    California, unfortunately
    Perfect example of just accepting what we are told.

    "Paddock's game of choice was VIDEO POKER. That's a computer! It's programmed to ensure the house wins. Not all the time, but at least often enough to make casino owners multibillionaires. Anyone who plays video poker over an extended period of time will absolutely, 100 percent, by basic logic, end up a net loser. So why are the media insistent that Paddock was getting rich by playing video poker?

    The most likely explanation is that the reporters and investigators are incompetent nitwits. But the changing facts from law enforcement and preposterous lies from the press aren't doing a lot to tamp down alternative theories of the crime.

    Among the questions not being asked by our wildly incurious media:

    Why would Paddock unload 200 rounds into the hallway at a security guard who was checking on someone else's room before beginning his massacre?

    How can it possibly take eight days to figure out when the alleged shooter checked into the hotel?

    Why was Paddock wearing gloves if he was about to commit suicide?

    Have any other solitary mass shooters ever had girlfriends?

    If Paddock wasn't making money on video poker -- and he wasn't -- why would he be cycling millions of dollars through a casino, turning every dollar into, at best, 99 cents?

    Maybe Paddock enjoyed video poker. But if the allegedly serious media are going to keep telling us he was making a living doing it, they're just begging us to say that losing a percent or two on millions of dollars doesn't make sense as an investment strategy, but it does make sense as a money laundering operation."

    Hey people like grabbing straws. They like to feel stuff. Nothing has to make sense.

    Money laundering for the mob or for terrorists...perhaps.

    He was also known to have lost $1000.00 bets on poker hands.

    Maybe he was an IRS agent gone bad. He worked for the IRS previously for ten years.'

    But like API says...straws...lots and lots of straws...too many straws.

    Terrorists fund their operations here and send the money overseas using old mob tactics. Cigarette and other individually taxed items in low tax states bought by the truckload and brought to a high tax state and sold to unsuspecting customers.

    Gotta go.

    Simple, it didn't, posted 3 days after the shooting:
    metro.co.uk › World › Las Vegas shooting
    Oct 3, 2017 - Paddock had checked in to his hotel three days before he killed......................
    Time to break out the tinfoil hats!

    The hotel would have known immediately. They couldn't be using an old bucket system which has paper individual room folios. Their check-in system would immediately be able to tell when he checked. Whether he occupied the room at that time they may not have known.

    Anyway...

    Resort disputes police timeline of Las Vegas shooting

    Paddock would wager up to $1 million a night but wandered around casinos in sweatpants and flip-flops. He carried his own drink into the high rollers' area because he didn't want to tip the waitresses much, according to a deposition obtained exclusively by CNN that was part of a 2013 civil lawsuit Paddock brought against the Cosmopolitan Hotel over a fall.

    Don't know...maybe he killed all of those people because the casino shorted him a shrimp in his shrimp cocktail or used French dressing instead of Russian on his salad. :rolleyes:

    Accept the fact all information or details in a case like this is never going to be released to the public or news media. Officials throw the media a bone today and they are all over it like ravenous dogs true or not true.
