March For Our Lives Planned Before Shooting?
*Update - Sources now say that this email is a forgery and detective Earhardt denies he sent it.
According to a recently leak email from a Washington D.C. detective Scott Earhardt, the "March For Our Lives" protest was granted a permit before the actually shooting in Florida occurred. Here is a copy of the email that is going around social media.
While the email could certainly be a forgery, the event that triggered the March 24th demonstration (Parkland Shooting) still has many unanswered questions lingering.
European researcher Ole Dammegard contacted the Metropolitan D.C. Police Department concerning the permit for the March For Our Lives demonstration in Washington, D.C.
Dammegard’s source received the following email from Officer Scott C. Earhardt of the Homeland Security Bureau of the Metropolitan Police Department and forwarded it to Dammegard:
In reference to your inquiry concerning the March For Our Lives Demonstration, here in the District of Columbia on March 24, 2018. MPD received a permit application several months prior to the actual event, and there was several months of planning for this large event.
If your are requesting additional information reference this event, please follow the below steps to file your Freedom of Information Act request:

According to the PDF document, Metropolitan Police Department, Washington.D.C., Scott Earhardt indeed is a detective there. Here’s a screenshot I took from page 6 of the 65-page document:
How can an application be made for a permit for a “March For Our Lives” demonstration “several months” BEFORE the Parkland MSD school shooting that galvanized MSD students to form the Never Again MSD group that organized the demonstration?
