Las Vegas Shooter

Post by Teetime on Wed Oct 04, 2017 6:50 pm

Anyone want to speculate about the motivation of this guy?

Retired accountant in his 60's who had saved up some money by investing in real estate, liked to gamble, lived with his girlfriend, no real criminal activity in his background......WTF?

Sounds like he went to a lot of trouble in this plot and started amassing weaponry over the last year.

The Philippines angle intrigues me given it's hot bededness with terrorism, but outside that he was probably just some lone nut job that had a lot of undiagnosed mental illnesses.

According to my facebook feed, he was a left wing nut job that hated Trump and targeted Trump supporters at a country music festival.

Might be finally time to just get rid of facebook. For all the good that it could be, it's just not worth the trouble most of the time.

Right. Profiled by a comic strip writer.

He starts off with the three possible motives:

1) He is crazy
2) Converted to ISIS
3) An anti-Trumpster

That's it. Nothing else. One of those three.

Then he quickly eliminates #1 and #2.

In his comic strip "profile" we are only left with #3. In spite of the fact that the shooter didn't discuss politics or even bother to register to vote from what I have heard. He had no internet presence that I have heard about. How do we get to "that's the only possible motive" (paraphrasing)?

We start with an incomplete and flawed list of possibilities.

I think it's certainly #1;' possibly #3 or possibly something else: #4 a Pro-Trumpeter

Is it possible that it was some kind of set-up? The guy was some kind of patsy? I know it sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory but I just can't believe they haven't found any kind of motive.

The guy sounds like he had a pretty awesome life. Hard to believe that that someone like that would do something so horrific.

Glad to see you know where to go for the real dope now..... Wink

I'm not sure the Periscope you posted is the same one I watched, but in the one I saw he was addressing other people's theories, not necessarily his own, and knocking down some of the wild conspiracy stuff.

But he did wonder how a guy could supposedly make a living at gambling playing house games. Poker, maybe, where you skin others, but against the house? Dilbert pondered whether a guy who pays cash for houses, owns two planes, and has a need to move a lot cash might do for his real living. The strong hint is that he ran drugs for cash, and used Vegas to launder it (buy $50,000 in chips, lose $10,000, cash out with cleaned money).

Then go upstairs, break out the windows and shoot 400 people?

His past aside, I can't imagine any scenario where a sane person does that. Can you?

Nope.

I'm thinking the guy had a brain tumor. That possibility escaped Dilbert completely.
