It Wasn’t Sandy Hook’s Security System

Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting aftermathI just found out about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. I saw a bunch of chatter about gun control on Twitter. It actually made me feel good, because I thought that it was about the Portland shooting. I’ve been bothered by the lack of coverage of that shooting, because I figure it is due to the fact that “only” two people were murdered. Sure, you can say I’m clueless, but the truth is that I’m not very good at this quick change, short attention span culture we have. I’m not over that shooting yet.

The best reporting that I’ve found on the shooting is from the Wall Street Journal, Dozens Killed in Connecticut School Shooting. It seems that we now know that at least 27 people were killed, 18 of them were children. Details are few in this story, but the WSJ article was really pushing one part of the story. There is a locked double door entry system at this school. This is the result of past tragedies like Columbine. No one knows how the shooter got through, but the WSJ sure is interested.

My perspective about this is: who the fuck cares?! Clearly he did get through. It seems that he was the son of one of the teachers there. (They are both reportedly dead now.) That might explain it. Regardless, something explains it. But that is not going to explain why 27 people were murdered. This is a typically American approach to a problem: look everywhere but not at what is right in front of you.

I don’t know why this horrible event happened at Sandy Hook. But I feel fairly sure that a big part of it comes down to this:

Crazy Man + Guns = 27 People Murdered

So I’m thinking that maybe we need to start talking about mental health and gun laws in this country. Because no amount of investigation of the school’s security system is going to improve the situation in the future. If you have well-armed crazy people walking around, people are going to die unnecessarily.

Update (14 December 2012 5:20 pm)

Most recent data: 26 murdered, 20 of which were children.

  1. So the media got it wrong. The shooter’s mom didn’t work at the school. In fact they got so many things wrong about that day. So some of us have tried to do some investigation, only to be twarted at every level by the state police and state government of CT.

    Now that this incident has been over for a while, take a look yourself at the "evidence" that does exist. It’s the addition of many small details that will begin to paint a picture of some level of hoax in this disater.

    Yes, some of us got some of our theories wrong mostly because we aren’t allowed to get the answers that the authorities have been holding back. That alone should make you question what really happened.

    When a French author wrote a book about how 911 was an inside job, I was so angry at him. I literally jumped up and down yelling at the TV calling him an idiot until I started to go back and look at the TV footage and phots, but this time, I looked at it with a more critical eye. The smoking gun right in front of our eyes were the buildings themselves. All three came down in their own footprint at FREE FALL SPEED. Even if you buy Popular Mechanic’s explanation about "pancakeing" and fires melting steel, it is still impossible for the buldings to come down at free fall speed UNLESS there was some other man devised assistance. Apparently over 1500 engineers agree with me. And that’s just one fact that proves this was planned. There are HUNDREDS of others facts, but as long as people are not willing to question things, these kinds of horrific events will contunue to be perpatrated on our citizens.

    So ask yourself why one of the kids that was interviewed at Sandy Hook saw two men running past the classroom windows and saw one man handcuffed. And what happened to the two men who were caught in the woods that evening – on camera on police audio? Doesn’t it bother you that you aren’t allowed to see any evidence except the few things the authorities have leaked out AFTER the documents were sealed? And BTW, there is a bill being voted on soon by CT which will permanetly seal the evidence in THIS CASE ONLY. Sorry, but I can be as sensitve to the families who lost their kids as anyone else, but if we allow this evidence to be hidden, what else will we allow to be held back from us in the future?

  2. @kramefc – I have a great fondness for people who dig into these things. However, whenever I [i]do[/i] look into them, I find little there. The problem is almost always the same: the entropy problem. The more evidence collected, the more of it will contradict. This is an information problem and it [i]always[/i] exists. So contradiction itself doesn’t prove much.

    I encourage you and others to look. Real conspiracies happen all the time. Remember ADM? Good luck.
