Maybe he didnít do the shooting...

Other than he took a fucking video of himself doing it.

Re: Las Vegas Shooting Conspiracy / Alternative Theory Thread

I'm stopping by briefly to say all the conspiracy theories being floated so far are batshit looney. Much like most conspiracy theories.

Alright, leaving now.

The other thread was going downhill fast. It keeps that one fact focused, and the people that want to speculate can do so here. Similar to the Trump Conspiracy thread.

If there's nonsense being posted, perhaps just delete the nonsense and warn the posters rather than giving their garbage the approval of its own thread?

Re: Las Vegas Shooting Conspiracy / Alternative Theory Thread

To my knowledge there's no DVDTalk rule against conspiracy theories. I did try at one time to implement a rule for this forum that all claims require a citation but it was not well received.

If posting something stupid was against the rules, half of the posters here would have been banned. The conspiracy stuff is off topic, but itís not something that is disallowed by the rules here.

Re: Las Vegas Shooting Conspiracy / Alternative Theory Thread

The stuff I was discussing is definitely not in conspiracy territory - saying that Paddock was made to do the shootings is in conspiracy land.

Re: Las Vegas Shooting Conspiracy / Alternative Theory Thread

Given the approximate location of the shooting, it's all GOT to be related to the planned building of the new Raiders stadium. So the key is trying to figure out who gains the most of the stadium plans are scrapped.

Your explanation of the events is EXACTLY the definition of a conspiracy theory.

Dictionary.com definition

conspiracy theory
Examples
noun
1.
a theory that explains an event as being the result of a plot by a covert group or organization; a belief that a particular unexplained event was caused by such a group.

?? Who said I thought a group was behind a possible second shooter? Damn, another person who just doesn't get it.

When did I ever say a covert group was involved? Why the hell did you even post that?

You said there was more than one shooter, correct?

Re: Las Vegas Shooting Conspiracy / Alternative Theory Thread

No, I said based on what I heard and saw - it's possible (how many times do I have to say this). I never said there was for sure and I don't know why there would be - I said.....based on what I saw and heard in the videos I watched - It's possible.

Even if I DID say that I thought for sure there was more than one shooter.....I still wouldn't jump to conclusions say that it was a covert group that was responsible.

You're so far off base with posting that - it's ridiculous.

That you cannot see how wrong you are is a perfect example of why whack-job conspiracy theories germinate and flourish so readily in the United States of America... and elsewhere. It's been a couple of days and already this shit is cropping up. Self fulfilling.

Do YOU believe the official explanation that Stephen Paddock was a lone wolf gunman who shot all those people from his hotel room?

Re: Las Vegas Shooting Conspiracy / Alternative Theory Thread

Of course I do, but I'm also intrigued about the videos I saw about a possible second shooter - so far, I do not believe there was a second shooter but I do think it should be investigated more - especially as there were initial reports to the police of a possible second suspect on the 4th floor - absolutely it should (and more than likely is) be investigated more.
