Connecticut police commend ‘heroic’ response to Sandy Hook massacre

Yahoo News

(Reuters) – The “heroic actions” of teachers, school staff and first responders following the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre of 26 young children and educators at Newtown elementary school may have prevented the death toll from being even higher, Connecticut State Police said in a report released on Friday.

The 74-page report detailed state police response to the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School, one of the five deadliest mass shootings by a single gunman in U.S. history. 

A 20-year-old gunman armed with a high-powered assault rifle launched his attack on Dec. 14, 2012, at the school in a wealthy New York commuter suburb, after killing his mother at their home. He ended the rampage by shooting himself as he heard the sirens of approaching police vehicles.

The response to the attack “was handled effectively. Had it not been for the heroic actions of the teachers, school staff and the response force, the number of victims could have been higher,” the report said.

The report included a series of recommendations, some based on harsh criticism sparked by hours-long delays in notifying families of the deaths of the 20 children and six school staff.

“Accurate and timely death notification to victims’ families should be one of the highest priorities,” the report said. “Delays in notification were a great source of frustration for agency personnel … and added confusion, frustration, and stress for the family members.”

The report also recommended ramping up police body armor to increase the ballistic protection, noting that the standard armor provided to troopers would not have protected them from the Sandy Hook gunfire or possibly another active shooter situation, the report said.

There should also be better mental health assistance for first responders to a tragedy like Sandy Hook, the report said.

“The magnitude of this incident, especially given the age and number of victims, certainly had an impact on all responding personnel,” the report said.

After-action reports have become standard practice for U.S. law enforcement and are intended to improve response.

Similar reports were published after mass shootings dating back to the deadly 1999 rampage at Columbine High School in Colorado, which left 12 dead.

The Sandy Hook massacre inflamed the long-running U.S. debate over the right to bear arms, enshrined in the Second Amendment of the Constitution. States including Connecticut and New York passed laws limiting the possession of high-capacity ammunition magazines like those used in the attack, though federal efforts stalled in Congress.

    Now that IS odd… the official FBI stats released for that year showed ZERO murders in that city.

    Somebody’s lying.

    “…The “heroic actions” of teachers, school staff and first responders…”

    What exactly were these “heroic actions”? Did they involve the ability to refrain from laughing at this farce when the cameras were rolling?

    Then they deserve the accolades. Some of the crisis actors weren’t nearly as skilled.

      Dave Wheeler can not be both a father to a victim and marching around as a SWAT team member at the same time! A hoax at play.
      ….same mole on cheek. How can people ever wake up? Sophia Smallstorm on you tube.

    • Eric says:

      The fat slob dressed as SWAT, holding the AR upside down by the magazine, was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. The second funniest thing I saw was Robbie Parker smiling and laughing:

      Newtown was a non-event false flag. Nothing less, nothing more.

    Wait, whaaaa?! There’s dead kids in Sandy Hook?! Stupor bowl season is upon us so perhaps they’ll turn up again like they did a few weeks after their first time being holocausted in 2012.

    “The Sandy Hook massacre inflamed the long-running U.S. debate over the right to bear arms, enshrined in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

    “Enshrined”? Are there any other Articles you’d like to denigrate because you have an agenda to fulfill(goldberg, adler)? Filthy F’g kikes.

      Sandy Hoax was designed to do what?

  4. Bob in Wisconsin says:

    Somebody is really worried, evidenced by the production of the PBS documentary “Newtown”, and at minimum, two movies about the Boston bombing. Enough, apparently so, to think that more disinformation and further propaganda is required to maintain the myth.

    The criminals have already silenced the most vocal and effective truth researchers on YouTube. I suspect that eventually, few will be able to research these matters as easily as many did just a few short years ago.
    The history books generations hence will then report the “official” story of Sandy Hook, The Boston Bombing, 9/11….etc, for our great grand children to read….. Just As our history books and mass media report to us, in our time.
