Perhaps Not All “Failures” in the Florida School Shooting Were What We Think

One thing is certain. Every time there is a mass shooting or a mass killing event, there are always more questions left unanswered than answered to most people’s satisfaction. It is no different with events in Parkland, Florida.

Let’s take a look at a USA Today article written by Glenn Reynolds called “Florida shooting yet another government failure to keep us safe.

Before we completely blame the government for failures, isn’t it time to point out, again, that there is a huge failure of the public to look to government to keep us safe? Enough said.

Have we turned on our self-appointed “heroes” in law enforcement? It seems that after 9-11 cops and first responders could do no wrong…with a few exceptions.

Glenn Reynolds rightfully, in my opinion, describes all the failures that took place before, during, and after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass murder in Parkland, Florida. He writes: “From the FBI, to local law enforcement, to the schools, everyone failed. There was failure early, there was failure in the middle, and there was failure late. And no one has taken responsibility.”

It’s difficult to deny any of this. But let me raise some questions that might hold meaning to what is precisely going on that few know about and the majority refuses to consider.

Reynolds presents to readers, whether intended or not, a common theme. “We have more government, at all levels, than we’ve ever had before. Yet failures like this keep happening. The FBI, after all, missed the Tsarnaevs (who committed the Boston Marathon bombing) despite being warned by the Russian government. It missed the 9/11 attacks even though it was investigating Zacarias Moussaoui — agents investigating Moussaoui hit so many roadblocks that they joked that Osama bin Laden must have had a mole in the Bureau HQ. And, of course, the San Bernardino shooters and Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen escaped the net as well.

Is the FBI really this incompetent? I thought they were everyone’s “heroes” looking out for you.

As Reynolds points out in his writing, “…Then, when Cruz finally began shooting up the school, the failures became even more outrageous. A Broward County sheriff’s deputy — weirdly, the same Deputy Scot Peterson who apparently ignored the Instagram threat and also refused to cooperate with investigators — was on the scene, but cowered in the parking lot instead of taking action.”

He also adds something from CNN: “Then CNN reported that not only did Peterson stay out of the building, three other deputies hid behind cars instead of intervening.”

Again I ask, I thought these guys were all “heroes” to you?

But, seriously. I have never thought it was ever a good idea that we, in honest attempts to prevent living in a police state, should idolize those in uniform with guns and authority that can make our lives miserable in the wink of an eye. With this thought, I must say I would be one of the last to defend law enforcement.

Having said so, are we to believe that 4 police officers were afraid to enter the building and that 3 of them “hid behind cars?” I don’t buy that story. Cops may be many things to many people but generally speaking, they are not chicken to walk into a battle scene. With probably the rare exception, cops become cops for the very nature of what they do. They love a position of authority over others and relish the opportunity to live up to their billing of “hero.”

If I’m correct, then why didn’t they enter the building and/or try to do something to stop the further bloodshed?

As more stories surface, for whatever value they have, we hear the same things we have heard in the mass killings noted above: Officers waited outside; ordered to stand down; eye-witnesses claiming there was more than one gunman; one student claimed to walk out of the school with alleged murderer Nicholas Cruz, etc.

Perhaps all those stories are a bunch of bull pucky…or they are all true – perhaps some are true. We will never know.

So at least can we ask the obvious (to me) questions?

Question One – Is our FBI so inept that they have nothing more to show for our billions in tax dollars than failure after failure? It seems they can report they found a fly that came to America from Russia on the ass end of a horse, programmed to “fix” our elections, but they can’t properly investigate all the events that led up to the mass murders named above?

I don’t buy that horse manure either.

So, a combination of supposed chicken cops in Parkland, Florida and an FBI so incompetent it probably fails to keep toilet paper on hand in their offices, we are being told is a simple failure. Hmmm, I wonder.

Question Two – Who knew what, when, and from whom did they know it? Did the FBI, as with all the other mass killing events, know beforehand and/or were a part of those events? Were the “chicken” cops only doing what they were told to do because someone higher up was also under orders?

Question Three – If this was a conspiracy of some sort, what might a reason be? The simple answer would be guns. I have contended for many years that the only and last roadblock to total tyranny and a dictatorial rule is guns. I’ve also said they still aren’t in a position to simply take our guns from us. Instead, they must find other ways, little by little.

Remember? It was on September 11, 2012, when “terrorists” attacked the U.S. Diplomat Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, killing the ambassador and others. What was the first thing out of the mouths of our corrupt government terrorists? Remember? It was a video said to be mocking Islam and that “provoked” an attack. I thought we learned a lesson from that but evidently not.

What was the first thing out of the mouths of many after the Parkland, Florida shooting? Damned the NRA! All attention was deflected onto the NRA, that iconic false strongarm of the Second Amendment. The NRA provoked an innocent attack on students. Nothing else is to blame. It was a choreographed deflection as was the video used in the Benghazi attack.

Question Four – How many more of these events will it take before you will either become a complete slave with no rights left to you, or you will demand answers to uncomfortable questions?

If nothing more than choosing to take the easy way out and accept the all-around failures of governments theory, then people might want to consider who it is that they choose to make their idols and heroes.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Wendy Bell Firing from WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh Criticized by Black Conservative Leaders

Press Release from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

Washington, D.C. – Spokesmen for the national black leadership group Project 21 are critical of Hearst Corporation’s WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh for firing anchor Wendy Bell for comments about a March 9 multiple murder in the Pittsburgh suburb of Wilkinsburg.

Bell wrote, in part:

…There’s no nice words to write when a coward holding an AK-47 hoses down a family and their friends sharing laughs and a mild evening on a back porch in Wilkinsburg. There’s no kind words when 6 people are murdered. When their children have to hide for cover and then emerge from the frightened shadows to find their mother’s face blown off or their father’s twisted body leaking blood into the dirt from all the bullet holes. There’s just been nothing nice to say. And I’ve been dragging around this feeling like a cold I can’t shake that rattles in my chest each time I breathe and makes my temples throb. I don’t want to hurt anymore. I’m tired of hurting.

You needn’t be a criminal profiler to draw a mental sketch of the killers who broke so many hearts two weeks ago Wednesday. I will tell you they live within 5 miles of Franklin Avenue and Ardmore Boulevard and have been hiding out since in a home likely much closer to that backyard patio than anyone thinks. They are young black men, likely teens or in their early 20s. They have multiple siblings from multiple fathers and their mothers work multiple jobs. These boys have been in the system before. They’ve grown up there. They know the police. They’ve been arrested. They’ve made the circuit and nothing has scared them enough. Now they are lost. Once you kill a neighbor’s three children, two nieces and her unborn grandson, there’s no coming back. There’s nothing nice to say about that.

Hearst Television, owner of WTAE-TV, told the Associated Press that Bell’s comments were “inconsistent with the company’s ethics and journalistic standards,” and that’s why Bell was fired.

“Ms. Bell is a victim of a growing, politically-correct phenomena called micro-aggression that stifles free speech. She absolutely should not have been fired for privately expressing her opinion,” said Project 21’s Niger Innis, a civil rights activist. “The fact is what she asserted about the horrific murders in Pennsylvania reflects the thoughts of many just too afraid to say it.”

“Among this President’s greatest failures was his refusal to use the bully pulpit to discuss the self-imposed genocide occurring in Black communities nationwide,” continued Innis, who also serves as the national spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), one of the nation’s most famous and influential civil rights organizations. “Black-on-Black murder is second only to abortion in executing a black population elimination agenda that even a Klan member would not dream of.”

“Ms. Bell’s understandably passionate reaction to the animalistic massacre in Pittsburgh has inspired the PC mob to metaphorically lynch her. Until the predators that committed this abomination are arrested and convicted, we will not know if Ms. Bell was 100% on target with her belief about the murders. But, right or wrong, Ms. Bell has bravely exposed a much bigger picture, that being the self-imposed genocide taking place in Black America,” Innis concluded.

“There are very few places where people are more relaxed and unaware than a backyard barbecue with close friends. So this is slaughter of people merely enjoying Pennsylvania’s unseasonably warm weather shocked the community,” said Project 21’sBishop Council Nedd II, rector of St. Alban’s Anglican Church in Pine Grove Mills, Pennsylvania.

“How do you respond when something so wanton happens? How do you respond when it sinks in that you could have been the one so easily struck by this indiscriminate fire? People respond from their gut, and from their heart with raw emotion, and that’s what Wendy Bell did,” said Nedd, who also serves as an elected Pennsylvania State Constable.

“If Wiz Khalifa or Jerome Bettis came out and said exactly what Wendy Bell said, no one would have given the comments a second glance. Ms. Bell should have realized that such comments coming from her might be criticized,” Nedd continued. “However, the real focus and the community outrage should be focused solely on the craven shooters. Why is there seemingly more attention on what was said about the shootings rather than the shooting itself?”

“The sheriff in the county just north of mine has just established a posse for such events. That’s the type of response that I would want to if there was a slaughter in my community,” Nedd concluded.

Project 21 has been a leading voice of black conservatives since its founding in 1992. Its volunteer members come from all walks of life. Contributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated, and may be earmarked for the use of Project 21.
