Staged accidents: noble lies for training

Teen killed by GO Train had passion for riding scooters - Toronto Star 2014-07-23 05-32-35I am still convinced that many collisions, whether they be trains, planes, or automobiles, are for staged for EMS training. They are then portrayed as real events, and used as PSAs (public service announcements). (We know events are staged for insurance fraud all the time, be they big, like the WTC, or car collisions)

Here’s an odd picture, and an odd backstory. Are there really professional scooter riders? The photoslop looks like they found a hand of a burly carpenter. The head is too small for the body. I’ve heard of being awkward as a teenager…

Punkris said that Bailey was planning to pursue opportunities in professional scooter riding, and a career in carpentry. He was entering his last year of high school.

I think they grabbed Mike Holmes‘ hand.

Even the comments are weak reinforcements of a fake event:

    Not sure how to take a screenshot so here’s the story before it changes details- “A plane crashed while attempting to land in stormy weather at a small airport in Taiwan on Wednesday, killing at least 47 people, officials there say.
    TransAsia Airways flight GE222, which originated from the southern port city of Kaohsiung, was carrying 54 passengers and four flight crew when it crashed during a second landing attempt on the typhoon-battered island of Penghu, officials said.
    There were conflicting reports about the number of fatalities.
    Taiwan’s Transport Minister Yeh Kuang-shih told the government’s Central News Agency that 47 people were “trapped and feared dead,” and 11 others were injured in the crash. Earlier, a fire official said that 51 people had been killed and seven had been injured. Reuters reported 47 people were killed in the crash, citing China’s Xinhua news agency.
    The plane, a 72-seat twin-engine turboprop ATR 72, was en route to Magong when it attempted the emergency landing, Taiwan’s Civil Aeronautics Administration told the AP.
    Typhoon Matmo hit Taiwan on Wednesday, bringing heavy rains and strong winds to the region.
    “It was thunderstorm conditions during the crash,” Hsi Wen-guang, a spokesman for the Penghu County Government Fire Bureau, told Reuters. “A few empty apartment buildings adjacent to the runway caught fire, but no one was inside at the time and the fire was extinguished.”
    Video taken in the aftermath of the crash shows rescue workers with flashlights sifting through the plane’s wreckage in what appears to be a residential area.
    Other photos broadcast on local television appear to show that the plane plowed into homes near the airport.

    Another image shows what appears to be a fire near the site.

    In a statement, President Ma Ying-jeou called it “a very sad day in the history of Taiwanese aviation.”
    Prior to Wednesday’s crash, TransAsia had 8 reported incidents since 2002, including 6 involving the ATR 72. Meanwhile, the manufacturer of the turboprop aircraft said it was in the process of confirming details of the accident.”
