What is known about the specifics of the shootings comes from eyewitnesses.
Before going into spinal surgery, Anastasia Boylan told her father and brother the gunman entered her classroom firing. The professor in the classroom was shot point blank. Others were hit, she told her family.
Everyone in the classroom dropped to the ground.
The gunman, while reloading his handgun, ordered the students to stand up if they were Christians, Boylan told her family.
“And they would stand up and he said, ‘Good, because you're a Christian, you're going to see God in just about one second,'” Boylan's father, Stacy, told CNN, relaying her account.
“And then he shot and killed them.”
One report on Mercer:
Posts on an online blog that appears to belong to Mercer reference multiple shootings, including one in Virginia in August that left a television news reporter and cameraman dead. The last upload on the blog was Wednesday. when a documentary about the Newtown shooting was posted.
In one post on the blog about Vester Flanagan, the man who killed the reporter and cameraman in Virginia, Mercer apparently wrote, “I have noticed that so many people like [Flanagan] are alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are. A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems like the more people you kill, the more you're in the limelight.”
The fallout of this shooting on social media has already begun. Taking their cue from their leader Obama, the cries for stricter gun control must happen, and if you believe anything but that as the answer for these horrifying events, then you are the worst type of human being.
The arguments by those calling for stricter gun control are sadly easily dispelled. Bad people, mentally ill people, will obtain a gun if that is their goal. If we can focus on anything, maybe it is the mentally ill people who are dangerous that slip through the cracks. Looking at this man's social media proves a preoccupation with those who shoot up schools-yet no one heeded the call to inform the authorities.
did his on-line spies tell him this was coming?
