Story changes again ...

"The shooting itself lasted an hour and half to two hours," said [Chief Michael Kehoe with the Newtown Police Department]. "

Huh? Was Lanza in the school for hours? The kids were only there a short time at 9:30. The SHOOTING ITSELF lasted two hours? What happened to:

"Then around 9:30 Friday morning, staffers in the front office heard "popping noises." Police say those were likely the sounds of Lanza shooting out the glass of one of the school doors. Police radio logs suggest the shooting lasted about 10 minutes."

How do you go from he shot the glass of the doors out, came in and started shooting kids to he was shooting for two hours?

Which story is the true story?

Black Helicopters

They took a while to get there.

Busy fluoridating water somewhere nearby.

Surely this liberal Obama conspiracy will be uncovered.

Get on it!

You must have forgotten that the time span of the entire incident included Lanza shooting his mother before he went to the school.

"jesus h. need some serious psychiatric help.."

coming from someone who posted this-

"i reiterate my belief that cruiztwit..

is being paid to do this..

and who knows how many other sites and boards he has inflicted himself on?

he'll have to prove he isn't being paid..the Koch brothers will hire anyone who toes their party line.."

pot-kettle much?

of course, this is the same person who walks around calling everyone puzo.

He's talking about the police response....


There's the initial call, the response, the confusion at the scene as it's secured, the search for possible suspects, the evacuation of the kids, the response to the first crime scene, securing it.

The shooting itself was over in a matter of minutes.

But to police "the shooting" is the response to the shooting.

Look at the context of the quote that you carefully edited to take out of context.

What follows is: "The officers did very well during the event-- but the aftermath is what we weren't prepared for. You have the media in your community for days and weeks on end and reconnecting with you every six months."

He's NOT talking about Lanza. He's talking about HIS POLICE OFFICERS.

If we take the quote you sliced up the way you want, then you'd have to argue that the shooting lasted "for days and weeks on end" and recurs "every six months."

What Kehoe says is: "The SHOOTING ITSELF lasted an hour and half to two hours,"

Kehoe does NOT say: "Our RESPONSE ITSELF lasted an hour and half to two hours."

It's his quote, not mine, directly from his own mouth. So the shooting timeline has changed again? Or is his statement incorrect?

But who should question it, right? Asking questions is a no no.

asking questions is good

Jumping to conclusions without all the facts is bad.

The story you linked to beenthere is from a small, beginner's market in North Carolina. The quote is not given with context of what the chief considered "the shooting". A good journalist would have asked the question if the answer wasn't provided in the presentation. We don't know if the chief considers "the shooting" to have begun with mamma gun nut being shot or "the shooting" ending is considered to be with the last shot or when law enforcement considered the scene secured or when they had a handle on how many children were senselessly gunned down. It appears no one at the small market North Carolina station questioned the inconsistency of length of the massacre.

Yes, there are questions and the North Carolina "journalist" either failed to provide a clear story or failed to ask important questions.

It's humorous...if disconcerting...that liberals

often have to redefine the English language to "prove" their points.

Good try its just tv;

But since beenthere started this with "Story changes again ...", I don't think your logic will seep through...

We'll never know the exact minute Lanza killed his Mother. We know the shootings at the school were about 9:34, Police etc were there within minutes, fear and search of other suspects about 9:40, search in school five minutes later, ONE HOUR after the initial shootings,still "unconfirmed reports that one of the shooters is dead while the other is still at large", (that's also when that famous pic of the kids being led out was taken), at 11:34 Police finally say the shooter is dead and two weapons were recovered from him, search for other suspects called off.

Now that's over an hour by anyone's clock. BTW, I have asked the local reporter to clarify her report, she hasn't responded yet. When she does, I'll post it.

No conspiracy here beenthere. Sorry. To echo the sentiment again, asking questions is always a good thing. Looking, hoping, and praying there's a conspiracy under every rock is a bad thing.

(Were there hordes of Russian troops nearby Sandy Hook that day? Was the US Air Force dropping chemicals on everyone at the same time? Was U.S. Dept of Justice organizing protests?? See where your history can paint you as kind of a MIB fan?)

read the full article again -- IN CONTEXT.

When you read the full quote, it is clear to anyone with even a basic understanding of English that he's talking about the police response at the crime scene -- not about the Lanza's actions.

You really are grasping at straws with this one, and exhibiting the worst characteristics of the fusion paranoia of the fringe -- selectively editing a quote to get the results you want.
