The Largest Mass Shooting in American History

It wasn't Orlando, actually.
THE LARGEST MASS SHOOTING IN US HISTORY HAPPENED December 29,1890. When 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota were murdered by federal agents & members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms.
It was a little less cold blooded than the post makes it sound, but quite brutal all the same. The gunfight broke out when one Lakota man refused to turn in his arms. Twenty-five soldiers were killed in the battle that erupted when they opened fire into the crowd, as not all of the Lakota had yet handed in their guns. At the time it was something the government approved of so much that it awarded twenty Medals of Honor to participants.

They should have just exiled that one Lakota, and confiscated the arms from the rest.

Opening fire into a general space like that, reminds me of when police officers are drilled to open fire at random just because their fellow officers have begun to fire.

While that may be nice in a firing line, in a battle. It is less useful when people are just firing potshots at random.

The Japanese have similar conflicts over how to record WWII Japan. If they told the absolute truth, it would tarnish their own national image due to the sheer stupidity displayed by military leaders. If they only told half the truth, it would be seen as propaganda or a hostile act, by other nations like China or the US.

Like the US Army, it was a lot easier just to side step the issue.

One of the likely events when the gov. calls for a mandatory turn in of arms, is that someone is going to open fire in/on the line and on the confiscating authorities. It will, of course, result in their death, but the echo's are going to really reduce peoples enthusiasm for standing in a confiscation line.

Sipsey Street blog and the 3 percenters have been working, in a sort of Alt Right loose coalition way, to connect with police officers and their community/families, bypassing the hierarchy of the unions and the authorities.

That way, the ROE is given to the police officers who will be the ones deciding which orders they will obey.

This will better prepare the enforcers when they hear "there's some domestic right wing terrorists on the List by the SPLC, verified by the FBI (Muslim Brotherhood), and signed by the Presidential execution orders (executive orders and Valerie's Iran puppet strings) that we need to "take care of" ".

To some guy out of the police academy for a few weeks, months, etc, they don't know what's going on. They just get an order to raid this place for illegal drugs or arms. The individual autonomy of police partners are very low. They don't have independent intel assets they can order to gather info. They have to go out and get it themselves, if they want it. Or trust dispatch to have the goods (they won't, it'll be disinformation fed straight to them by Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated FBI and top level agencies).

I think for the National park rangers, it may have even worked. Many just up and quit, before they got the orders to suppress veterans in the gov shut down.

For New Orleans, many officers were said to have gone "AWOL". At the time, that seemed pretty extreme and bad. But after the gun confiscations came about, and the news that even National Guard units were roped into it, maybe the officers that went AWOL... were the wise ones. This was in Louisiana, of course, so the State police and culture would produce some solid patriots. But under Hussein Regime, surely even the urban police union cops would have been notified by now. They must have google and facebook by now, somebody has to have told them what is really going on.
