In the Fri. Sept 25, 2015 episode “Worst Case Scenario” of CBS police drama “Blue Bloods”, the story (spoiler alert) consisted mainly of a worldwide terrorist plot in which bombs are being set off in cities. A stripper is told by a patron that he is going to have 72 virgins so she calls the police. In a connected story an Afghani immigrant is trying to get the attention of several police officers. He tells the police after an interpreter is found that his tenants are making bombs. One of the tenants turns out to be the patron that was reported by the stripper.
The episode is standard TV fare for the most part but at the end (spoiler alert) Chief Frank Reagan played by Tom Selleck lies in a press conference and claims that the two shootouts which killed the terrorists were unrelated to each other and the other bombings. It is followed up with a discussion over dinner by the Chief’s family that they don’t want to know about close calls. The problem with this in the real world is that events can be connected in unexpected ways.
For example in 2007 Matthew Murray manufactured biological weapons during his lead up to the YWAM and New Life shooting spree. The FBI and several Colorado police departments did not tell the population about his activities. Then in 2012 James Holmes was attending the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus (UCD AMC) that was a Bio Safety Level 3 facility. Holmes then deployed biological weapons over several attacks including a retrovirus in the Century 16 Theater in Aurora, Colorado. Then shortly after, an Iranian terrorist named Mohammad Arianfar admitted that his group was behind both the Aurora Theater, UCD AMC, YWAM and other slow acting bioweapon attacks.
Lying to the public is however a slippery slope. In order to continue the original lies the FBI/JTTF have tried to intimidate this reporter by claiming it was illegal to ask professors covered at the time by the gag order about Holmes’ access to bioweapons. They continued later with threats of handcuffs. Just recently on Sept 24, 2015 they falsely claimed that I or someone spoofing my account was sending inappropriate pictures to a victim.
Not only have the authorities been lying to and about reporters, Arapahoe County DA George Brauchler lied to the jury in the Aurora Theater attack case by claiming that James Holmes stopped shooting in the theater because his gun jammed. However, evidence such as shell casings shows that when the assault rifle jammed Holmes switched to firing a handgun. He then stopped firing and left the theater with a working partially loaded handgun. He even cleared the rifle jam outside of the theater. The rifle was found near the rear exit with a working bullet in the chamber. James Holmes went into the theater to deploy a bioweapon, once he accomplished his mission, he left the theater and waited for the police because surrendering in body armor gave him the best chance of living to see the results of the biological weapons.
Had the authorities just told the truth to the public about Matthew Murray, then when a cybersleuth vigilante found out about plans of a group tied to Mohammad Arianfar to buy medical equipment to facilitate the manufacture of bioagents in February 2012, UCD AMC might have been able to stop James Holmes who bought tear gas canisters on May 10, 2012 to deploy the bioagents. Telling the truth would have least allowed the people to take precautions and allow them to protect themselves.
In the “Blue Bloods” episode the stripper only called the police because of the information about the 72 virgins which was released in the real world.
