Florida Teen Commits Suicide At Florida Gun Range
By Alex Scott
With so many fabricated stories reported by the mainstream media it is often difficult to decide which ones to write about. However, every now and then a story comes along that is just so blatant in its dishonesty and deception that you almost have to laugh at the absurdity. Still, no matter how obvious, people will continue to be taken in and believe every word.
Because of the constant deluge of fake stories, the average American has become desensitized and can no longer discern between what is real and what is staged to appear as genuine. By writing articles such as this, it is my hope that others might learn to see through the deceptions and begin to look at such stories with a critical eye. For those that are skeptical and find it hard to believe that our government and media would intentionally deceive the public, I encourage you to look at the facts and circumstances surrounding the following story. At its conclusion I think you will find the entire narrative ridiculous.
On Thursday June 29, 2017, Broward County Sheriff deputies were dispatched to the 1700 block of South Powerline Road in Deerfield Beach, Florida after receiving a call reference a person shot at a local gun range. Upon arriving at Gun World of South Florida, deputies found 14-year-old Vincent Colonna unconscious and suffering from a gunshot wound. The teen was airlifted to Broward Health Medical Center where he later died from his injuries. After reviewing video surveillance footage of the incident, detectives determined that Vincent had shot himself in an apparent suicide.
Almost immediately this story just didn’t seem to add up. According to media reports, young Vincent had been at the gun range with his father, who was said to have been supervising his son. We were also told that the teen was well-trained and very familiar with firearms. While the young man’s father was never identified or quoted by local reporters, his mother, Joana Colonna, and both of the boy’s grandmothers were. In fact, even though neither grandmother was present when the shooting took place, both were interviewed outside the gun range a short time after the shooting had occurred.
Shortly after Vincent Colonna was airlifted from the scene, local news stations began interviewing the two grandmothers. Neither woman explained how they received the information so quickly and were able to get themselves to the gun range in such short order. They did, however, seem to have plenty of information as to exactly what had happened.
Explaining to reporters what had happened to her grandson, Anna Rosen stated, “He was doing his thing – shooting his weapon as he normally did, when all of a sudden he was on the floor.” In another interview with a second local news station, Ms. Rosen gives a nearly identical, word-for-word interview. This is just one more sign that this storyline was scripted and read by the grandmother as written.
Meanwhile, Henrietta Colonna conveyed to the media that she had “begged” her grandson not to go shooting before lamenting and appearing to cry, “He was always so careful.” Like her counterpart, Grandma Colonna also gives an identical performance to a second local station, but added, “How could this have happened? Oh, my god!”
Upon further observation it is quite evident that neither grandmother seemed overly distraught having just discovered the sudden death and apparent suicide of their grandson. While it might have looked like Henrietta was crying over the death of her grandson, she shed no actual tears. Once again we find behavior and reaction that is inconsistent with actual grief. Both women simply appear to be acting out the role of grieving grandmothers.
At one point Ana Rosen stated, “I lost a daughter not long ago and now my grandson that meant the world to me.” Really? Is this how a grieving grandmother typically behaves when they’ve lost a grandchild that meant the world to them? Those are, of course, rhetorical questions. Had their grandson actually died such a sudden and tragic death it is doubtful either woman would have wanted to rush to the scene of the incident and immediately begin talking to reporters. They would have been understandably devastated. Here is the link to the local news report where you can watch the two women and judge for yourself.
The Grieving Mother
If the behavior of both grandmothers seems completely disingenuous then watching Vincent’s mother, Joanna De Colonna, should really leave you scratching your head. Either she is simply reciting a set of memorized lines, or this boy’s mother is an apathetic sociopath with a borderline personality disorder. Personally, I’m leaning toward actor.
If you are a parent, especially a well-adjusted and normal mother, the very thought of suddenly losing your child would be heart-wrenching beyond words. Your very first reaction would be that of disbelief, quickly followed by shock and denial.
As I have stated in previous articles, people who have not been exposed to staged events and/or crisis actors will often make the comment, “Everyone grieves differently.” Once again, this is just not an accurate statement. While there are very rare exceptions, the vast majority of people, especially parents of young children, are positively grief-stricken and inconsolably bereft at the loss of a child.
In obvious contrast, Joanna Colonna appears completely unaffected by her son’s death. Instead, her behavior is more in line with that of a parent whose son did not make it home in time for dinner, or perhaps did not complete his list of chores in a timely manner.
On the very same day after being told that her 14-year-old son took his own life, Joanna Colonna appears calm and composed when talking to reporters. Not only do we observe a complete lack of tears, but Ms. Colonna does not even bother to pretend as though she has been crying. It’s literally unbelievable. Contradicting the initial police finding of suicide, the boy’s mother responded by telling reporters, “Everything was in order.” What is that suppose to mean? That’s a pretty odd comment to make.
With her complete lack of concern I’m surprised Joanna Colonna did not just come out and say that her son lost his life because he was simply exercising his second amendment rights!
Below are links to interviews from two different local Florida news stations.
There is not a lot of detail to this story compared to most others I typically write. It is , however, an excellent example of just how phony a contrived story can be. As always we ask ourselves, “Why would they stage a story like this?” What better way to keep children from an evil firearms store and gun range than to fake the death of a child at such an establishment. Because of this, don’t be surprised if/when we see our state legislatures enacting laws raising the age limit to enter a gun store and/or firing range.
