Shooting Rampage at Youtube campus, San Bruno, CA. April 3 breaking news

Peter E. Tasciotti reporting on this BREAKING NEWS event:

On April 3, 2 PM Tuesday afternoon, California's San Bruno Police, San Mateo County Sherriff, and other local police agencies responded to emergency calls of a shooting attack.  The violence broke out at the Youtube Google headquarters on Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, California.

Brent Andrew, a spokesperson for San Francisco General Hospital Trauma Center gave a press briefing. There are three patients which were transported there. At this time, what is being reported:  One female, 32;  Second female in serious condition, 27; Male in critical condition, 36 years old.  At 3:30pm PST there will be a surgeon who is giving the next update, with more details. We do not know for sure what kind of injuries, but there is every reason to assume it is gunshot wounds.  The surgeon who will update is a specialist in gunshot.

There were also one or more other victims of the shooting who were transported to another area hospital, the Stanford Medical Center.  There is one confirmed fatality at the scene, which the authorities are saying may be the shooter.  It is said to possibly be a self-inflicted wound.. The shooter is said to be: white, female, middle-aged.
The authorities are interviewing witnesses and clearing the entire building.  Police Chief Ed Barberini of the task force stated, "It is a monumental task, with the number of employees at the building".

An employee who stated he was in the building at the time of the incident, tweeted out his status. “Heard shots and saw people running while at my desk,” one employee, Vadim Lavrusik, wrote on Twitter just before 1 p.m. “Now barricaded inside a room with coworkers.”  https://twitter.com/Lavrusik/status/981259304408788993

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that this is not considered a terrorist action. But it is way too early to confirm this.  The reports are stating that the perpetrator was wearing "a dark top and a head scarf". There is no complete description, nor what kind of weapon(s) used.

Some observers of the opinion that this incident seems to have been predictable.  It could be, if one considers the ominous threats of I.S.I.S. and related terrorist groups.   A posting distributed in English, Arabic and French by the Ashhad Media Foundation shows a hooded figure in front of a laptop computer branded with the ISIS insignia and icons of social media sites in the background, including Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram and YouTube. They also included the employment networking site LinkedIn.  https://pjmedia.com/homeland-security/isis-puts-call-online-jihadists-fulfill-call-social-media/

This writer is a former Youtube content-creator and I am digging for answers, wondering What would cause such a violent disruption at an otherwise peaceful location?   After all, Youtube headquarters is a gun-free zone and it is known for promoting peace and not hate.  Gossip is abounding on Youtube.com itself.  A vlogger called 'Framers for Truth' broadcast a live stream from his vehicle. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIZdbTS9lMn8InENspJNRzg  He stated that there is speculation from one of his sources that the female shooter entered the premises and "went crazy" due to a love triangle gone wrong. He also stated that the incident was centered around the lunch room of the vast Youtube headquarters.  A further review of the channel shows that, "Farmers for Truth' is a gun advocate, of the opinion that this would not happen if there were second amendment supporters at the scene, to defend against an aggressor.

Vlogging also from a vehicle, Defango stated that he was in the area at the time.  He learned from sources, the violence burst out during a party which was occuring in the building. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPDjx4qeqDCJYvFJP_Ynbhg

Channel 'American Gun Chic' has posted her statement of sorrow if anybody was injured in such an incident.  Obvious from her channel name, this youtuber is also a gun advocate.  She stated, "But if anything did happen to anyone, then I feel for you, I'm praying for everybody and I just wsh they would have a gun to protect themselves". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sovtH-BrFeA

Beyond the free press offerings of alternative media, the main video being watched in these initial hours is produced by CBS news. This is intentionally being featured by Youtube itself and was streamed around 3 PM Tuesday and view count 52K views within 2 hours.  It contains the footage of the press conference by San Bruno Police Chief.  Of note is that public comments were not allowed (chat and video comments disabled) on that video watch page.

With all the suspicion swiring aroung these days, there is already doubt about this event.  It is being called a "psyop" by some.  This means that many people are of the opinion that it is staged.  We do not know for certain, in this era of 'fake news'.  I think it's a fair question, to continue our discussions, in a free society, a real civilization.

Disaster Relief Houston, local musician is offered help from Vanessa Carlton

Calculations of the disaster in Houston due to Hurricane Harvey are overwhelming. Something to the tune of $160 billion, reported by the N.Y. Daily News, making it the “costliest natural disaster in U.S. history”. This estimated financial amount is nothing compared to the incalculable human loss of life, along with the emotional suffering. For those of us not in the Gulf region of Texas, or not having been through major catastrophes, we try to imagine what it must be like to endure this and to try to recover from such an experience.
To put it into perspective, with a window into the reality, one example of so many is the story of Aric Harding, who has been resident there with his family. He posted a video (on his Instagram account), which went viral due to the way it touches a nerve in viewers. The video depicts Mr. Harding softly playing his Yamaha piano, while halfway submerged in the floodwaters that have swelled into his home. He had managed to return to the house in order to retrieve some favorite stuffed animals for his children. It’s a wonder that the piano could still play – very surreal! Along with this potent and touching imagery, he lamented “I think it’s finally sinking in a little. What we used to have going as a city is gone. I really think God is going to do something new here”.
Vanessa Carlton had been promoting relief activities for the flood-ravaged region when she came across the Harding video (apparently through a cnn report). Obviously, moved by the eerie scene, as a piano player herself, she took to her twitter and facebook. She shared, “we need to get him a piano”. The Telegraph wrote up a brief article today that “Vanessa Carlton offers to buy new piano for Houston flood family”.
In case you didn’t know, Vanessa Carlton is in a current music tour opening for Stevie Nicks. Carlton’s most recent album release is Liberman. You may remember her going all the way back to her debut album in 2002, Be Not Nobody. The Billboard topping hit from that debut was “A Thousand Miles”.
Is it any surprise that people are reaching out to help those who are suffering? I think that this story symbolizes that human connection. Whatever it is that makes you relate to it, you can do something compassionate. I think that’s what inspired Vanessa Carlton to get involved. She was moved to emotional empathy by seeing the horrific affects of the disaster, as we all should be, if we are feeling in our hearts. For her, especially in the case of the beloved piano and a fellow musician, she could totally relate.
