Second Law Enforcement Officer in Disbelief Over School Shooting

North Miami Police Officer Ericson Harrell

By James F. Tracy

Alongside the Facebook posts and unusual death of Broward County Deputy Jason Fitzsimons a second South Florida law enforcement officer is using social media to publicly question the February 14, 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

Over the past several weeks Ericson Harrell of the North Miami Police Department has taken to Facebook to share ideas and insights with like-minded critical thinkers on complex issues and events. He’s been asking important questions about the Parkland massacre that are making corporate media heavily invested in the narrative increasingly uncomfortable. As a result several regional news outlets have lashed out at the skeptic, prompting his employer to open an internal investigation of Harrell’s potential “thought crimes.”

The day after the Valentine’s Day shooting, for example, the North Miami police officer pondered in one post,

“What if the cops went into school and shot and kill[ed] some students?! Would they be forthcoming? Lawsuits would help to find out.”

Elsewhere Harrell observes the more-than-subtle psychological warfare being waged on the public through the prevalent use of terms like “active shooter,” to gear individuals toward anticipating an increasingly militarized society.

In another post he references the April 3 YouTube campus shooting  in California to suggest how the bizarre scenario could conceivably be used by the state to clamp down on online speech.

Being a police officer himself, Harrell has some thoughtful takes on mass shootings–some that major news media might learn a good deal from. This is of course assuming such organizations are  genuinely concerned with producing journalism.

In a February 19 dispatch, quoted in the Miami Herald, “Harrell questioned why some mass shooters have chosen to terrorize more affluent cities like Parkland. ‘Have you noticed,'” Harrell begins, how

these “mass school shootings” occur in wealthy communities?” he asked. “Then afterwards millions of dollars are dumped into them. Payoff money??”

This is something we at MemoryHoleBlog began to repeatedly question by late 2013, when the Obama administration began shoveling large amounts of money to communities playing host to such incidents.

In a Feb. 21 post, according to the Miami Herald, Officer Harrell  asked why those being accused of playing roles as “crisis actors” in made-for-television shooting aftermaths “like Cameron Kasky, haven’t brought their accusers to court.

“Why hasn’t anybody accused of being a crisis actor filed a single defamation lawsuit?” he said, quoting another Facebook page. “Could it be because truth is an absolute defense?”

Elsewhere, Harrell notes how a recent series produced by Vice Media, an organization touting itself as critically-minded and “independent,” uses Saul Alinsky-style methods of appeal by turning the rhetorical table on those analyzing the Sandy Hook massacre event.

Harrell’s recent posts, such as those below, also suggest support of the US Constitution’s overwhelmingly popular Second Amendment.

In contrast to the virtual news blackout of Fitzsimons’ death,  corporate news media have seized upon and publicized Harrell’s critical posts and workplace fallout. Accompanying this reportage is a resounding chorus of incredulity over his remarks (e.g. here, here, here, here, here, here, and here) .

A particularly inflammatory April 7 article published in the Miami Herald pits Harrell against Jeff Kasky, the parent of “shooting survivor” and gun control “student activist” Cameron Kasky. The two spent roughly a year together at policy academy, according to Kasky, who recalls Harrell as a “‘terrific leader’ and a brother.”

“This guy knows me personally,” Kasky said. “How can he possibly think that this is true?” Ominously, however, Kasky states that Harrell is “not the Eric that I know.” In 2013 Kasky claims to have “reached out to Harrell” through Facebook.

Soon after, he said, it was apparent Harrell had become a subscriber to the “conspiracy theory subculture” that believes 9/11 was an “inside job” and the government is controlling the weather.

As a result Kasky “deleted Harrell as a friend. “‘I haven’t been in touch with him for years,'” Kasky said.

Because of the recent media attention to Harrell’s online speech his employer has reassigned him to desk duty and placed him under investigation. Recent posts to his Facebook page over the past several months, including those addressing the Parkland event, are now private.

The Sun-Sentinel reports that Harrell was previously reprimanded by his employer for purportedly inordinate social media use at the workplace, including visits to “conspiracy theory-related websites during work hours.” In 2013 Harrell was also arrested for wearing a Guy Fawkes mask during a public protest. According to the Sentinel. in 2013 Plantation Florida police arrested Harrell,

saying he refused to take off a mask during a one-man public protest against Obamacare on the sidewalk. Officers asked him repeatedly to remove his smiling, mustached Guy Fawkes mask … The Broward State Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute Harrell on charges of obstructing traffic and violating an anti-mask law. In dismissing the charges, a prosecutor concluded the anti-mask law was vague, and that Harrell would argue a constitutional rights violation.

Contrary to the flurry of press reports waxing indignant on Harrell’s social media commentary, a brief interview with activist group We Are Change (below) depicts the North Miami policeman as a fairly mild-mannered and down-to-earth guy.

As John Milton once famously observed, “They who have put out the people’s eyes reproach them of their blindness.” In this vein Ericson Harrell’s predicament demonstrates how an almost entirely corrupt and duplicitous American news media operate hand-in-glove with government agencies to flagrantly promote mass casualty event narratives while using the semblance of professionalism to legitimize and instill such narratives in the public mind. In this way major news media are abusing the severely limited public trust they still possess.

When honest citizens like Harrell are fittingly incredulous and express rudimentary analytical skills in the light of day the same news media mobilize to denigrate such speech through coordinated negative publicity that they know will threaten the targeted individual’s livelihood. More than ever, the ideals behind the First Amendment are being hijacked and squandered by those who traffic in censorship, lies and falsehood.

8 thought on “Miami Police Officer Under Attack For Questioning Parkland Narrative”
  1. Wow, what a hero Officer Harrel is. I hope somebody offers him a really good job when they fire him. Ahhh, if only the rest of his department had stood up and shown themselves as men, too. But I’m dreaming. It’s a little too early for that.

    And yet I’m optimistic. The entire media had to pretend to be against Trump in order to get him elected. Just a little more patience and more people will recognize these hoaxes.

  2. the government in fact has been doing weather modification, there have been funding bills in Congress, Naomi Wolf has been all over it, since the first bill was found.She in now on twitter, since they have pretty much killed the reach of her facebook page. Where we used to have daily talks about things going on . We used to research things there on a mass scale, with the 150,000 followers. it appears they have in fact been spraying shit into the air for some time now, another conspiracy theory come true.

  3. I never thought of this but he said maybe the police shot up some of the kids, it didnt make any sense to me that 4 police were there and not a single one entered the building. Making that statement would be cheaper than pay law suits for shooting some of the kids. In that night club shooting it was pointed out by the Judge Nep that the FBI report clearly said that know one inside the building died untill FBI entered the building. The media on the other hand report the shooter was killing people all night before they entered.

  4. When I showed my roommate the press conference of Wayne “Carver” the medical examiner from Sandy Hoax infamy, he did not see what we saw… someone that was no where near 20 autopsies on children. He chalked up Wayne’s zany antics to nervousness. He is typical of the brain washed masses with no discernment for bad acting verses real life. Try this my friends… rewatch Carver’s video again with a sticky over Wayne’s face. Then watch the reactions of the cops flanking him and freeze frame often as Wayne’s whacky answers come flowing. Insert your own thought bubbles of the police. Mine would go… “I can’t believe they picked this Bozo for this role, I can barely restrain myself from laughing”. You can do the same thing with the Parkland coverage. There was one that really stood out of a woman supposedly grieving the loss of her daughter on CNN just a day or two after the event. The dour expression of the Newscaster looked painted on as she stoically listened to this overacted tirade as the supposed grieving woman shed not a single tear. You could insert the following thought bubble: “Oh Lord, can’t they get better actors for this farce?” Then when they had a newscast panel discussion with a different woman who lost a daughter and six of her Social Justice Warriors (SJWs). SJWs now get a uniform consisting of tight fitting designer torn jeans and a matching T-shirt. Of particular interest is that the woman who’s daughter was just savagely murdered. She did not break down crying once. That right there should send up red flags to anyone with discernment. My grandmother would break down at the mere mention of my dead uncle’s name who drowned 10 years prior. The other thing about crying, it’s contagious among girls. At the same press appearance one of the girls broke down crying with actual tears without triggering the mother of the dead girl to cry as well. That tells me the girl crying was convinced this was a real event while the mother is unmoved. It made me doubt the mother is that of an actual murder victim. You can see the same ridiculous acting with reporter Don Lemon’s group interview with the Grandchildren of the slain pastor of the Charleston Church shooting. These kids just experienced the unimaginable shock of grandad being gunned down in church and yet you could describe their countenance as nothing short of euphoric. Youtube has buried this video because it is such an embarrassment to the official story. See if you can find it, I can’t. These kids were so glowing with positivity it was revolting considering the circumstances. Then they formed the heart sign and said “hate won’t win”…. oh please!

  5. Officer Ericson Harrell is way above some of these ignorant bigots who surround him in Florida. Here are a few documented examples: IN MEMORIAM — DEAN BURK (1904-1988), FLUORIDE, 22:3, 1989 July
    by H.L. McKinney, University of Kansas; Lawrence, Kansas
    “Both science and the humanities have lost a major intellect with the recent death of Dean Burk, October 6, 1988, at the age of 84, Burk was born March 21, 1904, in Oakland, California, the son of Frederic Burk, who was President of what is now San Francisco State University. He entered the University of California Farm School at Davis at the age of 15 and studied agriculture. A year later, he transferred to the University of California at Berkeley, where he received his B.S. in Entomology in 1923. Four years later at the age of 23, he earned a Ph.D., in Plant Nutrition and Chemistry (1).
    He continued his advanced studies as a fellow, National Research Council/International Education Board (1927-1929), successively at University College, University of London (with A.V. Hill, a Nobel laureate), the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Biology in Berlin, and Harvard University. In Germany he had investigated nitrogen fixation with Otto Meyerhof and also befriended Otto Warburg, both Nobel Prize winners, and their students.
    He maintained a forty-year friendship with Warburg, “my greatest mentor,” and perhaps the world’s greatest biochemist, who worked with him in Bethesda, Maryland, on photosynthesis in 1949. From 1950 up until 1969, the year before Warburg’s death, Burk spent most summers in Berlin and translated many of Warburg’s “most important contributions on cancer and photosynthesis….” (2). In 1953, he became a Foreign Member of Warburg’s Institute.”
    “In January 1975, shortly after retiring from the NCI, Burk spoke to the National Health Federation about Laetrile. At that time he first met John Yiamouyiannis, a Ph.D. in biochemistry who had joined the NHF as Science Director and who was a formidable combatant in the fight against fluoridation.”
    “Burk and his co-authors therefore pleaded: “In light of this conclusion, we urge the governments of civilized countries of the world to bring about a prompt end to artificial fluoridation of public water supplies” (27). Tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths — at one time he estimated about 40,000 in the U.S.A. alone — would thereby be averted (28). Saving lives was a primary concern of Burk, and he thought his work on fluoridation was the most important he had done during his life (29). There is no doubt that one of his most personally fulfilling moments was experienced when he received the news that he was largely responsible for the termination of fluoridation in the Netherlands (3), despite erroneous claims to the contrary (31), and his impact in Australia was widely reported in the press there (32).
    Dr. Dean Burk musician, artist, scientist, sage — lived a rich and valuable life. he published more than 250 scientific articles. He probed abstruse mysteries; he proposed profound answers. he devoted his life to science and mankind. he made an indelible mark where he has passed. The world is infinitely richer having known such a gentle, brave man of genius, industry, and altruism.”
    Officer Harrell you are absolutely correct that flouride is dangerous to human health and must be removed from public water supplies as the genius level biochemist above the late Dean Burk, Ph.D. proved with another genius John Yiamouyiannis, Ph.D. a vigorous fighter for removal of this poison from the water supplies; tragically he died at an early age.
    Another very important point you are absolutely correct about is that Israel, not Muslims did 9/11/01 with the aid of traitors Bush, Cheney and some four star generals who did not lift a finger to defend the nation that fateful day. There is a mountain of evidence and facts to prove this. Here is one article of many:
    • “Larry Silverstein – is a Jewish American businessman from New York. Silverstein obtained a 99 year lease on the entire world trade center complex on 24 July, 2001. [3] The towers were in fact close to worthless, being filled with asbestos, [4] yet Silverstein “felt a compelling urge to own them”. Silverstein had breakfast in “Windows on the World” restaurant (located in North Tower 107th Floor) every morning. [5] but broke this routine on the morning of 11 September 2001. Silverstein’s two children, who also worked in the WTC, were also absent from work that day. Larry Silverstein was paid a little over $4.5 Billion in insurance money as a result of the destruction of the WTC complex. [6] Silverstein was on personal friendship terms with Zionist media-magnate Rupert Murdoch, former Israeli president Ariel Sharon, as well as Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Silverstein was such good friends with Netanyahu that, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz he would speak with him on the phone every sunday. [7]
    • Video – Where was Larry Silverstein on 9/11?”
    Unfortunately much of our government and the media today are nothing but pathological liars and cheaters and con artists. Every scientist wears the phrase “Conspiracy Theorist” as a badge of honor because proposed theories of processes or unsolved problems are what all physicists and scientists do every day. The successful choice is the one that agrees with the experimental facts and evidence.
    Mr. Harrell should be given a promotion not be demonized by those who are ignorant of the truth and the means truth may be discovered. Perhaps Officer Harrell should be the new Police Chief of the North Miami Police Department while the existing ignorant bigot is fired as he or she should be. Stop allowing yourself and love ones to be brainwashed with lies by lying media. Drop your TV into the nearest dumpster as we did about 25 years ago. You might gain back some lost brain cells.

    1. By the way the alleged “Sandy Hook School Shooting” has been thoroughly studied and convincingly shown to be a massive hoax. The most important researcher in this field is professor James H. Fetzer, Ph.D., former distinguished chaired professor at the University of Minnesota one of the top universities in the country and the world. He and a number of other distinguished authors wrote a book “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook”. It was available on Amazon for about a month and received mostly 5 star reviews but Jeff Bezos, who owns Amazon, and even graduated Summa Cum Laude from Princeton University, but evidently believes in censoring great enlightening books like this one. It is however available for free download.

      Many anomalies were noticed about this fake event such as the school was not even a functioning school and pictures exist of the perps staging it the day before. Of course the lying media has refused to acknowledge the truth and continues perpetuating their lies about this phony event to promote the gun control agenda. The media in America today are an expletive deleted obscene disgrace beginning with the Sun Sentinel in Florida which published hit pieces on professor James F. Tracy who had the guts and intelligence to question the many anomalies about Sandy Hook too but lost his job because even the administrators of FAU are liars just like their counterparts in the lying media today. FAU should be prohibited to call itself a “university” because they represent only evil not knowledge, truth and understanding, the main goals of any true university such as the University of California, Berkeley where I graduated from in physics in 1961. Its motto is “Let There Be Light”. The motto of FAU should be “Let There be Night” or “Let There be Darkness all the time”.

  6. Ericson Harrell seems like a good man. Unfortunately he’s defending a political settlement, the US Constitution, that has proven to be no defense against tyranny and genocide after genocide, currently White genocide – for those to whom it matters.

    The battle is not for the Constitution, it’s elsewhere or it’s nowhere.

    One place the battle sure is, is against White genocide.
