Over 50 persons killed, hundreds injured in shooting in Las Vegas...


Terrorism does not appear to be the motive. The female companion the shooter was traveling with has been detained by police. The shooter is dead and was known to local authorities.

Prayers and condolences to the victims and their families.

  1. I've started to invoke a personal 72 hour rule on these things. In these first 72 hours, the critical thing is helping the injured, especially now that the shooter was taken out.

    That said, interesting picture with the officers taking cover and the two knuckle heads just standing around with their cellphones. Wow.

    1. I saw that picture and thought the same thing you did.

  2. The picture certainly lacks adequate context. We don't know when the picture was taken in relation to the events. So we don't know if the cops are over-reacting or the people standing around (including the person taking the photo) are just foolish idiots. Considering most people ran for cover and others ran to provide aid; I'm inclined to see the others standing around as an example of the culture today.

    Even if the cops are overreacting, these people standing around are a problem and not helping. It reminds of Michael Bennett's complaints at another Las Vegas shooting earlier this year. He didn't understand why cops arrested him, except Bennett was acting like these guys. Most people ran, some provided aid, and the cops still think there is an active shooter. And you, your just standing around like its another f'in day at the casino, which makes you a potential problem to neutralize. Look folks, evacuate the scene, provide aid, but don't stand there and be a dick.
