One more “long-shot coincidence”: Sandy Hook, Dark Knight Rises

One more “long-shot coincidence”: Sandy Hook, Dark Knight Rises

by Jon Rappoport

January 8, 2012

The murders at the premier of the The Dark Night Rises, in Colorado, and the massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, have yet another bizarre connection.

First of all, in the film, The Dark Knight Rises, which premiered last summer in Aurora, where a killer(s) took the lives of 12 theater goers, wounding 58 others, there is a moment at one-hour, fifty-eight minutes. A startling moment in the Batman movie. Commissioner Gordon is talking about thwarting an imminent attack on “Strike Zone One.”

At that moment, he points to the only legible words on a map lying on a table in front of him. The words are: SANDY HOOK. The scene of the massacre last month at a Connecticut elementary school. The other recent massacre.

And now, by way of an article at, we have a new tie-in. The unlisted author of that article cites a story from a newspaper in Connecticut, The Stamford Advocate. Dated April 7, 2012, it has so far flown under the radar. It reports a death in an automobile accident, on the Merritt Parkway. The victim was Scott Getzinger.

Mr. Getzinger was the property master on The Dark Knight Rises. As such, there is a chance he, in fact, selected that map with the words SANDY HOOK printed on it. The property master is responsible for all props used in a film.

The Stamford Advocate story mentions that Getzinger’s injuries were, at first, called non-life threatening by the police. But then he died.

The last fact of the story is stunning, to say the least. Mr. Getzinger was a resident of…Newtown, Connecticut.

As I and others have pointed out previously, the production designer of The Dark Knight Rises, Nathan Crowley, is related to the infamous black-magic British legend, Aleister Crowley, sometimes called The Great Beast 666. Aleister was Nathan’s grandfather’s cousin.

Then we have the fact that Suzanne Collins, author of The Hunger Games, a novel in which 23 children are ritually sacrificed in combat by the dystopian state, also lives in Sandy Hook/Newtown.

    This is incredible. Thank you, Jon, for attempting to help everyone connect the dots to form the picture of what is actually happening.

  2. Timmy says:

    “aurora” also appears in the film… on a building’s lighted sign

  3. Joe Myrick says:

    So is there a consensus that we are dealing with a cult phenominon, that has members worldwide, and in all of these circles.

  4. bob klinck says:

    Who first noticed the mention of “Sandy Hook” in the Batman movie, and what could possibly have drawn their attention to it?

  5. Val says:

    Maybe since he lived in Newtown, he bought the map in Newtown and that is why it had SANDY HOOK on it. Just a thought?

  6. Hermies says:

    These “clues” left in mainstream media, for everyone to see, are obviously part of the total psy-op which the Fascist rulers use as part of their attempt (successful) to mute protest. They want people so freaked out and confused that they don’t know what to think anymore, about who does what and who exactly is in charge. Corporate Fascism is the most evil socio-political institution in human history, and the current one, inspired by the Nazi/I.G.Farben/Prescott Bush cabal, is really gaining steam.

    Other examples of “fake clues” in mainstream media – off the top of my head – are: The controlled demolition of skyscrapers at the finale of THE FIGHT CLUB, and the May 2001 episode of Fox’s THE LONE GUNMAN, which visualizes the attack on the World Trade Center with chilling accuracy.

    These “fake clues” didn’t just happen – they were scripted and okayed and produced – and they absolutely verify corporate conspiracy in all of these false-flag terror acts.

    The fact that these attacks are getting more frequent, and more horrendous, reveal that the rulers are becoming ever more bold in their efforts (successful again) to reinvent the world in their own image, and to have the human herd quivering in their boots over the rise of the dark night of corporate fascicm.

    “The Dark Night Rises…” get it?

  7. Timothy Madden says:

    I am not familiar with the local geography, but it seems to me that among the first questions to ask is: Given the plot of the movie, is there any legitimate reason for a map of that scale to be there? Is Sandy Hook just on the outskirts of New York (Gotham) City? or fairly deep inside Connecticut where there would be no reason for the police in the film to have a neighbourhood-scale map of a place relatively far removed?

    Also I think that bob klinck, above, is on the right track. What is really necessary is to do what is called “due diligence”, meaning to systematically question all essential and material aspects regardless of what “everybody knows”.

  8. Joe says:

    So there is a claim made that these coincidences are longshots. Many people who have no understanding of probability make this mistake. The brain functions to find connections and patterns and it is too good at its job, often finding them where no real connections exists. So if someone’s intent really was to uncover truth, the questions would be asked, “How improbable are these coincidences?” “On what basis do we conclude that they are longshots?” The answer, that they are not only not statistical longshots but not at all improbable, leads to truth but I suppose is less fun than the game you guys are playing here looking for “truth.”
    Val takes a little peak behind the curtain with his very good question. Is it really a statistical longshot that a guy who needed a map for a prop might buy it near his home? No, not even close to a longshot.

  9. DS says:

    The Getzinger connection actually offers a reasonable explanation as to why the words “Sandy Hook” appear on a map in the Batman film. Mr. Getzinger, being a resident of Newtown, might simply have been giving a “shout out” to his home town. This leaves us with a few strange coincidences but no truly compelling evidence of a wider plot.

  10. I don’t have the resources and sources in CT anymore. Jon, are you looking into possibilities of Getzinger involvement in the shooting? I am not afraid of backlash either.

  11. thenaturalfreehumanbeings says:

    Crowley, Alastair, is purported to be the “illegitimate” father of Barbara Bush… look it up! strange days!

  12. joeskate says:

    Another incredible coincidence is that in the Aurora theater, moviegoers saw two interesting previews. One was for Gangster Squad. This preview included a theater shooting. WB later removed it for future viewers. Another preview was for the new 007 skyfalls film. A city skyline is shown and big red letters on a building read Aurora.

  13. derek longley says:

    the coincidence is not that mr G used the map of sandy hook, but that he died in such a mysterious way….don´t you think??

  14. Dan S. says:

    There is a Sandy Hook that just about borders on New York City… but it is Sandy Hook, New Jersey. The Sandy Hook in Connecticut is a good deal further away. Prior to the shooting in December, most New Yorkers associated the name with the peninsula in New Jersey, few had heard of the place in Connecticut. Perhaps Getzinger used the name in the Batman movie because it amounted to a kind of pun – the name referred both to a place near his Connecticut home AND to a prominent geographical feature surrounding New York Harbor. The same applies to “Narrows” – the name of a place in Virginia where they actually closed a local school for what I think was a few days, out of fear of another shooting attack, and also a well-known part of New York Harbor, as in the name of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. He may have deliberately sought out a “Narrows” other than the one in New York and drawn a river that seems to match it on his map of Gotham City, in keeping with the idea that Gotham is sort of like New York, but is actually a different place. But the appearance of the name “Aurora” in the movie I can’t explain at all.

  15. Ted says:

    Jon, I think Hermies has it right here. I think people need to be careful with this. Many of us are aware of the CIA/Hollywood connection. I believe these connections are valid but how could anyone noticing and talking about them avoid being immediately referred to as a conspiracy nutball? Avoid taking the bait; my guess is it’s a very clever psyop.

  16. Ted says:

    Joe at 1:15 also makes a great point; his description is exactly what I too have always thought.

  17. Anon says:

    Is there anything fishy about Jessica Ghawi, who survived the Toronto shooting in June 2012, then only a month later, ends up dead in the Aurora shooting?

  18. Jack W says:

    What really is telling in that Batman Sandy Hook scene is the map matches The Connecticut Sandy Hook and THE school was circled!

  19. Anthony Rago says:

    The way I see it is simple: the real problem vis a vis pharmaceuticals (anti-depressents/anti-psychotics) to young children/pre-teens and young teens. They become more depressed and suicidal and can easily go over the edge. When you look at Sandy – He had to have been bullied growing up and with all those “legal” drugs swimming in his brain which was going through puberty as well and well there you go. The real problem: a mulit-billion dollar industry which won’t let the media report what the real problem is.
