Murder On Demand
I got some questions via U2U from a fellow member about how this could be a conspiracy, so I thought I'd go ahead and elaborate on it here.
First off, this is all just speculation, so make of it what you will.
The idea is similar to what was presented in the movie Telefon
, but with an even more sinister
are vetted based on information obtained via domestic
surveillance, medical and/or law enforcement records and ultimately selected for conditioning if they meet the necessary criteria.
This would presumably include diagnosed mental disorders that could be exploited and also serve as cover after the crimes are committed.
The conditioning may consist of classic brainwashing
techniques geared toward driving the subject
to follow a predetermined pattern of behavior.
In this case the pattern would be shooting certain people to death followed by committing suicide. The suicide would eliminate the risks which would
arise if the subject were subject to interrogation by law enforcement and mental health professionals after the killings.
Not everyone can be conditioned to kill themselves, however, since the inhibitions are strong and a subject may experience difficulty with committing
suicide after the planned murder spree. So I would imagine that the conditioning is carried out in a way that would make it difficult to uncover if
the subject is captured alive. In other words, he'll just seem "crazy and paranoid".
Of course, there are many people who are
crazy and paranoid, and homicidal to boot, so that's hardly a stretch.
And in fact, maybe that's all that's going on.
Stranger Than Fiction
However, my suspicion is aroused by the many "coincidences" which have surrounded mass murders in recent decades, similarities in pattern and
execution, and the apparent coordination
involved in many cases.
The timing is uncanny, but usually only becomes obvious in retrospect, when it emerges that a certain piece of legislation was stalled or some other
"problem" was overcome as a result of the massacre.
All speculation, of course, but sleeper agents
do exist, and creating them was one of the
objectives of MKULTRA
, among many other programs, and the U.S. government is by no means the only
organization which has researched and employed these techniques.
Since the time of those programs, there have been many strange and unresolved "conspiracies" surrounding assassinations of public figures and
horrifying "killing sprees", many of them involving "lone gunmen" and "whackos" who seemed to crawl out of the woodwork on cue.
Again, maybe it's all coincidence or random, but as I like to say, there are no coincidences, and "random" just means an event for which we don't
know the actual cause.
Thus I remain a skeptic.
P.S. A good list of this kind of killing can be found here: Wikipedia: Spree killer
