Some of you may not want to believe this, but here's what I think I figured out. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18359766
Christopher Rodia doesn't own the car with the license plate 872-YEO. That may or may not be Adam Lanza's mother's car, or his car, or some other person's car. But it's not Rodia's.
I am from Connecticut. I have listened to the audio scanner stream that is used here, and I know that the guy who hosts this particular feed is monitoring several frequencies, including state police, Greenwich CT, New Canaan CT and Darien CT police.
The problem with this Youtube video is that it pieced together several audio feeds. It's not an actual tape of the radios being used at the school and only those radios. There is a lot going on, including calls unrelated to the shooting. Right before this, an EMS call goes out for a person with neck pain.
You have to listen a few minutes before the Christopher Rodia name is played.
A man with the same voice who calls out the Rodia info says at 10:00:33 a.m. (25:02 in Youtube video) "33 to Headquarters, motor vehicle stop."
He comes back on the radio at 10:01:12 a.m. (25:42 in Youtube video), in between shooting-related calls about getting "buses" aka ambulances, he says "722-ZHA, radar," meaning that the MV stop was by radar of a car with that plate.
He is then not heard from for a few minutes. Presumably this is when he is walking to the car and speaking to the driver.
At 10:06:13 a.m. (30:43) he's back, "33 to headquarters. Run the operator." Then it is hard to hear because of the encrypted radio transmissions the Newtown police are using. The feed of the Newtown police was edited together with the other feed, which is called "Fairfield County Police, Fire, and EMS" in Radioreference.
It's easier to hear what the officer making the traffic stop is saying if you listen to just the "Fairfield County Police, Fire and EMS" feed archive, which can be found in Radioreference's archives.
He says "Run the operator. He has a Florida license and out of Connecticut as well. Name is Rodia R-O-D-I-A, Christopher A. Date of Birth is August 6, 69."
Dispatcher responds "10-4."
So, the cop has the operator's driver's license. He's not running the plate. He wants the dispatcher to run the name through their computers to check for warrants, etc. What happens during the rest of the traffic stop isn't heard on the radio.
My assumption, based on listening to radio calls on this feed in the past, is he was stopped in one of the towns monitored on this feed, like New Canaan, Darien or Greenwich. That is because, as you can here at times on the tape, state cops call out their number and then "to G" or to "A" which is the barracks they are based out of. This cop calls the traffic stop into "headquarters."
So, my conclusion is Christopher Rodia, a sketchy guy with sketchy criminal connections, just happened to be stopped at the same time of the shooting in a nearby town, and at the same time a cop at the scene ran the plate of the car Lanza or whoever used to get to the scene and left a shotgun in.
If you weren't listening to a scanner feed archive and were instead listening to the actual radios being used at the scene, you wouldn't have made the connection between Rodia and the school, so there's no reason for him to be investigated, because both he and his car weren't there.
Take this as you will, but this satisfied for me what I agree was a very interesting/possibly sketchy situation with the car.
So then that brings up some questions:
1. Why don't you hear the radio call for Rodia's plates then, only his license? No, we don't hear his plates run at all... but ironically we hear someone else's plates being run at the right corresponding time? nah.
2. Why does the officer running Rodia's license say "Run the operator. party is here in front of me, suspected as well"?. What is he suspected of? Another coincidence?
3. Is it just another coincidence that we have a Chris Rodia questionably as the owner of the car found, and possibly at the scene, along with another Chris M*****ia also suspected at the scene?
4. Why do we hear someone say on the police call after this officer runs Rodias information "their brains will stop" (at :54 on this video)?

Perhaps our brains just stopped thanks to all these coincidences.
