FR EXCLUSIVE: Vid-cams caught Lanza at Newtown High on 12-14-12
Vanity ^ | February 17th, 2013 | DTogo

Posted on 02/17/2013 8:20:17 PM PST by DTogo

Heard it second hand through the Newtown grapevine this weekend that there is surveillance camera footage on Dec 14, 2012 likely showing Adam Lanza pulling into Newtown High School before heading to Sandy Hook Elementary. Evidently there was some sort of drug-related police presence at the high school that morning, more than the daily single squad car out front, that may have deterred him to a softer target.

The linked story from January 3rd is about similar reports soon after the shooting, which police denied.

Sources are in local occupations that would know of the existence of such video footage, have no reason to fabricate this, and did not specify if Lanza exited his car towards NHS or just kept driving.


TOPICS: US: Connecticut; Your Opinion/Questions
KEYWORDS: banglist; gunfreezones; lanza; newtown; sandyhook
If true, and several other parents here with kids at NHS have no reason to believe it's not, this validates Wayne LaPierre's point that school security is a deterrant, and "gun free zones" are a magnet to gun-toting psychopaths.

But despite the official report on Sandy Hook not due until this summer, political focus remains on banning certain types of guns and accessories while school security here in Newtown has only slightly improved, if at all.

So, there is a Newtown High drug dealer to blame for the massacre?

I’m not being serious.

If this turns out to be bogus I will certainly ask the Mods for a retraction, but I and others here have no reason to believe it is, and I’ll try to dig deeper.

The single best way to respond to a mass shooter is with an immediate, violent response.

it bursts their fantasy world bubble.
Then they kill themselves or surrender.

Avoided the school where there WERE guns, instead going to a GUN FREE SCHOOL.

How interesting.

And how interesting that this HUGE news was totally concealed from us.

How interesting also that after pilots GOT GUNS there have been NO hijack attempts.

HOW VERY INTERESTING.

If true, this needs to get to the blogs. From there Drudge. From there to the New Media. From there, the MSM will look like the boot-licking fools they are.

If it’s true then that footage has probably been deleted by now.

Same thing as with someone trying to steal, rape, etc. bunch of cowards when they are confronted!

Had some big dude approach me from behind one night when I was locking up our business. It startled me and I turned around and yelled at him because it really *issed me off and he took off. Could have ended a lot different had I acted afraid of him or actually had any common sense to be afraid!

As in: Monica Lewinski.

As in: Space Shuttle explosion.

As in: Algore’s phone calls coordination with media.

Yep, this has potential.

Okay, I get your drift.
He met potential resistance at the HS so he proceeded to the softer Elementary School.

It sounds feasible.

If it pans out, correct the title and send it to Wayne LaPierre.
That would be the kind of news the NYT doesn’t deem fit to print.

Pure speculation on my part, but it seems more likely for a kid of his age, nuts or not, to maybe want to wreak havoc at the high school where he no doubt had some unhappy connections than the elementary school. Especially after you discount the BS story about his mother having been a teacher there, etc. Makes sense that it might have been his #2 choice of targets.

Waiting for the usual Liberal Media Worshipers to come on here and sling the “you don’t believe Sandy Hook happened” meme every time something related to Sandy Hook does not jibe with the Liberal Media Spin....no matter how many times the Liberal Media Spin is changed

Interesting about the HS video. That should be released to the public. If not, you know something is up

So...Lanza originally set out to shoot up the local high school, but was deterred by armed security of some type there at said facility.

So, rather than launching a risky, dangerous attack on the high school, he seeks out Target "B": an elementary school with no such security, filled with helpless, unarmed children.

(Slaps forehead in amazement, thinking like an inane LSM drone) Who on earth could have imagined he might do that? It's almost as if he didn't want to confront any armed resistance. Who could have possibly seen that coming?























































Certain portions of the above are pure-D sarcasm. In lieu of the usual "sarcasm" tag, I leave it to the reader to determine which part fits that description.

Yep, imagine that! He first headed to the high school, the very same high school where he endured a lot of grief.

Apparently, just horrid bad luck for the Sandy Hook children that police activity outside the high school, made him change his plans. Nothing like GUN FREE SCHOOL ZONES filled with helpless little children.

Looking at Lanza, one has to conclude he is directly related to John Kerry.

If this is true, this is pretty big and pretty telling. It really gives insight to the mindset of a mass murderer.

With that being said, I would like to see video or official reports before telling people about this.

And no, if it’s never “produced”, it doesn’t mean it’s “deleted”.

I found a story that at least shows the rumor has been mentioned in the media. Perhaps you’ve seen this already.

Sounds very logical to me and if true the gun grabbers wouldn’t want it publicized.

WHY in the world is that "official" report taking so long??

Danbury State's Attorney Stephen Sedensky was able to convince a judge to seal all documents related to the incident, including everything about Lanza's mental health history... Sedensky, who lives in Newtown by the way, said it may be several months until police finish their probe.

This has also been reported elsewhere.

Proves Lanza wasn't nuts, but a cold, calculating, premeditated murderer.
