    Angry Anyone remember Doug Copp?

    As I sit here watching MSNBC about the mudslide in California, the show starts talking to Mr.Copp. Anyone that has seen the threads in the past knows the story. One part of the interview dealt with him telling the show how he helped search Ground Zero, and how he has saved people all over the world with his "rescue" organization. I thought this guy was basically exposed as a fraud? How is he still giving interviews?

    Some "Ground Zero" observations of this imposter......

    JOHN NORMAN: Chief of special operations for the New York Fire Department.
    Norman was in charge of the World Trade Center rescue and recovery operation, and he called Doug Copp's claim to have cleared the cavities underneath the twin towers "a fraud."
    He said Copp was at the site with no authority and bristles at Copp's boast that he searched areas FDNY was afraid to enter.
    "We had people going places and doing things that I never would have permitted in any other circumstance because we had over 300 of our brothers among the thousands missing," Norman said.
    CHASE SARGENT: A Virginia Beach, Va., fire battalion chief and member of a FEMA task force.
    Sargent was one of the night operations chiefs at the World Trade Center. He said he found Copp on the site without credentials and had him escorted off.
    Sargent said he knew Copp by reputation— as someone who shows up at rescue sites without authorization, takes video and gets on TV.
    "Anybody who's legitimate in this business knows who this knucklehead is," Sargent said.
    STEPHEN LENTZ: Archaeologist for the state of New Mexico.
    Lentz had met Copp weeks earlier and had decided he would write a book about Copp's adventures. Copp persuaded him that writing a screenplay for a movie about him would be a better idea.
    After another team member declined to take the camera underground, Lentz became the photographer and spent the next few days with Copp.
    Lentz wrote an affidavit in support of Copp's claim to the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, but now says he "pumped up" Copp's role because he felt sorry for him.
    "I would never sign an affidavit saying he was the hero of 9/11," Lentz said. "I think basically he was a fraud and a bombast."
    RON HADANI: A New Jersey man who went to New York in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 looking to lend a hand. Copp gave the Journal Hadani's name and said he could vouch for Copp's work in New York. Hadani said he ran into Copp at the Jacob Javits Center and Copp took him to ground zero.
    "The whole thing was kind of weird," Hadani said. "We were wandering around there for a few days."
    Hadani said he and Copp were thrown off by FEMA officials. "I can tell you," Hadani said, "that it was not serious rescue work."
    When he found out Copp received money from the victims fund, Hadani got angry.
    "That's outrageous," he said. "It's immoral."

    Have you seen the absolute nonsense items he sells on his website?

    The ARTI ' Casualty Locator '
    The first and only machine in the world capable of precisely locating dead victims; either, on the bottom of the bay, lake, river, landslide, mine collapse, or murder victims in the forest, desert, garbage dump or mass grave site.

    The ARTI ' Mine Collapse Live Victim Locator '
    The first machine, in the world, capable of precisely locating live victims in voids found when mines collapse. You can hear a trapped victim up to 600 feet through solid rock!

    The ARTI ' O3 Emergency Detox System '
    Primarily designed for major disaster rescue workers, personnel recovering victims from mass grave sites; such as, Kosovo and first and foremost divers recovering corpses. The equipment, uniform or dive suit, and the body surface of the rescuer is detoxified of all bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.

    Quake Alarm
    This device will give you a warning in advance of an earthquake.
    Enough advanced warning to save your life!

    Are you bleeping kidding me?

    Feds Investigate

    Copp's body-finding machine, which he said he invented, turned out to be a commercially available gas detector.
    Makes for enlightening reading...

    Oh, by the way FFFRED...you need to give the media some credit for attempting to expose this imposter. Read the extensive articles by the Albuquerque Journal. http://www.abqjournal.com/terror/
