The Las Vegas shooter does not make any sense%#?

    There is going to be much more to this story than meets the eye. So far, the information that has came out about this guy makes no sense at all.
    A man with no digital foot print in the modern era...
    Where did he get his millions?
    A retired accountant does not have that kinds of money.
    Where is his family and ex wives and girl friends and friends...?
    What do they know?
    Where did he gets his guns? And the training on how to use them?
    Where are his medical records?
    Is he on some medication?
    What is his motive?
    He does not fit the MO of a crazy man or a lone wolf?
    He is an enigma and the poster child for gun control.
    Who is funding him?

        Very few gamblers win in the long haul. Most win some and then loose it all back and then some...
        I could understand it if it was high stakes poker where some skills are involved. Video games are rigged and the house always has the advantage. I would be shocked if he could win a million dollars.

                Jack, you will be beating your head against the wall on this one.

                There is no official story, nor any youtube vigilante story that will give the proof, or the truth of what occurred, that you will find verifiable or satisfying.

                America will get the "it was caused by a YouTube video" explanation (reference to what we were told caused Benghazi) from the 'officials' and the media.

                You will never know for sure who did it, why, or who knew. 

                Just accept the official story and move on, unless you like working on puzzles that you can never piece together, if so, have at it.

                  This event reminds me of the movie "Enemy of the State". It just doesn't seem plausible a man can do this without help from the highest level, perhaps the CIA or some other secret government agencies...
                  It may seem conspiratorial but there is no other way to explain it.

                  The TWA800 incident was another one where the official story made no sense at all.

                  Sweetie,  "fully automatic weapons weapons that reload automatically and fire continuously with one trigger pull have been banned for civilians in the United States since the Firearm Owners' Protection Act of 1986." ... that includes belt fed machine guns like Jack and I were discussing.

                  There is a lot of mis-information. 

                  Not many people are buying the lone-wolf nut job narrative.  Trey Gowdy finds the whole story hard to believe, and isn’t quite buying the narrative that one guy was able to pull all of this off by himself. It took a lot of planning and funding.

    Hugs, Jack.  I know this is a very difficult time, and we all want answers because things don't add up from the narrative we are being fed. 

    There are videos online that would confirm there was at least a second shooter.  We can see what looks like mussel blasts coming from the 4th floor, not from the 32nd floor though.  I would like to see mussel blast coming from the 32nd floor like the narrative being reported with zero evidence so far.

    I was listening to a survivor of the mass shooting, and she said that hotel rooms are booked months in advance in Vegas.  (That sounds right, I don't really know.)  If, that is true, then this event was probably planned months in advance.  I'm trying to remember her last name, she is a singer, first name is Kaya.

    Anyone know about hotel bookings in Vegas?

    What is confusing?  Even after you die every record about your life does not become public domain. There is no reason to expect the media to have his private medical and financial records within days, or possibly ever.  The police do not release pictures from an active investigation.  This is normal.

    He is hardly the first mass shooter in America, and similar in many ways to the usual demographics (mass shootings happen somewhere in this nation every 1-3 days) -- he is just one with a higher body count than usual.

      The fact that this person is so much a mystery tells me there is something they are hiding. He is being used as a patsy. Someone wants us, the public, to think he is someone just went berserk...
      Mark my words, there is alot to come out about this shooting and I would not be surprised it is ISIS related...somehow.

        I am not at all naive.  Medical records are protected under HIPAA, evidentiary photographs follow chain of custody. Everyone who accessed them is identified in Federal systems and hospitals and so leaks from these sources are easily traced.  Local sheriff and GPs maybe not so much, but this case is locked down tight.  I have direct experience with both systems.

        This person is not a mystery at all.  His brother was interviewed on TV, his neighbors and coworkers have spoken about him.  The media just doesn't have access to the material you want to see.  But the guy is exactly what he seems to be, a rich old white guy who decided to blow a lot of people away with automatic weapons. Not sure what is unclear about that.

          Do tell?

          I haven't followed this story, but I wonder, have they shown the hotel camera's that have him lugging in large cases into his hotel room?

          Do they have the parking lot cameras showing his arrival?

          I am just wondering what evidence they have shown, in this digital age, where cameras are everywhere, of his arrival, of his entry into the hotel, of his activities in and out of the room if there were any...

          Somehow all those weapons had to get in there, either by him bringing them in himself, or less likely, by him paying a delivery service to deliver them (a risky proposition as that may raise flags, break laws that expose him to being discovered).

          If this was a solo shooter, a paranoid psychopath, chances are he did all this himself, trusting no one to carry those weapons up there (for fear of being discovered) so that would require more than one trip to his room I'd imagine... multiple trips to bring all those materials up.

          And how about during the shooting, with everyone having cell phones/video cameras, and the shooting lasting over ten minutes, there must be scores of videos... dozens... showing clearly something occurring from his room. 

          Even if he is sitting back inside the room with a high powered scoped rifle, sniper style, shooting that long, with broken/open windows, would produce something of note, and would be captured by multiple people in the area on their phones.

          Maybe all this is being shown on the news... I don't know... as I said I am not following it.  But if they haven't shown clear proof of his movement at the hotel (security videos taken from the hotel entrance or parking lot) and there is no private/cell-phone video conclusively proving where the shots were coming from during that duration of time, then you are being sold story... simple as that.

Seems like the most vicious way to attack someone.

    I've been thinking about the unhinged man, around the same age as this man, that had a hit list to take out Republicans.
    He was all worked up about Trump and the G.O.P. and was full of hate against them....and so he opened fire on them, as they practiced baseball.

    We've read about the CBS Exec that wrote she didn't have sympathy for the  victims gunned down because country music fans are often Republican gun toters.
    Another tweeted, praying only Trumptards died. You get the gist.

      There are teams of undercover investigators that have infiltrated organizations like the violent Antifa, some pretty good footage has led to arrests.  I saw one clip recently where a transgender (actually a guy) was telling how they planned to lure Trump supporters to their vehicles and then stab them with short knives, and said since the knives are short you really gotta stab them hard.  He/she said they had some ARs coming.  The violent left is planning on spilling more blood, they must think CW2 is the answer. I don't get it.

        Being psychotic does not prevent people from planning. You can function perfectly well while having one or more psychotic symptoms. In fact, it could be argued that most people carry around at least one delusion.

        That said, human behavior is complex--there will not be one simple reason why he did it. But statistically speaking he is more likely to have simple goals (e.g. express anger, attack a type of person he does not like) than complex ones (e.g. some conspiracy with wide-reaching goals).

    In essence, because of the differences in the speed of sound vs. the speed of the bullets from a known cartridge (.223 Remington, in this case), the time lag between the last bullet hitting the pavement and the last audible report of the rifle muzzle can be used to very accurately calculate the range of the shooter.

    More importantly, when the audio from the Las Vegas shooting is analyzed, it reveals TWO shooters operating at the same time, not just one shooter. Shooter #1 is operating at 425 – 475 yards, which is consistent with the Mandalay Bay hotel, but shooter #2 is operating at approximately 250 – 270 yards.

              There will never be truth for those that refuse to accept reality.  For Vegas that means, at this time, the best guess is a single shooter.  And if another isn't found in the next few weeks it means there was only one.

                I am not sure where you stand on all those issues, heck I have never heard anything about Bush and 9/11 in the context you frame.  But if you think the official stories on these and other issues and truth are one and the same, you are sadly mistaken.

                You know the saying: They can fool some of the people all of the time, and some of the people some of the time, but they can't fool all of the people all of the time.

                Not that I am saying its worth questioning the 'official' stories, not that I think it makes a difference if you know the truth(s) or not.

                There is only one truth you need to worry about when it comes to these things:

                You can't do a damned thing about any of them, and if you knew 100% for certain what the truth was about all of them, however you became aware of it, it would do nothing for you, and you could do nothing with it.

                  Oh yes.  Bush personally mined the towers.  Brought in tons of explosives, ran miles of blasting wire, pulled down thousands of square feet of walls, then put them back up, to get at the steel behind them.  It's a well known fact! sad

                    Let me ask you something, if this was a ISIS attack, or if this was a BLM attack, or Antifa attack on a large collection of white people at a country concert, what would the National reaction be? 

                    If it were up to me, and I were making the decision, what we are being told is pretty much what I would have come up with as well... crazy white guy with no connections to any group and no motive. Anything else, and lord knows just how dangerous things get in America, and how many vigilantes spread violence.

                    This is why knowing the 'truth' would do you no good... if what they are selling isn't the truth, then the truth could only be more damaging to our country, our society, and safety.

    Obama did declassify the 28 pages about 9/11 that Bush classified.  Although they were heavily redacted. It changed the official narrative that blamed Iraq, and started a senseless war.   I am thankful for that presidential action, because it opened the door for the victims and family members of 9/11 to be able to sue Saudi Arabia.  Despite the Saudi's threats to withdraw assets from the US, that would likely have crash our financial system, O' called their bluff.  That truth came out, but it hardly got the media coverage it should have, so many people may still believe the cover story.
