I work for a police department and I am involved around a college campus nearly everyday. I can tell you that reports of gun fire are rarely accurate.
On July 4th we had over 200 calls from campus reporting shots fired. I guess the big exploding fire works were not an obvious enough sign that the
loud noises were not guns.
I've had numerous calls regarding "shots fired" that I knew were dishonest or mistaken because I was sitting right were they claimed the shots
originated. In one case it was simply a student that was blowing up and popping a plastic bag multiple times. I was watching him do it. The call came
in as "mutiple guns shots heard, it reportedly sounds like machine gun fire."
ECU Locked Down Over Man with Umbrella
East Carolina University and law-enforcement officials are continuing to parse the response and aftermath of a campus lockdown that took place on Nov.
16 when a man, mistakenly believed to have been carrying a gun, was spotted near the ECU campus.
I am not saying that what happened today was anything less than tragic for those involved. My sympathy goes out to everyone that was affected by the
I am saying, be careful what you read in to the news reports. Colleges have been notorious for over reacting. College students by and large are
unfamilliar with guns and can not tell the difference between gun fire and a bursting baloon.
Plus witht he modern paranoia about terrorism it is not uncommon for multiple agencies to respond. At least four agencies responded to ECU including
state agencies. If they had been closer to Charlotte I believe the feds would have been there.
Was the other VA deputy that got shot in the leg yesterday a false flag? How about the NC deputy that was killed serving a warant for non support?
They all happened on the same day. The only reason the VT shooting is making news is because it was VT.
