Here's a weird statistic. The FBI reported that in 2012, there were no murders in Newton CT. But, that was the year of the Sandy Hook massacre in which 26 people reportedly died.

It says 0 murders and no nonnegligent manslaughters. So, what about the 20 kids and 6 teachers who died at Sandy Hook? Don't they count? Are they leaving them out for some reason? If so, what is the reason? 

Is it because it was terrorism? But, it wasn't terrorism. Terrorism is when you kill to make a political statement. It's when you hate a certain government, so you kill the citizens of that government to punish that government. But, Adam Lanza didn't kill for that reason, did he? He wasn't trying to change US policy in the Middle East was he? His was just the act of a raving lunatic, right? So, why wouldn't you include his victims in the crime statistic?

Very strange.
