As the Florida State University shooting story continues to unfold, more questions emerge on several fronts. The following video examines whether the November 20 shooting was a staged event, complete with repeated “Tweets” from the account of one Blair Stokes, an intern at Tallahassee-based “behavioral change” and “crisis communications” public relations firm SalterMitchell.
The video also makes note of recently-installed FSU President John Thrasher who, as a longtime aggressive Republican Party politico, has close ties to both Florida state politics and major news media. The FSU Board of Trustees appointed Thrasher as FSU President earlier this year despite strong objection of the university’s faculty and students.
Finally, apart from a detailed profile of alleged shooter Myron Mays, forensic evidence of the shooting itself has yet to be satisfactorily revealed, as the video suggests.
