im just curious if anyone else has noticed just how quickly weve all decided to forget about the las vegas shooting and move on to sexual scandals in hollywood, sexual scandals in politics, etc. this just blows me away and is making me ever more suspicious about what happened in las vegas. i mean we havent even seen a video from inside the casino, something we all know they have and yet the media and everyone seems to have just moved on and knowone is making a peep about this, one of the worse massacres in american history.

There's been 55 mass shootings since. The news is not about informing the public. The news is entertainment design to make money. If it bleeds it leads. The news media will say anything if it makes you have an angry reaction. Angry reactions translates into ratings. The news feed is highly engineered to get the maximum ratings. Ratings equals money.

There's nothing unusual about it. The news has been cancelled and replaced with the video version of the National Enquirer.

You want some news. Here's some news:

Mass Shooting Tracker In America



not to try and disregard those other shootings but they dont exactly fit into the category of mass shootings like las vegas, texas etc. i get the part about the media but what bothers me is just how quickly everyone else seems to forget about events like this and move on. on top of that its starting to seem very planned to me. anytime there is some sort of event like this we quickly get some new event to keep us looking the other way

I suspect the short attention span of these events is related to the 24 hour repetitive news cycle.

Not my website. But the tracking is showing shootings involving more than one person.

Here's what the site says is their definitions:




Welcome to the Mass Shooting Tracker, as featured by CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Economist and more.

The most obscene incidents of gun violence usually do not make the mainstream news at all. Why? Because the mainstream media's definition of “mass shooting” should more accurately be described as “mass murder”.

The current FBI definition of mass murder, commonly accepted by the media as a proxy for “mass gun violence”, is three or more people murdered in one event. We believe this does not capture the whole picture. Many people may survive a shooting based on luck alone. Some may be left with life long disabilities and trauma, but the mainstream definition of mass gun violence does not account for this.

Here at the Mass Shooting Tracker, we count the number of people shot rather than the number people killed because, “shooting” means “people shot”.

For instance, in 2012 Travis Steed and others shot 18 people total. Miraculously, he only killed one. Under the incorrect definition used by the media and the FBI, that event would not be considered a mass shooting! Arguing that 18 people shot during one event is not a mass shooting is absurd.

Our definition is this: a mass shooting is an incident where four or more people are shot in a single shooting spree. This may include the gunman himself, or police shootings of civilians around the gunman.

Besides the clarity provided by tracking mass shootings this way, another benefit is that it removes the factor of our miraculous modern medical care system from the equation. The gun lobby benefits from our tremendous ability to save those who would otherwise die, even though those gun shot victims are still just as shot and will never be the same. The NRA evades the gigantic costs of gun injuries to society and shifts the burden to taxpayers who often pay the costs for the medical care of the wounded.

Maintaining a list like this also punches a hole in the NRA argument that if mass shootings are televised, more mass shootings will occur via copycats. In fact, most of these shootings do not receive more than a day's worth of local coverage. Yet mass shootings continue to occur anyway. We believe mass shootings should receive more publicity, not less.

We refuse to ignore the victims of gun violence who survive mass shooting sprees, and we believe the media does a disservice to mass shooting victims by virtually ignoring them unless large numbers are killed.

As of November 2017, the FBI defines a mass shooting as an incident involving "four or more people shot at once."


en.m.wikipedia.org...


So... yes there have been 55 since Vegas.

Without further information being released, why would you expect a shooting from nearly 3 months ago to be given constant attention?

Some people just look at what's in front of them at that moment. Some people have their pet issues that they focus on all the time. Some people just try to keep up.

And some people have been in the crazy so long that it doesn't matter anyways because someone's lying about all of it in some way so what's the point in asking questions until 75 years from now when the paperwork gets redacted and de-classified?

But yeah, one thing after another, after another, after another. It's been like that for a long time.

It's not on the news because a large amount of Americans don't seem to see they have a gun problem? Or a pedo problem. Or a corruption problem. There should be a damn uprising!! And the thing that's also not being bought up enough is the weed killer in your food and drink. That's news. Youre all full of farking weed killer! It's just abuse abuse abuse whichever way you look. I'm in the process of helping make a prototype gun. A laser. That picks up glysophate in food. Now that's a gun that belongs in the news.

What I love about your post is you are so confident about what you know is true. Since you were not spoon fed the 55 you just assume I'm BS'ing you. This in itself says something about the state of our country's mind. Unless you hear about something from the proper authority then it means it's just not true.

That’s not abnormal during an ongoing investigation...

Here’s a question...
How do you know the Vegas shooting wasn’t a distraction from other events around that time?
What if you’re falling into the trap they wanted i.e “keep them focused on this, then pull it so they go down a rabbit hole with a dead end... that should keep them busy for a couple months”...

As a conspiracy theorist (I assume), you should be well aware that we are the primary target of misinformation, distraction and psyops...


& I’m not even disagreeing with your OP...
I just thought these things were worth mentioning.

i dont know that it wasnt a distraction. we dont know anything about it really. what happened to his girlfriend, what happened with jesus campos, what happened with his brother, what happened prior to him going on this massacre in the hotel, where he got his tannerite, where he planned to escape to, what type of bullet wounds the victims had, were they consistent with the firearms and ranges since theres so many eyewitness claiming multiple shooters, etc etc. we have nothing. it is interesting what was going on with the govt during that time though that was pretty much ignored by the media

Now you've done it. Someday soon, expect the MIB to knock on the door, or someone to talk about finding one that can see.

Yeah, very distracting, and there is so much we haven't been told. It's clear someone wants some things to be forgotten. How many involved have died since?

The world keeps turning. We just move on to the next story. That's how it goes.

Would you like them to keep covering the Las Vegas shooting? How should they cover it? Should they cover it instead of sex scandals or the next shooting or the next terror attack? When should news stop being covered?

It's not a distraction. It's life.

How many of the sexual assaults being reported happened within the last 3 months?

Why are we still talking about Trump/Russia, that happened over a year ago. The reason we should still be talking about it is for the same reason we still talk about Trump. We clearly don't have all the info and the info we have isn't adding up. The info is controlled by the Gov't.. We SHOULD want answers, IMHO.

Maybe the mass shootings are a controlled satanic death ritual. The lesser magic mind controlling media inducing the negative emotive states of despair so that the darkness may feed upon the energy being emitted. Would this not make sense? Mass shooting=ritual sacrifice of which creates a very concentrated form of negative energy amongst the population which is then siphoned off by our interdimensional parasitic entities. One of the reasons we forget about it so soon has many reasons. Don't these things often occur around similar times of the year? Usually around Halloween and the winter solstice..just some things to think about.
