Newtown Conspiracy Theory: ‘Sandy Hook’ Appears In ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ [Video]


Conspiracy theorists have latched on to another strange coincidence involving the Newtown, Connecticut, shooting massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School: the words “Sandy Hook” appear in the film The Dark Knight Rises, which itself is connected to a horrific shooting rampage.

Apparently “Sandy Hook” shows up at 1 hour, 58 minutes into the film, and several different videos shave been uploaded to the internet that isolates the scene in question. The Examiner explains:

“The YouTube video shows Gary Oldman’s character Commissioner James Gordon, who points to a map showing a targeted area identified as Sandy Hook, which was also known as ‘Strike Zone 1,’ the area where Gotham Stadium was located.

“According to many of the conspiracy theories, the purpose of the Sandy Hook reference was to generate subliminal messaging by the scene in Christopher Nolan’s final Batman movie. However, most label it as just a coincidence.”

The Examiner also points that “following the devastating shooting at an movie theater, conspiracy theorists spotted the name ‘Aurora’ on top of a large skyscraper during a scene in the film.”

On July 20, 2012, as everyone remembers, a gunman killed 12 people at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado.

In a tragedy of this magnitude, conspiracy theories seem both far-fetched and in poor taste. As the Gothamist observes,

“This attempt to draw a legitimate connection between a fictional film and a devastating real-life massacre comes off as trivializing. But we’ve got to admit it’s a pretty weird coincidence.”

Are you buying any of these off-the-wall conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook shootings? Do you think that some are just trying to explain the unexplainable?

Watch these videos that claim the Newtown shooting was part of a larger, mind control conspiracy:

    The "lone gunman" meme was so worn out already in the 1960s.

    Adam Lanza was NOT the "lone gunman," if he was a gunman at all.

    what EFin BS.who is the stupid editer that let you print this crap? where the F inthe DKR did they say shoot up a school? u psychos see what u want 2 see. did u see the movie? children were protected but also got a home. where is your message for that. u trouble making nazis.

    Listen to 5 minutes of Alex Jones' show and you'll understand how much of a deluded nut the guy really is. The irony is that his storming rants against government and society probably inspire more psychologically damaged lunatics to violence than any Hollywood movie.

    Sandy Hook was also a town in New Jersey that was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. The Dark Knight Rises must've influenced Mother Nature, as well.

    What about the vast amount of pre-subliminal messaging and images before 9/11? This is classic mind manipulation that pre-sets our acceptance of engineered tragedies and sets the stage for an "explanation" as to what you will understand as the cause. box-cutter weilding terrorists did NOT destroy the buildings at the WTC…don't buy that any longer folks…research research research…that is what the Internet is for, not the latest Kim Kardashian news. Don't be distracted by frivolous news.

    There is much less evidence for Biblical occurrences but fool sheep believe them implicitly.

    I believe BIGFOOT did the shooting, he does not want dangerous hunters in his woods killing off his food supply, he is elusive, he snatched poor innocent Adam away(with the.223 bushmaster, etc.)…BIGFOOT is anti-gun and knows this will sway the American public to his agenda..and do not even get Sasquatch started on agenda 21…

    It takes a lot less time to read something than to come up with a very complex conspiracy theory. Just finding the words Sandy Hook on the map must've taken hours cause I never saw it even when it was pointed out. You do realize that there are things named Sandy Hook probably in every state, possibly more than one per state. I personally know a person with that name. And then there was hurricane Sandy…do ya think?…

  11. Jimmy Corn

    Why wont you talk about what people ARE REALLY TALKING ABOUT? There were suspects/shooters arrested that day in fact at least 3 of them so what happened to them and why aren't they being talked about? Are the MSM presstitutes that completely think headed or are they just towing the corporate fairy tail of this 'lone gunman' nonsense? The car Adam "supposedly" drove to the school isn't even registered to him its registered to a Christopher Rodia who the hell is that guy and why is the Media still lying saying it is Nancy Lanza's car? Here are some more inconsistencies in the 'official' fairy tale…..

    1. Besides anonymous 'law enforcement officials' telling the media that Adam Lanza was a former pupil at the school, they also said his mother was currently a teacher there, that she was found among the dead and that her son had specifically sought out her classroom first. But when it emerged that teaching staff at the school had never heard of a Nancy Lanza, it was suggested that she was a substitute teacher whose name therefore mightn't appear on staff lists. But this claim too has disappeared down the memory hole because it's now known that neither Nancy nor her son had any connection with the school whatsoever. Adam Lanza was in fact home-schooled.

    2. Why were there such persistent reports that Mrs. Lanza was a kindergarten teacher, and that she died at the school, when the new official story is that she was not connected to the school and was killed at home?

    3. Also at least one parent told the AP that Nancy Lanza was a substitute teacher at the school. But that's not true because Nancy Lanza was never a teacher their and has no affiliation with the school. So who are these "parents" telling AP press that Lanza is a teacher? Why would they say that and what they don't know who is teaching their young children?

    4. Sandy Hook School Principal Dawn Hochsprung told The Bee that a masked man entered the school with a rifle and started shooting multiple shots – more than she could count – that went "on and on." How could the principal have survived to give this statement to local press describing what happened… if she was one of the first to be killed? Incidentally, The Newtown Bee's article was taken down a couple of days ago. Why was it taken down as to cover it up instead of making a redaction? And what the newspaper staff of the tiny town doesn't know who the elementary school principle is of their town? My mom worked as a editor of my cities paper which is far larger the Newtown and she was friends with all schools board members or at least knew who they were.

    5. In the official police radio transmissions an officer who sounds out of breath, like he's just given chase, reports what sounds like "these guys" followed certainly by "multiple weapons, including long rifles and shotgun". So what happened to these guys?

    we hear at 1.38' a report that gunfire is still being heard, even though the shooting was supposed to have ended by the time police arrived. The next report at 2.35' says that the shooting has stopped and the school is "in lockdown". At 3.23', the police relay a teacher's report that she saw "two shadows running past the gym" This is followed by another officer on the scene who says, "Yeh, we got 'em, they're coming at me! [inaudible]… Coming up the driveway real slowly!" That same officer at 5.40' says he has them "proned out", which presumably means he has apprehended them and they are laid out on the ground, before another officer comes on to say, "be aware that we do have a second [inaudible]…" Later on, at 19.10', an officer who sounds out of breath, like he's just given chase, reports what sounds like "these guys" followed certainly by "multiple weapons, including long rifles and shotgun". If these were found so early on, why were they not included in the initial press reports which stated that three firearms had been found – the Glock, Sig Sauer and Bushmaster AR-15 rifle?

    6. A child asserts that he/she heard someone say, "Put your hands up," followed by the reply, "Don't shoot." This indicates that the police took a suspect into custody inside the school. But if that was Adam Lanza, how did he kill himself after that point?

    7. Another child asserts that he/she saw a man pinned down to the ground with handcuffs on. Again, this indicates that the police took a suspect into custody. If that was Adam Lanza, how did he then kill himself?

    8. What happened to the woodsman in a black jacket and camo pants who was arrested and handcuffed outside the school? He actually shouted to parents, "It wasn't me." Who was he and what was he doing there?

    9.Video taken from a helicopter shows police chasing one man into the woods and catching him but it also shows another man at the 0:40 mark come out of hiding and start running.

    10. WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS REPORT about a manhunt for a second gunman heavily armed? The massacre involved two gunmen and prompted the town of Newtown to lock down all its schools and draw SWAT teams to the school, authorities said today.

    One shooter is dead and a manhunt is on for a second gunman. Police are searching cars. One shooter was described as a 24-year-old armed man with four weapons and wearing a bullet-proof vest, sources told ABC News.

    The ABC News report about a manhunt underway for the second gunman, BEFORE they straightened their story out. Remember that the first shooter was supposedly very much dead by the time police arrived, so this second gunman could not possibly have been 'confused' for the other one.

    11. Or this report….A second shooting suspect, a 24 year old man with a bulletproof vest and 4 guns has been apprehended in custody.

  12. Jimmy Corn

    12. suspect arrested in the woods was named in an Associated Press report as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza. The original report has long since vanished of course, but you can see it referenced here This was despite the fact that Ryan had already been named as the deceased suspect inside the school, lying next to two handguns.
    Ryan Lanza was actually at work in Hoboken, New Jersey, that morning when his name and photo began circulating in the media. And so, for most of Friday, the 'lone shooter' was erroneously reported as "Ryan Lanza, confirmed dead." At the same time, we were being told that Ryan's girlfriend and a room-mate were reported missing, also from Hoboken, New Jersey.

    13. So this isn't just a case of mistaken identity, as later claimed when it was suggested that Adam had a piece of identification belonging to his brother on his person. Not one, but BOTH Lanza brothers were being placed by 'law enforcement officials' at the scene of the shooting.
    Now remember, all of this confusion somehow resulted from a single guy going into a school and shooting children and teachers and then shooting himself, all within three minutes. Surely it should have been fairly easy to rapidly and concretely identify the details of such a crime and the scene.

    14. Long before any suspects were named, and even as we were being told that Nancy Lanza was among the dead at the school, we were told that police were investigating a murder in … Hoboken, New Jersey, where a body had been found at the home of … Ryan Lanza! An older "confirmed" version of events had RYAN, not Adam, traveling to Hoboken that morning to murder his father before going to the school in Newtown, Connecticut. Other variants had Ryan OR Adam going to both their divorced parents' homes and killing them before going to the school.

    15. someone or some people "confirming" to Associated Press and other media outlets that the Ryan's father had been murdered [he wasn't even aware that the shooting at the school had taken place until journalists turned up on his doorstep], or that Ryan's girlfriend had gone missing from Hoboken, or that either Ryan or Adam were pulled out of the adjacent woods in handcuffs yelling "I DIDN'T DO IT" to assembled parents. These aren't just 'little details' that can be confused for other details, these are detailed narratives. So how, or why, would any member of the press come up with such details?

    16. The medical examiner asserts that all wounds were caused by a rifle or other long weapon, and police/FBI say that the school was littered with .223 (rifle) casings. But Adam Lanza was found dead in the school with only handguns–a rifle was found in the trunk of his car. But then he could not possibly have been firing the rifle, and could not have committed the murders. Who did?

    17. The Bushmaster rifle was found in the trunk of the shooter's car. The Sig Sauer and Glock pistols were the only weapons used in the shooting, according to CBS.

    18. Now the question is what kind of magazine would allow a shooter to fire "100" rounds in such a short period." But it doesnt matter how many rounds because the medical examiner said the 7 bodies he has looked at so for have rifle .233 caliber bullet wounds as the ONLY used to kill them BUT HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE WHEN ADAM WAS FOUND WITH 2 PISTOLS AND THE RIFLE WAS FOUND LATER IN THE TRUNK OF THE CAR? That means IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ADAM TO HAVE KILLED THOSE KIDS BECAUSE HE DIDNT HAVE A RIFLE!

    19. Remember that only "the rifle" was used on all the victims. If only this rifle was used, and if we try to make this claim fit into the (admittedly fluid) official version of events, then the alleged lone gunman would have had to leave the school, place the rifle back in his trunk, then return inside the school and shoot himself. No one reported any such maneuver on the part of any gunman or gunmen. What we do have, however, is live emergency services radio feed in which we hear that two men have been apprehended and are "proned out" AND live video footage supported by eyewitness testimony showing what appears to be a THIRD man being arrested by police in the woods.

    20. One brave teacher, Kaitlin Roig, bundled a bunch of children into a bathroom and locked the door. What's interesting about her testimony to ABC News is that when police arrived and asked her to open the door, she refused, saying that "if they were really cops, they'd know where to find keys to open the door." In addition, she requested that they slide their badges under the door. Now, this is generally a smart thing to do in any and all interactions with the police, especially in the U.S. But to have the wherewithal to do so under such traumatic circumstances strongly suggests that Ms. Roig had logically deduced by that point that multiple perpetrators were involved, and that they were either impersonating police officers or were indistinguishable from SWAT team police commandos, either in the way they dressed or the way they behaved upon entering the building. It also reminds us just how narrow the time window of the actual shooting was. The shooting appears to have barely ended when men knocked on that bathroom door and told Ms. Roig they were police.

  13. Jimmy Corn

    21. According to the official story, the killing was tightly confined to two classrooms. But then why were so many children told to close their eyes while leaving the building?

    22. What happened to the dark van or SUV that the police surrounded in the parking lot, or the maroon sedan with a blown-out back window they were on the lookout for?

    23. According to the official story, Adam Lanza was found with his older brother's ID, and it was not stolen. However, older brother Ryan–who officials say is very cooperative–claims not to have even seen his brother since 2010. Where would Adam get this ID? And why does such use not qualify as a theft?

    24. Joanne Didonato, the principle's secretary, called in sick on Friday–something she rarely does. So presumably, she must have been awfully ill. Yet she then felt well enough to give an interview. "Of all days," she said, emphasizing the strange coincidence.

    25. Why were parents told on Friday that "if you haven't been reunited with your child by now it's already over"? Does anyone imagine that real parents of real children would simply say, "Okay, the shows over, let's go home now"?

    26. According to the official story, 28 people died but only 1 was wounded. The dead included 20 small, squirmy children–difficult targets even for professionals. How could Adam Lanza achieve such amazingly deadly accuracy, in such a short length of time?

    27. Why did the police say on Friday that they were going to leave the bodies rotting in the school until Sunday, then Saturday morning announce that they had spirited the bodies away in the middle of the night? Perhaps to ensure that the transport, if any, would go unrecorded on photos or video?

    28. The school in fact had cameras at the entrance of the school and you had to be 'buzzed' in by an administrator to get into the parking lot so how did Adam and others with body armor, masks and all black clothes get into the parking lot when as it turns out no one at the school had any idea who he was? what did the security cameras show?

    29. Fox News tells us that Adam Lanza had no history of mental illness, was not on any medication and had never been diagnosed

    30. Watch this video of State Police Lt. Paul Vance at the press conference he gave the day after the shootings. His answer is as bizarre as it is revealing. When asked whether Nancy Lanza had any connection with the school, he replied defensively about something that is both unrelated and arguably the most significant fact that completely undermines the official narrative: the arrest of a second gunman in the woods:

    That aurora scene wasn't in batman. It was in skyfall. So that kinda turns that one false. What if the killer did this on purpose? Looked for something small. Conspiracy or are you guys just looking too much into this.

    Dianne Ames McLaughlin, Hurricane Sandy was also given that name, hurricanes cant name themselves.

    Just because he wrote a story about it means nothing. He is a news writer, he did an article on it… Doesn't mean he believes it. You're a fool.

    Everyone who buys this shit is a fucking idiot. You guys should be ashamed that 20 children died and the first thing you do is try to prove it didn't happen. Your ignorance is why things like this happens in the first place, after all history does repeat itself.

    Sandy Hook is just a neighborhood in Newtown, it kind of looks like a map in this scene, probably just a coincidence.

  22. Brandon Bauer

    how are we supposed to look at any of this info if you only posted part of the websites???

  23. Robert Timsah

    Previously that area was called South Hinkley, not Sandy Hook. The changed it for Dark Knight rises and Dark Knight Rises alone.

  24. Mike Maly

    This is really messed up. REALLY messed up. Drawing conclusions on things that happened completely out of time context. Messed up.

    dude that is like the commercial that says that everything you read on the internet is true— Bonjour!

  26. Christina Mowatt

    There are no coincidences where the occultists are involved. If you study the occult like I have for 20 years these crazy coincidences make sense. "Coincidences" add power to their rituals. The people behind the scenes are heavily involved in the occult. They are narcissictic and that is why they give you clues.

  27. Jim Mallett

    You are paranoid. Hope you get help. The mentally ill, like you, should not have access to guns.

    A tragedy used for nefarious reasons by the enemas of the state, who happen to be the state.

    You have your "facts" wrong, bro. This is what happens when you research but don't check time stamps.

  31. Joe Ward

    I'm not religous, but the odds being contemplated here are so high as to more likley be devine intervention.

  32. Lionel Suarez

    The "Powers that Be" believe in placing symbols and clues in plain sight. This is how they gain energy for there endeavors (ancient mystery school techniques). The only problem is that people are catching their clues now, something that didn't happen before. The more their symbols move from the realm of the subconsious to the conscious, the more they fail. Simple. So we just need to educate ourselves, and break free from the old school media as much as possible.

  33. Lionel Suarez

    Samantha, can you elaborate? Are you saying that two different schools have the same names in their faculty? I don't get it????

  34. Tamiko Nena Elizabeth Norris

    You all believe what you want to believe, but everything IS connected, the United States is on its way to a civil war. People against the government! Do your research people! Its true thats it is all connected. Not coincidence!

  35. Johnny Worthington

    Wait, so the government is both incompetent AND running a mass conspiracy? Geez dude. Pick a side already. You can't have it both ways

  36. Shelly Armas

    I don't know if I believe all of this but, but I do believe that Obama is an extremely evil and manipulative man and I also believe that he will do whatever he can to accomplish his agenda. Even the president of Russia spoke openly about either Obama being an extremely stupid man or a man on a mission to destroy the US. It's a horrible thing to think about when you consider these two shootings, but if you were a man who wanted to disarm the American public what better way than to use the shootings as leverage to enact new gun control laws. Once the people are disarmed, you no longer have a fighting chance against a government that wants to destroy or take over, think about that. I also think that in times like these one needs to open your mind to other possibilities, and trusting that the government will watch over you and protect you a thing of the past.

  37. David Williamson

    I would hate to think our own government would do something like this but it's pretty coincidental that when things are going wrong for Obama, suddenly there is a mass shooting to distract everyone.

  38. Jonathon Subia

    Shut up. Civil war? Americans aren't stupid enough to fight our government and Obama isn't taking our guns. You people are fucking idiots. And I Bel in conspiracy theories!

  39. Jonathon Subia

    Who said shit about Obama you idiot! You truly think this guy wants our fucking guns!!??? GAWD you people are dumb. If anything at all he's a puppet. He doesn't have any power. Look to the bilderbur
