I wish this guy had just a smattering of the honor that the Unibomber’s brother had.

I thought his brother didn’t know much at all about his brothers interests?

Professional money launderer that used casinos to buy chips with illicit cash. Gambled a bit with the chips, then cashed them in for clean cash classified as “winnings”.

Nobody wins against the house legally.

Not true. I would say just about nobody wins on the state lotteries. But casinos have a slightly better chance than 50-50 of winning. That slight 1 or 2 percent chance gives them their wealth.

My wife and I gamble for fun, doing it at least several times a year. For the last 8 years or so, we've come out ahead nearly 90 percent of the time, beating the 50-50 odds. That's paid for our meals, trip expenses and other items. We don't gamble high stakes. I cringe when people are sitting next to me betting $500 bets per hand. We're not out to make money, as we're doing just fine. But we're not about to throw money away either in case our luck goes sour when gambling. Gambling in a casino is way better than throwing away money at lotto tickets - a sure losing bet.

"He didn’t have a lot of friends," Paddock continued. "He was a private person. There’s a story about that he’s, ‘ohhhh, he kept his shades closed, and he didn’t talk to me for the first three times he saw me walking in the neighborhood.’ Wow. That makes him really weird, doesn’t it?"

Well. that and the fact that he murdered 58 people in cold blood.

New thought — a mob hit man would make plenty of money? Just an idea

The long-term odds are what they are. But the long term is merely theoretical. In real life, there are long streaks one way or the other.

This guy has an odd way of defending his dead psychopathic brother. If my brother did such a thing, I’d be completely mortified and begging for forgiveness from the bereaved for not identifying his pathology beforehand every time I could get in front of a camera.

How does a DRUNK who gambles in 8 hour long stretches find the time to mastermind, organize and execute one of the most meticulously planned heinous crimes ever committed in the United States? There is no way he could've done this without AT LEAST having a GOOGLE SEARCH HISTORY somewhere!

I don't have the answer and this is why I believe he is merely an AGENT for the Deep State in order to advance growth of the federal police state and civilian gun bans.

One of my high school math teachers back in the 60s in Arizona was a notorious card counter.

He was banned from the Las Vegas casinos for winning more than their limit standards.

The other brother said he had not talked to or seen him in twenty years and did not immediately recognize him when he saw his picture on TV.

I used to work a few years ago with a smart guy, a statistician. He used to visit Las Vegas & Atlantic City casinos frequently, and he was a card counter. He made some money but not enough to quit his day job by any means. It got harder and harder for him because the casinos captured his face through facial recognition software and he was banned in many of casinos. I don’t think anyone could become a millionaire through card counting in this electronic surveillance age.

“Why is the brother still running his mouth?......Why does he give all these deeply personal interviews outside on the front lawn, most likely with neighbors staring at the commotion?....I’m going to venture an answer to my own questions;......Maybe he wants to spread misinformation early in the investigation...... Why spread misinformation?..... That’s a good question, one that I leave for the experts....”

I suspect the real truth about the shooter might also reveal some incriminating information about his brother also not necessarily connected to the LV shooting....

I don't know about the rest of you folks but if the killer brother was anything like his brother giving the interviews, then I think he was a nutcase.

This Eric guy is an odd duck. Something not quite right about him.
