    Mass Murder at Las Vegas concert

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nati...icle-1.3535657

    DISGUSTING.

    In excess of 50 killed per reports...

    "Hundreds of bullets rained down on a jam-packed outdoor concert at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino along the Las Vegas Strip late Sunday, killing at least 50 people and wounding scores in what is now the worst mass public shooting in U.S. history.

    The gunman fired numerous rounds from his 32nd floor perch, injuring more than 200 revelers listening to country musician Jason Aldean during the Route 91 Harvest festival around 10 p.m. local time."

    I am so disgusted and saddened by this. I was actually listening to this concert last night on my way home on XM, and you can hear the crowd into it and having fun. This piece of shit and his roommate are a disgrace to human beings. Apparently she was walking around the crowd telling people they were gonna die before the shooting happened. Really disgusted with this world we are leaving our kids.

    The gun was an illegal gun to begin with, so more gun laws wouldnt have helped in this situation. The real discussion we need to have is about mental health and to stop coddling people with mental health issues. We are so afraid of offending people with mental illness that we ignore it and let them do what they want.

    Friend of mine was at the concert. Said it was a shit show when the rounds stared firing. A few people around him were shot, he doesn't know how he wasn't. People are so fucked up.

    Such a scary situation. I know everyone will want answers but some things just can't be answered. How can someone reach a point in their lives where they feel something like this is necessary? Pure evil cannot be defined sometimes. Thoughts and prayers to all the victims and survivors that will somehow come to grips with this.

    Unfortunately, we have no idea what the shooter's motives were yet. He reportedly killed himself as police broke the door down to his room, and as I've read, they got nowhere questioning his family or girlfriend. This is probably going to take weeks to understand. If not longer.

    Apparently his father suffered from mental illness and was in prison for bank robbery, broke out of prison and was a wanted fugitive for a while. He was finally captured, but maybe the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    Mentally sane, stable people don't murder people. what's there to look into?

    Let me give it a whirl
    Probably grew up with 1 parent absent
    Probably coddled
    Probably pushed through school "smart kid, not very social, didn't apply himself in school. "
    Awkward socially
    Killed animals since early teens
    "Great guy" to every liberal
    in reality, everyone would label him as the "crazy" guy that could snap... BUT YOUNCANT SAY THAT THESE DAYS...


    Only thing I read is that his brother was livid he got a hold of a semi rifle... that says enough.

    If my (non gun owning) relative went out and bought a gun, I'd say "why", not "who the fuck sold this to him?!?!"

    Apparently he was a multimillionaire and made a lot of his money through real estate. He was also an accountant and played high stakes video poker. This was all said by his brother today, so I dont know how true it actually is.

    What is this all about? The world is becoming less fun by the minute. I’m in agreement that mental health is the next taboo to be tackled here and abroad. If we don’t face it worldwide we are going to face more and more of these unfortunate incidents. RIP all who died.

    Anyone see the video floating around of a "possible" 2nd shooter? Idk how real it is. It could be doctored, it could be just reflections. It shows what looks like muzzle flashes coming from somewhere way lower than the 32nd floor, probably in the bottom 10 floors. The flashes match up well with the sound of the gunshots if you take the time into consideration of seeing the flash before hearing the shot.
