New Jersey Mall Evacuated (Again): Reports Of Shots Fired And Vehicle Fire

Tyler Durden's picture


For the second time in a few short months, the Paramus Mall at Garden State Plaza is being evacuated. There are no reports that an active shooter is present but shots were heard fired. There is also a car fire (which some are noting could have been responsible for the 'popping sounds'). Police are on scene and shoppers are being evacuated as the anxiety is (as one would imagine) high. There are currently no reports of injuries.


Evacuations are under way with local TV stations claiming shots fired...



People are being evacuated...

Police are on scene...

But some are noting that there is also a car fire that could have been responsible for the popping sounds...


The Garden State Plaza Mall was also the subject of a horror last Nov. 4, when Richard Shoop, 20, of Teaneck walked through the mall with a rifle that had been modified to look like an AK-47, randomly firing shots before turning the gun on himself.

New Jersey is full of PUSSIES !!!

A couple of car tires explode and they wet their pants.

Oh yeah, net neutral for the markets - they already know about New Jersey.

Those responsible are in BIG TROUBLE as those parking lots are 'car arson-free zones.'

Maybe the Iranians or Maybe the Cops in General, anybody ever watch "The Shield". Who's paying for all this. Let's pour it on for some overtime.

So a Ford electrical system caught fire and it's a terrorist threat? Read the recalls boys! Or maybe we should put Ford Motor Co. on a watch list.

Must keep the terrorist boogeyman alive.

Must keep the sheep in a constant state of fear.  They're easier to herd/control that way.

Sometimes it is the combination of several SSRI's or SSRI & ADHD medication.  I was taking Prozac & Adderall the problem was that end of day crasj when it started to wear off.   Feeling can only be described as very edgy, agitated & irritable and crying about why everyone hates me & is out to get me

Sure, but why would anyone who has any common sense take SSRI and ADHD drugs in the first place, let alone, together?

Drugs are a symptom of the cause.

Other answers are available, and are real answers.

I call bullshit. Everyone knows guns are prohibited in New Jersey.* 

* Possibly it is a cop or federal agency SWAT team shooting things up. That's allowed in FUSA.

Yes, yes & yes. Safe to say when hearing about these "active shooter" drills to first think False Flag & which Criminal UNITED STATES, CORP. INC. Agency to point the finger at.

Maybe there was a dog in the area.

Not any dog, but like a shivering, limping, skiny stray dog. A threst to public safety. Hence the SWAT team, the shooting, granades, mine resistant vehicles. Christy declairs Martial Law and appoints himself Field Marshal, and awards himself New Joisees highest award, Iron Donut, First Degree .

I live in NJ.  It's no big deal here, we are used to being shot at. It's F'n NJ.  Need I say more ? Just don't ding my door when you get your fat ass out of your car or you may not make it in to the mall.

+1 use of hyperbole.

Jersey is a State. The whole state is not as you describe. Certain Cities(Newark, Trenton), yes.

Ok, some quick questions:

Was Rabbi Shmuley Boteach nearby? Again? (Making pleas for disarmament of Americans?)

Also is there any chance - whatsoever - that this is related to the recent upsurge in mall "active shooter drills?"

Like this one:

Lack of imagination.

These things are on a repeating, predictive cycle.
