Country singer Tim McGraw sells out. Headlines Sandy Hook gun control concert

I’m not a fan of country music, but even I have heard of Tim McGraw, husband of another country music megastar Faith Hill.

AWR Hawkins reports for Breitbart that on July 17, 2015, Tim McGraw will headline a concert fundraiser in Connecticut for a gun control group called Sandy Hook Promise.

McGraw’s “A Concert For Sandy Hook Promise” will also feature country singers Billy Currington and Chase Bryant.

Tim McGrawTim McGraw in 2003. McGraw had never served in the U.S. military, so why is he in this faux military garb?

Sandy Hook Promise is a vehicle through which various alleged family members of alleged Sandy Hook victims have joined to push gun control until it passes. One of the group’s members is Newtown father Mark Bearden, who has pledged to “dedicate the rest of his life” to pursuing gun control.

McGraw is quoted by NBC Connecticut as saying:

Out of this tragedy a group was formed that made a promise to honor the lives lost and turn it into a moment of transformation. Sandy Hook Promise teaches that we can do something to protect our children from gun violence. I want to be a part of that promise – as a father and as a friend.

According to Wikipedia, McGraw is a Democrat and has stated that he would like to run for public office in the future, possibly for Senate or Governor of Tennessee, his home state. In the same interview, he praised Bill Clinton and said that he had supported Barack Obama for president in 2008.

Breitbart reporter AWR Hawkins points out that “It should be noted that there was 100 percent gun control at Sandy Hook Elementary on December 14, 2012. No guns were allowed, period. You can’t have more gun than that. Moreover, there were laws against stealing guns and possessing stolen guns as well. But none of these laws stopped or even dissuaded Adam Lanza.”

AWR Hawkins should also know that all of that is quite beside the point because no one died at that school on Dec. 14, 2012, perhaps not even Adam Lanza himself, who supposedly shot himself in the head minutes before police and first responders arrived at the school that morning. If you doubt that, ask the State of Connecticut why the government continues to refuse to release Lanza’s and his 21 victims’ death certificates — documents that are deemed public record, i.e., accessible to the public, except in the case of Lanza and his alleged victims.

For all the other many, many reasons why many sane people, including Professors James Tracy and Jim Fetzer, believe the Sandy Hook massacre is a gigantic, elaborate false-flag fraud in the interest of gun control, go to our “Sandy Hook Massacre” page.

I dare you.

Sandy Hook families sue Lanza estate, as Newtown demolishes the Lanza home

Americans are notorious for our litigiousness. One of the many curiosities of Sandy Hook is that, unlike other school shootings, the families of the alleged victims of alleged killer Adam Lanza had not filed lawsuits. (See my post of March 29, 2014, “Why are there no Sandy Hook lawsuits?”) Two long years after the alleged massacre, however, some of them are suing, although each victim family has already received MILLIONS of dollars in donations from individual Facebook sites, organized Sandy Hook charities like United Way, and the $11.6 million Sandy Hook School Support Fund. Some of those Facebook and charity sites, curiously, had been created before the alleged massacre, that is, before the alleged victims actually became victims. See:

Lawsuit #1

On Dec. 14, 2014, two years to the day after the alleged school shooting, the families of 9 of Lanza’s 26 victims, as well as a teacher who was wounded, filed a negligence and wrongful death lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor and seller of the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that Lanza allegedly had used to kill 20 first-graders and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in less than 5 minutes — a remarkable feat for a young man who reportedly had Asperger Syndrome, a form of autism that often results in impaired motor skills and coordination.

Note: By the way, have you ever wondered why Adam Lanza, described as a “genius” with computers by media reports and acquaintances, left no online footprints? — no email, no comments on blogs or news sites, no participation in online video games, although he was a member of a high school technology club that held LAN (local area network) parties, in which students would gather at a member’s home, hook up their computers into a small network and play games. The FBI claims that Adam had smashed his computer’s hard drive, but Adam could not have scrubbed every trace of his online footprints as well.

Then, there’s the curious matter of the Social Security Death Index having Adam’s date-of-death as Dec. 13, 2012, one day before he shot himself after killing 27 people. To this day, despite Freedom of Information Act requests, the State of Connecticut has refused to make public his death certificate, although death certificates are a matter of public record.

The lawsuit claims that the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle should not have been made publicly available because it was designed for military use and is unsuited for hunting or home defense, and that its manufacturer, Bushmaster, is clearly aware that the rifle has become the weapon of choice for mass shootings.

For the names of the plaintiffs, see “Sandy Hook families sue Bushmaster gun manufacturer”.

Lawsuit #2

Then, on Jan. 12, 2015, the parents of Jesse Lewis and Noah Pozner, who are also the plaintiffs in Lawsuit #1, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the town of Newtown and its board of education.

Note: Noah is the same Noah Pozner whose image is among posters of the victims of a school shooting in Peshawar, Pakistan, seen in a BBC news video. Curiously, the BBC seems disinterested in why Noah died a second time, nor is Noah’s dad Lenny Pozner protesting against the inclusion of his son’s image among the Peshawar dead. This is the same Lenny Pozner who is waging a relentless campaign, prevailing on YouTube to take down videos uncovering the Sandy Hook hoax, and harassing bloggers like Timothy Hunter, a college kid, into silence. See also “The curious parents of Sandy Hook child victim Noah Pozner.”

BBC Noah

The lawsuit against Newtown and its board of education claims that security measures at the school allowed the attack to happen — that SHES had security policies and procedures in place that teachers weren’t able to follow on the day of the killings, including:

  • Classroom doors could only be locked from the outside with keys, leaving teachers vulnerable to intruders.
  • The front of the school didn’t have security glass to protect against gunshots.
  • A teacher in one of the two classrooms where students were killed was a substitute, didn’t have a key and didn’t receive training on the security protocols. (Daily Mail)

Lawsuits #3

On March 14, 2015, The Hartford Courant reports that in late January, two separate lawsuits were filed by the families of eight Sandy Hook victims against the estate of Nancy Lanza — Adam’s mother whom he allegedly had killed before he allegedly drove to the school on the morning of Dec. 14, 2012. The lawsuits claim that Nancy carelessly allowed her son access to the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle that he allegedly used in the alleged massacre:

  1. The plaintiffs of one lawsuit consist of the families of three child victims (Benjamin Wheeler, Dylan Hockley, Daniel Barden) and four adult victims (Rachel D’Avino, Mary Scherlach, Victoria Soto and Lauren Rousseau), as well as two teachers who were injured (Natalie Hammond and Deborah Pisani). Their lawsuit was filed by Bridgeport attorney Joshua Koskoff.
  2. The second lawsuit was filed by the family of child victim James Mattioli. The lawyer is Angelo Ziotas of Stamford.
The Lanza home at 36 Yogananda St.

The Lanza home at 36 Yogananda St.

Stamford attorney Samuel Starks, the administrator of Nancy Lanza’s estate, is named as the defendant. Starks estimates the estate is worth about $64,000, but attorneys have said Nancy also had as much as $1 million of insurance on her home that the plaintiffs could seek. Nancy’s estate is worth only $64,000? Her house at 36 Yogananda St., in an affluent section of Newtown, was assessed at $523,000 at one point, according to The Courant.

Curiously, Vision Government Solutions had the ownership history for 36 Yogananda as:

  • Sold to Estate of Nancy J. Lanza on 2/1/2013 for $0
  • Sold to Nancy Lanza on 2/8/2011 for $0

See “The strange purchase date and price of Sandy Hook homes.”

The last time I checked, the ownership of the house had reverted to Ryan Lanza, Adam’s older brother. But The Courant says that “The house was donated to the town [Newtown] by a New Jersey bank that took over the mortgage that Nancy Lanza had on the property.” In January, the city of Newtown voted to demolish the Lanza home, just as the city had also demolished Sandy Hook Elementary School, allegedly for asbestos contamination, with all the construction workers of Consigli Construction sworn to secrecy by signing confidentiality agreements forbidding public discussion of the site, photographs or disclosure of any information about the building.

Note: Newtown had known about Sandy Hook Elementary School’s asbestos and other environmental contaminants for years, which — together with other evidence — points to the school having already been abandoned long before the alleged massacre. See “Was Sandy Hook Elementary School already abandoned before the massacre?

Consigli is the Italian word for advice. Mafia dons or bosses have personal counselors called consiglier.

Needless to say, demolishing the school and the Lanza house is also a neat way to destroy evidence. Defendants in the aforementioned Sandy Hook lawsuits should take note!

Citizen speaks out on Sandy Hook hoax at Connecticut State committee hearing

The State of Connecticut’s Public Safety and Security Committee (PSSC) is a joint standing committee of the Connecticut General Assembly and contains members of the Senate and the House. In the Connecticut Legislature, there are no separate chamber committees.

PSSC is charged with matters relating to homeland security, the Department of Public Safety, including state police, state organized task force on crime, municipal police training, fire marshals, the fire safety code and the state building code, civil preparedness and legalized gambling, and military and veterans’ affairs, except veterans’ pensions.

The Public Safety and Security Committee of 2015 has 15 Democratic members and 10 Republican members. The Chair of the committee is Sen. Timothy Larson, Democrat, who is also the General Assembly’s Majority Whip. For the names of the other 24 committee members, go here.

Connecticut Public Safety & Security Committee

On March 3, 2015, at a public hearing of the Public Safety and Security Committee on SB 1011: An Act Concerning the Training of Security Personnel, a private citizen named Maureen Crowley boldly spoke out on the Sandy Hook fraud.

Note: The hearing was held in Room 1C, Legislative Office Building, Hartford, CT.

Maureen Crowley

Maureen Crowley

Below is the transcript I took of Crowley’s testimony:

Thank you, all, for allowing me to be here today.

My name is Maureen Crowley. I was born in New Britain, the city in which my great grandfather James Christopher Crowley founded the Crowley Brothers Paint Company in 1885. We then moved to Plainville when I was a toddler, moved back to New Britian when I was in the 6th grade. I attended St. Francis of Assisi Junior High where Sister Miriam Patrise taught me “When you’re not sure of the right thing to do, the right thing is usually the hard thing to do.”

It’s hard for me to speak here today, to speak — an aging baby boomer — would have been easier to sit home. But the truth never comes easily. It comes with dues for those who choose to speak it. The truth is often not palatable or pristine, but it is simple. Simple, but far from easy.

Security matters indeed, of course it does. Safety. Based on the events in Newtown, Connecticut, December 14, 2012 — not December 13, 2012, the day which was confirmed by [search engine] Bing itself, that the interview with principal Dawn Hochsprung was cached. Not December 13, the day that the September 2013 FBI Report says that the “shooting” occurred. This was before the other report, Uniform Crime Reporting of the FBI, infamously declared no murders in Newtown in 2012. Not December 13, the day that the Social Security Death Index proclaimed was the day that Mr. Fictional himself, “Adam Lanza,” left this world. There’s even a report from the committee on the psychiatric dimensions of disaster that not only has the date of this event wrong, they have the day of the week wrong. It was NOT on, December 12 was not a Tuesday. December 11 was a Tuesday. In fact, December 11 was the day when United Way started soliciting funds.

The list of pre-knowledge — confirmed, issued, and divulged — is long. How could this be if it were a real shooting, done by a 112-pound young man, standing a full 6 feet tall, wearing a size 8½ shoe, after he neatly made his bed and washed the New Hampshire trip dirt off his mom’s car, and shot 26 people?

No. [Crowley shakes her head]

I was, as some of you here are now, I believed every word out of [CNN anchor] Anderson Cooper’s mouth that day. But once the persecution of Wolfgang Halbig began, I wanted to ask why the Newtown Police would send law enforcement into his home in Florida if they did not have something to hide.

This is serious! This is a non-event that has turned the culture of the state of Connecticut and the culture of the United States of America upside down. Mental health vulturism. Drills in which 3rd-graders are forced to look down the barrel of a gun. And even state monitoring of Connecticut homeschooling, and even a president that wants to war on bullets.

I reject the official narrative of Sandy Hook. I reject the lies. I’m suspicious of the upwards of $500 million raised through a plethora of donation websites with zero ISUC scrutiny, zero money-laundering scrutiny, zero United Way …

At this point, Timothy Larson, the chairman of the Public Safety and Security Committee, interrupts Crowley and orders her to “wrap it up.”

Public Safety & Security Committee chair Timothy Larson

Maureen Crowley continues:

We the people are not as stupid as the people in this room think we are.

I invite you to at least watch the video, “We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook.” Again, the name of the video is “We Need to Talk About Sandy Hook.” You’ll find it well thought-out, fact based, zero speculation, and interesting.

I hope you’ll remember my words today, unlike the ten members of the Connecticut State Police who could not remember how they entered the non-commissioned, non-operating Sandy Hook Elementary School that day! You think broken glass would be memorable, at a school that boasted 34 classrooms when it was K through 5, but no mass evacuation captured on a single police dash cam.

Connecticut — the state which I volunteer to teach piano in the prison systems. The state that I graduated from with a Bachelor’s degree from Central Connecticut State University. Connecticut — the state that was nothing but good to me. And I seek to return the favor by speaking the truth. If they don’t like hearing the nickname “Corrupticut,” then neither should any of you.

Sredzinski: “Thank you for your testimony. Any further questions? Thank you very much.”

Watch Maureen Crowley’s testimony for yourself before Lenny Pozner, father of alleged Sandy Hook child victim Noah Pozner (who died a second time in Peshawar, Pakistan), prevails on YouTube to scrub this video:

Thank you, Maureen Crowley.

Thank you for speaking out.

And may God bless and keep you safe from all harm, brave lady.

Sandy Hook: ABC Nightly News had Adam Lanza among its “cast” 2 days before massacre

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances….”

-William Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII

Sandy Hoax

The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) is an online database of information related to films, television programs, and video games, including cast, production crew, fictional characters, biographies, plot summaries, and reviews. Actors and crew can post their own résumé and upload photos of themselves for a yearly fee. U.S. users can also view over 6,000 movies and television shows from CBS, Sony, and various independent film makers.

In 1998, IMDb became a subsidiary of Amazon.com. As of January 18, 2015, IMDb had 3,156,631 titles (includes episodes) and 6,329,543 personalities in its database, as well as 58 million registered users and is an Alexa Top 50 site.

The Cambridge Dictionary defines the noun “cast” as “all the actors in a movie, play, or show.” 

It is curious, to say the least, that IMDb has a listing for an episode of ABC World News Tonight which has among its “cast” Adam Lanza — the alleged mass murderer of 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012 — as well as several Sandy Hook teachers and parents.

More curious still, the episode is identified as airing on Dec. 12, 2012, two days before the massacre.

Here’s a screenshot I took of the IMDb page which shows the date (2/11/2015) and time (4 PM) when I accessed it — in case IMDb scrubs the page — followed by a description.

Sandy Hook: The boys who were evacuated TWICE

Among the many curious things about the Sandy Hook school massacre is the phenomenon of doppelgängers.

There are those who say that some of the school children allegedly killed by Adam Lanza miraculously appeared in the Sandy Hook children’s choir months later, not just alive but looking 2-3 years older.

Then there is 6-year-old Noah Pozner who managed to achieve the phenomenal feat of being killed twice — first at Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, Connecticut on Dec. 14, 2012; the second time two years two days later at the Army Public School half a world away in Peshawar, Pakistan on December 16, 2014. (See “Dead again: Sandy Hook child victim Noah Pozner also killed in Pakistan Taliban shooting!”)

Now, thanks to the sharp eyes of FOTM reader who calls himself (with tongue firmly in cheek) Barry Soetoro, Esq., we’ve found two more doppelgängers. They are two boys, presumably students at SHES who, strangely, were evacuated twice from the school on that fateful day in 2012.

One of the many curiosities about Sandy Hook is the dearth of images of children being evacuated from SHES on the morning of Dec. 14, 2012. SHES children were estimated to number about 600, but the dash cam videos from three police cars parked in front of the school that morning showed no children being evacuated.  (See “Sandy Hook hoax: Where were the 100s of students being evacuated?”)

Instead, only two photos of SHES children being evacuated had been made available to the American people, both taken by local newspaper Newtown Bee reporter Shannon Hicks, who claimed she had taken the photos at around 10 AM on Dec. 14, 2012, after police had entered the school to find Lanza supposedly dead by his own hands after killing 20 first-graders and 6 adults.

Here are the two photos (please make note of the green SUV in both pics):

Sandy Hook evacuationConnecticut School Shooting

The two photos show two different groups of students being evacuated, right?

Are you sure? Look again.

Notice the blond boy in a navy top and blue jeans at the head of the line in the first picture? Let’s call him Boy #1. Can you spot him in the second picture?

See the smaller shorter boy in a grey top and blue jeans at the end of the line in the first picture? Let’s call him Boy #2. Can you spot him in the second picture?

I’ve cropped the two pictures to better show the students, and arrayed one on top of the other so that you can compare the two. (Click image to enlarge)

Sandy Hook evacuation cropped

You might say, “Ha! The children probably moved around while they were being evacuated, so that Boy #1 fell behind and went from being first in line to the back.”

But wait!

How could the two boys shift their positions in the line so quickly?

See the green SUV in the two pics?

The SUV is the key. There is simply no way for the two boys to have so quickly changed their positions in the lineup, not to mention the other kids in the two photos are entirely different. All of which point to the two photos as being of two different groups of students (except for boys #1 and #2) being evacuated.

That leaves only one explanation: Boy #1 and Boy #2 were evacuated TWICE. Now why would they do that?

Will wonders ever cease. muttley

There are other reasons to question the authenticity of Hicks’ photos, which most likely had been taken in a school drill, instead of on the day of the alleged massacre. See Professor Jim Fetzer’s “Sent worldwide, Shannon Hick’s ‘iconic’ Sandy Hook photo was faked“.

Sandy Hoax: Forensic evidence of grey powder from shotgun’s breaching round

A breaching round or slug-shot is a shotgun shell specially made for the purposes of door breaching. Breaching rounds are designed to destroy door deadbolts, locks and hinges without risking lives, and are used by military and SWAT teams to quickly force entry into a locked room. Breaching rounds are frangible, i.e., they break up into fragments, and are made of a dense sintered material, often metal powder in a binder such as wax, which can destroy a lock then immediately disperse.

That means after a shotgun has fired a breaching round, it should leave a residue of metal powder.

In a video uploaded to YouTube by “Barry Soetoro,” it is claimed exactly that metal powder residue can be seen surrounding bullet holes left on a wooden magazine rack in the foyer of Sandy Hook Elementary School. The rack was right next to a large glass window that the FBI claimed Adam Lanza had shot and shattered with his rifle on the morning of December 14, 2012, to gain entrance into the school.

The photos below are from the State of Connecticut’s Final Report on Sandy Hook published on Nov. 25, 2013. I added the words “magazine rack” and arrow, colored red.

SH13

Outside view of shattered glass window

Sandy Hook shattered glass

Inside view of shattered glass window and wooden magazine rack on left

The State of Connecticut’s Final Report states that “On the morning of December 14, 2012, the shooter [Adam Lanza], age 20, heavily armed, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES) in Newtown, where he shot his way into the locked school building with a Bushmaster Model XM15-E2S rifle.”

The video below maintains that a close-up of the magazine rack shows grey powder around the bullet holes which is consistent with the metal powder residue left by the breaching rounds from a shotgun. But Lanza didn’t use a shotgun. Instead, a shotgun was found in the trunk of his car by police hours after the alleged massacre. This means that:

  1. Lanza didn’t gain entry into the school by firing at and shattering the glass window.
  2. The window instead was shattered by a shotgun using breaching rounds, most likely by the police or the FBI.

A reader named ABSMOVER of a Sept. 23, 2014 article by the Newtown Post Examiner debunking Sandy Hook hoaxers, wrote a comment stating what video-maker “Barry Soetoro” says about the powder residue. This is the response ABSMOVER received from Newtown Post Examiner:

A breaching round leaves black powder, not blue-ish gray and breaching rounds are used up close for locks and doors. That tiny little hole was consistent with a .223 and certainly not a slug.

Note that in their response, Newtown Post Examiner chose to fixate on the color of the powder, instead of address the fact that only a shotgun’s breaching rounds, not a rifle, would leave powder residue. I wrote a comment on the Newtown Post Examiner stating precisely this. 15 hours later, my comment is still “awaiting moderation.” This is what I wrote:

I find it curious that you are nitpicking about the color of the powder but chose to ignore why a Bushmaster XM15-E2S rifle, which the State of Connecticut’s Final Report on Sandy Hook claims was used by Adam Lanza to blast his way into the school, would leave powder residue on a magazine rack.

I have no familiarity with shotguns, breaching rounds and the color of their powder residue. If you have knowledge, please share your knowledge and opinion with us!

Separated at Birth: Sandy Hook coroner & Pennsylvania school stabbing doctor

On April 9, 2014, a mass stabbing and slashing incident took place at Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.

At around 7:13 a.m., 16-year-old Alex Hribal, a student at the school, wearing all-black clothing and armed with a pair of 8-inch kitchen knives, stabbed and slashed students in the first-floor science hallway, just minutes before the start of school. All told, 21 people were injured, including Hribal, who was taken into custody by police and charged as an adult with attempted homicide and aggravated assault.

In the video below, Christoph R. Kaufmann, M.D., Director of the Trauma Center at Forbes Regional Hospital in Monroeville, PA, spoke on the Franklin school stabbings. Dr. Kaufmann has 18 publications, the first of which — a co-authored article in the journal Current Surgery —  was published in 1987.

But wait!

Where have we seen and heard Dr. Chris Kaufmann before?

At Sandy Hook!

Below is a video of H. Wayne Carver, M.D., 61, the chief medical examiner of the State of Connecticut, at a press conference on December 15, 2012, a day after alleged lone gunman Adam Lanza allegedly shot to death, first his mom Nancy, then 20 kids and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Note also the inappropriate smiles and grins of the state trooper with a moustache second to the left of Dr. Carver (or on the far right from our perspective), at the 1:46, 2:18, 3:07, 4:03, 5:15, 6:17, 6:32, 7:15, 7:46 (big grin), 8:41, 8:45, 9:16, 9:18, 9:35, and 11:52 marks in the video above.

What was so funny?

Psychologists call the trooper’s smiles “micro expressions” — flashes of facial expressions that are very telling. Especially curious is the trooper’s teeth-baring grin at the 8:41 mark. Pamela Meyer, author of the book, LieSpotting: Proven Techniques to Detect Deceptionwould call that grin “duping delight” — smiling with delight at getting away with a terrible crime. (See “How to Spot a Liar” for more.)

FOTM reader Barry Soetoro, Esq., fashioned the pic below, comparing Dr. Chris Kaufmann with Dr. Wayne Carver. Note especially their similar vertical frown lines between their eyebrows, and the similar dark patch of hair in the middle of their white moustaches.

4 dr chris kauffman - franklin school shooting

What’s the statistical probability that two men would look and sound so alike, are of approximately the same age, and are both medical doctors attending to the dead and injured of traumatic mass shooting/stabbing events?

I think any statistician would say the probability is infinitesimally small.

Curiously, on Feb. 25, 2011, about 10 months before the Sandy Hook school massacre, Dr. Carver wrote a letter to the Judiciary Committee of the State of Connecticut’s General Assembly, asking that Connecticut State law be changed to allow the State Medical Examiner’s Office to refuse to release autopsy reports on minors. He threatened to quit if they didn’t do it. The state legislature passed the legislation he requested, Bill 1054, and he withdrew his resignation.

Bill 1054 prevents the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner “from unilaterally disclosing autopsy reports on pediatric homicides to the general public.” Below is a composite of screenshots I took of Carver’s letter, beginning at the 3.46 mark from the video that follows the letter.

Click letter to enlarge

Carver letter1Carver letter2a

5 months after the Sandy Hook massacre on May 23, 2013, The Courant reported that Dr. Carver, 61, announced his retirement. Carver, who always joked he was aptly named for the job, had worked at Connecticut’s coroner’s office since July 1, 1982, and as the state’s chief medical examiner since March 1989, with a salary of $303,433. Carver officially retired as of May 1 but was still working on a 120-day contract to help with the transition and complete his cases. Carver had already put in for retirement before the Dec. 14 shooting. He said he had been suffering from health issues in 2012 and only returned to work days before the massacre. Carver said the Newtown crime scene was by far the worst of his career.
