Newtown Shooter Identified As [Unclear First Name] Lanza From New Jersey

Tyler Durden's picture


Update 3: Final sequence of events: as we expected, cops confuse name, CNN reports it, and media goes wild. From the AP: "Adam Lanza's older brother, Ryan, 24, of Hoboken, N.J., is being questioned by police, said the first official. Earlier, a law enforcement official mistakenly transposed the brothers' first names."

Update 2: the reason for the confusion is that the first name reported today by CNN and promptly carried by the rest of the media, Ryan Lanza, may be incorrect, and should likely be Adam Lanza. At this point until the police correctly identify the suspect it is probably best to ignore all further updates from CNN or otherwise on the matter.

Update: there is confusion as to whether this is indeed the correct Lanza or not. As The Inquisitor reports:

A screenshot circulating on Twitter purports to have recent updates from Lanza denying a connection to the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting:


* * *

The shooter has been idenitifed by CNN as one Ryan Lanza, 24, out of New Jersey. A quick Facebook scan has identified one Mr. Ryan Lanza in the 18-24 year old age group, out of Hoboken, NJ who lists Newtown, CT as his home city. There is one unconfirmed account of a suspect born in Newtown, CT and currently living in Hoboken, NJ, although it appears it is not the suspect in question. The mother of the suspect was a teacher at the Sandy Hook school, and she is among the dead.

Boy, if I was some sinister organization with the goal of disarming the American people the only way I can think of to do that is to turn public opinion against guns, and one way I might be able to do that is to brainwash people into going crazy and shooting a lot of people in public.

Hypothetically, of course.

@ flacon,

Call me crazy, call me a conspiracy theorist, I really don’t care. It seems to me that this is another ploy to get guns out of the hands of the nations citizenry so the government can control us easily. If anyone genuinely thinks that there is no chance in hell The American government is even remotely involved in the sudden outburst of public shootings all over the country, you need to open your eyes and realize the government is NOT your friend. The Government is NOT here to protect you. The Government is NOT controlled by “elected officials” with “what’s best for the people” in mind. The Government IS, however, controlled by money, banks, and selfish, power-hungry businessmen looking to own and control the world, for their OWN personal needs. It is time to stand up and say “No more!” This country is long overdue for a major revolution and the sooner it happens, the better.

@ trav777,

If this doesn’t seem suspicious to folks then I am sorry. We get one of the greatest rulings in US history concerning the right to bear arms, and within a week this happens! I’m sorry, but there is no way that is a coincidence. Look how many of these mass shootings we have had under the Obama administration; Have you forgotton "Fast & Furious?"  It seems a little strange to say the least!

Here is a list of mass shootings from this year ALONE!:

April 2 – A gunman kills seven people and wounds three in a shooting rampage at a Christian college in Oakland.

July 20 – A masked gunman kills 12 people and wounds 58 when he opens fire on moviegoers at a showing of the Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, a suburb of Denver, Colorado.

August 5 – A gunman kills six people during Sunday services at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, before he is shot dead by a police officer.

August 24 – Two people are killed and eight wounded in a shooting outside the landmark Empire State Building in New York City at the height of the tourist season.

September 27 – A disgruntled former employee kills five people and takes his own life in a shooting rampage at a Minneapolis sign company from which he had been fired.

October 21 – Three people are killed in a Milwaukee area spa including the estranged wife of the suspected gunman, who then killed himself.

December 14 – A shooter opens fire at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, killing several people including children. (Yahoo!News)

They keep losing in the courts, so they are doing everything they can to win in Congress.

I am deeply saddened by this and I can’t imagine what those that lost their children are feeling.

@ catacl1sm,

A sad day in Connecticut indeed..No matter how you look at it, the world is getting worse anyways with violence.  Remember guns don’t kill people, people kill people.  Although this sadness has occurred and people died, if we outlaw guns, the only ones with guns are going to be the outlaws and, The Criminal Federal Goverment Globalist Minions.  Today the shooters were the outlaws.

Correct Chupa. These weapons didn't just discharge all by themselves. They were used by a brain that has been coddled and desensitized by a liberal society that has lost it's soul.

I fear people blaming the government for all the world's problems almost as much as people relying on the government to be their saviors.  Talk about lack of personal responsibility.

  It's certainly more comfortable to believe the average person isn't capable of extreme evil, but sadly, people are.  It's a shame we aren't able to believe that our children, who we raised and cared for and loved, could shoot a school full of kids, and that disbelief will allow more incidents to happen in the future.

Sorry, not my kids. My kids have never nor will they ever play a violent video game. They respect human life and it's divine origin. They have been saved by Jesus and have love in their hearts. They know compassion, empathy and control. My kids have been raised to respect weapons and know their proper handling. We talk to each other when we are troubled, we comfort and counsel each other. May God bless the families of the victims.

I suspect we'll never know, for certain, but the brain bank will probably provide an incredible amount of clues.  My guess is that it's a combination of trauma (probably in formative years), re-enforced abuse, and drug use (most likely prescribed...  probably for mental condition)...  in addition to being genetically predisposed...  and, often times, having external support for the plans (e.g. an accomplice, internet forums, friends, acquaintances, etc.) or a complete lack of response to countless cries for help.  It's a recipe we'll likely never find out, but I think we know and/or can surmise as to most of the ingredients.

+1 truth

Fri, 12/14/2012 - 16:24 | 3064121 trav777

true on a variety of counts.

Our filth culture has actually elevated infamy and notoriety above real fame.

Look at the a bygone era, they'd have been SHAMED.  But now, nothing is shameful.  Oh we can't hurt the feelings of the people who do stupid crap and behave like savages.  Back in the day, you'd get laid out.

Now it turns into a "white guy shoots unarmed BLACK (did we tell you he was black?) teen" of course because the teen wouldn't turn down his "rap music" (aka WHITEY BEEZ RAYCISS).

Nevermind that the act of driving into a gas station with your radio blaring and the awful lyrics that are featured in rap these days SHOULD warrant a "kid, turn that down."  But, oh noze, you might offend them because you're not sensitive to their culture.  You say somethin they explain precisely how they are going to violently assault you, peppered with a few racial epithets...oops, dude had a gun and just flat out didn't want to SUFFER the indignity of disrespect anymore- he snapped.

You can't shame a slut for being a ho.  Can't shame Paris Hilton for...ok, I am being redundant here.

People are snapping under this pressure and the ersatz reputation that comes with snapping makes it an ATTRACTIVE option.  In fact, notoriety is actually being cited as a PRIMARY motive for a lot of these nutballs.

There is no civility in our culture anymore, no norms, no morals,'s a wasteland.  And this type of crap is what it produces.

A kid dressed as the joker shoots up a cinema for gun banning.  Nothing happens.  No gun control.  Well we need a bigger mass murder.   They did it in the UK in Scotland.  Did it in Australia in Tasmania.   Guns then get banned.  In those cases it was the murder of children too. 

Yeah.  Stuff just happens like that. Sure.

God is all that matters, actually. The only thing that matters is going to Heaven and being reunited with our Father in Heaven. It's no coincidence that these things are happening more frequently. Moral bankruptcy in addition to financial bankruptcy. The public schools are evil places. Pure secularism/state is god/anti-Jesus Christ/anti family values hellhole. 


This is probably the biggest problem is that TPTB have young children, the future, in their environs of statist Luciferian propaganda. It's sometimes subtle, as they might say they are 'neutral' when it comes to religion, but look closely and you can see that they want to get rid of God and move onto their NWO. I don't care how 'good' the students do/get good SAT scores, etc. For what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?


Kids are aimless these days and turn to anything to get a boost, be it drugs, alcohol, cutting themselves, and then they give these kids psychotropics and new age shrink BS when the only Counselor we need is Christ. Man does sin. Psychology rationalizes and doesn't acknowledge that mankind is depraved. None of us are above what this young man did today. We all have that evil in us from the flesh, and only by Christ's grace are we able to fight the good fight and trust in Him.
