ISIS are at the stage where they are indiscriminately claiming any terrorist action that happens. I think they probably claimed this one on a "rubber stamp" basis before the shooter was identified as an apparent WASP.

Perhaps this guy's motive was that he really hated country music and was tying to get some sleep. You know that annoying neighbour who plays their music in the middle of the night? And that grouchy old neighbour who always complains about the noise of your music when it's not even that loud? Those, combined, times 1,000.

(N.b., not entirely serious, but based on the very few facts available)

Other than an addiction to watching Fox News he seemed like a normal guy.

But seriously, it just goes to show you money doesn't equal happiness. Without a strong connection to community and the well-being of others then life has a lot less meaning. Obviously, once he snapped, he no longer saw other people's lives as being sacred and certainly had no empathy for the people who lost love ones. Otherwise, he would not have done such an unthinkable act.

I and many other know the profile.

And some (MSM) are doing their best to hide it.





What "signs" did Paddock exhibit? I'm playing catch-up.


Carefully commenting....(not in the mudpit)

For example, they are pushing gambling and jilted romance as 2 possible "causes".

Neither have anything to do with the events last night.



Thank-you for bringing me up to the minute, with what the MSM is focusing on.

If Gambling dissatisfaction was a motive, you'd think that Paddock would have attacked a casino.

Jilted Romance? There was a girlfriend staying with him for part of the time in Las Vegas. Police found her debit card in his hotel room.

This incident reminds me of the professional assassins portrayed in movies. They keep their nose clean in daily life, but when "activated", perform their assigned task with precision, and without emotion.



American Assassin begins with Terror attack on a beach in Dubai.

Mandalay Bay does boast a beach setting.

You've got it right, 100%.

I was coming to say just what you said. He's not a white supremacist, he's not a nazi, he's not antifa, he's not daesh, he's not tumblr, and he's not 4chan.

He was simply a wealthy individual who's grasp exceeded his reach. He achieved a good amount in life and likely faced some amount of disillusionment with his current station. The boredom, lack of challenge, and sheer banality of it all may have gotten the best of his mind. I am reminded of "The Most Dangerous Game", Emperors with private gladiatorial arenas, and Kings who would simply start conflicts despite their control over territory being absolute.

Now, all of this is subject to change given the evolving nature of the situation, but if the words remains sparse...it's likely the idle mind that won out in this very wealthy individual.

I'd say, shun those who are trying to put a left or right wing slant on this situation without any substantial proof.
I remember certain fools were running wild with accusations of him being a Trumpet, a member of Daesh, or a Pink hat wearer...ignore them.

Having gambling debts that got paid off somehow a short time ago fits the profile of a patsy.


Say, that's interesting. Where did you hear that? Wow.


Yeah I'm looking for the primary source at the moment but as I go up the google food chain on that it looks more like a possibility rather than confirmed. Either way though gambling a lot by itself does fit one basic sort of patsy profile.

Enlighten us.

Or are we not worthy?


I gave the reason already.

Don't be a baiter.

Now is not the time.

That is a very good observation given what we know so far. I hope there's some piece of information that paints a clearer picture that just hasn't been discovered yet.

If it's just no reason, YIKES!!!

simple, a crime of boredom.
when you have all you need, and the worst part of your day is a hangover from an amazing night last night... then the devil will find work for idle hands to do...

he didn't want to die nameless...


So this nut takes weeks to plan this operation to the hilt and you think it's boredom ?

True, but it's still early days ( or day 1) in this, soon enough some other tales might emerge. Seems the brothers weren't in close contact with each other, so what does he really know?

They usually are the loner, loser type though. Having wealth means nothing.

His age doesn't fit the profile either.

Maybe he was there to repay is gambling marks to the casino and he did not like the music was hearing and just snapped.

We all know the stereotyping and stigmas created by the MSM too.

Get off it.

Correct.

According to Antifa, violence is "justified" in stopping "fascists"...and then a similar echo from BAMN, By Any Means Neccessary....

...This mess started with the shooting of Steve Scalise, with violence against conservative in general following, and now moving on to execution of anyone opposing the far left...all because they have "empathy" and they "care", none of which are seemingly picking up on the cognitive dissonance....

...what this is really is narcissist rage, nothing else....

Has anyone considered the possibility that this guy was just in the wrong room at the wrong time and that this is a false flag attack?

Jaden

Very possible the real culprit shot him and dumped his body in there for cops to find.
I didn't think of that actually.

Unfortunately we live in such a divisive society, both in our domestic and foreign views that attacks are inevitable.

Until we change our societal view, these are going to be a constant as they have post WWII as we exited isolationism.

Once we become comfortable enough with out domestic and world view and stop approaching both with dominance, we'll start to see less backlash.
