LAX Shooter Identified, "Wanted To Kill TSA And Pigs"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Contrary to initial reports that the shooter was an off-duty NSA agent, subsequent updates have revealed that the LAX shooter, who reportedly is still dead, although unclear if he was killed before or after he was in police custody, as Paul Anthony Ciancia, a 23-year-old who was either a Los Angeles native, or from Pennsville, N.J. Additionally, we have learned that according to a law enforcement official, who was briefed at LAX on the investigation but not authorized to speak publicly, said the gunman was wearing fatigues and carrying a bag containing a hand-written note that said he "wanted to kill TSA and pigs." The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly. Considering the accuracy with which this news event has been broken, most of it relying on unsubstantiated and often times fake Twitter sources (some had reported earlier, falsely, that the former NSA chief had been shot as well), we won't be surprised if this story were to change a few more times.

From My Fox LA:

A law enforcement official told the The Associated Press that the suspect in the Los Angeles airport shooting is a 23-year-old man from New Jersey who wrote a rant about killing Transportation Safety Administration workers.
 
A law enforcement official, who was briefed at LAX on the investigation but not authorized to speak publicly, said the gunman was wearing fatigues and carrying a bag containing a hand-written note that said he "wanted to kill TSA and pigs." The official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

The official identified him as Paul Ciancia. A second law enforcement official confirmed the identity, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The gunfire erupted around 9:30 a.m. inside the terminal that houses airlines such as Allegiant Air, Frontier, Spirit, Virgin America and JetBlue. Patrick Gannon, chief of the Airport Police Department, said the suspect walked into the airport, pulled an assault rifle out of a bag and started shooting.

"He proceeded up into the screening area where TSA screeners are and continued shooting,'' Gannon said, adding that the gunman "went past the screeners and back into the terminal itself.''

Gannon said police pursued the gunman, who was shot and taken into custody inside the terminal. The gunman's condition was not immediately known.

Interim Los Angeles Fire Chief Jim Featherstone said paramedics treated seven people at the airport, and six were taken to area hospitals. One person apparently declined to be transported, fire officials said.

Officials at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center said it was treating three male patients, one in critical condition and two in fair condition. At least two other patients were believed to be at Harbor UCLA Medical Center, but their conditions were not immediately known. News media outlets reported that one patient who was taken to Harbor UCLA had died.

Multiple media outlets, citing unnamed sources, reported that one TSA agent was killed in the gunfire, but police would not confirm the reports.

The gunman was described by some witnesses as a young white male. Police and fire officials said they could not confirm reports that the gunman was an off-duty TSA agent.

Some initial reports indicated that a second suspect had been arrested, but Gannon said, "This was a lone shooter,'' and the gunman "was the only person that was armed in this incident.''

David Bowdich, FBI special agent in charge, declined to provide any details of the investigation, but said, "At this point, we do not see any additional threats here at the airport.''

Aside from the alleged note, the shooter's motives are unclear as of yet.

None of this really happened, because the firearm he allegedly used has been illegal in California since 2000.

Since the weapon he was alleged to have used was illegal, clearly this whole "shooting" is merely the figment of someone's imagination.

Of course it didn't happen. Because if 100 people in LA county or NYC woke up one morning and decided that they "weren't going to take it anymore" then they could no longer maintain the Illusion of Control, at least not without another really large dose of stupid pills for the masses. But based on this fork test, she's not quite done yet...

Not sure what brought it up last week but the word "pig" came up and I told my teenage kid that no one uses that term anymore.  I was shocked when I read that this 23 yr old used the term.  Someone might want to tell the script writers that it isn't the late 70's anymore.  Well maybe the economy is.

That's right. "Off the pigs!" was the ghetto railing cry in the late 60s and early 70s. It looks like this note found was probably written by someone(some cop) in his sixties.

Things are getting freaky out there, regardless of whether the note is real.  Just last week:

 

“Witnesses stated that this gentlemen told them to call the police and that he would be waiting for them,” said Chief Allen Banks of the Albuquerque Police Department.

APD says Chase was waiting at the corner of Broadway Avenue and Avenida Cesar Chavez, then ambushed the first officers arriving on the scene.

 

http://www.krqe.com/news/crime/apd-chief-details-suspects-shooting-rampage

There is also a video at the link as well. 

 

They're claiming that the guy also had a tattoo that said "Cop Killer."  Oddly enough, a friend of mine used to live right across the street from the gas station that the chase ended.

Dunno.  Berquenos have been known to do some crazy shit, and the police department is typically hated by just about everybody on account of them shooting a fuckton of people.  Unlike many other police departments, APD officers are very proficient with their firearms, so most people wind up in the morgue, not the hospital.

This might have something to do with "bounties" of $300-$500 that the union gives to every APD cop who shoots a serf.   Shootings surged 400% after the policy was enacted.  The police union pleads that it's simply a way to let an officer relax after the stress of a shooting incident; So that officers can "find a place to have some privacy and time to decompress outside the Albuquerque area." 

Cops exist to protect and serve the banks and the big crimminals who buy and enforce the laws.  For the little crimminals (i.e. everyone else), well, these pigs mentally value our lives at less than 500 clownbux.

Google and the local MSM fishwrap have flushed the original article down the memory hole.  Here is a summary article from Reason.

If you have relatives that are psychotic then perhaps you have a propensity for psychosis? Perhaps the evidence of that underlying psychosis is manifested through your posts?

This whole things reeks of False Flag. Remember CIA doctrine calls for events where it is important that innocent people are killed, alah the Balonia, Italy train station during operation Gladio.

Then the goal was to blame the Communist. Today the goal is to get rid of the Second Amendment. Both LAX and Boston followed a previously practiced scenario. And both LAX and Boston actual events followed the practiced scenario script.

You would need to stage a false flag shooting in a place where you could be sure there was no wild card bystander with a carry permit and actual live ammo.  Real bullets in the mix would really screw thing up. 

An airport tarmac inside security is probably one of the few public places filled with witnesses that could be sure to fall into that category.

The part that will probably convince me it is real is the fact he was taken alive & not conveniently dead.. not so easily dissapeared.

We're told the shooter got through tight airport security and his note identifies .gov employees for execution. All too dodgy for me to accept without further inquiry. Is that tin foil hat-ish? Not really when you consider Operation Northwoods, a CIA plot to kill Americans in staged events:-

 

James Bamford wrote on Northwoods:

'Operation Northwoods, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war.'


BTW, President Kennedy rejected this diabolical plot, but senior CIA commanders today were trained and promoted by the men who approved Operation Northwoods.

Rather substantiates the growing doubts about the official version of 9/11 and the Boston bombing, don't you think?

Especially as the plot also suggested using actors and fake funerals.

The goal? Win public support for war abroad and other devious federal policy objectives.

Jay Leno Compares Obama to Con Artist for Health Care Lie

Wednesday night, Leno tore into Obama's lie about being able to keep
your existing health care plan under ObamaCare with a joke that might
have left a mark on the administration.

"Con artists are using confusion over ObamaCare to sign people up for
what they call fake health insurance. The scammers lure victims with
false promises, they say stuff like, 'If you like your health care plan,
you can keep your health care plan.'"

...

Would it not be ironic if one of these people losing their health insurance goes postal? I seem to recall someone else on ZH calling Obama a con man ...
