Wolf meets with Oath Keepers / CIA Spy confirms Sandy Hook and Boston bombing “false flags”

There seems to be a theme here. today . . .  A few days ago, I was simply researching things going on in the world of Common Law Grand Juries. In that time, the lid has been blown-off the entire Sandy Hook event. Earlier this week, Wolfgang Halbig met with a group of Oath Keepers in New York–here are the details.

Reader submissions are helping to get the truth out there. Many thanks to all parties involved. -LW


Wolf meets with Oath Keepers / CIA Spy confirms Sandy Hook and Boston bombing “false flag” events

Wolfgang Halbig converted nearly 200 “Oath Keepers” during a presentation on Long Island, including many New York State Police, EMTs and other experts in this domain.

He was accompanied by David Weiss, who has composed a summary of the event, which I am now publishing here. And we have a video that goes with it.

In addition, we have discovered a manual that appears to be the op plan for the Sandy Hook exercise, which Obama admin officials in the Department of Education have confirmed was a drill where no children died that was done to promote an anti-gun agenda.

And a former CIA spook has declared that Sandy Hook and the Boston bombing were “false flag” occurrences, where a staged event is presented as done by others to influence a target audience. He identifies several “indicators” that it was not a real event.

Dr. Eowyn, who has done exceptional studies of Sandy Hook, presents her analysis of what he had to say during an interview with Alex Jones, during where (as an insider) he confirms what we have been publishing at Veterans Today and on Dr. Eowyn’s personal blog.

The Wolf is on the prowl

Wolfgang W. Halbig came to an Oath Keepers meeting in Long Island NY on Monday, 6 October 2014, to discuss the evidence of the Sandy Hook massacre actually being an elaborate illusion pulled off by people within FEMA, Homeland Security and the highest levels of our government. He presented to a packed room of 150-200 persons, of whom about half were law enforcement and EMS workers. Prior to the presentation, I had (David Weiss) interviewed a few random people on their thoughts on Sandy Hook and all of them said they only know the official story of a lone gunman killing 26 people and they were here to hear a presentation on what really happened. They had no idea what they were about to hear. Wolfgang presented for just over 2 hours followed up by a Q&A. There were intelligent questions asked in search of an alternative reason things might have happened but the answers brought every point back to the undeniable conclusion that the official story was just that, an impossible story. By the end everyone there was wide awake to the mass deception played out on the world on 14 December 2012.

Many people out there have different opinions of Wolfgang from him being an agent for the PTB to not agreeing with his methods of investigation. If you don’t like his methods, that is your opinion and you have every right to it but if you think he is an agent out to crush the truth movement, thats where I step in and tell you that you are very mistaken. I (David Weiss) met Wolfgang after his first interview (with Dave Gahary) to go viral on YouTube. I helped him set up a PayPal account, which he had no Idea how to do and later his GoFundMe crowd funding account. The man has no ties to anyone that is out to stop truth. He has no agenda other than to expose the fraud at Sandy Hook. He has risked his life and his family relationships over this and has not gained a personal penny. In fact he has spent much of his own money. Love him or hate him, he is giving it his all and is a true American patriot and hero.

The FEMA Drill document

Originally we came across a Youtube video showing the attached document describing a FEMA drill scheduled for 12/13/12 that would be reviewed as a real-time event on 12/14/12. It certainly would be a smoking gun, if it could be determined to be authentic. An administrator from the “Sandy Hook HOAX” FaceBook page reached out to the YouTuber to see where he obtained the document. He explained that he was crawling the web with a specific browser looking for interesting stuff and found this:

If this document is real–and it describes an event that begins at 8:00 AM and ends at 11:59 PM, which corresponds with the Sandy Hook timeline, which reinforces such an inference–then there are two alternatives as to how it came to be discovered: either (1) it wasn’t hidden well enough and someone found a way in; or (2) someone involved purposely leaked it to anonymously blow the whistle.

An additional reason to believe that this might be the manual for staging the event is that a bill before the Connecticut State Legislature provides compensation for the stress and anxiety endured by those who were within the vicinity of Sandy Hook Elementary School between 9 AM and 11:59 PM when it occurred, which is the same time specified in (what appears to be) the actual manual for its conduct and represents what should properly be interpreted as yet another form of bribery to not expose the scam:

Bill to compensate : another bribe

While meta-data embedded in the PDF shows a creation date of 10/8/12, that isn’t difficult to fake. You would only need to reset your computer to that date and create a new PDF. That is reminiscent of the sting on Dan Rather, who discovered a fitness report on George W. Bush wile serving in the Texas Air National Guard. He vetted it thoroughly by verifying its contents, word by word, with the secretary who typed it and the officer who had dictated it.

But one of W’s handlers–probably Karen Hughes–had already discovered it and had it retyped, so that when Dan Rather presented his expose on television, they immediately declared it to be a fake because it had been types using a font that IBM only introduced after the date of the document itself. Most Americans, hearing that the document was fake, mistakenly inferred that its contents must therefore be false. This manual may be meant to be a sting of that kind.

Former CIA Spy: Sandy Hook and Boston Bombing were false flags

by 

Robert David Steele, 62, is a former CIA clandestine services case officer known for his promotion of open source intelligence. He was a candidate for the Reform Party‘s nomination for President of the United States in the 2012 presidential election. (Click here for his bibliography and media appearances.)

Steele is the founder and publisher of Public Intelligence Blog.

In a recent interview with Alex Jones of InfoWars, Steele confirms everything FOTM has said about the Sandy Hook school massacre on December 14, 2012, and the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013 — that they were false flag events.

A “false flag” event is some traumatic public incident that is:

  • False: The public are given an untruthful version of the event by the government and the media. The falsity can range from no one actually had been killed or hurt (it was all theater); to some of the alleged victims are real; to all the alleged victims are real but the alleged perpetrator(s) is a fall guy who was set up by the “real” conspirators behind the scenes.
  • Results in a “rallying around the flag” effect: Whatever the true nature of the “false flag” event, the objective is to arouse and manipulate the emotions (fear, anger, outrage, indignation) of the American people so that they’ll “rally around the flag” in an outburst of patriotism, supplying the current White House occupant and his (and his party’s) policies with their support and loyalty.

Below is the video of the interview, followed by the transcript of Steele’s words, interspersed with links to the relevant FOTM posts.

Beginning at the 6:03 mark, Steele said:

“From where I sit, both the [Sandy Hook Elementary] school in Connecticut and the Boston Bombing were false flag operations.

“The school in Connecticut had been closed for years. There were no students, no teachers, no parent-teacher associations. The paramedics were not allowed into the school. From where I sit, that was a complete false flag. It was a drill. But … others have exposed the actors who were involved, financial relations with the families that were allegedly victimized, who had their homes bought and were then given exit pass. All of that is on the record, but you don’t see the media covering that.”

See:

Steele continues: “Boston bombing, for me, the truthteller was when the rabbis and the priests rushed to comfort the wounded and they were not allowed to get near any of the wounded. That, in intelligence, we call an indicator. And then you add to that the fact there were no, I mean no, wounded people taken to hospitals. And finally, you add to that the big to-do about the amputee. He turned out to be a hired actor for a company that specializes at putting amputees into battle field simulations. False flag. Boston was a practice attempt to lock down an entire city.”

See:

Beg. at the 8:44 mark, Steele said: “the actual bomb was a theatrical device. You don’t buy gun powder at a fireworks store to create a bomb. It just is not done. I had my explosive ordinance people look at this. Everybody laughed at this. This was school kids stuff. THERE WAS NO BOMB. There were no injuries. This was a false flag.”

See “Were Boston Marathon bombings a false flag? – Part 2: The bomb drill

Steele continues: “And now we’re seeing 9/11 unravel, and Richard Gates getting on CSPAN. Basically, the American public is starting to wake up, and all of these little things that they could have gotten away with are now starting to collapse because of the Internet, because of guys like you, because of people like me and my contributing editors. And so I think we’re coming to the end of the road here. I do believe, and I really want to stress here, I think 95% of the people in the U.S. government are good people trapped in a bad system. But the last 5% are doing some evil, pathologically sick things, including murdering U.S. citizens. And that’s the part that I’m starting to see signs of encouragement. For example … the court has finally just refused to accept [Eric Holder] Attorney General’s assurances about secret state documents, and for the first time in modern history the court is saying to the executive, ‘You have to show us these secret documents. We will not make you make claims without showing us the documents. I believe the tide is turning, legally, against government misbehavior.”

Coming Soon: Major Turning Point in Sandy Hook Shooting Hoax

I had mixed feelings about posting this video because it’s long and strikes me as a wee bit of fear-mongering. Wolfgang makes some good points, but there is a lot more drama in his presentation than I feel is necessary. On the positive side, it seems that there are common law grand juries getting ready to expose the truth of Sandy Hook. -LW


Wolfgang Halbig on Sandy Hook ~ Staged Government Community Event- It was a DHS/FBI/FEMA HSEEP/ICE Drill- an “INTEGRATED CAPSTONE EVENT” (see DHS website)

“There WILL BE a proper Coronial Inquest where all the witnesses (including the cops/feds) are put on the stand and cross-examined under oath and where ALL the evidence (forensic, ballistics, eye-witnesses, documentary) is also presented and carefully analysed and tested again, under oath.

A Common Law Grand Jury constituted of WE THE PEOPLE will challenge the state’s assertions that Sandy Hook really happened as they say it did, their assertions will be vigorously contested.

Their completely discredited and bogus “narrative” wouldn’t stand up for two seconds under competent and rigorous cross-examination.”

GREENLAWN, NY– Wolfgang Halbig, former teacher, law enforcement, and current national school safety assessment & emergency management consultant, maintains that the so-called Sandy Hook CT shootings were a staged cooperative government – community “Capstone” exercise planned years before December 2012, for the purpose of banning commonly-used firearms and limiting free speech. Halbig asserts the incident was a financial bonanza for the Newtown community and involved parents, all of whom moved into the CT community only between 2009-2011, and all receiving over $200K each for their involvement in the exercise.

Halbig’s questions are returned with silence and contempt; threat of arrest. Many details don’t add up… record shows no report of actual shots fired; no social security numbers for the dead students; 16 state troopers pre-positioned 45-60 minutes before the alleged shootings, and much more. Halbig also presents the proper safety procedures that schools must follow in a code-red event and urges parents to study your local school emergency management plan.– FULL LENGTH VIDEO– October 6, 2014

Fuse? What Fuse?

I’ll have to be fast. Yesterday my Internet was down nearly all day, and after two calls to Century Link, they tell me we have a discontinued modem, and guess who has to install the new one! Righto! The techno-weenie—because hubby won’t be home for another week. I haven’t been able to stream videos or audios or do anything much with the speeds and dropping of the line we’ve experienced lately and spent 2 hours at Starbucks. It’s extremely frustrating to be offline, particularly when so much is happening out there!

When Cobra said the Resistance Movement was concerned about how Humanity would behave when “the Event” occurs, I can fully understand how it could be utter chaos and violence. This is why we need to wake up as many people as possible as SOON as possible, and why we need to eliminate the archons.

This 5-and-a-half-month old puppy is driving me bananas. Mica is NOTHING like our other Goldens and it’s going to require all my patience to get through this stage. I am intending that when he gets neutered in a couple of weeks that he will calm down because right now, he SEEMS to deliberately do what pushes my buttons. Dogs don’t think that way, of course, but that’s Mica, and my fuse is almost non-existent.

OH–phone—my neighbour needs a ride to pick up his car at the shop because his wife is up north. Back in 20.

Well, it was 45, but where was I?  Wow—the Internet is still up! Woo-hoo!

Last night I was supposed to join Candia Sanders on Revolution Radio but once again, I was unable to call in due to technical difficulties. They seem to follow me around.

I have two neighbours coming over today to sign the petition to get our ‘Right to Know’ on the ballot in November, and it’s rapidly morphing into a challenging week.

Getting back on topic, yes, patience is wearing thin for many people, and I had another taste this week of how people often react/respond in difficult situations.

You may have read the post about Obama Officials Confirming the Sandy Hook Hoax—that no children died.

I already had one reader comment earlier who said she had a friend who lived in Sandy Hook and lost her child or children—and she believes her—despite the evidence. She believes her friend, despite the fact that her friend signed a non-disclosure agreement and the entire town was virtually “threatened” not to speak to anyone about what REALLY happened. She just doesn’t understand what kind of world she’s living in. She’s not awake.

 Even after all the evidence is laid out for us to see, STILL people want to believe Sandy Hook happened—because their government and media TOLD them it happened… and how foolish they would feel to learn it was all a lie…

And we want to tell them 9/11 was on purpose!? Are we insane?

After that last post about Sandy Hook, another reader told me to F-off for posting lies and adding to the confusion. If they looked at the evidence proving it was an elaborate, well-orchestrated charade, I don’t believe they would be so confused, but of course they won’t look. They will stand steadfast in their lie because they are not critical thinkers and must believe they are right—no matter what.

Previously I’d had a nasty comment from someone who can’t accept that the Popes, Vatican and Catholic and Anglican Churches are involved in child trafficking and torture, satanic sacrifices of babies and blood rituals and lashed out at the nearest person—shooting the messenger. Me. Whatever.

Now, that’s in response to just two articles. When we shatter people’s paradigms and threaten the long-standing belief systems supporting their reality, there’s no telling how they will react. They don’t “respond”—they “react”—unthinking. It’s all about emotion. This is very interesting to watch as it unfolds—and we’re just getting started.

So, when we’re praying for The Event and the end to all this chaos and subterfuge, it may help to remember that when the world that the masses know begins crumbling in front of their eyes and the lamestream media is once again ours to share Truth, we will be in for a wild ride. I hope we’re up for it.

Cobra says many people may react violently—particularly to bank closures. I have no doubt of that.

When all the lies are laid bare, it wouldn’t surprise me to see people having emotional breakdowns, at the very least, and committing suicide, at worst—because they simply can’t accept the truth. To be plucked in mere seconds from one reality and deposited unceremoniously into another will be far beyond the limits of many people to gracefully assimilate. So many are operating in high anxiety every moment of the day already. My heart goes out to everyone in advance.

And WE, the awakened ones in the Truther Movement will not be immune—oh no. There will be things we learn at the time of The Event that will knock our socks off and we will find that we were wrong about many things, too—so don’t get attached to your truths.

The following timely gift of wisdom from Neale Donald Walsch hopped into my mailbox this morning and I thought it appropriate for me, and probably others. It’s going to take everything we’ve got to hold it together from here on, my friends—at least from my perspective.

My wish is for peace and serenity for us all, and for that, we must go within and anchor ourselves in a safe harbour.  Maybe TWO anchors.  ~ BP

“On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know…

…that patience, above all else, is what is needed right
now. Do not let anxiousness or frustration take over.Conditions on the exterior of your experience will
change, but your highest benefit will be achieved when
conditions in your interior remain the same. Hold to
your inner peace. Reclaim your identity. Trust your
higher wisdom. Look to the grander vision.Do not agitate for a decision right now, nor seek an
immediate solution. Do not wish for an end to things as
they are. That end will come. Yet let it arrive naturally.
Do not push the river. Wait. The Right Time is at hand,
and resolution of this difficulty is on its way.”

 

 

 

VT Says Sandy Hook School Closed, Actors Used to Stage a Drill Feds Used to Deceive the Public: NO SHOOTING OCCURED! [videos]

The ‘Sandy Hook Hoax’ is one of those government psyops the public just can’t swallow, while those of us in the truther community continue to bring forward more and more evidence, wondering how long the masses can keep their heads in the sand before they suffocate.

As most of us agree, the truth about a false flag usually comes out early—before the feds’ disinformation campaigns have a chance to throw us all the outlandish “intel” via the lamestream media and the Internet to confuse everyone so much we don’t know what to believe.

I posted a video on February 1, 2013 —just over a month after the lame drill-come-massacre—indicating the Sandy Hook school wasn’t even open at the time, but no one seemed to think it was significant. I thought it was huge. Now the fact that the school had been closed for FOUR YEARS prior to the false flag has surfaced again on ‘VeteransToday’.

This is the video. What do you think? Credible?

The truth was apparently buried, but the winds of change have dusted it off sufficiently so it can be reexamined and appreciated for what it is. Timing is everything.

I will be SO glad when the public can finally accept the depths to which the psychopaths in the US government will stoop to lie and manipulate them into passing legislation THEY want to pass to further control the unsuspecting masses.

No point in beating a dead horse. Wake up America. Your government lies to you and will do ANYTHING to further their agenda, which in this case, was GUN CONTROL, with a sub-agenda of causing parents to live in fear that their children are in danger, every day, even at school.

Their ploy worked beautifully. They paid actors to pull it off, bought everyone in Newtown a house (paid off their mortgages on Christmas Day, no less), threatened anyone who revealed information contrary to the “official story” with arrest, and watched as the sleeping masses screamed for stricter gun control so something like that could never happen again.

America bought it—just as they bought 9/11, and too many other false flag events to count—even those where innocent people were murdered.

The powers-that-were will suck every bit of pain, sorrow, fear and angst from you and always come back for more. And you let them—because you live in denial. Your government doesn’t work for you—THEY WORK YOU OVER. Wake the frig up so we can eliminate them and move forward!  

If you’re awake—good for you. If you need convincing, read the article below, watch the videos, and then check this out. Sandy Hook officials caught running scared.  ~ BP

School closed, actors used: Robbie Parker, entertainer, exposed

“In the end, that’s what this election is about. Do we participate in a politics of cynicism or a politics of hope?”–Barack Obama

 

Now you don'tAs I have previously explained (“Sandy Hook Elementary School: closed in 2008, a stage in 2012″), the school appears to have been non-operational during at least the four years prior to the events of 14 December 2012.

There is lots of confirming evidence, with or without the Wayback Machine’s indirect proof–that if there was no internet activity on specific days, probably there was none during the interval within which they fall–that confirms it had been closed.

In addition to not being compliant with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), video footage shows that it was being used as a storage facility, where even The Newtown Bee reported that it was laden with asbestos and other bio-hazards. No student should have been there.

More proof it had been abandoned

Moreover, no activities of the kinds that are commonplace at elementary schools, such as spelling bees with winners, students of the month, teachers of the year, and so on, were being announced from 2008-2012:

Nationwide Post-Sandy Hook Terror Drills Underway and Coming Soon to YOUR Town

Apparently, collectively, We, the Sheeple, passed the feds’ tests with top marks. We fell for it hook, line and sinker—every time! That’s 100% -or an A+. Well done. We get a gold star.

Since we have not reacted to Sandy Hook or Boston or any of the other false flags with the indignation, fury and uprising we should have, the cabal is going ahead with their plans to militarize our lives and to usher in the laws that will remove every last weapon that would allow us to defend ourselves against a tyrannical government and turn us into slaves who obey their every command—nay—BEG them to protect us from their fabricated terrorism threats against our security.

For shame, America. Is this what you want for your children—to grow up terrorized? Or worse—die in a drill that goes live? That’s their MO, you know.

Their goal is to have us throwing our guns at their feet in submission if they will only protect us from—well, what kind of lethal threat do you think they will come up with next? Be prepared.

Nationwide Post-Sandy Hook Terror Drills

 

Global Research, August 23, 2013

With the school year now underway a flurry of federally-coordinated “active shooter drills” are taking place across the country. The exercises are part of a broader program the FBI is carrying out as a result of an Obama’s directive following the December 2012 Newtown school massacre.

The FBI has teamed up with an existing active-shooter training program —Advanced Law Enforcement Rapid Response Training (ALERRT) — begun in Texas after the 1999 Columbine High School shootings and funded in part by the US Department of Justice. The FBI sent roughly 100 tactical instructors to ALERRT training and then placed them throughout the US to oversee mock terror exercises with local law enforcement agencies.

“Officers and instructors were divided into gunmen, responders, hostages and victims and given real-life scenarios that test their ability to enter a building and confront a shooter,” according to an Associated Press report.

“The officers, in blue protective helmets, fired non-lethal projectiles from lookalike handguns — enough to make a loud “pop” and sting on impact … “In that kind of event, you can never get to the point where it’s real life. Always in back of the officer’s head, they know, ‘I’m not actually going to die. No one’s being killed,’” said J. Pete Blair, the ALERRT program’s research director and an associate professor at Texas State University-San Marcos. But, he added, “It’s as close as we can get to the real thing without people getting hurt. The [new] drills coach officers to directly engage the shooter instead of waiting for specialized SWAT teams to arrive … The protocol marks a stark shift from past training that focused on containing the scene, controlling the perimeter and calling for SWAT help. That strategy, though widely accepted at the time, was criticized as too slow and painstaking after the Columbine shootings.” [1]

Since these exercises are designed to be as realistic as possible, students, school personnel and the broader public may be unsuspectingly caught up in the contrived terror, unable distinguish whether the “actors” alongside the accompanying gunfire and explosions are real or fake. This important facet is left up to the relevant agencies to explain to the press.

Further, such events are purportedly carried out to ensure civilians’ “safety” while sharpening police officers’ skills in “real life” environments. Yet local communities and the families of frightened children might wonder why military training-style maneuvers have to be carried out with their loved ones as props, especially in light of the fact that the entire program is based on an event the public still has only limited information about.

Such government mandates and exercises also call up several deeper questions that will scarcely be considered by those claiming to act in out best interest. For example, aren’t these trainings a fundamental component toward convincing young people and the broader public that virtually no place is safe? Through such drills and increasingly militarized policing isn’t it safe to conclude that those authorities suggesting the sole remedy for possibly being in the wrong place at the wrong time is a virtual police state?

Moreover, when one takes into consideration the slipshod and even downright dishonest nature of so much journalism today, such drills may in fact provide the basis for the carefully coordinated news spectacle should they “go live,” thereby providing further rationale for the perpetual state of terror and surveillance the nation presently finds itself in.

It is important to note that just as these drills were taking place a real event transpired in Decatur, Georgia—indeed, one that at first glance is difficult distinguish from the many federally-orchestrated shooter drills, not to mention the 2012 Newtown school massacre. A 20-year-old gunman dressed in black and carrying an AK-47 allegedly found his way into the Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy where a school secretary occupied him with small talk long enough for police to arrive. “The gunman also held other employees hostage,” the New York Times reports. When police made it there

the gunman stepped outside of the building and fired four to six shots, and went back inside, the police said. An officer returned fire. [school clerk Antoinette] Tuff said he wanted to go back outside but she told him to empty his pockets and backpack and to put his weapons down. “He got down on the floor, but when the police officers came in, he was actually laying on the floor with his hands behind his back,” she said. [2]

It is important to note how the Decatur Township School District received FEMA training in emergency management response less than one month ago. At the conclusion of that training Decatur Township School Board President and Decatur Township Fire Department Chief Dale Henson observed, “As leaders, there is no better way to spend our time than preparing for incidents which we hope will never occur, but for which we must be ready, in order to protect our most precious resources – our children and those who work in our schools to enrich their lives.” [3]

The following are descriptions of some of the mock terror events that have taken place throughout the country since August 1, 2013.

Rossford, Ohio

“In the scenario: A school bus is en route to an event when suddenly it’s hijacked! A camera inside the bus captured the whole thing while an audience of school teachers, administrators and transportation directors watched it all unfold on a live feed. ‘Every driver, administrator will take something away from this saying that this could actually happen on my bus. That’s what our focus was. This could happen on any bus’, says Jeff Culler, Rossford Schools Transportation Director.”

West Orange, New Jersey

“’The police came in and they were like, “Get down! Get down!” because they didn’t know if there were shooters or not,’ said student Brian Cheda. ‘I actually thought I was going to get shot for a moment. I was really scared.’ Cheda, who played the role of a student calling for help, gets shot in the drill — not by police, but by an active shooter. Other students were inside too.”

Long Beach, California

“Will Nash, spokesman for the Long Beach Fire Department, said emergency workers were particularly focused on practicing a process called simple triage and rapid transit/treatment. The idea is to remain calm in an active-shooter situation while quickly caring for those most injured … The wounded were carried to a small lawn near the 7th Street entrance to the campus, where staff from St. Mary Medical Center, clad in bright orange vests, cared for them. By 10:35 a.m., about an hour after the exercise started, campus officials released the first injury count, which included 11 critically, with three “transported” to St. Mary Medical Center, two to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and one to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, a county-run trauma center near Torrance.”

Washington County, Pennsylvania

“Joy Ranko, who also works in the prothonotary’s office, kept watching the clock waiting for the drill to start at 3 p.m. But when the “gunman” fired three blanks in succession near the office, Ranko took cover behind the front desk and saw a stranger standing just a few feet away. She still had goosebumps and was flustered moments after authorities apprehended the fake gunman.”

Hanover, Pennsylvania

“Penn Township Police Chief James Laughlin never wants to face a scenario like the Sandy Hook school shooting. Even so, he realizes that preparing to respond to a similar event is a valuable exercise. ‘These incidents are real and happening today,’ Laughlin said. ‘That’s why we continually have to train and be prepared. We have to have some sort of edge to help ourselves. The citizens expect that and deserve for us to be prepared to encounter that.’”

“These instructors are top-notch. They’ve been all over the world,” [Johnstown officer Erin Kabler] said. “We’re drawing from all their experience and things they’ve done, things they’ve seen and actual action reports.” “The whole paradigm changed. Up until the late-’90s – in fact, 1999 – the local officers would surround the situation and isolate it, then call a SWAT team,” [Kentucky policeman Don] Alwes said. “After Columbine, everyone understood you can’t wait for a SWAT team. A SWAT team is at least an hour away and people are dying.”

The dispatchers handled the calls as if they were normal calls, sending officers where they were told they were needed.”

“For the second year in a row, the first week of school will see increased police presence around the schools, particularly in the mornings, at lunch and when school lets out. Superintendent of schools Rod Weston said he appreciates law enforcement’s efforts to keep the schools safe. He said strong relationships between teachers and students is [sic] an integral part of ensuring safety at schools. ‘Students often know if something is up, and if they have a good relationship with teachers they will feel comfortable enough to bring it up,’ he said[, adding] Taos schools are probably safer than most schools around the country.”
