yeah - Now they’re saying Ryan had nothing to do with it, that Adam was the lone shooter and was autistic with a personality disorder

pretty shitty press corps if you ask me - at least name the right guy
Of course the media posted the Facebook profile of the 24 year old brother as the shooter

Reporters and producers around the country, frantically searching for information online about the alleged school shooter and found what seemed like a match. Ryan Lanza, 24, was believed responsible for the deaths of 27 people in Newtown, Conn., at the Sandy Hook elementary school.

The Facebook profile showed a Ryan Lanza from Newtown, Conn., who currently lives in Hoboken, N.J., and is a male who looks like he’s in his 20s. It fits the police description, so countless news orgs ran with it in stories and tweets.

Problem is, it seems to be the wrong guy.

Fischer: God Didn't Stop CT School Shooting Because He's a 'Gentleman' Who Doesn't Go Where He Is Not Wanted

Bryan Fischer spent the first hour of his radio program today discussing this morning's truly horrific shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut, which he, of course, blamed on the fact that prayer, the Bible, and the Ten Commandments are not taught in public schools.

Fischer said that God could have protected the victims of this massacre, but didn't because "God is not going to go where he is not wanted" and so if school administrators really want to protect students, they will start every school day with prayer:

The story makes me ill. My eyes watered up watching some of the scenes unfold earlier today. It's a sickening story. One can't even fathom how even the most mentally deranged in society could inflict that sort of horror on little children. I don't think many people would have flinched were he taken alive and sentenced to death by burning.

But with that said, and prayers and condolences offered to the families and the communities, the true way to start preventing this from happening in the future is in rebuilding our families, rebuilding our communities, and rebuilding our societies. It isn't in sweeping gun control laws that trash our 2nd amendment and make victims and prey of law abiding citizens all across the country.

I blame the media, honestly. I was a teenager in the 90's and our parents had no idea just how destructive the music and the youth culture that arose from it and much of our `entertainment` created. But we were also alive in the 80's and so we could understand when we aged and got a little wiser that it was a fad and not a way to actually live or conduct ourselves. It was just a teenage fashion.

People ten years younger than I, I feel, have no such perspective. They've been born into a wildly degenerate society and that is all they know. Vile music, degenerates praised as "artists" and `entertainment` that is trashy and culturally worthless at best and destructive to society at worst.

I don't think it is a coincidence that so many of these maniacs were born after 1990.

Everyone is to blame. We have turned a blind eye to the direction the media-barons have been leading this nation and pretended our children will be forever isolated by it, even if they have responsible parents, or won't be affected by it.

And now we're soon going to have a conversation thrusted on us about fire-arms where Americans will be expected to give up more liberty in the name of security and real problems of our society will continue on as usual.

You obviously were not around for the 1960s - Google Charles Whitman - this shit has been going on as long as I can remember, although mass murders of elementary school kids is a new twist

what pisses me off is whenever stuff like this happens the shooter always kills himself when the cops show up. death is too good for scumbags like that, he should spend a year getting gang raped in a federal fuck me in the ass prison and eventually getting bludgeoned to death by other degenerates like himself

This.

I'd be personally fine with this guy getting crucified above a pile of tires that were then set ablaze. Totally evil. He isn't even a human being. He's like some sort of creature.

Couldn't say it any better myself. As you took the words out of my mouth!

Thoughts and prayers are with those that lost loved ones and victims. So sad! :(

What makes people do this to their fellow man?

Prayers and healing to the families and staff of Sandy Hook Elementary School.

In the area where I live, parents and teachers are being asked to consider having their children and students write letters of comfort and support to the children at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

I have an eight-year-old and a four-year-old, and I couldn't help crying and hugging them all day yesterday. So sad. I read that there was only one casualty. All of the rest dead. How sick is that? One survivor. Maybe.
