The Killer ....Edit: Not So Fast



Per CNN based upon this Slate tweet.

Edit: What a screw up.  Online magazine Slate quoted CNN as naming Ryan Lanza the killer (which is true) but then Slate linked to a facebook page.
Turns out the Facebook page linked to was not him!!! That's where I got the photo above.


Amazingly, Lanza listed his "hometown" as the location of the shooting.

Edit: It looks like this is Lanza's real twitter account.  Edit: Heck, now I'm not even sure that's correct. This is insane.

Edit: Good grief. Instant news is instant inaccuracy.

Barry, I've got a fair bit of respect for your skills and your intellect, even when I disagree with you (which is fairly often).

But I'm asking you, please: do NOT glorify this man's picture and name by spreading them. This is part of the problem. I've got a blog, too, but I'll never whisper his name. We must not make such people famous.

I agree with 1:25. These cowards do this in part for the notoriety (whether good or bad) that they get.

The media needs to quit publicizing these people and making them celebrities. We all know about Timothy McVeigh, Dylan Klebold and others, but how many can actually name the people that they are responsible for killing?

Poor guy. Not that THAT Ryan Lanza, THIS Ryan Lanza.

The actual Ryan Lanza looks like a half-breed. Figures, these sub-humans/primates (blacks) belong in the jungles. Got to hell, if you don't like what I say. It's a proven fact that the sub-humans/primates (blacks), commit more crimes than any other species.

Really 2:18, than why has every gunman been a white male and most serial killers are white males

I know I'm doing what I'm asking you not to do but please don't acknowledge 2:18. He is looking for notoriety too. Let the fool wallow in his own hate.

Except for that Asian guy, he was an exception

Can you not read? The shooter wasn't Ryan, but his brother- who is also half mud soul.

"most serial killers are white males"

True, but this is only because blacks do not have the intellectual capacity to orchestrate a well planned crime. They only have the capacity to commit brash, off-handed spur of the moment crimes. Intelligence will undoubtedly come to your people- just give it another 5k years or so, if they don't wipe each other out before then. (One can only hope).

I tend to agree that some of these people are fame whores, even if it means they attain it posthumously.

But the issue here is that some news orgs (and bloggers) think they have to get the name and life story of the alleged shooter out to the public within an hour of the event, and sometimes fail to get the facts straight. I personally don't see the need for immediacy on this subject. It's not gonna enrich my life being the first to get the info on him.
And if you are not a news gathering organization, and you don't have some personal attachment to this event, but feel you need to get all the morbid details as soon as possible, please feel free to get a !@#$ing life, because that's just lame

Mr. Green, see what you're contributing to?

Make it your policy NOT TO PUT UP INFORMATION ABOUT THE ACTOR!!!

(Unless he's at large.)

Sir, I implore you. Look into your heart. You are better than this, aren't you?

2:18PM would obviously FAIL the mental health test for gun ownership, if we had one. You are apparently one sad, deplorable and worthless person.

Liberal news outlets are so incompetent.

Obviously you ignorantly forget the black pair who terrorized several states back about 2002. They shot random victims from the trunk of a Chevy. Crazy example but the color of skin doesn't limit the ability to do insane acts.
