Today at 11 am, at least one shooter opened fire on the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California. The center serves people with developmental disabilities.
As of now it is being reported that at least 14 people were killed and 14 more injured. Police have reported that there was possibly up to three shooters that were all heavily armed and wearing body armor.
None of the shooters are in custody, but officers are looking for a black SUV.
While many are discussing if this was a terrorist or not, nobody is really talking about the “active shooting drills” that were taking place in the area just two days prior to the shooting. This post was made to the San Bernardino County Fire Department’s Facebook page just yesterday.
A video shared out by the LA Times shows a nurse at the Inland Regional Center who got video of the police arriving to today’s shooting. The nurse, Dorothy Vong, and her coworkers first thought the police were conducting a drill.
It is understandable why Vong and her coworkers would think it was just a drill. Days ago, only 45 minutes away is where ‘active shooter drills’ were practiced at the Victor Valley College. This message was sent out to students and residents, letting them know of the drills being conducted.
“Victor Valley College officials would like to inform students and area residents that there will be an “active shooter” training exercise on the VVC campus on Monday, November 30th. There will be significant police presence at this time according to Chief Leonard Knight who said this training will last several hours.
In order to avoid any confusion, the public is being notified ahead of time. Victor Valley College Police Department (VVCPD), San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department (SBCSD), Victorville Police Station, San Bernardino County Fire Department (SBCFD), Victorville Fire Station, and American Medical Response (AMR) have planned for and are conducting this exercise to ensure coordinated, timely and effective response to the college community, as well as enhance safety at Victor Valley College.
The campus will be on lockdown causing a portion of the campus to be unavailable and the campus bus routes to be diverted until about noon on Monday. VVC Superintendent/President Roger Wagner believes these exercises and training sessions are imperative as these type of occurrences are all too common. “What I want everyone to know is that we have, on an on-going basis been assessing and implementing an improved campus security and response plan for many months. Many improvements have been made and there are still more to come.”
According to the Victor Valley College press release, this drill is to prepare the school faculty, staff and students in preparation of an active shooter occurrence within our campus community as well as a real life simulation. “Conducting and planning for this exercise will allow us to assess our emergency preparedness and review the coordination and rapid response of both police agencies.” stated Chief Knight.
The campus community will be alerted prior to the start of the exercise via an “emergency notification message” sent through the Alertus Emergency Notification System and through the Text Alert Message System. Additional pre exercise messages will provided through social media, email, classroom announcements and flyers posted around the campus.”
So why are these active shooter drills so significant days before the shooting? Before you put on your conspiracy helmet, read the following. These drills have been going on around the same time as many of our nations tragedies. A strange pattern that is repeating itself and forcing its way into the spotlight. One of the most notable is when an exercise was being conducted that involved aerial attacks on domestic targets during the 9/11 attacks.
Below is a video from The Conscious Resistance YouTube channel that goes into a bit more detail on the bizarre coincidence of these drills happening at the same time as other attacks.
