Mass School Shooting Staged for SWAT Training (29 August 2013)

East Bridgewater Police Sergeant Michael W. McLaughlin scripted a large scale active shooter training scenario last week at the old East Bridgewater High School for the South Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council’s SWAT team. The training exercise was staged to simulate realistic scenes in preparation for any real scenarios.

       As the script reads, John Smith—a fictitious 18-year-old student created by Sgt. McLaughin— was still reeling from a break-up with his ex-girlfriend, a junior at East Bridgewater High School. So Smith decided to teach her a lesson. Shortly before 7 a.m., he detonated a home-made pipe bomb at the school’s entrance, seriously injuring a school bus driver and two students, then he shot and killed the school resource officer and another student.

       Within seconds, the high school senior was inside firing his .22 caliber revolver, leaving a trail of carnage behind him as he made his way down the halls, finally barricading himself in a classroom and taking seven students hostage. The scene was realistically gruesome, complete with pools of fake blood and Hollywood-grade prosthetics.

       The gunman, played by 16-year-old Brett Harvey (son of the school resource officer), walked side by side with McLaughlin, who launched a non-lethal stun grenade to mimic a pipe bomb explosion, then fired rounds of blanks as they made their way down the hallways where volunteers had already taken their places as wounded or dead victims. Harvey and seven other volunteer teens waited in the former school’s art room for police to arrive.

      The exercise took place a day after a man armed with an assault rifle entered an elementary school in Decatur, Ga., and exchanged shots with police before surrendering. The Georgia incident set a dark tone for the start of the school year and highlights the need for more, and increasingly realistic, mass shooting simulations. The sentiment is in line with President Obama’s directive after the school shootings last December in Newtown, Conn., that the FBI help train local police on how to deal with mass shootings.

       Julanne Joubert, 48, watched in stunned silence as a fake bullet wound was applied to the head of her 14-year-old daughter, Kaitlyn, before the drill began. Kaitlyn was already covered in fake blood from a wound glued to her left arm. Joubert said she worries about school shootings, especially after Newtown and last week’s incident in Georgia.

       The training afforded SWAT team members the chance to practice techniques, such as ramming locked doors open and using non-lethal ammunition, without having to worry about damaging school property, McLaughlin said. The old East Bridgewater High School is being prepared for demolition, and students will attend the new high school this fall.

       Once he got the go-ahead last year from town officials to use the old high school building, McLaughlin worked with the Southeastern Regional Planning and Economic Development District to secure a US Department of Homeland Security grant to pay for a wound-simulation kit, complete with fake blood and prostheses mimicking shotgun wounds, burns, and deep gashes.

       The drill took place on a regularly scheduled training day for SWAT team members, who were kept in the dark about the extent of the scenario so that it was “more visually overwhelming than they ever had before,’’ McLaughlin said.
“It’s going to feel a little bit more realistic for them, so that if they do ever come into this situation, then they’ll be better prepared to act in the manner in which they should, and not freeze up,’’ McLaughlin said, adding that part of the shock value was using local kids as actors.

The exercise — the shootings and hostage situation — lasted over two hours, as local police, SWAT team members, and negotiators from the Plymouth County Sheriff’s Department ultimately talked the culprit into releasing the hostages and surrendering.

Dr. Eowyn: Florida Valentine's Day School: Shooting Anomalies and Confessed Shooter

Dr. Eowyn

On the afternoon of February 14, 2018, Valentine's Day, America was subjected to another mass school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, metropolitan Miami, Florida.

We are told that 17 people were killed and 15 more were taken to hospitals. The alleged perpetrator, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student of the high school, was arrested shortly after the shooting and charged with seventeen counts of premeditated murder. He confessed to the shooting, according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office. (Wikipedia)



Almost immediately, the Alternative Media took note of certain anomalies -- things that don't fit which are signatures of false-flag mass trauma incidents:

(1) As with past false-flag incidents (2013 Boston Marathon bombings), the Valentine's Day shooting coincided with a drill. Independent investigative journalist Laura Loomer tweeted that 15-year-old student Will Gilroy said students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were told there would be an active shooter drill at their school this week. "He said that's why students thought they were participating in a drill when they were evacuating."

(2) As with past false-flag shootings (August 2012 Sikh Temple killing, December 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre, 2016 Orlando gay club shooting), there are eye-witness reports of more than one shooter.  

Alexa Miednik believes there was another shooter. She said she was walking with accused suspect Nikolas Cruz after she had heard shots being fired, and told Cruz she was glad “it wasn’t him” who was doing the shooting.

This female student also said there was more than one shooter:  

(3) As in the case of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting (see “Sandy Hook deception: Associated Press stories & photos predate the massacre”), there were also predated news reports (February 12 & 13) of the Florida Valentine's Day school shooting of February 14 (source: James Fetzer):

(4) As with the Sandy Hook Elementary School (SHES), the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School too will be demolished (Miami Herald) all the better to erase any and all evidence that might point to the shooting being a false-flag incident. Will Parkland also get a multi-million dollar freebie to rebuild Douglas High School into a swanky, state-of-the-art school like the new SHES?


Who is Nikolas Cruz?

This is what we know about the Nikolas Cruz, who has confessed to the school shooting:  

(1) The FBI had been warned about Nikolas Cruz:

On September 24, 2017, a person who identified himself as Nikolas Cruz wrote a comment on a video of YouTuber Ben Bennight:
"I'm going to be a professional school shooter."
Bennight, 36, who is a Mississippi bail bondsman, immediately alerted the FBI and emailed the bureau's Mississippi field office a screenshot of Cruz's comment. Bennight also flagged the comment to YouTube, which removed it from the video.

Bennight said FBI agents responded "immediately": "They came to my office the next morning and asked me if I knew anything about the person. I didn't. They took a copy of the screenshot and that was the last I heard from them."

On the day of the shooting after Cruz had been taken into custody, FBI agents visited Bennight and pressed for more information about Nikolas Cruz. Bennight said he didn't know who Cruz was, and the agents left.

At a press conference the next morning, the FBI confirmed that it had received and looked into a tip about the "professional school shooter" comment on Bennight's YouTube channel, but could not uncover any details from the account. Special agent Robert Lasky told reporters: "No other information was included in the comment, which would indicate a time, location, or true identity of the person who made the comment. The FBI conducted database reviews, checks, but was unable to further identify the person who made the comment." (BuzzFeed)  

(2) Nikolas Cruz has given every sign of being psychologically disturbed and yet nothing was done about it -- as in the case of the Orlando gay club shooter -- while schools punish boys for chewing a pop tart into the shape of a gun, making a gun sign with their fingers, or playing with a toy-gun in their home, while police actually arrested a dad for a drawing of him holding a gun:
  • Cruz was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year for disciplinary reasons.
  • Classmates, relatives, and neighbors describe Cruz as a troubled "loner" who often talked about guns and flaunted his obsession with weapons on his social media accounts.
  • Math teacher Jim Gard told the Miami Herald that Cruz had previously been identified as a potential threat to other students. (BuzzFeed)
  • Cruz had been treated in a "mental health" clinic. (Washington Post)
(3) Like countless other mass shooters, we are told Nikolas Cruz was on mind-altering, psychiatric medications (Natural News).  

(3) Nikolas Cruz is NOT associated with a white nationalist militia:

The day after the shooting, the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) claimed that they were told by Jordan Jereb, the leader for the white supremacist paramilitary group Republic of Florida (ROF) that Nikolas Cruz had participated in one or more training drills with his group.

However, Leon County law enforcement told the Tallahassee Democrat that they could not find information linking Cruz to the Republic of Florida Militia. Members of the 4chan AltRight discussion forum then admitted that all of the claims were false and were part of an elaborate attempt to troll a network news reporter and other media outlets.

(4) On the contrary, what evidence we have points to Nikolas Cruz being a radical leftist and a registered Democrat.

He is photographed in a red, hammer-and-sickle t-shirt with images of Stalin, Castro, Lenin, and Mao:

UPDATE (Feb. 17): The above pic is not Nikolas Cruz. A Twitter account, pretending to be a California (Laguna Beach) Antifa group, had posted the pic as that of Cruz. It's a hoax.
