…and we’re all supposed to just nod our heads and agree.
In a dramatic shift to the original Las Vegas shooting narrative, over a week after Stephen Paddock rained down bullets on a crowd and killed 58 people, late on Monday Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo drastically changed the timeline of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, and now the gunman allegedly opened fire on a security guard six minutes before he unleashed the massacre. Officials had previously claimed that Paddock, 64, shot Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos only after Paddock had started shooting at the Route 91 Harvest country-music festival from his 32nd-floor hotel suite on Oct. 1.
The revision to the story also undermines the story surrounding the end of the shooting: officials had previously credited Campos, who was shot in the leg, with stopping the 10-minute assault by turning the gunman’s attention to the hotel hallway, where Campos was checking an alert for an open door in another guest’s room. However, with the revelation that Campos was shot before his mass shooting, officials now admit they don’t know why he stopped his attack.
So the security guard found Paddock before he started shooting into the crowd and yet he (Paddock) was still able to continue shooting for over ten minutes. Um…really?
What’s even more distressing is that I’m now seeing Left-wing “news” sites couching any criticism of law enforcement’s narrative as an “alt-right conspiracy theory” and strongly implying that these “alt-right” people are arguing that the shooting never happened. Predictably, all of the commenters have completely dismissed any criticism of the narrative, preferring to focus on those evil conservatives who are all claiming that this shooting never happened.
Just as those “news” outlets intended.
