But what if, what if.
You were a cop.
And you saw a plane crash. You grab your phone and call for help, but it will take them 10 + minutes to arrive...
And you went over there right away, and got to the scene within 5minutes.
And you saw these random people coming up into your huge crash site.
What you gonna do? Let them tamper with stuff? Cause trouble?
Or you gonna grab your AK74, point it into the sky. Star screaming at them, and fire a shot or two.
Just to let them know, to get away.
Look if you don't keep this crash site clean, its YOUR rear bud. If your a cop your the authority here.
Protocols gotta be follow. Gotta do this by the book.
You fire warning shots.
Secure a perimeter 101.
To suggest this was executions well, show me some skulls with bullet holes. Then we can talk conspiracy.
Then again if there are skulls with bullet holes in them. We are in some deep deep crap.

When the Air Force plane carrying Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown crashed in Croatia in April 1996, rumors immediately circulated that the beacon that was supposed to guide the plane to the airport had been set to guide the plane into the mountain nearby. This was allegedly done by an employee at the airport who was found shot to death three days later. His death was declared a suicide. When it became known that the beacon at the airport had a fixed setting that could not be changed, the story changed. It was said that a portable beacon had been set up on the mountain to lure the plane off course. At the time, we were skeptical of this story, which was widely circulated by a publication called Wall Street Underground. It seemed to us to be a concoction based on imagination, not on factual evidence. However, thanks to the persistent efforts of Hugh Sprunt, a Texas tax expert and part-time investigator of political crimes, we now have evidence supporting the rumor that the plane carrying Ron Brown was deliberately guided to crash into the mountain. Hugh Sprunt, who has studied all the investigative reports of the Brown plane crash, has discovered in an official Air Force report on the crash detailed data showing the plane’s course based on AWACS airborne radar. The radar shows that when the plane was within four minutes of touching down at Dubrovnik, it suddenly changed course radically. It turned to the left almost 90 degrees. A few seconds later, it made a U turn back to the right. It then fixed on a course with a heading of 110 degrees, which it followed for over a minute, ending with the plane crashing into the mountain, nearly two miles off course. The Air Force jet, carrying the Secretary of Commerce and 14 business executives who were accompanying Brown on a trade mission, crashed into a mountain, killing all aboard. The pilots, who were making an instrument landing through a low cloud cover and a light rain, obviously thought they were being guided to a safe landing by a beacon at the Dubrovnik airport. But that beacon would have put them on a course with a heading of 119 degrees, 9 degrees farther to the right than the course they followed. Maj. General Charles Coolidge, who headed the Air Force investigation of the accident, won’t explain why his report failed to mention the radical course correction by the plane that sent it into the mountain. He told Hugh Sprunt that his technical advisers said this was an anomaly of no significance, but he has not answered Sprunt’s request for an explanation of that judgment. Maj. General Coolidge knows that when pilots are landing they don’t make radical changes in their course without a very good reason. It appears clear that when Brown’s plane tuned in to the beacon at Dubrovnik, the instruments told them they were off course and would have to make a quick correction. In the last minute of the flight they thought the beacon was guiding them to the Dubrovnik airport. They didn’t know that it was guiding them to their deaths.

Is that LAUGHTER at 1:20 after the 'gun' shot?

I also fail to see the point of shooting any survivors of the plane. It would be impossible to explain the bullet wounds, and I...just don't see why. Everything that went on in the plane is known through the black boxes.

After all, I heard that the medical examination has to be carried out first hand in Russia before the bodies are flown back. Therefore, this would give the culprits enough time to chop the body parts, like, limbs, arms, legs, etc, in order to conceal any penetration marks from the bullet wounds.

My understanding is that this plane was directed to divert to Minsk and persisted in trying to land at Smolensk. Does that make sense? It certainly does have the superficial effect of making the Russians look innocent but it doesn't make much sense otherwise.

Its execution shots to be exact. Close range, most likely point blank to the head or heart. 4 shots... More than likely 4 survivors originally, now none remain to tell their truthful story...
I wonder if anyone was really on that plane...
Shots roughly at 0:58, 1:07, 1:13, 1:16.
