AKA A FALSE FLAG
I'm aware that this is not the popular opinion, but I feel like it needs to be mentioned to at least bring pause to the situation. What once was considered to be common knowledge and believed to be the likely explanation for such events, has now become too fringe to even mention and has been completely forgotten about in favor of discussing whether mental health is the culprit or if gun control is the cure.
Simply put; if these were false flags, they were supposed to happen and all this discussion about mental health and gun control is MOOT. Maybe that's the whole point and exactly what they want? Somebody asked why does school shootings only happen in the US. Is it the culture? Is there something in the water? Or is it something as simple as this?
And just to clarify: A false flag doesn't necessarily mean that it's fake or fabricated. You can have real shooters, real victims, and a real tragedy. I simply mean that these events were supposed to happen as a means to an end. There are many ways you could plant a seed inside a troubled teen and let it fester organically while you push him over the edge -- but that's an entirely different discussion for another time. MK anyone?
Just some food for thought... or maybe my tin-foil is too tight.
