The perpetrator of the heinous crime that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary on December 14, 2012, called an Oregon radio show on December 11, 2011 and talked about about mass murder.
The show was Anarchy Radio, and Lanza called it using the pseudonym “Greg.”
In audio provided by the NY Daily News, Lanza can be heard talking about Travis, the chimpanzee who attacked and ripped Charla Nash’s face off in 2009.
Lanza explained that the chimp was 20-years old in human years–Lanza was 20 when he committed his heinous crime–and he said Travis brought up questions we must deal with concerning child rearing “because every child is born in a chimp-like state and civilization is only sustained by a conditioning [that lasts] for years on end.”
He said that we can’t see the problem with this when we look at our fellow humans, but when we look at the chimpanzee we see that the conditioning was hurtful. He said “[civilization] had the same impact on [Travis] as it has on humans. He was profoundly sick in every sense of the term.”
Lanza said he believed that Travis wasn’t “a senselessly violent, impulsive chimp, which was how his behavior was universally portrayed.” Rather, Lanza said the chimp wanted his owner to help him, that pressure was building and “some little thing he experienced was the last straw.”
He then brought it all together for those listening live to the show that morning: “[Travis’] attack can be seen entirely parallel to the random acts of violence… committed by humans, which the mainstream also has no explanation for.”
Lanza added: “I don’t think it would be such a stretch to say he very well could have been a teenage mall shooter.”
His last statement was: “Maybe I’m just seeing connections where there aren’t any.”
