We all know about the devastating events that make up the Las Vegas Shooting. While online conspiracy theories are running rampant what really is the truth?
This mass shooting was easily one of the most deadly we have faced in American history and with it, the lives of far too many have been cut short. In a new documentary making its rounds online, it seems more of the truth is coming out. This documentary reveals that the police were/are covering up details of the shooting because they were paid to do so.
This new film is titled “What Happened in Vegas” and it explored the role that the police there have had in covering up the details in regards to this shooting. This documentary is a searing examination of how out of control the abuse of power has truly gotten. You can watch the trailer for this film by clicking here, on that page it is also available for streaming.
At the root of the problem, the film explains, is that the LVPD is run by a sheriff elected in large part by donations from MGM, the corporation that runs the Mandalay Bay hotel. According to the documentary, Las Vegas police changed their story multiple times on the timeline of the shooting. One important detail the police lied about in several instances is the timing of Paddock’s shooting of security guard Jesus Campos. Why? It’s likely that the LVPD wanted to help the casino’s legal case, and if they claimed Campos was killed while trying to prevent Paddock’s rampage, as opposed to during or after, it could help the casino’s lawyers later claim that the Mandalay Bay had taken sufficient action to stop him. At least seven news organizations have since sued the LVPD for failing to release all the information from the night of the shooting, including the New York Times, the Associated Press, ABC, the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.
The documentary also suggests that if the police and casino had acted differently, the mass shooting might have been avoided. An exclusive clip, below, reveals a little-known piece of the story of what happened in Las Vegas earlier this year.
As Stephen Stubbs, an attorney working on behalf of the victims, explains, casinos like the Mandalay Bay have a “special back number” to a private wing of the police department which they use to alert the police of possible criminal activity within their casinos involving high rollers. Paddock was a regular at the casino, and known to be a highroller by the hotel’s staff, so the Mandalay Bay didn’t call 911 when Paddock shot Campos. They called the back line instead, and the operator didn’t link the shooting of Campos to the cascade of bullets pouring out of Paddock’s hotel window onto the Route 91 music festival.
“If they would’ve called 911, the 911 operator could have linked the two quicker, and the police would have gotten there quicker,” Stubbs said. “Less people would have died, and less people would have been shot, if the Mandalay Bay didn’t treat their high rollers differently, and if the LVPD didn’t allow casinos to treat high rollers differently. This is the truth that [Sheriff] Joe Lombardo doesn’t want to come out.”
Please take the time to checkout a clip from this documentary below. Stubbs is really bringing a lot to light in this short clip. I for one will be watching this whole documentary before I form my opinion on the things inside. What do you think?
