The Red Danger Zone of April 2016

We are heading into a time of the year full of peril.
(Above) The man who drove his car into a crowded Dutch royal parade, attempting to assassinate Queen Beatrix Wilhelmina Armgard, on April 30, 2009, had shaved his hair into a Mohawk, like the homicidal anti-hero of the highly political film Taxi Driver (1976).

The explosive American political climate of 2015-2016 has produced wall-to-wall media coverage of the infighting on the Republican and Democratic fronts. Due to the almost nonstop attention to the conflicts between the candidates, have you noticed the mainstream news channels (e.g. CNN, Fox News, MSNBC) have mostly ignored school shootings and workplace violence? Have the lack of coverage actually caused a decline in the incidents? Or are they happening but not being reinforced? Certainly, the terrorist incidents in San Bernardino, Paris and Brussels resulted in a few days of reportage, but then the media returned to politics.

Watch for that to change during the last two weeks of April 2016.

Predictive programming consciousness, copycat effect studies, twilight language analysis, and just plain common sense should tell even the most unaware investigators and reporters that the month of April is perilous. The fourth month of the year, the second month of spring in the northern hemisphere, has become a minefield of anniversaries and remembrances of things which have gone tragically wrong. Homicidal, suicidal, vulnerable, and impulsive violent individuals will react strongly to this upcoming "red zone" of anniversaries. Expect the worst, hope for the best. The pressure has been building.

The dates may be remarkably covert in the unfolding of the incidents, but they are there as the stimuli for more events.

Take for example, what occurred this week, on Wednesday, April 6, 2016. At the middle school in Newtown, Connecticut, a middle school teacher, Jason M. Adams, 46, was detained because he brought a concealed firearm to school. Adams, 46, was released without posting bond and was scheduled to appear in Danbury Superior Court on the 2nd week anniversary of his "weapon's oversight," on April 20, 2016.

Of all the school systems in the country, the Newtown/Sandy Hook group may be one of the most sensitive about such "mistakes." On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza, 20, entered Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, killing 20 first-grade students, six adults, and himself.

Adam Peter Lanza, briefly a student at Sandy Hook Elementary, was born on April 22, 1992, in Kingston, New Hampshire. April 22nd is a hidden anniversary even within the Newtown-Sandy Hook story.

This year, 2016, the Boston Marathon will be run on Monday, April 18, 2016, which is Patriots' Day in Massachusetts, Patriot's Day in Maine, and a school vacation day in Wisconsin.

For 2016, April 18th begins the intensive "Red Danger Zone" on the April calendar that I have warned about for several years. The violence has begun to spread to nearby dates.

Let me walk you through some of the events tied to these dates.

April 14-5

1865 – On the eve of the fifth day of Passover, April 14, 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was shot and died of his wounds in the early morning of April 15th, which had already been scheduled as a national day of prayer to mark the end of the Civil War. Jews across the land were gathering in synagogues to give thanks. When news of Lincoln's death arrived, the synagogue altars were quickly draped in black and, instead of Passover melodies, the congregations chanted Yom Kippur hymns. Lincoln had been protective of American Jewry, overturning General Grant's infamous General Order #11 expelling Jews from the Department of the Tennessee and supporting legislation allowing Jewish chaplains to serve in the military.

April 15

2013 – The Boston Marathon bombing was a terrorist attack, followed by subsequent related shootings, that occurred when two pressure cooker bombs exploded during the Boston Marathon on Boylston Street, Boston, Massachusetts. Six died in the events, and 280 injured, some with loss of legs and arms.

One of the Waldos notes, "We did discover we could talk about getting high in front of our parents without them knowing by using the phrase 420." By extension now, April 20 ("4/20" in U.S. dating shorthand) has evolved into a counterculture holiday, where people gather to celebrate and consume cannabis.

Bridget Brown of Toronto's Canadian TV online edition wrote the following on October 4, 2006:
Coleman says violent offenders, intent on shocking the public, sometimes "compete for the highest body count."...the copycat crimes will likely slow down as we near winter. He says spring, and the anniversary of Columbine, could be enough to spark another cycle of tragedy.
Here's a snippet from Montana's Daily Inter Lake, for October 5, 2006:
There is also the influence of cable news to be accounted for, as wall-to-wall coverage of shootings and murder could easily sway sick minds to think of killers as culture heroes. Indeed, researcher Loren Coleman believes copycats imitate previous violent attacks on a regular basis. He says school attacks follow a pattern after a media event in a day, a week, two weeks, a month, a year, or 10 years. "Vulnerable humans have internal media clocks," he maintains.
"Killers often pick special dates for their attack," April 17, 2009 by Trish Crawford, in Toronto Star
...Loren Coleman is worried, because mass killers often choose special dates and anniversaries for their carnage. The killers at Columbine did, by picking the birthday of one of history's monsters.
The author of The Copycat Effect (Simon & Schuster) says the amount of attention this anniversary gets may determine whether any other disaffected males bent on vengeance pick April 20 for their act of destruction.
"Anniversaries can be dangerous," Coleman says. "These individuals compete with each other."
...Coleman called schools "a fish bowl setting with a vulnerable population."
...The killers are uniformly "homicidal, suicidal, sexually dysfunctional males" who feel powerless and blame others for their problems. Attacking school students – young girls are favored targets – makes these people feel powerful and strong, Coleman says.
Michael Hoffman III, being interviewed for "Cereal Murder and the Group Mind" in 2000, notes:
There is an occult nose-thumbing at the bottom of many of these twilight language cereal murders, such as Jack the Ripper - poking fun at the investigators and the public because so many don't get the black comedy at the heart of it. It's a feeling of superiority magnified exponentially.

I always remember April 19, 1998 when in Madison WI, a passenger on a city bus dowsed other passengers with gasoline and lit them on fire.

I was out of town that weekend at a trivia contest in Steven's Point and only heard the news coming back Monday morning.

The man's name was Salim Amara and he was found not guilty because of mental illness. But the really weird thing is nobody ever talks about it here. We have memorials for Elvis and Otis Redding but nobody talks about this even in Madison.

After 9/11, I wondered if this was a terrorist trial run. Maybe it really was and that is why nobody talks about it. Here is a link that gives some of the details:

April is the cruellest month, breeding

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain.

April 15, 1912 the Titanic sunk. Talk about black comedy! Imagine - the cereal killer can be in the fields, the grocery stores or at the breakfast table, with or without milk.

2016-04-19 - Woke up and checked the news and the first story I saw:

Dozens killed in Kabul as Taliban attack (CNN headline)

The last headline I saw had the death toll as high as 30.

Later in the day:

Nation's largest health insurer to exit majority of Obamacare exchanges... (Drudge headline)

It's just past noon in the central states. The New York primary is also going on today so that might take some of the oxygen out for other stories.

Three wounded and the shooter is dead in a story out of Alabama that looks like it started around 7:00 AM 2016-04-19.

Still short on detail. I've only found it reported by a YouTube channel I am subscribed to (Daboo777) and local media reports.

While the Fort McMurray WILDFIRE is reported as beginning on May 1st, could it have begun on APRIL 30th. Syncing with the Celtic Beltane or Walpurgis Night?
