Are you implying some sort of conspiracy or something?

Nah. But they do keep dying. Doesn't this make four? :eek6

There were ~22,000 people at the concert, that's a post-shooting annualized death rate of ~.0011. That's roughly similar to the death rate for the US population at large.

Thought that'd be the case. Thanks for looking up the stats for us.

Accidents make up five to six percent of the total deaths each year. Heart disease including "old age" account for a quarter of US deaths and cancer more than twenty percent. So if four times as many of the concert goers are dying of cancer than from accidents, then it's unremarkable statistically.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Two months and questions remain.

Alleged lone shooter's estate worth 5 million. Did not leave a will. Brother says it should go to the victims. Probate court will decide who oversees the estate.

While I'm not a tin-foil hat kind of guy, there's far more to this story than we are being told.....

The coroner has issued a two statements.

All deaths at the concert were caused by a bullet to the head or chest. No deaths were from other causes.

The person in the room who was found dead, died from a bullet from a gun placed in his mouth. He has ruled it a suicide.

Want to finally know why Stephen Paddock gunned down 58 people in Las Vegas in early October?

Be prepared to wait a while – possibly until next October – the chief of the FBI’s Las Vegas office revealed this week during an interview in which he said the agency probably wouldn't brief the public until their report is released sometime before the tragedy’s first anniversary.

I don't really care that much about his motive. What I care about was:
1. Were there other shooters?
2. Did he have assistance from anyone?
3. Were any of the guns he used automatic?
4. Could have or should have anyone realized he was going to do this?
5. Was he a member of a terrorist organization or did he have contact with them?
6. Was he a government consultant, employee or volunteer at the time of the shooting?

If all the answers to these questions are no. Then things are pretty straight forward. Not no then I have a lot of issues.

Do they have forensics proving he shot anybody that day? As far as I can tell from what they released, the main evidence for suicide was nobody else in the room when the cops finally got there.

FBI says gunman spent a lot of time doing things to cover his tracks. Him or someone else?

Can you remotely imagine "The Black Lies Matter" crowd getting gunned down and nothing, absolutely nothing further is heard about it?

Isn't that why they started rioting in the first place? They were gunned down by the cops and the cops didn't go to jail.

His sniper roost was booked under his name. He was going to be the prime suspect if he survived. Same if he died. If he acted alone, he had nothing to gain by thwarting an after action investigation.
