    Not gonna have a chance to experience too many events like this so it'll be worth the trip. I imagine Wing and Steve will just have to set up a lawn chair in the yard.

    Fort Lauderdale Airport Shooting Hoax




    2:10 News reader corrects the crisis actor "fake witness" as to which terminal she was in to see the chaos.

    An aerial view of the chaos shows every law enforcement officer within a hundred mile radius is at this event gives an indication this is a drill that went viral. At this event are agents of the Ft. Lauderdale local police, the Sheriffs Dept, Florida Highway Patrol, Florida Bureau of Investigation, TSA agents, the FBI, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, the Dept of Homeland Security and many other law enforcement departments.

    Another giveaway this event as nothing more than a drill, it involves a gun, the event instantly goes viral, every detail of the gun(s) used & the shooter is broadcasted during the breaking news story (details that could never be used against the 'shooter' to get a conviction in court), all the witnesses interviewed give conflicting reports and the spokesperson of the event in front of the camera is surrounded by a person who represents each of the departments who participated in the drill.

    I hope the incoming administration puts a stop to these bullshit hoaxes............. just sayin.'

    Suspect Esteban Santiago ~ Jason Bermas

    Here is the reason the Fort Lauderdale airport shooting drill/hoax was concocted and why it happened in Florida:


    Dec 14, 2016

    Senate Judiciary Chairman Greg Steube, R-Sarasota, introduced a controversial measure Friday that would allow the more than 1.67 million Floridians with concealed-weapons licenses to openly carry handguns.

    Steube's bill (SB 140), which is filed for the 2017 legislative session, also would expand the places where people with concealed-weapons licenses are allowed to carry guns. It would allow them to be armed at legislative meetings; local government meetings; elementary and secondary schools; airport passenger terminals; and college and university campuses.

    A bill that would have allowed people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry guns on university and college campuses also died in the Senate Judiciary Committee during the 2016 session. This week, Rep. Scott Plakon, R-Longwood, reintroduced a House version of the campus-carry measure (HB 6005) for the 2017 session.

    Also, Rep. Jake Raburn, R-Lithia, has proposed a bill (HB 6001) that would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to bring guns into the passenger terminals of airports.

    In WWII an Englishman De-Lisle built a nearly silent weapon by playing Dr. Frankenstein and building a firearm from the bodies of other firearms.

    De_Lisele first produced a prototype in 22 cal. and used it to hunt small game.

    He approached the British commandos with his prototype and the were impressed enough to order development for a combat suitable weapon.

    They needed a subsonic (less than mach 1) round that was still lethal. They choose the US 45 cal ACP round used in the M1911 semiautomatic pistol.

    They took a Lee-Enfield 30 cal rifle and discarded the barrel. They reworked the bolt and receiver to accept the 45 cal. round. Discarded the rifles magazine and adapted the magazine of a M1911 to fit. They then adapted the barrel of a Thompson machine gun to the Enfield. The suppressor ran from the beginning of the barrel to beyond the end of the barrel. Holes had been drilled into the barrel to allow gases to vent into the suppressor.

    Working the bolt action could produce more noise than firing the gun.

    Today companies are producing reproductions.

The effect was a breeze across the open manhole cover lowered pressure in the manhole and drew air (and any dangerous gases nearby) into the manhole.

    Now OSHA requires a battery powered pumped gas tester with an audible alarm outside the manhole cover.

    I post the old methods because that is all that is available to most of use and our employers do not teach this as it shows their noncompliance with safety regulations.

    What is done is mostly Lance. Maybe a few lead techs & supervisors get the required safety equipment. Locators are told to call one of these people to the site. This results in much lowered production and if the locator does as told they are fired for low production. If not fired pay lowered until they have to leave or brake saftey regs to keep food on the table.

    Many locate firms have Safety Department whose job is a dog and pony show. The only impose requirements that don't cost much money. If they wrote up
    expensive equipment requirements they would be fired and their efforts would be covered up.
