The Virginia Beach Police Department had scheduled a free community workshop for Saturday morning on what to do during mass shootings. About 24 hours before the class, a disgruntled employee opened fire in a city building, killing 12 people, police said.

At least 36 people intended to attend the Active Threat Citizen Defense session, according to the department's Facebook page. The workshop has since been canceled, police said early Saturday.

The class was planned days before the shooting and highlighted the need to prepare for potential active threat situations.

I find it beyond coincidence how many times there have been training exercises or in this case a workshop before a tragic event. In fact it is hard to think of a tragic situation caused by a person or persons where there was not some kind of training event beforehand. Is there really this much training going on or is it something else.

Maybe part of humans collective unconscious can sense events like this where a lot of pain and suffering happens? So people unknowingly schedule things like this in advance without knowing why.

Just an idea I had.

It could well be, or it could be kinda like the law of attraction. It does seem like more than just coincidences.

Beyond coincidences indeed!

I never implied that a tragic event happens around every training event. Name a man made tragic situation where there was not some kind of training around the time of the event. It could be that much training really goes on, but I don't think so.

No, just the cherry picked ones to imply “somethings going on”.

If I am cherry picking then name one where there was not training of some kind, as I had requested earlier. It should be easy since I am just cherry picking.

Coincidence, true
But seems more than just random.
If you are creative you can build all kinds of coincidence.
Take the name of the perp for example.
if you assign numeric order of value to the letters you get 4 for d,15 for o,3 for c,and 11 for k.

4+11=15
15-3=12 for L
15/3=5 for E

Math by choice, but its not quite random choice(for some).

Sounds like apples to oranges to me, but it is very possible that I just am not comprehending what you are saying.

As someone whose belief system is built around the idea of a collective consciousness, you may very well have a good point.

Sort of like those who have a bad feeling and don't take that particular plane that crashes later...

Something for me to think about.. thank you for the thought.

It actually makes more sense than the conspiracy theory side of it.

Dude, like every single one just about has the same circumstances. Drills, etc. I am sure more info will come out in time but you can't help notice the "coincidence" in all of these.

Look at all the creative conspiracy thinking that came out after the JFK assassination in 1964.
Lee Harvey Oswald was an anagram, the lone gunman etc etc.
Even the theory that the death of John (we never use his real name) was a false flag..

My agency has a post on our website about how we’ll come train any place of worship, school, or business in how to prepare against and deal with an active shooter situation.

Our PIO officers talk about it on tv.

It boggles my mind that people think training that is literally advertised and happens all the time is somehow evidence of some grand conspiracy at work.

But here we are.

Never said it was evidence of some grand conspiracy, did say it seems to be more than just a coincidence. I also said it could be something like the law of attraction. I also agreed that this theory by a poster could be possible:



Maybe part of humans collective unconscious can sense events like this where a lot of pain and suffering happens? So people unknowingly schedule things like this in advance without knowing why.


This is a conspiracy site and some people here notice things that seem unusual to them and talk about it with others. I don't thing anyone said there was evidence of anything.

If training of this kind goes on every day in every city then you and the other poster have a valid point. If not it is a red herring.

I will ask a third time, if this is cherry picking name a event like this that has occurred since 911 were very similar training was not being conducted around the time frame of the event and very near the event. If this is cherry picking it should be easy.

BTW, I also stated this in the OP:



Is there really this much training going on or is it something else.


And this in a post above:



It could be that much training really goes on, but I don't think so.


But here we are

Survivor who crossed path with gunman thought it was a drill



“He had the gun down at his side. He was so close to me, he swung his arm out, he damn near hit me with the gun. That’s how close we were,” Carlstrom said. “But he never raised the gun at me. He looked up at me briefly.” Carlstrom said he thought ________ was pretending to be a shooter for a drill because the “obnoxious-looking gun” appeared to be a prop, and he didn’t point it at him.


This guy used to talk with the shooter in the parking lot and he thinks that may be why the shooter spared him. He crossed paths with the shooter more than once and the gun was never pointed at him.

Cool. That’s a long response to something that wasn’t directed to you.


This is a conspiracy site and some people here notice things that seem unusual to them and talk about it with others.


And others are allowed to disagree and post their disagreement. This isn’t your conspiracy echo chamber.

I didn’t say it goes on every day in every city. If you’re going to post replies directly to me in an effort to debunk my comments, kindly stick to my actual comments rather paraphrasing them. I understand that it’s easier to attack what you’ve made up and attributed to me rather than attack what I actually said, but it makes for poor discussion.


I will ask a third time, if this is cherry picking name a event like this that has occurred since 911 were very similar training was not being conducted around the time frame of the event and very near the event. If this is cherry picking it should be easy.


I didn’t say it was cherry picking, so I won’t bother defending the straw man you’ve asked me to defend. What I will do is point out that your “evidence” that one can’t name an event that has occurred since 9-11 where (sic) very similar training was being conducted around the time frame of the event would only serve to support the statement that training happens all the time. I’d think that seeing that would be fairly easy.

But here we are.

I wrote the OP so it sorta was.

True and If I disagree with that disagreement I can post my disagreement (even if it wasn't directed at me)




I didn’t say it goes on every day in every city.


I never said you did. You were the second poster to imply that because there is always ongoing training, there is nothing unusual about the fact that there seems to always be a training drill around these events.



I didn’t say it was cherry picking


True and that is my bad. I should of made it a multi reply post or just posted it as a reply to no one.



But here we are.


lol, we sure are.
