Three ads calling for crisis actors have appeared on Craigslist recently, coinciding in the week the 2016 Democratic National Convention is due to take place.
The ad calls for crisis actors dressed in fake wounds for a military-style training exercise in Burlington, VT – Bernie Sanders’ hometown and his campaign headquarters.
And with that, not one but THREE new calls for crisis actors are out on Craigslist.
(Note: all have been archived, as these things tend to disappear quickly.)
The first is from Linxx Global Solutions, a Government contracting company looking for role players for positions in the Ft A.P. Hill, VA area for a law enforcement exercise June 23, 2016 between 3pm-1am.
Independent Contractors will act as Role Players (RPs) by posing as hostile, friendly or neutral personnel who will support scripted/preplanned reactions and/or interactions. RPs will wear assigned wardrobe and safety equipment while responding accordingly based on the scenario. RPs may be asked to operate various small arms with blank- and paint-marking ammunition. RPs must be comfortable around military working dogs. RPs will deliver a realistic performance based on the scenario objectives for training. RPs will take directions from the Site Manager.
