There are indeed questions; I won' deny that at all. However, some can, possibly, be explained, without it being anything sinister. There could, of
course, be a more sinister explanation. The possibilities I offer are only guesses, like any others.
Talking to a relative of mine recently, I heard her account of an incident in her own neighborhood, some years back. Some guy decided to take his
wife hostage, at gunpoint, in their home. The entrance to the neighborhood was temporarily blocked off, because his house was within firing range of
there, and homes surrounding his were evacuated, for safety. Other than access, most in the neighborhood were not affected. No one was injured in
the end, and the man was arrested. News reports, however, were a bit different. Some "witnesses" claimed that the man killed his wife and their
children (they had none). Some claimed the entire neighborhood was emptied. Other ridiculous statements were made as well, that the press reported
as though they were factual witness statements. Only because she lived there, and knew people in the neighborhood, did my relative know that these
stories were not real.
The point there is that there could be such fake witnesses in some of these cases as well. Not necessarily someone paid to lie, but people that
simply want attention. In looking at these cases, we need to keep that possibility in mind.
If that was ALL there was, I would write the whole thing off as the fault of careless media and glory hounds lying to them. That doesn't seem to be
all there is to it, though.
I think the best thing we can do is what you seem to be going. gather the information. Save it, if you aren't already. Copy and paste the stories
to documents, save the links, and even get screen shots of the pages. Make notes on any and all discrepancies. Once everything seems settled, then
we can take a closer look, and see what isn't explained, what can be, and so forth.
I have been suspicious of many of these shootings, for some time now (thread on that in signature), but with this one, I don't know what to think.
No clear feeling, one way or another, about the case. With others, I had those. With this one, and so many children involved, emotions get in the
way, and it's harder to see.
