As reports begin to come in as to the constitution of mentally challenged Sandy Hook Elementary school shooter, one individual, Ryan Kraft, a former babysitter for Adam Lanza has stepped up to recount his own experience with Adam and that of his mother.
Expressing shock and dismay, Ryan Kraft now living in California told media outlet KCBS. the following: Mr Kraft recalls Nancy Lanza’s chilling words to him before she left him in charge of her young son.
‘(She said) to keep an eye on him at all times…to never turn my back, or even to go to the bathroom or anything like that.’
He described Adam as a quiet, very intelligent and introverted.
‘Whenever we were doing something, whether it was building Legos, or playing video games, he was really focused on it. It was like he was in his own world,’
On the surface the warning comes off quite ominous as what is suggested is the plethora of danger that the young boy could subject himself and others too. Nevertheless one should also recall Adam Lanza had a condition that did not allow him to physical feel pain which of course necessitated constant attention, especially during activities that were elements of physical activity were warranted. Then of course one can quite possibly imagine Nancy Lanza uttering the above from the viewpoint of a concerned disenfranchised mother who only sought to protect her son.
One has to be careful to read too much into the above statement given the current outpouring of grief and general animosity and disgust towards Adam Lanza who needlessly and selfishly took away innocent lives.
