Chaos erupted just before 9 p.m. when a pair of snipers in elevated positions opened fire on officers, who were protecting protesters, police said.
Some of the 11 officers were shot in the back, police said, adding that one civilian was wounded.
Not sure what 9 and 11 are supposed to have represented in the public imagination 15 years ago, but today it seems they are getting it all mixed up in a desperate attempt to just remind people of the numbers 9 and 11 at every opportunity, even absurdly, without strong reiterated symbolism. Perhaps I am just not the target audience for this PsyOp, but if the sloppy numbers weren't enough, there have to be two towers as well, if only alluded to with almost carefully scripted language.
Police said the suspects were situated on two different perches or garages.
"Perches" is quite an odd sort of word to pick except that it encapsulates and conflates the vague difference between two meanings of a spot: a simple place or a raised place. I.e.; great for memories of towers.
Kind of interesting "reversal" going on here, with evil "perches" for the "evil black people" rather than "noble" towers of "good white culture" being the target. Interesting too, that it falls on the anniversary of 9/11's British brother event the 7/7 bombings, and it reminds us of the alleged JFK shooting in Dallas, with the word "sniper" being used to describe a gunman.
Naturally, they waited until reports came in of gunshots "just before" 9pm before they could clear the official 9 number.
Some (sorry to say) confusing background information you may want to know about the convoluted official story: in a couple (rather sadly ordinary) incidents of police violence on African Americans (and please don't tell me cops mistreating Black people is a PsyOp, because this is something my friends and I have seen/witnessed/experienced and discuss at length almost daily. Though, it's obviously safe to assume the phenomenon of violent racism is exploited and turned into various PsyOps because it is a real thing that can manipulate people's emotions — including my own to a degree, unfortunately.) some rather "ordinary" (if ordinarily ineffective) protests have sprung up. As a result of police violence, more and more demonstrations have driven black people and allies to march and demand social justice. Some of the violent incidents seem rather unreal. Others, unfortunately, may be quite real, not staged and quite upsetting, though spun into the central dialogue being driven/designed by the military agenda.
You could read this seemingly unreal "sniping" imagery/incident a number of ways, either as police-in-league-with-the-media sort of "anti-Black" propaganda, or something which spurs on Black people and makes them feel empowered as militants, or something else. But, it is more of the same divide-and-conquer, stir-the-shit, make-people-angry sort of politics of the PsyOperators, in my opinion. As to the ultimate goal, it doesn't seem clear, though if we see more "[insert target demographics] now buying more guns" stories cropping up after this, as we did with Orlando, we would know something about how that happened.
