There are still a lot of serious questions about just what happened during the massacre in Las Vegas this year and some startling questions have come out that the media and the government both seem to be ignoring.
Not to sound like a black helicopter conspiracy theorist, but we still have a ton of completely unanswered questions about murderer Stephen Paddock and the mass shooting he perpetrated in Las Vegas in October.
The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh recently revisited this mass murder and asked why discussion and reporting on Paddock’s terrorist act has completely stopped. Walsh has some vexing questions about the incident, including:
- Why did the timeline of the shooting change three times?
- Why isn’t there any video footage of Paddock in Las Vegas?
- Why don’t we know exactly how many of the victims were injured?
- Why did it take so long for the police to admit that they fired into Paddock’s hotel room?
- Why did police shoot into the room if the room was quiet and Paddock was already dead as reports state?
Worse, Walsh wants to know why no one seems to be asking these questions any more?
For instance, Walsh says that we don’t really have all the facts on the injuries and deaths.
I actually don’t know how many people were shot. They tell us 527 people were injured, along with the 58 killed, but were all of those injuries from gunshots? Did the guy actually physically shoot 585 human beings? Or were some of the injuries from people getting knocked over and trampled in the melee? I would imagine the latter must be the case, but I don’t know. It’s been two months and we still don’t even know how many people Paddock shot. Maybe that number is available somewhere but I couldn’t find it. How is that possible? How could it be two months after the worst mass shooting in American history and we still don’t have a precise and well-publicized casualty count?
Walsh also notes that there are so many unanswered questions that it is hard to understand why the story has just dropped off the face of the media…
Why did [Paddock] do it? We were told it wasn’t terrorism, even though ISIS claimed credit. Okay, then what was it? Was he crazy? But then how did a crazy person manage to orchestrate something like this? And why hasn’t a single person from Paddock’s personal life come forward and called him crazy? All we heard was that Paddock was a normal, rational guy. Dylann Roof was obviously disturbed. Adam Lanza had clear mental issues. James Holmes is a nutcase. The Orlando killer was a terrorist. Every single one of these guys fits into one of two categories: terrorist or lunatic. We’re told Stephen Paddock was neither of those things. What was he? Why did he do it? And why isn’t the media asking why he did it
Then there is Walsh’s question on what the heck the police were doing as Paddock was purportedly shooting away at the concert goers below his hotel room.
POLICE DIDN’T FINALLY ENTER THE HOTEL ROOM UNTIL AN HOUR AFTER THE SHOOTING STOPPED. WHAT TOOK THEM SO LONG? WHERE WERE THEY? IN ONE OF THE LAST PRESS CONFERENCES ABOUT THE SHOOTING, THE LAS VEGAS SHERIFF CONFIRMED THAT THE POLICE WERE IN THE HOTEL WHEN THE SHOOTING STARTED. IT TOOK THEM OVER AN HOUR TO GET UPSTAIRS? OR WERE THEY JUST WAITING BY THE DOOR AS PADDOCK EXECUTED 58 PEOPLE?
AND WHY DID IT TAKE THEM A MONTH TO DISCLOSE THAT AN OFFICER DID DISCHARGE HIS WEAPON INSIDE PADDOCK’S ROOM? THEY INSISTED FOR WEEKS THAT NO OFFICER FIRED A SHOT. DID THEY REALLY NOT KNOW? OR WERE THEY WITHHOLDING THE INFORMATION? WHY? AND WHY WAS A SHOT FIRED IF PADDOCK WAS ALLEGEDLY ALREADY DEAD WHEN THEY ENTERED?
Walsh also asks why Paddock wired $100,000 to the Philippines before opening fire and where did that money go? He goes on to wonder where that missing computer hard drive is and what is the deal with the “escape plan” police say Paddock had? Did Paddock expect help to make his get away? If so, who was his conspirator?
And what of the fact that we have no video in this age of video ubiquity?
And here’s a big one: Why haven’t we seen any video footage of Stephen Paddock whatsoever? Paddock carried out his attack in one of the most monitored cities in the world. You can scarcely find a nook or cranny of Las Vegas that isn’t under video surveillance. Yet not even one second of Paddock video has leaked? No video of him carrying the gun-laden bags into the hotel? No video of him checking in? No video of whatever went down between Paddock and Campos? Not even any video of Paddock at one of the many casinos he frequented? We’re told Paddock spent a lot of time in Vegas. There must be literally hundreds of hours of footage of him spread out between dozens of hotels and casinos. None of it has leaked? All of it was confiscated immediately?
“None of this makes any sense,” Walsh says as we wrapped up his article. “And maybe it never will make sense, because nobody is paying attention anymore.”
Indeed. Where are the media exposes? Why have we allowed the government (both state and federal) to dummy up and let this all just go away without answers?
