There have been some answers that have come forth with regard to several questions I posed earlier with regards to the shooting that took place in Newtown, Connecticut at Sandy Hook Elementary School. One comes by way of a video by Molotav Mitchell and the other by means of Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance. I appreciate the fact that Molotav exposes the fact that the weapon found in the trunk of the car was not an AR-15 of any kind. I also appreciate the fact that he demonstrates that it could very well have been a Saiga 12 gauge semi-automatic shotgun.
I don't know that he proves the point that an AR-15 was not used in the shooting, but he does demonstrate that an AR-15 was not in the trunk of the car.
The primary weapon used in the attack was a "Bushmaster AR-15 assault-type weapon," said Connecticut State Police Lt. Paul Vance.
For the record, I don't believe Vance is actor John Goodman, OK? The man has been with the CT State Police for 38 years, not out in Hollywood doing Roseanne and the Flintstones. I also don't buy into the fact that the attorney for James Holmes is also an actress who plays a part as a mother in Newtown, nor am I buying into that fact that pictures of the Parker girls with Barack Obama two days after the shooting contain Emilee Parker. Clearly this has been debunked.
Molotav's point in demonstrating the weapon found in the trunk of the car is that the police eject a cartridge, which he refers to as a shotgun shell, and they do so from the side not the rear, which is consistent with both the semi-automatic shotgun and the AR style weapons.
For the record, the Connecticut State Police have had on their website for quite some time the three weapons used in the shooting and yes, they include a Bushmaster AR-15.
As I've said before, there are plenty of questions yet to be answered and they involve eyewitness testimony and video footage. At least in the video Molotav answers one of those questions and that is with regard to the kind of weapon retrieved from the trunk of the black car seen in this video. For this, I'm thankful someone pointed out my own suspicions.
So, some questions I did have answered today by Lt. Vance, per a phone conversation, was that of other suspects. I sent him the link to the police running through the woods and pushing a suspect to the ground.
He told Freedom Outpost that "civilians don't understand what takes place in these situations." According to Lt. Vance, when police arrive on the scene of a shooting like this, everyone who seems "out of place" is held until they can confirm their identity and what they are there for. "Even if its a UPS driver delivering packages, he is held until his identity can be determined and his presence legitimate," Vance said.
In the case of the suspect in the woods, it was determined that he was a man who was legitimately cutting wood and he was released.
Vance said that this was the case with the man the boy referenced as being handcuffed in front of the school, as well as, the van with the back window blown out. He said, "We had to make sure that the person driving the vehicle was not involved and fleeing the scene."
Additionally, another question that remained was The Newtown Bee's report of the principal, Dawn Hocksprung, calling in and reporting that a masked man had entered the school with a rifle and started shooting was also addressed. After contacting the publication, I was referred to their statement here, which reads:
Retraction And Apology
An early online report from the scene at the December 14 shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School quoted a woman who identified herself to our reporter as the principal of the school. The woman was not the school's principal, Dawn Hochsprung, who was killed in the Friday morning attack. The quote was removed from subsequent online versions of the story, but the original story did remain in our online archive for three days before being deleted.
We apologize for whatever confusion this may have caused our readers and for any pain or anguish it may have cause the Hochsprung family.
This clears up several things that seem to have gone unanswered. There are still questions. At least these have answers.
With that said, it will not stop the Left from pushing their agenda of demonizing AR-15s, as well as, all firearms.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
