    ‘May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face;
    the rains fall soft upon your fields
    and until we meet again,
    may God hold you in the palm of His hand.’

    "Four years before Adam Lanza massacred more than two dozen people in Newtown, Conn., in 2012, police officials were warned of his homicidal plans, according to documents released by the F.B.I. this week.

    In one entry dated Dec. 26, 2012, 12 days after the shooting, a man said he had been privy to a conversation in which Mr. Lanza said he had an assault weapon and was planning to kill children at Sandy Hook Elementary School and his mother."

    Lanza had created a meticulous spreadsheet of previous mass murders.

    The files reveal one woman, whose identity was redacted, had an "online relationship" with him for more than two years after meeting him through a website where players adopt the roles of the Columbine shooters, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold.

    She never knew Lanza's name or true identity, only speaking under usernames, but described him as "the weirdest person online" who spent almost all of his time researching and discussing mass murders.

    The woman said it was clear he was "depressed" and had a cynical and negative view of the world. She told authorities he had expressed some suicidal thoughts, but did not think he was capable of actually killing himself or others...

    The woman he spoke to regularly said Lanza had expressed some details about his sexuality, including a notion that he may have been asexual.

    She told investigators he had written "at least one lengthy email" to her expressing his views on paedophilia.

    In that he expressed his hatred towards it, but she said he had also described adult and child sexual relationships as "possibly beneficial to both parties".
    In 2014 the FBI concluded in a behavioural analysis report concluded there was "evidence to suggest the shooter had an interest in children that could be categorised as paedophilia". But they found no evidence that he had acted on any potential sexual feelings toward children...


    The online friend said he described feeling "pity" for children because he believed people in authority were "improperly controlling" them.

    She said that she suspected Lanza probably thought he was "saving" or "protecting" the children that he killed by "taking them away from harmful influences" including parents and teachers.

    Conspiracy theorist and former FAU professor James Tracy is set to go to court against FAU.

    In a case that could set a precedent related to free speech and tenure, a former Florida Atlantic University professor who claimed the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax will try to convince a jury he was fired because of his views.

    This article is similar to the one Raymonde posted.

    The things that stick out to me is Lanza's mentions of sexual orientation and the weird comment on adult-child relations. What I get out of that is maybe he was molested as a child and like the online friend of Lanza's said, she thinks, in his distorted view of the world, he may have thought he was saving the kids from a cruel world. I don't think his mental illness attributed to what happened as much as his social isolation did.

    The other thing was this,
    "A Newtown resident told the FBI that Nancy Lanza said Adam Lanza once hacked into a government computer system and federal authorities showed up at their door.

    Nancy Lanza told the person she had to convince the agents he was just very intelligent and was challenging himself to see if he could hack into a government system. She said agents told her if he was that smart he could get a job with their agency someday."

    I found that interesting. I wonder what government system he hacked into. And why the agents left without questioning him further.

    As a follow up...

    Professor who says Sandy Hook was a hoax sued the university that fired him. A jury ruled against him.

    On Monday, jurors in U.S. District Court in West Palm Beach unanimously rejected James Tracy’s claim that Florida Atlantic University officials violated his constitutional rights when they fired him.
