More Orlando gay-club shooting actors: 2 eyewitnesses and a medical examiner

The Orlando Pulse-gay-nightclub shooting of June 12, 2016 isn’t just the worst or deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, it also has the distinction of having an astonishing number of people with known acting or camera experience.

To begin, there is the shooter himself, Omar Mateen, who had two acting credits according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb). A day after I took the screenshot below, IMDb saw fit to delete one of them — Mateen’s appearance in the documentary, The Big Fix. (See “Orlando gay-club shooter is also an actor!“)

Then there is eyewitness Luis Burbano who claims to be in Pulse at the time of the shooting and admitted that he was the man who had held an exit door closed, ostensibly to keep the armed gunman from escaping, which makes no sense. What Burbano actually achieved was to prevent survivors from leaving the club.

On IMDb, Burbano is identified to have five acting credits. A day after I had taken a screenshot of his acting credits (see below), IMDb also scrubbed one of the credits — Burbano’s portrayal of a “club patron” in the 2015 music video “Spirit of Orlando: Shooting Up”.

Luis BurbanoThis post is about three other Orlando-shooting individuals with acting or on-camera experiences:

  1. Eyewitness Christopher Hansen (Andrew Bowser)
  2. Chief medical examiner Dr. Joshua Stephany
  3. TV intern reporter Patience Carter

1. Christopher Hansen/Andrew Bowser

Christopher Hansen is the bearded man in a hat and an American-flag t-shirt who was interviewed by various media outlets as an eyewitness. He can also be seen in video carrying a shooting victim strangely toward, instead of away from, the Pulse nightclub crime scene.

Christopher Hansen carrying victim toward PulseDaily Telegraph identifies Hansen as a “Pulse patron” who was in the VIP lounge when the shooting broke out and who managed to escape the club unharmed. Expressing disbelief at the situation, Hansen said, “I was thinking, ‘Are you kidding me?’ So I just dropped down. I just said, ‘Please, please, please, I want to make it out.’ And when I did, I saw people shot. I saw blood.”

Below is Christopher Hansen being interviewed on ABC’s GMA (Good Morning America). Footage of him carrying a victim toward Pulse begins at the 1:02 mark.

But Christopher Hansen looks very much like a professional actor named Andrew Bowser who claims to have developed a “cult following” portraying “quirky characters” inserted into real-life news events, such as pretending to be a weird Arby employee in this news video:

And as a Satanist at the erecting of a Baphomet statue 11 months ago in Detroit, Michigan (See “Detroit goes to the devil”):

Andrew Bowser’s IMDb (Internet Movie Database) profile describes him as “An up and coming Director/Actor, famous for his quirky characters and viral YouTube videos,” whose characters are “wonderfully deceiving”.  Bowser’s “Filmography” has 10 acting credits, 7 director credits, 3 writer credits, 4 producer credits, 1 cinematopher credit, 1 sound department credit, and 1 archive footage credit.

Below is a side-by-side comparison of Christopher Hansen and satanist Andrew Bowser — both are bearded, have similar eyebrows and noses, and have a fondness for hats.

Christopher Hansen; Andrew Bowser of Concordia ab chao blog points out that Bowser may not even be Andrew Bowser’s real name, but rather the name of the reptilian turtle villain from Super Mario games (below).

Dr. Joshua StephanyJoshua Stephany is the chief medical examiner in charge of the Orlando shooting.

He also has a page on IMDb, with one acting credit as “himself,” a forensic pathologist, in 6 episodes of the 2005-2008 TV series Dr. G: Medical Examiner. Here’s a screenshot I took at 3:36 PM on June 18, 2016 of Stephany’s profile on IMDb :

Joshua Stephany on IMDbAs reported by Frank Torres for The Orlando Political Observer on June 16, 2016, four days after the Pulse nightclub shooting, Dr. Stephany was only just confirmed for a 3-year term as Orange County Chief Medical Examiner. Prior to his appointment, Stephany had been Interim Chief Medical Examiner after the retirement of Dr. Jan Garavaglia in May 2015. “Dr. G Medical Examiner” was known nationwide for her television show on the Learning Child and testimony in the Casey Anthony Trial.

3. Patience Carter

Patience CarterThen there is Patience Carter, 20, who also claims to be an eyewitness and survivor of the Pulse gay-club shooting massacre. Here she is in a 25+minutes appearance relating her harrowing experience, beginning with an emotional recitation of a poem she wrote.

It turns out Carter also has camera/acting experience, having been an intern at Fox29 TV in Philadelphia.

It is astonishing how many actors were involved in the Orlando shooting! The probability of that occurring by random chance stretches one’s credulity.

G4S security contractor that employed Orlando shooter is a client of crisis actor company

It was the 2012 Sandy Hook hoax that first alerted Americans to a curious phenomenon called crisis actors — actors who role-play as victims, perpetrators, and first responders in simulations and drills of crisis situations such as natural or manmade disasters, including school and other mass shootings. There are even ! See:

At the time of Sandy Hook, there was a government-created crisis actor provider in Colorado called Visionbox, which described itself as “a project of the Colorado Nonprofit Development Center” and “of the Colorado Safety Task Force established by Colorado State Senator Steve King.”

In a “Feature Story” that had since been deleted from the web, Visionbox described what its crisis actors do:

Active Shooter Crisis Actors Target Mall Shootings via Visionbox

DENVER, CO, October 31, 2012 — A new group of actors is now available nationwide for active shooter drills and mall shooting full-scale exercises, announced Visionbox, Denver’s leading professional actors studio.

Visionbox Crisis Actors are trained in criminal and victim behavior, and bring intense realism to simulated mass casualty incidents in public places.

The actors’ stage acting experience, ranging from Shakespeare to contemporary American theater, enables them to “stay in character” throughout an exercise, and improvise scenes of extreme stress while strictly following official exercise scenarios. […]

Visionbox Crisis Actors can also play the role of citizens calling 911 or mall management, or posting comments on social media websites.

For more on Visionbox, see my post of January 1, 2013, “Professional crisis actors simulate mass casualty events”. and Memory Hole Blog‘s “Where Have All the Crisis Actors Gone?“.

We now know that at least three individuals involved in the Orlando gay club shooting on June 12, 2016, have professional acting credits. They are:

  1. Alleged lone shooter Omar Mateen, who was a full-time employee of G4S, an inept federal government security contractor, had two acting credits.
  2. Alleged eyewitness Luis Burbano, had five acting credits.
  3. Alleged eyewitness Christopher Hanson who may be professional actor Andrew Bowser (more on this in a later post).

Now we can tie an outfit that supplies crisis actors to the shooting.

Crisis CastIt is CrisisCast, a British provider of, in its words, “Award winning role play actors and film makers specially trained in disaster and crisis management.”

This is how CrisisCast describes itself:

We dramatise events for emerging security needs in the UK, Middle East and worldwide. Our specialist role play actors – many with security clearance – are trained by behavioural psychologists and rigorously rehearsed in criminal and victim behaviour to help police, the army and the emergency services, hospitals, schools, local authorities, government, private security firms, shopping centres, airports, big business, criminal justice departments, media and the military to simulate incident environments for life saving procedures.

We use state of the art British film industry techniques, props and special effects to help trainers deliver essential, hands-on, high octane crisis response and disaster management training. We also work with trainee doctors, psychologists and care professionals.

CrisisCast boasts that “We act for a wide range of clients, from private individuals to multi-national organisations, and everything in between,” and assures its clients and potential clients that since “Some of the work we do is sensitive,” clients can depend on secrecy as “We believe in loyalty and we understand the need for confidentiality.”

CrisisCast then provides a partial list of its illustrious clients: “Here are a few of the clients we have been privileged to work with recently”.

No. 10 on that list of 20 CrisisCast clients is G4S, the security company that had employed Omar Mateen from September 2007 until his death, presumably by police, at Pulse nighclub in Orlando, FL, on the morning of June 12, 2016.

G4S Security Solutions USA claims to be the world’s leading security contractor with operations in more than 100 countries and very lucrative contracts with the U.S. federal government, including DHS. (See “Orlando terrorist-killer Omar Mateen worked for a security firm with DHS contract to identify suspected terrorists“)

Below is a screenshot I took of CrisisCast’s client webpage. Please note the time and date in the lower right corner (5:54 AM, June 18, 2016) when I took the screenshot, in case CrisisCast scrubs G4S from its client list. I painted the red arrows pointing to G4S and the time & date.
