Does anyone else find it interesting, to say the least, that there were reports of an altercation which occurred between the shooter and four employees, three of whom are now deceased, the day before the shooting.

Why was this altercation not quickly and appropriately reported to authorities? What is the school policy regarding hostile visitors who create disturbances or "altercations" on school property? There should have been an immediate report made to local authorities and a full investigation. Why did they choose to protect Adam Lanza from the authorities but not the students and faculty?

In my opinion, the attorney of the $100,000,000 lawsuit should not have been backed down so easily. The school failed to follow prudent policy to protect more than 600 innocent lives by failing to pick up the telephone to report the disturbance to the police if, in fact, a prior altercation occurred.

Something stinks in Newtown.

Dear More lawsuits,

Do you really believe that an altercation always warrants police activity?

On account there wasnt any police involvement suggests to me that there were no threats uttered, along with the suggestion that people who knew him, werent scared of him, and felt he posed no threat..

Doesnt this suggest to you that he was getting sicker?

Aspergers is not progressive... in fact it is said to become better with age ..more manageable..

The people who knew him had no way to predict his upcoming behavior because the people aro9und him were uneducated as to the serious threat that mind altering legal drugs pose. Not the person, but what the person is medicating with.

This alleged altercation where no one worried or did anything (his mther included) has to suggest that he was never looked at as a violent person who needed to be feared.

Especially knowing that the mother was not secretive about her gun collection. She told everyone. The school employees allegedly involved in an altercation, likely knew of theis and apparenty still didnt fear him, or they would have involved the local authorities and they didnt..

This was a drug induced massacre like all the other ones... look them up on google.. sadly there are dozens which begs the question, how many violent acts occur where we dont get to know that the person was taking these drugs..(I still suspect the portland mall shooter was likely on some meds starting from when he was little and could have stopped them altogther as his actions were not consistent with the person he had been described to be )

BINGO-THIS and the destroyed computer are as important as anything that went on near the shooting. Also this "altercation" didn't or does not officially exist because it was never reported.

This was early reporting.

But this altercation if true contradicts alot about what we supposedly know about the child killer.

-For an introverted kid that shouldn't have been left alone he showed the ability to drive a car and go confront another person. I thought Aspergers patients were actually less likely to be violent.

-What business does any adult have going to a school of seven year olds during the school day?

-A spouse or girl friend fight with signifigant other?-This could be a possible motive for a second and even unassociated shooter.

-What would Lanza have complained about at the school?

(This is where it can get perverse. Did the child killer Lanza have an affair with a staff member?-Wouldn't be the first time a female teacher 'dated' an younger man. Also in combination with the destroyed computer-somekind of porn or pedophile ring/activity?)

But several weeks later this altercation is being treated like it didn't happen.
