The video has been edited, I wonder what was removed? In my opinion, it shouldn't have taken a lawsuit for this information to be released. It was argued that releasing the videos would further traumatize those affected by the horrific mass-shooting.
NPR SOURCE

Newly released body camera footage from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department provides a closer look at the tense moments for police during and following the October 2017 mass shooting in which Stephen Paddock opened fire from his hotel room windows, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more. The footage from two officers was released Wednesday in response to a lawsuit brought by multiple news organizations seeking the release of 911 recordings, bodycam footage and documents related to the shooting. Video released to The Associated Press includes the moments after police entered Paddock's room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to find the 64-year-old man dead from a self-inflicted gunshot.

Another video provided to NPR:


The two videos are part of about 2 1/2 hours of video police released after the Nevada Supreme Court on Friday refused a request by the Las Vegas police to delay the release. Several media outlets had sued to obtain 911 recordings, body camera video and other documentation after police refused a request to release the information. The police had argued against the release of the recordings, saying the release would "further traumatize a wounded community." It would also force officers to "relive the incident," Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo told reporters Tuesday.

I am of course tagging on to this thread...

Interesting the last part of the second video the comment "I really think this is a one guy thing" the other officer "What about the other reports" very interesting the narrative that video is setup to create...

Remember this was not some kind of training, it was a real situation. That´s what you do, you asses the situation and that´s what they were doing in the video.

How would the all-time-suspicious react if they had cut that scene out? Exactly the same way.

I was there...


What I want to see is ALL 2 1/2 hours not clips.

Great for you if you were there and made it out without harm. That does not change or relate to anything in my post. If you were there, then you should know how chaotic everything was.

Sure it would be nice if everything get´s released. I think one of the reasons they won´t release everything might be not to give future attackers any insight on internals.

I know exactly how chaotic it was. We were with a swat team for hours hearing each possibly false report.

Which is a huge reason why I want to see all video evidence, there is a lot of the timeline that doesn't add up to me. What we are being shown is clipped and I found it interesting the comments in that clipped file following exactly what we were told "A single shooter" I hope you understand it seemed prompted or on purpose.

I understand not giving future attackers insight and exploits, however there should be a lot of oversight on how this wasn't ended sooner. Harder still for me to believe that hotel didn't have a team prepared for something very similar as Casino have always been points of attack just for monetary reasons...Seeing the entire footage allows for no misinterpretation.

The cops had 7 months to alter this and everybody knows they did. Cops need to release videos immediately.

How can we be sure of that? Is there any timestamps or dates on the footage? Can it be manipulated? What if this was a recreation of that night?

Just throwing these questions out there.

Regarding why it didn't end sooner- exactly. I want to know that as well. We've never been given a plausible reason why it took them over an hour! to get into that room. None of the three or four different stories they gave us explained that hour-plus delay.

There must be something they truly want covered up, since they would rather have us believe they're so crappy at their SWAT jobs that it took more than an hour to get their snip together than give us the truth of what really went down.

Did ya'll notice that question "What were those shots fired in here?"

It's when one of the officers in the room is giving a quick run-down to officers gathered in the hallway after they'd breached the room. He just blows right past it by saying "We had an explosive breach."

"What were those shots fired in here?"

Remember we got several stories about that. At first, on the police scanners that night, it was "We've taken one suspect down." Then later it was the suspect took himself down. Then later it was there were no shots after the SWAT entered entered. Then it was there was an accidental discharge by an officer.

Do we know why we only get 3 minutes of tape when they "released" 2 and 1/2 hours? How can the regular public see the full two hours I wonder? Because it's clear to me, as other members in this thread have pointed out, that these clips are manipulated to support their official story. It's obvious.

there is at least one other, 3 May report that the newest info on the Vegas shooters room just released by FBI


No Windows were smashed in the snipers' room... so who-where did the barrage-of-hundreds-of-rounds-at the crowd come from ?

the alleged helicoptors...maybe another group of Radical Jihadists somewhere on the top 6 floors controlled by a Saudi Prince

No wonder the official story was first going to be held up until October 2018, at the 1 year anniversary of the LV massacre boasted by ISIS as being their doing !

Yah when CTs and the like are already prone to jumping to conclusions I'm sure that would work out well.

Those are good questions that need to be asked. I guess you mean that it could be some sort of training/made afterwards video that is sold as the real deal.

Sure, that´s a possibility.

Oh, it stuck out to me too, no question. I often play devils advocate for allowing myself (but mostly others) seeing multiple sides of a story.

That includes pointing out stuff that I do not neccessary think to be the case, but could be. This is why you´ll see me defend person X on one thread while I have strong words against person X in another one, as an example.

Hope you get what I mean. Many many many other members, do not. For them it´s pick a side.

The thing i notice about the videos is the quality of the sound on their radios is awful.

How are they supposed to communicate clearly and accurately and know exactly what was being said to them. Should be crisp and clear like normal radios, it is the emergency services afterall, communication is crucial in their line of work.

Police were actually onsite before the shooting ended...

That is why I want the entire video. Then I am not taking it out context, I am seeing it in its entirety do base a rational conclusion. Nothing in that video is sensitive to me, but I want to know what they did, how long and how it went down. It would if anything set my mind at ease.

I understand that, when you have been in such a terrifying situation, you want disclosure of all details possible.

Especially when something (you wrote it I think) is long overdue and something simple like uploading a video. Sure, it´s not that easy, I guess there are some laws and what not to mind.

Yes! See? Even worse. I hope I never have an emergency in Vegas because their response time is deadly slow.

They're ok with the public thinking it took them more than an hour to get coordinated and get into a room where the shooting was coming from. Took them more than an hour out in that hallway to get their snip together.

Not. What do you think happened with that, Bev?
