Seems that two local Sandy Hook parents by the name of "Nick and Laura Phelps" who appeared on CNN a day after the shooting are in fact two operatives exposed by internet researcher Ed Chiarini nearly a year ago. He claims that their real names are Richard and Jennifer Sexton, Jennifer coming from the wealthy jewish Greenberg family, Maurice (jennifer's father) being the former head of AIG. He posted pictures of the two in a YouTube video back in May of this year, and claims members of this family played the roles of fictional victims in the Tucson shooting rampage from Jan. 2010.
The photo to the left was taken from the Sexton family album that is publicly available on the picasa web album: https://picasaweb.google.com/108353779637663365536

Clearly they are a match. This one tidbit right here shows this incident has more than meets the eye and is a possible Psy-Op against the American public.
Here is a video of a parent of one of the "slain" children. Take note this press conference he did was done about less than 48 hours after the incident, and look at this man's behavior. He is smiling and laughing before he makes his speech, and then he pauses and breathes heavily and just like a good actor, goes through a routine to get into "character" and makes his speech which is not even convincing. Not one tear from this man. His eyes do not even swell up. And his daughter supposedly was brutally murdered less than 48 hours ago. I don't know about you but this is some very bad acting.
Sandy Hook massacre: Official story spins out of control
By Niall Bradley, VETERANS TODAY
The massacre of 20 children and 7 adults at the Sandy Hook elementary school last Friday was one more in a long line of atrocious mass murders committed in the USA. By now, five days later, an official version of events has more or less solidified to explain the chain of events. The familiar ‘lone gunman’ narrative has once more stoked the hot-button issue of gun control and left the general population as clueless as ever as to why people suddenly ‘go postal’ and target the most vulnerable members of society.
On closer inspection, however, there is clearly more to many of these mass shootings than meets the eye. Very often the earliest reports present information that directly contradicts key foundations of the final ‘official’ analysis of events. Granted, confusion is natural when a story breaks, but some of the initial reports conflict so completely with the lone gunman narrative that I’m going to compile them here and then try to put this tragedy in a more objective context. In his speech at the Sandy Hook Interfaith Prayer Vigil in Newtown, Connecticut on Sunday night, President Obama quoted the following biblical passage:
“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
~ 2 Corinthians 4:18
The traumatised Newtown community deserves the facts without the spin. Everyone touched by this brutal event deserves to know what really happened, so let’s fix our eyes on what remains unseen…
A 20-year-old ‘tech geek’ named Adam Lanza is supposed to have snapped early last Friday, December 14th, shot dead his mother Nancy Lanza, loaded her car up with her guns and ammo, then driven it across town to his former school, the Sandy Hook Elementary School, shot dead 27 people in two classrooms and an adjoining hallway, then turned one of his guns on himself.
That’s how most will now remember the shooting, but is that actually what happened?
All the child victims were first-graders between the ages of 6 and 7. If there’s any saving grace to be found in this event, it’s that it was all over within minutes. Police were reportedly on the scene “instantaneously”, according to Connecticut State Police Commander, Lt. Vance and by then the shooting had ended. Listed among the slain school teachers and administrative staff was the school principal, 47-year-old Dawn Hochsprung. Right here we encounter our first problem:
The Newtown Bee
December 14, 2012
Sandy Hook School Principal Dawn Hochsprung told The Bee that a masked man entered the school with a rifle and started shooting multiple shots – more than she could count – that went “on and on.”
How could the principal have survived to give this statement to local press describing what happened … if she was one of the first to be killed? Incidentally, The Newtown Bee‘s article was taken down on Monday December 17th. Of course, a plausible explanation is that a reporter mistook another teacher for the principal.
We were initially told that two handguns – a Glock and a Sig Sauer – were found next to the body of the dead shooter, while a third weapon, a .223-caliber rifle was also recovered “in the trunk of a car” later, in the school’s parking lot. All of the weapons were allegedly legally bought and registered in Nancy Lanza’s name. The car was later identified as a black Honda, also registered in her name. More weapons have since been introduced to the story but we’ll get back to those later on.
Besides anonymous ‘law enforcement officials’ telling the media that Adam Lanza was a former pupil at the school, they also said his mother was currently a teacher there, that she was found among the dead and that her son had specifically sought out her classroom first. But when it emerged that teaching staff at the school had never heard of a Nancy Lanza, it was suggested that she was a substitute teacher whose name therefore mightn’t appear on staff lists.
But this claim too has disappeared down the memory hole because it’s now known that Nancy had no connection with the school. Adam Lanza was in fact home-schooled. Nancy Lanza has since been painted as a “survivalist” who loved firearms, taught her sons how to shoot and was “stockpiling” because she was “worried about economic collapse.”
Daily Mail, UK
December 16, 2012
Last night it also emerged Nancy was a member of the Doomsday Preppers movement, which believes people should prepare for end of the world.
Her former sister-in-law Marsha said she had turned her home ‘into a fortress’. She added: ‘Nancy had a survivalist philosophy which is why she was stockpiling guns. She had them for defense.
‘She was stockpiling food. She grew up on a farm in New Hampshire. She was skilled with guns. We talked about preppers and preparing for the economy collapsing.’
It’s not difficult to see that their efforts to insinuate that Nancy Lanza was somehow responsible for this massacre by being an irresponsible mother also serve to rile the large contingent of gun owners in the country, particularly the far-right who see a conspiracy on the government’s part to “take back our guns.” More on that later, but for now I just want to note that all of the Lanza family members seemed to live more or less normal middle-class lives. Yes, the parents were divorced, but it was apparently amicable and both put their own needs second to those of their children (and anyway, divorce in the US these days is decidedly ‘normal middle class’).
Despite “family insiders” claiming that he was a “deeply disturbed kid”, Adam Lanza, like so many other alleged ‘lone(r) gunmen’ before him, does not fit the profile of a mass-murdering maniac. His 24-year-old brother, Ryan Lanza, said he hadn’t seen his brother since 2010. This fact brings into question Ryan’s claim that his younger brother may have had his identity card on his person at the school shooting. Although perhaps the question that needs to be asked here is, why would a person bother to carry identification with them after going to the trouble of dressing up in a bullet-proof vest, mask and black camouflage gear and going on a killing spree …
The live emergency services audio feed from the scene reveals some interesting observations from first responders that have been completely overlooked by the mainstream media. Note that the unedited version lasts over two hours, so the abridged version I’m going to quote from has a compressed sequence of events that are not in real time. In this abridged version, we hear at 1.38′ a report that gunfire is still being heard, even though the shooting was supposed to have ended by the time police arrived. The next report at 2.35′ says that the shooting has stopped and the school is “in lockdown”. At 3.23′, the police relay a teacher’s report that she saw “two shadows running past the gym”. This is followed by another officer on the scene who says, “Yeh, we got ‘em, they’re coming at me! … [inaudible] … coming up the driveway real slowly!” That same officer at 5.40′ says he has them “proned out”, which presumably means he has apprehended them and they are laid out on the ground, before another officer comes on to say, “be aware that we do have a second [inaudible] …”
Later on, at 19.10′, an officer who sounds out of breath, like he’s just given chase, reports what I think sounds like “these guys” followed certainly by “multiple weapons, including long rifles and shotgun”. If these were found so early on, why were they not included in the initial press reports which stated that three firearms had been found – the above mentioned Glock, Sig Sauer and Bushmaster AR-15 rifle? Further conflicting, and possibly planted evidence was thrown into the mix by ‘law enforcement officials’ when they published video footage of a long weapon being retrieved from the trunk of a car. Look closely and you’ll see that it’s a shotgun, not a rifle. In addition, this ‘discovery’ was made late in the day (it’s dark outside), while the Bushmaster rifle was first reported found “in the trunk of a car” much earlier in the day. This would logically suggest that the rifle and shotgun were found in the trunks of two different cars.
Besides the above two suspects “proned out” in front of the school, another suspected gunman was apprehended after he gave chase, this time in the woods next to the school:
The police are clearly chasing someone whom they appear to apprehend in the middle of the woods next to the school, a fact confirmed by several eyewitnesses:
This fleeing suspect, wearing camouflage gear, a bulletproof vest and armed with four guns, has since disappeared from media coverage. Who was this person and how did he know what “it” was when he protested that “I didn’t do it”?
Perhaps most astonishingly, this suspect arrested in the woods was named in an Associated Press report as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza. The original report has long since vanished of course, but you can see it referenced here. This was despite the fact that Ryan had already been named as the deceased suspect inside the school, lying next to two handguns.
Ryan Lanza was actually at work in Hoboken, New Jersey, that morning when his name and photo began circulating in the media. And so, for most of Friday, the ‘lone shooter’ was erroneously reported as “Ryan Lanza, confirmed dead.” At the same time, we were being told that Ryan’s girlfriend and a room-mate were reported missing, also from Hoboken, New Jersey.
So this isn’t just a case of mistaken identity, as later claimed when it was suggested that Adam had a piece of identification belonging to his brother on his person. Not one, but BOTH Lanza brothers were being placed by ‘law enforcement officials’ at the scene of the shooting. It could be that Ryan’s quick reflexes to leave his workplace to get on a bus to go back to his apartment while protesting innocence via his Facebook page may have saved his life.
Now remember, all of this confusion somehow resulted from a single guy going into a school and shooting children and teachers and then shooting himself, all within three to five minutes. Surely it should have been fairly easy to rapidly and concretely identify the details of such a crime and a rough layout of the scene?
What it’s starting to look like is that the Lanzas were framed for this mass shooting in advance. Long before any suspects were named, and even as we were being told that Nancy Lanza was among the dead at the school, we were told that police were investigating a murder in … Hoboken, New Jersey, where a body had been found at the home of … Ryan Lanza! An older “confirmed” version of events had RYAN, not Adam, travelling to Hoboken that morning to murder his father before going to the school in Newtown, Connecticut. Other variants had Ryan OR Adam going to both their divorced parents’ homes and killing them before going to the school.
The narrative has now settled on the younger brother killing his mother in Newtown then going to the school. So what about the rest of it? Do we just put it down to ‘keen’ journalism that was having a field day last Friday as media outlets sought to bring us the latest ‘breaking news’? Confusion and ‘Chinese whispers’ undoubtedly play a part in the early stages of national media events, but I think back to those news anchors reading scripts about Osama Bin Laden within minutes of the first plane being hit on 9/11 and I think, ‘Wait a minute!’ All these misleading reports had to have been issued by someone or some people “confirming” to Associated Press and other media outlets that the Ryans’s father had been murdered [he wasn't even aware that the shooting at the school had taken place until journalists turned up on his doorstep], or that Ryan’s girlfriend had gone missing from Hoboken, or that either Ryan or Adam were pulled out of the adjacent woods in handcuffs yelling “I DIDN’T DO IT” to assembled parents. These aren’t just ‘little details’ that can be confused for other details, these are detailed narratives. So how, or why, would any member of the press come up with such details? They strike me as a set of alternative scenarios that might have found their way into the official narrative had facts on the ground turned out differently.
Watch this snippet of State Police Lt. Paul Vance at the press conference he gave the day after the shootings. His answer is as bizarre as it is revealing. When asked whether Nancy Lanza had any connection with the school, he replied defensively about something that is both unrelated and arguably the most significant fact that completely undermines the official narrative: the arrest of a second gunman in the woods: http://youtu.be/qid9sE51d1k
Most of the initial mainstream media reports have since been rewritten to fit ‘new’ facts proclaimed by ‘law enforcement officials’. Here’s an example from Business Insider. The following excerpts are the opening paragraphs from the ‘same’ article, one earlier original version, followed by the later revised version:
The massacre [...] was reportedly perpetrated with a .233 caliber rifle, a Glock pistol and a Sig Sauer pistol.
The Bushmaster rifle was found in the trunk of the shooter’s car. The Sig Sauer and Glock pistols were the only weapons used in the shooting, according to CBS. Now the question is what kind of magazine would allow a shooter to fire “100″ rounds in such a short period.
Indeed, I was wondering the same thing. How could two pistols do so much damage? The report was updated as follows:
The massacre in Connecticut that’s taken the lives of at least 26 people was reportedly perpetrated with a .223 caliber rifle, a Glock pistol and a Sig Sauer pistol, according to NBC:
The shooter was using one Sig Sauer and one Glock pistol, according to CNN. Later details emerged that the primary weapon was the Bushmaster “assault-style” rifle.
Altogether, though, it doesn’t matter what type of weapon the shooter used. The bottom line is that it was likely a magazine fed, semi-automatic, with enough rounds to shoot “100 shots” in a matter of minutes, as quoted in USA Today.
What actually happened may not matter to some, but surely a journalist’s role is to at least try to find out?

The rifle was left in the trunk, leaving ‘Adam Lanza’ just the two handguns to let off “hundreds of rounds”… firing .233 caliber bullets that belonged to the rifle… which was left in the car
This Associated Press/Newsday article on Saturday, December 15th, reported that “Only the rifle was used on the victims“, a statement that is supported by Dr. H. Wayne Carver II, Connecticut state’s chief medical examiner. Of the seven autopsies he personally performed on Sandy Hook victims, all of them had “three to 11 wounds apiece”. He also said that the ‘gunman’ used a military-style rifle rigged to quickly reload, and that the ‘shooter’ was able to reload so quickly because he had “taped two magazines together.” Even before the State Chief Medical Examiner had given these statements, it had been stated that spent shell casings from .233-caliber (rifle) bullets were found inside the school.
So all the victims’ wounds were the result of rifle-fire, specifically from “the rifle”, the one we were told in early reports was found in the trunk of a car in the parking lot! This is simply not credible.
Remember that only “the rifle” was used on all the victims. If only this rifle was used, and if we try to make this claim fit into the (admittedly fluid) official version of events, then the alleged lone gunman would have had to leave the school, place the rifle back in his trunk, then return inside the school and shoot himself. No one reported any such maneuver on the part of any gunman or gunmen. What we do have, however, is live emergency services radio feed in which we hear that two men have been apprehended and are “proned out” AND live video footage supported by eyewitness testimony showing what appears to be a THIRD man being arrested by police in the woods.
We can see how the authorities’ hands are tied because they need to fit all the facts into the usual ‘lone gunman’ narrative. For that, there can only be ONE rifle and a couple of handguns. The problem is that they have already claimed to find that solitary Bushmaster rifle in the trunk of a car in the school parking lot, so the earliest police reports of a cache of long arms being found inside the school will no longer fit with the lone gunman narrative, especially as they’re now saying that he had already opened fire as he burst into the school.
Could “scrawny” 20-year-old Adam Lanza have stormed the school, solo Rambo-style, while carrying “multiple long arms, including rifles and shotguns”? Only one person was wounded. Everyone else who was shot was killed. How could Adam Lanza achieve such deadly accuracy, in such a short length of recorded time?
Initial reports put the beginning of the shooting in the school administrators’ office, where someone, reportedly the school principal, had a confrontation with the gunman(men). We know this because someone supposedly turned on the school intercom system, alerting the teaching staff to the loud swearing and commotion in the principal’s office and probably saving many more children from being gunned down as teachers took measures to hide the children in closets.
One brave teacher, Kaitlin Roig, bundled a bunch of children into a bathroom and locked the door. What’s interesting about her testimony to ABC News is that when police arrived and asked her to open the door, she refused, saying that “if they were really cops, they’d know where to find keys to open the door.” In addition, she requested that they slide their badges under the door.
Now, this is generally a smart thing to do in any and all interactions with the police, especially in the U.S. But to have the wherewithal to do so under such traumatic circumstances strongly suggests that Ms. Roig had logically deduced by that point that multiple perpetrators were involved, and that they were either impersonating police officers or were indistinguishable from SWAT team police commandos, either in the way they dressed or the way they behaved upon entering the building. It also reminds us just how narrow the time window of the actual shooting was. The shooting appears to have barely ended when men knocked on that bathroom door and told Ms. Roig they were police.
There are also conflicting reports about how the gunmen entered the building. We were told initially that they came in through the main front entrance and proceeded straight to the administrators’/principal’s offices. But Sandy Hook elementary school has a security system with a video monitor, which allows staff to screen visitors before buzzing them in. A “masked gunman dressed in black tactical combat gear” from head to toe would kinda raise red flags, don’t you think?
Another possible anomaly is that Victoria Soto, one of the teachers killed at the school, appears to have had an ‘in memoriam’ Facebook page created in her name four days before the shooting.
Regarding this alleged ‘LIBOR scandal’ connection between this shooting and the Aurora theater shooting, there is as yet zero evidence to support the claim that either father of Lanza or Holmes were going to testify to anyone about anything, so for now this must remain just another rumor. I rather think that this is being spread to create the impression of a direct link that can be easily refuted, as in a straw man argument. The obvious and direct link staring everyone in the face is that the official accounts of these events are hocus-pocus. The glaring connection between these two shootings, the Sikh Temple shooting and the Fort Hood shooting is that multiple gunmen were reported at the time by eyewitnesses, but they are now all officially claimed to have been carried out by ‘lone gunmen’. This logically tells us that the real perpetrators are being protected with cover stories of what really happened because if the truth were known, some section of the U.S. government would be implicated.
To the two posters above me, yea no need for tin foil hats because yes these are serious questions that need to be answered. One of them is this and I hope the two above can answer this, why is it that the mainstream media keep saying the car that Adam Lanza drove to the school was his mother's when clear evidence show this was not the case? And why has the mainstream media not picked up on this and the police not followed up on this damning piece of evidence?
As it turns out the car is not Mrs Lanza's but is actually registered to a CHRISTOPHER RODIA.
It all started listening to a official police audio recording from the morning of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting on December 14th 2012.
This is an unedited recording of the Newtown Police and Fire Dept. and Connecticut State Police radio traffic by Radioman911.com
Audio provided by RadioReference.com
Note: The digital noises that are heard throughout the recording are encrypted transmissions. An effort was made to reduce the volume of those transmissions during the recording process. In the audio the scanner recording at about 30:24, the police officer reports that he has a possible suspect vehicle and lists off the license plate: 872-YEO
Shortly after this, about 20 sec. in they say and spell the name of the registered owner of the vehicle:
Christopher A. Rodia
A shocking detail was discovered after looking at pictures of the Killers car Adam Lanza. If you have followed the mainstream media, the last story we were told was that Adam Lanza killed his mother (shot her in the head 3 or 4 times) stole her car (Black Honda Civic) and drove to Sandy Hook Elementary school and killed 20 children and 6 Adults. The car of the crime scene, shown on tow truck and parked in front of school in several images: A black Honda Civic. License plate number is only visible on one picture where the car is on the tow truck in the first image. License plate number: 872-YEO
original photo taken by mcloughlinphotography.com...
More on the license plate, someone run the license plate, and it is registered until 09/14/14 VALID
Who is Christopher A Rodia?
He was identified as the car owner, and they spelled out the license plate to us: 872-YEO We were told that the car belonged to Nancy Lanza, Adams mother.They also showed a video where the gun was removed, a long gun from the trunk of that vehicle:
What we have found out so far about Christopher A Rodia:
He is a 42 year old man from Norwalk CT. He has quite a list of previous drug and burglary charges, seems to be big on stealing leaf blowers and is currently awaiting trial for at least his 5th count of stealing a leaf blower. He had an active arrest warrant on October 8th. One of the more recent times he has been in the news was for stealing copper wire from a construction site with his 19 year old niece, Cassandra Scire,19. His court hearing was only yesterday 12/21/2012 for Larceny, Forgery and Narc possession.
The entire family seems to be criminal, his brother Dennis Rodia, 44, of 1 Gregory Ave., Norwalk, was given charges that included possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a day-care center and possession of narcotics with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a day-care. Dennis Rodia, 44, and his mother Lilli Rodia, 67, of 1 Gregory Blvd., Norwalk, were charged with possession of narcotics, possession of narcotics with intent to sell, illegal possession of narcotics within 1,500 feet of a school and possession of narcotics with intent to sell within 1,500 feet of a school.
The basic premise is: the car parked in front of the school with the guns in the trunk is very likely NOT Adam Lanza's, but instead belongs to a man named Christopher A. Rodia, who lives about 35 miles away in Norwalk, CT, and is currently facing multiple felony charges.
The main pieces of evidence that support this:
- In police radio recordings from that morning, they report a "possible suspect vehicle" with CT license plate 872 YEO; shortly afterward, they identify this plate as being registered to Christopher A. Rodia.
- In news reports with that photo of the car on a flatbed, it is always pointed out as being the car Adam Lanza drove to Sandy Hook with, and it does look just like the car that was roped off in front of the school, which they later removed multiple guns from. This car has CT license plate 872 YEO.
The car is certainly the main issue, at least for the moment. Most especially because we have some official proof some kind of bs is going on.
The camo pants guy in the woods Christopher Mazedonia (supposedly a father of a child ), is still suspicious, especially when corroborated with the two shooter issue as first reported by teachers, he was moving toward the parking lot, would a father run away?
Why would he say: "I didn't do it" as claimed by a "witness" in a video
And certainly the teacher Lauren Rousseau’s car being riddled with bullets contradicts the official story to an extent that something else happened which we don’t yet know.
According to Rousseau, the slain teacher’s 2004 Honda Civic — parked outside the school — was riddled with bullets when authorities removed the vehicle.
The official story says these bullet holes came from the shooter from inside the school, yet looking at the pics those look more like exit holes meaning the bullets would have been shot from inside the car!
-The initial official report goes that all the victims were shot with bullets that came from a semi automatic rifle. But how can this be when it was reported that the shooter's body was found with only 2 handguns and the rifle was later found inside the trunk of the car the shooter drove? And even this is being disputed as other reports say it was a shotgun found in the car.
-There are reports and witness testimony that there was more than one shooter involved. According to police radio transmissions and witnesses there were two armed suspects apprehended in the woods near the school who were making a run for it. Some how this has been erased from public record and the mainstream media did not even follow up on this as if it never happened. Who were these two armed men and why were they allowed to walk free?
-The Car that Adam drove a black Honda Civic has been parroted by the media and police as owned by his mother and yet official police radio transmissions and a quick research on the license plate proves it was registered to a criminal named Chris Rodia. And the tabs were still good up until 2014! Why hasn't mainstream media followed up on this?
-News interviews conducted on the families of the slain children displayed odd behavior that does not seem to match grieving individuals who had lost a family member to brutal murder less than 48 hours prior. Case in point the bad acting job of Mr. Parker, the wierd inconsistent ramblings of Gene Rosen.
-Two of the so called "parents" a Nick and Laura Phelps who were interviewed on CNN have been found out have completely different identities and names as evidenced by the pictures posted on social media sites. And this same couple seem to have been involved in another high profile mass shooting in 2010!
There are many more inconsistencies to this that will come to light in due time.
^ interesado lang ako dun sa sinasabi mong inconsistent na details about sa parents.
Ibig sabihin, hindi talaga namatay ang mga anak nila? Or alam nilang papatayin?
So ibig bang sabihin, staged lang ang lahat? At buhay ang mga victims?
Is that it?
Dahil kung ganun, aba masayang balita yan!
if people can pull off a stage event as big as the 9/11 then anything is possible in AMERIKA
Mass shootings in AMERIKA conspiracy or not will surely lead to one thing..the Disarming of American civilians and by that means chaos..magsasaya lahat ng anti AMERIKANS nito they want AMERIKA burn and destroy itself
I do not know if anyone died or not. We only know what was shown to us by the mainstream media. About the parents reactions, look at the internview with one of the parents Robbie Parker, it is downright wierd. This is a guy who just "lost" a daughter less than 2 days earlier and he is seen laughing and smiling right before he gives an interview and then suddenly turns on a switch and goes into character and shows no emotion, no tears at all! You don't act this way if you lose a very close family member less than 2 days earlier. Watch:
And then here is another interview by a guy who claims to bring 6 of the kids from the school into his home during the shooting! This man is either a good actor or a good LIAR:
More interviews with family members who do not seem to show any real convincing sadness or grief while talking about their child being murdered less than a couple days earlier, NO TEARS AT ALL!:
^ actually, ang totoo niyan, dati ko pa napansin yan, yung si Mr. Parker, sa interview, parang off nga ang facial expression niya, nag pa presscon pa nga diba, pero inisip ko na lang that time, baka ganun lang talaga siya mag mourn.
May isa pa eh yung family nung teacher, lahat sila naka smile sa interview, pero naisip ko, baka kaya ganun, kasi hero daw ang kamag anak nila for shielding those children, so naiisip ko that time, baka they're just happy, na yung kamag anak nila didn't die in vain.
Pwede kasing nasa denial stage pa lang sila kaya hindi pa ganun ka tindi ang remorse sa nangyari.
I'm just intrigue by this, sa Pilipinas, pinapakita talaga yung pictures ng crime scene, how about dito sa Sandy Hook? No Blood at all pictures, o hindi ko lang nakita?
Yung sa virginia tech kasi, bloody talaga yung scenes.
also, yung nag survived na vice principal, bakit wala pang interview until now? Normally, diba dapat may coverage na yun, na she's doing well, etc. etc.
Saka, diba may nai-sugod pang mga bata sa hospital at doon namatay? Saang hospital dinala? Bakit walang media coverage doon sa hospital?
Again, I am not sure, kung hindi ko lang nakita, correct me if I'm wrong.
Nasanay lang siguro ako sa pilipinas setting, plus sa other shooting scenes, like the virginia tech, yung sa shooting sa isang island, ano bang bansa yun?
may mga bloody pictures lahat yun.
Dito sa Sandy Hook, nada.
Source: http://blogs.laweekly.com/informer/2...un_buyback.phpYesterday's LAPD gun buyback was so successful that two-hour waits and gift-card shortages were reported.
The department says it picked up 75 assault weapons as part of its no-questions-asked effort that saw $100 dollar cards handed out for handguns and long guns and $200 for the kind of rifle used in the Newtown tragedy. The LAPD says 901 handguns, 698 rifles, 363 shotguns will also be destroyed.
Good stats. But this is the one that gut us saying WTF:
Cops picked up two -- count 'em two -- rocket launchers (!) (and not one, as other outlets are reporting), an LAPD official with close knowledge of the program told us. Holy hell why do people on our streets have military grade rocket launchers?
The official told us this is not that unusual, that "we've had them in the past."
He says that police believe the "shoulder-fired" weapons are antiquated, decades-old, launchers from wars past often picked up by collectors or passed down to family members by veterans.
The official described them as LAW weapons, for light-anti-tank weapons.
They propel rocket grenades, but the official called them "non-working" because they did not have the "projectiles" with them. Thank God!?
Asked if they could arouse terror concerns among FBI and Homeland Security officials, the lawman told us that the LAPD had received no inquiries and that the department would, in any case, honor its no-questions-asked commitment to keep the donors anonymous.
Take that! We got two military grade rocket launchers! Oh, wait. No projectiles loaded. Good enough for eBay for those rabid "military" collectors (no different from those in Pinas wearing military uniform, sporting military haircuts, but not in any way IN the the military). Other than those LAW launchers, LA streets are practically packed with AK-47s, 74s, M4 Carbines, Israeli Uzi... ...well, just use your imagination.
As for the "mass shootings", ironically, there are still threads in PEX where folks inquire not only what's needed to get a US visa, they even share stories of how the interview went just to give an idea for those who will be eventually interviewed.
