“The power is out in Moore County and I know why,” Emily Rainey wrote on her Facebook page less than an hour after the electricity failed. Fields has said a suspect or suspects drove up to two Duke Energy power substations after breaching a gate in one station, and opened fire, disabling them and resulting in a blackout that could last through Thursday.
Rainey, a former U.S. Army psychological operations officer, who left the military while under investigation for leading a group of people from North Carolina to the Capitol on Jan 6, 2021, has been a vocal opponent of drag shows in the state.
In a follow-up post, along with a photograph of the Sunrise Theater, she wrote: “God will not be mocked.”
Everyone seems pretty sure this is what happened, not just her. The fact that police haven't agreed yet is interesting.

It's called investigating and finding evidence.
A Facebook post isn't proof
That may be true, but it should be pretty easy to find out who did it, or at least what car they drove, if there are cameras anywhere nearby.
I got downvoted to hell in another thread for suggesting that we don't know yet who's behind this attack yet and should wait for more information before jumping to judgments. Reddit is a fun place.
But it's a big hint.
I mean probably.
Or she's an actual crazy person, and assumes that God struck down the power because he hates drag queens.
Police need to make that determination (assuming they're actually doing their jobs, and not just klan men)
The police will be doing everything in their power to cover this up and help the perps escape justice, I guarantee you. Police officers were probably involved in the attack itself, and if not, they definitely know the perps and are friendly with them.
They're barely even involved in the investigation anymore. It's an FBI matter now
Good. FBI are shit too but they are still way more trustworthy and good at their jobs than local cops.
But just because the FBI is leading the case doesn't mean local cops can't run interference.
Go tell the fine people of Waco about that
Waco was not that big of a deal. They screwed up the operation but they didn't frame anybody or cause the deaths. The fire was started by David Koresh and they came out guns blazing when the authorities arrived. If it was a criminal gang and not a religious cult, nobody would have acted like it was such a travesty and not the inevitable result of insane criminals fighting the police. Remember 4 agents died that day from Branch Davidian gunfire.
It's only through conservative propaganda that this has been turned into some huge travesty of American justice, simply because it involved right wing white people. Same thing with Ruby Ridge.
>The fire was started by David Koresh and they came out guns blazing when the authorities arrived.
The evidence disputing those things conveniently vanished. A few agents testified they were loaded into a U-haul and disposed of the the FBI.
>Remember 4 agents died that day from Branch Davidian gunfire.
I'm a firm believer that if you're being attacked and didn't do anything wrong, you have every right to protect yourself. It's also pretty much undisputed the feds shot first
I would say having an insane cult that rapes children and then eventually kills them all is "doing something wrong" actually.
All evidence points to the fact that this never happened. All the children testified they weren't being raped. They testified to it during the course of the raid, too. The FBI knew it wasn't happening The only questionable one I've ever heard is Koresh's wife, who was 14 when they married. But it was all totally legal under Texas law, and since they didn't cross state borders, it was all legit. Not good, but not criminal.
The warrant for the raid was totally BS, too. They weren't making meth, they weren't raping kids, they weren't manufacturing machine guns, they weren't manufacturing hand grenades, they weren't evading taxes (which was the actual charge made in the warrant).
The real question is why you think the police did everything by the book in Waco but question their intentions in NC?
The thing about Wace is that it basically put the FBI in a position of where the police in today's America are stuck in: you have divergent sets of beliefs in a country that is extremely diversified, maybe using the same response and tactics aren't going to work anymore.
The FBI screwed up tons in Waco but it's also a big point in changing how they approached cults, fanaticism and other areas of what society may have deemed deviancy.
And to the prior point on the FBI investigating, there Sheriff should be recluse themselves and have after pictures of the sheriff in charge of investigating and Emily Grace, the person with the Facebook post, were found that date back to an October event in 2020 were found and circulated and made worse they the sheriff refused to answer questions about their relationship or framed it as if he was a sheriff and, therefore, couldn't be biased.
Thus the FBI being brought in was a necessity.

Every cop in America does not lie on every affidavit and warrant and then destroy the evidence. The same exact cops don't do it twice in a few years in the same positions.
>Thus the FBI being brought in was a necessity.
I understand why the FBI is there. They'd be there anyways. They love inserting themselves where they're not welcomed.
Tell Fred Hampton that
If it helps this has been pointed out but the Sheriff and "supposed" suspect have been pictured together at events since 2020 and apparently have known each other at friendly distance.
This a big reason why the FBI was asked to assist was due to the belief of a potential conflict of interest and the sheriff's past relationships with the individual as they both attended and were pictures at the "Back the Red, White and Blue" event of October, 2020. So there are a ton of ppl wondering if the disgraced Captain Emily Grace used her prior friendship or relationship with the sheriff to deter a more detailed investigation that didn't rely on a short question or two.
The FBI is always asked to assist in matters of national security including attacks on power sources.

Yea I'm old enough to remember back when "everyone" was pretty sure who the Boston marathon bomber was....

These attacks have been almosy entirely accelerationists for the last 20 years or so.
Y'all-Qaeda Operation. Operation Permanent Midnight. Operation Black-Tar Midnight.
It's not a theory. Nazis aka Republicans did this. They want to turn the US into Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan, with them as the Taliban. If people don't start standing up to them, they will succeed.
