While we attempt to process the unfathomable carnage committed by Stephen Paddock on Las Vegas, the giant question is WHY?
Why would a 64-year-old former accountant with no military background plan and execute a highly detailed and effective ambush attack on his fellow Americans?
Was he a degenerate gambler who lost everything? Maybe, but he had enough liquid cash to send 100 grand to his girlfriend, and as far as we know, none of his properties were in foreclosure. He’d also been collecting an awful lot of firearms and ammunition for a pretty long time.
Did he just “snap?” Well, let’s just say no one so far who’s just “gone postal” has ever gone to such great lengths to plan and prepare.
Was he radicalized by his girlfriend, who just happened to slip town at the most opportune moment?
There are huge questions still to be answered, but there may be more the police and investigators know than they’re revealing. However…
Did he leave a note? Or just a to-do list?
Leaked photos of Paddock’s hotel room show an intriguing detail: a note on the dresser.
Per the Daily Star, Images have leaked showing Paddock lying dead on the hotel room floor with blood pouring from his mouth.
The alleged gunman appears to be wearing a brown shirt, black slacks, loafers and a pair of gloves.
Chillingly, he appears to have left some kind of note on the side table.
Graphic images show the close-up of the killer’s face.
His body lies splayed, with a revolver lying above him also stained with blood.
Other angles show a bipod mounted rifle at his feet.
Another weapon lies beneath his legs, and his body is surrounded with brass shell casings.
Pictures show a pile of magazines neatly stacked next to a column in the bedroom.
Weapons are scattered madly throughout the room, propped up against chairs and lying on sofa cushions.
And then there’s that note…
You know, Rush Limbaugh brought up an interesting point. After months and months, without a shred of evidence, the left is STILL pushing the narrative that President Trump colluded with the Russians. Yet within just a day, authorities and the FBI quickly poured cold water on ISIS’ claim that Paddock was one of their warriors. And this was BEFORE they’d checked out the guy’s hard drives.
What do they know that we don’t?
