    Default Las Vegas Terrorist Attack By White Christian

    Stephen Paddock: Las Vegas gunman identified as 64-year-old white male



    'He's not an avid gun guy at all,' says suspect's brother

    The suspected gunman in the mass shooting at a music festival in Las Vegas has been named by police as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.

    At least 58 people were killed and more than 515 injured at the Route 91 country music event near the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

    It is the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history, with the death toll surpassing the 49 killed at a nightclub in Orlando in June 2016.

    Witnesses described seeing flashes of light high up in the tower of the hotel and a sound "like firecrackers" as "clip after clip" was unloaded into the 22,000-strong crowd.

    Paddock, a grandfather from Mesquite, Nevada, is believed to have been firing down at concert-goers from the 32nd floor.

    A Swat team used a controlled explosion to enter the hotel room, where Paddock was found dead, according to a police statement.

    Officials believe Paddock killed himself before the officers entered.

    At least 10 guns were recovered from the room, where Paddock had been staying since Thursday.

    Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said police had found nothing to suggest a motive for the attack.

    When asked during a news conference why the police were not treating the incident as an act of terrorism, he said: "We have to establish what his motivation is first.

    "There are motivating factors associated with terrorism other than a distraught person just intending to cause mass casualty. Before we label with that it will be a matter of process."

    Isis later claimed responsibility for the massacre, saying the shooter was "a soldier of the Islamic State" who answered "calls to target coalition countries".

    A statement published by the group's Amaq propaganda agency – which cannot be independently verified – claimed he “converted to Islam several months ago”.

    The wording of the release is similar to other attacks believed to have been inspired, rather than directed, by Isis.

    Special Agent Aaron Rouse of the FBI responded to the Isis statement saying: "As this event unfolds to this point we have determined no connection with an international terrorist group."

    Records show Paddock, who lived in a three-year-old, $396,000 (£297,554) two-bedroom home in a small retirement and golf community in Mesquite, 80 miles north east of Las Vegas near the Arizona state border.

    Local media said he had also previously lived in Reno, Nevada, California and Florida.

    The suspect's brother, Eric Paddock, said the family was stunned that the 64-year-old was the suspected gunman.

    “He was my brother and it’s like an asteroid fell out of the sky,” he told CNN.

    In an interview with CBS he said his brother had “no religious affiliation, no political affiliation, he just hung out”.

    He added: “He’s not an avid gun guy at all. The fact that he had those kind of weapons is just — where the hell did he get automatic weapons? He has no military background or anything like that.

    "He’s just a guy who lived in a house in Mesquite, drove down and gambled in Las Vegas. He did stuff. Ate burritos.”

    Las Vegas Police Department confirmed that two off-duty police officers were among those killed.

    At least two on-duty officers were also injured. One was in a stable condition after surgery and another sustained minor injuries.

    Shortly after the attack, police launched a public manhunt for a 62-year-old female companion of the shooter called Marilou Danley. They later located and questioned her, but said she was no longer a person of interest.

    US President Donald Trump responded to the massacre by saying the attack was an “act of pure evil”. He did not mention the issue of gun control.

    “Our unity cannot be shattered by evil," he said. "Our bonds cannot be broken by violence. It is our love that defines us today, and always will forever.”

    He added: “In times such as these, I know we are searching for some kind of meaning, some kind of light in the darkness. The answers do not come easy.”

    Hillary Clinton launched a scathing attack on the National Rifle Association in response to the mass shooting.

    In addition to demanding the right to bear arms the NRA has pushed for scrapping current restrictions that make it more difficult to but silencers for guns.

    “The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots,” Ms Clinton said. “Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.”

    She added: “Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again.”

    Nevada state law defines Las Vegas mass shooting as an act of terrorism

    But police say they are 'not at this point' treating incident as terror

    Police investigating the mass shooting of concert-goers at a music festival in Las Vegas have said they are not treating the incident as an act of terrorism.

    But Nevada law suggests the Sunday night massacre of at least 50 people can be defined as such.

    The state's statute says an “act of terrorism means any act that involves the use or attempted use of sabotage, coercion or violence which is intended to cause great bodily harm or death to the general population”.

    However, police, who are early on in their investigation of the shooting that also left at least 200 injured, said it was too early to label the incident as terrorism.

    Responding to questions about whether the killing was being treated as terror-related, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said: “No not at this point, we believe it is a local individual, he resides here locally.

    “We don’t know what his belief system was at this time.”

    Nevada state law separately defines a terrorist as "a person who intentionally commits, causes, aids, furthers or conceals an act of terrorism or attempts to commit, cause, aid, further or conceal an act of terrorism".

    The incident unfolded late on Sunday when a gunman, named as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, fired hundreds of rounds from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino.

    The bullets rained down on an outdoor country music festival, with concert-goers reporting hearing what they described as automatic gun fire.

    Thousands fled as bursts of gunfire could be heard for more than five minutes.

    White American men are a bigger domestic terrorist threat than Muslim foreigners



    Since Trump took office, more Americans have been killed by white American men with no connection to Islam than by Muslim terrorists or foreigners.

    When President Donald Trump signed his since-revised executive order banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, he claimed it was to protect Americans from “radical Islamic terrorists.”

    “We don’t want ‘em here,” Trump told reporters at the Pentagon, where he signed the order in January.

    But in the eight months since Trump took office, more Americans have been killed in attacks by white American men with no connection to Islam than by Muslim terrorists or foreigners.

    Radical Islamic terrorists inspired or directed by groups like ISIS and al-Qaeda do pose a clear threat to the US. There is no question about that. Before last night’s deadly shooting in Las Vegas, the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history occurred in June 2016 when an ISIS-inspired man opened fire in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 people and wounding 53.

    And ISIS-linked militants have killed or injured dozens of people in countries like England, France, and Canada so far this year, including two women killed in a stabbing attack in Marseille, France, and several people injured in a car-ramming attack in Edmonton, Canada, just this weekend.

    But here at home, the bigger threat has come from a very different kind of attacker, one with no ties to religion generally or Islamist extremism specifically.

    Here are just a few of the attacks that have occurred in 2017:


    • Sunday night, a 64-year-old white man from Nevada opened fire on a crowd of more than 22,000 people at a country music festival in Las Vegas, killing more than 50 and wounding more than 200.
    • In August, a 20-year-old white Nazi sympathizer from Ohio sped his car into a crowd of anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing a woman and injuring at least 19 others.
    • In June, a 66-year-old white man from Illinois shot at Republican Congress members during an early morning baseball practice, severely wounding several people including Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the House of Representatives Majority Whip.
    • In March 2017, a 28-year-old white man from Baltimore traveled to New York City with the explicit aim of killing black men. He stabbed 66-year-old Timothy Caughman to death and was charged with terrorism by New York state authorities.
    • In May, a 35-year-old white man from Oregon named Jeremy Joseph Christian began harassing Muslim teenagers on a train in Portland, telling them “We need Americans here!” Two men interceded; Christian then stabbed and killed them both.


    In fact, between 2001 and 2015, more Americans were killed by homegrown right-wing extremists than by Islamist terrorists, according to a study by New America, a nonpartisan think tank in Washington, DC.

    A June 2017 study by Reveal and the Center for Investigative Reporting found a similar pattern:

    These Las Vegas Hoaxes Being Shared Online Aren't Real — Here's What To Watch Out For


    video: https://www.facebook.com/iKhabr/vide...8200619296278/

    Late Sunday night, a mass shooting at a music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, left 50 dead and more than 200 wounded. As word of the violence spread throughout the night, some have taken advantage of the chaos to post Las Vegas shooting hoaxes — particularly misinformation about the identities of victims and the shooter. According to BuzzFeed, which published a running list of these hoaxes Monday morning, these "reports" began circulating on Twitter mere minutes after the news broke online. Unfortunately, the nature of the internet makes it difficult to tell truth from fiction at times, and some trolls have taken advantage of that.

    On Monday morning, many people took to social media to express their condolences for the victims, but others chose to spread untruths. One common hoax was tweeting a picture of comedian Sam Hyde, claiming he was the shooter.



    One variation on the hoax declares that his name is Samir al-Hajeed or Samir al-Hajib, and he converted to Islam. As some have pointed out, these names are simply variations on Sam Hyde.

    However, Las Vegas police have identified the suspected shooter, and he was certainly not the founder of the internet sketch group Million Dollar Extreme. In fact, this isn't the first time Hyde has been identified as the gunman in a mass shooting. In the last few years, "Sam Hyde is the shooter" has become a meme, and his photograph has been circulated after the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, the 2017 London terror attacks, and more. Basically, if you see any photograph of Hyde linked to mass violence, take it with a grain of salt.

    Crowds On Demand Recruited Crisis Actors for Las Vegas Event

    A California based company called Crowds on Demand placed an advert on Craigslist back in August for crisis actors in the Las Vegas area.Crowds on Demand website:
    Your home for Protests, Rallies, Audiences, PR Stunts, and Celebrity Events.Today, the Craigslist advert is gone:
    However, thanks to vigilant net users, we have a screen capture of the advert, placed in Mid August:Quite a few people had taken note of this advert, such as this AR-15 forum user:https://www.ar15.com/forums/general/Do-a-Search-All-Craig-s-List-for-Crowds-On-Demand-and—-/5-2022917/It had even been picked up by a Las Vegas new site:http://360daily.net/crowds-on-demand...egas-protests/




    Crowds on Demand had also placed the same advert on Backstage.com, and as of today, it is still online:https://www.backstage.com/casting/cr...demand-178842/Note the wording – “attending a show/concert”:Crowd Member (Chorus / Ensemble): Males & Females, 21+
    your role might involve anything from attending a show/concert to participating in a corporate PR stunt; the number one attribute needed is enthusiasm/energy.
    So is it just a coincidence that 6 weeks before the La Vegas shooting farce, we have a notorious company known for hiring crisis actors placing adverts to recruit people as crisis actors for an unspecified event in Las Vegas?

    Las Vegas Shooting Witness Who Identified Multiple Shooters, Found Dead

    Kymberley Suchomel was a key witness who had identified multiple shooters during Las Vegas attack.

    A key witness in the Las Vegas shooting attack, who identified multiple shooters, has been found dead at her home.

    28-year-old Kymberley Suchomel managed to escape the massacre, at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, uninjured but made a public statement describing the attacks and how they were carried out by multiple gunmen that were firing weapons into the crowd.

    Her post on Facebook quickly went viral as it confirmed what many had already suspected: The mainstream media “official” narrative that Stephen Paddock was a “lone wolf” gunman was false.

    Kymberley gave a detailed account of her horrific experience a few days after the event as she said she had struggled to think of the words to describe the “nightmare” she had been through.

    She said multiple gunmen were not only firing weapons in the crowd but chasing people and gunning them down.

    She described how she was “chased” by one of the shooters:

    “We were rounding some sort of corner maybe- and I looked to the right and I saw this large cowboy sitting down with his legs spread, holding a blood-soaked woman.

    “I thought to myself ‘we NEED to hide’, but as I looked quickly for somewhere to go, the gunfire once again got closer and closer.

    “We couldn’t hide because they (and I do mean THEY) were chasing us.””I kept looking back expecting to see the gunmen- and I say MEN because there was more than one person. “There was more than one gun firing. 100% more than one.”

    She also stated that what was being reported by the mainstream news networks didn’t match the events that actually took place, saying:

    “I have bene [been] watching the news non-stop since I arrived back home to my family. And it just doesn’t make sense.”

    The story that are feeding everyone doesn’t add up to our eyewitness accounts. There is something wrong with what they are saying & the evidence seems fake if you ask me.

    “There are multiple people stating that there was a lady towards the beginning of the evening who had made her way up to the stage warning people that we were all gunna die- her and her boyfriend were escorted off the premises.”

    Why has she not been mentioned by authorities? Every single survivor I have talked to also remembers multiple shooters, and at least one from the ground- why aren’t we being taken more seriously? Tons of things don’t add up.”

    According to Sea Coast Online, Suchomel, 28, who was not injured during last week’s shooting, died early Monday at her Apple Valley home, according to her grandmother, Julie Norton.Norton found Suchomel just after 8:30 a.m. when she arrived to care for her 3-year-old great-granddaughter, Scarlett. She believes Suchomel may have died in her sleep after her husband, Mike, left for work at 4:30 a.m.

    Norton told the Daily Press: “I believe the stress from the shooting took her life.”

    Days after the shooting, Suchomel explained to the Victorville Daily Press how she and her friends escaped with their lives as a gunman, perched from a hotel suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, opened fire on some 20,000 concertgoers on Oct. 1.

    With 58 people killed by the gunman and nearly 500 wounded, the Las Vegas event is the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

    “That was the night that my life, and the lives of my friends, and so many others were changed forever,” Suchomel told the Daily Press the day after the shooting.

    “I might have escaped unharmed, but I know that I’ve been emotionally and mentally scarred for life.”

    Suchomel shared her fear of trying to fall asleep at night as the “sounds of gunfire” become louder in her head and the images of “broken and bloody bodies” flashed through her mind.

    Major Cover-upKymberley Suchomel isn’t the first key witness to have died since the shooting attack after a man killed himself and his disabled daughter in a horrific murder-suicide shortly after the FBI raided his home.

    John Beilman was wanted for questioning by federal agents in connection with a communications device discovered in suspected shooter Stephen Paddock’s hotel room.

    Earlier this week, a valet worker from the Mandalay Bay hotel who parked suspected shooter Stephen Paddock’s car, disappeared without a word to friends or colleagues.

    Chad Nishimura mysteriously vanished shortly after he gave a statement to a local news network saying that Paddock was just a “normal guy” and that “he didn’t have many bags.”

    Also, it was revealed today that the Mandalay Bay hotel security guard who was hailed a hero by the law enforcement and the mainstream media, Jesus Campos, has gone missing.

    Campos was due to appear on Fox News with Sean Hannity last night, which was 1 of 5 TV interviews he was scheduled for, but he didn’t show.

    This discovery emerged shortly after it was revealed that Campos was shot before the shooting massacre has started, and not after as the “official” narrative had claimed.
