Minneapolis Shooter:Gang Stalked, Workplace Mobbed & 5150 listed?
Again, there is another seemingly "everyday massacre" in the American heartland, and, the same questions are being routinely and systematically ignored by the MSM.
Last week, Andrew J. Engeldinger, 36, walked into his workplace in Minneapolis and shot 6 dead, including himself, seriously injuring several others. We have another MSM "phoned-in script" of a loner with a psychiatric history going postal, and, adding to an exponentially increasing problem of mass shootings in this country. A short history review will show that in the last decade this country has had more workplace and school mass shootings than in the entire century that preceded this past decade. Since neither mental illness nor gun ownership are new to this country, we must ask, are we missing some other hidden variable here?
Engeldinger bought a home in the Powderhorn suburb of Minneapolis in 2003. This is a lower middle class area with an average income of about $35,000, and, average home price of about $205,000.
Although Engeldinger was "known to police" from initial reports, he had no arrest record. In fact, the Minneapolis Police Department states that there were only three police reports related to Engeldinger between 2005 and 2011 in which Engeldinger was listed as the victim (damage to motor vehicle, auto theft and theft from auto).
Reports show Engeldinger called police three times to say someone messed with his car at Accent Signage. In one case, he said someone kicked a door. In another, he told police someone tried to steal his car and left behind screwdrivers. In the third, he said a cell phone and clothes were stolen even though his car was still locked.
The third police report is unique to gang stalking/workplace mobbing victims. The psychological technique of conspicuous entry without any signs of forced entry is a signature crime, unique to gang stalking and workplace mobbing. It is a psychological attack well known to victims of mobbing and gang stalking, as well as those who study the phenomenon.
Engeldinger had made repeated claims to his family that he was being "followed".
When we add his allegations of being followed to the fact that he was subjected to at least three property crimes over six years that were reported to police, we can conclude that Engeldinger may well have been targeted by gang stalking.
Gang stalking is a government run Program with ties to the Psychiatric community. Victims are routinely subjected to involuntary and unlawful committment to mental institutions by shadowy "Threat Assessment Teams". Recently, Jane Clift of the U.K. prevailed in a case she brought against U.K.'s NHS for being placed on a threat assessment list.
Engeldinger was subjected to involuntary commitment:
Neighbors said Thursday a single man lived in the house. Last week, they said, a man was arrested on the home's lawn. He was put in a squad car and kicked the window out, neighbors said.
This scene, reported in the Denver Post, seems to show that Engeldinger, who frequently worked on his lawn, was in fact subjected to 5150 calls from emergency services.
Engeldinger evidently had the hallmark encounter with emergency services and the psychiatric community just a week before "going postal". His late stage schizophrenia diagnosis at 36 (an unusually late age to be initially diagnosed as schizophrenic), combined with workplace mobbing, and, a prompt termination in the job he had held for most of his adult life, culminated in the massacre.
The VA Tech shooter had also been subject to mobbing at VA Tech, and, was involuntarily hospitalized shortly before his massacre:
Joe Newbury had been arrested and interrogated by police and social services when, as a student at VA Tech, his fictional writings were deemed "too violent". Newbury was flagged by his own creative writing professor. His situation at Va Tech, in some ways worse than Cho's, preceded Cho's studies at VA Tech, and, Newbury believes the involvement by police officials in his own case was the reason that VA Tech did not instigate Cho's arrest. In a classic bureaucratic failure, Va Tech made a full court press with Newbury, and under-reacted to Cho. The payoff for the bureaucratic snafu was the largest school massacre in the violent history of American school massacres. Thankfully, Newbury documented the entire keystone cops misadventure on a blog he maintains:
The fact that there was police involvement, and, that police are denying contact with Engeldinger is troublesome:
Did Engeldinger have prior contact with MPD? The only prior contacts MPD had with Engeldinger were three property crimes cases between 2005 and 2011 in which Engeldinger was listed as the victim (damage to motor vehicle, auto theft and theft from auto).
More Evidence of Motive for Workplace Mobbing
They found a paystub on Engeldinger's nightstand. On his TV stand, police found a folder with paperwork about a discrimination lawsuit and a letter that Cooks, the Accent Signage supervisor who later fired him, sent Engeldinger about his persistent tardiness.
Employee Melissa Ritzer told police after the shooting that Engeldinger had "ongoing issues with two company executives." She said she believed that "Andy had filed a lawsuit against them and the business."
Any attorney with even a rudimentary knowledge of employment disputes will concur that an employees discrimination claims to authorities, filing of a lawsuit, or, threatening to do either, will, in most cases, initiate workplace mobbing or intensify existing workplace mobbing against the complaining employee.
As with gang stalking, workplace mobbing is conducted through key instigators. In the case of gang stalking these are neighbors, in the case of workplace mobbing, they are co-workers. This would explain why Engeldinger clearly chose to kill some and spare others:
Mobbing is a crime in Scotland, has been extensively studied in Academic circles, and, Dr. Kenneth Westhues has claimed that mobbing had played a role in the VA Tech massacre in a peer-reviewed academic journal article:
Dr. Kenneth Westhues writes:
"Most of the people who go postal, however, in academic as in other workplaces, have been mobbed there in preceding months or years."
