Masks, Holmes Lexilink + List of Victims

The complete list of the victims has been released.

The Mask

Humans wear all kinds of masks: psychological ones, somatic examples, acting facades, and of course, real physical structures called "masks."

On Friday, December 14, 2012, as I noted, there occurred the "Newtown School Shooting: Killing Dawn" event.

During an interview with a Sandy Hook school parent this Saturday morning, on the television news, this woman heard that a guy dressed in all black, wearing a mask, was shooting at the school on Friday.

Then a correspondent (TP), this AM, sent an article from the UK's Globe Mail, headlined, "High school loner to cold-blooded executioner: How 'genius' honor student Adam Lanza became masked killer."

The news item noted:
Lanza is believed to have shot himself at the scene, according to the New York Times. 
He was carrying three weapons including two handguns and a rifle and was wearing a bullet-proof vest, a mask and black military gear.
Three guns were found at the scene - a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols - and a .223-caliber rifle. 
The rifle was recovered from the back of a car at the school. The two pistols were recovered from inside the school. They were legally registered to Nancy Lanza.

That article never truly followed up on their headline suggestion, for it fails to detail any description of a mask.

Update: Intriguingly, these "mask references" have been removed from the original Daily Mail article. But the "masked man" quotes remain in many sources. What's going on?

But, if Adam Lanza (Adam = English for "man," Lanza = Spanish for "spear") wore a mask, what did the mask look like?

The Holmes Lexilink

The July 20th/Aurora's alleged shooter is named James Eagan Holmes.

Today's New York Daily News had this quote:
Mother Nancy Lanza often took her kids target shooting, landscaper Dan Holmes said. 'That was a passion,' he said. 'The whole family would go together.' Her 20-year-old son Adam killed her with one of her own guns before using them to murder 20 children at the elementary school where she once worked....Holmes, who often mowed the grass at the Lanza’s sprawling Newtown home, said the doomed mom was proud of her arsenal and once showed him a “big, beautiful rifle” she had just purchased.
“She was very proud of it,” he said. “She loved her guns.” 

The Newtown Victims

Here is the complete list of victims released by the medical examiner's office (which does not include Nancy Lanza, 52, and Adam Lanza, 20). Most of those who died in the school, apparently and sadly, were killed with the .223 Remington Bushmaster (semi-automatic) rifle. New information notes that this Bushmaster was not found in Lanza's vehicle, but next to his body.

USA Today posted a gallery of photos of the victims. See here.

Clackamas Mask 

It will be recalled that the Clackamas mall-December 11th's alleged shooter, Jacob Tyler Roberts wore a hockey mask, also described by some as a "Jason mask."

These killers all have what we call Tight Mouth, where the lips are firmly pressed together in anger or refusal to speak.

Strange, all these shootings. And again a shooter with large, round, blank eyes. The news is not really getting into the background of Lanza, his mother, or just who was the body found at another location ( other than the mother). If he in fact wore a mask that would be interesting to know. The only synchromystic connection (sort of), which is obvious enough, is the name Mario Lanza.

Regardless of whatever info is released on him.... chances are, you wont be told the truth... it wouldnt blow my mind... (yet id like to know) if adam was ever institutionalized.... interesting how the 223 was in the car... (that didnt hold much clout) now its magically next to his body... the media is a joke.

... i feel they simply arent allowed to speak... what do you think if the thought crossed james holmes or loughners minds to explain things... the white house and cnn would buddy up for an hour long uncensored un mind controlled interview/speech. Get real.

In some german online news I just read, that - after Adam Lanzas parents had divorced (like 6 yrs ago?) - he would start to talk strange stuff about bombs, and aliens.

They are quoting Lanza's aunt in the press. Mentioned she was a "Chrystal Lake" resident.

Chrystal Lake is the setting of Friday the 13th.

Thank you, and everyone for all of your insightful additions to the Newtown event.

Be safe.

Hospital shooting in Birmingham, AL:

Mall parking lot shooting in Newport Beach, CA (Macy's comes up again):,0,3525149.story

I have been planning on writing a followup to my essay "An Alchemical Dawn" as the end of the theatrical run of Red Dawn approaches, but I think I will wait until the gunfire settles down. So much madness...

Apparently Suzanne Collins who wrote HUNGER GAMES lives in or around Sandy Hook. Hunger Games - a film about killing teenagers.

A residence there called Fairfield Hills Hospital was used as the Wilkinson Home for Boys in the film SLEEPERS - a film about raping and abusing teenage boys.

In Germany, they report, Adam Lanza did wear a bullet proof vest. If that's true, it makes me wonder..

With James Eagan Holmes, all the elements of how the Aurora shooting played out, it looked very much like a Manchurian Candidate set up. But oddly not so much with Adam Lanza. Yet both he and Holmes have the same round, staring, soulless eyes and both described as genius level. Considering how the media initially got every fact wrong when the story broke, which was then picked up by all foreign news, it seems open now for the media to spin this shooting any way it pleases away from any hint of a Manchurian Connection.

Aside from a bunch of synchs I've found, when I was done doing my research I decided to watch some basketball highlights...
Apparently the Masked Man struck the New york Knicks on Saturday (same day as shootings). Masked Man being Kyrie Irving who was wearing a really creepy black mask as he had a career best 41-point game.

Here are some more shocking "coincidences". The USA, the very country where these massacres occur, has:

*the worst child abuse record in the industrialised world.

*their average child watching 8,000 fictional murders before leaving elementary school.

*leads the world in the production, sale and rental of first-person shooter video games.

*more prisoners, per capita, than any country on earth.

*192 million firearms owned by civilians - more than any other country in the world.

*number one exporter of weapons on the planet

*engaged in 50+ foreign military assaults since WWII, killing 4-5 million humans.

*In 2011-2012 alone, the United States was killing people in nine different countries (Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen, Honduras Philippines, Kenya)

*Yet more Americans (if we include Native Americans) were killed by other Americans during the 20th century than died in the Spanish-American war, World War I & II, the Korean police action, and the Vietnam War combined.

Could these all be "coincidences" - or is some deeper involved?!?

"What is impressive to one who begins to learn about American violence is its extraordinary frequency, its sheer commonplaceness in our history, its persistence into very recent and contemporary times, and its rather abrupt contrast with our pretensions to singular national virtue."
