In the late morning of December 2,2015, almost a week after the shooting at a Planned Parenthood Center in Colorado, 3 suspects opened fire and killed at least 14 people (at the time of this publishing) injuring over a dozen more.
In 2015, as well as in years preceding it, a trend has emerged almost across the board when mass shootings occur. The trend to some may be seen as nothing more than coincidence, while to others something more seems to be buried below the surface.
The trend is the constant occurrence of “active shooter drills” in the general vicinity of an actual mass shooting reported as an “active shooter” situation, or the same happening at the very same time a real shooting occurs.
The shooting in San Bernadino was no different.
According to The Victor Valley News, the Victor Valley College warned its students days before the shooting that there would be an “active shooter drill” taking place in Victorville. From the Press release—
According to the Victor Valley College press release, this drill is to prepare the school faculty, staff and students in preparation of an active shooter occurrence within our campus community as well as a real life simulation. “Conducting and planning for this exercise will allow us to assess our emergency preparedness and review the coordination and rapid response of both police agencies.” stated Chief Knight.
The drill was set for November 30th, which is a few days before the actual shooting in San Bernadino, however the fact remains that once again there is a link between an actual live shooting where dozens of people are injured or killed, and a drill that is supposedly meant to “prepare”or mimic a real scenario.
KTLV – The call first came in at 10:59 a.m. of multiple shots fired from the area of 1365 S. Waterman Ave. The Police Department’s SWAT team was training nearby and was suited, “ready to roll” and responded rapidly, Lt. Richard Lawhead said.
In most if not all of these “active shooter” situations, police or S.W.A.T. teams are almost always seemingly on standby and/or the media is quick to have some sort of special information or leads on suspects or their motives. Some would say these events seem to unfold or unravel like a Hollywood script, that is, when you begin to notice these mass shootings tend to have amazing similarities or comparisons.
If the number of dead victims remains at 14, the San Bernadino shooting will be the largest mass shooting since the Sandy Hook shooting on December 14, 2012, where 20 people were shot dead by Adam Lanza, according to official reports.
As more information develops regarding this mass shooting we are forced to once again stare down the barrel of truth, and try to understand why these similarities are nearly universal. Is it all just a coincidence, or is there more to the story? The only thing we can do is continue to question the official story and point out injustices or anomalies after events that shake the country.
