Mount Rainier National Park has been closed until further notice, and the public is being urged to stay out of the area. News helicopters have been asked to not fly overhead.
In an attempt to not go too off-topic the quote above only strikes me as interesting due the very recent post that was posted here on ATS.
New Activity at Mt. Rainier Confirmed to Be Seismic (...or ICE?), Right here on ATS!
This quote within that thread makes this story very interestingly coincidental:
This means that we now know, before even the USGS has announced it, that we have a swarm at Rainier. And that is news. This is why ATS rocks!
I may be going entirely too far out on a conspiracy branch with this, but none the less, why are they asking news choppers to not fly over and totally closing the park for one shooter. I would assume it is defined as a safety measure.
In the event my conspiracy branch breaks beneath me and I fall to the ground I do hope they catch the alleged shooter and he's brought to justice accordingly.
