Nancy Lanza – Mother to Adam Lanza – Is Key to THIS Violence

Of course I have the luxury of sitting on my couch, being an arm-chair profiler as this horror in Newtown, CT plays out. But I’ve gone through more than a half a box of kleenex, watching the coverage on MSNBC. This makes eleven senseless mass shootings in 2012. Two of those mass shootings where in my hometown: the Sikh Temple shooting in Oak Creek and the Azana Spa shooting in Brookfield.

I’m relying on the profiling classes I’ve taken (not criminal profiling, just human profiling) and this is why I’m offering you this theory.

1) His mother was his first victim and killing her was very personal; 2) He shot her in the face, point-blank and she was so badly disfigured, the authorities had to make positive identification some other way; 3) Adam tried to buy a rifle, but was refused, so instead, he went after his mother’s guns and she was passionate about guns. She took both her kids to gun ranges and her passion rubbed off on, if not both of her sons, at least on Adam. She probably taught Adam all about guns and probably taught him how to shoot and care for weapons. In the end, it was her downfall. 4) She had issues with the school district, her sister-in-law said and even home schooled Adam; 5) Out of the 26 victims, only 8 of them were male. All of the adult victims were female. 6) I believe the authorities have Ryan Lanza cloistered somewhere and are using the interviews to build a psychological profile of Adam; 7) We have not heard anything about the father of Adam Lanza; 8) I’m not sure why he would be caring his brother’s ID on him except that he was offering a clue as to who knew him and the reasons behind what he was about to do.

Now here are some facts about mass shootings: 

According to the Citizens Crime Commission of New York City “mass shootings are a unique feature of American life” and the increased lethality of the incidents are made possible “by the use of large capacity ammunition magazines … which enable a shooter to rapidly fire off as many as 100-rounds without having to reload…”

What irritated me was within minutes on Friday, someone had created a Facebook page under Ryan Lanza‘s name, associated an incorrect picture with it and people had already started to praise him or call him a coward. Facebook will not take this page down and will not use its powerful software tools to block it or stop it. If telephone companies can monitor a phone number and make a “challenge” when someone continues to misdial it, then Facebook should be able to rise above their billions in stock earnings and become a good citizen and start taking down tasteless pages made for mass murders, stop child pornographers from finding victims and keep people from using breasts of 14 years old girls as their profile picture.

Amanda Todd Suicide: Police Will Investigate: Larry Fedoruk Blog

News Talk 610 CKTB :: Amanda Todd Suicide: Police Will Investigate – Larry Fedoruk :: Larry Fedoruk Blog.

This isn’t about a quality baby boomer TV show. But it is about a topic that’s near and dear to my heart and that’s BULLYING.

I opened my weekend Seek or Shout email this morning and on a page with only two entries I found this link from Larry Fedoruk’s blog about Amanda Todd. I really like Larry Fedoruk’s blog. He blogs about relevant issues not just fluff.

I almost always write about fluff, but not this time. I hate bullies and after I watched Amanda Todd’s silent video where she was holding up pieces of paper that was the narration behind years of her pain I decided that I wouldn’t write about fluff today.

UPDATE: I asked for permission to be a member of a “group” on Amanda Todd’s R.I.P. Facebook page and it’s a mixed emotion. First, I’m getting a lot of emails to my personal email account. Second, I found some awful things people have written on her R.I.P. page, things that Amanda’s parents will see and it just breaks my heart.

It makes me upset that Facebook can’t do a better job of monitoring those pages. I even tried to report this person and when I did I found pages and pages of instructions from Facebook, but didn’t find a link or email address or any way to actually “report” this person. I’m inserting the item, but I’m warning you, it will piss you off and considering Facebook makes it impossible to report it and does nothing to stop it will piss you off even more.

Someone thought it would be cute to make a bleach ad featuring Amanda Todd’s likeness.

‘Friday Night Lights’ Creator Accuses Mitt Romney of Plagiarism in Threatening Letter – Hollywood Reporter

‘Friday Night Lights’ Creator Accuses Mitt Romney of Plagiarism in Threatening Letter – Hollywood Reporter.

I really don’t enjoy “pressing” articles from other news sources, but I find that The Hollywood Reporter is far less “sensational” as some. I came across this particular article when I was on imdb.com this afternoon (Friday, Oct. 12).

I find in interesting that Mitt Romney has again found himself with his foot in his mouth once again.

It’s an interesting read.
