NIGHTLY NEWS: DID ANY OF THEM MENTION THE BLACK BLOC ANARCHISTS OR OWS?
vanity | 7/20/2012 | MrChips

Posted on 07/20/2012 5:52:01 PM PDT by MrChips

This horrible event in Colorado dominated the evening news, of course. I flipped channels tonight watching bits and pieces of each of the Alphabet networks, NBC, CBS, ABC. I did not watch PBS. My apologies for expecting anything at all from PRAVDA, but I don't get cable. They kept mentioning that "no one knows the motive." But, I am curious as to whether ANY of them are reporting on the Black Bloc cult within the Occupy Wall Street crowd, the theory that was proposed this morning by the private investigator from Florida. I didn't hear anything about that at all. Did you? Have a missed I major development that makes my question no longer relevant? Or, is it still relevant?

Nothing has been confirmed. Looks like the guy might have schizophrenia.

Nothing on FOX about it, either. Maybe they're waiting for more. They don't want to make an ABC style mistake.

This investigator from Florida offered nothing but pure speculation. I'm also guessing schizophrenia.

Not everything has a political motive behind it. Sometimes people are just nuts.

Schizo, wacko, and evil, but the theory presented by that private investigator seemed quite plausible. He said the explosives, the dress, the planning, all were consistent with Black Bloc methods.

This morning, when I saw a brief mention of it, I went to the OWS website. There was a discussion about Holmes. A few members admitted that, indeed he was a member of OWS, but their mission was to remain non-violent. I understand that...and I understand that crazies can join a group or remain alone. I am not blaming them.

That discussion, on their website, was deleted when I tried to pull it up again this afternoon. Then, a certain FReeper accused me of not knowing what I was talking about...of spreading rumors.

After reading other posts by that FReeper, I didn’t feel badly. Seems to bitch and accuse everyone of posting rumors and crap, but he doesn’t ever have the info and sources himself. Sad character. You just gotta laugh at some people.

It’s fine to speculate in private discussion, but it would be irresponsible to air such theories without evidence. That’s all it is so far, a possibility.

“(Holmes’) age, the black clothes and gas mask he was wearing, the facts he is white and underground, the facts he is a drifter prone to over-the-top violence, it all fits. Batman features an Occupy-type bad guy and this nut job may have taken it personally.”

Tenuous connection at best. What other kind of clothing would you wear if you wanted move around at night and what else would you wear on your face if you were going to throw tear gas?

That and Black Bloc has never actually gone around shooting people, so saying this is their “tactics” is kind of silly.

Just in case you don't know: If you hit the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard (usually in the upper right), you'll take a snapshot of whatever is on your monitor at that moment.

Then open a new Bitmap Image document on your desktop (right click). Then right click on the Bitmap, choose Edit. From there you can paste your "Print Screen" snapshot.

This is a handy way to save an internet page that might later on mysteriously disappear.

A man called into Denver KOA today and said he was doing a documentary on OWSers in Denver. He said he recognized the guy and is reviewing tapes and photo records. He says he’a almost positive they interviewed the guy.

That said, this shooter has the same look on his face as Son of Sam and Jared Loughner (shot Gabby Giffords). He’s completely insane. He also told the cops he was the Joker and other bizarre things.

Yup...I saw a post this morning from a "FReeper" who opined obama put this guy up to it for the UN gun ban treatie and to deflect his current "you didn't do that" debacle.

I had to laugh as I have long suspected this "FReeper" of being here just to post ridiculous comments to make FR look looney.

Thanks so much...you’re sweet. I have developed tougher skin as the years go by.

I’m in the medical field...I have compassion, but sometimes it’s difficult for me to understand why some people can be so cruel towards others. I assume that they feel inferior...don’t like themselves, so they have to take their anger out on others.

The whole "well, he was just crazy, and that's all there is to that" meme, being bruited so insistently by some, doesn't take into account that said insanity in no way PRECLUDES Holmes being an OWSer. (If anything, such a deteriorated mental state only makes it more likely...)

Of course MSDNC is going with “Gun Control” what they don’t get is that gun control allowed this tragedy to happen. James Holmes had many guns, no one else in the theater had any weapons, if anyone in that theater had a gun this massacre would not have happened..the bad guy had the guns, the good guys did not

This is what the Florida guy said:

“There’s no public information available on James Holmes anywhere. No car, no credit card, no nothing.”

Well I’ve heard a ton of info about this guy and I’m just a schmuck on FR. They got newsies sitting in front of Mom’s house, he was an honors grad at UCal Riverside, they even have video of him (legally) purchasing one of the firearms. He was driving a white Hyundai.

So the Fla guy has zero crediblity in my book.

He also told the cops he was the Joker and other bizarre things.

Has that actually been corroborated other than as a statement from Kelly, the police chief of NYC????

I realize it's now been around the world at least twice, but is it actually true? Why would the chief of a city thousands of miles away be the only one with this sort of detail?

I am just as inclined to believe it could be a ruse and a deflection ala Oklahoma City bombing.
