Amen. This shit pisses me off so much. Nazis shouldn't be given an inch. This road has been traveled before and we know where it leads. It's probably the worst aspect of Trump, the normalization of this kind of garbage. Next time it will be someone with a brain taking advantage of it, and then we're well and truly fucked.

Yeah, you testify, compadre. :ranton:

I agree, the rot is once again advancing in the culture. Eastern Europe is a breeding ground for that kind of shit these days, up to and including governments.

That's the bottom line of this event to me. Even here, dozens of people have expressed their perfect contentment with convicting Paddock of the worst mass shooting in the history of the USA based on nothing but a negative media portrayal of his old, white, male privilege.

The fact that he had no means or motive whatsoever to commit this crime and that no evidence has been presented that he pulled a single trigger that night doesn't seem to affect the reigning sentiment that "I wouldn't put it past that sleaze to do this for some as yet unknown reason."

We now live in a bizarro world where people imagine every individual around them, from a 90 lb new mother

The authorities are now free say that any one of us, no matter how formerly meek and mild mannered, turned into Rambo overnight without any warning, and we are more than happy to accept any patsy they finger, even in the complete absence of both evidence and narrative.

Yep. :clapping:

It's a bizarro world, but then again, it always was. But people's gullibility might be again reaching Medieval levels...

Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock's Girlfriend Marilou Danley Lives In Lavish LA Home
Woman questioned & cleared in his mass crime says she's found 'peace' 2 years later.
September 29, 2019 @ 11:03AM

Nearly two years after Stephen Paddock committed the worst mass shooting in modern American history in Las Vegas, and then killed himself, his girlfriend Marilou Danley reportedly lives in a lavish Los Angeles home. As the Daily Mail Opens a New Window. has reported via Australia’s The Courier Mail Opens a New Window. , Danley recently told a journalist twice that she’s “in peace right now” in her life. Then she quietly got into an SUV driven by her daughter and headed back to her home, which is worth $3.4 million in Australia money, or about $2.29 million in U.S. dollars.

According to the publications, the luxury house is in an exclusive Los Angeles neighborhood and is owned by her daughter and son-in-law. Dual-Australian citizen Danley dated Paddock, 64, for four years before he opened fire on more than 20,000 country music fans from his hotel suite in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017. The horrifying crime ended with 58 people dead and 851 injured. Paddock killed himself in his hotel room by shooting himself. Surviving victims and families of the deceased will mark the sad anniversary this Tuesday. Many questions still remain about the shooting and haters don’t accept the official conclusions.

Danley, who had moved from Australia to Nevada after the death of her first husband, was visiting family in the Philippines when Paddock attacked the country music festival from the Mandalay Bay. He had allegedly purchased a plane ticket and given her $150,000 as a gift in the weeks prior to the shooting Opens a New Window. . Former Reno casino worker Danley returned to the U.S. after the shooting and cooperated fully with investigators. She told them that Paddock had complained that he was sick and that doctors told him he had a “chemical imbalance” and could not cure him.

Danley claimed their relationship was on its last legs at the time of his heinous crime. She saidhe’d lost interest in sex Opens a New Window. and was “unable to perform.” However, he’d reportedly slept with prostitutes, as a source told RadarOnline.com. The insider said he made Danley “jittery” and was very “condescending” to her before the massacre Opens a New Window. .

The new report said Danley now regularly attends Sunday service at a local Catholic church and gets coffee at an L.A. Starbucks cafe. Danley previously went to the Starbucks inside the Virgin River Casino in Mesquite with her beau, where a store worker reportedly said, “He would glare down at her and say, ‘I’m paying for your drink, just like I’m paying for you.’ ”

Once a “person of interest” in the case, authorities quickly cleared Danley. She has said, “I knew Stephen Paddock as a kind, caring, quiet man.” “It never occurred to me in any way whatsoever that he was planning violence against anyone. He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something horrible Opens a New Window. like this was going to happen.” The FBI has said compulsive gambler Paddock had no known motive to kill.

He didn’t leave a suicide note. “It was all about doing the maximum amount of damage and him obtaining some form of infamy,” Aaron Rouse, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Las Vegas office, said. An FBI report also concluded that Paddock’s “decision to murder people while they were being entertained was consistent with his personality.” While some question the findings, it is believed he was as an aloof narcissist, not interested in politics or religion, who often developed heavy obsessions with any hobby he took up before quickly losing interest and dropping it entirely.

Now his girlfriend is moving on with the help of her family.

Why do you keep posting this far-right twaddle? Laura "Project Veritas" Loomer is about as far away from the concept of "reliable" it's possible to get. There's a reason she has been banned from half the internet. Having James Corsi on as a regular guest doesn't exactly inspire confidence either.

I might as well have my final say on this matter. I think the security guard murdered Paddock and carried out the mass murderous attack. He claimed to have been shot by what he thought was a pellet gun, but I contend that he jabbed his leg with a bic type of ballpoint pen to feign a gunshot wound. Once thought of as a victim, it's difficult to imagine him as anything other. Why the attack took place is another matter, and one in which there are just too many variables for me to pin down a solid rationale for the attack. Arms dealing gone bad either randomly or purposely, or perhaps something far more nefarious. Did anyone see evidence of some alleged 200 shots fired into the hallway? I haven't. And Paddock wasn't using .22cal ammo, but .223cal: Size does matter.

Yeah. That is interesting. I've never bought the "official" story myself. But to target a shit ton of your rightwing comrades with an affinity for country music? Had to be something else.

And how it has dropped off the map is another question I have. Why? How can such a massacre in a worldwide vacation zone lose its importance? Maybe we just want to forget but as per wiki

He killed 58 people and wounded 422, with the ensuing panic bringing the injury total to 851


That is a lot of people and families and friends affected. But it is but a blip. Then there is the sadness and unrelenting terror.

Here is a 187 pdf (8/3/18) of a report prepared by the Metropolitan Las Vegas Police Department entitled, "LVMPD Criminal Investigative Report of the 1 October Mass Casualty Shooting".

I have read the Table of Contents and the Executive Summary. Lots here. Many interviews and many unique photos.

Another death from the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

Woman injured in Las Vegas shooting dies two years later, coroner says

November 19. 2019

More than two years after a shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas left more than 50 people dead, a woman who was paralyzed in the shooting has died, a coroner said.

Kimberly Gervais, 57, was shot and suffered a spinal injury in the October 1, 2017, shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas during which 58 other people were killed and hundreds were wounded in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

The San Bernardino County coroner in California said the Mira Loma woman had been recovering at a nursing facility in Redlands. On Friday, she was brought into a local hospital and pronounced dead, the coroner said.

An autopsy will be performed to determine a cause of death, the coroner said.

Her sister, Dena Sarvela, said the stress from Gervais' injuries became too much for her body to handle.

“She hurt. Even though she was paralyzed from the neck up, she could feel all the pain,” Sarvela told KPTV in Vancouver, Washington, where she lives.

Clark County, Nevada, tweeted a message of support to Gervais' family and friends Monday.

"Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Kim Gervais," the tweet read. "For the past two years, she had battled the physical and psychological toll of the Las Vegas shooting."

Sarvela said her sister went to the Las Vegas music festival with two friends. One survived while the other she saw die, Sarvela told KPTV.

Sarvela described the challenge of the two years since the shooting and said Gervais wasn't able to return to California for almost a year.

"She lost her zest for life because of it, because of the shooting, because of her injuries that she sustained. It was hard to be that same person, that we all know and love," Sarvela told the TV station.

Gervais was a mother of two who raised her daughters after her husband died in 2000, Sarvela told KPTV. She said her sister was ready to retire soon, too.

"She is, was, she still is … she'll never leave my heart, ever."
