What drives someone to basically commit suicide over political aims? It's like they really believe Trump is going to end the world or something.


No, it's like they believe they can change the world after joining movements and watching fake news programs that support their extreme bias views.

I bet Marilyn Manson is praying right now, that the shooter(s) was not a fan...


Is he out of the Hospital yet? I heard some over head rigging failed at his concert and fell on top of him, injuring him.

On topic it sounds like all they are doing now is holding people at their locations and escorting them out with officers. They are also sending more units to the crime scene to help secure / crowd control.

I just heard on the scanner they have someone named Marylou on the phone who is claiming to know the suspect, but state she's in California?

Getting rumors over social media that 2 suspects are Asian. Cannot confirm.

Norks?


At least they aren't radical Islamists.


Indonesia is 80% Islamic. They're Asian.


Radical Asian Islamic Terrorists? We have a new threat in the world then.


Yes, they exist and are currently very active in the Phillipines. There was also some speculation that Philipino Islamic Terrorists were involved in the naval ship "collision"

I dont think we can draw a conclusion on the perps yet. I do think that backlash is going to be serious. Everyone was already on edge for a hundred different reasons.




The Bojinka plot did evolve in the Philippines

We learn from past mistakes and problems and try not to repeat them.

The Philippines are having an issue with ISIS right now. This in mind
doesn't mean anything as this could be a lone wolf, unknown group, a Filipino Liberation group that wants America out of their country, heck it could be one of those anti-constitutionalist groups. Point is we are going to need to wait to find out who is behind the attack, or if it is just a lone wolf situation.


As for the going on about the fully auto weapon, I don't think so. The firing rate is off (many of you might argue about this but I was a Machine Gunner in the Marine Corps and had quite a few hours on different weapon platforms) To me it sounds like a rapid firing device that are popular with certain people. They used to be fairly easy to get a hold of, but a little harder now. The shooter could also be using his hand in an unconventional way to provide the rapid fire as well, but the cycle of shots seems to regulated for that. If we assumed that the individual was using a fully automatic weapon, then why don't we hear full on automatic firing? We only are hearing the cycled firing. Truth be known though, we'll have to wait and see what weapon it is.

He may have gotten the room using her credentials. According to what we know so far she has worked in vegas hotels for years and has stayed multiple times at the Mandalay.

This guy being connected to Mary Lou is from Arkansas in all the social media I see, but LVPD says the shooter is a local man.

The name I keep seeing is different.



Sure, from Arkansas but lives in Vegas.

Anyone just joining, sadly there are graphic images and video clips going around the net. Be forewarned of what you click. Very saddening just wish people didn't take pictures of victims like that, unless the situation is trying to help familie's identify people.

So if he was using the m249 which fires 750-1000 rounds a minute. That means in just one of his bursts that was 10 seconds long he must have fired off 125+ rounds without reloading... damn

Listening to the scanner they still have 1500 people sheltered in place.

Good thing there wasn't more than one shooter.
