I pretty much am right on board with your line of thinking. And to be clear to anyone reading my comments, I am not taking a particular stance, and I
don't actually have a solid opinion one way or the other. I don't think it's possible yet, too much noise in the signal. Condolences to those of you
with friends and family who might be involved with this.
But just as timetothink has to take their friend's word at face value, I have to do the same with what I see. At face value, the most widely
distributed eye witness videos are clearly scripted and acted. At face value, the entire story is one big loose end. At face value, and with complete
objectivity, it looks like a make believe tv show.
I think it's too early for anyone to say things like "real people are dead, and that's a fact we have to face". So far, I haven't seen much of
anything resembling a provable fact other than the fact that there is an empty looking person with orange hair in a jail somewhere. And I can't even
really prove that, I only saw on it on tv.
This thread reveals some very strange photo manipulation, atypical witness behavior, fake names, the works:
We see police tape photoshopped into a picture. There is a mysterious missing 26 year old who looks like a 50 year old man on his wedding day, and his
hand is gone. One of the most widely used eye witnesses is an actor using multiple aliases in one day. Everyone is still in clothes that got tear
gassed. Every eye witness video is either clearly fake, or in total disagreement with the fakes. There are photos of people grieving with flowers
before they even know what happened. People crying and hugging up close to camera, with people smiling in the background.
The whole thing just stinks. I have known a hell of a lot of comic book geeks in my day, and they were never exactly known to be this expressive,
looking directly into a camera to share heartwarming nuggets of wisdom. The Chris Ramos interview is just so over the top. I've been through some
fairly scary and jarring experiences, but nothing even close to being shot at, and I couldn't imagine doing television interviews, or even sticking
around. I'd be in bed counting every blessing I've ever had, after I washed the tear gas off.
I really, really want to know more about this town.
