I heard of the SH nearby active shooter training mission and immediately thought about the 9/11 training missions... I did a little digging, then I
discovered the Aurora Shooting and London Bombings also had concurrent training missions. (All factual, so far as I can tell.. links below)
I'm not going to speculate as to why things played out this way. I'm more curious as to what the odds are that this happened repeatedly in large scale
'acts of terror'. I realize these training missions happen all over, all the time, but then ask yourself this.. How many catastrophic fires have
started during fire drills?
These most unlikely of coincidences should warrant some serious scrutiny.
Here's the text from that first link that specifically pertains to the thread...
"By grim coincidence, even as the terrible events were unfolding in Newtown on Friday morning, the Putnam County Emergency Response Team (“ERT”)
happened to be assembled for regular training in Carmel, and team members were at that very moment engaged in a mock scenario of an active-shooter in
a school. The ERT is comprised of specially trained and heavily armed officers from the Sheriff’s Office and the Carmel and Kent Police Departments.
When news broke of the Newtown shooting, the Putnam County ERT commander called Newtown Police and offered to have the ERT respond to the Sandy Hook
school, but that response was not needed because Connecticut police had already secured the scene."
