There was a teacher tweeting it was OK because they were likely all Trump supporters... It doesn't surprise me anymore the stupid shit people post on the internet under their own name.

Read a CBS Lawyer did this, and has been fired.

The idiocy of people knows no bounds.

The only thought that crossed my mind when I woke up and read the news was people were killed. Period. People.

Did I just read some tweets that Dan Bilzerian got his own rifle, strapped it to himself, and went back to the scene try to "clear" and "save" people?

I heard Bilzerian got home and was like there's nothing I can really do, so stayed home.

Dan also claims a girl got shot in the head next to him. I don't know, it's hard to take what he says sometimes as fact; guy comes across as the perfect person to ramp up up a situation around himself.

I had to google Dan Bilzerian.

Guess that's because poker is buried deep in my IDGAF folder.

The guy seems like a typical self-centered idiotic D-bag. But we don't want to detract from the real tragedy here.

Scary as we have local AZiners who are regularly in Vegas!!!

Dan was at the event. Saw some girl get shot in the head.

From what his IG/Snap story said, he went and got his guns and helped clear out anyone stuck.

Disbelief. Anger. Frustration that things won't ever change. Those were my feelings when I woke up to this news.

"I was near that concert late yesterday afternoon too."
...and I walked by there 2 years ago - thank God I am alright!

^Sorry for the sarcasm. I just find this phenomenon very odd - whenever there is a publicized event, everyone and their mother all of a sudden are from that area, or try to make it about themselves. Either you were at the event when the shots were fired, or (most likely) you weren't.
(you can ignore this post - this is just a pet peave of mine) /rant.

I have no relation to this event, but my heart still goes out to everyone involved. Very unfortunate.

Stuff like this just makes me so furious. Like these people are just going about their lives, not hurting anybody. I am both shocked and relieved (well this isn't the right word really because 1 death is as bad as 50 in my mind) that he only took 58 people, that place was packed, I feel like with eyes closed he could have killed much much more. There is legitimately no way I can begin to comprehend why this TERRORIST did what he did. Absolutely the filth of the earth and he will burn in hell for eternity I pray. Like that's 58 people who had hopes and dreams and wishes and aspirations. I wish he would have still been alive and just got the absolute fuck beat out of him till he died by the families of the people killed. I'm never a fan of violence, and in my personal life de-escalation is key. But in this case I whole heartedly condone it. Same to the waste of space who just commited a terrorist act here in my own city on saturday night and harmed 5 but luckily all are alive.

In the case of this 64 year old trash it was highly unexpected but the trash that committed the crime in my city was known for 2 years. I for one am sick and tired of "known" or "watched" individuals commiting crimes like these. There needs to be a lower threshold for custody when it comes to things like this. I will not be going to any concerts or sporting events anymore because this stuff happens too frequently. In situations where there is a lot of people I often get anxious and instead visit stores and public places during low traffic times instead. These are some turbulent and scary times we live in. Stay safe everybody.

He couldn't see his targets, and 500+ is a stupid high number. For a lone gunman rampage, the statistics on this one make it an outlier.

Also, unless he had a political or social agenda he wanted pushed, it's not terrorism. He was just a sick piece of shit.

to make matters worse; there's only 1 trauma unit there. the other hospitals will not be prepared for mass trauma victims.

really hope the nurses and doctors can save as MANY people as possible. it was a tough Monday for those folks

he performed an act that incited terror. It doesn’t have to be politically motivated.

a ER doctor from the LV hospital that took in 200+ injuried and some fatalities said the vast majority of the injuries were bullet and/or shrapnel wounds.

That's it.. the LVPD and authorities need to stop fucking with us.
I'm not saying this is a conspiracy but this is the 3rd video showing muzzle flash from the lower floors.

the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially forpolitical purposes.
2.
the state of fear and submission produced by terrorism or terrorization.
3.
a terroristic method of governing or of resisting a government (Dictionary.com)

At this point you are literally trying to argue semantics in order to get around calling a white guy a terrorist. If this guys' name was abdullah or mohammed, was born in the states, and did this attack with no connection to any terrorist organization he would be a terrorist right? Trying to argue that it was not political and therefore is not terrorism is utter bullshit and you know it. The political basis is absolutely one form of terrorism but cannot be used to fully blanket the whole term.
