The Sandy Hook Tragedy: An Inquisitive Visit to Newtown, Connecticut
Extracts from Text and Photos by Scott DeLarm - Global Research News - January 29, 2013.
We spent January 21 in Newtown visiting the Sandy Hook School and Sandy Hook Volunteer Fire House, Gene Rosen’s residence...
Inside the tent was a chaplain who asked that I not take any photos. There were hundreds of stuffed animals and candles as well as children’s art ....
I asked the chaplain if she had seen any children whom had been impacted. She did not answer.,,,
The front of the school is entirely boarded up
Gene Rosen lives next door to the fire house.
Thus Ms. Victoria Soto’s students that landed on Mr. Rosen’s yard had to come down Dickenson Drive and turn right, passing the fire house, to get to Mr. Rosen’s.
A lady at the Rosen house would not answer the door when I knocked.
We sat at the 100 Church Hill Restaurant for a couple of hours.
My partner and I spoke with a couple in their early twenties for an hour or so. They were life long locals.
Eventually they asked why we were in Newtown and we told them we had heard of their tragedy. They did not comment further and we did not push the issue.
We then went to the offices of The Newtown Bee, the community’s weekly newspaper, where we spoke with the editor, Mr. Curtis Clark.
Mr. Clark did not offer a warm reception.
I told him I was there to follow up on The Bee’s report that stated, in part, “A man with a gun who was spotted in the woods near the school on the day of the incident was an off-duty tactical squad police officer from another town, according to the source.”
I asked who this officer was, and why he was in the woods.
Mr. Clark told me that "Snopes.com debunks many of these conspiracy theories"...
Clark would not address this report and became very agitated with me "interrogating" him.
"I don’t intend to discuss this any further with you," he said...
