As reported earlier……
We’ve heard all day that the mother of shooter Adam Lanza was a substitute teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School. But it may not be true.
Josh Marshall at TPM reported:

There have been a lot of factual errors in the chaotic rush to get details about today’s shooting in Connecticut. But one fact that seemed established across the board was that victim Nancy Lanza, the mother of alleged shooter Adam Lanza, was a teacher at the Sandy Hook Elementary School — specifically that it was her class that Adam Lanza massacred.

But this story just out in the Journal suggests that’s not true.

Oddly, it’s buried down at the bottom of the story, almost as an afterthought …

A former school board official in Newtown called into question earlier reports that Nancy Lanza had been connected to Sandy Hook Elementary School, possibly as part of the teaching staff.

“No one has heard of her,” said Lillian Bittman, who served on the local school board until 2011. “Teachers don’t know her.”

It’s mentioned so offhandedly. And this apparent fact was so widely reported that I’m still wondering if I’m misreading these two grafs.

    Fox news interviewed somebody earlier this evening who said the same thing. That she was not heard of and they checked and her name was not listed on the substitute list. I cannot remember which Fox ‘show’ it was reported on.

    It was not a ‘report’, it was an interview.

    This is what makes conspiracy theories so believable. A cop pulls you over for speeding, he looks you up , and the cop immediately knows everything there is to know about you down to how many times you use the bathroom every day…

    but slaughter 28 people and 12 hours later nothing but shady shadowy intel. …Maybe the mother is a COP…She had quite a stash of cop grade issue weapons in her home…This is Jarred Loughner all over again…Remember how we got NOTHING on his parents…never saw them or heard from them…to this very day …completely INVISIBLE unknown people….because they were on the government payroll.

    And this is why the networks must tread very carefully and must wait for all investigations to be fulfilled completely.

    Sounding like a Benghazi to me.

    I’m speechless at the outrage at the shooting, when so many in our country voted for a killer who executes little children in the thousands using his gun-by-proxy, the Predator drone. New York University recently participated in a study on President Obama’s illegal program to execute enemies using drones and found that in the past several years, the number of innocent women and children exterminated through the drone strikes numbers in the thousands.

    Barack Obama has killed hundreds of times more children than any deranged psycho. Barack Obama does not have any constitutional authority to commit these extra-legal strikes (and some in the global community are noticing). Yet 52% of American citizens voted to give the gun back to the killer for another four years of children killing.

    Conclusion? Liberal Americans only care about white, U.S. children. The brown children of the global south can die. They don’t even merit a back-page headline in the New York Times.

    I heard she was a teacher’s assistant. Not a teacher, thus the confusion

    Some truly insane comments have been noted herein! Clearly we must all have to tread as if stepping on pins and needles, if these are the folks alongside us eating, drinking, going to the movies, to school or just down the street!

    The residents said that this school’s education was great. A quite place to live.

    I’ve been so disappointed by the media coverage of this event. The entire day there were several occurrences of bad information. From getting the brothers mixed up, to reporting the father was found dead in a home to the mother ‘nancy’ being found dead in the school with the others and then subsequently found dead in another home. The father being brought in for questioning and the brother being ‘in custody’. Most of the reporting done today was not based on anything confirmed by the police. Once we heard the actual press conference only 1/3 of what was ‘reported’ was accurate. I agree with Patty – please News teams, report what’s confirmed.

    @ Multitude… WTF are you blabbing about. What is this blog about politics or the masacre in Ct.

    Here is a picture of the mob of media rubberneckers swarming over Newton….>

    and with all these 100s of highly paid educated people… the best the media can do is find some 5 year old boy who rode the bus to tell us what little he knows…

    and what a grotesque apologist for the fasci state Mr SNOB elitist at # 8…What ONLY THE SELECT ELECT are allowed to know the facts of a case when an entire community suffers a massacre ? ….Because if people are told truthful information about the killers it might reflect poorly on people who work for government and damage the cause for your scheduled 5% annual pay raise ?

  • Betsy Young

    Multitude is EXACTLY RIGHT. Hypocrites!

    Let me be clear, my gun free zones work! All schools should be gun free!

    There were over 700 people in that school who played by the “no-gun” rules. Only one person did not.

    Judging by the number of people killed or injured we can expect the same results with more of my gun free zones!

    My pig of a limo is spewing smoke and David Axelrod and a new scam to shake down gun owners. It’s a variation of Bait and Switch scam. I cannot go into details. My last scam failed. Good day

    More Info here on Lanza:

    “Kind Of Strange”

    Adam Lanza was a 2010 graduate of Newtown High School. Andrew Lapple, who sat next to Lanza in homeroom, described him as a skinny, reserved kid “who never really talked at all.”

    Lapple said he played Little League baseball with Lanza and remembers he wasn’t very good. Instead, Lanza was more of a “tech-geek,” he said.

    “He was always carrying around his laptop holding onto it real tight,” Lapple said. “He walked down the halls against the wall almost like he was afraid of people. He was definitely kind of strange but you’d never think he’d do something like this.”

    One former classmate of Adam Lanza remembered him as quiet.

    Kateleen Soy, now an undergraduate at Hofstra University in New York, said she was in Lanza’s seventh-grade class at St. Rose of Lima School in Newtown.

    She recalled that he joined the class after the school year began and left before school got out for the summer.

    “He was really shy, really painfully shy,” Soy said.”He was a little hard to talk to.”

    After he left St. Rose, she didn’t recall seeing him again until she spotted him in a hall while they were students at Newtown High School.

    “I wanted people to know he wasn’t always a monster,” Soy said. “He became one, but he wasn’t always that way.”

    Police have given no indication of what Lanza’s motive may have been and it is not clear what his connection was to the elementary school. There have been reports that Nancy Lanza worked at the school, but that has not been confirmed.,0,5043872.story?page=3&track=rss
