Now that we have processed the fact that twenty babies have died in an unnecessary act of violence, our emotions have turned to anger. With anger comes blame as many have spoken out about who they blame.
While the President and others have blamed assault weapons as the culprit and others blamed the government for not having enough mental health programs, I put the blame where it belongs, on the mother. That’s right. Forget political correctness of not blaming the parents for their children’s actions. I strongly believe that this mother Nancy Lanza’s actions and non actions created this nightmare.
This Toxic mother’s denial, paranoia about doomsday, and her irresponsible behavior ultimately caused 20 innocent precious babies their lives and killed the hearts of anyone who knew these children, including their parents.
Adam Lanza was said to be suffering from Ausberger’s Syndrome- a form of autism along with many other behavioral and personality issues according to reports. But in my view it was not the Ausbergers syndrome that made him commit this heinous act.
In fact the medical examiner agrees with my line of thinking in that he consulted with the U of Connecticut’s genetics division to see if there was any identifiable genes that could explain this this young man’s action.
Even if there is a genetic component found to Adam Lanza’s makeup that lead him to kill innocent people, my feelings are that it was exacerbated by the environment he was living in and the actions of his mother .
As many have described him, he had issues relating to others, however one high school acquaintance described Adam Lanza as being compassionate when that acquaintance was going through his own issues. So obviously that indicates that Adam was a very high functioning person with Ausperber’s syndrome. It shows that he knew right from wrong and had feelings towards others.
Adam was also said to have been very bright as he attended college at the age of 16 and was a computer whiz. Evidence of his computer knowledge could be seen when the FBI and others could not fix the hard drive of his computer which he smashed.
HATED HIS MOTHER
This act alone shows me that this was a calculated act. He knew exactly what he was going to do and wanted to leave no trace of himself behind. The act of killing his mother while she was defenseless in her sleep speaks volumes. It reflects his deep deep hatred of her. Obviously he felt she was a negative controlling influence in his life when she was awake, so while she slept, he was the one on control over her life. He also preyed on others who were defenseless – children.
He not only wanted to eradicate his mother, but anything associated with his mother such as her two “friends”- the high school principal and the school therapist, whom he shot and killed.
His anger towards his mother was not an overnight thing. There is no doubt she witnessed his rage towards her on a regular basis. In fact it must have become so bad that she apparently wanted to have him institutionalized and made legal steps to do so. This obviously didn’t sit well with her troubled son.
TOXIC AND DISTURBED MOTHER
Her steps at seeking help for her son were too little too late. She no doubt must have spent her entire life with him in denial and the result of that was that she was shot in the face at close range by her enraged son.
The woman was apparently a survivalist. That is why she kept an arsenal of guns around herself and kept herself isolated. She didn’t share her feelings about her son with others. Instead she kept her son’s issues a secret and paid the ultimate price.
There is no doubt that her son who was with her 24/7 and had little or no productive outside interests, picked up on her paranoia that the world was coming to an end or that there would be impending disaster to the point that she she had to have ammunition and extreme firearms to defend herself.
It was reported according to the agents form the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, that the mother took her son to local firearm ranges to practice shoot their assault weapons.
This information is devastating. How can a mother allow a severely troubled son who has no doubt shown fits of rage from time to time, to even get near a gun?
How could she allow him to play with violent video and war games as officials have discovered. In fact FBI investigator Robert Paquette reported
“Many of these games are very, very violent. I can’t help but believe these can affect the minds of someone unbalanced.”
Apparently the mother did mention to an acquaintance that she was involving her son with firearms in order to teach him responsibility. This is obviously misguided thinking.
If she wanted to teach him responsibility, she needed to get him a pet hamster or a dog and make him responsible to feeding them, not give him firearms.
What is very telling is that her older 24 year old son Ryan had not been in touch with his mother for years. Perhaps their estrangement had something to do with the way she lived her life and isolated herself and her younger son.
But perhaps the most telling thing of all is that according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, in Farmington, Connecticut was that neither her eldest son, 24 year old Ryan Lanza or no other family member had yet come forward to claim her body and the body of her troubled son Adam.
This lack of identifying and picking up her mutilated body shows that her family including her ex husband Peter Lanza, speaks volumes in that he essentially holds her as well as his own son Adam accountable for the deaths of these innocent children.
May these 20 little souls rest in peace forever.
