Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 03, 2018

The man who committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history when he opened fire from his Las Vegas high-rise hotel room had no clear motive, Las Vegas police said as they announced Friday that they had concluded their 10-month investigation. A 187-page report examining the Oct. 1 attack on a country music festival determined that the gunman ... acted alone. ... Fifty-eight people died in the attack, and the report said that 887 people sustained documented injuries.

Well he was white so clearly his motive wasn't "terrorism."

He had a bump stock he felt was under-utilized.

It probably wasn't too much different from Don Jr.s need to kill endangered species. Some people just get a thrill from killing animals or humans. They are sick.

I found it interesting that they only showed the public videos from public areas around the lobby and similar. I'd like to see the hall footage where the guy supposedly set up his own camera and the security guard was supposed to be when the bullets were said to be coming through the interior wall.

We're not getting the whole story and it doesn't make sense to withhold information when the presumed shooter is dead.

Unless it's part of pending lawsuits.

I'm a person who rejected the findings of the 9-11 Commission and the Warren Commission but I don't think a new conspiracy theory about this is helpful to anyone nor is it really indicated. I believe the police are giving us the truth but they just don't have any way to know what was in the mind of that murderer. Further, if they know about some political reason for this it is probably best that it not be released and celebrated by some America hating group. I've always thought that talking about Al Quaeda being responsible for 9-11 empowered Al Quaeda, we should have only referred to them as terrorists with no name. I feel the same way about mass shooters. Let them die anonymously, forgotten, not famours. Just anonymous losers.

Suadi royal family owns the two upper floors of mandalay bay.

Saudi bad royals/guys back at home locked shortly afterwards. Saudi regime officials change. One was even killed in a chopper.

Look it up....or not. I'll go find a link for yous

Good thing since they were the fools that colluded with hillary and obama to greatly expand, fund, and arm ISIS (And probably the Ukrainian nazis too)

I originally though the guy was an arms dealer that used gambling to launder his profits. I mean, he had 7,000 rounds of ammo in his room, and he was using bump stocks. Nobody uses bump stocks, they totally ruin the accuracy of your rifle. But for his purposes....

The article makes it sound like he just snapped one day and decided to start hoarding a huge amount of firepower and come up with a master plan. No motive, no note? Odd, but possible.

Shooter's brother said he was an atheist with no political affiliation.

best bet is that he was a world-class weirdo Who had enough with losing bets.

If that was the case, he would have shot up the cacino. He killed a bunch of country/western fans.

#15 I dunno. We have to wait on the FBI personality profile thingy to come out next year. For instance, look at the one they did on Klebold and that other dork at Columubine - it's on wiki, and it pretty much does explain everything.

I mean, you absolutely must leave trace evidence. For instance, if I where to go a rampage, the police would notice that thousands of dollars where spent the most authentic clown costume possible, but the squeaky nose was custom. Also the bill for the giant mallet, and the motorized pogo stick I used to chase my victims down on. Because when you dial 911 for that, the police aren't going to take you seriously at first, so my slaughter could go on for quite awhile. Also, instead of having "The Catcher in the Rye" as the only book in my collection, I would go with the Klingon dictionary. Everything else in my book cabinet goes into the landfill the day before.

You have to plan these things. And remember, it's not quantity it's quality.

Knowing the "why" is sometimes helpful in preventing the same sort of thing from happening again. But I don't expect you to be able to grasp that with your Neanderthal mind.

Dude was worth like $5 to $7 million or something. If he was losing big cash, he was losing it to launder his illegal profits. Gambling really has only an average loss rate of about 30%, so he actually got off rather well.

Once someone brings up "Q" as a source, they've lost the argument.
Might as well said Fox News or Infowars was the source.

The cops/government are hiding a ton of info on this. Las Vegas and especially casinos in Vegas are some of the most surveilled areas on this planet. Surely there is footage of this guy setting this up.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were "Q" and or the Russian connections involved.

I'm sure he and his friends in all of their mothers basements have quite the online militia on that game.

19 helium...you underestimate the awesome abilities of Le Bump stock combined with a pogo stick. The clown costume with custom sqeaking and squonking along to the cycling spring compressions is just a side benefit albeit a nice one though.

Are you a moron? You don't snipe with a bump stock or even shoot it with any accuracy. A semi-auto would be much more effective. Spray and pray usualy doesn't kill very many people. If it did they would not make machin guns so heavy and have stands.

Air Traffic Control Tapes "ACTIVE SHOOTERS ON RUNWAY" during Las Vegas shooting! 2:19

THREE ROOFTOP SHOOTERS

Like I've stated before, these operations seem to be committed by imitation police from inside of our police forces. DHS has been weaponizing them across the nation, hording bullets, guns and high tech gear and vehicles.

It does when you're firing at the closing performance of a music festival with 22,000 attendees. But you're so ------- stupid that it's no surprise you wouldn't know that.
