Was Paddock insane or a dirtbag?

    @widgeon I don't know but that would make a heck of a noise when that stuff hit the ground. That exterior insulated bronzed glass is really heavy.

    There was a window washing crew whose platform got caught in a freak wind here and their platform was swinging out and bouncing of the bldg glass. Didn't break through.

    I'll see if there is a "Youtube" video.

    Personally , I think there's more to the girlfriend story. Something's fishy. She goes to the Philippines because he sent her, he sends a large sum of money.

    It could be some kind of hostage situation. Maybe he felt forced into doing what he did. Stranger things have happened.

    Before the shooting, I heard that shows and concerts are now the biggest moneymakers in Vegas, not gambling. Maybe somebody didn't like that situation and cooked up some scheme to affect change.

    The younger brother of the shooter is hoping the autopsy finds a brain tumor or something to help explain why. We're all grasping at straws to explain the motive.

    I am still confused by this - he clearly doesn't fit any expected profiles.

    No evidence of prior military service for firearms training.

    No evidence of failed attempts to join military with wanna be mentality.

    No evidence of prior criminal convictions or grudges against society.

    Basically all we have it that the guy was a rich dick that became a murderous POS.

    Yep...Friends of mine in the business say it's trying to become an adult Disneyworld/land because Nevada is no longer the only game in town anymore.

    I look forward to the video surveillance from the 32nd floor for the 7 days Paddock was there....Has anyone been interviewed yet who was actually on the 32nd floor?

    That's one of my thoughts. The UT Texas Tower shooter was found to have a brain tumor. Maybe that's why Paddock was on the diazepam. Anxiety of being terminal.

    I know better than to start jumping to conclusions and follow the audit trail but I have to admit I don't know if I'm angry or shocked about this massacre and want to find a solution and therefore a possible prevention.
