All:

This is the thread I created on Dec 14th when there were initial reports of an incident. You can see some of the confusion that is being reported, as it is being reported. We are a small state so many regulars on the CT board were affected.

School Shooting in Newtown

Hope this answers some questions...

I want to bring this country inline with other civilized countries, that have strict gun control laws, and that don't have mass shootings.

The unresolved discrepancies in the Sandy Hook official story is questioned by liberals, conservatives and people who are not politically orientated. It's very telling that the only people defending the official story with unjustified insults and accusations are the radical liberal posters.
1. Who is the "mainstream media".....names please?

2. There is no "Official story" in this case because the official investigative report has not been released. There are fragmented reports regarding Sandy Hook out there.

Yes, bogus questions. Questions that have no merit. Dishonest loaded questions. Questions that only a deranged person would continue to be asking about this incident. Clear enough?

Why is that so hard for you to understand?
To play the game your way, "why do you keep ignoring the post where someone" (me) asked about the ONE photo of the children lined up, evacuating. If the photographer was able to get close enough to take that ONE photo, why not others? "Logistics" doesn't explain that. Publicizing just ONE photo of the evacuation is simply a curious and vastly different type of photo-journalism than I have seen in any other major news story.

It doesn't make me a conspiracy theorist. As I've stated before, I HAVE encountered some CTs who are asking these exact questions, and I realize I have no answer for them on this particular question, and others.

Not saying I morbidly wish to see more, but it's not typical for a photographer to stop at one during such a major tragedy.
I don't know how many she actually took, but AGAIN, she is a Newtown resident who knows the families, and as she states in the article, she herself was very upset that this was happening in her town to families that she knew, so maybe she wasn't indulging in typical photographer behavior due to her own emotional involvement. I do not find this particularly unbelievable.

Do you even know what the Second Amendment says? Just wondering.

I do not own any guns, so there is nothing to take away.

What exactly do you mean when you call someone a troll? I only know of trolls as those ugly little dolls I had when I was a kid.


I guess some of you are having a hard time figuring out what the collective "you" means.

As for trolls, maybe you can find the meaning in the TOS or you could google the word.

I am not saying that a shooting didn't occur. I am just wondering at the lack of photos and videos in this digital age. If people can find more, please let me know - I'd prefer not to have to wonder about this.
Then don't.

No, it's not clear how the questions asked in this thread could be considered anything but questions. Nothing deranged about asking questions.
