Live News Manipulation Developing! Gary Indiana Senior Social Club Shooting.
Just heard about a shooting in a Gary Indiana Senior Citizen Club where a gunman shot 4 seniors and...get this.

One of the senior Citizens shot and killed the gunman.

Now see how many online news reports you can find with this bold truth delivered.

Also see how many news 'sources' post the EXACT same story word for word.

The real news is that a would be victim saved the lives of how many others because he had the means!

Edit: for "Senior Citizen Club"

and more...same story over and over.

Bottom line: If you have a gun...
You can defend yourself and others from a gunman.

That's the real story.

But the Ministry of Truth doesn't care for you to see it when it happens.

Where'd you see the original report that an attendee shot the gunman?

They don't tell you how many people were in the club , even approximately, because that would tell you how many people were potentially saved.

They don't tell you flat out that one of the victims returned fire saving the rest.

They don't even report at any point that it could have been so much worse if the gunman wasn't killed by one of the patrons.

The story is still "developing" let's see how it develops.

 Quoting: Fret Wiz


I didn't it was on the radio and it was just the words "apparently a patron returned fire, killing the gunman"

So I looked up the story and you never find those words. Never find much in the details. All you read is how five people were shot and that the gunman exchanged fire but they never specify who it was.

The suppression of these facts are subtle but blatant.

Good catch. It's a useful story to them because of the "lone gunman" angle.

I'll have to see if it pops up in my area, too.

For Christ's sake people shit like this is important.

It's because things can happen one way and be reported another way in ways that alter your perception and opinion....

Damn it, this is why we are here fighting to defend our right to defend ourselves when it's shouldn't even be open for debate.

Exactly, they see the opportunity to report another gunman and more people killed by guns.

That somebody killed the gunman with a gun and saved lives. This is not important or helpful to them.

Yes. Yes it is.

It was safer for the guy who was able to defend himself and take out the whack job who went in there to kill at random.

This could have been a "mass shooting" event that the media loves to report but unfortunately for them it ended with that terrible twist of lawful defense.

Isn't Gary, IN overrun with violent crime already?

Is this even newsworthy in that area, OP?

Americas Most Miserable Cities - 2013 Forbes:

#19 Gary, Ind.

Gary was called the murder capital of the U.S. in the 1990s, but violent crime is down dramatically in Gary in recent years. It is still plagued by high foreclosures and a migration out of the city.

I have to leave here for the day. It would be nice to see this not slip down early into the abyss of threads long forgotten.

It's important to see the manipulation, catch it, and expose it as it happens. This is among the greatest values that GLP offers. But worthless if we fail to give a shit.

Stay strong good people. Stay safe. Stay armed.

It's not the shooting that is newsworthy,

It's the defense that is important. ESPECIALLY in a crime-ridden festering hole like Gary, Indiana.

My point being: If it's not a newsworthy story locally & it goes National with an amended or truncated storyline, there's your proof.

Details.

Bottom line: If you are met with a gunman who comes at you firing, you have little chance to survive unless you have evened the odds against him with a gun of your own.
Try to defend yourself with a phone and triggering 9-1-1 and you'll be pushing up daisies.
