Sandy Hook shooting. What kind of sick fuck shoots elementary school kids?
sounds like this is gonna be worse than Columbine.
This makes me fucking sick. If you are so miserable in your life go off yourself, but for fucks sake don't take people, especially little kids, with you.
From the ABC article:
Really? A fucking confrontation with the principal leads to you killing a dozen people?The shooter, who police say is likely a parent of a student who may have had a confrontation with the principal, is said to be among the fatalities.
I am working right now less than 10 minutes from the school. I can tell you that the mood of everyone I've encountered so far is very somber. And this story is going to get a lot worse before the end.
People with mental issues do sick stuff. Try and act surprised
I wish they could have saved the killers life so the parents of those he murdered would slowly torture him to death. Fuck that guy, holy shit.
Thoughts and prayers are with the families.
The AP just tweeted that 27 are dead and 18 of those are children
Wow. I hope the reported numbers are higher than the truth of it. Terrible either way.
Yeah I'm really hoping those numbers are going to go down.
That's completely fucked up.
MSNBC says 26 dead, 18 children and 8 adults. Sad day. Gun violence, how do you address it?
This is unbelievable. Can you imagine the level of terror that every parent of a student at that school is feeling right now? You think it's safe to send your kids to school, and then shit like this happens. Unreal.
I don't care much if you're the praying type, pray for, or at least send some positive mental energy to, the families that lost children today.
The Human species proving once again it's the worst species on the planet.
This is sick.
Are we going to have to start having armed police at schools at all times? Arm certain teachers , principal , school nurse??? Dont know how we can even stop things like this.
Shooter 24yrs old, four weapons and bullet proof vest.
There is no preventing situations like this from happening in the near or even distant future, sadly. Any measures taken to prevent it will really just hurt the innocents more.
Terribly sad story
What the fuck?? I really do hope the numbers are off.
So he goes in with a bullet proof vest. Is the shooter expecting to come out of this alive?
Even ff he was caught alive, someone would empty a mag into his face.
What a fucking disgusting situation. When I saw this on the news in the morning before work they were saying only a couple of kids got injured. By the time I get to work, 18 kids dead?! Makes me sick.
There is another person in custody at the moment and one shooter dead apparently.
how bout you guys shut the fuck up about the pro-gun/anti-gun shit for just a while?
First time I can remember crying since childhood. I don't want to hear any more. Celexa withdrawal fucking with my emotions + this is just too much.

As a father of a 2yr old it's shit like this why I am so over-protective.
I fucking hate people. This pisses me off so much. Fuck..
This tweet hurts my heart
9 y/o girl says that "police with big guns" led her classmates out of the building. Asked them to cover their eyes.
Flipped on CNN to see them interviewing a 9 year old asking how scared she felt while a rampaging maniac was raging through her school. Stay Classy, CNN.
The more I think about this, the more awful it is. Literally just cried at work thinking about the murdered kids and their Xmas lists etc. I remember what its like being a kid at Christmas, and some morbid fuckhead ruins it for an inumerable amount of people. The secretary probably thinks I've lost my fucking mind walking in on the boss teary eyed.This one is harder for me to swallow than the others for some reason..... Bright eyed little kids.....
No words. There are some seriously disturbed individuals in our society and I don't have a clue as to how you combat that.
Prayers to all the families involved.
Now maybe we still won't agree on what guns to ban but we can all agree that the socio-economic factors need fixing so why the hell can't we get that done?
Anyway how the hell do you make it to 24/yr old without be diagnosed as insane before you off children? Can this person really be normal until he snaps?
Watching the livestream is making me sick to my stomach.
Wearing bullproof vests = Premeditated? Pretty disturbing. My heart goes out to those kids and their families. Such a tragedy.
I want to just curl up and have this be over... Fucking humanity, where did we go wrong?
Man, this is horrible no matter where it happens, but living in the same state where it happens is sobering. Most people at work are very subdued, and I haven't even bothered to check FB yet as I'm sure it's several pages of this story by now.
Sigh. I work at an elementary school, I'm on my fucking lunch break right now watching a livestream. This is just pathetic, I don't know how to finish this fucking day now.
No parent deserves to bury their child. Right before Christmas and New Years. I can't imagine being one of these parents, I'd lose my senses. I feel so sorry for these people.
If you arm teachers then at some point you will get a horrible incident where a teacher shoots children. Also, teachers cannot walk around a schools with guns all of the time, and all it would take is someone forgetting to lock the gun cabinet properly and then you have children with guns in school. The only way I can see it being okay to have guns on a school site is if those guns are carried by full time, well trained police officers. You could alter the layout of schools to make them more prison like, and only allow staff (not parents) into the area that the children are in.
This whole incident is sickening. I do not understand the kind of crazy that can make a person want to kill 5 year olds.
The first question isn't going to be about the gun but about the security of the school. How did the shooter gain access, etc. This may lead to all schools have locked front door policy, needing to get buzzed in for admittance. Similar to how a lot of day cares work.
what a horrible day.. 26 dead so close to home, which really puts this into perspective:
"July 22, 2011: Confessed mass killer Anders Behring Breivik kills 77 in Norway in twin attacks: a bombing in downtown Oslo and a shooting massacre at a youth camp outside the capital. The self-styled anti-Muslim militant admitted both attacks"
I'm fucking pissed about this. But can you guys keep the politics out of this shit for at least 24 hours?
"I'm afraid of children my own age. They kill each other. Did it always used to be that way? My uncle says no. Six of my friends have been shot in the last year alone. Ten of them died in car wrecks. I'm afraid of them and they don't like me because I'm afraid. My uncle says his grandfather remembered when children didn't kill each other. But that was a long time ago when they had things different."
Pretty speechless about this, but agree with Tuco - I was about to say that. Sad sad day for everyone
This is why we need better mental health programs and more funding for social work. They are the only people, after the person's family, who can possibly prevent situations escalating into something like this.
man i jus saw this, people are fucked up, i just see this getting worse and worse further into december we get and crazies get all uppity.
To paraphrase Trey Parker: Either you can talk about everything or you can talk about nothing.
Checked the stream to the anchor saying "piles of children in the room" and closed it instantly. Not a lot of things bother me, but god damn.
Why would you even say that. Way to have a fucking heart, you cunt
I don't have human feelings so I can't accommodate you very well Tuco.
So I guess the 24 year old with the vest,guns is a apprehended suspect and the shooter is a 20yr old from NJ or has NJ license plates and has ties to the school.
BBC news is still saying that one class is unaccounted for. Any info on this from american sources?

We're all pissed about this
Anyone up for at the very least closing the loophole that allows people to buy guns at gun shows without a background check?
This is about way more than firearm politics.
I haven't felt this shaken up about something since 9/11.
Paul Adams BBC News, Washington
For some time, the apparent lack of panic outside the school led networks to report that the death toll was low, including the gunman and members of staff. But over the past hour, an altogether more horrific picture has emerged. With the police still sweeping the school, there are reports that an entire class, possibly a kindergarten, remains unaccounted for.
This world we live in has always been a fucked up place.
We just now know about it in 3 seconds vs maybe never ever hearing about things or days after it happens.
EDIT: They did report that they have a locked door report to the office policy at this school. Also just heard that there was a connection to the shooter and the school.
