On Wednesday, BBC News reported the discovery that the D.C. Police’s SWAT team was ready to neutralize the Navy Yard mass shooting. But, the highly trained and heavily armed, elite tactical group was, instead, ordered to stand down and leave the scene. The Capitol Police promised a full investigation. Today, BBC News reported more disturbing information. No one has talked to the SWAT team members. Not even for the protocol debriefing.
BBC News reports,
Members of a Washington DC Swat team who the BBC has learned were ordered not to respond to Monday’s Navy Yard shootings have yet to be contacted by the authorities.
The Capitol Police tactical response team was told by a supervisor to leave the scene instead of aiding municipal officers, sources told the BBC.
Meanwhile, the department has installed a new leader of the elite unit. No reason has been given for the decision.
Gunman Aaron Alexis killed 12 people.
The BBC has also learned that four members of the highly trained team have applied for temporary leave, as they “grapple” with the aftermath of the incident.
The Capitol Police department has not yet granted the request, nor given approval for them to use their own paid time off.
Days after the shooting, none of the officers has been questioned by officials or investigators from a special panel that was convened on Wednesday.
Members of the Containment and Emergency Response Team (Cert) are typically debriefed “right away, at the very least the following day” after an incident, a Capitol Police source said.
“[They] haven’t even been given the courtesy of a debrief… They have not even been given an answer as to why the decision was made that they should not respond,” the source added.
Another Capitol Police source close to the incident told the BBC: “No-one’s talked to these officers since this happened.”
How do they explain this? This is beginning to be a pattern at gun free zones. How is it too that Aaron had been running to the police telling them that the pentagon was after him to kill him, and that they were shooting microwave beams at him several times and he still gets his military top secret clearance to the Navy Yard? How is it that he shot through his neighbor wall with a gun and in another incident someones tire and he still gets his military top secret clearance? He had to get through two strict security check points by the MP’s and then go into a secure room where the guns were locked up. Isn’t strange that the night before Obama was talking about gun control again and the very next day this very mysterious shooting? Of course the mainstream media throws the race card in there saying he wasn’t happy with racist whites, who knows if that is even true? Let’s blame it on him playing “Call of Duty” shoot em up game often. Don’t forget it’s the legal gun owners fault as well. Was he under mind control from the government and he went in to shoot them up before they controlled him to go on a shooting elsewhere? The Truth Channel will continue to dig deeper in this shady story and keep you updated.
