When Stephen Paddock set off his armed attack from the Mandalay Bay on October 1, 2017, he immediately destroyed the lives of nearly 500 people and indirectly, all the thousands who love the victims. He killed 58 innocent people who merely wanted to enjoy a country music concert in Las Vegas, Nevada.
All these months later, we know very little about what motivated Paddock and what actually happened in that hotel prior to the horrific event. Law enforcement tells us there won’t be a final report for a year.
This is the worst mass shooting in American history and the only investigation of any import comes from a twitter reporter, not the press. Where is the U.S. media?
People are now commenting on “the latest news” as if we didn’t have this information already.
The LasVegas Review Journal reported that the hotel staff had at least 10 “normal” interactions with Paddock, including 2 on the day of the shooting, and saw no need for a ‘welfare check’ Welfare checks are performed when the ‘do not disturb’ sign is up for two days. It allows them to go into the room up to 4 times a day. Here’s the latest from the Journal reporting it as January 5th news although we knew about it 3 months ago:
Updated January 5, 2018 – 6:58 pm
Mandalay Bay hotel staff had more than 10 interactions with Stephen Paddock in the days leading up to his Oct. 1 massacre of 58 people on the Strip, including two on the day of the shooting, MGM Resorts International said Friday.
“Mandalay Bay staff, room service and housekeeping had contact with Paddock or entered his suite more than 10 times over the course of his stay, including the three days leading up to October 1,” an MGM Resorts spokesperson said in an email.
They are not only reporting old news as if it were new news, they might be reporting it incorrectly.
Controversial, citizen journalist Laura Loomer shared this information three months ago with more detailed information. She has receipts to show the interactions.
This story is:
1. Not breaking news
2. Not properly explained
How did they get the # 10?
I have @MandalayBay receipts that prove 1 interaction is from room service & 9 of the other interactions are from dropping his car off/retrieving it from valet.
3 month old news. https://t.co/SmdJdkMX6u
