The Poisoned Well
By: Brother Theo
The old saw that, no matter how far you run, there you are, can never be escaped. Once we develop a pattern of behaviors, we will always have to modify our future behaviors around the acts that will eventually come to define us. If you throw in some cultural guidelines, top down leadership, and a sense that you belong to a class of people that are essential, but constantly pursued by a vaguely defined entropy, and you wind up with politicians, and the apparatus that keeps the feared entropy at bay. Police, appointees, media representation, the list goes on; but every now and again, the entire lot finds itself in the same kettle, and that, boys and non-binary pronouns is what has happened in Uvalde Texas.
I have heard every kind of conspiracy theory ranging from the shooter being a cartel enforcer, to the school having been a den of pedophiles that the shooter eliminated by killing the kids whose parents were democrat groomers. Apart from their ridiculous, and frankly offensive nature, these are details, and as badly needed as the details are, they are unlikely to be discovered in the pile of CYA that will be the lot of the commission headed by representative Dustin Burrows to sort through. In an information environment that redefines the term ‘public information’, we are looking at possibly six months before a report can be cobbled together that results in the truly desired result in which Mr. Arredondo keeps both his job as chief officer of the Uvalde school police, and city council person, as well as leaving the responsible parties in eight separate agencies sparkling clean. Of course, there was nothing odd about Mr, Arredondo hiding out for two days following the shooting, and certainly nothing inappropriate about being promoted to the city council after his sterling performance during the crisis at the school; I thought his having been sworn in in secrecy was a rare touch of class as well. So, since nobody wants to ‘fess up, and accept responsibility for their actions, we at the Butcher Shop thought we should make a list of what we do know.
First, the FBI and the Texas Rangers are in charge of the investigation, or maybe it’s Dustin Burrows and a three person committee; it’s hard to say, but if there’s an accidental discovery, there are plenty of people to spread the blame around. Next, this will not be conducted as a criminal investigation, but, rather an ‘after action report’; the sort of corporate report where blameless mistakes can be identified in order to avoid future incidents of a similar nature. I feel confident that the active shooter protocol, established in 2018 by the IACP, a protocol that directs law enforcement to run toward the sound of shooting, in an effort to save as many lives as possible will likely be ignored. It can be assumed that Governor Abbotts handwritten notes, and relatively credible claims that he was misled by initial law enforcement information will leave him out of the fray, and a reasonably thick coat of varnish can be expected to coat that evidence, along with his claims. The Uvalde County Attorney General’s report can be expected to be a rubber stamp of the the three aforementioned investigations, and, since all testimony will be offered under an order of sworn secrecy, there will be no criminal investigation from that quarter.
We know that the police had a clear shot at the shooter before he entered the school, but no shot was taken due to fears that a missed shot might injure one of the soon to be dead children. We know that all eight agencies involved in failing to stop the gunman from killing his victims have engaged the services of attorneys, also known as ‘lawyering up’, to keep public records, such as body cam footage, 911 calls and so forth from being made…you know, public. We also also know that the malfunctioning door will not be explained, as information regarding it falls under the rule of secret testimony. And lastly, we know that requests for said footage will go to the state’s embattled Attorney General; that is to say Ken Paxton, who himself has been under indictment for securities fraud for eight years; heck, if his indictments were children, they’d be old enough to go to school and get shot themselves. I believe this last piece of the puzzle is the most important, as he is clearly qualified for the job of putting off any resolution to charges of negligence, cowardice, or incompetence indefinitely. Certainly anyone who can put off charges of securities fraud violations for eight years, as he plays the part of a state attorney general could put off accountability for a bunch of police indefinitely. It is clear why he is such a valuable player in the Abbott administration, as it is clearly better to know useless things, than to know nothing.
The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
