What to do with Sandy Hook


Many want to tear it down and build a memorial: newtown-debates-the-fate-of-sandy-hook-elementary-school

Maybe one of the posters from Israel can respond but my experience there, when bus and public bombings happened weekly, was the carnage would be cleaned up, the damage repaired and people would go back to "normal" as quickly as possible; often within hours instead and not days. There weren't piles of flowers and candles and few permanent monuments of any kind to mark the place something happened.

Here in this country when there's a car accident it seems like people need to have a candlelight vigil and put up a cross. Why are we so morose?

Make it like the schools in L.A.... Get out the mop, clean it, give it some spackle and paint and hold class.

Maybe determine exactly what happened there and then make a decision

I have my doubts that Sandy Hook happened... But then I have no doubts that the feds blew the federal building on Oklahoma City...

I am still befuddled that we have not seen the typical CG representations, graphics with details and timelines down to the granular level on this case. Have I been missing all that or what?

There's 20 sets of parents who can't believe Sandy Hook happened either. But it did.

I don't believe that something didn't happen but, I do believe that there is a lack of clarity about what exactly did happen

I was at home and had news on when all this went down, I must admit, sitting there watching it unfold, I started getting confused with the facts as they kept changing as the day went on..... I dont know if it was just a race for news crews to be first to get story out, or something else but it sure got suspicious.
I rather have it all be fake then to think it really happened....just for the childrens sake.

I had a post on this about my family, /We were there shortly after. My wife took some pictures at a memorial site. Its was filled with sad memories. My son works with an engineer in Danbury that had a very close call and it goes on an on. I can't even figure out why the op posted a really stupid post about something ihe had no connects with.

Rc Works and others made some really bad comments. totality out of line.

So I'm sitting here thinking to I really want to be a part of this group? I know it's just a few bad apples but it only takes one or two to wreck every thing. .

Never make decisions when your mad. 20 dead kids and 6 adults and you guys are making what you think are funny troll comments?

Scary part about this there appears to be some mental problems going on because this is not a sane reaction. Totally off the wall.

I'll post tomorrow and make a decision. Right now I'm ashamed to even be a RCer. especially if the moderator don't take a stand.

Tinfoil hats aside, it is interesting we haven't seen any of that. Usually the media is completely tasteless about these things.

It does not look like anything happened, A lot of cars but nowhere seen are kids leaving nor even on the school grounds. Something is fishy here.

More personal attacks?

I guess everything you post about you have "connects" with. Okay, you saw a memorial thousands of other people saw and you know somebody who knows somebody who wasn't a victim. You're right, nobody else should comment about the story - not even when they were commenting about a news story from the New York Times.
