>>25950431 Does he pose that way for photos or is that his neutral expression? It kind of looks like me when I raise my eyes in shock or something. As a schizophrenic he must have always been worried or some shit
That's just one picture He looks fine in some other ones They just wanted to ramp up the "he's weird and autistic" factor to scare the normies so they disseminate that pic most frequently Pretty predatory desu
>>25950431 >>25950727 >>25950755 The look on his face is so unsettling. He was probably abused or something or had a bunch of mental problems. Shooters like elliot or pic related all seemed pretty normal on the outside. I always wondered what went through Adam's head
>>25950918 To get girls you have to participate in society. Elliot didn't really do that But yeah, if he just had a little humility about himself, and some realistic expectations, he could have easily gotten a 6/10 or 7/10.
>>25950866 My point was that they wanted to really accentuate how weird and autistic he was, make him look like an alien and shit, so that normies would be unable to empathize with him. Whether or not he actually was weird and autistic has pretty little to do with my point, what I am saying is that the media specifically intended to paint him in that light, dramatize it and such. Also he was always very anxious in school and social environments and the like so pics taken there will be proportionally more terrifying.
>>25950875 Other photos could be shooped, angles and such, etc. Nose structure doesn't look entirely different to me
>>25950955 His face is whitewashed in other pics and photoshop rendering could make some if it disappear. Also they seem to be fairly low resolution.
>>25951057 >empathize with him. You're right there with him huh? Dude he murdered a bunch of little kids. They didn't have to do anything to make any sane person not empathize with him. Seek therapy. You sound ridiculous.
>>25951111 Well clearly they tried to because they intentionally fish out the most freakish pics they could find.
>You're right there with him huh? I didn't say that, and personal accusations on your part are irrelevant. What I am saying is that distorting his representation would be in the best interest of anyone who would want to maximize the revulsion the public feels from viewing his image.
>>25951218 >maximize the revulsion t HE MURDERED A BUNCH OF LITTLE KIDS. Everyone sane was already repulsed. You can not make a mass toddler murder look any worse than they are. Beside how many pics of this shut in freak do you think there even where?
>>25951397 >HE MURDERED A BUNCH OF LITTLE KIDS Again, not my point My point is that it would still be in their best interest to maximize this revulsion, even if it was already high to begin with
If you saw just a normal looking guy, you'd still be repulsed, yeah, but it's a different feeling from looking at the alien-like dude in OP pic, and you'd draw different conclusions about him, however subtle they may be.
>>25951101 that's not him people's face don't just change. He was way cuter than that, his eyes were big, his face was longer, he was skinnier and his hair was straight. Idk does anyone else think Adam Lanza was kind of a cutie?
>>25951871 >No photo could make it worse Really though? If he looked like a normal guy he would just be a normal guy killing people like all of the other normal guys do But cause he looks like such a freak he's a freak who kills people, and people draw the conclusion that freaks kill people from that It inspires hatred for the weird. Combine that with the hatred for the weird that already exists beforehand and you got a double whammy.
>>25951856 No you're actually right those photos were gotten from fake sources
>>25951929 >If he looked like a normal guy he would just be a normal guy killing people like all of the other normal guys do How crazy are you? Normal people don't shoot up elementary schools. It's the killing little kids part that's repulsive. His looks are arbitrary.
>>25952045 You're argument is crazy. He could look like Zac Effron, and if he shot up an elementary people would still be repulsed. I don't think there are degrees of repulsion.
Plus, he was a shut-in autistic freak. What pics do you think they're are? The photos from his JV soccer team? Jr. Prom. He looks plenty retarded in that candid video of him playing dance dance revolution too.
>>25952107 >I don't think there are degrees of repulsion u wot that's pretty simplistic bro
>He could look like Zac Effron, and if he shot up an elementary people would still be repulsed It would be counterbalanced by his normal appearance, which is generally seen as positive, whereas Adam's abnormal appearance adds to it. I'm not trying to say that people wouldn't be repulsed at all, but it would create conflicting perceptions in the normal person's mind.
I wish he'd left behind a manifesto or something. The weird expressions he made in most of his pics and the sheer cruelty he displayed by shooting up a school full of small children has me asking questions.
>>25952047 Martin was a weird guy >mentally disabled, had the mental age of a 10 year old >found some old lady with money who liked him when he was 19 >lives as a neet for five years >lady dies in a car accident which he probably caused because he'd often grab the steering wheel, he inherits 500,000 aussie dollars >father commits suicide by drowning with Martin's diving weight belt >no one finds either of these deaths suspicious >lives isolated but rich, starts to travel around the world but he's just too weird for people to be friends with him >starts to plan a killing spree >some girl takes a liking to him, likely because of his money >goes on a shooting spree anyways >kills 35 people, 12 of those in fifteen seconds with 17 bullets or something close to it >surrenders, has spent the last 20 years in prison
"I hate how life-apologists say 'Life isn't all suffering. What about the simple pleasures, like eating ice cream?' They always use that example. Even if I didn't recognize the flaws in their assertion, when I think of ice cream, I can only see a repugnant lump of pus crushed out of cows' bloody nipples, who spend their entire lives confined in filth, where they're periodically raped so that they're incessantly pregnant... I always ride the pessimism train down different tracks until it inevitably leads me to contemplating over 500 million years of animals cannibalizing each other. Excuse me for not being thrilled by the extra jimmies on my ice cream cone." -Adam Lanza
>>25950581 my family lived in Sandy Hook for decades. my grandparents' neighbor lost their grandson (used to see him play in their yarx) and and my nephew's former guidance counselor (he has autism) was among the killed.
>>25952844 on top of this, my thesis advisor recently moved away from sandy hook because his kids had lost friends and it was too painful to stay.
>>25952888 we are robots, it's not like we go out and meet people. except for the kid next door to my grandparents' house, all i have are 2nd hand stories from people i trust like my brother, my thesis advisor, etc.
it's easy to believe conspiracy theories when all you have is your own mind for company, but don't mistake your dysfunction for reality.
>>25952426 >was obsessed with mass murder >was obsessed with chimpanzees and even said that he wished he was born as a chimp, or at least born into some kind of hunter-gatherer society >had Asperger's and suffered from severe anxiety, which led to him not being able to attend school and being isolated from his peers >incessantly expressed his hatred for "culture" and how modern-day societal etiquette was "unnatural" and "fake," e.g. marriage >was clearly depressed as fuck, making remarks such as" I'm completely perplexed by the foreign concept of enjoying life."
If my armchair psychology serves me well, my best guess for why he did the shooting was because his disdain for society and his all-encompassing preoccupation with violence eventually collided and ended in tragedy. I don't think he was trying to make some kind of point, I think it was just an elaborate suicide mission.
> I feel like they're gonna attack me when I don't expect it
desu after having two experiences like this last semester I'm pretty paranoid around people now too. I look around a lot when I'm in public and don't like it when people get close to me. I wonder if I look like he does in those pics now too.
>>25954220 Don't tell them anything you don't want to see in your permanent record to be used against you at a later date And whatever you do don't go to a psychiatrist or take any meds they prescribe you, don't mention suicide or thoughts of violence etc as they can use that to stick you in inpatient for "safety reasons" Don't trust anyone in the pseudoscience psych field unless you want to be a human guinea pig desu
>>25953423 His mom really did drop the ball. He had numerous opportunities to be helped but his mother always stood in the way and refused to believe he had a significant problem. In middle school the staff took steps to help Adam and it was clearly working because they reported that he was becoming much more sociable and comfortable and then his mom abruptly withdrew him.
>>25954639 Yep. Also throwing guns in the mix was straight up moronic. The father has more culpability then he accepts too. He hadn't seen Adam for two years before the shooting. He claims that it was because Adam wouldn't see him, but I don't buy that any decent father would let that happen.
>>25950431 I did that once because I kept blinking during pictures. I thought if I opened them wide enough, I could blink, but my eyes wouldn't make it all the way closed before the picture actually happened. I know it's stupid.
>>25954616 And if for any reason something you say gets you carted off, some hospitals allow you to choose physical restraints over tranqs/forced meds, always pick restraints. You don't want to get hooked on their lobotomy skittles man
Cooperate and lie and make shit up with your therapist if it doesn't affect any current issue you're discussing. Good luck if you choose to proceed
>>25954722 The last time Peter saw Adam was in 2010, and I read that Adam cut off contact with him because they had a disagreement on what classes Adam should and shouldn't take at college (because a couple years prior, Adam took courses at a local college but was was too stressed by the workload and failed/dropped a few classes). Peter seemed to be a lot more aware of Adam having issues, but his divorce from Nancy and the location of his job apparently made it difficult for him to intervene in a meaningful way. If you read about Peter's relationship with Adam when he was younger, their relationship seemed much healthier than the relationship Adam had with his mom.
>>25954530 There's no such thing as a "permanent record" unless you're declared a danger to yourself or others. Stop spreading bullshit. I can go into a hospital in any state in the US right now, say I'm suicidal, get stuck in a psych ward, then get out the next day and buy a gun.
>>25956175 it's a thing isn't it? the wide-eyed look is some primal instinct to intimidate. like how people with autism have weird complexes about their feet and like to sneak/tip-toe around because that's our natural instinct as humans, it's just regular people unlearn it since everyone else walks around with their feet flat, but people with autism don't learn from social queues properly
>>25955307 >Additionally, Santucci made approximately 244,391 in cash deposits into his account, and deposited a further 46,514 into his bank account by ATM. In another account, Santucci made deposits of 5,525 and ATM deposits of 12,284
I find this so hard to believe. It's like he had a crime IQ of 60. How can someone who investigates crime for a living be so careless?
>>25952107 >He could look like Zac Effron, and if he shot up an elementary people would still be repulsed. Not at all, remember how people was crazy about one of the slenderman girls because she was cute. And how all girls got wet by that blue eyed guy's mugshot
>>25953250 Not the same guy. Maybe talking about the killers motive and reasoning? Maybe some other un noticed issue being missed do to the derailing? Also how the hell did he not leave his room for 5 years like someone else said?
To be honest everything I've seen about Adam lanza says he was exceptionally high IQ with a little social anxiety and a screwball mom. Isee no reason why he would have committed the crime. I suspect r9k knows this too otherwise they would be worshipping him instead of the half Asian kid.
