Who Kills 5-10 Year Old Children? This Guy Does*Updated

*I am not surprised that CNN initially reported that Ryan Lanza, rather than his younger brother Adam Lanza, is the deceased shooter in Newtown, Conn.

News agencies are reporting that cops got the two names mixed up. The latest info is that Adam Lanza was carrying his brother's ID when he shot and killed himself. In some odd way- that all makes sense to me.

MSM now stating Adam Lanza is the deceased suspect. Cops are questioning brother Ryan. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-57559316-504083/connecticut-school-shooting-suspected-shooter-now-idd-as-adam-lanza-older-brother-ryan-questioned-by-cops/

Back in the old days, I often speculated on why "would be" killers never showed up at the police station. It was simple. We have guns and we will use them. A guy even tried walking into a Detroit Police Station a few years later to shoot a few cops and test that theory. He is no longer with us.

So the cowards, guys like Adam Lanza, focus all of that pent up hostility and hatred on unarmed children. Killing them at will. These were 5-10 year old children just before Christmas. The body count rests at 28, at least 20 of whom were very young children.

What happened to reports of a second shooter? Apparently that report just disappeared.

Within an hour or two of the shootings, Zerohedge had posted Ryan Lanza's facebook page on it's blog as the alleged shooter. Mistakes travel every bit as fast as accurate info.  http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2012-12-14/newton-ct-elementary-school-shooting-tally-rises-27-dead-whom-14-children 

I don't think you'd be normal not to feel some anger for a guy that simply walks into a school and starts gunning down innocent children. How can you explain shooting innocent little kids? Hint- don't try. It's useless. 

There is nothing to be gained from getting angry about the depressed and mentally ill. They used to frustrate the hell out of me. For the most part, they present themselves as fairly normal- especially when they are medicated. Trust me, I can tell you with 100% certainty that this guy suffered from mental illness. 

So is that an excuse for what he did? No actually, and I doubt Adam Lanza would invoke one. He doesn't care. All of that anger, rage, and hostility was just looking for a flash point. His needs are self centered- completely self absorbed. Now we are finding out that Lanza's mother worked at the school and he killed her too. Shot her in the face. That's a big clue.

Our world is full of people who are angry and depressed. I'm not sure our society has the where with all  or the money to arm every venue against attack. 

The problem runs so much deeper than the usual and shallow rhetoric that will be discussed in the days and weeks to come. The people with agendas will be out- the anti gun people. The media will discuss this bullshit ad nauseum. 

Adam Lanza suffered from some serious mental health issues, that is a given. Adam is a symptom of a society that thinks the solution for depressed people is a bottle of Prozac or some pot. I think that we are going to find that Adam Lanza suffered from a whole life long laundry list of issues and one day- he just snapped. The problem is much larger, more uncomfortable and complex, than most people care to think about. Except guys like me. I am actually comfortable talking about the things that disturb us.

So I think I'll try and tackle that on Sunday.

Well, buddy, that's apparently not the shooter. It's probably another Ryan Lanza.

It wasn't Ryan Lanza it was his little brother Adam. Leave it to the retards at CNN to get it wrong just to be first.

In a perfect world, there would never be a mistake. Ever.

Thanks D. Came home and did the usual editing. Not surprised. Thanks.

Police officials now are saying Adam was carrying his brother's wallet and ID. After shooting himself it might have been difficult to ID him.
