Crisis Actors: It is Time to Stop Politicizing Tragedies


There Are Crisis Actors Among Us

The Florida school shooting did happen. There are 17 people dead, another 14 wounded. Nikolas Cruz did shoot them and did so with a high powered semi-automatic hunting rifle. However, the question must be asked, with so many broken and devastated people all over Broward County to interview, why the need to import crisis actors?

The appearance of crisis actors is a phenomenon going on in the media for quite some time and it does not happen only in the U.S. It is worldwide. Why? He, who controls the story, controls the heart. Controlled hearts are willing to give up whatever freedoms they have in order to keep such a story from happening again, and it does keep happening.

The Purpose of Crisis Actors

Crisis Actors have a purpose. They are used for crime simulation to train first responders, and to find weaknesses in a security system. Here is an excerpt from crisiscast.com: “Our crisis management exercises can test monitoring and communications systems, safety plans including lockdown and evacuation procedures, the ability of emergency services to co-operate and respond effectively and - of increasing importance - their joint ability to respond to the press, media and information posted on social platforms and the internet.”

The stated goal is to condition people. Quite simply put, the idea is to engender the appropriate response to a given event, as with a school shooting. They are not only conditioning and training first responders; they are conditioning and training YOU. They want your willingness to give up your freedoms to ensure school shootings do not happen again. Bad people are going to get guns. Desperately ill people are going to have thoughts of going after people they perceived have hurt them. There is no stopping that in gun free zones and that is a problem.

Something to Consider

Yours truly lives in a city and state which does not require a license to carry a firearm. I can even put one in my purse, and it is legal. I live in one of the most peaceful states in the union. We have had one school shooting, thirty years ago. Today our schools are crawling with their own police officers, with locked doors that require you to be buzzed in order to get past the security desk. Our universities have their own police force. Plenty of our schools have metal detectors, but mostly in the big cities.

That is not to say that we do not have gun violence but adhering to the second amendment has ensured that we have significantly less gun violence than places like Chicago and New Orleans. The basic thought principal is this: Since no license is required to conceal carry, you do not know who is armed and who is not; therefore, sensible people do not take the chance that I am not carrying protection.

It is About Control

The use of crisis actors at a tragedy such as Parkland is to control that thought. They want us to believe if we give up our right to bear arms, then tragedies like this will not happen. This is a false hope. It creates the illusion that we can have a gun free utopia where everyone is taken care of in mind, body, and spirit by a benevolent government.

That illusion aside, something else happens when there are crisis actors who take over the narrative, especially when they are well used. People like American Radio Show host Alex Jones start telling us that this means tragedies like Parkland did not really happen; that 17 people were not really taken from us; that 14 people are not really lying in a hospital bed recovering; that there are no parents and grandparents, brothers and sisters whose hurt is unrelenting.

There are people all over the internet screaming that this was another government “false flag;” another staged incident that did not really happen. This is what happens when, and is the devastating effect of, sending crisis actors into areas which just experienced tragedies like this, to exploit it for political purposes.

So Why the Actors?

The main goal when using crisis actors is to yank on already strained heartstrings and to sway the public into believing that giving up their rights and their guns would be noble. When in reality, they are allowing a conniving and scheming left to rip away everything that keeps us from being self-governing citizens of a noble country.

The stated purpose of crisis actors is to train and condition first responders such as police officers, EMT’s, firefighters, and private security forces. Something less considered, and should be scrutinized, is the goal of controlling what the response to media is. There really is only one reason for that, in the age of CNN, by controlling what you see. In doing so, you can be nicely programmed to lay down your weapons; ask Nazi Germany how that went.

What Really Needs to be Addressed

Nikolas Cruz and other school shooters before him have similarities in common: They were suffering from some sort of behavioral and emotional disorder while on antidepressants/ psychotropics.

Bullying is one of the most prevalent reasons for school shooters actions, as was the case with Columbine, Cleveland, Sparks, and a plethora of others nationwide. These young people have emotional problems where they feel that they are outsiders. There are well-documented reports showing that these were the ones who were ostracized for their looks or personality, or were bullied because they were weaker. As a nation, it is time to come together and realize that, much to the Second Amendment absolutists’ chagrin, there is a need to govern the mentally ill better. Those among us who lack the desire or capability to handle such a responsibility need to be denied access to weapons. There are undiagnosed/diagnosed people living among us who should never be around or possess firearms.

Firearms are not the problem as we know there have been countless car rammings, knife attacks, pressure cooker bombings, fertilizer bombings, and more. When you refer to biblical scripture, Cain killed Abel with a rock! As a society, ignoring people with mental health issues is an irresponsible thing to do and ends up producing dead kids. It is time to address the real problems instead of attacking the second amendment, Dana Loesch, the NRA, and law-abiding gun owners.

How Do We Do That?

The employment of crisis actors is a remiss and irresponsible thing to do. As previously stated, doing this only adds to the problems experienced in society today. What would be more helpful is if the people who sell firearms could have access to applicants’ mental health records. Remember, Nikolas Cruz obtained his firearm legally.

After the recent shooting in FL, the people who sold Cruz the gun stated emphatically that they need more mental health information to determine whether or not it would be safe to sell a particular person a firearm. That means it would be necessary to have access to mental health records. Most weapons retailers have a test they use to vet the person who wishes to purchase a firearm from their store but what happens when a person does not exhibit excessive aggression, or crazy eyes, or extreme anxiety?

A Suggestion

  • Identify someone as a licensed firearms salesperson.
  • Substantiate a need for mental health records.
  • Provide reputable salespeople with information to help determine whether an individual should be sold a firearm.
Crisis actors are a detriment to the discussion and do not help prevent any violence, let alone school violence. They only draw attention away from mentally unstable people obtaining firearms and thwart their efforts to eliminate the second amendment by disarming law abiding citizens. The statistics coming out of democratic cities across the country show indisputably that disarming citizens only creates more victims.

  2. To the best of my knowledge, Jones has not claimed that a shooting in Parkland did not occur. He has interviewed at least two of the survivors on his show.
