Newtown gunman Adam Lanza may
have wanted to join Marines or
other military

New York Daily News, by Erik Ortiz

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 12/20/2012 5:55:42 PM

Troubled gunman Adam Lanza once considered joining the Marines, a demanding career that his mother ultimately decided wouldn’t be the right fit her antisocial son, a family friend claims. While mom Nancy Lanza liked that her 20-year-old son could be given purpose and structure, she knew that serving in the armed forces wasn’t something that he could handle, friend Ellen Adriani told the Connecticut Post. He even said he could join another branch of the military if the Marines didn’t pan out, the newspaper reported Thursday. “It became overwhelmingly clear to her that (military service) wasn’t right for him," said Adriani,

Uh oh. Time to ban the military. Or just take their guns away. What do they need guns for anyway?

If the Marines fought five and six-year olds, he would have been perfect, eh?

So Ada´s mother was well taken care of in the divorce agreement, 289,000 dollars a year in alimony, health care, a very expensive house. Sweet deal.
She also, according to several different reports, liked to do the pub crawl, was a regular in several local watering holes.
And her oldest son got out of town in 2010 and never went back...
There is a picture emerging in my mind of a pretty bad situation in that home, especially when you throw in the guns.

Something tells me that seeking to join the USMC would be a waste of time for Adam. He just does not appear that he would have fit in, although if he got into the Army, he might have got along with types like the PFC who was supplying Wikileaks with classified US documents.

At 20, the decision was not his mothers to make. The recruiters would have laughed and politely made that decision when they met him at the door. One does not just pop in and sign up. Acceptance can take months, including a lengthy background check and considerably physical preparation. People who think any moron can be accepted into the Marines are very mis-informed. There is a reason it´s called the few and the proud.

I doubt that he would have passed the physical or mental evaluation for ANY Service. Let alone the basic background check considering his "educational background". The only reason he might not have known that fact is the his Mother didn´t want him to enlist in the military and I doubt he even contacted a recruiter.

I think that those of you who are completely negating him joining the Marines are overlooking the single minded focus some sufferer´s from Asperger´s Syndrome can have. If instead of discouraging him from joining, his mother had presented it as a challenge that would be difficult for him to overcome, the desire to join MAY have caused him to compensate for his problems (mental and physical) in such a manner as to make him a fit recruit. If he had accomplished such a change, the discipline of being in the military would likely have fixed the rest of his problems. The military is not my first choice for fixing people who have discipline problems (which was at least part of his problem), but it is often very effective at doing so.

Seems like Hillary used this explanation one time way back when, trying to change the subject from one or another of her frequent missteps. I guess just saying you want to be a Marine makes you honorable in some circles.

If the worm had any kind of guts, Come and try an attack on a Marine Base, take your best shot because that´s the only shot you will have, you POS. Sorry, I had to use a LOT of restraint on this post for my comments.

I wouldn´t call say she was "raising him as a single mother" if they divorced in 2009. He would have been 17. That´s one year away from majority. He was ´raised´ in a 2-parent household.

She wasn´t raising him anymore, she was caretaking for a young adult with mental issues.

I don´t think the media understands that this article is newsworthy solely because of what it shows us about the media:
1. They have no idea what a fact is.
2. They are so far removed from military service they think any psycho can walk in and join.

Re #6, the monetary agreement had to do with Nancy Lanza´s agreement to take care of Adam Lanza for the rest of his life, if need be. It was to pay for their living expenses, and his medical and educational expenses. Whatever he needed.

Family friends would strongly disagree with #6´s evaluation. She was known to be a kind woman, a good and caring mother. Soft-spoken.

Her "pub crawl" involved "My Place", a local restaurant (described by the media as a "sports bar") where she met her friends and often took Adam to dinner. Here it is. Just see how decadent it is...

http://www.myplacepizza.com/

One comment was that it had the "best food in town". Remember that Newtown is a very small town. We have a similar place in our town where sports fans hang out, families dine with elders and kids, soccer teams go after games, etc., etc., etc. Like I said, decadent.

Her "sweet deal" included a life of devotion to a child who was born damaged. I´m waiting to hear someone waffle on abortion. How would you have done with such a child? How would you have dealt with him? Remember that he father split long before the 2008 divorce filing. Some neighbors don´t recall his ever living in the house, which Nancy Lanza and the boys moved into 17 years ago.

I would be ashamed to write some of what I see on these threads, written about a family none of us knows anything about other than what we have read or been told by the media.

Wow. That place his mother hung out in was really bad:

Serving great food, with great service at reasonable prices has been the mantra at Newtown´s My Place Restaurant for over 30 years.

From individual diners to business meetings to special gatherings, and of course, families, My Place Pizza and Restaurant is a great place for anyone to enjoy a delicious meal in a welcoming atmosphere. We even have a great kid´s menu, equipped with toys and coloring material and a choice of a tossed salad, fruit cup, or applesauce with their entrees.

His supposedly wanting to join the Marines was probably because of the sterling reputation of the Marine Corps. However, I doubt he would have been accepted, or succeeded, in any military service. I have known fellows with only minor disabilities who were discharged during basic training.

I have read accounts that confirm what you say, #23. Mrs. Lanza apparently had the job of raising both sons alone for a long time. She may not have realized how very sick her son was--after all, he killed her, too.

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who was praised as the most popular Spanish writer since Cervantes, died today in Mexico City at the age of 87. Garcia Marquez, a former journalist who was born in Colombia but lived in Mexico for more than 30 years, is best known for his 1967 masterpiece, the epic, hallucinatory novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, about the trials and tribulations of one family over several generations. Widely taught in college, it has sold about 50 million copies in more than 25 languages. His other novels include Autumn of the Patriarch (1975), about a pathological fascist

At least 12 people are dead and more than 2,000 homes have been destroyed by a large fire that wreaked havoc over the weekend in Valparaiso, Chile. Some 10,000 people have been forced to evacuate parts of the port city. Government spokesman Álvaro Elizalde says those figures are likely to go up as the fire continues to burn. The fire has been driven by strong winds, and efforts to fight the flames also have been complicated by the area´s steep terrain and lack of essential infrastructure, as NPR´s Lourdes Garcia-Navarro reports for our Newscast unit.

Amnesty: President Obama often laments "our broken immigration system" as a reason for his failure to enforce its laws. But as a wave of illegals is about to descend here, the hard fact is that it´s his own policies that broke it. The nonpartisan Inter-American Development Bank and the Migration Policy Institute both reported optimal conditions for a big wave of illegal immigration into the U.S. from Mexico and Central America soon. Based on the slowdown in China´s economy, a recovery in U.S. low-skilled jobs such as construction, and rising U.S. interest rates, it´s fair enough.

KANO, Nigeria – A child bride forced into marriage in Nigeria killed a groom and three of his friends with a poisoned meal, police said Thursday. Fourteen-year-old Wasila Umaru was married last week to 35-year-old Umaru Sani, according to assistant superintendent Musa Magaji Majia. Over the weekend, the groom invited a dozen friends to celebrate at his Ungwar Yansoro village, about 60 miles from the northern city of Kano.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
