Synopsis: Texas School Shooting

Published

on

Around 7:40 a.m. CDT on May 18, 2018, Dimitrios Pagourtzis began to open fire in the art classroom at Sante Fe High School.  The shooter has been taken into custody, 10 people have been fatally shot, and 13 others have been wounded.

From the perspective of those who were there

“I was sitting in my classroom and I heard very loud booms and I didn’t know what they were.  I was confused but after I heard screaming, I figured out what they were, got up immediately and started to run.  I almost ran out of the school but I hid instead with the other students.  I was there for maybe 30 minutes I was on the phone with my mom the whole time.  They found us and escorted us.” – Paige Curry (student)

“I heard people were hurt and the gunshots were from a classroom maybe three doors down.  I heard five [shots] maybe.  It was one boom, then another boom very loud.  It wasn’t rapid.” – Paige Curry (student)

“You could smell the gunpowder that came from the gun.  We were all scared because it was near us.” – Liberty Wheeler (student)

“The teachers told everybody to run after three shots were heard so we all took off and ran into the trees.  Then we heard four more shots so we jumped the fence into some dude’s house and ran into a car wash.  While we were sitting down trying to figure out what just happened I saw a girl who had been shot in the kneecap.” – Tyler Turner (student)

“A kid came out.  He had a black-like trench coat on, a sawed-off shotgun with a pistol grip, and I seen something sharp on his chest.  Then, he turned, and instead of looking our way, he just grabbed the backpack and went right back into the art room.  We shut the door in our classroom, turned off all the lights, did everything we could to get the students safe.  Then, the teacher actually ran and pulled the fire alarm, because we had no service to call 911 to let anyone know that there was a shooter.” – Damon Rabon (student)

‘Nobody was expecting this….nobody’

“He is a quiet boy.  You would never think he would do anything like this.” – Stelios Sitaras (Greek Orthodox Priest)

“[Pagourtzis] was actually a pretty nice kid.  Nobody was expecting this….nobody.” – Christopher Kurass (student)

“He’s been picked on by coaches before for smelling bad and stuff like that and he doesn’t really talk to very many people.  He wears a trench coat every day and it’s like 90 degrees out here.  I heard that he wore a shirt today and it said ‘born to kill,’ the shirt he was wearing, I don’t even know how the school can allow that.” – Dustin Severin (student)

“We also know information already that the shooter has information contained in his journal and cellphone that he said that not only did he want to commit the shooting, but he wanted to commit suicide after the shooting.  As you probably know, he gave himself up and admitted at the time that he didn’t have the courage to commit the suicide that he wanted to take his own life earlier.” – Texas Governor Greg Abbott

Possible signs

On April 30th, 2018, Dimitrios Pagourtzis posted a photo of his shirt that said “Born To Kill” on his Facebook.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis posted numerous images of his black trench coat that he wore during the shooting, which had fascist and occultic pins/decals.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis made a Facebook post explaining the symbolism behind his pins/decals: “Hammer and Sickle = Rebellion, Rising Sun = Kamikaze Tactics, Iron Cross = Bravery, Baphomet = Evil, Cthulu = Power.”

Dimitrios Pagourtzis also posted a photo of a handgun, knife and tactical flashlight to his Instagram page.

Law enforcement also reports that the suspect posted an image of a Pentagram with the caption “dangerous days” on the Friday before the shooting.

Active shooter plan, and two armed police officers

On March 19, 2018, Sante Fe High School conducted an active shooter drill, which was hosted by the Santa Fe ISD Police Department.

“There was about 30 seconds to three minutes of straight chaos,” said Damon Rabon.  While other students began to panic, Rabon and others who remembered the training they received acted upon their impulses.  “Me and a couple other students were like, ‘Get in the corner, we’ve done this before, grab the desk, barricade the door. We were doing all that like we were taught to do.”

During the shooting, there were 2 armed police officers walking around the school.  One officer was shot when the officer approached Dimitrios Pagourtzis, while other officers talked with Dimitrios Pagourtzis.  Dimitrios Pagourtzis finally surrendered after officers talked him into surrendering.  The episode of horror lasted around 30 minutes, according to witnesses and court records.

The school district agreed last fall that it would begin to arm teachers under the Texas school marshal program, which is designed to arm teachers in order to protect students.

What if teachers were armed?  Could they have prevented more students from dying?  If more teachers volunteer to arm themselves in states that allow these programs, some of these atrocities might be prevented in the future.

The victims

  • Cynthia Tisdale (Substitute Teacher)
  • Glenda Anne Perkins (Teacher)
  • Sabika Sheikh (Student)
  • Chris Stone (Student)
  • Jared Black (Student)
  • Shana Fisher (Student)
  • Kimberly Vaughan (Student)
  • Angelique Ramirez (Student)
  • Christian Riley Garcia (Student)
  • Aaron Kyle McLeod (Student)

The parents

The family of Dimitrios Pagourtzis released a statemement on May 19, 2018, saying that they are “shocked and confused” by what happened and the incident “seems incompatible with the boy we love.”

The shooter’s parents and classmates say that they saw no warning signs or any sort of trouble before the shooting.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis used his dad’s shotgun and .38 revolver.

These are the facts that have been released to the public so far, and as time goes on more will be revealed.

While evaluating all the evidence, eyewitness accounts, and stories, there is one conclusion that must be drawn from this event.

It starts in the home.

It starts with the parents.

Page 416 of the report  titled, A Review of Various Actions by theFederal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election, reads:

“Among the general discussion of political issues by FBI Attorney 2, we identified three instant message exchanges that raised concerns of potential bias.

The first of these exchanges was on October 28, 2016, shortly after Comey’s October 28 letter to Congress that effectively announced the reopening of the Midyear investigation. FBI Attorney 2 sent similar messages to four different FBI employees.

The timestamps of these messages are included below.”

happiness in the dark time of the Republic’s destruction”

Indictment unsealed, Wolfe arrested for lying about leaking from Senate to Media with encrypted messaging aps

Published

on

Thursday, Jim Wolfe, a former staff employee,  was arrested for lying to the FBI about talking to the Media. In fact he had been leaking non-public information, so he could help shape public opinion about the 2016 election.

Former U.S. Senate Employee Indicted on False Statements Charges

Longtime Director of Security for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Accused of Lying to FBI About Repeated Contacts with Reporters

            WASHINGTON – A former staff employee of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) has been indicted and arrested on charges of making false statements to special agents of the FBI during the course of an investigation into the unlawful disclosure of classified information, announced Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie K. Liu, and Timothy M. Dunham, Special Agent in Charge of the Counterintelligence Division of the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

James A. Wolfe, 58, of Ellicott City, Md., was indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts of violating Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001. At the time he made the alleged false statements to the FBI, Wolfe was Director of Security for the SSCI, a position he held for approximately 29 years. As SSCI Director of Security, Wolfe was entrusted with access to classified SECRET and TOP SECRET information provided by the Executive Branch, including the U.S. Intelligence Community, to the SSCI.  In this position, Wolfe was responsible for safeguarding all classified information in the possession of the SSCI.

“The Attorney General has stated that investigations and prosecutions of unauthorized disclosure of controlled information are a priority of the Department of Justice.  The allegations in this indictment are doubly troubling as the false statements concern the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive and confidential information,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers.  “Those entrusted with sensitive information must discharge their duties with honesty and integrity, and that includes telling the truth to law enforcement.”

“Mr. Wolfe’s alleged conduct is a betrayal of the extraordinary public trust that had been placed in him,” said U.S. Attorney Liu. “It is hoped that these charges will be a warning to those who might lie to law enforcement to the detriment of the United States.

“All individuals in positions of trust must be held to the highest of standards, as the American public deserves no less,” said Special Agent in Charge Dunham.  “As alleged in this indictment, Mr. Wolfe failed to meet those standards in his repeated lies to federal agents concerning the unauthorized disclosure of information.  His arrest demonstrates that this conduct will not be tolerated, and those that engage in it will be held accountable.”

The charges in the indictment are merely allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The maximum penalty for each count of making a false statement to federal law enforcement agents is five years in prison. The maximum statutory sentences are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes. The sentencing of the defendant, if he is later convicted, will be determined by the court after considering the advisory Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

The investigation into this matter is being conducted by the FBI’s Washington Field Office.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys for the District of Columbia, with assistance from the Counterintelligence and Export Control Section, National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Pattern of abuse,”The problem is McCabe and Comey, but mostly Mueller”, Robyn Gritz talks

Published

on

This is part one of a series of conversations:

Populist Wire spoke with Robyn Gritz, former FBI  agent, who spent 16 years at the FBI, where she investigated a series of major national security threats. But she says that her forced retirement happened as a result of her problems with her supervisors, who pushed her out and yanked her security clearance.

“I was the only female on my squad for pretty much 7 years. Everyone treated me just like another agent. I had an issue with one supervisor sexually harassing me but Newark executive management jump in and handled it,” Gritz told Populist Wire.

Gritz spent a decade fighting terrorism, in 2015 she started warning people about how the bureau treats women and the effects of fighting for law and order ” I had battled al-Qaida in Iraq, the Taliban,” Gritz said.

For 15 years her bosses at the FBI gave her excellent or outstanding performance reviews until one man labeled her overly emotional, in what appears to be a campaign to get rid of her out of counter-terrorism jobs.

RETALIATED AGAINST FOR COMPLAINING

“The guys who I have worked directly with up in Newark are pissed about what happened to me. Most of them have reached out. State Troopers, Commerce Agents etc. I used to do fugitive raids with another squad. I never had an issue. They knew I was prior law enforcement and was in Camden, NJ. The joke was about me having no issue with arrests and the head of SWAT at the time always picked me as his partner. He said I was tactically sound. Aka one of the team,” she said.

“I had issues with Mccabe when we were in Washington Field but I thought we had worked it out. I hear now that I was wrong. He’s so unethical. If I had an issue with anyone, I addressed it with them respectfully. I guess I should have taken the class in how to shank your co-workers. I had top secret emails showing I had to be in a scif in a building after their records showed I had left,” said Gritz.

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE FBI?

“Recruiting is not the problem. Retention and culture are,” she said. There are a number of cases she is following of female FBI agents who have brought lawsuits against their male superiors.

The general concern is for the FBI whistleblowers, who are retaliated against for turning in their superiors.

“My case is in limbo and still in the EEOC process. I’ve been waiting two years for a decision by a judge on a motion we filed, 2 years ago. My attorney passed away last month. I wrote a letter to Comey requesting reinstatement. I outlined 24 policies and laws broken in my case alone. I heard nothing back,” she told Pop Wire.

WHEN DID THESE PROBLEMS START?

“It changed with Mueller. The media needs to stop defending the higher ranks of the FBI. The rank and file are just as fed up,” she said.

“This double standard has been going on for decades. OIG glosses over it. They refuse to take a look at my case because it’s an EEO. But that is exactly why they need to take a look. A good portion of excellent female agents are pushed out because they stand up to the White Male Hierarchy. It’s like they bait us into filing an EEO, said Gritz.

“McCabe needs to stop cloaking himself with the hardworking and ethical employees of the FBI,” she said.

Gritz said she would like to be reinstated, but is near to 50. Gritz had retweeted this article, along with others, which she told us to show a pattern of the problems in a culture at the FBI, especially against female FBI agents.

Gitz has ongoing legal issues trying to be reinstated.
