Just a quick question to clear up some personal confusion...
...if they are trying to keep this from the American public, what is there to hide?
Do they not want us to know that LV is in a downward spiral?
That attacks by the public on the gov't are happening?
Or are they simply trying to not misreport what is happening?
Not trying to call anyone out, I'm just curious as to what they would be trying to cover up...
Despite current reports this all began inside the federal building, so how was the suspect (s) able to get passed security?

''Yessir, the patsy is down. Understood, commence clean-up phase.''
Authorities say a gunman shot dead in a gunbattle after killing a courthouse security guard and wounding a federal marshal in Las Vegas had a "lengthy" criminal history in Tennessee and California.
FBI Special Agent in Charge Kevin Favreau said Tuesday that 66-year-old Johnny Lee Wicks faced murder charges in Memphis, Tenn., in the mid-1970s, and sex assault charges in Sacramento, Calif., in the late 1980s.
The FBI and local police say Wicks torched his apartment and walked three miles to the courthouse before opening fire Monday morning, killing 72-year-old security officer Stanley Cooper.
