1. Wasn't there some kind of altercation between Lanza and the principal

the day before the shooting?

It was reported early on, but I haven't heard anything more about it.

13. Figures...the MSM should really feel ashamed by all its erroneous reports

But, since they have no conscience, I doubt they can feel that way.

3. There has been a LOT of misreporting

I read that too, and also that the shooter's mother was a teacher at the school and that his name was Ryan Lanza. Just saying I take nothing as fact until confirmed a number of times.

8. Another possibility is that...

 

his mind was controlled by aliens.

Perhaps we should wait until we actually know something before diagnosing this guy and his motives (or lack thereof).

9. I really have no idea.

They aren't done investigating, and there has been so much wrong information given out. I'm not going to speculate.

10. In the end, it doesn't matter.

Many many people are traumatized in childhood and do not go on to hurt others. We've been talking about the motives behind these shootings since Columbine. No two are quite the same.

I think most sensible people here know the best way to prevent mass shootings, but I'm not going to turn this thread into that.

I just think that, even if a motive is found, it won't ultimately be helpful.

11. Reports here in CT say that Lanza went to Newtown High School but NOT to SHES

I'm pretty sure it was Paul Vance who I heard say that. (State Police spokesman). Further found that his mother was never employed or engaged full-time, but may have been a part-time volunteer at some point in the last several years. It was not recent, however.

12. We don't need to wait for that investigation

 

Before we start addressing the real problem - insanely lax gun control in America.
