I agree. People are dangerous.

I am not "relieved" though - I don't care if the attacker was a Muslim, people of colour or a white racist. Like yesterday, there was a terror attack in Marseille. Dunno. You have assholes everywhere. I am so tired of all these horrible creatures with a fundamentalist background, either fundamentalist islam or racist white trash having voted for Trump who commits such crimes :(
Anyway, America HAS changed under Trump and I hope that this horrible act of terror will open some people's eyes!

We have horrible shootings in the US on a weekly basis and ppl still stick to their stupid guns. People should not be allowed to buy or carry them.

One person as terrorist without any organisation? Without ideology?

That’s more mental illness than terrorist to me

Terrorists can have different backgrounds than fundamentalist Islam.

And the definition of terror includes several aspects:

● violent or destructive acts (such as bombing) committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands

But also:

● a state of intense fear

The white trash shooter might not have worked in a terror organisation (investigation will find out if he was a lone wolf) but if we label a fundamentalist Muslim who commits a crime "in the name of Allah" (what he thinks he's doing) even though he had no ties with IS or so, then we have to call the white shooter a terrorist as well. He clearly brought a state of intense fear (definition of what terror is) to Las Vegas.

The images and videos from the scene are so heartbreaking. RIP to all the victims who were supposed to enjoy a night out but instead lost their lives because of a sick son of a bitch.

I do get your point but killing in the name of religion like you saying Allah etc and go into hotel with heavy gun machine at age 64 and kill people just like that ? I hope they will find out what caused this ...

Gosh over 50 dead I don’t wanna think what final number it’s gonna be

That’s insane

Paddock Was Possibly Going Through a Divorce & Sued a Las Vegas Strip Casino in 2012

Edit : Former @LVMPD officer says Las Vegas shooter was identified through his hotel's smoke detectors, detecting the smoke from his weapon.

Imagine if without this detectors they were still looking for hom :o

Was this a random event or was there some planning/threatening behaviour taking place beforehand? If the latter then :-? :-?

It was clearly planned, but the reasons why he did it at this point are unknown. They have a search warrant for his residence, which will hopefully have some evidence that tells us why he did it. I'm also curious what the woman's role was, and thankfully she's in custody.

Been to the strip a few times and I was there earlier this year. It is such an exciting and fun place to walk around. It's heartbreaking thinking of all the people that were there just to enjoy themselves a little. :(

CNN: "Inside his room, authorities found a cache of weapons, including 10 rifles", the sheriff said.

If he had 50 guns, I've yet to read on any news source, but regardless of 10 or 50, they could all be brought in after several trips to his vehicle. Probably all in luggage-type containers.

It is.

And ISIS has claimed Paddock as one of its soldiers.
