Santa Fe Shooting: Here is what I know so far

by Scott Creighton

Here are some details about the mass casualty event that took place yesterday morning. I will continue to gather more info before doing a full report on the event. Keep in mind, the #1 trending story in the media prior to yesterday morning was Gaza and Israel’s responsibility for the murder of 60 unarmed protesters this past Monday.

So far there are ten people reported dead as a result of this event. 9 students and one substitute teacher. A police officer was wounded along with about 8 other students.

It is still unclear how the events unfolded and how the suspect, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, was taken alive after killing so many kids and wounding an officer.

FBI Cover-up Specialist, Louis Freeh, Wants to Produce the “unimpeachable report” of the Parkland Shooting

by Scott Creighton

Louis Freeh, former FBI Director (1993-2001), has put in a bid to have his “risk management” firm (Freeh Group International Solutions) conduct an “independent” investigation into the events surrounding the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High school in Parkland, Fl. The selection is to be made sometime in the near future by Broward County officials and Freeh has moved his base of operations to South Florida recently… though he claims the move was planned before the event.

“Former FBI Director Louis Freeh is interested in handling Broward County’s independent investigation into the shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, a county official said.

Freeh met Monday morning with County Commissioner Michael Udine and Parkland Mayor Christine Hunschofsky.” Sun Sentinal, Mar. 5

“Get used to seeing more of former FBI director Louis Freeh around South Florida in the future, whether or not his company is hired to conduct an independent investigation of the Parkland school shooting.

His global risk management firm, Freeh Group International Solutions, opened an office on Worth Avenue in the town of Palm Beach a few months ago and is moving its headquarters here, Freeh told the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Tuesday in a rare interview…

Freeh’s business move was planned long before the mass shooting on Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and is not linked to his company’s bid to conduct an in-depth and independent investigation…

County Commissioner Michael Udine has been pushing for a major investigation led by a high-profile individual or company that could provide “an unimpeachable report” that would show where mistakes were made and how they can be prevented in the future, he said.” Sun Sentinal, Mar. 27

The selection or even the consideration of someone like Louis Freeh as the person to create an “unimpeachable report” is absurd. Freeh, you see, has a history.

“Judicial Watch pointed to a “legacy of corruption” at the FBI under Freeh, listing the espionage scandal at Los Alamos National Laboratories, as well as “Filegate, Waco, the Ruby Ridge cover-up, the Olympic bombing frame-up of Richard Jewell, [and] falsification of evidence concerning the Oklahoma City bombing.”[4]

Judicial Watch said that Director Freeh believed he was above the law. The group went on to say that Freeh was “a man so corrupt he destroyed the office he led, and a man so cowardly he refuses to face the music for the illegalities he has allegedly committed.”[5] To this was added a claim that the FBI under Freeh was being directed by sinister yet unknown forces. “In case after case throughout the 1990′s, the FBI seems to have tailored its investigative efforts to fit somebody’s pre-arranged script. The question is, who wrote that script — and why?Kevin Ryan, 2012

The cases that he oversaw while heading the FBI all seem to be tainted by his touch one way or another. Perhaps it isn’t a coincidence that he was favored by the likes of George H. W. Bush and the Clinton crime syndicate as well.

TWA Flight 800

FBI labs found traces of high explosives on the wreckage of TWA Flight 800 yet, under Director Louis Freeh’s leadership, they buried that evidence and closed their investigation in Nov. of 1997 stating officially “no evidence has been found which would indicate that a criminal act was the cause of the tragedy of TWA flight 800.”

And then there is this:

FBI Under Renewed Scrutiny After Pulse Gunman’s Father Revealed as FBI Informant

by Whitney Webb, Mint Press News

New court filings in the legal case against Noor Salman, the widow of Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen, have revealed that the gunman’s father was a confidential FBI informant for over a decade, up until the very same month that the deadly shooting took place. The stunning revelation has again placed the role of FBI in domestic terror attacks under scrutiny, especially after the recent school shooting in Parkland where the FBI repeatedly ignored dozens of warnings about the shooter prior to the tragedy.

According to court documents, Seddique Mateen worked as an FBI informant from 2005 to June 2016 and allegedly used his clout with the nation’s top law enforcement agency to block a 2013 investigation into the behavior of his son, three years before he shot up a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing nearly 50 people. During that time, Omar Mateen’s name was also removed from the “no-fly list” and FBI terror watch list.

However, Seddique Mateen was much more than a typical FBI informant, as revealed by his shady dealings abroad. Investigators reportedly found receipts of sizable money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan during the first part of 2016, which also continued through early June. He had also worked to raise up to $100,000 to fund terror attacks against the Pakistani government. This news is especially troubling, given that his son allegedly committed the massacre after having pledged allegiance to Daesh (ISIS), a terrorist group with direct ties to Turkey and an active presence in both Afghanistan and Pakistan

Pathway Home Shooting: Transcript of Radio Dispatch Recording

by Scott Creighton

Someone named ‘annie theecherokeerose’ left me a comment on my YT video on this subject yesterday. She linked me to an article from the Chicago Tribune which read, in part:

A Napa Valley Sheriff deputy arrived before 10:30 a.m. local time and exchanged gunfire with Wong. “Many bullets were fired,” Sheriff John Robertson said in a briefing Friday, which authorities believed forced Wong into a single room at the Pathway facility with three women: Christine Loeber, 48; Jennifer Golick, 42; and Jennifer Gonzales, 29.

And then nothing. Teams of federal, state and local law enforcement officials and hostage negotiators from three agencies had been unable to make contact with Wong through his cellphone or the captives at the Pathway Home, the red-tiled stucco live-in residency on the sprawling campus of the Veterans Home of California, the largest of its kind in the country.

There is zero knowledge about what was going on inside,” California Highway Patrol spokesman Robert Nacke told The Post. “Everything was isolated to one room.”

A team of police stormed the room at about 6 p.m. local time to find the bodies of the three women and the gunman. The AP reported Gonzales was seven months pregnant and was traveling to Washington, D.C., this weekend to celebrate her one-year wedding anniversary.

So according to the Chicago Tribune, the gunfire forced the suspect Wong back into a room with the three hostages and then nothing followed after that. No gunshots recorded by authorities inside the room during the 8-hour “standoff”

This version of events contradicts those who say he was in the room and exchanging gunfire with authorities and at sometime during the end of that exchange, he shot the hostages and himself.

If Police Don’t Have to Protect the Public, What Good Are They?

by Jason Whitehead, MintPress News

In the American police state, police have a tendency to shoot first and ask questions later. In fact, police don’t usually need much incentive to shoot and kill members of the public.

Police have shot and killed Americans of all ages—many of them unarmed—for standing a certain way, or moving a certain way, or holding something—anything—that police could misinterpret to be a gun, or igniting some trigger-centric fear in a police officer’s mind that has nothing to do with an actual threat to their safety…

Now before your outrage bubbles over, consider that the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed (most recently in 2005) that police have no constitutional duty to protect members of the public from harm.

Yes, you read that correctly.

In other words, you can be outraged that cops in Florida did nothing to stop the school shooter, but technically, it wasn’t part of their job description.

This begs the question: if the police don’t have a duty to protect the public, what are we paying them for? And who exactly do they serve if not you and me?

Why do we have more than a million cops on the taxpayer-funded payroll in this country whose jobs do not entail protecting our safety, maintaining the peace in our communities, and upholding our liberties?

Why do we have more than a million cops who have been fitted out in the trappings of war, drilled in the deadly art of combat, and trained to look upon “every individual they interact with as an armed threat and every situation as a deadly force encounter in the making?

I’ll tell you why.

It’s the same reason why the Trump Administration has made a concerted effort to expand the police state’s power to search, strip, seize, raid, steal from, arrest and jail Americans for any infraction, no matter how insignificant.

This is no longer a government “of the people, by the people, for the people.”

It is fast becoming a government “of the rich, by the elite, for the corporations,” and its rise to power is predicated on shackling the American taxpayer to a life of indentured servitude…
