Updated Theory about it being the wrong person

They aren't correcting it on the news, and I never saw any facebook posts on his page (I've been on it since they released his name). How do we know that ONE picture of his status updates isn't a fake?

Someone could of made a new account and uploaded his picture and posted the status

or it could really be the wrong person.... I don't know

The wrong Ryan should sue everyone for boat loads of money and then donate it all to the families... problem over.

The only thing is though, On facebook if you don't have someone added they don't show everything, and rarely show more than 3-4 pics and 1-2 status before you actually add them, so he could of posted it and we still couldn't see it

How about we verify it before potentially ruining someones life? How about we stop glorifying acts like this? Remember the media went to psychologists after VT and asked 'how can we help stop these?' and they told them flat out; stop glorifying these *******s because if you do, we can expect to see a follow up attack from someone looking for sympathy and attention.

What the **** is with this 'gotcha' journalism? A bunch of kids died. Stop hovering over this like vultures, looking for every tidbit you can sell to the public. Holy ****.

Because after something like this people do not think straight. Like someone mentioned, its a mob mentality.

* Edit *

XX Mentioned something important. These atrocious shootings keep happening because the media is always glorifying these people. They make them infamous. This doesn't help in preventing these types of acts.

I feel bad for him too. It's going to be a rough couple of days for that guy. However, let's not overstate just how bad. Remember the actual shooter is dead, so if this guy's alive to defend himself, he can just remind people of that, which should end it right there.

There's a "Ryan Lanza" on twitter that just said this:

Quote:
Ryan Lanza ‏@Ryan__Lanza

so aperently im getting spammed bc someone with the same name as me killed some ppl... wtf?
https://twitter.com/Ryan__Lanza/stat...77363938263041

However, some of the previous tweets from this Ryan Lanza are rather odd.

I'm curious to know what people think they're accomplishing by doing stuff like that - even if it is the real shooter.

I guess it's an outlet for people or some sort of catharsis...but come on...

There's a special place in hell for monsters like this.
R.I.P to the victims

B.I.H (Burn in hell) to the shooter

Apparently the gunman's mother was the kindergarten teacher and the body of the man at his house was his father. The guy arrested is his brother. That's what seems to be reported right now.
