I'm still trying to get my head wrapped around today. A lot of things aren't making sense....
Two 911 calls that started the whole mess. OK, I can visualize one guy looking for jollies and making a call. It's stoopid, but it happens. Two? The
response indicated they were considered legitimate at first, so I'm assuming it wasn't the same person both times, but both in the vicinity of the
Sparkman Center. So, two people wanting to get their jollies together, sneaking around a top-secret military installation? I guess it's possible...
The video, which I am assuming was real due to the multiple reports I heard and the official mention of a woman shooter, is over the top. Who does
that? The police have a video of her now... where's she gonna hide? Not anywhere near Huntsville; that's for sure. Folks around here, this far from
Huntsville, are talking about skinning someone alive for this.
Facebook can be accessed anywhere there is a computer or smart phone. Could the video have been uploaded from somewhere else?
Two separate reports from Brown's Ferry nuclear plant close by. The first, of a "suspicious person" on the site by a deputy, later my wife heard one
about someone taking pictures of the plant.
And finally, another threat called in to a nearby daycare center. It barely got a blurb on the local news.
Now, everyone forgive me, but the conspiracist is gonna be showing in the rest of this post...
When I drove a truck, I was a member of a program called Citizen's Watch (or something like that, been a while). In it, we were told to look for
casing activity, because terrorists typically cased their targets. A grown man might try to board a school bus unarmed, for instance, to see what the
response would be. He's not in any real danger because he just tried to board a bus and didn't hurt anyone, but he learns how to effectively board a
school bus and next time might do so armed.
Anyone see where I'm going with this?
Suppose, just suppose, two people sneak into the Sparkman Center, or just get on the grounds. It's not far from the Visitor's Center. They call in a
shooter alert and sneak back out. The police respond with force and find nothing. Then a pre-recorded video of the woman is uploaded to Facebook. Now
we have mass confusion among responders. Where is this woman? Who is this woman? Why didn't we know who she was sooner?
Every fool with a badge is on Redstone Arsenal, trying to sort out a maze of misinformation. If anyone is left, they're at the daycare center making
sure it's secure. And over yonder at the nuclear plant, someone was taking pictures...
So a week, month, year from now a group sneaks from the Visitor Center to the Sparkman Center, and actually start shooting. The police respond, in
force. More false threats are called in to soft targets in the area. While all this is going on, a group breaks into the local nuclear plant... oh,
crap. Who's left to stop them? Rent-a-cops with no backup?
That makes sense. Two fake 911 calls and a video of a non-existent shooter for yucks just doesn't.
