Word I'm getting right now is that the woman who was shot has died and was only 17 years old. I have a feeling students will be learning her name in school a century from now.
The videos on the matter are being actively removed and suppressed at many sites. The woman's name has not been released and other than using this matter for political purposes against the other dance team I get the impression that "they" are doing the best "they" can to ensure this is forgotten news since it does not fit the narrative that some have planned.

In the UK it's reported she was in the Air Force for 14 years. If they've ID'd the right person, she's well into adulthood.

I REALLY hope "the other side" doesn't come out to counter protest.

I actually implemented the preparatory steps of my "on water" bugout plan yesterday. That's how close I live to the events of yesterday.
All that remained was to cast off the lines and go. I remember thinking "I can't believe I'm actually doing this."

I am still having trouble finding the videos I posted in my first link in any MSM site.

I do see headlines saying 4 dead all over the place.

The other are 3 dead due to “medical emergencies" as typically described later in the article. The old rule of if it bleeds it leads still holds true.

IMO a city the size of DC have 3+ people drop dead every day.

My initial thoughts:
The scene is chaotic but one shot is audible. There are uniformed officers behind her with rifles but no shooter is visible. She appears unarmed but to be climbing over a barricade at a doorway. The shot (based upon the lower sound level) may have originated from inside that area.

Obviously we need to wait for more facts.

A witness who can be seen on the first video speaking to the press. He said she was climbing through a "window" and the security/SS/CP told her to get down and the a shot was fired and hit her in the neck. So shot seems to have originated from the security group.

Without any other information, it's difficult to even say that the other three deaths are even related to the events at the Capitol. All we have is that MSM is connecting them, and we've seen how MSM is choosing to portray this incident. IMHO, MSM is doing all that they can to fan this spark into a full conflagration. The old adage of, "follow the money" tells us why. Screaming headlines and wild speculation combined with hastily applied controversial labels morph instantly into greater market share and higher ad revenue. I swear, if I ever start a country of my own I will make freedom of the press and freedom of speech a cornerstone, but bar protection for it if profit is involved. :?

In any case, bottom line is that as a prepping community our best overall strategy right now is to avoid the area, make sure we're ready for any local unrest in our communities, and ensure we are supplied and prepared for any extended loss of services or deliveries. TBH, I briefly considered going to DC yesterday, seeing it as a demonstration similar in style to the Second Amendment protest in Richmond in 2019, but only briefly. I would hesitate to go anywhere unarmed these days, and my permits are not good in DC. Additionally, I try to avoid any activity that could have a negative impact on my spouse's employment, and that touches on something I want to address here. What you may say or do on social media these days may never come back to haunt you, or may even be cheered and applauded...today. Tomorrow, well, that could be a very different story. I would strongly advise maintaining a lower social media profile these days and for the foreseeable future. My personal plan of action is to be as "grey man" as possible, well, as possible as an admin of a prepping site can be. :lol:

That is exactly why the matter in the news includes the extra 3 "medical related deaths".
The desire is to drive people to cover.

Yeah, I guess it depends on what you see as likely threats in your life. Personally I try to adopt the "any personal information you make available is likely to be used against you" philosophy. Of course, I also break that rule, especially here. We have seen police use social media to get crime leads regularly, and it's easy for an algorithm to lump any person into a group that gets increased scrutiny by law enforcement. Any more that even means leaving my phone at home when I go out due to the rise of Geo-fence warrants. Just having a phone present within a certain distance of a reported crime can land someone on the list of suspects.

Keeping police from having reasons to visit me at my home increases the chance my dog won't get shot. :)

I'm going to disagree with that assessment. It wasn't done to drive people to cover, it was done first, to sensationalize the event even further than it already was because sensationalism generates clicks and clicks generate ad revenue and, second, to further the MSM political agenda. The motive for most things is profit, and not always monetary profit.

Irrelevant and off-topic. Let's stick with the prepping aspects of this event, not the possible media spin or speculation about people's background.

NT2C, I told you exactly what I was going to ask in response to Raptor's posting containing the politicized othering term "they". I reported it and you asked me why. At the same time, I was having difficulty posting and you helped me out, knowing exactly what I was going to post, yet now it's irrelevant.
Good night and good luck.

Both are off-topic and irrelevant, not just what you posted. Let's get back to the topic at hand.

If it's the 3 vids in your post with links to the shooting, all three are working for me. Though I may not know what MSM may be if you refer to other links.

The events of the last year haven't hit me all that hard other than annoyances. Except for having to lay off most of my crew. That was rough. But I was not that worked up over the news.

The picture of the House Chamber barricaded with furniture and guards having their guns pulled messed with me. I wasn't too productive at work the rest of the day.

It's a little silly for me to be impacted by that one image. I live in a region of the US that had insurgents make arson and IED attacks against government buildings every single night for months this last year. Some could argue the storming of the US Capitol was relatively minor in comparison.

But this could be a different game now. This last year most of the fighting I have seen and perceived has been extremists from one "side" fighting the moderates of the same "side." The fighting over this election could potentially bring the "other side" into the fighting in a whole new way. I'm not arguing this is reality or is what will happen. I'm admitting my concerns and acknowledging others may have good cause for concern.

Suddenly I'm concerned about my extended family having enough ammo, backup cooking abilities, emergency lighting, medical supplies, etc. I'm in pretty good shape for myself, but my ability to support loved ones in time of trouble is limited.

I'm trying to help them become more resilient to times of trouble without sounding like a paranoid lunatic.

At the same time, I don't think it's the end of the world. I am still contributing a large part of my income to both my 401k and my IRA. I would encourage others to do so as well. I am contacting my insurance agent to ask about the impact of civil disturbances on my home insurance. I recommend others do the same. Does any of your insurance help with damage from riots? I have no idea, and that's a FAIL for me. What about your car? I drive a 25 year old honda civic that's not worth insuring (but I have good medical coverage for me and passengers in it). But some people here drive much more valuable cars. Might be worth checking with your insurance agent.
