As more information develops, we learn that Sandy Hook mass murderer Adam Lanza, 20, ‘deeply disturbed kid’ whose mother was divorced and living on a $235,000 a year settlement from her banker husband. This put her, after divorce, firmly in the top 2% of the nation. Her children had the best care, a huge, very expensive home and the best schooling on earth. No one was deprived of anything. And it also turns out, mom collected firearms and had a good number of ammo available, too.
It also turns out, due to her high income from the ex-husband, she didn’t work in the school or anywhere. The kid who killed her and then went on a rampage didn’t simply snap. This was planned. Exactly like the young man in Norway who looked for neo-Nazi excuses for mass murder, and he killed dozens more than Adam, he planned out his rampage and deliberately picked the most peaceful place possible to have the greatest effect.
To find, buy and then arrange to wear a bullet proof vest, black clothing and a mask takes planning. And it also requires a model, this isn’t the typical deranged soldier going postal, this is an untrained young man who…trained himself very well indeed since his shoot/kill rate was very high. He worked at this, relentlessly, probably for several years.
Video training is quite common. It is used to train the reflexes. Driving trucks in snow or flying planes or whatever, using reflex/reaction training via videos works. And training murderers works great this same way. Practicing shooting to kill is training the reflexes so they respond automatically and there is no thinking involved. Recent police shoot-outs have the same effect: bullets flying everywhere as they unload as fast as possible.
Street shootings are increasingly like this, too. The handguns that act like street sprayers are quite popular in the gang culture, for example. Adam belonged to no gang, he was a classic psychopathic isolated, antisocial killer. Look at the Glock ad above: ‘It seems everyone has a story about their Glock’ is darkly amusing. The title of the opening page for these guns is also darkly horrible: ‘Confidence to live your life.’
The vast majority using this sort of handgun is to fend of armed robbers who also have these guns or to take revenge or to fix business deals gone bad like the recent assassination of a rich young man whose mom is a banker in LA while he was visiting Manhattan, an assassin jumped out of a car and executed him due to a bad drug deal money laundering mess.
I have done more than a dozen citizen’s arrests, ran street patrols and taken down armed criminals including three times, men shooting guns. Not once did I use a gun. I used a trash can once, a broom, a paint brush (yes, with red paint on it! I told the man, it was a knife with blood and he nearly fainted!). A harmonica in one case, a screwdriver. Never, a gun. Most people, in a crime situation, are so fearful, they can’t handle a gun in the first place.
Then we have the police: they get in trouble because they end up shooting their family members over trivial matters. Or football players who, after cheating on their fiancees, go off and murder them and then commit suicide. There are many ways to go insane and taking a pile of ammo and guns and then dressing up like a video game assassin is to be deplored.
Except…the USA is the Assassination Nation. I harp on this dangerous situation because it is bad for us here and far from making our Homeland Secure, it makes it very hazardous for us all. Now, the debate is going to resume, what are we going to do? We can’t blame these murders on being poor, rich children can grow up to be hideous criminals just like poor kids! We can point to Congress. Last time I was there, I saw cops all over the place. It was total lockdown, you had a through search before going into the hollow Hallowed Halls.
In today’s Halloween world, Congress and the Pentagon are fully protected while we run around screaming while mindless, pathological assassins seek to see if they can best each other’s kill numbers. The Columbine mass murder is not even half the size of this week’s edition.
Go to Google to buy your own CHEAPER THAN DIRT Glock handgun with a laser so you can nail your assassination victims more accurately! Dude! Way to go. Responsible gun owners have an obligation to assist us all in doing something about this. First step I would suggest for the Assassination Nation is to stop that! No more glorification of assassinations. No more celebrating the murder of entire families of people we have political reasons to say, arrest. Some of Bin Laden’s family was butchered when he was gunned down by assassins, for example.
This addiction to assassination is backfiring and it is time to renounce it. We did this with the Church Commission and Jimmy Carter, just this week, begged us to stop the assassinations. We must listen to him! Please. Then, there is this news this week: Suicide numbers likely to top 2011, Army says – Army News | News from Afghanistan & Iraq – Army Times. 17 killed themselves last month. 165 did this last year. These are the official numbers but the actual count is probably higher. Over 300 killed themselves this year and the year isn’t done yet. This is so sad, so predictable and so stupid. The Pentagon has sat on top of suicidal soldiers for years. Many drink themselves to death, for example, and thus, are not counted.
The mental health of Americans is deteriorating. And we can’t stop it by some easy trick because it is fundamental. The cost of glory, the painful price of empire is unhinging us. As we party harder and harder and listen to rockstar heroes wail, we wave our arms and dance around while blood flows in the streets, both in the ghettoes and in the homes and schools of the uppermost income families. A reminder of this is the billionaire founder of Norton antivirus corporation: wanted for shooting his neighbors over the issue of his barking dogs! Good lord!
