Ryan Lanza was originally qouted as saying he knew that it was his brother, Adam who committed this horrific massacre.

Ryan called daddy first thing of course, so it wasn't a random reporter that surprised Peter Lanza with the news; he already knew.

Why did Ryan automatically know it was his own brother who did it?

Adam obviously showed warning signs that Ryan and Peter were aware of, yet they did nothing to stop.

For the love of mary, i don't understand why the families don't have a class action suit against the Lanza family. It seems they were aware of Adam's troubles, and also of Nancy's mental health issues as well.
Sweeping it under the rug never works, look what happened.

I do believe that Peter or Ryan had a duty to warn, that Adam had threatened to do bad things. People should always take this seriously. Or you will end up like the Lanzas.

Had Peter or Ryan dutifully warned the police or a hospital about Adam, have him committed for 72 hours, etc. Don't we have laws to protect against these messes?
NY has Kendra's law.

The family should be held liable, they can run and hide all they want. The father has avoided the media the whole entire time, fearing a lawsuit.
We've only heard 2 peeps out of Ryan, the first to blame his brother and declare himself innocent.

The 2nd peep from Ryan was to claim himself a victim, which is just..... pathetic to put it lightly. Not the best choice of words in the circumstances when there are 27 victims already who will never get to breathe again.

60 School Shootings Linked To Psychiatric Drugs Over Past 20 Years.

While in the wake to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre most of the debate has centered around gun control, perhaps more of the debate should be focused on the mood altering drugs that people are being given as more than 60 school shootings among and more than 4,800 violent attacks have been linked to psychiatric drugs.

The website SSRI Stories ( ) tracks violence related to psychiatric drugs. The site has links to more than 60 school shooting incidents as well as other violent acts over the past 20 years.

This website is a collection of 4,800+ news stories with the full media article available, mainly criminal in nature, that have appeared in the media (newspapers, TV, scientific journals) or that were part of FDA testimony in either 1991, 2004 or 2006, in which antidepressants are mentioned.

This web site focuses on the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), of which Prozac (fluoxetine) was the first. Other SSRIs are Zoloft (sertraline), Paxil (paroxetine)(known in the UK as Seroxat), Celexa (citalopam), Lexapro (escitalopram), and Luvox (fluvoxamine). Other newer antidepressants included in this list are Remeron (mirtazapine), Anafranil (clomipramine) and the SNRIs Effexor (venlafaxine), Cymbalta (duloxetine) and Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) as well as the dopamine reuptake inhibitor antidepressant Wellbutrin (bupropion)(also marketed as Zyban).

Although SSRI Stories only features cases which have appeared in the media, starting March 2012 there will be a Website: which will allow personal stories to appear in a different Website from SSRI Stories. This is the work of Dr. David Healy

By clicking on the links, you will be taken to the story. Here is a snip from the first link: Hours before he walked into a Northern Illinois University lecture hall and inexplicably started a shooting rampage that ended five lives and his own, Steve Kazmierczak called one of the people he was closest to and said what would be a final goodbye.

I do not. And I abhor witchcraft, as does the Lord.

Anyway, what happened, who did what, why? Can't speak of drugs if there is no Adam. That would just be silly.

Not so fast cowboy.

The Government must persue EVERYTHING relative to Adam Lanza.

His boyhood.

His bullying.

His friends.

His family.

Movies he viewed.

Games he played.

WEB sites he visited.

His activities.

The drugs prescribed.

The drugs detectable in his system, hair, nails etc.

AND THEN produce a report with everything in it to the public.

Jeez, you got half of the Tards saying he was on medication and this caused him to snap.
Then you got the other half of the Tards saying he should've been on meds so he wouldnt snap.

He had NO PAST INCIDENTS that would suggest he'd go violent with guns. Just that he was creepy and didnt have friends and wasnt social. If that is the criteria to lock up people, then there should be about 30 Million Americans locked up.
Of course you're gonna get anyone in that town who wants to get interviewed by the media to say in perfect hindsight, they always thought he was weird/dangerous/different/etc. CRAP! If they really had concerns about him, he would've been investigated long ago.
no more drugs

Stop Jerking..

In the very first hours there were neighbors and people known to the subject (previous babbysitter) who stated he had been on meds...

On account of the knowledge that it was said by many that he had aspergers, it is more than plausible to take belief in that he was either on meds, withdrawing, or had a history..

For this reason and the fact that it is known that meds and withdrawal of them can cause suidal and homicidal ideation, it is more than logical to assume that the cause of the rampage was the effects of prescription drugs...

I agree with you on the fact that every second american would be locked up if the criteria was how he had been described... and also re" hindsight..
