the sandy hook shooting

Me: *talks about school shooters and serial killers as if they are my friends.*
My mom: “Can we talk about something a little more uplifting?”
Me: “This is uplifting.”

S/O to the true crime blogs that work their asses off to make their blogs look nice and presentable but don’t get much recognition.

Sandy Hook truther charged with plotting mass shooting to protect 2nd Amendment from ‘f*ggots’
A Las Vegas conspiracy theorist has been taken into custody and charged with making terrorist threats after posting a disturbing YouTube video threatening to slaughter “gays, faggots, lesbians and satanists,” reports KTNV.

Bryce Cuellar, 24, was arrested by Las Vegas police after they were notified by Interpol in July about Cuellar’s video. In the video, Cuellar stated that he is tired of the government trying to take away his First and Second Amendment rights and planned to go on a killing spree.

Calling himself a “Christian warrior,” Cuellar bragged that he would use his weapons as the Founding Fathers intended, killing,” gays, faggots, lesbians and satanists.”

New Sandy Hook School opens on site of Newtown shooting

Nearly four years after tragedy struck Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., the school is opening its doors to students again. But those doors, like the rest of the building, look a little different today than they did in 2012, when a shooting rampage killed 20 first-graders and six educators.

A new elementary school opened Monday in Newtown, replacing the Sandy Hook school that was torn down after the shooting. The replacement facility, which cost $50 million to build, stands on the same property as the old school, but bears little resemblance to its predecessor. The new building features three courtyards, study spaces designed to look like treehouses, and a moat-like rain garden, and was inspired by the “regenerative, restorative and healing elements of nature,” according to the project website. 

Newtown residents voted to tear down the old school and construct a new one after the 2012 shooting.

“They don’t want to go back, and vehemently so. For some, it was just too overwhelming to go into that space again without becoming unhinged,” local psychiatrist John Woodall told NPR in 2013. “You can’t ask people to bear something that is, for them, unbearable.”

As part of the design process, architecture firm Svigals and Partners spent months talking to people in the community, making its construction a collaborative process. 

“They were very passionately protective,” said project manager Julia McFadden to local radio station WSHU. “They really communicated heartfelt feelings about wanting the whole community to come together and recreate the school in a way the town could reconnect to it. Cause they really had their heart ripped out.”

Roughly 70 out of the 390 students returning to Sandy Hook this year attended the old school at the time of the shooting, school officials said. About half were in the building at the time, though none witnessed the shootings. Around 60 percent of the faculty has returned with them. 

School officials say they are meeting with the families of the shooting victims to discuss how best to remember the victims at the school. A more overt memorial will be built in another part of town, as the school will be geared more toward the future than the past. 

“That is what a school should be,” said Melisa Horan, whose son attended the old Sandy Hook before the shooting, to the Associated Press. “The excitement of learning and seeing all the new stuff.”

“You’re so disgusting and gross for being interested in serial killers!”

Am I?

Here are just a few things I’ve learned from being apart of the true crime community:

1. I know what kind of behavior to watch out when it comes to approaching someone or trusting someone.

2. For the longest time, society has brainwashed me into thinking serial killers weren’t human, when honestly.. They are the ones I can relate to the most when it comes to feelings.

3. The true crime community family are some of the most non-judgemental people I’ve ever ran into.

In the end, I have learned so much from being apart of the true crime community. I discovered another part of me that I will never regret being a part of.

Jaded

With the world like it is now, it can be easy to grow cold.

So cold to the negativity of what happens, that you learn to freeze things.

You start off small, freeze your thoughts so they don’t go too drastic for your liking.

Before they start causing personal attacks on your psyche.

To keep you safe.

Safe.

It’s better to be safe than sorry, right?

Is that why they instill the concept that anything bad can happen to you at any moment and you’ll have to either let it eat you alive or grow too cold for it to do so?

Is that why there is a constant threat that there is going TO BE A BAD MAN AT THAT DOOR SO WE HAVE TO RUN AND HIDE RIGHT NOW?

Because that’s not entirely unlikely.

As of June 8th, 2015 there had been 126 school shootings since Sandy Hook. 

Who’s to say that ours isn’t next?

But I don’t think they play that stuff on the news anymore.

The public knows the world is a bad place so why report on a bad thing that happens so often?

They gotta find new bad stuff to report about.

They’re in a constant search to find bad stuff to report on because nowadays we get jaded quickly.

Jaded.

We grow cold as stone and the only way to undo the damage is to be cast out into molten magma of positivity to warm our cold hearts again.

To melt the crystals of bullying scars, of lost one’s mourning, of too much work to be done and not enough time to do it, of all nighters crying to yourself because you can’t sleep without knowing that you’re going to be ok because you’re not quite sure that that’s the case.

But you should be okay.

You’re protecting yourself by using these crystals of jade to block out the negativity.

All you’re sacrificing is everything else.

23. Name three true crime facts you find most interesting

1)The guns used by Adam Lanza to commit the shooting in Sandy Hook were gifts. His mom offered him a bushmaster for this 18th birthday. He got a glock 10mm for Christmas. He would later use the bushmaster at sandy hook for the shooting and the glock to kill himself.//
2)Peter Scully abused and tortured many children, posting the videos online. He killed 1child.His youngest victim is 18 months old and is still alive.//
3)Armin Meiwes slaughtered and ate Bernd Jürgen Brandes. Since then he’s in jail and became a vegetarian.

To be honest, I have nothing against guns. I may someday own one, but I do believe the US can do much, much better than the system we have now. Murder by guns has decreased yet mass shootings have increased. Too many people have been killed and nothing has been done and that really has to change. I mean, we don’t even have a digitized system of gun owners because of the NRA. I understand owning a gun is an American right and I understand that America is a gun culture, but this isn’t about that. We need a system that could have prevented Sandy Hook, Columbine, The Colorado Movie Theatre Shooting, The Carolina Church Shooting, Virgina Tech, Pulse and so much more.
