What do we really know?
Unless we're unlucky enough to know someone who was there we don't know a damned thing that wasn't supplied to us by a government agency or a news agency that was fed by the same government agents
Given that we know governments are usually lying we can assume that anything we're being told already is false. History proves this generalization out.
I'm quite alright with the idea that there are "lone wolves" and people crazy enough to pull off this horror but doesn't this thing look and smell awfully familiar?
Speaking of knowing people who were there - my sister in law and brother in law were there, at the Mandalay, but returned home to Detroit about an hour before the shooting happened. Sister in law is reasonably sure that the photographs of the alleged shooter are of a drunken asshole who targeted them on the street with a video cam buggering them about some nonsense and demanding to take their pictures. This, of course, a few hours before the shooting. Brother in law says he thinks it's possible it was the same man but not sure enough to say it's a certainty. Doesn't this sound like Oswald being spotted at the Mexican embassy before shooting JFK? Not that it makes one bit of sense as part of the crime but the drawing attention to himself in a most public way and putting himself near the scene of the crime just before it happened seems a little too cute.
And what is the thinking of these assholes who need to shoot as many people as they can before conveniently shooting themselves. That does not make sense. If they want to be dead they can arrange that just fine without needing to shoot others. What purpose does it serve the shooter to shoot others? Sure, it takes a madman to do madness but it just doesn't smell right. It doesn't smell right every time these things happen. If the shooter had issues with someone, some entity, you'd think he'd direct his rage at them, not a hapless and random crowd of drunken country music lovers. Am I right?
Again, what we really know is mostly nothing and what we've heard has been passed through all the usual filters. In another three days this narrative will have been written and nothing will change in this narrative but inconsequential details that probably couldn't be proven or disproven since every bit of "evidence" will have been locked down by the feds and NOT available to you and me.
This movie looks all too familiar.....
