Anonymous Attacks Westboro Baptist Church Over Plans to Picket Sandy Hook Funerals

Anonymous Attacks Westboro Baptist Church Over Plans to Picket Sandy Hook Funerals | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The Westboro Baptist Church, widely reviled for its homophobic beliefs and protests of veteran funerals, announced on Saturday that it would picket at Sandy Hook Elementary School following the tragic shooting there Friday that took the lives of 27 people. Members of Anonymous began an operation against the Church to discourage them from protesting at the school and compounding the misery already experienced by Newtown residents.

In a video uploaded by KY Anonymous, the hacker collective states:

We will not allow you to corrupt the minds of America with your seeds of hatred. We will not allow you to inspire aggression to the social factions which you deem inferior. We will render you obsolete. We will destroy you. We are coming.

Anonymous also published the private information of many Westboro members, including email addresses, phone numbers and home addresses.
littlebytesnews's insight:

This is one thing I can agree with the anarchist group Anonymous on. The Westboro Baptist Church are totally misguided and hateful, they are not doing God's work but inciting anger, violence and malice towards innocent victims of horrific crimes and situations. For them to say this was God's will or God's way of 'executing His judgment' for the senseless mass murder of young children, they are mentally disturbed themselves.

High court fight looms over right to carry a gun--If principal or staff had been armed in #Newtown killer would have been stopped!

High court fight looms over right to carry a gun--If principal or staff had been armed in #Newtown killer would have been stopped! | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
A provocative ruling by a panel of federal appeals court judges in Chicago struck down the only statewide ban on carrying concealed weapons, in Illinois.
littlebytesnews's insight:

Sadly, liberals will never understand that disarming law abiding citizens and training teachers and staff to protect themselves and their students will save lives and prevent such mass casualties. Israel is a great example on national security and school security. Instead liberal politicians and anti-gun lobbyists want to ban guns and place more laws and controls that are ineffective. Often these weapons used in crimes are stolen, but if a madman doesn't use a gun they will find another means of mass destruction such as bombs, planes, knives etc. 

 

What needs to happen is teaching self defense, preparedness and adding more security in schools. Limit entry and exit doors during the day, especially when parents are dropping off or picking up kids. I know our sons school has the doors locked after all the kids are received or by the time the last bell rings. Parents are then expected to enter through the front office. However, I think more parents need to be told to not hold the door open for someone as they are leaving, after doors have been locked because someone could get in without being noticed, even if it is a familiar parent. I also think schools need at least one paid or volunteer armed security guard/person at the entrance during the day and/or a metal detector to check those who come into the building regardless of the time of day. 

 

Sadly, in the Sandy Hook shooting incident they had a high security system in place, required parents check in through the office by getting buzzed in and viewed them on camera first after doors were locked. However, according to reports, Adam Lanza broke into the building shooting his way through glass windows/doors. So perhaps bullet proof windows are necessary, which could be expensive but worth it in order to protect lives. If teachers would have been armed when they heard the chaos on the sound system they could have prepared with weapons out and hidden students or helped them evacuate if possible through back doors or windows away from the shooting/chaos.

 

I believe if the principal or one of the staff in the office was armed the mass casualties would not have left 20 young and innocent children dead, along with six staff members. I also believe if the heroic first grade teacher, Victoria Soto, would have been armed she could have saved herself after hiding her students and then shooting the gunman as he entered her classroom and confronted her in front of some students. Aidan Licata was a brave first grade student who ran and gathered some of his friends as soon as he saw his teacher get shot and ran as fast as they could towards the main road until a parent who heard of the incident at the school picked them up on her way to the school and took them to the police station.

 

It was reported today that the shooter took his own life once he realized armed officers were on the scene.  Therefore, confirming only those with weapons can stop a madman with a weapon. Guns kill people needlessly in the hands of a madman, but save people in the hands of law abiding citizens. 

 

Do you think your children's schools are safe enough and what else do you think needs to be done to make them safer?

Updated:Kindergarten Killers--Another Mass Murder;Two Crimes

Updated:Kindergarten Killers--Another Mass Murder;Two Crimes | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Highlights:
LBN Update 12/15/12 2:20pm MST: Fox reports the age of children were 6-7, eight were boys and 12 were girls, all six adults killed were women. The shooter was the only adult male killed by a self-inflicted gunshot.

LBN Update 12/15/12 1:40pm MST:Fox: The Medical Examiner, H Wayne Carver II, says all the victims were killed by gunshot, with three to eleven wounds each, he examined seven of the victims. He said the long range assault rifle caused most of the wounds.

...the biggest questions remain unanswered: why did he do it and what could have been done to prevent it or stop him?

His mother owned the guns, why she felt compelled to own so many weapons and where he obtained the ammunition are unknown at this time. The weapons he used were were legally purchased and registered to his mother, two law enforcement officials said. Two 9mm handguns were recovered inside the school. An AR-15-type rifle also was found outside. How he obtained the weapons is another question to consider. Update: It has come out that Adam and his mother went target shooting together and she was an avid gun collector and target shooter. My question is: Did she think it was therapeutic to have an unstable son learn to use guns??

For those who want to impose gun control laws on the mentally ill, the US already has laws against the mentally ill obtaining weapons:
Federal Law:
Under 18 U.S.C. § 922(d), it is unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of any firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that such person “has been adjudicated as a mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution.”
Considering he obtained all the weapons from his mother and ammo and was able to use them, as well as drive the car to the elementary school where his mom worked tell me he was not so crazy that he didn't know what he was doing. I'm sure he knew the difference from right and wrong, as most sociopaths and mass murderers do.

The New York Times reports further on his well being saying: Newtown shooter described by classmates as intelligent but uncomfortable in social situations. It was also reported that Adam Lanza was an honors student,but described as "deeply disturbed." According to the NY Daily News, Adam Lanza ....was a deeply disturbed kid,” a family insider told the Daily News. “He certainly had major issues. He was subject to outbursts from what I recall.”

After the most recent and heinous shooting of innocent young lives in Newton, Connecticut there has been a growing hysteria by the media and liberals to push gun control laws. However, what we should be supporting is better security and better prepared teachers and staff, including training and arming teachers and volunteer parents like they do in Israel. A new petition has been started to counter the anti-gun petition which has been circulating online: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/gun-every-classroom-arm-every-teacher-and-principal-defend-themselves-and-their-students-during/BR1Wj8cc

Therefore, we should be advocating for safer schools by providing better security rather than disarming law abiding citizens who could act as neutralizers during a shooting incident.

SHOCKING AUDIO: Gunman's rampage took only minutes, cop radio calls reveal

SHOCKING AUDIO: Gunman's rampage took only minutes, cop radio calls reveal | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Judging by the radio calls, it took only a few minutes for a gunman to snuff out the lives of 20 Newtown school children and six adults.

The first word of the horrifying Newtown school shooting went out over the town’s police radio at 9:36 this morning.

Two minutes later, a dispatcher reported the gunshots had stopped.

UP TO 27 PEOPLE SHOT DEAD AT SCHOOL

9:46 a.m., as police searched the school, someone who could not hide the emotion in his voice radioed these haunting words: “I’ve got bodies here. Need ambulances.”
littlebytesnews's insight:

So heartbreaking...why did he have to take such vengence on the children. Reports are that the weapons were registered to the mother.

 

Why did she have so many dangerous weapons and how did her mentally ill son get access to them?? It appears he woke up very angry with his mom and planned this out considering he was well armed and went from killing her to killing her students at a separate location.

 

If he had aspergers or a mental illness as some have reported, but have not been confirmed, it seems he knew better and knew right from wrong. He obviously knew what he was doing when he planned this out and acted upon it.

 

There are now conflicting reports that the brother was found dead, and other reports saying he and the father are cooperating with authorities.

Connecticut police will not confirm shooter's identity,but it has been reported Adam Lanza,20yro brother of Ryan Lanza was the shooter

An compilation interview with Quinnipiac students Andrew Vazzano and Ryan Lanza about The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.
littlebytesnews's insight:

Originally reports came out saying that the shooter in Newton, Conn was 24yro Ryan Lanza. It turns out it was his younger brother, 20yro Adam Lanza.  However, the police are still not willing to confirm the identity of the shooter.

 

News reports confirm someone was found dead in Newton, Conn home and a body in the home of the father. It has not been confirmed who the bodies are but previously were reported as the parents. The mother was identified as being a kindergarten teacher at the Sandy Hook Elementary school. 

 

It appears the shooter, Adam Lanza, took vengence against the mother's students in her kindergarten class. 18 students were prounced dead at the scene, along with six adults and the shooter, with a self inflicted gunshot. Two students died at the hospital or enroute. 

 

There are uncomfirmed reports Adam found out his father wasn't his real father. The parents were divorced, but the father he knew in NJ was not his birth father. I haven't heard other reports on this but will update when I get more information on the identities and the circumstances of this shooting. Right now a motive has not been given, but seasoned police say it is obvious this was a planned event since the shooter had seveal weapons, body armor and knew the wearabouts of the school and classroom.

 

According to the 2008 video of Ryan Lanza...he said he thinks they are worthwhile news sources for young people. His friend says it's comedy but some people take it for real news, but sometimes it's right and truthful. Ryan think it is funny and on later at night and makes people laugh. They both agreed it had influence on young people in the 2008 election.

This Ryan Lanza Says 'IT WASN'T ME' on Facebook

 

Here are my previous tweets and status/facebook updates on the shooting in Newton, Conn:

 

Fox:Now possible shooter is the younger brother&not Ryan Lanza but Adam Lanza??The shooter killed himself per news conference,20 kids dead&8 adults,including the shooter who has now been identified as Adam Lanza, the 20yro brother of Ryan Lanza.

 

It is confirmed both the mother and father have been found dead. The mother worked at the school in Newton, Conn and the father was found dead in NJ 

https://www.facebook.com/rlanza  this was the link to RyanLanza's facebook page, it has since been removed and his brother's page was set to private and removed. 

 

Fox:After shooter shot his mother&kindergartners,he walked down the hall&shot&killed the principal;sme other children may be in serious condition;number dead could rise to 30

 

Fox:Obama says we must come together to take meaningful action against these things regardless of the politics involved....gun ban coming??

Obama Let 1 Billion Dollars in School Security Funds Lapse Before Sandy Hook Mass Shooting

President Obama sobbed on live television while trying to soothe the nation in the wake of the horrific Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Connecticut.

However, according to The Washington Guardian, both the president and Congress "quietly" let federal funding for school security programs lapse — out of budget concerns.

According to the Guardian, two Justice Department programs that provided more than $200 million to schools for training, security equipment and police resources over the last decade weren't renewed in 2011 and 2012.

In addition, a program that provided $800 million to put police officers inside schools was ended a few years earlier; and funding for an Education Department program to prepare schools for mass tragedies was also terminated.

The report says that the funding was cut off "even though the Government Accountability Office, the investigative arm of Congress, warned in 2007 that many 'many school district officials said that they experience challenges in planning for emergencies due to a lack of equipment, training for staff, and expertise and some school districts face difficulties in communicating and coordinating with first responders and parents.'"

Anyone surprised?? In the meantime, Obama sends our $$ and weapons to Egypt, Syria, Hamas in Gaza and the drug cartel in Mexico and funds mosque restoration in the Middle East.

 

Who's side is he on?? Does he care about us??Our safety, our children? Our lives?? Our jobs?? Our economy, our future, our country?? NO!!!

 

It's time to impeach&imprison him for treason...he can not and will not uphold his oath to the Constitution. He continues to bypass it and ignore it and fails to do the right thing on numerous occassions. 

 

Tonight we will have to hear him speak once again, offering his false hope&calls for civility, while ignoring the need for better mental health care and school security and will go back to DC to push his liberal anti-gun ideologoy, along with the rest of the anti-gun Congress. Thereby, walking all over our 2nd amendment rights and our Constitution again and not putting the citizens safety first, which he is his first duty as POTUS.

Obama plays healer-in-chief again--Another photo-op&chance to push gun control based on emotions

Obama plays healer-in-chief again--Another photo-op&chance to push gun control based on emotions | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
RT @washingtonpost: President Obama will visit Newtown today. Just as he did for Ft. Hood, Tucson and Aurora. http://t.co/HEJaEO4e
littlebytesnews's insight:

What a joke, he hasn't healed anyone, hasn't brought justice to many families and victims especially in the case of the Ft. Hood shooter, Fast&Furious, Brian Kelly, and in Benghazighate. Everytime he attends these mass shooting events and offers his platitutudes of  calls to 'civility' he is only using them as photo ops and as a political opportunity to use the emotions of those affected to push an anti-gun agenda rather than address the real issue, which should be better security in schools, arming&training school staff, and improving methods to report, diagnose and treat the mentally ill. There were many signs Adam Lanza, like Jared Loughner of Tucson, and the many other mass shooters had mental issues. It's not the gun that kills, it's the person who pulls the trigger!

God's Loan

"I'll loan you for a little time
a child of mine," He said,
"For you to love the while he lives,
and mourn for when he's dead,

It may be six or seven years,
or twenty-six or seven,
But you will, till I call him back,
take care of him for Me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you,
and should his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories
as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay,
since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there
I'll want this child to learn.

I've looked this wide world over
in my search for teachers true,
And from the throng that crowd life's lanes,
I have selected you.

Now, will you give him all your love,
nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to call
to take him back again?

I fancied that I heard you say,"
Dear Lord, Thy will be done,
For all the joy Thy child shall bring,
the risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shelter him with tenderness,
we'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known,
forever grateful stay.

But should the angels call for him
much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.

Family of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry sues officials #fastandfurious

Family of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry sues officials #fastandfurious | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
PHOENIX (AP) — The family of a slain Border Patrol agent has sued federal officials over the botched "Fast and Furious" gun operation.Agent Brian Terry was mortally wounded on Dec.

The lawsuit filed Thursday and made publicly available on Friday came from Terry's parents against six managers and investigators for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The family also sued a federal prosecutor who had previously handled the case but is no longer on it, and the owner of the gun store where two rifles found in the firefight's aftermath were bought.

The family alleges that the ATF officials and federal prosecutor created a risk to law enforcement officers such as Terry and that the firearms agents should have known their actions would lead to injuries and deaths to civilians and police officers in America and Mexico.

The family also alleged that firearms agents and the prosecutor sought to cover up the link between Terry's death and the botched gun smuggling investigation.

The "Fast and Furious" operation was launched in 2009 to catch trafficking kingpins, but agents lost track of about 1,400 of the more than 2,000 weapons involved.

Fox News contributor Steven Crowder puts wife under armed guard as threats pour in | Twitchy

Fox News contributor Steven Crowder puts wife under armed guard as threats pour in | Twitchy | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Right now I have a former police officer, heavily armed at my house protecting my wife. The threats are severe. Prayers appreciated.—Steven Crowder (@scrowder) December 14, 2012

Fox News contributor Steven Crowder was viciously assaulted and threatened with murder in Michigan on Tuesday as a mob of knife-wielding union thugs slashed an Americans for Prosperity tent to pieces. Since then, the Left has engaged in a despicable victim-blaming campaign while media lapdogs have ignored the union violence or tried to discredit Crowder with falsehoods.

A Michigan Dem promised “there will be blood,” and evidently the bloodlust wasn’t sated on Tuesday. Threats have grown so severe that Crowder says he’s brought in an armed guard to protect his wife.

What say you, progressives?

On Thursday, the state director of Americans for Prosperity-Michigan filed a police report and called on labor leaders to condemn the union violence. Let’s hope the goons who assaulted Crowder and right-to-work activists in Michigan and the thug-supporters threatening his family are brought to justice swiftly.

Oh, and for the unhinged libs and media (sorry, redundant) suggesting Crowder provoked the Tuesday assault? Try again:

littlebytesnews's insight:

Leave it to looney, violent liberal union thugs to issue threats against a conservative activist and his family. He did not provoke the fight, the Union thugs did and violently destroyed private property. I hope these thugs are all arrested and whoever is threatening Crowder's family are charged with harassment and incitement of violence as well.

 

So much for civility and being the tolerant left.
