PART 1 OF 4 - PATSY DRIVER - The Cumbria Shootings - An Independent Investigation into the Cumbria Shootings by Richard D. Hall
In June 2010 West Cumbria suffered one of the worst criminal acts involving firearms in British history. Twelve people were killed and eleven injured at twenty four shooting locations spread over a huge area of countryside. It did not take long for the case to be solved, in fact the mainstream media rushed to Whitehaven the same day and had the entire case all wrapped up before the sun had set. They named the perpetrator as Derrick Bird, a local taxi driver from Rowrah who they said was responsible for the entire massacre. It didn't take them long to then explain his motives, and it seemed there were many. Some aspects of this case immediately suggested to me there was more to these shootings than had been discovered. In December 2013 I started my own independent investigation, and I have now spoken to dozens of first hand witnesses. The film follows my search for the truth and, demonstrates major anomalies in the evidence which suggests there could be an entirely different motive for what happened that day.

Whilst there are some interesting anomalies (which could be down to mistaken witnesses) there is not enough there for me as regards "mind controlled" patsy.
I'm pretty sure the Steve Bruce lookalike was mistaken, his reasoning is a bit vague.. couldn't have turned to Thornhill because of the "traffic flow". But it was a right turn lane with a give way, I don't see any reason why he couldn't have turned. The witness didn't see either turn right or the alleged later left.
I don't think Richard is sure where to go.. sometimes he looks like he's trying to prove Bird wasn't there at all. Too many people who knew him saw him pulling the trigger for that.
I also think there was just one car, the stuff about the taxi sign on the top.. I think it was a flat decal, some witnesses caught it some didn't. I think it can be seen in (poor) CCTV sometimes where it's said it wasn't in the film.
Anyway... it was an interesting watch and I will be looking at this a bit further to satisfy my curiosity.
Thanks Richard that must have been a lot of hard work.

With other cases like the Boston Marathon bombings and the Lee Rigby murder, there were many oddities which were noticed immediately.
I'll see what I think when I've watched all of it.
