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.

"also, about 22 children stabbed at a primary school in china this morning as well."

I sure hope there are calls to ban all sharp implements from public consumption in China, regardless of permits and background checks. I mean, this behavior just simply can not stand.

This is not the time for twisted politics.

Tell that to the assholes who are about to try to repeal the 2nd amendment. I don't want any politics in this. The bastards that support the guy in the White House are going to be on this like stink on shit.

cougar_w's picture

I totally agree. This is not the time for that either.

But the poison is everywhere now, everyone is going to play the game now, every angle and every leverage for every reason they can come up with, and all about personal gain.

For politics.

While we kill our own children.

For politics.

CBS News is reporting his mother was a teacher at the school. He killed her too.

Time to ban Facebook and Twitter.  

Drilling platforms just blowup.  Shuts down the gulf drilling.  

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: Ryan, as you have meted out to the innocents, it will be meted out to you in spades. Take him away to the everlasting fire.

Lanza: But I was deprived as a child and the world abused me.

God: Eternity is a long time, Ryan. Take him away from me to the deepest, hottest level of hell.

What, is ZH now a Sunday School? What the flaming fuck does GOD have to do with any of this?

Leave God out of it. Leave religion out of it. We are sick and disturbed and there is not enough God or religion in all the sacred places of the world to save us now.

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.

I knew getting rid of the captcha was a bad idea...

The darkness comes out of the shadows, on days like this. Not much captcha can do about it.

I think I'll go home early.

God i can just imagine how bad things will be when the SHTF...A classroom full of little kids excited about Christmas, and then this. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected by the acts of a COWARD in Newton, Conn. Can't begin to express how disgusted I am by this...

as the US economy continues to implode, and the big cities on the coast devolve into anarchy and cannibalism, stories like this will cease to even make the local news.

Fact.

Wake up people. The American dream is over. It's just one screaming bloody American nightmare from here forward.

I cannot help but wonder if the "end of the world 12/21/2012" is playing a part in pushing the borderline suicidal/insane over the edge.

I'm guessing this is either over a child or a broad (or both).

Sad.

I dunno - was he involved in researching bizarre states of mind and altered reality?  On some dubious psych meds?  Was his shrink afraid of him?

@Ryan_Lanza Dec 3 "i would actually love if the world ended in 2 weeks..#fucklife"

Since 12/21 was 3 weeks from that date, and 2 weeks is close to today, looks like the planning stages were occuring here.
