwarding the gun confiscation agenda in the U.S. Possibly this is all related to 0bama's "flexibility" remark made to Medvedev.

And let's face it, folks.. A Medical Examiner giving a presser outside in his LAB COAT? Really? Remember the lab coats handed out to doctors (who weren't all really doctors) during 0bama's 0bamacare pressers way back when? All done as part of the 'imagery psy ops' to make you BELIEVE.

I am in no way connected to 'FellowshipOfTheMinds' website, but there are some thought-provoking articles on Sandy Hoax here: http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/sandy-hook-massacre/

Last I checked, that was “sometime after he was born”. My point was that the parents selfishly divorced when they had a child living at home. Boys need a father because they will find a role model somewhere, including in a video game.

“Sometime after he was born” is a meaningless statement: it could be a serlo after his birth or a month before the event. He had a father living in the home for the first decade of his life. Millions of people have less, and don’t grow up to be mass muderers.

Meaningless to you perhaps, but it is a valid statement. I stand by my statement that divorce is bad for children and that fatherlessness is especially bad for boys. Do you really dispute that??

Millions of people share many traits with this mass murderer. Millions come from broken families. Millions own guns or have parents who own guns. Millions play video games. Millions take mood-altering prescription drugs. Are you saying that anything that is not a major trend must be discounted as a cause?

You are missing the point by conflating two points. It is meaningless to say “sometime after his birth” because that misleadingly implies that it was very soon after. That kind of unclear, crappy, deliberately misleading language is what the Dems do, and our side should not do it.
Re blaming it on divorce - it’s ridiculous. The other brother didn’t become a mass murderer. My godson didn’t become a mass muderer. Hundreds and thousands of men raised in single parent homes did not become mass muderers.

So, the problem is with my choice of “sometime after birth”?? OK. then, let’s change it to “sometime in his childhood, his parents selfishly got divorced”. Does that work? Can I be on “our side” again?

Or is the real problem that I gored your ox by blaming dysfunctional kids on divorced parents? Are you a “single” mom?

That rate of firing also struck me as surprising, since some significant time must have also been spent moving from the entrance to the sites of the shooting, and so far we haven't seen any evidence that Lanza had the kind of training that individuals who can shoot with accuracy at high rates, and swap magazines very quickly normally have.

But I'm no expert in that area, perhaps some other Freepers with expertise can weigh in on the chief's statement.

No, I am not a single mom. And no, you did not gore my ox. I think divorce is terrible. But I also think it’s ridiculous to blame his mental illness on divorce.

You are not alone in your beliefs. There are quite a few of us who know that Sandy Hook was nothing more than a fake "shooting" in order for the democrats to destroy our 2nd Amendment Rights.

Every single person who was "interviewed" after the "shooting" is a liar, faker, fraud, phony or other form of deceiver.

From the Posner mother to the Soto brother to the slimy, reptilian likes of Gene Rosen, Sally Cox and Robbie Parker...

All liars. Every last one of them. The non-verbal behavior on display stinks of fraud.
