Exclusive: Newtown shooter
Adam Lanza taunted and beaten
by fellow students when he
attended Sandy Hook Elementary
School, relative reveals

New York Daily News, by Matthew Lysiak & Larry Mcshane

Newtown killer Adam Lanza’s mother considered suing Sandy Hook Elementary School after teachers turned a blind eye to beatings from his classmates, a family member claims. The relative, speaking to the Daily News, claimed that mass murderer Lanza was taunted and attacked by fellow students at his childhood alma mater. “Nancy felt fiercely protective of him,” the relative said. “She was convinced the school wasn’t doing enough to protect Adam. It made her irate.” Nancy Lanza — gunned down by her 20-year-son to start his Dec. 14 rampage — even tagged along with Adam to school

Too bad he took his frustrations out on innocent children. His mom got the death penalty for not keeping her guns from her troubledkid. Thanks, bullies and taunters out there, for the incalculable harm you cause.

There have always been bullies in society, & there always will be. Society really suffers when the bullies gain "respect" & get power to push their agenda, much as it is now. Most of our leaders were probably bullies as kids, or were the bullied kids. Either way they are in positions to "fix" it now & we all pay the price for disallowing the natural progressive to growing up.

Guns may have been the final answer for Adam Lanza but bullies and school administrators who did nothing were the real culprits.
Will the -gun do gooders now address the real problems?

"A family member claims"

This is enough to run with the story? Apparently so if it conforms to the standard "anti-bullying" narrative.

Sorry, but I do not believe this narrative we have been spoon fed by a media that refuses to cover the Gosnell trial. WE really have no idea how Lanza got the firearms he used, hell, we really don´t even have an accurate and consistent accounting of WHAT he used in terms of firearms. We have no idea what really happened as far as Nancy Lanza´s murder, (has it been proven Adam killed her? Or are we just assuming that, since he´s dead?)

Way too many holes and unanswered questons, or questions answered with pat answers because no one will ask about other possibilites.

I´m not goign to blindly accept the narrative.

On occasion, the person who believes that he is being bullied is misinterpreting the comments from someone else.
And some bullies are simply not intelligent enough to understand that their comments are a form of bullying.
But most interesting to me is that I have seen bullies all the way up through doctoral level students.

Many times, bullies are shielded by special education laws, being classified as victims of oppositional/defiant syndrome. We used to call them criminals who preyed on the weak.

The day of/after the shootings there were multiple stories stating Lanza had been at the school the day before and gotten into a "confrontation" with several teachers/admins, one of whom was out sick the next day and should be able to describe what THAT was all about. Has anyone ever heard a follow-up?

Bullying would not cause a SANE person to shoot children.
This case has as little to do with bullying as it does with control.

And everyone of you posters MAY have children that torment and bully a kid who has the misfortune of being visually impaired and mainstreamed as mine was.
Maybe your kid was the one who put his foot in front of my child so that he would trip and fall and then laugh at him.
Was it your child who knocked his pencil off his desk every day and laugh as he struggled to find it on the floor? Was it your kid who put his coat at the end of the row so he couldn´t find it? Hid his lunch?
If you think your kid isn´t teasing and tormenting others in school, you are part of the problem.
It has been reported that his mother had a gun safe. I bet she had the key to it around her neck or had other safeguards.
Had this kid gone next door and stolen his neighbor´s guns would it be the neighbor´s fault?
Adam Lanza was mentally unbalanced. Out of a population of more than 300 million people, there are many more walking the streets right now, some may be your relatives.
The mother was searching for a facility for her son. He went over the edge before she found that place.
I would use this as a learning experience, not to excuse Adam Lanza, BUT to be aware that schools DO fail kids with special needs, and some teachers resent having a handicapped kid in their class and turn a blind eye when other kids bully him. Let´s look for options and solutions and quit blaming the mother.

When bullying happens, most parents will send their child for martial arts training. In Newtown there are many martial art type classes for children, teens, adults. We have no gun shops, no gun practice ranges. Further the Newtown schools, public and private, have a strong anti bullying policy and prevention program. When my son got bullied in 4th grade, they all do, I told him to punch the bully in the nose. My wife had more sense and talked to the teachers and principal. Then we enrolled him in ´karate´ classes.

Some reeds bend with the wind, and others are broken in the face of adversity.

And I am sure that Nancy Lanza, more than anybody, was aware of her son´s personality flaws, and believed she was doing what was possible under the laws of Connecticut, to control and contain her increasingly out-of-control son.

Adam Lanza SHOULD have been committed and under observation, but alas, the rules have changed, presumedly to watch out for the rights of those who are of uncertain mental stability. Once past the age of 18, he was considered a full and functioning adult, unless proven otherwise, but neither Nancy Lanza nor the State of Connecticut ever had the opportunity to act upon that incontrovertible finding.

My daughter was a bullying victim and I tried to bring it to the attention of the school admin. with no luck. It is time to realize that this can lead to mental anguish and damage for years to come. She is 22 now and still has self esteem problems.

I am in no way excusing Adam Lanza for his acts but there may be another Adam Lanza waiting in the wings who is a bullying victim.

It would have been better to reveal this information back when this happen. It´s no secret that bullied kids can kill (themselves and others). This feeble attempt to sanitize him is a major fail. He is dead and gone thankfully robbing the media of the circus in their continued indictment of gun legal owners. Now if we could figure out of way of detecting and doing something about the criminally insane before they strike.

The article is not trying to excuse any of the hateful acts that were committed. But it shows how even the simplest acts of cruelty and hate that people commit every day to one another have an impact over time. This is the essence of the law of Karma, the law of moral cause and effect. This has nothing to do with gun laws or government, this is about human nature. The lesson to everyone is to recognize and prevent the small daily acts of cruelty in their own lives and those of their children before they result in far greater suffering.

As you would in the insurance biz, you can begin to apportion responsibility for the Sandy Hook massacre. IMO, at this point, 51 percent to the shooter, 29 to the mother and 20 percent to the bullies. But one salient point about the bullies... They are the ´´but for´´ in this tragedy. BUT FOR the bullies and the beatings, I do not think Sandy Hook would have happened.

Imagine being one of those bullies, those beaters, those taunters who knew very well what they had done. Imagine being them as the news broke that terrible afternoon last December.

There are quite a few right posts on this thread, but #29 is the rightest so far. I´ll not belabor things with my repeat stories of being targeted mecilessly as a kid, but rest assured it does leave very deep wounds that do not go away. Most of us learn to deal with it and move on to enjoy the blessings of life. Some do not.
Deliberate cruelty is not funny. It is the behavior of a coward.

1) In light of Gosnell what part of the media story should I believe.
2) Bullying is no more rampant today than in the past. It is the homosexual lobby that tries to convince us that it is rampant.
3) The killer might have been bullied at school. I was too, but as yet I have not murdered younger students at same school.

#15, I understand what you are saying. Worse than the child bullies is the fact that many teachers either turn a blind eye when it goes on in their classroom, or sometimes subtly encourage it by picking on and/or ridiculing a child. Many parents have similar stories, as several here also have mentioned.

When one of my children was the victim of a very persistent bully, there was a total unwillingness of some teachers and the entire school administration to do anything about it. When we asked what would happen if our child hit the bully back, we were told our child would be suspended. The bully even had choked one child by tying a rope around his neck, yet nothing was ever done. The administration´s attitude was that he was a troubled boy, and the other children would just have to deal with it.
There was a complete blame-the-victims mentality.

The only thing that stopped the bully was that apparently one day some other kid pounded him.

Once again we see how the stubborn and inexplicable refusal of public officials to make all information about this terrible crime available to the public not only leaves room for but actively invites the creation and proliferation of personal theories and politically correct narratives in an attempt to make sense of what took place. There are many people for whom the currently popular "bullying" meme makes intuitive sense and who are prepared to invoke this alleged problem as an explanation for school shootings, suicides, and any number of bad things.

We still do not have the facts about Adam Lanza, his background, mental health problems, treatment, school experiences, signs and warnings, if any, of danger to others, his mother´s mental health, etc. etc. etc. Yet sweeping national gun control legislation is being proposed, using the Newtown massacre as justification and, sad to relate, some of the murdered children´s families as political props.

There is something grotesquely irrational about such a stampede to take action in the absence of the most elementary and, one might have thought, necessary facts as to what actually led to the Newtown massacre.

What is wrong with public officials that they stubbornly insist upon keeping the information they have gathered about this case secret? What possible good is served by such a policy? It should be obvious to anyone that such an information vacuum creates a space that is going to be filled in somehow, by somebody, with something - and that those who fill in the empty space will certainly be using their personal pet peeves and projects and preoccupations to do so.

Bullying has many sides. 70 years ago I was the biggest kid in the class and every little punk was there to proove how much of a coward I was. I had been told by my father never hit back, you´ll hurt some one.
So I took it. Often. After a few months, it occured to me, Hey, you´re stupid. Stop one and that´ll be it. I finally did. That little boy, the pride of his immigrant family, called me out. I warned him and then unloaded on him. I had been planning it for months and it was wonderful! I was suspended from school for a week and he was out of school for the same week. But that was not the end of it. Many slow learners in those days. The difference was that one quick punch and it was over. But I never missed out of any more school nor did my "victims." We grew up and out and it was over by the next year. Life went on.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — In January, residents here learned the news that the senior place-kicker for the University of Michigan’s football team had been permanently “separated” from the college for violating its student sexual misconduct policy. In addition, the violation, what the authorities said was a sexual assault, occurred in 2009, when the kicker was a freshman, and his punishment was not determined until his athletic career had ended this past winter. The article describing all of this, based on documents reviewed by two reporters, stated, “It’s unclear why sanctions were not decided in this matter until recently.” A month

In the wake of Kathleen Sebelius’s ouster from her job as secretary of Health and Human Services, there has emerged a debate about what the Los Angeles Times calls “Obamacare and the Sebelius legacy.” From a moral perspective, though, that is like debating whether Chairman Mao’s provision of free health care should overshadow the horrors of the Cultural Revolution. To be fair, the body count Sebelius left behind in Kansas does not nearly match that of Mao, but the body count is real. During Sebelius’s six years as governor, women came from 48 states and points beyond to have late-term

AUGUSTA, Ga.— Bubba Watson has won the Masters for the second time in three years. Watson claimed another green jacket by shooting a 3-under 69 in the final round Sunday, fending off Jordan Spieth’s bid to become the youngest major champion since 1931. The 20-year-old Texan led by two shots heading to the eighth hole, but the tournament changed suddenly. Watson made two straight birdies, Spieth took back-to-back bogeys — and just like that, Watson was up by two strokes at the turn. The left-hander led the rest of the way, adding to the 2012 title he won in more

The military is taking steps to prepare women for combat roles in 2016. The Marine Corps announced that it would give young female lieutenants who wash out of the grueling Infantry Officer Course a second shot, same as their male counterparts. The Army is conducting a study to test just how fit a soldier has to be to engage in combat. The study involves 60 women and 100 men. CBS News reported on both developments last week. The Marine Corps announcement came after Marine 2nd Lt. Sage Santangelo took the Infantry Officer Court and wrote about her experience last month

Moving Day at The Masters included 20-year-old golfer Jordan Spieth rising up the leaderboard to finish in 1st place alongside Bubba Watson. Saturday was an excellent opportunity for apparel manufacturer Under Armour to take center stage, with logos positioned all over Spieth’s sprawling body. The brand’s opportunity to be featured on air will only be enhanced in the Final Round with Spieth attempting to become the youngest player to win The Masters, besting a 21-year-old Tiger Woods who first won the tournament in 1997. Speaking of Tiger, he is noticeably absent from this year’s Masters Tournament. Rory McIlroy

Veteran investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson resigned from CBS News after 20 years with the network, expressing frustration at being unable to get her stories on air. Following Attkisson’s resignation, the folks at Fox News’ “Media Buzz” expressed dissatisfaction at the state of journalism in America’s newsrooms and the culture of liberal bias that exists. Appearing on the program on Sunday March 16th, the entire panel acknowledged the disturbing trend of journalists putting their politics above journalism with host Howard Kurtz observing that Attkisson felt it “was almost impossible to get these tougher pieces on the air.” As the segment began,

Today, the image would have gone viral in an instant: The president of the United States, dripping wet in swim trunks before a throng of excited beachgoers, trading a look and a laugh with an attractive woman in a polka-dot bikini. But well before the Internet´s relentless rationing of spontaneous fame, the 1962 photo of President Kennedy at Santa Monica´s beach made quite a splash. For a Los Angeles woman named Eva Ban, its effect lasted a lifetime. Ban was the woman in the two-piece swimsuit, which was called a bikini in news accounts but was modest by today´s standards.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of
