On this day, 15 years ago.                Leonid Rashal (very well known doctor) in Beslan, Sept 1st/2nd.      Ruslan Aushe

From David M. Fortier   According to initial reports the gunman drove to the store across from the church and exited his vehicle. He was dressed in all black, with face mask and wearing a ba

Well, we know one thing, if this guy had even thought about voting for Trump it would be the only goddamn thing on the news.

I'm shocked and amazed at how this story just went away. It almost makes me want to believe the conspiracy theory that this shooting has been ignored because corporate interests in Las Vegas have a monetary interest in not reminding folks that this occurred which might make them choose to not visit Sin City.

 

Almost.

 

Almost.

 

Speaking of which, I haven't seen too many commercials for "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" as of late...

At least this means there's virtually no chance any stupid legislation will go through.


Sucks for justice, though.

I was going to bring it up but I didn't want to jinx it...

 

So it seems bump stock and any other gun grabbing ideas are dead in the water as we speak? At least that's what I gathered second-hand from all the YouTube slap fighting between our favorite gun channels.

As far as I can tell, they are dead in the water, as I predicted.

Well good.

 

Back to the hard drive, the Las Vegas daily rag quotes one of the Feds as stating that it was removed AFTER the shooter opened fire.

After?

 

So in between setting up surveillance cameras, busting out windows, firing two hundred rounds at an illegal alien security guard, and pumping thousands of rounds into a crowd, he has time to somehow dispose of his hard drive, while still planning to make a get away in his Tannerite laden car, before saying "fuck it" and blowing his brains out with a revolver.

 

...

 

If he removed it AFTER shooting, where the hell did it go? Did he Chuck it out the window? Because the shooter didn't leave the room, right?

 

Edit: I guess the AP did the story.

A pretty good inside baseball view from the Las Vegas Journal about the information flow from the Clark County Sheriff Department and how it differs today from the free and easy information that was given in the first days after the murders.

 

https://www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/authorities-put-brakes-on-information-flow-in-las-vegas-shooting/

 

As I stated at the time, it was fairly remarkable how forthright the Sheriff's department was in giving opinions and info which isn't very usual if you are a news guy covering such an event.

 

Some curious things that are missing so far is - so far as I know - there has been no release of any surveillance footage  or closed circuit TV of the shooter, which there must be hours of going into and out of the casino and surrounding businesses.

 

Another common news item that hasn't been released - so far as I know - is the evidence line-up featuring the guns, ammo, magazines, and explosives. This is a common stunt that big metro police departments do, particularly in a crime featuring multiple "high-powered, automatic weapons" and provides a nice photo shoot. It also allows gun nerds to be able to strut around and name the various models and calibers on gun forums. The only glimpse we've seen of the weapons have been those leaked photos, a handful of evil black rifles and a revolver which he used to blow his addled brains out.

 

This is pretty unusual after nearly a month. Are the guns somehow tied to an ongoing investigation with accomplices that the shooter had? Is there an effort to dampen the news story and any potential fallout of evil black rifles being used in a crime? It's just damned odd.

“He jumped out of the truck with a pellet gun, yelled, ‘Allahu Akbar,’ and the First Precinct lit him up,” a law enforcement official said, referring to a police officer who had been on post nearby and whom the authorities credited with saving lives.

Wasn't there a TV ad about NO STEP ON SNAKE rednecks and their F250s running down minority children?

Time to blame the Latino whatstheirfuck group in Virginia for inspiring this attack with that ad...
