the nuns look very official. In fact they ... even have identification badges. The nuns also appear to be wearing police or military issue 511 Tactical Shoes in a non-suede finish. We have also had a local reader ... saying that no nuns [in the Sandy Hook area] wear this type [of] garb, ... these nuns are not indigenous to the area.And according to this police/fire department radio log, there were reports of suspects of whom "One may be wearing a nun outfit, headed toward Danbury and Stoney Hill, purple van" (just after 1:35).
Maybe this is all fake. "The camera," so the late, great journalist Malcolm Muggeridge maintained, "always lies" and the bit about the suspect "in a nun outfit" could easily have been dubbed into the police audiotape. But then, why? To give a bum steer to those trying to find out what actually happened? That would certainly be a good way to discredit those unsatisfied with the CNN version of events.
Referring to the photo above, Harold Calahan, over at James Tracy's blog comments:
I knew our Nuns were pretty scary but ...
Three separate pictures have the tall nun with her right hand apparently holding down something, So it looks like a 6 ft 2 inch 70 year old pregnant Nun is holding her stomach – with her size 14 shoes on ...
Note: In my view there is no reason to assume that the nuns pictured above are other than ordinary, if non-indigenous, non-pregnant nuns, of ordinary height, going about the ordinary business of nuns, whatever that may be, and wearing sensible shoes that look to me very much like the ordinary shoes worn now-a-days by nearly everyone, notwithstanding that they may also resemble "military issue" 511 Tactical Shoes.
If, as the Newtown Police are said to have reported," there were multiple suspects in "possible nun outfits ... fleeing the scene in a purple van wearing ski masks," so be it. They must have been a different bunch of nuns to those shown above who are clearly without masks.
But how do we know that the nuns shown above were even at Sandy Hook on the day of the Shooting? We know the police reported someone in a nun outfit taking off in a purple van. So perhaps the photograph of these very ordinary looking nuns was introduced into the narrative to suggest that any nuns witnessed at the scene of the shooting were, in fact, just ordinary nuns. The idea is outlined in greater detail and in relation to the discarded black clothing seen at the school, in the following video (beginning at 2:30).
Blow up the image and, hey, what's that bulge?
