    Default :::Stephen Paddock "Had No Motive" (Incredible)

    "The FBI has ended its investigation into the deadly Las Vegas shooting after finding no motive to explain why a shooter opened fire on a country music festival from a hotel room overlooking the concert grounds."

    No motive???? He was set up. Lured there on the idea he would sell some guns....He was then executed.
    Did he really ever fire a shot???

    I am not being a wise ass in saying this: only very recently have I started to view the subforums, and now recognize the way in which threads are categorized. Seriously; I should've known that this topic had already been covered. Appreciate you pointing this out.

    No motive.

    I could only wish to be a fly on the wall when the conclusion was slated to be publicly released:

    "I guess we'll issue a statement saying that we couldn't find a motive."

    "Do you think that the public will buy such a flimsy conclusion?"

    "We'll soon see..."

    I am beyond words.

    What? I’ve never heard this, actually I’ve never heard much about this investigation as it was ongoing.

    Can you expound on this?

    Sometimes people do crazy shit for little to no reason. If he was going schizo or something it could have triggered something in his mind. In the end, the motive matters little unless there's a preventable driving force behind it. He obviously spent some time scouting locations and making reservations at other hotels that overlooked music festivals. This wasn't a one time thing. It was obviously something he was hellbent on doing and finally went through with it.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    If you read the NPR story, they quote the FBI as saying this is fairly common.

    Yep. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that he planned his suicide years ago and figured he would take as many with him as he could. In the movie 8mm, Nicolas Cage’s character asked the lawyer why his filthy-rich client paid a million dollars for a snuff film. The answer was “because he could.” I think the same goes for Paddick...he did it because he could. Nothing more...nothing less.

    My bad everybody--We will never know the truth like so many other events around the world...I will never trust the official narrative...without all the facts exposed I could never determine what the truth may or may not be. There is no truth in reporting anymore...sarcasm yes/suspicion of an ulterior motive absolutely!!!
