Las Vegas Police: We Don't Know Mandalay Bay Shooter's Motive And There Was No Second Shooter

It’s been almost a year since Stephen Paddock checked into the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas and committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. Over the course of a week, Paddock is seen on multiple security cameras leaving and returning with multiple bags at Mandalay. We now know they were filled with ammunition and additional firearms. He carried a total of 21 bags into his room. Two-dozen firearms were recovered from his 32ndfloor room, with some equipped with bump stocks that mimic automatic fire. On October 1, 2017, he opened fire on attendees at the nearby Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival across the street from the hotel, killing 58 people and wounding over 400 more. It was an act of unspeakable evil, one that wouldn’t have been stopped by any of the gun control proposals Democrats have been pushing for years.    

  Yet, what was the motive? And was there a second shooter? Well, the Las Vegas police just released their report on the incident, where they admit that they cannot conclude what motivated Paddock to commit this heinous act of mass murder. They did conclude that Paddock acted alone, and that there was no conspiracy. No further charges will be filed relating to this shooting (via AP):

More than 10 months after the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, police say they are closing their investigation without answering the key question: What drove a gunman to unleash a hail of gunfire that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more?

But authorities say after hundreds of interviews and thousands of hours of investigative work, they are confident there is no evidence of a conspiracy or a second gunman 

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Stephen Paddock was “an unremarkable man” who showed signs of a troubled mind leading up to the Oct. 1 shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, but authorities don’t have any clear answers.

Lombardo said that with the closure of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s 10-month investigation, no one else will be charged in connection with the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The FBI said they would release their report after the one-year anniversary of the attack. The shooting also exposed the nastiness of American progressives, with a former CBS executive commenting on social media that she felt no sympathy for the victims because they were probably Republicans and gun owners. Her evidence: they were listening to country music. CBS later gave her the axe for these remarks. A Chicago deli owner also commented on Twitter, “Soon as I heard it was country music, I felt relief. White people shooting white people isn’t [sic] terror…it’s community outreach.”

And people think that conservatives are the radical ones. Both from progressive cesspools—CBS and Chicago—both expressing disdain for dead victims because these people might be Republicans. It’s irrelevant for sure. People died—who cares what their politics might have been, but it’s a friendly reminder that even in our worst moments, you can always count on the liberal to say something stupid about people with whom they disagree. That’s how they’re hardwired. 

Overall, there isn’t much new with this report, and we should probably expect the same conclusion from the FBI report concerning motive as well. Evil doesn’t need a motive.
