Sandy Hook documents to remain secret

sandyhook

A Connecticut judge has ruled that documents seized in the Sandy Hook investigation that belonged to Adam Lanza will remain secret. The judge cited that if Lanza had survived and was tried for his crimes, the court would have ordered the private property returned to its rightful owner.

While it wasn’t mentioned in any article I saw, it could be safe to assume that another reason the documents were ordered to remain private were to prevent copycat shootings. Personally, I’m of the opinion that releasing these documents won’t cause copycats to increase. Conversely, with the release of such documents I believe it can go a long way in helping to identify future threats.

This recent ruling reminds me too much of the Columbine depositions that were ordered sealed for 20 years, along with the infamous Basement Tapes that were destroyed without any public notice.

Knowledge is power and the more knowledge we have into understanding the warped minds of these mass murderers the better chance we would have of preventing future tragedies like these.

Father of victim deals with Sandy Hook truthers

newworldorder

The following link is a great story from The Trace about Lenny Pozner entitled “What Kind of Person Calls a Mass Shooting a Hoax?” Mr. Pozner is the father Noah Pozner who was tragically killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Mr. Pozner also decided to take it upon himself to engage the people, and I use that term loosely, who believe the conspiracy theory that Sandy Hook didn’t happen.

This is just a sampling of how the ‘truthers’ reacted to him…

Pozner looked to engage in some sort of dialogue with the people who, around this time, made him their chief target. (One video montage that started making the rounds showed images of Noah set to a soundtrack of pornographic sounds.) In June 2014, Pozner accepted an invitation to join a private Facebook group called Sandy Hook Hoax. He told its members that he was willing to answer their questions. “I think I lasted all of eight minutes,” he recalls. One participant said, “Man, I’m gonna have to coach you up if you wanna go on TV and make money Lenny.” Another typical attacker proclaimed, “Fuck your fake family, you piece of shit.”

This is not unlike the jackass that approached Vickie Soto’s family in public to tell them that she never existed.

I urge you to read the entire article to see what these dregs who refuse to believe in reality do to further their preposterous conspiracy fantasies.

I really would love to know what’s broken in the brains of conspiracy theorists that make them believe the garbage they spew.

UPDATE 12/21/2015: One of Mr. Pozner’s detractors, James Tracy, a professor at Florida Atlantic University, has been fired by the school for allegedly harassing Mr. Pozner.

In case you’re wondering the level of Tracy’s harassment…

‘Tracy even sent us a certified letter demanding proof that Noah once lived, that we were his parents, and that we were the rightful owner of his photographic image.’

Firing isn’t enough karma for this assclown. If I were the Pozner’s I would be suing him for every last piece of tin foil.

UPDATE 1/14/2016: In the wake of Tracy’s firing the Washington Post is reporting that the threats against Lenny Pozner have only increased.

A few days after Tracy’s firing was announced, Pozner got several death threats. A woman (judging by the voice) left messages on his phone that sounded like, “You’re gonna die you [expletives and slurs deleted] …And what are you going to do about it? You can do absolutely nothing. … this is coming to you real soon [expletive deleted]. You going to die,” and “You [expletive deleted] look behind you, justice is coming to you real soon.”

I’m actually dumbfounded for once because there’s nothing new that I can say about these crackpots that I haven’t said already. It’s just so pathetic that they’ve taken to harassing a man who lost such a young child in one of the worst crimes in recent history.

UPDATE 4/26/2016: James Tracy is now suing Florida Atlantic University claiming that his termination violated his First Amendment rights. On the one hand FAU is a state-run university so it could be argued that the government curtailed his speech. On the more realistic hand harassment is not a form of protected speech. Also I have to add that I love how these conspiracy nuts will use the courts for their own gain but if they were the one being brought before a judge wouldn’t recognize the authority of the court.

Sandy Hook truther assails victim’s family

newworldorder

I actually have somewhat of a fascination of conspiracy theories. I think they can be fun little works of fiction. What I can’t stand are the conspiracy theorists themselves who ignore all basic tenets of logic and science just to put forth whatever the latest tripe is that Alex Jones is pushing. It pisses me off even more when these dim-witted troglodytes feel the need to interject themselves in places they’re not welcome with their outrageous accusations.

Recently in Stratford, Connecticut, the Vickie Soto 5K race was being held with the purpose of raising money for educational scholarships in her name. For those of you who may not remember, Vickie Soto was the teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School who selflessly put herself between gunman Adam Lanza and her students. She died protecting little lives.

So leave it to some false flag believing asshat to ruin this event. 32-year-old Matthew Mills of Brooklyn and went to the event allegedly with the sole purpose of approaching Vickie Soto’s family

Police said Mills approached Vicki’s Soto’s younger sister, Jillian. They said Mills shoved a photograph in the younger Soto’s face and began angrily charging that not only did the Sandy Hook tragedy not take place, but that Vicki Soto never existed.

Can you imagine walking up to a family at a memorial for their love one who died a tragically violent death to tell them that their daughter/sister didn’t even exist? I’m almost positive that the belief in conspiracy theories is an indication of sever mental illness. The kind that gets you a padded cell with daily electroshock treatments and possibly a frontal lobotomy.

If I were in charge I would round up all the conspiracy theorists and place them in secret FEMA prison camps. That way they’d be separated from the rest of society and they’d probably finally be happy since they told us all along.

UPDATE 12/21/2015: Mills’ lawyer is claiming ‘free speech’ as his client’s defense. Last time I checked, harassment is not a protected form of speech.

As much as patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel so is claiming free speech in order to violate the rights of others.

UPDATE 3/19/2016: Mills no-showed a court hearing last week. The judge has offered the ultimatum to Mills that he accept a plea deal from the state or go to trial. Knowing these conspiracy nuts I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t recognize the judge’s authority.

UPDATE 4/18/2016: Mills entered into an Alford plea and was sentenced to a one year suspended sentence and will have no further contact with Victoria Soto’s family.

In true truther douchebag fashion Mills told a reporter that “I think that the Sandy Hook family members need better acting lessons.”

It’s a damn shame that this assclown didn’t spend any lengthy amount of time in a cell.

Aspereger’s did not cause Newtown

Don’t Blame Adam Lanza’s Violence on Asperger’s:

Adam Lanza
Adam Lanza

I can’t believe we keep having to go over this. Then again it’s hard to wage a war on ignorance when the ignorant want to stay that way.

For those of you who may not know Asperger’s Syndrome is a form of Autism where the sufferer has trouble with social situations and has trouble discerning different types of speech like sarcasm. That’s just a very basic explanation of it. What Asperger’s doesn’t do is turn someone into a homicidal maniac.

Yes there have been violent killers who have suffered from Asperger’s. The one’s that come to mind for me are William Freund, John Odgren, and of course Adam Lanza.

Another thing that Asperger’s doesn’t do is that it doesn’t diminish your ability to tell right from wrong. While Asperger’s may be seen as a mental disease Lanza and the others knew full well what they were doing and what they were doing was wrong. Newtown was not just some outburst. Lanza had planned it for months as did Freund and Odgren. The only drawback in these cases with Asperger’s, if you can call it a drawback, is that Apserger’s patients tend to be highly intelligent and organized hence the ‘success’ of these attacks. However these attacks are the exception and not the rule.

The problem is that too many people in our society believe correlation is causation. They believe that since these killers had Asperger’s that everyone that has Asperger’s is a potential mass murderer. It also doesn’t help that too many criminal defense lawyers are using Asperger’s as a defense in murder trials, as shown with that of John Odgren. Then lastly there’s the people who have self-diagnosed themselves as having Asperger’s. Asperger’s cannot just be diagnosed by going to WebMD. It has to be diagnosed by a medical professional. If you tell people you have Asperger’s and you’ve never seen a doctor about it chances are you’re just an anti-social jerk.

Stop living in fear of everything. Knowledge is power and the more knowledge you have the better off we’ll all be.

Of chimps and Autism: A lesson in journalism on Sandy Hook

Adam Lanza
Adam Lanza

Two stories came out this past week about the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. One the media took and ran with while the other has received little to no attention. As usual it’s my opinion that the media picked the wrong one.

The story that has been all over the news is that gunman Adam Lanza may called into an anarchist radio show in Oregon to talk about Travis the Chimp. Travis was that chimp in Connecticut that went um…apeshit….and mauled that woman’s face off. So what? He called an off beat radio show to speak about an off beat topic. Even though Lanza said this about the incident

“His attack can be seen entirely parallel to the attacks and random acts of violence that you bring up on your show every week, committed by humans, which the mainstream also has no explanation,” Lanza says of Travis at one point.

“I just … don’t think it would be such a stretch to say that he very well could have been a teenage mall shooter or something like that.”

I don’t see how this is relevant to explaining the motive behind the shooting itself. This is National Enquirer stuff which doesn’t surprise me since the first national news outlet to break the story was the New York Daily News.

Now the story that got no attention whatsoever was this story where Matthew Lerner, a psychology professor at Stony Brook University, told the commission investigating Sandy Hook that there is no link between Autism and violence.

This is the story that should have gotten the press that the chimp story did. Asperger’s has become the 2nd de facto excuse for school violence after bullying. It’s yet to be used as a successful defense. Yet there are people who will think that because of people like Lanza that all Asperger’s patients or Autistics are all potential mass murderers.

We have too much ignorance in this country as it is and it’s partly because the media is more concerned about ratings and page views than educating the populace or reporting the truth.

Misdirection by the media on the Sandy Hook report

Recently the state of Connecticut made public all its files on the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Meanwhile the national media has transfixed on two things that have nothing to do with the actual shooting in my opinion.

The first is this picture of a young Adam Lanza…

younglanza

That’s a young Adam Lanza dressed in camos, teething on what appears to be a gun in front of a gun rack. First off the gun he’s holding is probably a toy and this picture could be of any number of kids who were and are raised in rural America. That doesn’t make them potential mass killers. As a matter of fact, kids who are raised around guns are usually less likely to become killers since they’re taught to respect firearms and are well-educated on the damage they can do. I’m not here to argue the merits or drawbacks of the 2nd Amendment but guns did not make Adam Lanza a mass murderer.

Another thing the media is making a big deal about is the fact that a psychiatrist who once treated Lanza voluntarily gave up his license because he allegedly had a sexual relationship with one of his patients. He briefly treated Lanza and barely remembered him. The doctor surrendered his license in 2012. This didn’t cause Lanza to become a mass murderer either.

Again Lanza became a mass murderer because he was allowed to have an unhealthy obsession about previous school shootings and was allowed easy access to weapons by his mother. People with Asperger’s can tend to have obsessions over one particular subject, Adam Lanza’s were mass killings and no one discouraged him from it. Another case of Not My Kid Syndrome.

Sandy Hook report released

Newtown gunman Adam Lanza had ‘obsession’ with Columbine:

Adam Lanza
Adam Lanza

Another story that I’ve been woefully behind on is that of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School last year. Back in late November the state of Connecticut released their final report. You can read a PDF of the report here.

What a lot of media outlets have been focusing on is that Adam Lanza was obsessed with Columbine. I was about to dismiss this as media hyperbole again especially considering that Lanza had a not only a spreadsheet that detailed numerous mass murders but he also had newspaper clippings and documentation on the shootings at NIU and Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania. That was until I read the report.

On page 27 of the report it states that among the evidence that was seized from Lanza’s room were ‘large amount of materials relating to Columbine shootings.’ So Lanza was just another copycat mutant, an anti-social loser with no originality. And just like his coward heroes the only way he could make himself feel relevant was through the barrel of a gun. Also just like his coward heroes he took the coward’s way out making the flames of hell burn just a little more yellow.

Also listed in the evidence seized were ‘materials regarding the topic of pedophilia and advocating for rights for pedophiles.’ So not only was he a mutant but he was pedo-defending scum too.

Yes there’s a Sandy Hook video game and why you shouldn’t be outraged

Sandy Hook-inspired game sparks outrage:

stick

Yep, someone actually made a video game about the killings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. While most people are outraged my first thought was “What took them so long?” although not in a good way.

First off let’s discuss the term ‘video game’ in this situation. This is not a game you can go to the store and buy. It was not developed by Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo or any one of their many licensed developers. This game was made by a single idiot in Flash, possibly in a parent’s basement, then posted on the internet for everyone to see.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way I actually played the game. It starts off in Historic Mode where you simplistically reenact the actions of Adam Lanza on that December day. The object is to go from room to room shooting as many teachers and students as possible after shooting your mother in the head. You have 10 minutes to kill as many as possible and once time runs out the game says the police have arrived and your character commits suicide. Once you finished Historic Mode it unlocks Gun Control mode. In this scenario you’re using a katana instead of a gun. When that mode is completed it unlocks a third mode where the teachers are armed. In case you were wondering I scored the highest on the armed teacher level.

When you complete the game you can hear a recorded message from the game’s creator stating that the game was made since after living in Texas the designer lived in Australia where they have tight gun control and believes the US should follow suit. In a nutshell he claims this game was made in support of gun control, but I call bullshit.

The game was made by one Ryan Lanbourn. If the name sounds familiar he made a similar game in 2007 called V-Tech Rampage about the Virginia Tech shootings. Was he arguing for gun control back then? Not really. He was extorting the internet instead.

I will take this game down from newgrounds if the donation amount reaches $1000 US, i’ll take it down from here if it reaches $2000 US, and i will apologize if it reaches $3000 US.

The newgrounds he speaks of is Newgrounds.com which hosts all sorts of tasteless games but surprisingly they have taken the Sandy Hook game down.

Now here’s why you shouldn’t be outraged. First of Lambourn is nothing but a troll and lives off of your outrage and as you should know by now you never feed the troll. Secondly in this day and age of the internet some jackass is going to post something that’s offensive after every tragedy that happens. If we’re outraged every time they do this they’ll just continue with every tragedy that happens. That’s why I was surprised it took this long for the game to become public knowledge. It took less than a month for Lambourn’s Virginia Tech game to come out.

So in conclusion stop being a bunch of knee jerkers and pearl twisters every time some assclown does something offensive. You’re only guaranteeing they’ll do it again.

Here’s his picture from 2007 by the way.

Elad Nehorai: Another Columbine mythbuster

Eric Harris, Adam Lanza and Evil:

myth

Elad Nehorai is a blogger and writer who wrote a series of posts comparing Sandy Hook to Columbine. One of his points of contentions I respectfully disagree with is that the parents should not be held responsible for the massacres. In his opinion this makes the school shooters out to be victims. In my opinion the parents should be held partially responsible for these tragedies as they could have easily prevented them but the one thing we do agree upon is that school shooters, especially Adam Lanza and Eric Harris, are never victims.

I urge you to read both of his posts, the first one is linked in the article I linked to. I can’t do his work any justice being the hack that I am but please allow me to leave you with some of his words about Eric Harris and the persistent myth that he and Dylan Klebold were bullied….

Eric and Dylan weren’t outcasts, and they were hardly ever bullied. In fact, if anything, Eric was a bully himself. They weren’t goth, they weren’t gay and they weren’t outcasts.

Eric Harris was never quietly suffering. In fact, from a young age, Eric was exhibiting signs of being a born killer.

In fact, one of the most pervasive myths about Columbine was that it was a school shooting. It wasn’t. It was a failed bombing. Eric and Dylan had planted bombs throughout the school. There plan was to massacre as many of the students and faculty as possible, with no specific group in mind.

In other words, there were no targets.

Eric’s dream wasn’t to kill jocks or anyone else. His goal in life was to make as many people suffer as possible, as painfully as possible.

Yet still people cling on this myth like it was the last life-preserver on The Titanic, like it was the only thing giving them purpose. Let it go. Not only is it not true but the more you hang on to your high school hate the more you let the bullies win. It’s time to grow up now.

No drugs found in Adam Lanza psychiatric or otherwise

Sandy Hook Shooter Adam Lanza Had No Drugs, Alcohol In System:

Last week it was leaked by an anonymous official attached to the Sandy Hook investigation that Adam Lanza’s toxicology report did not turn up any illegal or prescription drugs in his system. As I’ve posted before usually charlatans and quacks come out after a school shooting and are quick to blame anti-depressants as the real motive behind these kinds of shootings. Dealing with them is kind of like dealing with conspiracy theorists. If the suspect was on anti-depressants the shooting was caused by the meds. If the shooter wasn’t on any meds then the shooting must have happened because he went off his meds. Why can’t it just ever be that he was a crazy bastard?

It’s no secret that I am a firm advocate of medical science and anti-depressants. As I’ve said numerous times an anti-depressant basically turned my life around. Have I had a bad reaction to some? Yes, I have. Unfortunately finding the right one can be a trial and error kind of process. However when I did have a bad reaction the only person I wanted to hurt was myself. If, and that’s a mighty big if, a prescription medication causes someone to murder it’s more than likely that person had murderous intentions to begin with.

As far as I’m concerned the people who blame these things on anti-depressants are on the same level of people who believe vaccines cause autism. Both are misinformed and are wallowing in their ignorance.

UPDATE 10/29/2013: These findings have been made official but just like I mentioned the media is blaming the lack of meds in his system as a reason behind the shootings.

But did the troubled 20-year-old slip into a murderous rage because he was off his prescription medication?

How about no? Does no work for you? Because the answer is no. Just, no.

It’s more likely that he want into a murderous rage because he was an over-entitled psychopath.
