So lately I've been noticing that anytime someone gets up in front of a microphone, be it the President, or some military type speaking, or a Sheriff
announcing the most recent crime wave, often they'll have a bunch of people who look obviously staged standing in behind them?
Sometimes it's military in the case of the Prez or a General, in which case the poor pawns tend to look uncomfortable but like they were ordered to
do it, and not make any faces.
Other times it's other policemen behind the main guy... they rarely speak or are asked to further answer a question, and I've wondered what is the
I always, ALWAYS, end up paying more attention to these background people than I do to the main speaker. I wonder how the heck they got up there, who
picked them, are they worried about being in the line of fire if there's an assassination attempt... all sorts of things. Sometimes they'll be
making faces (or almost fainting like that one woman did behind Obama) and it makes for this whole 'nuther level of curiousness. One that in
particular stands out was the State Police standing behind Wayne Carver, the CT coroner after Sandy Hook. You could see them get more and more antsy,
or appalled, or something, as the disaster of a press conference continued.
I just can't figure out what's the point, from the POV of the public opinion handlers and PR guys; is it to make it look like everybody 'stands
behind' Obama et al? Or to offer more protection around them than the Secret Service can? (!) What?
