For many, Sandy Hook school should be razed

Dec 25, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: New Canaan News-Review

In the wake of the Dec. 14 massacre that left 20 students and six teachers dead, dozens of residents indicated in interviews with the News-Times that the school should remain closed for good.

The killer is gone.

Renovate the school, harden it, deploy armed guards and get on with educating the kids.

Make it an example of how to deal with madness.

Those parents wish their kids not attend the school can go elsewhere. Build strong people.

It's just brick&mortar, after all. Reality is the school building isn't evil. The weapons the killer used are not evil, the evil is gone.

Oh yeah - I'm sure you'd get a majority of voters to agree to creating a new building. Especially during THIS economy and 'love' of the voters for their 'government', both imperial and local.

For every day the military force and power of the State of Connecticut and the Federal Government are used to prevent public access to the unencumbered crime scene, except for the removal of dead victims, the crime scene should be opened to the public, before any demolition or alteration of it. The authorities should be required to prove it is in the same unaltered state it was in at the time of the tragedy via pictures and any other written or other documentation. Any effort to fool or mislead the public by the authorities should result in the immediate jailing of any and all authorities who may have sought to fool, mislead or lie to the public about this horrible event. Do not all the suffering victims deserve any less?

Why all the secrecy here? What is the government of Connecticut and others seeking to hide? We still do not even know why the alleged shooter was there if indeed he committed these horrible acts do we? No pictures of the crime scene have been published. Why? Many contradictions exist. Has the govenment of Connecticut been patterned after Nazi, Germany rather than the open principles of America?

Without more information how does anyone really know what transpired at Sandy Hook almost a month ago? The authorities must open up this secret investigation to the light of day and the light of truth. Only in doing so, can everyone heal and move on from this horrible nightmare.

How does anyone really know what happened at Sandy Hook given all the secrecy by the authorities in the release of information?

http://www.globalresearch.ca/author/james-f-t...

Ask yourself this question: If the authorities do not have something to hide, why have they used the full military force and power of government to prevent citizens from examining the crime scene and evaluating information obtained from any investigation, like what drugs the alleged shooter may have been taking or why he was at the school in the first place? Evidently they do have something to hide. Justice delayed is justice denied.

One of the common problems associated with PTSD is the obtrusive recall of memories that are associated with fearful, emotional experiences.

Some people say they are "haunted" by memories of traumatic experiences which intrude on and disrupt their daily lives. They often can't get the "pictures" of the trauma out of their heads. They may have recurring nightmares, "flashbacks," or they may even relive the trauma as if it was happening in present time.

Tear it down, it triggers memorys and PTSD.

Excellent. Of course tearing it down destroys all evidence of a State operation. Amish school in PA was torn down the very next day! And people still live in denial.

The Sandy Hook School should not be torn down. There should be a special memorial area with a big sign inside the school which would tell of the horrible tradegy, but explain the surviving pupils, surviving teachers, and parents of Sandy Hook shall preserve and continue to have their school.

How so ?

PTSD triggers may be all around you. Even though it may sometimes feel like PTSD symptoms come out-of-the-blue, PTSD symptoms rarely spontaneously occur. Instead, whether you are aware of it not, PTSD symptoms are often triggered or cued by something in our internal (anything that happens within your body, such as thoughts or feelings) or external , like the sight of that school.

Because certain thoughts, feelings, or situations can bring up uncomfortable PTSD symptoms, such as memories of a traumatic event or feelings of being on edge and anxious, one way of coping with these symptoms is by increasing your awareness of these triggers. You can prevent or lessen the impact of certain PTSD symptoms by identifying what specific types of thoughts, feelings, and situations trigger them, and then, take steps to limit the occurrence or impact of those triggers.

Kinds of Triggers
Triggers can fall into two categories: Internal Triggers and External Triggers. Internal triggers are things that you feel or experience inside your body. Internal triggers include thoughts or memories, emotions, and bodily sensations (for example, your heart racing). External triggers are situations, people, or places that you might encounter throughout your day (or things that happen outside your body). Listed below are some common internal and external triggers

Hey mommy I want to go to the mass murder park, really?

First the people must accept the school is NOT evil nor is the land under the school. The weapons Adam Lanza picked to use are not evil.

Adam Lanza was evil and is no longer with us.

The evil is gone.

There are many weapons in the free country called the USA, None of them are evil. There are many schools in the USA, None are evil.

There are people in the USA that are evil and will hurt others with a weapon they choose when they decide to act out and hurt others.

The Sandy Hook school should be renovated with the best security features available and set up for an armed guard station which is defended with bullet proof plastic/glass and have an armed guard defending the kids at all times.

Just like President Obama's kids are protected by many armed guards.

The layout of Sandy Hook school should be completely changed to remove ANY resemblence of the old school and if that costs more than a brand new school then demo the existing school and build a brand new very secure school.

BTW ALL SCHOOLS should be upgraded ASAP to include security to give teachers and kids a chance to protect themselves from any evil person with any kind of weapon.

Simple measures like dead bolts on the inside of classrom doors that are bullet proof etc.

Sallyport entrances on all schools with defensive weapons available to school staff like: mace, tasers, smoke, clubs, etc.
Whatever school staff is comfortable using. If school staff doesn't want weapons then the building gets an Armed Guard.

NEVER AGAIN should school staff be forced to defend kids with nothing but their bodies!!

NEVER!!

I would bet it is torn down to remove all evidence of what really happened there.
