    I think we will hear more from the father as time goes by. The mother was probably always in denial abt the shooters mental health, but I bet Dad knows the details.

    Unfortunately, I think that no matter how many preventative and protective measures are taken in our day to day lives, these incidents will investable happen. It's not a pretty fact of life, but it doesn't make it any less true.
    Whilst being on Websleuths makes me more aware of what evil there is in the world, it also reminds me that the best people are among us as well.

    Love you all!

I'd rather wait for Law Enforcement to give more details than hear children, who have not had time to even comprehend the magnitude of what has happened today, recount what they heard or seen today.

    40 parents (counting mother's and father's) have lost children today. 6 adults were killed. The children who were there today should not be dealing with the media! I'm pissed at the parents right now! MOO
    I think everyone would be in a daze, a state of shock and not thinking properly....lets give them a break please!!!!

    What about just keeping classroom doors closed and locked all day? I don't know. I'm at a loss. I'm getting ready to graduate with my degree in Elementary Education and I just cannot imagine the horror and panic that the teachers felt and are continuing to feel.

    What about when subs are in the building? They aren't given keys to lock doors and the only classroom doors I'm familiar with require keys to both lock or unlock.

    This school apparently had a big glass window near the locked door. :shaking my head:

    So if the perp`s mother is not connected to the school then he randomly chose to kill as many schoolchildren as he could just because? sigh.

    My parents did this not because they are evil people--they are not--but because they truly believed in that day and time that those were appropriate ways to discipline a child.

    Based on my own experience I would never advocate spanking a child. Ever.

    Is it appropriate to hit a spouse when they do something they shouldn't? A friend? A parent?

    If not, why is it okay and even desirable to hit a child?
    Izzy ::hugs:: I am right there with you. I was spanked, slapped, often times got my rear "whooped". It never made me behave. It made me sneaky. It made me resent my mother. My dad never laid a hand on me, and I have a somewhat healthy relationship with him. I cannot even be in the same room with my mother for extended periods of time. We don't talk on the phone or anything.

    I vowed to be like my father and never lay a hand on my children. I am a firm believer that it truly is not necessary to raise well-adjusted adults.

    It's truly terrible for all involved. Only one person is responsible for this. If he wanted out of this world he should have took his life and left everyone else alone. He was selfish cold and caculating. Everyone involved has my deepest sympathy.
    I am still holding out on this, why would a mother have a semi automatic? I'm not sure if this is "quick" reporting or what but I just don't understand why this mother would have all of these guns. IMO

    I hope that tomorrow if the killer had an obsession or frequent delusion that it will be revealed by the dad or brother.

    Nancy Lanza was a part-time substitute at the school, according to a parent.
    That could explain some of the confusion about her connection to the school.

    a woman who worked at the school was wounded.
    This woman may be the vice principal we read about earlier.

    I'm not sure if she had purchased the guns or not they have said the mother had the guns registered to her. I don't know if it is factual reporting that they were her guns. I just feel she is a victim also. Edit to say also sometimes people leave items behind to family members, broken marriages, alot of ways she could have ended up with the guns being hers if she didn't infact buy them.
