500 plus casualties, thousands of rounds of ammunition, inside of about 15 minutes.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around the numbers.
How the hell did he get that much heat into a motel?
I'm not accepting the whole "lone wolf" thing at present.


58+ Dead 500+ Wounded

That source says it was the 44th floor.

I thought it was the 32nd floor.


More interestingly I just watched a LONG eyewitness report on CNN from a woman who was in the Mandalay Bay apparently. She said she was on the 64th floor looking down at the carnage - she said it more than once. I did not think there was a 64th floor. Bloody odd.

I read he had been there 10 days..not hard to bring in 1 or 2 a day, or they were breakdowns in luggage.

Thats wired.

To be fair though she could just be making her story up to get her 15mins of fame on tv.

The brother is back on CNN now saying that they never knew their Dad. For what it's worth.

Someone deliberately killing people for ten to fifteen minutes isnt having a breakdown they are operating in a zone or on bloodlust or something but obviously very functional.

A guy knocks out 2 large windows in a big vegas hotel and no one goes up to investigate? This really stinks...

Maybe - she was on for 15 minutes, lol. I am going to get her details as they were up on screen.. She was calling into Wolf Blitzer. Blitzer even prompted her... "so you were on the 64th floor looking down... "... "yes", she says. She also has a video that has been posted.

Her name is Meghan Kavalus. She presented her eyewitness statement over the phone like a professional.
She used to work at all places, the Trump National Golf Club.

I don't think it would be that difficult. America is so smug about how secure we are, we don't pay attention to things like a dude taking 12 trips from his car to his room. I remember the week before 9/11, I forgot to take a filet knife out of my carry-on - very sharp, 10" or so blade. Once I got him and unpacked, I thought "Wow.. I made it onto the plane with this!"

We don't expect to be attacked, so we are not prepared for an attack, nor how to watch for one.

if only one of those concert goers had brought a missile launcher!!

the only other result that could have happened if a lot of the concert goers had been armed with guns is that some of them could have panicked, thought they knew where the shots were coming from and opened fire in that directions causing more chaos and death!!

Having stayed there many times...and seeing the windows first hand...I ALWAYS assumed the windows had sensors.

We know nothing, but my thoughts have been domestic violence. A break in relationship and a break in brain function.


Definitely a failure in brain function somehow.

IF...the brother is to believed that shooter was non-political (no political allegiance or affiliation) and non-religious.

He owned a couple of planes from what I read and more than one residence and was retired.
The brother said he was a retired accountant and "played $100 dollar per hand poker".
If he was in significant financial trouble, he would not have had money to gamble with and they said he was gambling during his hotel stay.

My question is where did he get full automatic rifles. His brother said last time he helped him move, he just had a couple of handguns and a long rifle for hunting.

Whoever sold him the weapons he stocked the hotel room with might have insight into his state of mind.

Also...apparently it was one louder boom followed moments later by the pops of the shooting.

He might have blown the window out? With what? Home-made explosives of something else?

face23785:

Interesting you didn't include it's been reported Paddock had "large transactions" at the casino recently. They're investigating whether they were wins or losses. If they were big losses that would be somewhat relevant wouldn't you say?


I don't believe the 'transactions' are relevant to the shooting itself, as they were recent transactions over the last few weeks? If these transactions were accumulations of debt over a longer period of time, then it could be justified to include them as being part of his motive.

Paddock's recent behaviour implies to me that he had decided to commit this act and then kill himself some time ago. He arrived in Vegas with all his guns, set up a camera so he could watch for police in the corridor, with the probable intent to kill himself before the police could get him. Which of course, is what happened.

I should think the transactions were nothing more than aspects of erratic behaviour, as if he had decided to 'give away' his possessions because he believed at the time that he would no longer need them. How do you think the transactions would affect Marilou Danley if she and Paddock shared finances? If she had left him, perhaps he sought to hit back at her in some way. How long has she been out of the country? Something obviously triggered him, and currently I am thinking in terms of a souring of his relationship?


Let's save the speculation.


Let's not, eh? This is a website utterly filled with speculation on all sorts of topics.

It's all just part of living in America. Mass shootings are part of the culture. Guns are part of the culture.

People are outraged and sad for a while then there is a collective shrug of the shoulders and society moves on. "What can you do?"

There have been 274 "mass shootings" in 2017 alone. (I dont know what qualifies as an "official" shooting, aside from the numbers killed or wounded).

The events in Vegas are tragic. They are inevitable. Events like them will continue to happen. Endlessly.

Only when enough people have finally had enough will anything concrete be done.

At this point it seems we are far from such a consensus.

(Cue the canned talking points in 3,2,1...)

I'd say he knocked them out then just started shooting. Also with a loud concert going on, people aren't going to hear a window breaking too well

Unless Wikipedia is outdated, it states its 43 floors

The evidence can point to whatever they want it to point to if it was indeed staged and I'm not saying it is. But to accept everything exactly as being stated in the first 24 hours is not a good idea especially with the track record of our officials. It's possible their narrative will continue to carry regardless and this was perfectly planned (again if staged). Sometimes we find holes other times we don't. The only people that know the truth are those directly involved and possibly first responders, sometimes not even them. I don't trust anything anymore, so many lies in the past 30 years one after another and everything smells bad.



It smells terrible. But look at all the people claiming not to trust the government; eating up the official story.


The so called shooters brothers has just been interviewed on TV and he is shocked and doesn't appear to believe his brother did or could do such a thing. Is he a PATSY!


I just watched that too.
They said the shooter had already killed himself before the cops got there....could there still be someone else out there? I hope more details will be forthcoming.....
If he was alone, it's scary to think someone so normal with no signs of this about to happen, it just doesn't make sense that they're saying that this was planned for a long time...so he didn't just snap.

Especially after watching his brother, he was looking very much in shock.
Just seen his brother speak again and he said all was Ok, they just sold some apartments. He says he couldnt even make anything up, there is nothing! This stinks!
