The Official Account of the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza, age 20, fatally shot twenty children and six adult staff members and wounded two at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the village of Sandy Hook in the town of Newtown, Connecticut. Before driving to the school, Lanza had shot and killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, at their Newtown home.After killing students and staff members, Lanza committed suicide by shooting himself in the head as first responders arrived.

The massacre was the second-deadliest school shooting in United States history, after the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre. It also was the second-deadliest mass murder at an American elementary school, after the 1927 Bath School bombings in Michigan.

Background

As of November 30, 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School had 456 children enrolled in kindergarten through fourth grade. According to school authorities, the school’s security protocol had recently been upgraded, requiring visitors to be individually admitted after visual and identification review by video monitor. The doors to the school were locked at 9:30 a.m. each day, after morning arrivals.

 Shootings

Some time before 9:30 a.m. EST on Friday, December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, age 52, at their Newtown home. Investigators later found her body, clad in pajamas, in her bed with four gunshot wounds to her head. Adam Lanza then drove to Sandy Hook.

At about 9:35 a.m., using his mother’s Bushmaster XM-15, Lanza shot his way through a locked glass door at the front of the school. He was wearing black clothing, earplugs and an olive green utility vest carrying magazines for the Bushmaster. Initial reports that he had been wearing body armor were incorrect.Some of those present heard initial shots on the school intercom system, which was being used for morning announcements.

Principal Dawn Hochsprung and school psychologist Mary Sherlach were meeting with other faculty members when they heard gunshots. Hochsprung and Sherlach immediately left the room, rushed to the source of the sounds, and encountered and confronted Lanza. He shot and killed both women.

Hochsprung may have turned on the school intercom to alert others in the building. A nine-year-old boy said he heard the shooter say: “Put your hands up!” and someone else say “Don’t shoot!”, people yelling and many gunshots over the intercom as he, his classmates, and teacher took refuge in a closet in the gymnasium. Diane Day, a school therapist who was at the faculty meeting, heard screaming, followed by more gunshots. Natalie Hammond, lead teacher in the meeting room, pressed her body against the door to keep it closed. Lanza shot Hammond through the door, in her leg and arm. She was later treated at Danbury Hospital. The police reported that a second adult was wounded in the attack, but that individual has not been identified.

In a first-grade classroom, Lauren Rousseau, a substitute teacher, was shot in the face and killed. Fifteen of the sixteen students in her class were killed; a six-year-old girl was the sole survivor. The girl’s family pastor said that she survived the mass shooting by playing dead and remaining still until the building grew quiet, and she felt it was safe to leave. She ran from the school, covered in blood, and was the first child to escape the building. When she reached her mother, she said, “Mommy, I’m okay, but all my friends are dead.” The child described the shooter as a very angry man.

The events in another first-grade classroom remain uncertain, with varying accounts attributed to the surviving children. Teacher Victoria Leigh Soto was reported to have attempted to hide several children in a closet and cupboards.As Lanza entered her classroom, Soto reportedly told him that the children were in the auditorium. Several of the children then came out of their hiding place and tried to run for safety and were shot dead. Soto put herself between her students and the shooter, who then fatally shot her.Six surviving children from Soto’s class crawled out of the cupboards after the shooting and fled the school. They and a school bus driver took refuge at a nearby home.As reported by his parents, a six-year-old boy in Soto’s class fled with a group of his classmates and the children escaped through the door when the gunman shot their teacher.

Anne Marie Murphy, a teacher’s aide who worked with special-needs students, shielded six-year-old Dylan Hockley with her body, trying to protect him from the bullets that killed them both. Paraprofessional Rachel D’Avino, who had been employed at the school working with a special-needs student for a little more than one week, also died trying to protect her students.

School nurse Sally Cox, 60, hid under a desk in her office and described the door opening and seeing Lanza’s boots and legs facing her desk from approximately 20 feet (6.1 m) away. He remained standing for a few seconds before turning around and leaving. She and school secretary Barbara Halstead then hid in a first-aid supply closet for up to four hours, after calling 911. Custodian Rick Thorne ran through hallways, alerting classrooms.

First grade teacher Kaitlin Roig, age 29, hid 14 students in a bathroom and barricaded the door, telling them to be completely quiet to remain safe. School library staff Yvonne Cech and Maryann Jacob first hid 18 children in a part of the library the school used for lockdown in practice drills, but on discovering that one of the doors would not lock, had the children crawl into a storage room as Cech barricaded the door with a filing cabinet.

Music teacher Maryrose Kristopik, 50, barricaded her fourth-graders in a tiny supply closet during the rampage. Lanza arrived moments later, pounding and yelling “Let me in”, while the students in Kristopik’s class quietly hid inside.

Two third graders, chosen as classroom helpers, were walking down the hallway to the office to deliver the morning attendance sheet as the shooting began. Teacher Abbey Clements pulled both children into her classroom, where they hid.

Laura Feinstein, a reading specialist at the school, gathered two students from outside her classroom and hid with them under desks after they heard gunshots. Feinstein called the school office and attempted to call 9-1-1 but was unable to connect because her cell phone did not have reception. She hid with the children for approximately 40 minutes, before law enforcement came to lead them out of the room.

Lanza stopped shooting between 9:46 a.m. and 9:49 a.m., after firing 50 to 100 rounds. He reloaded frequently during the shooting, sometimes firing only fifteen rounds from a thirty round magazine. He shot all of his victims multiple times, and at least one victim, six-year-old Noah Pozner, 11 times. He shot mostly in two first-grade classrooms near the entrance of the school, killing fourteen in one room and six in the other. The student victims were eight boys and twelve girls, between six and seven years of age, and the six adults were all women who worked at the school. Bullets were also found in at least three cars parked outside the school. After realizing that he had been spotted by a police officer who had entered the building, Lanza killed himself with a shot to the front of the head from a handgun.

First Response

Newtown police dispatch first requested officers on the scene at 9:35 a.m. Connecticut State Police received the first call at 9:41 a.m., and with Newtown police, quickly mobilized local police dog and police tactical units, a bomb squad, and a state police helicopter.

Police locked down the school and began evacuating the survivors room-by-room, escorting groups of students and adults away from the school. They swept the school for additional shooters at least four times. No shots were fired by the authorities. According to a transcript of police radio traffic, Adam Lanza shot himself dead within fifteen minutes of the first 911 call being received.

At approximately 10:00 a.m., Danbury Hospital scrambled extra medical personnel in expectation of having to treat numerous victims. Three wounded patients were evacuated to the hospital, where two children were later declared dead. The other was an unidentified adult.

The New York City medical examiner dispatched a portable morgue to assist the authorities. The victims’ bodies were removed from the school and formally identified during the night after the shooting. A state trooper was assigned to each victim’s family to protect their privacy and provide them with information.

 Investigation

A large quantity of unused ammunition was recovered at the school, along with three semi-automatic firearms found with Adam Lanza: a .223-caliber Bushmaster XM-15 rifle, a 10mm Glock 20 SF handgun and a 9mm SIG Sauer handgun. A shotgun was found in the car Lanza had driven to the school. At home, Lanza had access to three more firearms: a .45 Henry repeating rifle, a .30 Enfield rifle, and a .22 Marlin rifle.

The weapons were legally owned by Lanza’s mother, who was a gun enthusiast. Police said Lanza used the Bushmaster rifle against most of the victims. According to the state’s chief medical examiner, H. Wayne Carver, many of the victims were shot multiple times with the same “long weapon”—the Bushmaster rifle. Under Connecticut law, the 20-year-old Lanza was old enough to carry a long gun, but too young to legally own or carry handguns.

Investigators are not believed to have found a suicide note or any messages referring to the planning of the attack. Janet Robinson, superintendent of Newtown schools, said she had not found any connection between Lanza’s mother and the school, in contrast to initial media reports that stated Lanza’s mother had worked there. Lanza removed the hard drive from his computer and damaged it prior to the shooting, creating a challenge for investigators to recover data. Investigators have evaluated Lanza’s body, looking for evidence of drugs or medication through toxicology tests. Additionally, although unusual for an investigation of this type and unlikely to provide conclusive information, DNA testing of Lanza is being utilized.

Police also investigated whether Lanza was the person who had been in an altercation with four staff members at Sandy Hook School the day before the massacre. It was presumed that he killed two of the four staff members involved in the altercation (the principal and the psychologist) and wounded the third (the lead teacher) in the attack; the fourth staff member was not at the school that day. The state police stated that they did not know of any reports about any altercations at the school.

Police sources initially reported Adam Lanza’s sibling, Ryan Lanza, as the perpetrator. This was likely because the perpetrator was carrying his brother’s identification, Ryan told The Jersey Journal. Ryan Lanza voluntarily submitted to questioning by New Jersey police, Connecticut State Police, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Police said he was not considered a suspect, and he was not taken into custody. Ryan Lanza said he had not been in touch with his brother since 2010.Connecticut State Police indicated their concern about misinformation being posted on social media sites and threatened prosecution of anyone involved with such activities.

According to anonymous reports, authorities were investigating whether Lanza attempted to buy a rifle at a sporting goods store in Danbury, Connecticut, two days before the massacre. Anonymous sources claimed Lanza was turned down because he did not want to undergo a background check or abide by the state’s waiting period for gun sales.

ADAM LANZA-SANDY HOOK SCHOOL MASSACRE

Adam Lanza – 20

________________________________________

Adam Peter Lanza was born on April 22, 1992, in Exeter, New Hampshire. He and his mother lived in Sandy Hook, 5 miles (8 km) from the elementary school. He did not have a criminal record. He attended Sandy Hook Elementary School for a brief time. Afterward, he attended St. Rose of Lima Catholic School in Newtown, and then Newtown High School, where he was an honors student. Lanza subsequently was home schooled by his mother, and earned a GED. Lanza’s aunt said his mother removed him from the Newtown public school system because she was unhappy with the school district’s plans for her son. He attended Western Connecticut State University in 2008 and 2009.

Students and teachers who knew him in high school described Lanza as “intelligent, but nervous and fidgety”. He avoided attracting attention and was uncomfortable socializing. He is not known to have had any close friends in school.

Lanza’s brother told law enforcement that Adam was believed to have a personality disorder and was “somewhat austistic”. An anonymous law enforcement official and friends of Nancy Lanza reported that Adam had been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome. Due to concerns that published descriptions of Lanza’s autism could result in a backlash against others with the condition, autism advocates campaigned to clarify that autism is a brain-related developmental problem and not a mental illness. The predatory aggression demonstrated in the shooting is generally not seen in the autistic population.

Following her divorce from Adam’s father, a corporate executive, Nancy Lanza was supported by alimony payments. A relative commented that she did not have to work because the divorce settlement had left her “very well off”. There were conflicting reports on whether she had worked as a volunteer at the Sandy Hook Elementary School.

According to Nancy Lanza’s sister-in-law, she was a gun enthusiast and owned at least a dozen firearms. She often took her two sons to a local shooting range.

Reactions

The school was closed indefinitely following the shooting, partially because it remained a crime scene. Sandy Hook students returned to school on January 3, 2013 at Chalk Hill Middle School in nearby Monroe at the town’s invitation. Chalk Hill is a previously unused facility, refurbished after the shooting, with desks and equipment brought in from Sandy Hook Elementary. The Chalk Hill school has been temporarily renamed “Sandy Hook”. The University of Connecticut created a scholarship for the surviving children of the shootings.

In his speech at the December 16 vigil, Obama called for using “whatever power this office holds”, to prevent similar tragedies in the future. Within 15 hours of the massacre, 100,000 Americans signed a petition at the Obama administration’s We the People petitioning websitein support of a renewed national debate on gun control. President Obama later affirmed that he would make gun control a “central issue” at the start of his second term of office, in a speech on December 19. The President formed a Gun Violence Task Force to be led by Vice President Joe Biden to address the causes of gun violence in the United States. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Joe Lieberman called for an assault weapon ban, with Feinstein intending to introduce a ban bill on the first day of the new Congress, while former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot and injured in a 2011 shooting in Tucson has launched Americans for Responsible Solutions to raise money for further gun control efforts in light of the Sandy Hook shooting. Fear of future restrictions on firearms led to a spike in sales of guns, ammunition, and high-capacity magazines in the weeks following the massacre.

On December 21, the National Rifle Association of America called on the United States Congress to appropriate funds for the hiring of armed police officers in every American school to protect students. The NRA also announced the creation of a school protection program called the National School Shield Program, which would be led by former Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) administrator and United States Congressman Asa Hutchinson.

THE “TRACY TIMELINE”

The following timeline of the December 14 mass killing of 20 children and 8 adults in Newtown Connecticut attempts to demonstrate how the event was presented to the public by corporate news media. The chronological assemblage of coverage is not comprehensive of all reports published on the incident but rather seeks to verify how the storyline was to a substantial degree constructed by federal and to a lesser degree state law enforcement authorities and major media around the theory (prior to a complete and exhaustive police investigation) that 20-year-old Adam Lanza was the sole agent in the massacre.

From the outset, this scenario became an established reality through the news media’s pronounced repetition of the “lone gunman” narrative and meme. This proposed scenario significantly obscured the fact that police encountered and apprehended two additional shooting suspects on the school’s grounds within minutes of the crime. These suspects remain unaccounted for by authorities but the roles they may have played arguably correlate with the shifting information presented by authorities and major news media on injuries and weapons vis-à-vis the mass carnage meted out in the school. While the detainment of additional suspects was pointed to by alternative news media, in the days following the tragedy, the lone gunman narrative has become firmly established in the public psyche via an overwhelming chorus of corporate media reports and interpretations.

At the start of the 2012-13 academic year Sandy Hook Elementary School Principal Dawn Hochsprung announces in a public letter to families the Newtown School District’s new security system installed “in all elementary schools.” Under the newly-announced security regimen, “exterior doors will be locked during the day. Every visitor will be required to ring the doorbell at the front entrance and the office staff will use a visual monitoring system to allow entry. Visitors will still be required to report directly to the office and sign in. If our office staff does not recognize you, you will be required to show identification with a picture id. Please understand that with nearly 700 students and over 1,000 parents representing 500 SHS families, most parents will be asked to show identification.

CBS correspondent notes how police have a second shooting suspect in custody who they are interrogating. “Well, they have an individual in custody, who they’re talking to. I am told they’re looking into the person as possibly a second shooter. Now that changes the dynamics here a little bit which goes from—if in fact this turns out to be confirmed—it goes from a lone gunman scenario where somebody has this argument with society and wants to take revenge with the most defenseless people in society to a team of individuals who’ve gotten together and conspired to do something like this.” “School Shooting: Possible Second Gunman in Custody,” CBS News Online, December 14, 2012.

The Associated Press interviews an unidentified Sandy Hook Elementary student who describes seeing a shooting suspect prone on the ground in the school’s parking lot. Unidentified student: “And then the police like were knocking on the door, and they’re like, ‘We’re evacuating people! We’re evacuating people!’ So we ran out. There’s police about at every door. They’re leading us, ‘Down this way. Down this way. Quick! Quick! Come on!’ Then we ran down to the firehouse. There’s a man pinned down to the ground with handcuffs on. And we thought that was the victim [sic]. We really didn’t get a good glance at him because there was a car blocking it. Plus we were running really quick.” “Raw: Student Describes Scene at School Shooting,” Associated Press, December 14, 2012.

State Police Lt. J. Paul Advance on ABC’s Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos.

Vance: This is something that’s going to take a significant amount of time. From the onset we’ve had teams looking into the background of [Adam Lanza], peeling back the layers of the onion, so to speak. We have many, many questions that we need to ask—that we need to explore.
Stephanopoulos: Three guns found on site?
Vance: We haven’t discussed that as of yet, but, uh, in excess of three guns.
Stephanopoulos: More than three guns. And we know also that the guns match those of his mother may have had. Have you been able to put that together yet?”
Vance: We’re—we’re—I don’t have that information specifically–
Stephanopoulos: Do you know if they were obtained legally?
Vance: Again, that’s something we would also have to explore during the investigation.

MSNBC: “Connecticut Chief Medical Examiner H. Wayne Carver provides an update to the media after he and his team examined the victims’ bodies at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown following Friday’s shootings.” In this exchange Carver and State Police drastically change the story on what weapons were used in the shooting, contending that the Bushmaster 223 was the sole weapon Lanza wielded. Carver exhibits an amazing degree of deferral to law enforcement and overall lack of knowledge about the postmortem operation he has just presided over. For example, a reporter asks, “Were [the students] sitting at their desks or were they running away when this happened?” Carver responds, “I’ll let the guys who—the scene guys talk—address that issue. I, uh, obviously I was at the scene. Obviously I’m very experienced in that. But there are people who are, uh, the number one professionals in that. I’ll let them—let that [voice trails off].” Shortly thereafter another reporter asks, “How many boys and how many girls [were killed]?” Carver shakes his head slowly, “I don’t know.” “Medical Examiner: Rifle Primary Weapon Used in Shootings,” MSNBC, December 15, 2012.

Federal officials claim Lanza took three weapons to Sandy Hook Elementary, a Glock and Sig Sauer, and a Bushmaster .223-caliber semiautomatic assault-style rifle. Authorities remain unclear on whether all guns were used in the attack. Michael Isikoff and Hannah Rappleye, “Mom of Suspected Shooter-First to Die—Was Avid Gun Enthusiast, Friend Says,” NBC News, December 15, 2012.

Law enforcement officials state the murder weapon was one of three guns owned by Nancy Lanza: a semiautomatic rifle or two semiautomatic pistols. Josh Kovner and Edmund H. Mahoney, “Adam Lanza: A ‘Quiet, Odd’ Loner Living on the Fringes,” Hartford Courant, December 15, 2012.

Investigators believe Adam Lanza’s behavior was consistent with Asperger’s syndrome, a disorder within “the autism spectrum … marked by difficulty with social interaction. Many with Asperger’s are otherwise high-functioning people. There is no pre-disposition toward violence, experts said.” Josh Kovner and Edmund H. Mahoney, “Adam Lanza: A ‘Quiet, Odd’ Loner Living on the Fringes,” Hartford Courant, December 15, 2012.

11:44PM
Law enforcement authorities provide press with detailed information on event which becomes bedrock “official” storyline that Adam Lanza murdered 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School. After shooting his mother twice in the head while she lie in bed Lanza proceeded to Sandy Hook Elementary where he “fired a half-dozen thunderous rounds from a semiautomatic rifle to open a hole big enough to step through in one of the school’s glass doors.” He entered the school and shot Principal Hochsprung and school psychologist Mary Scherlach who after hearing the “sounds of gunfire and shattering glass, bolted into a corridor from a conference room across the hall from the classrooms … The first classroom Lanza reached was teacher Kaitlin Roig’s. Alarmed by the gunfire, Roig hid her students in a bathroom and closed her classroom door. Lanza passed by Roig’s classroom in lieu of substitute teacher Lauren Rousseau’s, shooting all 14 children who investigators believe were huddled and clutching one another in fear, in addition to Rousseau and a special education teacher who happened to be in the room. Lanza next arrived at teacher Victoria Soto’s classroom, who is believed to have hidden her 6- and 7-year old students in a closet. When Lanza demanded to know where the children were, Soto tried to divert him to the other end of the school by saying that her students were in the auditorium. As six of Soto’s students attempted to flee Lanza shot them, Soto and another teacher in the room. Searching for survivors police found the remaining seven of Soto’s students still hiding in the closet. They told the police what had happened. The two teacher’s aides who were killed were Mary Anne Murphy and Rachel Davino. It was unclear which aide was in which room when they were killed. The first officer arriving at the school found Lanza’s body near the door of Soto’s classroom. The intense violence lasted about 10 minutes. Lanza fired at least three, 30-round magazines with deadly accuracy. Two of the people he shot survived. All of the victims were shot multiple times. ‘I did seven (autopsies) myself with three to 11 wounds apiece,’ Chief State Medical Examiner Dr. H. Wayne Carver III said Saturday. ‘Only two were shot at close range. I believe everybody was hit (by bullets) more than once.’” Edward H. Mahoney and Dave Altimari, “A Methodical Massacre, Horror and Heroics,” Hartford Courant, December 15, 2012.

Since I’ve been president, this is the fourth time we have come together to comfort a grieving community torn apart by mass shootings, [the] fourth time we’ve hugged survivors, the fourth time we’ve consoled the families of victims … Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard? Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?” Daniela Altimari, “We Must Change, President Tells Nation,” Hartford Courant, December 16, 2012, 11:16PM EST.

Alex Israel was in the same class at Newtown High School with Adam Lanza, who lived a few houses down from her. “You could definitely tell he was a genius,” Israel says. “He was really quiet, he kept to himself.” Lanza’s former bus driver regarded Lanza as “’a nice kid, very polite’ like his brother.” Another former classmate remarked that Lanza “was just a kid” — not a troublemaker, not antisocial, not suggesting in any way that he could erupt like this.” Michael Martinez and David Ariosto, “Adam Lanza’s Family: Mom Liked Parlor Games, Guns; Dad, a Tax Exec, Remarried,” CNN.com, December 16, 2012.

Divorce records reveal the parents of Adam Lanza had joint custody of their son and that Lanza’s father paid yearly alimony totaling $240,000 in 2010, $265,000 in 2011 and $289,800 in 2012. Nancy and Peter Lanza’s divorce cited irreconcilable and was made final in September 2009. The divorce decree designated Adam Lanza’s primary residence with his mother in the Yogananda Street address which Peter Lanza quitclaimed to Nancy. Peter was designated as solely responsible for the cost of college for Adam and brother Ryan and for buying Adam a car. Nancy Lanza seldom discussed domestic affairs with friends.

  1. Hey, I’ve never heard that…

    No I’m talking about bamboo,
    it’s as invasive as hell, or it
    has always looked that way
    to me…

    We’ve got no shortage of either
    around my neck of the woods,
    I’ve been around both all my
    life. I’ve never had any bam-
    boo in my own yard though, or
    have ever tried to cultivate
    any. Just going by appearances…

  2. cmblake6 says:

    You thinking Kudzu? The way you plant Kudzu is to put a leaf on top of a rock and try to run away before it eats you.

  3. I actually knew that, thanks
    to you. But if it hadn’t have
    been for our conversations and
    some personal research effort,
    I never would have known… I
    had never heard of that, and I
    don’t think many other people
    have either Terry… all of
    this is so monumentally sup-
    pressed…
    _____________________________

    Yeah, but it looks like it’s
    dried up again: that went
    fast.

  4. Thanks for the feedback and
    encouragement…

    Ive never seen it shoot up like
    that as I’ve never tried to grow
    any.

    I have seen how it spreads out
    and eventually takes over the
    whole yard, though….

  5. I love that song as well…. and Joni is right, We DO love our freedom! She has been diagnosed with Morgellons and has put her career on hold to help sufferers… In my book you can’t top putting the concerns of others ahead of your own. I have become a big fan of Joni…. It makes me smile to see so many readers coming to your site.. I am very happy for you John.. Terry

  6. Hey Terry,

    Did you notice that Joni Mitchell
    music video I sneaked into that
    American flag bikini thing going
    on?

    I love that song…

    It’s at the top: the idea is you click
    on the vid then check out the pho-
    to array and it’s a multi…well, what
    do you call it? Mixed media? What-
    ever. But you get sight and sound
    and the song goes with it and it’s
    very uplifting IMOHO…

  7. cmblake6 says:

    I will keep coming back, John. We do what we do because it is our calling. You’ve got a talent for finding damned good stuff, it is your talent.

    As for numbers, I don’t necessarily have a very big following. I don’t have all that many subscribers. I don’t care as much about that as I do getting it into “the cloud”.

    I have a lot of hits come my way through search engines. I find a lot of “new” blogs that have been around for years through those same search engines. Or I click one of the ones I read normally and they’ve linked somebody I’ve never heard of, or someone from a blog I’ve never heard of clicks me and I go look at their place before I approve their comment. That sort of thing. That’s how my blogroll and resources grow.

    YOU, my friend, are a damned good blogger. Keep your stuff flowing, and you will grow. In the beginning I’d get less hits in 3 months than I do in an average day now. Stay strong, stay focused, get this stuff into the net.

    Yeah, it’s a hard sell. But have you ever seen how bamboo grows? Plant the seed and water it. For-freaking-ever. Suddenly bare ground turns into 20 foot tall stalks overnight.

  8. As long as we allow ourselves to be drug along
    by our noses at the MTV pace they have set for
    good reason — because it chills thorough and
    thoughtful inquiry and investigation into any one
    particular element as the big picture unfolds —
    we will be left sitting here like so many theatre
    goers, sitting anonymously and motionless,
    staring blankly at a screen filled with illusion.
    And after Aurora we know that’s a dangerous
    place to be.

    We need to make sure these crimes are proper-
    ly investigated and prosecuted, however things
    might pan out in the end. It is not only our
    inalienable right as sovereign citizens of a con-
    stitutional republic to ask tough questions, and
    demand truthful answers, it is our DUTY, as out-
    lined by the Founding Fathers and John F. Ken-
    nedy.

  9. cmblake6 says:

    Most welcome. We’ve got to expose this fraud, just as badly as the “election”. Smoke and mirrors, for the sake of photo-ops.

  10. As a matter of fact, I do…

    Thanks to you!

    GREAT find — thank you!

  11. […] Why is it that the question isn’t asked more loudly? […]

  12. bydesign001 says:

    Powerful words John and not a problem.

    ….most of the rest are just getting by… treading water at a meagre subsistance level….America: Land of the broke, home of the
    freaked…. the true wreckage remains concealed, and the slave is lulled into a
    false sense of complacency….

    Had a similar discussion with a neighbor. Actually, I suspect that she tuned me out after the first twenty words or so.

    We are all hurting and we are hurting bad. I don’t deny it which is why I blog. I apply myself in an attempt to open the eyes of those who are content existing in their state of slumber under the illusion of being free. I am sure you would agree that that’s a lot of blogging. Everyone is so freaking self-absorbed, mesmerized by false assurances that nothing bad could ever come of anything, especially in the United States. Amazing how with all the sirens going off and signals flashing everywhere that there remains so many who would prefer to remain in the dark. Just give them their 62 inch television, Xbox, Blackberry and they are lulled back to sleep. I must be missing something.

    In any event, before I complete my post, I’ll be sure to give credit where credit is due. Thanks for sharing John.

  13. The MAD Jewess says:

    Of course, John..

    I find it hard to believe that there are many
    ‘conservative’ people that actually believe this
    fake story is real.

    It baffles my poor brain.

  14. Hey MJ,

    Thanks!

    I can’t take any more credit than was due here
    though, this piece reflects more the work of
    others than myself, existing primarily as a
    simple compilation if anything… the efforts
    of several courageous and hard-working indivi-
    duals must be acknowledged: Professor James F.
    Tracy and Subliminal Proof, to name a couple
    but not intending to leave anyone out…

    John

  15. Hey Dee,

    I cannot take credit for that, that’s
    Professor James F. Tracy’s timeline.
    That’s why I put his name at the top
    and bottom of it and a link to his
    website.

    My holidays could have been worse: if
    at some point I’d fallen victim to a
    major coronary or a shotgun blast to
    the face at point blank range…

    They WILL be memorable: as the great-
    est nonevent of a lifetime, spent sick,
    broke, lonely and demoralized…

    I’m putting this out there in the
    public’s face so they will get the mes-
    sage that: Hell no, I didn’t have any
    wonderful, memorable holidays. The fact
    is, I didn’t have any holidays at all.

    Things could not be worse over here and
    I want the whole world to know it. Main-
    ly because the assorted reasons why ev-
    erything is so bad is everything I rail
    against on this website.

    We’re not over here jetsetting off on
    frequent $2 million dollar taxpayer-
    funded vacations to Tahiti or getting
    sucked-off by starry-eyed interns. It’s
    a daily fight for mere survival on a
    subsistance level over here,

    AND I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW IT!
    _____________________________________

    But mainly I want everyone to know it
    because one day out of the blue while
    right in the middle of whistling Dixie,
    I started thinking about how everybody
    always goes around saying, “Hey, how
    are you?” … “Fine, how are you?”

    Now how many times have you heard that,
    with minor variations that don’t change
    the theme one whit…

    Dee, this is an example of how we are
    controlled every day of our lives without
    even realizing there are external forces
    at work on us…

    Now… you may easily be flying in cir-
    cles far above my head. But truthfully,
    no one I know right now is doing “fine”.
    In fact, a whole lot of them are in deep
    shit and most of the rest are just get-
    ting by… treading water at a meagre
    subsistance level, locked away in their
    rooms lonely, depressed and isolated,
    possibly even ill and in despair…

    Because my eyes and ears are now wide
    open I see this taking place all around
    me every day, people losing their jobs,
    their homes, their health, and their re-
    lationships… so tell me, please, why
    all of these same “victims” go around
    reciting and repeating the same phrase
    by rote and by instinct like so many
    mindless parrots each and every time
    they are exposed to the stimulous:
    “Hey, how are you?”

    “Fine… how are you?”

    Chances are you are not fine, and if
    you’re not, then why are you lying?

    Well, on this particular day the “big
    picture” unfolded in my mind and it
    was revealed to me what a splendid
    social-control device this should be
    even if it isn’t in fact…

    That as long as everyone out on the
    streets only ever heard from each oth-
    er that things were “good, fine, okay”,
    or whatever when queried, then their
    conclusion would naturally be that
    things are in fact, “fine” or even
    just “good” or “okay”, which ain’t
    bad…

    So the true wreckage remains conceal-
    ed, and the slave is lulled into a
    false sense of complacency: no need
    to panic, riot, or even be concerned.
    Just remain in your homes, watch the
    insipid progamming we feed you on the
    TVs we sell you on the cable we now
    rape you for and keep your fucking
    mouth shut.

    “Everyone I ask says they’re okay…
    so everything must BE okay…”

    Everything is NOT okay! Get it?

    Sorry to bounce that off you, but you
    know how I am already and you were
    handy…

    Keep coming back…

    The best post on this whole acting scandal.
    Good work John.

    A belated Happy New Year to you John. Here’s hoping that your holidays were blessed as well as memorable for you and yours.

    Excellent post. These events I believe to be false flag events and indeed, we are being manipulated. You have put together one heck of a timeline drawing question to the events as they are reported to have unfolded.

    True that the elites are moving fast enough to make our heads spin but we must take the time to review everything as they unfolded.

    Great job piecing this case together. Will re-blog, patriot.

  18. […] John Dilligent at The Dirty Low Down Blog as done an excellent job summarizing timeline, facts and assertions in his post called SANDY HOOK: THE LATEST EVIDENCE.  See it here. […]

    Many of the images you show here John give the impression of a big production.. A theatre troupe performing their play for the cameras. In a few photos you see smiles and what are probably congratulatory looks and nods…

  20. Yes, you’re right Terry.

    Reblogged this on Cmblake6's Weblog and commented:

    John has put together some awesome evidence that the “Sandy Hook” shooting was a false flag. Even were there some children actually killed, this entire thing was set up for the purpose of shocking the people into begging Big Brother to save us from ourselves. His writing is spot on, and his videos are very revealing.

    This, all the ones before or at least most of them, and the ones to come either through government set ups or copycat crazies, are engineered for that very purpose. I wish to fuck I could trust my government, but there are too many questions, and too many answers if you pay attention for me to be able to do that.
