Official Report (so far): Actor and filmmaker, David Crowley (29), suffered from PTSD and killed his wife and 5 year old daughter, then himself in a murder suicide. But The Dakota County Sheriff’s Office stated that the deaths appeared “suspicious”.
Crowley’s ‘Gray State’
Crowley was an activist, a seemingly busy actor (IMDB: ‘Red Rock’, ‘Love, Rosie’, ‘Damo and Ivor’), and a writer/director. He had made a promotional trailer for the movie “Gray State” – a very powerful “highly-anticipated independent film envisioning a brutal police state, martial law crackdown, complete with biometric identification, a ubiquitous surveillance state, and FEMA storm-troopers rounding dissidents up into camps.”
I saw the trailer about nine months ago and was struck by how this powerful story could bring activist ideas to a mainstream audience. If and when this film is completed – and gets on screens – it has the potential of being embraced by huge global audiences. This was/is a ‘dangerous’ project on many levels.
In an interview with Ben Swann, Danny Mason (also one of the creative partners on the film) talks about Crowley as a symbol of hope and inspiration. Friends associated with the project are in shock and disbelief and refer to him as smart, unique, strong willed, and artistically self motivated. Mason also talks about how the media have been spinning David Crowley’s character and PTSD in a negative light. Mason says Crowley was a ‘softie’ around his family – loving and caring, and on the murder-suicide: “It doesn’t fit” and “It doesn’t make sense“.
Ben Swann recalls (at 17:20) that in a pre-interview on Canada Free Press in 2012 – the interview joked with Crowley about suicide (referencing people like Michael Hastings). Crowley allegedly replied that he had no suicidal thoughts.
‘Gray Mind’ or ‘Gray State’?
Is this a case of David Crowley’s mind diving into a dark state – and murdering his wife and daughter he obviously loved? Maybe he thought he was saving them from the future tyrannical government? Or was this the ‘Gray State’ silencing a major activist?
We will keep tracking the investigation.
But there is a bigger question in all this. Is Crowley’s story ‘Gray State’ a fiction or reality unfolding?
A Movie or Reality Unfolding?
Is it the near future, or is it the present? The Gray State is coming – by consent or conquest.
‘Gray State’ – Movie Synopsis
The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.
Americans, quarantined to militarized districts, become a population ripe for tyrannical control.
Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance — these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence. Neighbor is turned against neighbor as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Public executions of those even suspected of dissent. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.
This is the backdrop to an unfolding story of resistance. American militias prepare for guerilla warfare. There are mass defections from the military as true Patriots attempt to rally around the Constitution and defend liberty, preparing a national insurgency against federal forces, knowing full well this will be the last time in history the oppressed will be capable of organized resistance.
It is a time of transition, of shifting alliance, of mass awakening and mass execution. It is an impending storm, an iron-gray morning that puts into effect decades of over-comfort and complacency, and Americans wake up to an occupied homeland. It is a time of lists — black list, white list, and those still caught in the middle, those who risk physical death for their free will and those who sell their souls to maintain their idle thoughts and easy comforts. It is in this Gray State that the perpetuation of human freedom will be contested, or crushed.
Is it the near future, or is it the present? The Gray State is coming – by consent or conquest. This is battlefield USA.
