Peter Lanza’s alleged reaction, according to FoxNews.com:
You know, it’s crossed my mind what I might say if someone was to call me or tell me that my child had just committed mass murder. I don’t know…I guess I would probably freak out, shouting, “Wtf are you talking about? What? Are you sure? OMG, what is going on??! What is going on?! Are you sure? Who can I contact? Is my child alright? Where are they??” All speculation, of course.
I guess if someone was telling me, first and foremost, that my child was dead or maybe dead or in jail, I would not naturally assume it wasn’t them or have no reaction – not because I would assume they were guilty, but rather because I would want to know they were safe and alright. I would beg for more information from whoever was giving me the information in the first place.
My natural inclination would not be to assume that the bad news had nothing to do with my child – my inclination, I believe, would be to ask as many questions as possible, figure out what was going on and hopefully find my child safe and sound.
All speculation of course.
I read this article by Brian Madrid:
Okay, so…was Adam’s mom, Nancy, at school or not? This article suggests she was not at the school at the time of the shooting. It states she was killed in her home prior to the shooting.
She was killed in her home.
Then the article states he, inexplicably, went to the school after killing his mother? It says that Adam was seen on surveillance and that he eventually made his way to the kindergarten class where his mother taught.
The article states, “…and began to fire on the assigned teacher…” Huh? Why was there an assigned teacher? I’ve read that Adam and his mother had had an argument that morning. Had she called the school and said she was going to be late hence the “assigned teacher?” Or was she taking the day off already? Or did she just not show up for school (because her son had killed her) and they had someone fill in until they knew what was going on? Is that why earlier articles said he drove to the school in his mom’s car?
Seriously? He killed his mom at home and then STILL went to her school and shot innocent children. Good God.
Is the gist of this then that Adam killed his dad in New Jersey, drove to his mom’s in Newtown, killed her and then drove to the school? HOW WAS HE ABLE TO TRAVEL SO FAR AND KILL SO MANY? WTF happened with this guy?
He did not kill his father.
Adam’s neighbor is not surprised that it was Adam:
And we still have news out there that Adam’s girlfriend and another friend are missing.
And another question: Why would they arrest his brother? I mean, I realize Adam might have had his brother’s ID on him, but still…so they find an ID on a shooter whose dead, right? Ok, so why would they then go run out and arrest someone else?
His brother posted on FB that he was on his way home from work. So the police nabbed him when he got off the bus? Thinking what? He was the shooter? An accomplice? I don’t understand.
And Ryan’s response on FB? It seemed odd at best, knowing that his father, mother and brother were all dead. Let’s not forget what his brother did at the school and how many innocent lives were lost there. Is it possible that Ryan had no idea that it was his brother yet? That he didn’t know his family was dead?
Updated Adam Lanza information:
Adam may have been April 22, 1992. No quotes here yet.
ABC News Update (and we know how accurate it can be):
– ABC News is reporting that Ryan, Adam’s brother, described Adam as having a “personality disorder,” either Asperger’s or a form of autism.
– Ryan stated he had not seen Adam since 2010.
– Neighbors described Adam as “odd”
– The three weapons were registered to Nancy, Adam’s mother.
– It does not appear that Adam’s father had had recent contact with Adam
