I’m pretty hard headed sometimes, ok most of the time. Anyway, getting back to that video of the lady cab driver and when she was pulling out of the Mandalay Bay. Beginning around 4:45, she clears the overhang of the entryway and you see what is muzzle flash or strobe lights. What I don’t get is how they timed the strobe lights to coincide with the sound of gunfire. Also, someone said that was videod from the backside of the Mandalay Bay so it wasn’t even facing the concert venue. I think that is wrong. If I remember correctly, the main drive up entrance to the hotel would be on the same side as the concert venue. Now I don’t believe that someone was able to shoot though the windows without breaking them, but it seems like reflection wouldn’t be out of the question. If it is a reflection then it is either from across the street, or it is a double reflection from the stories up above. I have more questions than answers.
Donald must know the truth about what’s going on. We elected him so that We The People would have an insider in our own gubmint. I sincerely hope that he acts upon our best interests in this tangled web of deceit that we are all witnessing.
When did Marilou Danley arrive in the Philippines? Did she fly out of Vegas on the 1st?
It’s been reported that 100 grand was wired to her in the Philippines from Paddock. Either she helped him and flew out before the attack, or she’s being played for a patsy by someone else using her name or I.D.
So much of this stinks.
I still think this is a big red-flag designed to ban the 2nd Amendment by the usual suspects. Think about this for a second: who have we heard very little of recently? Deliberately laying under the radar.
This is only the BEGINNING. Next, it’ll be another conservative venue like a NASCAR race, and it won’t be 58 dead and 500 injured.
I have little faith in the “official” line.
I have tried not to jump to conclusions about this incident. I assume the MSM reports will be unreliable at best, and probably slanted on purpose. Mainstream reporting of Waco, Sandy Hook, Bin Laden and 9/11 etc prompt caution.
Plenty of holes in the timeline as reported- unexplained cellphone charger. Room service receipts. Valet records.
Lots of idle speculation as to motive, planning and support. Security “experts” interviewed have spouted thinly-veiled proposals for stricter gun control.
In the interest of “informing” the public about bumpfire stocks, at least one outlet displayed a picture of a extra-scary M4 carbine, complete w/ grenade launcher, suppressor and a high capacity magazine.(No bumpfire stock.) Cankles immediately blamed the NRA.
It has been reported that the shooter recorded himself during the attack.
Taxi driver’s vid with “muzzle flash” look like strobe/reflections to me- color is wrong.
The other vid linked by B_B at iotw was pretty convincing- makes a good argument for multiple shooters. It also addresses speculation about echoes.
Less convincing was the theory that head shots resulted from aimed fire.
Sufficient full auto fire into a densely packed area could easily account for those hits, even at long range by an amateur gunner.
A second shooter in a closer location suggests a much more complicated operation than a single deranged gunman as we have been led to believe.
If so, the implications are very disturbing.
Impossible to tell from vids I have seen where shooter(s) were located.
I have seen conflicting reports on the number and type of guns found in the hotel suite- as many as 23, including a *gasp!* pistol. Also the usual claptrap about an arsenal of weapons, a stockpile of ammunition and a quantity of explosives (tannerite) recovered from his home.
Full auto 5.56 from the 32nd floor? Maybe, but bumpfire? or suppressed? Worthless from the hotel suite.
It is certainly possible to achieve hits at that range w/ 5.56 but it seems a poor choice.
I’m no expert but I wouldn’t consider anything less than a beltfed MG for a job like this.
…Now, for a second gunner at closer range, a suppressed carbine would make sense. After all, that’s what it is made for.
But was there a second gunner? Any spent brass found at another location?
I’ll say this: I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near that killing ground with a rookie machinegunner banging away from that distance.
Doesn’t seem like a one man operation. Who provided support? NFA/Title II weapons are expensive and rather difficult to obtain legally. It would be interesting to trace any such firearms used.
By now, plenty of projectiles must have been collected. I have seen no mention of this evidence. Do they all match weapons recovered in the hotel room? If not, we’ve got a whole new ballgame…
I doubt an isis connection. Sure, they would be willing to take advantage of this, as a free publicity coup. Does isis also claim the other shooter (if any?)
A plausible digital trail would serve as a smokescreen for a double-secret covert op. Scary if true.
He’s conveniently silenced forever. Dead men tell no tales…
