Media has been retracting following his claims:

Put another tragedy up on the board for the gun-grabbers. They should own this one.

Please note how these things all take place in "Gun-Free Zones".

It's Hunting 101, you go where the prey is most vulnerable.

I was wrong; HS was right. Looks like Lanza is a beta alright. There should seriously be a code against blowing up and killing young school children.

Embarrassing year for while males..

Random crimes are the worst crimes, media is never going to let them live this down.. At least you can avoid black people, but how could you avoid this?

There has been some talk that this is not the facebook page of the killer... I would be carefull spreading such links yet...

[HS: It's clearly the facebook page of the person described at all major news sources. Unless they gave us a wrong name.]

Either that's the wrong page or his ghost is still updating the profile...

He does look beta; if you look at his profile pic from 2006, he is a skinny wimpy looking teenager. But his dress and style seem pretty SWPL to me. And he's fairly good looking to.

Schizophrenia often hits in a person's 20s - perhaps a mental disorder?

Why? Nothing seems more alpha than ensuring another mans genes don't pass on, it's a shame it got to this point though.

Oh, for Christ's sakes. Rage, whether Beta-male or otherwise, might in some ***extreme*** cases result in the killing of one's parents. But not a class full of kindergarten children.

LOL It wasn't him, poor guy..

"Beta male" may have had a girlfriend. Also, younger brother being held as possible second shooter: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/ap-source-20-year-old-suspect-had-ties-school

Looks like the shooter's name was Adam Lanza. Not sure if Ryan is related.

HS and everyone else,

Rifleman on the other comment thread is right. You should really learn the diff. between beta males and omega males. Beta males are just a notch below alphas. They are actually high in the pecking order.

I wonder if little bro didn't have gay panic fears, amongst all his other failures real & perceived. Stats show that a significant portion of gay men are younger brothers.

What's your take on gun control HS? I'd rather Obama spend his political capital elsewhere, guns don't overly concern me.

The Hartford Courant seems to have the most info. http://courant.com

Guy's 24 - just the age where schizophrenia begins to manifest. Mom lives in CT, dad in NJ - how long have they been divorced? He kills both mom and dad. Younger brother is in on it - enough that he doesn't do anything to stop it, and may have helped.

Some kids get *really* fucked up by divorce.

@Credo in Unum Deum: So you criticize people who are pro gun control because they will probably politicize the event and then you actually politicize the event for anti gun control purposes. Am I following your post correctly?

I couldn't agree more though. We definitely need to start training elementary schoolers in combat and stop selecting elementary teachers for stupid and useless traits like caring about and actually enjoying children and start hiring ex marine drill sargeants.

@Anthony - 24 is well after the age when schizophrenia begins to manifest. The shooter is (or was) 20.

"He kills both mom and dad. Younger brother is in on it "

He WAS the younger brother.

Maybe you should save the commentary till you actually get some facts?

Beta male has a nice ring to it. Moreover it's people like you should learn the difference. Omega males are guys who can't even maintain jobs. Most shooters are not unemployed. Frequently they're "normal" but lack maybe in one or two areas of life. An omega is someone who's obese, unemployed, or with a long history of dysfunction. Rifleman and TUJ need to STFU.

Check your local your sex offender registry for omega males/females. That's what they really look like. People like that are few. Mass shooters are betas albeit the lower end of beta.

jayne, don't be an asshole. The story has updated; at the time I read it, Ryan (24) had been identified as the shooter, and Adam (20) was being taken in for questioning. Getting those things backwards doesn't affect my point, and in fact, strengthens it. (Schiz may manifest as late as 24/25, but almost never later than 25. The fact that it was the 20-yo brother, not the 24-yo, makes undetected schiz *more* likely.)

You're admittedly a prole hispanic. We're glad you generally agree with the worldview, but please shut up.

Alpha males are top 20% of men, as defined by attractiveness -- whether physical, status, or personality -- to women. Beta males are the fat part of the bell curve -- 60% of men. Omega males are the bottom 20% who get little to no play from women. Your typical brony is an omega male.

There are gradations between these three major male archetypes. Get with the program people, this isn't rocket science.

Meanwhile, news is reporting that Adam Lanza has (had) a girlfriend. That would suggest a possible beta or greater beta male who was attractive to girls but had some mental disorder which caused him to snap, like the aurora CO shooter.

The school system could really benefit from that honestly. The soft nature of women is making kids unprepared for reality.

Maybe to be polite, remove the link to the facebook.

So which one of you decided to hide behind an anonymous facade to post this? If you can't even confront someone openly online how are you gonna handle the marauding NAM hordes? Alt-righters are nothing but talk that's why Obama won by a landslide despite the new wave of conservative blogging. Commentators here are like that SWPL Fox reporter who got punked by those unions guys. Mental masturbating GOP cowards.

"Beta male has a nice ring to it. Moreover it's people like you should learn the difference. Omega males are guys who can't even maintain jobs. Most shooters are not unemployed.

What's wrong, Conquistador? Are you upset because your fellow omega males are being maligned here? Que lastima!

@ Gordon

What you said doesn't even make sense. The "high IQ" crowd should avoid comedy when they can't even grasp basic reading.

NY Times reveals Adam was an honor student just like the Aurora shooter. Yep definitely maladjusted and at the bottom of the hierarchy (rolls eyes). Sorry striver dorks but beta male rage is real.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/15/nyregion/adam-lanza-an-enigma-who-is-now-identified-as-a-mass-killer.html?pagewanted=1&_r=0

The common thread is asperger's / mild autism. Beta Omega whatever whatever is all a by product of that. Aurora, Columbine, Virginia Tech, its the smart socially awkward guys. Word is Adam Lanza was a goth in school. Goth kids need to be beat up some more and made to behave.

continuing on the Goth issue - The entire concept of allowing kids to dress the way they want in schools is bizarre. dress them all in uniforms and righteously teach them that they arent there in school to express themselves and be unique little snowflakes who are entitled to everything. beta male rage will be solved overnight when they realize their own inferiority. rage happens when their internal sense of entitlement conflicts with the reality of the world. world cannot be changed, what can be changed is the internal sense of entitlement.

Excellent points ardes.

But this is also true of the online sex nerds in the manoshere/Game community. These guys seem to believe they were entitled to a Victoria's Secret supermodel when they turned 18, it never happened and now they are bitter about it.

The reason I keep pointing out the mislabeling of Omegas as Betas is because I think it is fundamental to the omega's false sense of entitlement that he be considered a beta and not actually an omega.

Most sex nerds online are clearly omegas in that they are not sociable, average provider men with healthy relationships.

Obviously they aren't alphas.

But they falsely put themselves in the beta category to further their sense of entitlement. By doing so it makes they more bitter about the difference between what they have and what they think they deserve.

Omegas have no right to everything they want. They are lucky society lets them live. They should me humble, like a beggar in India.

The people who should RAGE are the average beta husbands and fathers of the wives, girlfriends and children these evil omega nerds keep on killing!

People here continue to misunderstand Intelligence.
Lanza could be intelligent and psychotic at the same time. The condition don't always reduce the mental performance immediately when it show up.

If he had delusions of persecution, he could have accumulated weapons to defend himself. The same could be said of his mother (psychiatric conditions often are inherited).

The problem is not in his intelligence level but in his inability to feel emotion correctly, control them, criticize his own mental process and so on.

What could have probably cause the killing spree is the fact the mother allegedly started to ask authorities to forcibly treat his son for his psychiatric problems. She probably did it because the behavior of his son was out of any control (I would bet she was beaten by him more than one time).

He discovered her actions and acted out, killing her. Then, probably, he went to discharge all his rage and frustration on the second target of his hate: the school / classroom that kept his mother from him.

This is not so strange for symbiotic couples (usually mother/son or mother/daughter) when they are separated for some reason.

"Omegas have no right to everything they want. They are lucky society lets them live. They should be humble, like a beggar in India."

Amen to that.
