Derrick Bird and the Cumbria Shootings, UK, 2/6/2010

This is the forum dedicated to all 'minor' local psyops - phony murders, kidnappings and whatnot. It has now become evident that the news media constantly feeds the public with entirely fake stories - in order to keep us in eternal fear of our next-door neighbours and fellow citizens.

Derrick Bird and the Cumbria Shootings, UK, 2/6/2010

Postby Euphoria on Fri Sep 14, 2012 1:52 pm

The 'Cumbria shootings' refers to a supposed 'killing spree' that took place on 2 June 2010 (2+6+1+2=11) when a lone gunman, Derrick Bird, killed 12 people and injured 11 others before killing himself in Cumbria, England.

There is a smoking gun in Wikipedia:

'...Along with the 1987 Hungerford massacre and the 1996 Dunblane massacre, it is one of the worst criminal acts involving firearms in British history...'

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumbria_shootings

The 'shootings' sparked a manhunt by the Cumbria Constabulary, with assistance from Civil Nuclear Constabulary officers.

Again, we have a royal visit. The Queen paid tribute to the victims and the Prince of Wales later visited Whitehaven in the wake of the tragedy. The Prime Minister David Cameron and Home Secretary Theresa May also visited West Cumbria.

Also in common with other shooting PSYOPs in the UK, it turned out to be quite a money-spinner. A memorial fund was set up to aid 'victims and affected communities.'

The above are obviously fairly dodgy images.

The above three images: maybe not quite so dodgy, but there appears to be something wrong with the shirt (at least in the last two)?

In addition, it is worth noting that the RAF Search and Rescue Force and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance responded to the 'casualties.' A major incident was declared by North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust at West Cumberland Hospital, Whitehaven, with the accident and emergency department at the Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle, on full incident stand-by.

The perps?

I understand Rob Purdham announced his retirement from Rugby League at the end of the 2011 season, in order to return home to the family farm in Cumbria. Obviously from quite a privileged background. There isn't much money left in farming in the UK anymore...

Image

Above: Stuart 'call me Stu' Hyde, until recently the Deputy Chief Constable of Cumbria. He has been very outspoken on Twitter (word crime) offences, and I entered into an email exchange on this issue - as well as shooting PSYOPs in general - with Hyde in May this year:

Image

Now, I learn today (I write this on 14th September 2012) that Stuart Hyde has been suspended for misconduct! See below:

Image

Then we have Dr Barrie Walker, who claimed to have personally treated the sims (or actors playing survivors). See below:

I can find Dr Barrie Walker in the phone book (192.com), but I realise that doesn't prove his existence. I feel this is probably a real person though...

Vicsims?

There are lots of other very low quality images. For example, the solicitor Kevin Commons, below:

And below, left to right Susan Hughes, Kenneth Fishburn and Isaac Dixon:

Below, left to right Jamie Clark, Michael Pike and Jane Robinson:

Running ELA on these won't necessarily prove anything, because it's a composite image (supposedly resaved) but they are clearly of unsatisfactory quality.

'Derrick Bird' character profile

Postby Euphoria on Fri Sep 14, 2012 2:01 pm

In common with other PSYOPs, we see an effort to paint a picture of a sexually frustrated loner!

A fellow taxi driver, who described himself as one of Bird's best friends, and was shot in the hand, has claimed that Bird had a relationship with a Thai girl he met on holiday in Pattaya, Thailand. It has been further claimed by another friend of Bird that he had sent £1,000 to the girl, who subsequently ended their relationship via a text message; he added that Bird had been "made a fool out of"

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/ ... laims.html

He is also presented as somewhat anti-establishment, or anti-government:

Police investigating the killings have also found that Bird was the subject of an ongoing tax investigation by HM Revenue and Customs for tax evasion. This suggests that he could have been pressurised by the threat of possible future prosecution and punishment at the time of the killings, suggesting a possible cause of his actions.[34] According to Mark Cooper, a fellow taxi driver who had known him for 15 years, Bird had accumulated £60,000 in a secret bank account and was worried he would be sent to prison for hiding the cash from HM Revenue & Customs.

Motives for Cumbria Shootings PSYOP?

I'm sure there was no record! This element of the PSYOP was fairly easy to pull off...An unidentified source makes an unprovable claim, and the hospital has no details of the encounter.

Image

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/ ... s-say.html

So, again we have Keith Vaz (implicated in the Anuj Bidve/Psycho Stapleton PSYOP) and others advocating a crackdown on air rifles, and also emphasising the issue of those with 'mental health problems' having access to guns.

'Survivors:' pub landlord Harry Berger

Remember, the weapons of choice for 'Derrick Bird' were supposedly a George Fisher 12 gauge double-barreled shotgun and a CZ 452-2E ZKM .22-calibre bolt-acton rifle.

Does this wound look realistic?!

Garry Purdham vicsim?

Above: What does everybody think? A white background again. As well as problems with the ears, and the outline of the face.

Now, 'Garry Purdham' has a Wickedpedia entry...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garry_Purdham

Image

So despite 'Garry' being pictured playing rugby numerous times, and appearing in half a dozen rugby-type backdrops, it seems he didn't play an actual game for Workington Town!

Now, below I see we have yet another 'memorial fund' - this time established in memory of 'Garry.'

It seems that Ian Rooney, John Brocklebank and Workington Town chairman David Bowden are all insiders in this hoax.
