Motive behind Newtown killings
remains a mystery as latest theory
about Sandy Hook gunman Adam
Lanza is disputed

New York Daily News, by Erik Ortiz

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 12/19/2012 9:22:49 PM

The theory that Adam Lanza targeted an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., because his mother was going to have him committed was quickly disputed Tuesday. (Snip)Richard Flashman, a pastor at Beacon Hill Evangelical Free Church in nearby Monroe, was forced to put out a statement after his son told FoxNews.com that Lanza’s mother, Nancy, wanted to put him in a psychiatric facility. “I’ve just spoken to Josh,” Flashman said of his son, according to The Journal News. “As the Fox News article indicates, the information Josh spoke to them about was hearsay and not confirmed. I suggest

Comments:
Joshua Flashman, 25, who is all over Google and social networks as an "aspiring actor and model", and son of a Newtown pastor, has been trying to make a public name for himself with his second hand rumor about Nancy Lanza´s "plan" to commit Adam. Flashman´s father is the one disputing it. Scam artists come with various schticks....

Suspicions confirmed. When will we know the true facts in this matter? It would be to everyone´s benefit if police would release facts as known to quell the rumors, speculation, and scams. There won´t be a trial, so just release information as soon as it is confirmed.

Nicely done #1.
We´ll know the truth when the lawsuits begin. That´s how we role. The lawyers will smell money and then the truth will come out.

Weren´t the police telling us by Sunday that they had very good evidence of a motive? If they haven´t released the info yet it must reflect badly on the left. If it reflected badly on the right it would have been the only story in the media all week.

Title of the article "disputed" is very misleading

"the information Josh spoke to them about was hearsay and not confirmed. I suggest you do not run with the story."

Original reports state the request to commit the Adam Lanza were sealed (assume it´s the county court). If these documents are released, it will place the blame on the local government, state government. This story is about dysfunctional government, not gun control. We can´t "go there". This story will die soon.

Let us not lose sight of the fact that Lanza´s FATHER and brother are still alive and dealing with this.

Also, side note - to be confirmed by me - Lanza´s father is a GE executive.

Not inferring anything here, but we all know the cozy relationship between GE, NBC, and the White House.

Should I adjust my tin foil?

I don´t care why he did it. I care only that HE alone be held responsible for the act and that this Administration not be permitted to regulate guns used for individual protection.

Our Constitution (quaint, I know) says that our right to protect ourselves FROM THE GOVERNMENT, "...shall not be infringed." Sounds pretty final to me.

From the earliest reports Lanza had a dispute with 4 teachers at the school a few days before the attack. Three of the teachers were reportedly killed while one was absent that day and survived. My question is what was the nature of the dispute and why have we not heard more from the media?
Also, what have they learned from Lanza´s ISP provider regarding his internet activity? Crickets...

While there are too many rumors floating around about this incident recent history does suggest there will be evidence of a serious mental disorder.

If Adam Lanza turns out to have been schizophrenic, the onset would have most probably been in his late teens or early 20s. Thus all the blaming of his mother that has been going on here and elsewhere will turn out to have been misguided as well as very, very unkind.

Every report from everyone who knew them said that he was strange and displayed signs of what many of us know as autism or Asperger´s. The awful report from the barber that he wouldn´t look at him, just looked down? Not unusual with either syndrome. And those persons are not given to violence.

Many are making fools of themelves over this tragedy. I am sorry to see any of us here do the same. We are supposed to be a more intelligent, discerning crowd who don´t trust everything we read or hear in the media. It may take a long time for this tragedy to unfold. We may never know the reason. Do we always have to?

You can say one thing about the socialist liberals , they have zero common sense . They´ll keep attacking the messenger when the obvious goes right over their heads . If anyone at that school had had a weapon and used it , none of the attacks on the 2nd amm. would be happening . No speculations , no nothing . That is WHY , among other reasons , our Founders gave it to us .

Most of the original stories have been disputed, including the one at #9 about his having had a fight with the teachers at the school.

Other than his possibly having attended the school a number of years earlier, he and his mother had no connection with the school nor had they had any recent contact with it.

The media - including Fox - was so desperate to fill those awful empty hours that they gave an audience to anyone who called them with a tip, with no confirmation required.

As Lucianne remarks in her tagline, there is a good reason for double-sourcing everything one hears. Flashman´s father knew this when he heard his son had blathered to Fox about a rumor. He may know that HIS son has problems.

With the "facts" changing from day to day in this story, we may never understand why the gunman did what he did.

One thing I do understand better is that mental illness is a difficult thing and is especially hard for those who love the affected person. It appears that the shooters in Arizona, Colorado and Connecticut all suffered from mental illness and none of them were able to receive adequate treatment. Thanks to all the parents and professionals who have shared their stories and helped us understand that we need to have a national dialog about the the way we treat potentially-violent mentally ill people. Civil liberties are important, but so is public safety. We need a change in the laws and policies that deal those with mental illness. I don´t know what that should be, but we need to talk about it.

If video games can program someone with these two syndromes, or one-aspergers or autism, I wonder if a different kind of video game could program an autistic kid to be in the main-stream?
Also what about the "cloud", Don´t some of the corporations use the cloud for storage of info whether the subscriber know or not.
We hear stories that even "destroyed" computers have been able to be re-contituted. That there are chip or circuit areas that store thatare not the hard drive.
Did this murderer ever have a creditt card or an online account.

O: What do Benghazi and Newtown have in common?

A: They were both scenes of murder that happened because security was botched.

When schools were declared gun free zones by well-meaning but naïve liberal lawmakers, the stage was set for crackpots, lunatics or terrorists to slaughter our most vulnerable and innocent. Herding children together in schools and leaving them without protection is foolish in the extreme, but the Kumbaya crowd felt good about themselves when they anointed the schools sites with peace and love and none of those ugly instruments of death.

Those of us in Realsville are not so naïve.

It seems to me that this dysfunctional family had at it´s core a father who was not actively in his kid´s life. We don´t know why; perhaps the mom was a control freak, perhaps the dad just couldn´t take it and left, or perhaps the dad wanted to have his fun and walked out of the family. As a divorced single parent raising my kids without their dad living in the same state, it´s really tough. And my kids are not mentally ill. Sounds like the GE executive paid his ex off to get away from his kid. Congratulations on an epic failure of parenting. I don´t know why nobody is talking about the father´s responsibility, after all, the kid´s last name is LANZA.

My husband had surgery yesterday in a hospital which is a gun free zone with signs posted on both sides of every entrance. As I sat in the crowded cafeteria waiting for him to be moved to his room I couldn´t help but think how easy it would be for some wacko who was ticked at his doctor to waltz in there and mow down dozens of doctors, nurses, technicians etc. If there were security guards in the building, they weren´t in evidence.

I was suspicious of Flashman´s claims too. We may eventually find out whether Mrs. Lanza was applying for conservatorship (apparently those records are sealed, but perhaps with the death of the persons involved, the record will become public).

As bad as the MSM have been in their reporting, I´ve come to expect that. I´m more disappointed in the reaction of people posting comments on websites such as this one.

Posters have made dozens of angry assertions --especially against Lanza´s mother and his father -- based on assumptions they cannot assume.

And then we´ve had the parade of self-appointed experts who presume to lecture on "mental health" topics ... everything from Asperger´s and so-called schizophrenia to what medications Adam Lanza should have been taking (or conversely should not have been taking), or whether he should already have been locked away, etc ad absurdam.

There´s an old an adage about writing angry letters, then locking them in a desk drawer and never posting them. Some of our angry accusations, based on little knowledge, should face the internet equivalent of the locked drawer.

Apparently he killed himself after someone got there with a gun and he knew he was about to be killed. In this case that someone happened to be the Police but only after quite a few minutes of his unchallenged killing spree.

In an unrelated incident at a Utah shopping mall, a week before, a gunman killed himself after another shopper made him aware that he had a gun and was preparing to shoot the gunman.

This leads to the conclusion that perhaps if everyone had been packing a gun in full view in both instances, the gunmen would have realized that any killing spree would be instantly challenged and they would have just killed themselves at the start and no one else would have had to die.

All these mass killings are for the same reason or motive. These people all want their 15 minutes of fame and the lying media are more than willing to kill many in order to sell their media. This also means the next killing has to be worse than the last to make the big time.

Nice try, #26. They will do what they will do.

As for the goth-Satan stuff that the Daily Mail is pushing (it is a tabloid, folks - and sensationalism is what they do) it too is without basis, like most of the other rumors we´ve been subjected to. And some are intent on perpetuating as fact.

Shouldn´t we be getting ready for Christmas? And leaving these people alone?

I agree that the reported facts change daily with every new story I read. First there were three weapons. Then two pistols, the Glock and Sig Sauer, and the Bushmaster in the car. Then it was four weapons. This article says Lanza killed them with an assault weapon, no mention of pistols. Was the Sig Sauer a pistol or assault weapon?

mentally ill, is mentally ill...whether brillant or not, it can not be fixed, it can only be medicated. when the medicines don´t work sometimes you must commit, sometimes not...but like a toddler you NEVER take your eyes off them...you do not teach them to shoot guns and leave them in the basement to play games all day with no human contact...there was plenty of money, but was God a part of Adam Lanza´s life? this mother thought she could love and care for her son, failing to realized the forces of adulthood changed her fragile, timid boy into an angry, frustrated, devil until it was too late...and 20 babies were stolen from their mothers.

# 6 Bingo. We have a winner.
To paraphrase Carville-" It´s about mental health, Stupid " and not guns.
Lanza could have made a bomb or set a fire or run down the children with his car ,
as they were crossing the street.
Because of his illness , I doubt we will ever know what his motive was and what triggered it.
He probably didn´t even know.
The media is trying to find rational answers to the irrational.
While the Democrats and the media obsess about guns, there are other Lanzas out there , in waiting.
Too bad Obama didn´t spend Stimulus money on studies of the mentally ill, especially the issues
of the disturbed young males, including treatment,
proper diagnosis , genetic and biological influences , testing , commitment issues, lack of facilities, new medications, etc.
In fact ,Obamacare will probably stifle any advances in this area.
And Newtown´s horrible and inaccurate reporting has reinforced the abysmal state of the media today.

I keep getting the impression the majority of the information regarding Adam Lanza is not true. Some of the stories seem contradictory.

He was mentally ill, and killed 26 people before killing himself. His involvement with guns and video games are probably true. Beyond that???

He isn´t rational so don´t expect a rational motive.

Probably can come up with hundreds of motives and they would all be wrong.

He played computer games? Did he play online computer games? Did he have regular contact with anyone online? Its been reported he destroyed his computer hard drive. Why? Did his computer crash? Did mother turn off the internet to get him off the computer? Did he have a disagreement with someone online?

He seemed to have a ´comfort zone´, and something happened to take him out of it.

Not enough information...

First question, Qui Bono?, who benefits? Obviously the socialist fascist communist fanatics that want all private ownership of guns turned into a crime...that´s who qui bonos! Ties in with Heilary´s openly UN threats to take power over sovereign America to confiscate guns and close down the internet. If you´re Heilary, this professionally delivered slaughter could not have come a better time with Congress asleep at the cliff switch, and Obama acting like the bi-pass Congress dictator he wants to be. Next question, have you looked at the rich history of MK Ultra, imported post WWII German scientists who developed mind control for the State ? Sinatra and Frankenheimer’s MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, viewing now would be mindful of staged “patsy” assassinations. Even better! the second Manchurian candidate starring Denzel with needle injections in the brain, both with a mother who is the CIA “handler” of the patsy who is predictably killed. One more, TELEFON, Don Siegel directed Charles Bronson’s classic film about KGB brain washed who kill with a simple phone call. All big violence, draws gun cliche confiscation aftermath, even when guns are not used. Waco, Oklahoma’s Mc Murrah building, 9-11, other school killings where there is NO armed protection. Was Lanza masked? Was there more than one shooter? Is it conceivable that Newtown was staged?

A few observations:

1. Bad rare events make for exceptionally bad laws when people react emotionally alone and not rationally.

2. Hypocrisy of the media in not being overly concerned that many more people are killed in gun-controlled Chicago, and not all of them gangbangers. Can it be that reporters and editors are WHITE liberals who harbor a racist low expectation of law-abiding behavior among black inner city people?

3. Newtown murders would be dwarfed by government sanctioned killing if tomorrow Obama declared a dictatorship and could enforce it by taking away guns from the citizenry. It is not an impossibility. We have seen how Moochelle tries to ram down her vision of a healthy diet on school kids. These people obviously think they are smarter and therefore have the right to push their agenda into the personal lives of others. They also have shown the cold calculative disregard for the lives of those they are supposed to govern by their actions in the F&F fiasco and Benghazi.

I do not know what happened and will not guess or post another response on the subject.
This is fast becoming the kind of posting frenzy based on no quality information this site endured after the Utah kidnapping of Miss Smart . The threads became more and more vicious toward her parents and religion until it was hard to even believe the posters even cared about truth.
All the vindictive rants were proven totally opposite than what was a real stranger kidnapping.
Fights to change the Constitution should not be conducted using families in grief and sorrow.
Citizens should not use the sorrow to make political points.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

Interest was largely lost in that story as well on the part of the people that are responsible for deciding what goes on the news. OREILLY: So did they tell you, look, we don´t want

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance. Yet his fellow golfers do not sound relieved. They do not act as if reprieved. They spoke of this giant, haunting presence with neither fear nor reverence.(Snip)"He´s 38 now, he´s an old man," said Jason Day, the media

Another day, another terrifying computer security vulnerability. A hole in a widely used encryption technology has given hackers a way to infiltrate many of the world’s largest websites and download sensitive information from their servers without leaving a trace. The problem, dubbed Heartbleed, has existed for two years, but was recently discovered by researchers at Google, setting off a scramble to fix it. Trying to track new security vulnerabilities can be dizzying, but here’s why this one is worth paying attention to: It affects services you use. The problem is a shortcoming of OpenSSL, which is supposed to protect,

A U.N.-commissioned panel says climate change is hurting the growth of crops, affecting the quality of water supplies and forcing wildlife to change the way it lives – but what if it’s all just smoke and mirrors? A new report from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), written by an international collection of scientists and published by the conservative Heartland Institute, claims just that, declaring that humanity´s impact on climate is not causing substantial harm to the Earth.

IN A major development in the search for MH370, Angus Houston has confirmed the Ocean Shield has detected signals consistent with aircraft black boxes, describing the lead as the most promising yet. Air Chief Marshal Houston called the development significant, saying “this is the most promising lead, probably in the search so far, it’s probably the best information we’ve had”. The search coordinator told reporters more signals have been detected by a towed pinger locator deployed by the Australian vessel Ocean Shield. “Today, I can report some very encouraging information which has unfolded over the last 24 hours,” he told

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
