WE MAY NEVER KNOW THE MOTIVE… OR AT LEAST UNTIL OCTOBER NEXT YEAR – This really is the strangest mass shooting in history:
Want to finally know why Stephen Paddock gunned down 58 people in Las Vegas in early October?
Be prepared to wait a while – possibly until next October – the chief of the FBI’s Las Vegas office revealed this week during an interview in which he said the agency probably wouldn’t brief the public until their report is released sometime before the tragedy’s first anniversary.
“Now that’s a long time for some people, but speaking for the FBI, that’s light speed, all right?” Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse told the Las Vegas Review-Journal on Wednesday.
Rouse said reports from other agencies investigating the mass shooting will be released at different times, but the FBI’s one is “focusing a large part on the why” which is “what everybody wants to know.”
Why is it talking so long?
Matt Walsh’s great piece from earlier this month is still relevant – because nearly three months on so many questions remain unanswered.
