YouTube Viewers Skeptical

“Where were the police? Oh yeah, that’s right”

A “chilling animation” produced by the Broward Sheriff’s Office was presented at an April 2018 meeting of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission.

The video, which resembles a 1970s era video game, claims to “recreate shooter Nikolas Cruz’s actions inside the school on February 14, 2018.”

The main problem with the attempt to portray the alleged mass shooting’s details in this way is that the Parkland High School is a state-of-the-art facility located in an affluent community. Therefore, the building was equipped with closed-circuit television monitoring wherein a verifiable record of the actual event is readily available.

If the authorities seek to allay concern and skepticism toward the shooting the entirety of that footage should be first subjected to independent forensic verification, then released to the public.

A sample of the 2,100 remarks from the YouTube video’s comments section suggests the heightened public skepticism such events are met with today. Local law enforcement and their federal handlers only exacerbate this skepticism with such poorly-conceived public relations stunts. (Click image to enlarge.)

  1. Well, looks like the Broward County Sheriff’s Office has screwed up in reverse. Cruz should be set free immediately since the only evidence against him so far is the brutal slaying of some tiny dots.
    They obviously have the wrong guy.
    They should put out an APB, letting all cars know to be on the lookout for a tiny black dot.
    I can’t believe that they’ve been sitting on this dastardly dot evidence for three months and they’ve had the wrong guy in jail this entire time.
    Why wasn’t this evidence forwarded to the dot division of the dot police? Don’t they know that a serious dot crime has taken place at the MSD high school for dots?
    This is a dot outrage. Some dots need to organize a dot march.
    March for our Dots.

    Okay. I’m done now.

  2. It’s a bizarro world. Using children to guilt us into disarmament over a series of highly questionable if not laughable simulated terror events. If you want to hear how a real, bonafide mass shooting goes down look no further than a case that happened a mile and a half from my place in Vail, Colorado in 2009. Our Police Chief in Vail, Colorado was just in the newspaper talking about red flag laws.

    That means Police can take your guns before you commit a crime if you are reported as suicidal or make threats of violence. The Chief sited the need for Red Flag Laws using the Columbine case and the infamous case of Rossi Moreau, a troubled Viet Nam Vet who murdered Dr. Gary Kitching from Carbondale at the Sand Bar, and shot a friend of mine – Jim Lindley – four times. Rossi was thrown out of the bar for being combative with other patrons. No sooner had they ushered him outside, Rossi pulled out a military issue 45 and shot Manager Justin wounding him. Then Rossi went back inside and shot Jim critically and excecuted the good Doctor. Jim miraculously survived four 45 caliber rounds at close range. It was all on security video played to the court to change of venue court in Georgetown, Colorado.

    Rossi was arrested, convicted and given a life sentence. I have no doubt that prescription psych meds played some role in this crime. The off-the-wall things Rossi said before the crime sounded very similar to someone else I know who’s been on prescription psych meds for decades. One minute they are friendly and cogent and five minutes later they say bizarre things that offend, frighten and repel people. Exactly what happened at the Sand Bar acording to several eye witness accounts.

    Rossi’s guns were previously taken away by Vail Police long before the bar shooting. His offense was blasting off some rounds outside his housing complex as I rememebr the story. A Judge later ordered the guns returned to Rossi according to our Police Chief.

    When I got introduced to Rossi 20 years prior to the shooting, I was given the old “just between you and me” scenario of “he’s a Viet Nam Vet and he’s got problems, so beware”. I only knew Rossi casually as another frequent coffee shop patron.

    I think the RED FLAG LAW is a good idea in principal, but in practice, it will be abused by law enforcement. How much is the only question in my mind. Take a look at asset forfeiture laws designed to fight organized crime. It sounded good when the politicians sold it, but in practice it’s carte blanche for highway robbery. Police all over the US have confiscated cash, vehicles and property without a conviction and often no criminal charge. That’s no where near the original intent of the law. It’s become a billion dollar cash cow.

    A Colorado man’s $50,000 casino winnings were “confiscated” by a Humbolt County, Nevada Sheriff’s Deputy. The Cop was clearly heard on dash cam saying the man could leave with his car or his money, but he wasn’t leaving with both. The Deputy also suggested the Colorado Man just forget about appealing the cash confiscation; that it would cost him more than the money taken. Our Colorado boy’s crime? Being lucky enough to strike it rich in Vegas. but unlucky enough to be pulled over by for doing 78 in a 75mph zone. The Cop posted a picture of himself posing with the stolen money on Facebook. He was proud of being a thief with a badge. I believe our lucky gambler got his cash back and this fine example of policehood “resigned”.
