Law Enforcement officials in New Zealand were holding a drill in the city center when the shooting started, just miles from where the massacre unfolded.
It took law enforcement officers in New Zealand 36 minutes to capture the terrorist who killed 50 people in two Christchurch mosques a week ago. Stunning footage exhibits that just two police officers -only one of whom possessed a gun- apprehend the suspect after his bloody rampage. I am now learning that this response time might have been longer, but authorities happened to be conducting a drill nearby practicing for a similar attack.
In what can be detailed as an highly strange “coincidence,” Chris Cahill, a detective inspector who is president of a local labor union for law enforcement officers, revealed that officers were engaged in a drill near the city center when the shooting broke out.
According to the NY Times,
The police said a special armed tactical unit arrived at Al Noor Mosque four minutes after the first officers, or 10 minutes after the initial emergency call.
Mr. Cahill said it normally would have taken longer, with team members summoned to a police station to suit up. On Friday, though, they happened to be in a training session in the city center and wearing their gear, he said.
“Any police force in the world – to get to the scene in six minutes, a specialist team there in 10 – that would be a success,” Mr. Cahill said.
Authorities in New Zealand don’t usually carry firearms, much less dress in tactical gear, so officers holding a drill with all their tactical equipment and weapons at the ready was a helpful coincidence indeed.
For those who may very well be unaware, the relevance of the drill is critical simply because that most terror attacks in recent history have coincided with drills very similar to the specific terrorism that unfolds.
In November of 2015, during the tragic attacks on Paris, it was later documented that Paris-area emergency personnel and ambulance crews were engaging in a simulated emergency exercise on the very same day. The precise nature of the drill was a simulated mass shooting attack, based on Dr. Mathieu Raux, emergency room chief at the Pitié-Salpetrière hospital in Paris.
Additionally, during the 9/11 attacks on the U.S., North American Aerospace Defense Command’s (NORAD) was in the process of a training exercise termed Vigilant Guardian, which “coincidentally” simulated aircraft being hijacked by terrorists.
A account in Aviation Week made apparent the link between the 9/11 attacks and the NORAD drills taking place at practically the same instant:
At 8:40 a.m. EDT, Tech. Sgt. Jeremy W. Powell of North American Aerospace Defense Command’s (Norad) Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS) in Rome, N.Y., took the first call from Boston Center. He notified NEADS commander Col. Robert K. Marr, Jr., of a possible hijacked airliner, American Airlines Flight 11.
“Part of the exercise?” the colonel wondered. No; this is a real-world event, he was told. Several days into a semiannual exercise known as Vigilant Guardian, NEADS was fully staffed, its key officers and enlisted supervisors already manning the operations center “battle cab.”
In retrospect, the exercise would demonstrate to be a serendipitous enabler of a speedy military response to terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. Senior officers engaged in Vigilant Guardian were manning Norad command centers throughout the U.S. and Canada, available to make instant actions.
As if these two events wasn’t a weird enough “coincidence,” the London subway attacks on 7/7 also encompassed drills occurring only days ahead of that terrorist attack.
A report by the Daily Mail stated:
Police completed a terror training exercise, which envisaged an attack on London’s transport network just days before the 7/7 atrocity, an inquest heard today.
During the ‘table top’ drill, officers were asked to respond to imaginary bombings at Waterloo, Embankment and St James’s Park Underground stations.
But there was absolutely no intelligence at the time to suggest such an attack was imminent, the hearing was told…
Christopher Coltart, barrister for some of the bereaved families, told the inquest the ‘Hanover’ exercise, which took place on July 1 and July 2 2005 and involved officers from the Met’s anti-terror branch, ‘had at its core, an attack on the Underground’.
Asked if it was simply a ‘coincidence’ that this took place just days before 7/7, Mr Allison replied: ‘That’s entirely correct.’
It appears odd that some of the most legendary terror attacks in recent history all show this common thread.
This tragic event in New Zealand is already being employed to go after free speech and gun rights. The New Zealand government started arresting folks for sharing the video of the shooter’s live stream as well as forcing new gun laws.
Another specifically peculiar coincidence is the truth that 30 survivors of the Parkland shooting traveled to Christchurch last July. The objective of that trip, based on Sandi Davis, a sociology teacher at Stoneman Douglas, was a way to assist the students to cope with the tragedy they encountered and also as a way for them to learn how to sustain the anti-gun violence movement they had started in the Parkland shooting’s aftermath.
Parkland students mourn for friends made in Christchurch.
Nearly 30 students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School traveled there last summer to cope with their trauma.

The frequency of terror drills, which mirror the genuine terrorist attacks, being run in such close proximity to the real events taking place begs the question of whether these drills mirroring actual events are genuinely just a “coincidence,” or are maybe an sign of something much more menacing. Either way, this terrorist scumbag who murdered innocent individuals will have his plans of stoking hatred and divide come to fruition as the media and government play right into his plan.
