Why the Creepy Little Weirdo Did It

Posted on | December 18, 2012 | 27 Comments

We now have the first clear suggestion of a motive:

NEWTOWN, Conn. –  The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped  because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility . . .
[The creepy little weirdo], targeted Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown after killing  his mother early Friday because he believed she loved the school “more than she  loved him,” said Joshua Flashman, 25 . . .
“From what I’ve been told, [the creepy little weirdo] was aware of her petitioning the court for  conservatorship and (her) plans to have him committed,” Flashman told “[The creepy little weirdo] was apparently very upset about this. He thought she just  wanted to send him away. From what I understand, he was really, really angry. I  think this could have been it, what set him off.”
A senior law enforcement official involved in the investigation confirmed  that [the creepy little weirdo’s] anger at his mother over plans for “his future mental health treatment” is being looked at as a possible motive for the deadly shooting.

News organizations keep trying to bestow post-massacre fame on the creepy little weirdo. I’ve decided to stop cooperating with that agenda.

    Considering how wrong the media got everything else initially I take this with a big grain of salt too.

    Okay, I hate to go here because I am not a blame type person, but here it is. If indeed this is true and he knew his mother was going to get him committed (which she would have had to tell him because of his age) why would she have not immediately disposed of the guns? Hid them, got them out of the home, or gave them for someone she trusted for safe keeping?

    For whatever reason, there was no indication of impending violence.

    Good. These Assholes always want infamy. The want to be monsters. They should be demeaned at every opportunity. I say institute an Outhouse Policy. Any shithead who pulls a mass killing gets an outhouse for a grave site.

    I know..and I kind of feel wrong for suggesting even remotely it was her fault.

    I wish all media outlets would adopt this standard…The McCain Standard! If it stops one solipsistic creepy little wierdo, it would be more than worth the effort. As for the “people’s right to know,” I’d rather never know the names of these creepy little wierdos. What good comes of it?

    Big surprise.

    So the broken government mental health system will still be irreparable, and thanks to Obameecare it will cost Americans about half their paychecks.

    Expect these types of slaughters daily soon.

    Not sure Flashman is passing on anything more than conjecture- his pastor father is saying the info did not come from him… that would be breach of pastoral confidence. Still reserving opinion on the motivations.

    I understand your sentiment though Sheryl. I don’t consider it an implication that it was her fault, but it sure would have been nice if things had been handled differently. With someone with that many issues, who had already started harming himself (burning himself with a lighter), it’s not far fetched to think that he could eventually move on to harming others. Precautions should always be taken when mental illness is a factor.

    I’m sure you’ll get attacked for this Stacy but I commend your willingness to be forthright. Too often we see incidents of copycat homicides because some lost soul wants to be famous, even in death. Sensationalizing things like this help nothing. I saw a great article regarding that very topic and Jared Loughner, but can’t seem to find it again now.

    One of the leftists’ favorite tricks is to point out how freaking brilliant they are, because they (unlike those knuckle-dragging misanthropes on the right), have the marvelous ability to hold two, dare I say “conflicting,” ideas in their mind.

    At the same time!

    (I know! I was just blown away, too!)

    Well, I wonder if they can hold these two in those capacious caverns of cerebration:

    A) Yes, we can feel sorry for, and show compassion to someone who is genuinely mentally ill.
    B) Yes, we can recognize that the guy was nuckin’ futz, and needed to be institutionalized for his, and the childrens’ own good. And that it’s okay to point out he was one lane short of a bowling alley; ratiocinatin’ beyond Minkowski spacetime; drycleaning without chemicals; vacuuming without a hose; playing tiddlywinks without an iddly…
