The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh demands answers for the still unanswered questions he says people are starting to forget to ask concerning the shooting in Las Vegas.
Walsh has a few questions about the shooting that he says still matter. The fact that we don’t have the answers to them yet, actually, is startling.
“Why did the timeline of the shooting change three times?” Walsh asks. And he doesn’t stop there.
Why isn’t there any footage of Paddock in Las Vegas? Why don’t we know exactly how many people injured were shot by Paddock? Why did police finally admit that they did discharge a weapon in Paddock’s hotel room? And why exactly did they do that if Paddock was already dead?
Most importantly, why aren’t we asking these questions any more?
The Daily Wire reports:
I actually don’t know how many people were shot. They tell us 527 people were injured, along with the 58 killed, but were all of those injuries from gunshots? Did the guy actually physically shoot 585 human beings? Or were some of the injuries from people getting knocked over and trampled in the melee? I would imagine the latter must be the case, but I don’t know. It’s been two months and we still don’t even know how many people Paddock shot. Maybe that number is available somewhere but I couldn’t find it. How is that possible? How could it be two months after the worst mass shooting in American history and we still don’t have a precise and well-publicized casualty count?
And that’s just one unanswered question.
There are many more, because, basically, none of the questions about Las Vegas have ever been answered. And they don’t need to be answered because nobody is asking them. So the questions remain. Questions like:
Why did he do it? We were told it wasn’t terrorism, even though ISIS claimed credit. Okay, then what was it? Was he crazy? But then how did a crazy person manage to orchestrate something like this? And why hasn’t a single person from Paddock’s personal life come forward and called him crazy? All we heard was that Paddock was a normal, rational guy. Dylann Roof was obviously disturbed. Adam Lanza had clear mental issues. James Holmes is a nutcase. The Orlando killer was a terrorist. Every single one of these guys fits into one of two categories: terrorist or lunatic. We’re told Stephen Paddock was neither of those things. What was he? Why did he do it? And why isn’t the media asking why he did it
Walsh wonders what the police were doing for the hour it took them to get into Paddock’s hotel room. His scathing questions let nobody off the hook. And they’re important questions, too. Why don’t we have the answers after so long?
Daily Wire continues:
Police didn’t finally enter the hotel room until an hour after the shooting stopped. What took them so long? Where were they? In one of the last press conferences about the shooting, the Las Vegas sheriff confirmed that the police were in the hotel when the shooting started. It took them over an hour to get upstairs? Or were they just waiting by the door as Paddock executed 58 people?
[…] And why did it take them a month to disclose that an officer did discharge his weapon inside Paddock’s room? They insisted for weeks that no officer fired a shot. Did they really not know? Or were they withholding the information? Why? And why was a shot fired if Paddock was allegedly already dead when they entered?
And why did Paddock wire $100,000 to the Philippines before the shooting?
And what happened to his missing hard drive? Did they ever find it? And why did he get rid of it? What’s on it?
We’re told Paddock had an escape plan. How could he have ever imagined that he might be able to escape? Did he have some help? Or was he supposed to have help but it fell through?
There must be answers to these questions.
Shouldn’t we be asking for them?
