Hey Ray. I said that the school belongs to the public. That does not mean that there are zero rules and anything goes. Got it.

Something!

He could be searching for that elusive fountain of truth.
Why do I detect this familiarity of style with another poster who had disappeared some time ergo.

You are the one who implied you wanted to see more photos. Exactly what inconsistencies in the reporting of this story do you think having more photos will clear up?

I've never made the categorical claim that the news I read/see/hear is not true, so I am not obligated to provide a counter source. The OP has sneered at the "mainstream media" - and those who use it for sources of info - in many posts in this single thread. I think it is fair to ask her where she gets her "incredibly credible news," since she has indicated that she clearly recognizes the news from "mainstream media" to be not credible.

Kathryn, the above is a question I'd like to see answered too. It has nothing to do with photographs of murdered children, etc., which you complain about. It's a very good question, and I'm sure many of us would like to see where you get your news which you rely upon.

Maybe the Koch brothers would be interested in funding an investigation. Who would like to "smack" Obama and the Democrats more than the Koch brothers?
Methinks one can take nothing for granted. Assumption is no longer available to the consciously aware, at this point in time. That said, I don't believe Billionaires would be in need of my assistance.

Dude, Kathryn is the OP, not me. The whole reason why this thread exists is because the mainstream media dropped the ball leaving and endless list of unanswered questions, holes, inconsistencies, etc. If after all of this you still turn to them as your only news source, that's your choice but you do realize every source is going to have conflicts of interest and biases. It is my opinion that it's best to gather news from multiple sources (including the mainstream media) if accuracy matters to you at all.

Weren't you implying that journalists and the public could have just walked up to the school when they arrived?

It's easy to get you and Kathryn confused; your writing style and positions are so alike.

This case does NOT have endless unanswered questions, holes, inconsistencies. In fact, I have not even seen one list inconsistencies posted here by the people who are complaining. Certainly if the inaccuracies and inconsistencies in reporting were "endless" you could come up with just a few examples.

I didn't notice ray saying that "mainstream media" was her only source of news. Did you see her say that?
