Not really. Pictures are just fragmentary glimpses of that person's life, they mean absolutely nothing. In some pictures as a boy I have a blank expression, in some a forced smile, and in some a genuine expression of happiness. From what I can tell. Of course it's hard to know what emotional state I was in back in those photos.

He actually rejected his medication, so it seems he was on absolutely nothing at the time of the shooting.

I thought I'd resurrect this post due to some strange rants from Adam Lanza's father Peter Lanza.

Among other things Peter Lanza claims Adam had schizophrenia and not Aspergers?

Peter Lanza is the lowest form of life that crawls on this planet. Judging from his ignorance he (Peter Lanza) quite likely made no constructive attempt bring up his son properly and likely contributed to Adam Lanza's state of mind. His latest rant is a transparent attempt to whitewash his bad fathering that likely led to Adam Lanza's desire to kill. No sane person would wish their child was never born. he also refers to a evil gene? (take two guesses whom Adam would have inherited that from!!) His conduct is disgusting. If he had any decency he would have taken responsibility for not spending enough time with his son.


I agree with you. I would think Mr. Lanza would still try to remember and love the little boy Adam had been, who still lives in his memories. And an "evil gene?" That's as goofy as Billy Graham's kid saying that President Obama has "the seed of Islam."


Exactly. I think he's ignorant and perhaps nieve to think people can't see his unsubtle attempt to look "sparkly clean" and distance himself from his son's conduct in the eyes of the public.


I'm glad this was brought this up! When I heard Peter Lanza say that about his son, I wanted to vomit in his face. What a sack.

TBH I've had more more difficulty being photogenic over the course of time. I stopped smiling in my school pics around middle school. Not because I didn't want to smile but it was around the time when I first notice a lack of control over facial expression when it needed to be expressed. Now I try to avoid photos in general if I can help it. I wouldn't be surprised if over the course of time, Lanza lost his ability to manage his facial expressions as well.

The blank expression is typical of someone with an ASD. You'll also find that it'll probably be more evident in the high school years, as that's often the hardest point in time for the higher functioning folk.

(It's one of the most distinguishable symptoms when just looking at someone with such.)
