Seattle Shooting - Contrived?

Locking down Seattle Pacific University -- after its all over                                             [Breitbart]

When the Liberal Media began questioning, or rather CHALLENGING the Administration's explanations of the motivation behind Mr obama's collaboration with the Taliban and unauthorized release of five terrorists in exchange for Sergeant Bergdahl -- who clearly had deserted, we suspect that Valerie Jarrett was in full swoon.

Bergdahl and Mentor  [CBS News]
The Bergdahl Media Event was going south in a hurry.  The "hero" designation just wouldn't stick, basically because Bergdahl's platoon buddies refused to adhere to the NDIs [Non-Disclosure Agreement] they were forced to sign, which had, until now, barred them from disclosing the circumstances of his coming up "missing" from his unit when they knew he had deserted.

Essentially, they all said the same thing: Bergdahl tossed away his weapons and then sought out the Taliban to join them, and then taught them the skill sets to kill his American unit buddies.

They were not amused, and six of Bergdahl's buddies were killed looking for him.

So, what to do!
A quick conference call to Podesta and Axelrod should have created a quick crisis, and what better crisis than a mass shooting.  After all, it worked pretty well in Aurora and Sandy Hook [where there were so many actors and DHS personnel it looked like a convention -- and NOBODY could get their stories straight], and it almost worked at the Washington Navy Yard [where the identified perp looked nothing like the official "perp" who died on the scene].

The Administration just can't gin up a mass-shooting crisis on a moment's notice any more since they've burned up their reserves.  Turning out shooters from their controlled psych programs had merit, but it takes a while for those chemicals to kick in so the selected "perp" can follow instructions, particularly those which result in his "suicide" -- which eliminates those awkward contradictory comments and confessions which folks like us just love to pick apart.

In this case, we suspect the "perp" was supposed to have "committed suicide" after shooting as many folks as possible; and the responding SWAT unit would have ensured that he wasn't around to spill details.

The official story -- released almost immediately after the shooting -- was that he was enamored of the Columbine shooting and wanted to repeat it.  But, he followed none of the Columbine processes -- no plan, no buddies, and he used a shotgun with no extra weaponry.
So, that story will fall apart fairly quickly under minimum scrutiny.

But, goshdarn it!
This perp blew it! -- and how dare the hall monitor interfere with a perfectly good engineered crisis!

Rifle Casings

Shotgun Casings
This guy was armed with a  shotgun, but exiting students described a scene strewn with empty rifle casings -- not shotgun cartridges.  Shotgun shells don't look like rifle cartridges.  But, even had they been shotgun cartridges, there shouldn't have been that many visible since the perp fired only a few rounds before attempting to reload.

If we were a cynic -- and you all know were not -- we might suggest that the stage was being set for a mass murder scenario akin to Sandy Hook or Colorado -- or even Columbine if they'd just had more perps!  But, with the unexpected interruption of the shooter, there just wasn't time to cover their tracks by picking up the rifle shells and leaving only shotgun casings.

Sandy Hook was SOOOO embarrassing because the official story was that the shooter had used an assault rifle, evidenced by hundreds of empty rifle casings --- but, but, but the rifle he was supposed to have used was shown in the trunk of his car by a cop on the scene -- in a TV video!  Tough to explain all those casings.  Worse, was that Mr obama posed with a grinning little girl on his lap who had, only the day before, been honored as one of the victims, and whose parents were captured on TV grieving over the death of this very child!

The shooter, Aaron Ybarra, fits the profile of our previous mass shooters, all of whom intended to "commit suicide".  

Shooter Ybarra [Facebook]
Friends of Ybarra, 26, regarded him as friendly, laid back, an "amazing friend, calm and nice, and a good worker".  One friend advised, "It makes no sense at all, he was super happy and friendly, an awesome guy who would never let you down".  Prior to the shooting, he had called a friend with an invitation to "... go fishing."
[This is the shooter?]

We're reminded of a similar description of the shooter at the Washington Navy Yard, and of the shooter in Aurora.
[Is there a pattern here?]

"Police sources" [unnamed, unidentified] immediately advised that he had once called 911 to say that he "had a rage" inside him.  They further noted that Ybarra was obsessed with the Columbine shootings in Colorado, that he "liked a Facebook page about guns and snipers".

Unidentified police added "... he wanted to shoot up a school" and "he was hell-bent on killing a lot of people"-- although there was no context, history, or background for those declarations.  Police also referred to police reports in which Ybarra was "lying drunken in the street in front of his home yelling at a SWAT unit [they did not advise why there was a SWAT unit on his street].

Now, that's one hell of a lot of information on a guy who was arrested and charged only a few hours earlier.  It might seem that the police had a file on Ybarra ready to go and discuss coincident with the arrival of a fully equipped SWAT unit at the University only moments after the shooting.

John Meis  [AP/Seattle Times]
If this had followed the standard script, the police would have swarmed in, shut down the area around the school for blocks in every direction, called in TV crews, and this would have been even more intense than the Sandy Hook event -- perhaps with an equal number of actors.  And the grand script finale would have been a report that the shooter had "committed suicide" -- eliminating him as a criminal defendant who might expose how he came to become a "shooter".  

But, Meis, a building monitor, on the scene and armed with pepper spray, then knocked Ybarra down, and other students joined in the action to hold him down, turning him over to the police [and SWAT unit] who arrived within minutes of the shooting!
What a great response time!

Another odd thing was that the school was then locked down, officially to search for other perps - of whom there were none, and officials with bull-horns entered the classrooms to announce that the students had to stay in the locked and darkened classrooms -- and they weren't allowed to contact their parents.  

If you were a parent, and your kid was at that school, and you'd heard reports of at least one student's death [age/sex not disclosed], chances are you'd be going crazy.  

So, why the 90 minute lock-down and communications silence?
Certainly not to secure the building; it was secure, the perp was in custody.  

Could it have been so the "cleaners" could come in to prep the scene with the proper litter and perhaps clean up the litter that just didn't fit [e.g., rifle casings when no rifle was used]?

But, then we have the politicized, prepared anti-gun speech by Seattle Mayor Ed Murray
"... once again, the epidemic of gun violence has come to Seattle -- the epidemic of gun violence that is haunting this nation."

Oddly enough, there were several shootings that same day in other Seattle locations, one at a homeless shelter, but those were not mentioned by either the Mayor or the national media.

So, what's this all about?
What better way to distract Americans outraged at Mr obama for collaborating with terrorists than to have ALL the talking heads talking, once again, about gun violence, and the absolutely, positively, certainly NEED TO DISARM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!  to protect them, by Gawd!
