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.

Tylers fingered some black guy standing in front of a PNC Bank as a "hobo" with an iphone.

Seeing a trend here?

Seeing lawsuits here?

Put this fucking sick retard inside of a "brazen bull" and then set the fire... This should deter any other sick individual from doing anything similar.

Shameful. 

"reported today by CNN and promptly carried by the rest of the media"  

You are COMPLICIT.  

Pasted that shit all up.

Judging by the "tweets" you posted, that poor Ryan kid was already fucked up. If it wasn't him, you are COMPLICIT.

Lawsuits aside, you sleep with that. 

Sad fucking day all around.

There sure are a lot of gov shills on forums ramping up the "kill this guy" "ban guns now" rhetoric.

Truly sad... How have I become so jaded? The first thing I thought was here comes the assault on gun owners... Peace.

You and millions of others. Fool me once...

The shooter is the pawn in this game of taking over America...the globalist fukks targeting babies to further their agendas.

...my heart goes out to the families.

Check Beck's site (theBlaze.com) - MSDNC is already all over this angle, hoping this will provide "political capital" to reform gun laws.

Ghoulish. Seriously.

Ookspay's picture

They are ghouls. And opportunists of the worst kind; remember Happyland in NYC, 89 dead from a single gallon of gasoline.  22 killed in China today, with a knife. Evil exists, always has, so we fight on.

Dealer's picture

If he would have pulled this act on the trading floor of GS or JPM, dude would have gone from a relative nobody to an American Hero.  But unarmed kids?  What a pathetic piece of shit.

cougar_w's picture

Shut it.

This shit is fucked up everywhere.

You start saying "it's okay where there is evil IMO" then everyone has an idea where there is evil and you just gave them permission to unwind their little corner of Hell.

Just shut it until you have a rational solution.

Dealer's picture

To defeat the monster, you must become the monster.  Is that rational enough for you?

cougar_w's picture

No it's some scary psychotic mental disease.

Seek help.

It's called the "Look at me syndrome." Rings in the nose, redneck stunts, scorecards on Wall St.

A Lunatic's picture

It's worse than that. This is about making others as sad, miserable, lonely, and broken as the shooter himself. It is ultimately about control and having the last and final word............

trav777's picture

true on a variety of counts.

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

Look at the Kartrashians....in 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, nothing...it's a wasteland.  And this type of crap is what it produces.

lakecity55's picture

It's bad, but do not discount the "Big Media" is pushing all this stuff. Some people fall for it, but I think most people are not crazy.  Big Media wants to corrupt us all. Do not let them!

El Viejo's picture

It's always been easier to do something rotten and destructive than something positive and good.
