Everything that happens is a conspiracy these days.

Ridiculous.



The reason there were more "eye witnesses" is because the teachers were following protocol and having the students hide.



The shooter's mother was a prepper and had a lot of that stuff that using in the house.

I don't agree or disagree.



I'm just wondering people's viewpoints.



If you think it is a conspiracy, why? Details?



If you think it's not, why? Details?




Not just "Well it ain't cuz that's dum lawl"



Debate and discuss?

Everyone is looking at someone to blame for a tragedy like that. The government is always the go to scapegoat.

The woman is a raving lunatic.



First, why would a journalist grill a child (who just witnessed schoolmates executed by a monster) with the details?



Second, there were lots of initial reports that ended up being categorically false...in the rush to be first at breaking news, each network failed at vetting the info they were receiving.



Third, why would there be so many inaccurate reports if the government had it all planned out? Why wouldn't they have the information ready to be fed to the news media, with every i dotted and t crossed?



Fourth, the mom was a known collector of firearms and such. So, the murderer didn't have to purchase the items himself. Just because he's shy around people, that makes him incapable of purchasing anything related to the shootings?



Fifth, I hope to Jeebus that nobody actually follows this loony's flawed logic to the same incongruous conclusion as she did.

No, I don't think it's a government conspiracy.
First, I cannot find any legit articles that say Peter Lanza or Robert Holmes are connected to the Libor scandal.
Second, does she not realize that a lot of times news stations are just basically guessing at facts. There was a video where a news station was reporting about something huge and it ended up just being a movie set. That's how the news can change details so much.
And third, she's bat shit crazy.
