A Third-Grader Describes The Shooting at Connecticut Sandy Hook Elementary School
 Part of channel(s): Connecticut School Shooting (current event)

At least 26 people were killed, including at least 18 children, when a gunman opened fire in a Connecticut elementary school Friday morning, a law enforcement official said. The alleged gunman, a 20-year-old male, was later found dead at the school.
The incident sent crying children spilling into the school parking lot as frightened parents waited for word on their loved ones.
"I was in the gym and I heard a loud, like seven loud booms, and the gym teachers told us to go in the corner, so we all huddled," one student at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown told NBC Connecticut during its live broadcast. "And I kept hearing these booming noises. And we all ... started crying.

  • If this is not exploitation, I do not know what is....

    Interviewing a minor about this tragic incident?
    The media is fucking disgusting.
    They are just exploiting this tragedy for ratings and glorifying this act.

    I am glad I stopped watching TV.
    We were forced to move to digital, buy a brand new $1,000 box to make my TV work again, fuck that, I just threw that piece of shit out.

    • @mrroith Amen, do not let them take your guns from you like they did to us.

      I mean, I still have a few rifles, but that is only because I have a mate with farmland and got him to sign this BS statement that they are to be only used for vermin killing.

      The amount of effort I had to go to to get my rifles, I could have easily gotten better guns, for cheaper, illegally.

  • I did not watch the video on the basis that I think it is pathetic that the media would interview a kid in this situation.

    The media = scum.

  • Where was the shooter living a year ago? Was it a 'Parents get divorce. Mother and son move to new town to start a new life.' story?

      That Treyvon thing was a media fiasco.

      The facts in the Columbine story a few years ago turned out to be almost totally opposite of what was originally reported. The media mostly ignored the conclusions of the actual investigation which came out a year or so after the shootings.

  • I could kill a man with a fork, gun or not we kill its instinct when you kill kids your a gutless Cleavland steamer with the ability to pull a trigger if one teacher or even a kid had a gun no one would be dead. ALLOW GUNS IN THE HANDS OF TEACHERS TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AND THERE CHILDREN NOW!

      Fact is, how many school massacres have been carried out with forks?

      I say, abolish the ban on hand grenades then...

    • @parastoned
      I know of people who used airplanes to kill people.
      Some people ignore that fact and even say it never happened.
      BAN COMERCIAL AIRCRAFT !!!

    • @Airedale

      Commercial aircraft will never be banned.
      A better idea is to abolish the ban on hand grenades, as when properly used a hand grenade has never, ever killed anyone. And these are much more efficient than aircraft, forks, guns or anything else one can think of.

  • I left that shithole of a twon years ago for Texas and never thought I'd feel pity for these people...but I'm here now and my niece attends another elementary school. It's hard to even fathom. My sister knows several people who lost kids.

    My condolences and prayers go out to the people of Newtown. And media...go home. Go away.

    • @Texas TEA

      Why did you thumb me down then?

      My thoughts are on these kids that were certainly thinking about Christmas and the gifts that they were going to get. And even more so on the parents who have already bought and wrapped these presents and who now have to deal with these. Straight to the garbage bin, I guess. I also guess that you either must have kids of that age yourself like I do, or be very close to them, to really feel something more than the norm about that kind of situation.

      Y More..
