You’d never know it, but there have been a number of troubling stories coming out of the B Plains. These stories, of course, have been buried by every news outlet because neither the media nor the public cares about anything that doesn’t happen on the coasts.
Still, these stories are worth heeding, if only for their shock value.
Last week, a tour group on their way back from the plains spotted four large white trucks heading to the village they just left. Out of curiosity, they turned back. They got as far as they could before they were stopped by blockades that had been set up in the road. One of the tour guides climbed on top of their jeep and, using some high-powered binoculars, she was able to see bits and pieces of what she called “a horrifying scene” in which children were forcibly taken from their families.
We are told that the children brought to the arenas in our cities are orphans. Given stories like the one included above, that is clearly not the case. So, you have to wonder, who could possibly be behind these kidnapping excursions? Following the money trail would likely provide some compelling answers. Provided you could find a money trail—which doesn’t seem likely. Without that piece of the puzzle, there’s only one question left to ask: who would benefit most from this possibly illegal upsurge in the B trade? Here’s a hint—if you live in Charlotte, you probably won’t have to look very far.
