Re: Las Vegas Mass Shooting October 1st 2017 - No Politics or Gun Control Discussion

What is the fascination with motive? as if anything could explain the "WHY" of this..
It seems People do not understand psychopathy. Or have a baseline idea of what it actually takes to perform acts of this nature.

Some people just want, need or are obsessed with causing devastation. Some have the combined need to be infamous for their acts and some are simply content with their actions alone without the credits. Nothing in this world could compel myself to act out that way, and that is true of 99% of society.

All evidence suggests there was no "motive" other than self indulgence in a grotesque act. I don't see much of a difference from Dahmer, if we could understand truly, then we would be psychotic as well..

Perhaps you should go beyond an introductory class and take an evidence or trial tactics class before you continue your argument.

Isn't "he wanted to swiss cheese some hominids" enough for motive? It's good enough in the hood why not when some rich idiotbox loses his marbles. How about he was intoxicated with the chemical of anger for endless days till it was time, in his mind, to share his anger with his fellow man which from his history sound like it was easy for him to be disassociated from.


If you grow up in the ****tier end of the spectrum in this society, with or without money, it's easy to say **** it time to turn someone into meat.

There is a difference between psychopathy and psychosis. This loser was clearly a psychopath.

Mandalay Bay has an aquarium. Perhaps the snorkeling equipment was part of an escape of some sort related to the aquarium.

Except that Dahmer didn't snap one day and kill a bunch of people, there was a long history of him that entirely makes sense when you piece it together.

The fascination is that 60 year old millionaires living the dream don't just "snap" and kill people without reason.

Your arm chair analysis is not at ALL corroborated by Paddock's upbringing, lifestyle or friends.

a 60 year old who deggened away most of his life savings thinking he was a "professional video poker player" and who was on dis-associative anti-anxiety meds might snap though.

dude wasn't a millionaire living a dream. he was a loser who wanted people to think that about him.

The amount of time I've spent on conspiracy theories surrounding this is out of line

Correct me if I'm wrong- I could have sworn it was reported that he destroyed the hard drive before he killed himself.

I wish people would just read the report. There are like four laptops, one of which had a broken hard drive.
