The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking for the public;s help in getting evidence from the shooting at LAX last week. Yesterday, November 2 2013 the FBI launched a new web site where people that filmed any of the incident can upload it via a secure server.
"No bit of evidence is too small", FBI agents said. People will attempt to film a calamity. Some are stupid enough to up load it on a file sharing site like You Tube or maybe even share it for free with the local news. There, they are making millions off content given to them for free.
The smart people want to help and know not to give their video away for free. This avenue allows them to do that. The suspect, Paul Ciancia was arrested and faces murder and related charges on the Federal and State level. Still , authorities need the public's help in determining if Ciancia had help.
Who drove him to the airport? What kind of vehicle was he riding in? Did he purchase anything prior to his arrival. With LAX one of the busiest airports in the world, potential witnesses could be any where. That is why the FBI is asking people across the country to upload their evidence. Maybe a traveler grabbed a quick photo being dropped off. Perhaps a school student was filming something for a project or an airplane buff was filming something and caught something on film.
When the gunfire happened, people panicked and ran. Some stayed put. It's a natural reaction when you hear gun fire to run away from it. Some people filmed themselves running and that video could be important, authorities said.
