Hi I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight mass murder in Connecticut -- unspeakable evil on display.
There's little anyone can say when twenty school children -- murdered.
Accounting diminishes the entire country and deeply affects all good people.
Here's -- we know at this hour.
About 9:40 this morning at the sandy hook elementary school in Newtown Connecticut.
Twenty year old Adam -- shot the principal dead also killed this school psychologists that -- entered two classrooms killing the children.
Four other adults died as well.
-- as his mother Nancy was a teacher to school and he apparently murdered her earlier in the morning at the home they share.
Right now there is no known motive and we won't be getting any explanation from Lanza who committed suicide at the school.
This is the worst school shooting ever in Connecticut second worse in the United States behind Virginia Tech.
Here's some scenes in the aftermath of this appalling -- Evil.
And the visited this community today.
I'll call came into dispatch police officers and resources from all over the Speed -- that area.
As they converged on the school.
Children obviously we're very shaken their crying in the closet when they're leaving the police made them hold hands and -- on to close their eyes.
They have their entire lives ahead of them.
And graduation is.
Kids of their -- It's MTJ tech -- at -- against me out of line everybody stacked -- on the game.
There's no words it's sheer terror.
Doesn't even seem real it just does not seen legacy event possible.
Not enough Hyperic.
And I can't hear me booming night it.
I just all of this songs networking trend.
It's -- yeah.
Good kids you were terrified they were terrified.
They had just witnessed something.
Good day they were they were terrified.
-- -- -- -- -- May god bless the memory of the victims and in the words of scripture.
-- broken hearted.
And by an up -- -- Now three guns were found at the scene two pistols and a rifle police say they were legally purchased and registered to land his mother.
Who again was apparently murdered by him.
With a south Fox News anchor -- -- to between us we pretty much seen.
What there is -- -- in this world.
But this kind of evil -- got to be at the top of the charts.
You know bill.
I've been I -- with Charles Manson had been a war correspondent for forty years I covered the worst atrocities of Iraq and Afghanistan.
This is the worst thing ever I haven't seen in my mind that I just can't get out of my mind.
He had the three weapons he had the Glock in the -- that -- both nine millimeter semi -- did the two to three bushmaster heard it's unclear whether or not he used it most reports are suggesting that he left that one in the car.
Which means he went into the school.
Gets past security gets into the classroom.
One or two classrooms and starts firing at the little children.
At some point he has to run out of ammunition even if he has extended magazines at some point yes the reload.
So the scene I have in my mind.
Is these babies between the ages of five -- ten.
As this grown up these are children who have never seen evil these are children who are.
In that flower of innocence.
And he has a grown up dressed in camel.
And bulletproof vests and he's got two handguns and he starts killing the children you can imagine the children.
And and and then -- -- loading in the and they as the dead children and they as the children yet to be killed.
And in this moment.
Just imagine the -- before he kills them it is so unconscionable.
It is beyond.
It is so.
Evil doesn't do it it doesn't it doesn't explain sufficiently.
The -- frame.
Reckless indifference to the lives of these children is just something as that -- -- reply by absolutely and market.
No nobody can is no explanation for it.
And it is evil you would admit that that's what it is so new look.
And things like this that happen and energy and why they happen so much in the United States you know I mean we saw the Norwegian thing.
You last year and all of that but it just -- it's a good country.
But there's insanity there's a strain of insanity now running through our country and we'll get to that a little bit later but you know you go to the concentration camps.
You know you've been there right that's what it most reminds harder than theirs was that's you know within the -- -- -- right you go to the concentration camps and you go to Cambodia.
And they saw the -- if you want to you know see them.
And you and you go to China.
And you see what's happened.
In various places and -- comes back to wanting it all comes back to there is an evil in the universe and when you can't stop it.
You can't stop it.
And and we have to deal with that we just have to deal with a.
This young man.
At a -- -- woke up.
Killed his mother.
Why do you killed his -- We don't know maybe he thought his mother was paying too much attention to the children.
Maybe it was something as well we don't want -- spend late tonight as crazy as that will -- after she's dead right he then drives to her classroom.
How best to -- -- -- mother.
Then to go and killed the children she cared for that she nurtured that she taught.
And -- into.
Craig sourcing my -- it was in the world he sourcing where all the parents.
Collected their children the surviving children.
And the governor at some point says.
Those who haven't collected their children there are no more children to collect they are inside the forensics are still ongoing.
They were at the firehouse.
-- the families arriving.
Late some coming from out of town the school was almost a -- because it was so good in.
And parents coming during the course of the afternoon.
He's -- scenes.
Where the parents were taking the car seat added the backseat.
And putting it in the truck.
Never to be used again.
I mean I don't think -- that a person listening right now apparent.
Who can't just be so.
Defeated deflated out raged.
Sickened and disgusted.
If the -- and the worst part of it is we can't do anything about.
He's not going to do the higher the other bitter irony is that this this heroic principled that dawn hops wrong.
Implement its security at the school.
She put a buzzer system in the school that he.
Apparently burst through to get to the -- his mom taught there they knew him and he knew how to get into the school I mean I want and formed.
Cops at every school you and I did this story not so long ago -- are there to school shootings and there was a copycat following it.
The new English kids -- be remembered you know Pennsylvania.
And then I said I want we have to protect these children have as if they were goal as -- they wore him live fish bit -- mobile.
