Detectives investigating Newtown massacre
find Adam Lanza´s violent video games, ponder
the 20-year-old mimicking a gory game scene

New York Daily News, by Adan Edeknab

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/18/2013 7:14:28 AM

Connecticut police found thousands of dollars worth of violent video games in the home of Adam Lanza, who mercilessly gunned down 20 children and six teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December. During a search of the Newtown home he shared with his mother, Nancy Lanza, who also died Dec. 10 at the hands of her son, authorities discovered what appeared to be dozens, if not hundreds, of graphically violent games, the Hartford Courant reported.

The video games may have been a small part of it but I think his mom pushing him to go back to school is really what made him snap.He was an extreme social phobic.They just called it social shyness but I think it went well beyond that.There´s plenty of people who never leave the house because of this phobia.

I´m sure the video games were found long before obama made his guest appearance in Newtown. It wouldn´t have been convenient to disclose this information then, or while the anti-gunners and candy-asses like Bloomberg, Cuomo and Rahmbo are wettting themselves over magazine capacity. I can hear liberal pukes shrilly asking: So what does this matter now?

It´s time for some serious game control. No one NEEDS that many games.

One aspect seems to ask the chicken vs egg question. Do these games produce this type of personality, or is this type of personality attracted to this type of game? Or maybe each feeds the other, neither being totally responsible? Kids, boys predominately, typically exhibited aggressive behavior long before video games. They would stage wrecks with their toy cars, complete with vocally produced sound effects. Build huge structures with wooden blocks just to intentionally cause them to topple. Over speed their toy trains to run them off the track. Always trying to make the next incident bigger and better. The vast majority grow out of this phase and progress to normal adulthood. A small minority do not. Video games are probably part of the equation, but I doubt that they are solely responsible. The wiring in a person´s brain, I suspect, is the prime reason.

"But police may never know the full extent of Lanza’s obsession with violent video games, as he destroyed the hard drive on his computer."

Unless the disk was thoroughly destroyed -- virtually unless it was ground down into powder -- the data stored there could be recovered through advanced forensic analysis. Unless he used bona fide strong encryption on that drive, authorities can reconstruct its contents.

I am shocked! Do you mean to say that a child with his own high tech video room in the cellar with 7.1 surround, a 100 inch lcd tv, and a dedicated gaming computer, and who was allowed to spend all his waking hours bombarding himself with larger than life gaming images of blowing up other humans, actually desensitized to the point where he could shoot up a kindergarten? Lets spend a couple hundred million studying this breakthrough in science!

Untold millions of kids, and some adults, play those video games. My younger son did for a long time. How many went nuts and killed a bunch of school children? So far one.

I agree with most that the violent games should be stopped. I see no ´fun´ in shooting people then stealing their car.(I think the name is Grand Theft Auto) However, it is what it is and pretty much everyone can separate gaming from reality.

I blame George Lucas. The whole thing reminded me of the scene in Star Wars 3, Revenge of the Sith, where Anakin (Darth Vader) kills the children in the Jedi Temple.

The movie came out 7 years ago, Lanza probably gobbled it up at that age.

I´m still stuck on the statement of the friend of Lanza´s mother who said Adam was a vegan because he didn´t want to hurt animals. I have nothing against vegans but note how little has been made of this sign of a liberal mindset. Had the story been that Lanza was a churchgoer or a fan of the Bible, it would have been made almost as central to the story as guns.

Where would a kid growing up in a peaceful rural Connecticut town learn about and become desensitized to such extreme violence that he played out in that Connecticut school, if it were not for him constantly viewing and playing multimedia productions such as violent movies and video games?

In this particular case add in that his mother was a strange duck, a middle aged female with a number of apparently unsecured high powered firearms and ammunition in the home. On top of that she knew that her son was unstable and was probably scared of him. With a little forethought she could have easily secured those firearms in a gun safe that she would have had no problem affording, thus saving a lot of lives including her own.

1. Why did Adam stop talking to his father two years ago?
2. Nancy Lanza spent a lot of time traveling and eating out - who was her boyfriend?

Not that either of these things would explain what Lanza did - but these are two huge unanswered questions.

It would be useful to know at what age Lanza began playing violent video games, because that is the sort of activity over which parents have ultimate control, especially with a child who has mental health issues.

I think that the prescription drugs this person took could have more to do with this incident than we are being told. It has been kept quite hush-hush, but most of the mass shooters in the last several years have been on, or recently stopped taking these anti-depressant drugs. Nobody wants to discuss it in the msm because their agenda is to ban guns.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
