MGM, the owner of Mandalay Bay Hotel where Paddock committed the crime, has agreed to pay up to $800-million to settle lawsuits, although it is unclear why the hotel is liable. The most significant aspect of this settlement is that it will protect MGM from further investigation arising form these law suits.
MGM is claiming that a 2002 federal law extends liability protection to any company that uses ‘anti-terrorism’ technology or services that can prevent and respond to mass violence, and MGM hired security for the concert that was certified by the Department of Homeland Security. A victims’ attorney says that only the security company is protected from liability under the federal law and MGM is still on the hook for liability.
New video shows officers waiting in a hallway during the Las Vegas shooting while the event was happening. Attorney Catherine Lombardo says that a Mandalay Bay security officer gave testimony to the FBI on nine occasions that he was on the 32nd floor with Officer Hendricks during the shooting, but the video shows Officer Hendricks on the 31st floor, in yet another discrepancy in the official narrative.
Las Vegas: Newly revealed records show Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) received thousands of emergency calls on the night of the shooting on October 1st reporting other active shooters from numerous locations including: Luxor, Tropicana, New York, New York, MGM, Hooters, Aria, Cosmopolitan, Miracle Mile Shopping, Bellagio, Paris, Caesar’s Palace and Harrah’s. ‘Lone shooter’ Stephen Paddock had three women in his room at the time of the shooting.
After a court ordered the publication of law enforcement documents, Las Vegas sheriff Joe Lombardo revealed that there is an ongoing FBI case against an “individual of federal interest” other than Stephen Paddock or his girlfriend Marilou Danley, which is in total contradiction to the official story in which he adamantly states that Paddock acted alone.
Citizen journalist, Laura Loomer, reports that only half of the 58 victims at the Las Vegas shooting were examined by the coroner, which likely is illegal. The reason this is important is that proper autopsies would provide information about types of bullets, weapons, and trajectories that might prove that there were multiple shooters.
Las Vegas: A casino security expert questions where the 40-member SWAT Team was during the event. The city provided a lawyer with the special event permit from the city for the outdoor concert that was filled out by hand by a Mandalay Bay corporate executive, instead of the producer of the event that took place across the street from the hotel. Two Mandalay Bay Hotel workers filmed themselves during the shooting, lockdown and evacuation.
A casino security guard debunks the official story of the shooting and the activities of Jesus Campos, who was shot in the leg by Paddock. Campos’ lack of a required state security guard card and his treatment at a Quick-care facility that cannot be confirmed raises questions. We do not endorse Still’s petition for an investigation, but do think he has brought to light important facts that seriously challenge the veracity of the official story.
