    Exactly, but our climate of resentment politics keeps coming back to this. Man up is no longer the aproach to life. Instead of training people to not miss opportunities that come their way it's all about complaining you didn't have the same opportunities of others.

    Hasn't helped anyone overcome anything.

    Sounds about right. We'll ignore people in other casinos that saw and heard shots coming in through the doors.

    It's just a 'conspiracy theory'

    I had friends in and around the event. I had friend in the Aria and inside of Excalibur. All said people would come running in from outside saying there was a shooter, and in the panic the "telephone game" effect would occur, causing consistent false claims of shooters in those areas. The scanner supports this concept as consistently had "shots heard at ___" then followed by "at scene, no shooter".

    People within high-stress scenarios they are not prepared for are the WORST at recalling what occurred and in what order.

    First 48 = Real Crime Scene Investigations
    Main Stream Media = Government Agency sponsored sales ads to the masses funded by 6 billionaires.

    Update from coroner's office:

    1,100 rounds fired

    58 victims died from bullet wounds, none from trampling. Of these:

    21 from headshot
    36 from chest/back strike
    1 from leg strike
    4 had multiple bullet wounds

    Stephen Paddock died of one self-inflicted shot inside the mouth.

    Is the investigation concluded yet? I'm not alarmed at the FBI not releasing video footage from the hotel as long as the investigation is ongoing.

    Once the investigation is concluded, I expect them to release the footage. If they don't, THEN I'll start considering conspiracies.

    Last I had heard is, it might be as late asoct of this year before they close the case. Then it may take even longer before they release any details about the case.

    How the fuck do 52 people die of stingle bullet woulds and only 4 have multiple?

    I’d also like to know the numbers of people with a bullet wound who lived. That might make this make more sense, but that ratio of single strikes to multiple seems wonk

    I always found it odd that he used ar-15 vs. ar-10. A 308 seems to be a way better choice for what he intended. As far as the number of single bullet kills I assume the angle he was shooting at was the deciding factor.

    Well it was 350-450 yards away and he was just spraying. Doesn't surprise me at all that there are very little people hit more than once.

    the bullets coming from a high angle probably accounted for the high number of fatalities, especially shots to the head

    most articles ive read say "500 wounded" so atleast several hundred injured but not killed i assume

    I can agree.
    Last year I was at UCLA during the shooting at engineering bldg 4. I was about 60’ away from the shooting. I had to evacuate the construction site and it was crazy how many people were freaking out making shit up..i finally got everyone to quad area (1/4 mile away) I had girls run past me screaming saying they think there’s multiple shooters on roof...lol. The swat was on roof by then. I could also hear people on there phone throwing all kinds of crazy stories. The worst was the dipshit kids snap chatting crying and bringing the hard melodramatics..even after shooter was dead and campus was secure.

    In the end it was one guy (student)one gun,two deaths(student and professor).

    But during the commotion,I heard 4-5 shooters, terrorists,it was taliban,it was nazis..all kinds of shit.

    My point is..chaos Brings the derps

    The percentage of those killed who were struck multiple times is twice that of the percentage of people who were at the festival who got shot, so it doesn’t seem that unbelievable.

    Which either means she wasn't contacted by the shooter beforehand, or knew it was him when things went down. But she was supposedly out of the country when it happened.

    But hey she was cleared of all wrong doings. Even tho she claims to possibly have her prints on the loaded magazines that he just bought ammo for days before shooting happened.

    The real interesting part is the shooter allegedly emailing himself info about range rentals, optics and bumpfire devices, having a mini conversation; either he was just nuts, or talking to somebody.
