What is interesting is that the shooting took place at 2:30pm Eastern time, and it is 10:50 which is like 8 hours later, and we still do not know the name of the civilian victim or the names of the two shooters.

Usually within an hour or two, there are at least two versions of names of the perps, and a half-dozen stories about how they are tied to the tea party. We’d already have their facebook pages which would have been wiped, and their manifestos, we’d have speculation on where they got the weapons, who they were affiliated with, etc..

I don’t know if it is actually refreshing or not, but they certainly are doing an excellent job controlling the news releases here.

For example, I’ve been waiting all day to see some confirmation or refutation of a comment made early on that the dead civilian was CCW and had engaged the suspects. But there’s been nothing in any of the official news stories, most of which are quoting each other and not providing additional information.

I guess being a sunday afternoon kind of cut back on the news cycle.

I finally found a reasonable "news source" that mentions CCW:

Yahoo News: Las Vegas SHooting

The attackers then ran across the parking lot to a nearby Walmart store, and the Review-Journal said they exchanged gunfire with and ultimately killed a civilian who was carrying a concealed weapon.

The civilian, who has not yet been identified, was found dead inside the front door.

“Marlene Buck works at the Denny’s on Nellis across from WalMart. She said she was impressed with how quickly Metro responded. “It took less than fifteen minutes,” she said.”

I’m guessing leftists. They’re blaming Walmart for the accident that critically injured comedian Tracy Morgan.

Elaboration may be lacking due to the nature of the crime involving the apparent targeted execution of LEOs.

These types of crimes are disturbing.

“they’re usually pretty good at covering up stories that are hurtful to the left, so.........”

...so it’s their lead story because it’s finally their dream come true:

“They then covered the officers with something that featured the Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me.”

“The flag is named for Christopher Gadsden a Revolutionary War general who designed it. It has recently come back in vogue as an adopted symbol of the American tea party movement.”

You would not think so considering that they are already associating these scumbags with the tea party for example in the linked article it says:

The flag is named for Christopher Gadsden a Revolutionary War general who designed it. It has recently come back in vogue as an adopted symbol of the American tea party movement.

Tea Party is normally not known for committing suicide murders, however.

First may God give comfort to the families of the slain officers.

I have become very suspicious. I am starting to believe this and the Moncton fatal shootings are part of a well orchestrated plan to make sure those who support gun rights and those who speak against government abuses or expansion are seen as dangerous and a threat to public safety.

Has anyone checked to see if the killers have social media pages and whether these pages look like plants? I hate having this mindset but we know how the radical Left loves to use a crisis to surpass the trappings of law.

Continuing from the related locked thread:

GE: Armed citizen engaged and killed Peter Pan.

AK: Read the whole article. An armed citizen did not kill them.
The two shooters killed each other.

And stop calling citizens ‘civilians’.


You're right. I let my imagination run wild... But I guess this implies Peter Pan was not an armed citizen.

How would one possibly engineer something like this? Complete with suicides? That would be the puzzlement to me. Islamic radicals with their 72 virgins, I could believe would have a reason to commit suicide slayings. Even if (though) it’s the wrong reason.

And if there is a cult teaching people to do this, I’d be real curious where it is and what it is about. Too bad that the myriad straight arrow Tea Party’s regalia is getting co-opted by such loons.

I can understand the suspicion about a set-up event, but my belief is that various gun rampages are 99% mental breakdowns and 1% ideology in most cases, and whatever ideology the perps might appear to espouse, that is not the primary factor in setting them off. With so much drug use thrown into the mix, we have to expect a steady background noise level of these events. Have you ever heard non-violent crazy people talking in a public place? People who are high on drugs but off their more useful meds? The monologue often makes reference to something “out there” but the level of integrated thought is very low.

Can give one recent example. Was on an escalator in a busy mall, a guy was just about level with me, looking back and talking in a very animated way about modelling jobs, Brittany Spears, and image. It seemed out of character but I assumed he had a female companion out of my immediate line of sight. But when I got off the escalator and he was still going on, I turned around and there’s a couple of blond teenagers way down the escalator, not even aware of him or his frantic utterances. Yet in his head, I’m sure he was convinced that they were “having a significant talk.”

Now if he suddently went violent some onlookers might say, “the guy was yelling about Brittany Spears” (sure I’ve spelled her name wrong but anyway) but of course he might just as easily have been blabbering on about Queen Elizabeth or dead whales. And he might have somehow acquired a T-shirt with a political message. Perhaps it even meant something to him one day, but during a psychotic break, it means nothing. This is what I imagine happened in this case. A lot of people are searching in this chaotic world, they find partial answers but they find other partial “answers” that turn out to be totally false leads. This seems to be happening more and more frequently on both sides of the political divide, and while the madness on the other side seems to have reached the top, we can’t be surprised if it creeps in near the bottom of our pile.

Probably another mental illness shooting. The media has been holding back on some of the mass shootings because the anti-gun narrative isn’t getting the focus as much as the anti-mental illness narrative. People are starting to worry about the mentally-ill who are a protected class in the eyes of the media.
I would love to know whether the mentally-ill who perform these shootings are on Disability for their mental illness. I think a recurring theme in these shootings are a lack of a job.

You’re right of course. Engineered may be too strong a word but I still think the rise in such incidents will continue and that they are not as they first appear in media accounts which tend to place blame on “gun nuts” and anti government types.

You may scoff at this but I also think there is a spiritual element at work here. A spirit of chaos, darkness, and hatred for mankind. The enemy wants us to be fearful and he wants us to be slaves to that fear so that we will lose hope. So in this as in all things I shall trust in Christ and know He will see us through the coming times.
