And it keeps getting worse.

18 kids dead, 26 people in all so far. Every time you look the toll goes higher.

This is a sick, twisted, reeking fucking world.

NEWTOWN, Conn. -- A lone gunman killed 26 people at an elementary school here, including 18 children, in a terrifying early Friday morning shooting spree.

The Associated Press and local media reported the shooter, an unidentified 20-year-old adult male, was also dead inside Sandy Hook Elementary School. A second person was in custody and undergoing questioning. Two handguns were recovered at the scene. Mayor Mark Boughton said several victims had been taken to local hospitals.

Groups of students — some crying, some holding hands — were escorted from the school by teachers. Some witnesses reported of up to 100 shots. There were unconfirmed reports that the assailant, dressed in military style assault gear, shot most of the victims in a kindergarten classroom.


A motherfucking kindergarten classroom? My God... I mean what do you say to that and how is anyone deranged enough to think that through and carry it out?

I'm watching my kid laughing and running around. Having fun at the gym. I feel like puking...or crying. I don't know.

Why does this keep happening?

It will take a few days as usual to get some clues as to why this incident happened. Like always though there will be similarities to all the other ones, but it still doesn't answer the question mo.

Beyond sad, and I cannot imagine even being a parent, 1000 miles away from this, waiting for their kids to get home today, or sitting with them in a car going shopping.

I don't know dudes.

They're are some seriously shitty people in the world. Some of them have kids. Some of those kids are fucking shitty people and they grow up shittier and meaner and probably more fucked up than the people or person that raised them.

Do parents of 7 yr olds out there have to talk to their kindegartners about what to do if a deranged individual walks into their room and starts executing their friends and classmates while they're napping on their mats? I mean, who would have that conversation and why would you have to? When is the right time for that talk? Is there ever a right time for that talk?

Jesus Christ.... torture and cruelty wouldn't even be close to good enough for the piece of shit.

Do we reach a point where security at schools is federally mandated? Is that the right answer, is it an answer?

You start thinking of possible solutions and it all gets to sound creepy.

Not to mention the kids that have to carry this with them for a long time. I cannot think of a bigger downer than when this happens.

It's going to move to a total lock down of all schools. We have an officer here everyday, as do all the middle and high schools in the city.
But there are literally over 60 doors on the first floor. Some have to remain open because we have portable classrooms outside.

It would take 12 officers to properly patrol the campus. Add in metal detectors, new locks/ doors and people to work the entrances and you're talking about adding 30% to a school's budget.

We've lost something like 15 million from our budget over the past 4 years.

We know for sure guns won't be outlawed, so what's another reasonable solution?

What does it say about us as Americans that we would need our schools patrolled by guards? Christ, you would expect to hear about that in Kandahar or Tikrit.

That why I say the solutions that pop in our heads become creepy, b/c we are supposed to be way beyond better than this.

It's not the time to get into our individual beliefs and ideals and how this country should be, but it sure makes me realize how vulnerable those ideals and principles are once the security of your children come into the mix.

I applaud all your guys' efforts as parents, but I do not envy what you have to think about and possibly talk about today.

I'll be the guy had a schizophrenic breakdown and decided this was his way of getting back at the world. Word is he killed his dad at home then went to the school where his mother worked, killed her, and shot up her classroom.

We've been treating mentally unstable people in this country as disposable garbage for decades. That, more than anything else, leads to things like this.

Even Facebook is dealing with this with closing his page, removing it, then having tons of copy cat pages come up. If people have nothing better to do when these tragedies happen then do that stuff well that isn't a good sign of the health of our kind either.

Even if they were outlawed, it wouldn't solve the problem. Sick fucks can get guns. Or maybe they just start resorting to mixing household chemicals to create explosives.

Armed guards and metal detectors is where this eventually will go. If that's what they need to do, that's what they need to do.

The big question I guess is where does the money come from to pay for all that...

But you have to. Copycat sick fucks see how much attention these events produce, and it's not like we have a shortage of sick fucks.

I haven't seen anything else about it other than one tweet, so it's looking more like bullshit to me. But yeah.

The only thing stopping me would be my wife. Couldn't do it to her. But if this happened to us, I can see us deciding that its a nice night to sleep in the garage.

Horrible

1,000 of miles away and every single teacher in our building had tears in their eyes when the news trickled in.

Takes one sick MFer to do that to a bunch of kids that young.

My principal and I were talking about security after school. No easy solution to this problem, cuz in all honesty, in just about every elem around....a sick bastard like that will be able to get all they can eat until somebody finally is able to stop them, or they off themselves. Unless you go to metal detectors and armed security which will cost millions for already cash strapped school districts.

I raced home to hug my little guys after school......my heart is ripped out thinking about those poor little students and their parents.

Turned on WTAM at my desk when I caught wind of this. Fox News was on the coverage - woulda been better off with random Twitter. Unbelievable what they threw at the wall in an hour. " Guy was 20. No 25. There are two shooters. No just one. We got his picture. No, that's not him. And on and on.....

Gotta 5 year old in Kindergartern......just came back from a life-changing weekend at St. Jude's hospital in Memphis where I met some parents of young kids that didn't make it....and now there will be 50 some odd more parents with that eternal look of sadness in their eyes I saw over the weekend...

Just got off the phone with our 31 year old daughter a few minutes ago. I've always told our kids I'm indifferent about being a grandma. Told our daughter today she had better not bring an innocent baby into today's world. Too many crazies out there doing too much evil.

Everyone, hold your kids a little tighter tonight. Pray for the families of these little ones - they will certainly need it.Image

Not going to state my position on gun control here because it doesn't matter.

But I think that eventually we'll look back on this date and remember it as the straw that broke the camels back, and forced radical change.

We're about 1 1/2 hours away from the school (always stop at a diner about a mile from it when we travel from our home in MA to anywhere south and west) and the latest report on the local sites states the shooter used his Mom's guns (and his brother's ID) when he went on his rampage. Question some of the guns Mom owned, but even if all she had was a hunting rifle what could have stopped the wacko from wreaking havoc? Bet if he was determined enough he could find a recipe for a pipe bomb online and toss it into the same classroom.

Nothing. But there's no pipe bomb agenda to be politicized.

Was told this line was on Twitter, who said it I have no clue.

It has a point.

If you think a man who killed his mother and a host of children would be constrained by a law you want, you're a fool.

There's no stoping a man who has the intention of this. It's just horror. The Heart of Darkness horror. And there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. And it's really sad. Really sad.

As a parent I don't even want to think about IF this happened at my childrens school. It's unimaginable. I know last night and today these guys have a little more leeway than normal

How awful is it for these parents of the victims to have to walk back into their home after all this only to see holiday decorations and wrapped presents they were going to place under the tree knowing that the holidays will NEVER be the same.

My heart goes out to the first responders and what they must have felt/still be feeling after walking into that classroom yesterday.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Aaaaand part 3 of the cycle begins...you could set your watch.

Part one - the tragedy itself, we doubt our fellow man.

Part Two - Selfless acts of charity and goodwill in the wake, we feel better about some.

Part Three - a 100 million dollar lawsuit against the school and board. Piece of shit lawyer, piece of shit parents. Wonder if that kid was even out of the school before they had their calculators out. Fuck you.

It's not even the parents of one one the kids that died. It's the parents of a kid that made it.
