I called hotline and they said they are already on it.
What I noticed was that his OTHER brothers (he has three) both said they haven't seen or talked to the killer in many years. One said 10 years. The other 20 years. The one he hadn't talked to in 20 years lives in Arizona, so it's not like distance was an issue.

That doesn't really align with what the third brother (the one blabbing to the media) is saying about how loving and caring the killer was towards his family.

I mean, I could see you might have a falling out with one brother and not talk to them, but two out of three? That suggests there might be more to the family story than the brother who is talking to the media is willing to admit.

The blabbing brother seems nuttier than a fruitcake.
At first I thought it was shock.
Now I'm not so sure.

I came across the pic in the link below of the brothers together. Had I not previously seen a pic of the shooter, I'd assume the other one was the shooter just judging by that pic.

Stephen Paddock

4 sons. I guess the bank robber was good at something else besides bank robbing.

I think she's on to something. Worth reading.

Separate parking garage. No auto access in those towers.

God He was evil.
Years ago I interviewed for a job at McCarran as a Senior Network Security Analyst. They asked me to point out a serious security problem at the airport. Trying to be diplomatic I said I thought they needed to move the jet fuel storage to a more secure area. I didn't get the job so I guess they didn't like my answer.

I know the fuel storage was installed when we were a kinder people much less inclined towards terrorist acts. Perhaps after this incident they will move the fuel!

^^^ above post is very interesting. Is the tank made out of something that is bullet proof?

The brother in CA has a long rap sheet, so he didn't fall far from the tree.

If the shooter (will not use his name) is so rich, why don't they take his money and assets to pay off victims.

I don't think this is at all likely. ANTIFA is not 'home' to many old white men with money. They pretty much despise Paddock's demographic. That one just doesn't fit. Most likely fake news.

Meanwhile the new information today is that Paddock did not move into the suite until @24 hours before the attack. So he only had 1 day to set up. He did check in on Thursday but the room was not available till Saturday. So that means he moved everything in less than a day.

Apparently they found more ammo and ammonium nitrate in his car parked in the garage. They also said he had an escape plan but no details were given.

It's not the tanks, it is the chemistry of the fuel. The flashpoint of aviation fuel is much higher than gasoline.

No it's not. In action movies, a bullet or just a spark would blow one of these up. In real life it's not quite that simple.
