Is it Gross Incompetence – The Vegas shooting STILL STINKS.

Linky McLinkles

This has been bothering me for months, and it seems like no one cares anymore. Or wants answers, except the victims who are suing.

I guess the daily famous perverts being exposed for jacking off in front of women is swamping the headlines. Seriously - What's with that? And that fat little tyrant who's lobbing missiles left and right and threatening us. Or the 'Armageddon' Tax Reform... as if cutting taxes will destroy our economy. So much to talk about these days it's hard to cover it all.

Anywho.

I spent to much time on this article. But I like answers and this thing stinks.

As a shooting forum, I'd like to hear your thoughts. Especially on the guns/shooting.

Tucker Carlson asked questions last night and the answers were ugly. One was why was it that Vegas has a 40 member swat team but not one was there to go into the room. It seems as though the hotel owners have stopped information comming out to protect the hotel from law suits.

So many unanswered questions too, why did the cops take the investigation away from the homicide crew and give it to a crew that has never covered homicide. Carlson said you can smell the lies it stinks so bad.

Really?

I'll have to watch that segment now.

I only stream for TV, so what news I catch is online.

The whole thing is crazy. Paddock appears to have CIA connections. He certainly appears in Antifa/anti-Trump video footage. There's good evidence to support he converted to islam and this was his jihad.

Video survellance of Vegas casinos is second to none yet there doesn't seem to be much of Paddock.

It does indeed stink to high heaven.

All that investigative power - and they cannot seem to answer the simplest questions. Least when they are not going back on themselves and changing answers.

The biggest mass shooting in our history and these months later - dead silence. Even from the left who one would have thought - would be all over it.

One wonders why that is.

Many questions and no answers.

Things certainly do not add up, I highly doubt we will ever hear the actual story on this one. The fix is in....

Think about how much time and money has been wasted on trying to convict Trump of the made-up crime of "talking to a Russian' vs. what has been spent on this case....

Stinks is an understatement.

I think the answer is deceptively simple. It is all about $$$$. Las Vegas was developed into a gambling oasis to relieve people of their money. So the powers that be will do their best to keep a lid on any information or findings that could have a very negative effect on the gambling money flow.

And so it goes.

well, the facts are that big players are seriously involved in the vegas shooting/slaughter, so the bullshit the media has been force feeding us about a single shooter is all a cover up, smoke and mirrors

Merc’s were sent in by a Saudi prince when he figured out he was being targeted by the FBI in a sting op for running guns for terrorists here in the US, Trumps visit to Saudi had to be a “wake-the-****-up-asshole” trip because all kinds of shit hit the fan within the house of Saud, lots of people died/disappeared

To create enough confusion the Merc’s used a M240 SAW to slaughter the crowd at the concert, this we know, the sound signature has been matched

Paddock was undercover for whichever ABC/agency you wish to call out, probably several at the same time, the Merc’s knew that Paddock had to die and look like he did the shooting

we know the Merc’s left Mandalay Bay walked across the way and caught a chopper on top of the Four Seasons for a clean get away

all of us little people do not amount to a zit on the ass of these big players and they figure that it is easier to ignore and deflect us

the last several news conferences the vegas cops & sheriff you could easily see they were pissed that they could not honestly answer questions, they were muzzled

I know this sounds like real tinfoil hat stuff, but once you step back to take in everything the slimy shit starts oozing together

Coincidence - ?

Always a bill to follow! Those putting this bill on the table, are simply complicit, some unwittingly I expect but part of the cabal that set this whole masquerade up in the first place! DS shit!

I think one thing to consider is did anyone see the guy found dead on the floor shoot anyone or anything.

You hear nothing of the biker shooting shit at the Twin Peaks in Waco these days huh. Short memories are always better for the sheep.

Heard something maybe a week or so ago-

Was flipping channels on the tube.

I have NO idea if this guy is decent, a flake, or whatever- his name is Wayne Allan Root, he has a talk show on Newsmax.

Some people were calling in about this Vegas stuff. Towards the end of the show, they claimed that 5 people who saw/reported 'ancillary things' in regards to this, are now dead. One supposedly had a 'house fire from hell', supposedly the FD couldn't put it out- the other had an accident...I didn't hear about the other 3, I didn't catch the whole show.

Again...I don't know this guy from Adam, or if his show if foil-lined, but it sure seemed odd to see/hear something like that on the tube.

Who the hell knows what really happened. If the truth could be known, would anyone believe it anyway, now that we are in the Fake News Era. Probably more 'letters' involved in this than in a can of alphabet soup.

It's kind of like in the Good, The Bad, and The Ugly- but instead of Tuco's reference being to 2 kinds of spurs, there's two kinds of information-
'Their' information, and what is allowed for 'public consumption' on the evening idiot box.

Sounds > .......but so be it.

There's so many frickin' cameras in that town,you should have been able to see him from the moment he entered the city limits to the moment he closed his hotel room door. Hell,I wouldn't doubt if the smart TV in the suite watches you. The sheriff claimed he fired about a thousand rounds.Anybody do a report count? Did there look like a thousand spent cases on the floor?
Yeah,it stinks,but hopefully,it is stinking to us for a reason unbeknownst to us.
Might be part of an overhaul of the top-tier of FBI,and rooting out the rats.

Any findings will be used for civil suits,,, ergo the hesitation to offer conjecture and start a shit storm,,, see the prohibition against shouting "fire" in a crowded venue.

History says premature conclusions will create a perception that may or may not be valid,,, without standing invalid suits for damages outnumber the valid ones,,, the public need to know is the single most contributing factor for erroneous conclusions.

Instant gratification is not a virtue or a Constitutional right,,, a short attention span is not a valid reason to jump to conclusions,,, politicians love and count on short attention spans.

How many citizens personal histories are so unremarkable and vague as to be considered non-existent for investigative purposes ?

At present I have no idea of where to start examining the behavior of a ordinary heretofore law abiding citizen who turns crazed mass murderer,,, once I've done a in-depth study of this and other mass murders I will opine and/or complain,,, I probably should not depend on the internet to educate me with exactitude,,, I would probably have to stir my ass and make a 1st person investigation.

As a infantry rifleman I was trained to know that aimed fire was the surest way to win a firefight,,, full auto can be fatal to those who use it promiscuously except as a get out of town cover,,, one deliberate aimed shot with one kill is a proven method to obtain the desired result,,, you might even get 58 kills before you get off'ed yourself.

Company man gone rogue/crazy would account for all this non information and answer most questions folks have.
Never good when a company man goes off the reservation.

For the record, I don't think it's a 'Vast Left Wing Conspiracy'.

I think it's a combination of things, and someone brought up the very good points of the lawsuits against the police dept response as well as the hotel would keep a lot of things from being released.

I suspect we will see a lot more information come to light as that case progresses.

But when something like this is used to shape policy and laws, and we don't know even the most basic of facts or trust what we've been told due to the changes made, it's rather annoying and troublesome.

Vegas thrives on the people that bring their cash to that city.

Anything that threatens the flow of cash is a threat to all.

Of course they're going to sanitize this event.

I see a few more.

Lindsey Lohan, Ozzie Osbourne, Shia Lebeouf, Amanda Bynes, Bill Cosby, Charlie Sheen, Kanye West, Vladmir Putin, Mike Tyson, Miley Cyrus...

TJ Miller played the bartender, whatever his name is.

Never noticed all that, thanks for the distract. lol.

Deadpool was the last movie my wife went to see with me before our Daughter was born a couple days later. I worry about what effect that will have.
