I think this might be some important reading. This article is not about Adam Lanza, however, this was written 3 days before Fridays tragedy by a woman who has a son who is 14, anti-social, undiagnosed as of yet, but mom has heard possible diagnosis' of ADHD, Autism Spectrum, and others. This is a heartbreaking read, but it might explain some things. If these were symptoms Lanza had experienced in his lifetime, I'm pretty sure this is a child I would not expose to violent video games, guns or other violent media. I'm not saying this is Lanzas profile, but this is an important read none-the-less I think.



The real tragedy in these stories is that there is little to no help for parents raising these children who hang in the balance. In fact, there's little to no help for anyone trying to help someone with violent or potentially violent mental disease

This is true.   I studied this before I had to drop out of school.  But there is a huge amount of stress with teenaged anti social violent teen boys.  Please be sure.  I am not saying all teen age autistic boys are like this.  Of course not.  But there is enough evidence for me to see there was a real problem.   It's a specific thing.  And there isn't enough help.  When I did a student teaching in schools for self contained.  Special ed.   The boys had issues with the normal energy that teen boys have.  But they didn't have the same outlets.  Sports or yoga.  Yoga would be the best.  But it is difficult to support.  The idea of sending one of these kids. To gun practice.  Is terrifying to me. And to any teacher I have spoken to.  It is creating a monster.

It seems some moron rang in a bomb threat to a church..

Sky News Up-Date..

Many residents and visitors took solace in church on Sunday.
At a packed St. Rose Catholic church, the priest's announcements included news that the Christmas pageant rehearsal would go on as planned, but without six-year-old Olivia Engel, who died before she could play the role of an angel.
Shortly before Mr Obama was due to arrive, worshippers at the church close to the school were evacuated after a reported bomb threat.
Armed police were sent but it was quickly decided that there was no danger to the public.

Read the full article  --> http://news.sky.com/...in-mourning   .... It also contains a good few pictures of the little victims faces, along with some adults...  When I saw their little faces, it really sunk in more so,  So very sad..

That sounds like nothing more than rumor to me.. as with alot of what is being posted lately... we should really just let the investigation play out and go with the factual information.... The press conference today actually referenced this issue.

It was not a bomb threat, actually worse.......

NEWTOWN, Conn.--St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church was evacuated during its noon mass on Sunday due to an anonymous threat made by phone.
A spokesman for the church told Yahoo News that an unidentified male called the rectory, threatening to "kill everyone."
"My friend didn't finish the job," the caller said, according to the church official.
The church alerted state police, who said it was a credible enough threat and ordered the church be evacuated, the spokesman said................




It's the second threat in as many days for St. Rose, according the Washington Post. On Saturday, the church displayed posters for parishioners to express their grief. However, an unknown prankster wrote, "This is just round one," on one of them, the pastor said.
By 2:30 p.m., the church had closed its doors and cancelled their evening mass.

The State police spokesman made it pretty clear not to trust anything that isn't posted directly from Newtown. The Newtown Bee seems to be their link to the public as far as information goes... www.newtownbee.com.  He says that none of the state, county or local officials are talking to the media. Misinformation will only make this situation worse... confusion is the worst form of distraction.

As with the rest of the Nation I have been heavy hearted since Friday.... though I thought myself cold for not shedding a tear... I was  beginning to think that my days as a soldier and a first responder had left me unfeeling.... however... I watched SNL's opening segment on my phone a few minutes ago and I bawled like a baby... I give props to the crew for taking those few moments to do What they did. I can't post links from my phone... just look up SNL opens with silent night....

People are creating twitter accounts with fake information, saying twitter has agreed to donate money for every "follower" or "retweet" they get. One claimed to be a victim's mother, claiming her son was named "Ryan", obviously as we know nobody was killed was named this.


Twitter has shut down two big accounts already, one with over 150,000 followers.

This woman's son's picture was wrongly used by a Twitter account claiming it as "her son" who "died" in the shootings, the woman posts a picture of the boy very much alive. It's sick how people try to profit off this, with the followers they gain, in a week or two they can throw out ads on Twitter and gain profit from 20 children and 6 adults being shot.


Here are the links.

How terrible can people be...trying to profit off this. I'm losing faith in people a little bit more every day.

Oh great, now they're trying to blame a sci-fi game for everything:

Mob Blames Mass Effect For School Shooting, Is Embarrassingly Wrong

Quote

In the wake of the terrible tragedy in Connecticut, initial reports said the shooter was a 24 year-old named Ryan Lanza. Online, people quickly located a Ryan Lanza on Facebook and searched through his profile to see if there were any "clues" they could pin the shooting on. They found their clues...but the wrong Lanza.
As we now know, the shooter was apparently Adam Lanza, the younger brother of a man named Ryan Lanza (It's unclear if the killer's brother and the Ryan Lanza on Facebook are the same person, though some details match).
But during those initial reports, a mob of angry Facebook users noticed that Ryan Lanza had liked Mass Effect on Facebook. Coupled with news reports that a Fox News expert connected the horrific shooting to video games, some felt like this was proof positive that games were to blame.
A Facebook pile-on began. "There is a connection between violent games and senseless violence in real life," wrote Facebook user Becky Laird Gluff. Another user, Melanie Bowers, said, "Ban this game and the people who created such sickness." And Catherine Barowski Plummer even wrote, "I am sure none of these precious children had this game on their Santa list... God help protect us from all the evil our society promotes." (More in the above gallery)
