Wonderful world of fakery?

Be the 1st to vote.

A previous post mentioned native advertising. Could this be such as case? Occult numerology, a vehicle that certainly doesn’t look like it rolled, classic emotional trigger phrases. Notice a seatbelt mention thrown in for good PSA measure.

Disney is probably deep at the heart of psyOp/ production. It’s their company credo. Is it a stretch to think that they would use their skills to help advertise their theme park?

I’ll leave this story at least in the suspicious category.

NEW ORLEANS—Michael and Trudi Hardman had always talked about taking their six children to Disney World, and just a week before Thanksgiving, it seemed their “dream trip” was to be a reality.

But just a little more than three hours after they took to the road Wednesday night, their SUV veered off a highway and rolled over in Louisiana, killing them and three of their kids.

Police believe the couple’s 16-year-old son apparently fell asleep behind the wheel of the SUV en route from Terrell, , to Orlando, Fla.

The driver, who was not identified, was charged with reckless operation of a vehicle following the 11 p.m. crash on Interstate 20 near Calhoun, Louisiana, state police spokesman Michael Reichardt said.

Michael Hardman’s brother, Timothy Hardman, said the driver and two passengers were injured, one critically. The driver and the other injured passenger were treated at the hospital and released Thursday morning, he said.

The teen driver veered left onto the median and then tried to get back onto the highway but overcorrected, causing the 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe to roll over, police said.

Michael and Trudi Hardman were both primary-school teachers from Terrell, Texas. Also killed were sons Dakota Watson, 15, and Adam Hardman, 7; and daughter Kaci Hardman, 4, police said.

None of those killed wore seat belts but the driver did, officials said.

The distance between Terrell and Orlando is about 1,700 km — a 16-hour drive. The family left their home in Terrell about 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. Wednesday, according to Timothy Hardman, meaning the accident occurred early in the journey.

Michael Hardman was a Grade 2 teacher at an elementary school in Terrell, said Terrell Independent School District Superintendent Michael French. He had worked in the district for two years, French said.

Hardman also was a little league baseball coach who coached his sons, one of whom, 12-year-old Aaron Hardman, was in critical condition at a Shreveport hospital, Timothy Hardman said.

“He never turned a kid away,” Timothy Hardman said. “Michael probably had the biggest heart of anybody you ever knew. He just loved kids.

Trudi Hardman was a kindergarten teacher at Wills Point Primary school and had worked for the Wills Point Independent School District for about 10 years, Superintendent Suzanne Blasingame said in an email.

Blasingame said Michael Hardman also had formerly taught at Wills Point Primary.

“Our school and community is grieving for this family,” said Blasingame, who had traveled to Louisiana to be with the family.

Timothy Hardman, 38, of Crandall, Texas, said his brother and Trudi Hardman were married about five years ago and had six children between them. Michael Hardman had three boys from a previous marriage, while Trudi Hardman had two boys from a previous marriage, Timothy Hardman said. The couple had a daughter, Kaci, together, he said.

Timothy Hardman, who travelled to Louisiana after he was notified of the accident, said his brother’s family had scheduled the trip about nine months ago, and had planned to stay at Disney World for a week.

“They’ve always talked about it,” he said. “It was their dream trip. It was an opportunity for them to take all of their kids.”

Police don’t believe the young driver was impaired, but a toxicology sample was taken. The stretch of I-20 where the deadly crash took place is flat and straight and the weather was clear, they said.

“Our heartfelt condolences go out to all of the people affected by this tragic crash,” said Col. Mike Edmonson, the Louisiana State Police superintendent. “

    Fake as they come; six of the eight were ejected [through those closed doors?] and of those six, five died allegedly. Car looks like it could be repaired. The sort of “wreck” you’d climb out of with cuts and bruises. Single police photo distributed to all media centres.

    take home message – wear a seat belt, otherwise you’ll get ejected, somehow, in a rollover.

    The driver wore a seat belt….. “I cannot stress enough the importance of wearing a seatbelt anytime you are in a vehicle”.

    [said Col. Mike Edmonson, Louisiana State Police superintendent, in a statement]

    This is in my area of the country so it interests me. So let me get this straight. Michael Hardman just a few months back needed a new Diabetic Pump and Sensor which he funded on gofundme, www.gofundme.com/7ft72k. Then just months later the family is going to Disney World? My point being if he needed public funding for his Diabetic Pump, where did the funds come from for a whole week for five at Disney World? Are the priorities messed up? If I had donated to help with the pump I would be livid knowing they could fund Disney.

    I looked at the Facebook pages for both Trudi and Michael. What I am not seeing on either page is people who actually knew them. I saw people that allegedly knew someone related to them posting condolences but not anything from personal friends, family, former students, etc. I stay off of Facebook so maybe my expectations are too high.

    Lots more to say. Maybe more later.
