Leave it to Fox to have a unique take on a tragedy that has struck the Sandy Hook community. Fox anchor, Megyn Kelly and analyst Keith Ablow decided to talk out what might have made alleged gunman Adam Lanza to commit such a heinous crime.
The Fox anchor had suggested because the men who commit these crimes are young, that it’s easy for them to disconnect from real life. Kelly started off by addressing Ablow, “You mentioned earlier how people lose themselves in online activities, gaming and what have you.”
The analyst remarked to Kelly, “We have to look at their forces that empower people to get knowledge through the internet, but there are some dehumanizing sources that come with that.” He then suggested that social networking sites, such as Facebook are to blame for dehumanizing these killers enough to commit these horrible crimes. “Reality TV is no friend of preventing such things,” Adding, “Facebook is no friend of preventing such things,” said Ablow.
So far the press hasn’t identified the “why” of it all, but we do know that Lanza has a history of mental illness, and his mother, a Kindergarten teacher, was a huge target in the chaotic shooting, that left a Kindergarten classroom dead, with 27 people fatally shot, seven of them adults.
His brother, Ryan, who was originally reported as the gunman, is reportedly cooperating with the police force, and said his younger brother Adam was carrying his ID on him at the time he opened fire at Sandy Hook Elementary.
