The CT news station is reporting we don't know if his father is dead, if his brother had anything to do with this, and that his girlfriend and friend are missing.

The last name of the guy is Lanza, the first name is either Ryan or Adam. They are brothers and there seems to be some confusion on which was the shooter. Regardless the guy went to his mother's class, killed her, then killed everyone in her class. There are no words for this.

This keeps getting more and more fucked up as they dig through the pieces. I just really don't get any of this...

I guess, they won't say more, but if it wasn't related then I'd think they would say that. Maybe the dad isn't in NJ, maybe it's a girlfriend of the other friend reported missing. More info in 60 minutes the cop said.

And the shooter now has a name:
Which we should all do our best to forget. Let posterity treat him with the contempt he deserves.

The ancient Romans called it damnatio memoriae--a judgment that a person should not be remembered.

Let his name be blotted out forever.

^^^ I like that. A lot. Unfortunately, I don't think the media is going to allow us to forget for quite some time the way this is playing out.

Fortunately, lately the media is saying shooters' names less and less, but giving a title without the name.

Is that why I just got three news messages saying his name is Adam?

What does it matter what his name was? It could've been Scrooby McGee. The guy was pretty fucked-up and killed innocent people.

I don't want to start a political discussion, but the government needs to do something about gun violence in this country.
