FBI Still Baffled About Las Vegas Shooter: No Signs Of “Ideologies Or Connections To Any Groups” [VIDEO]

The Associated Press reports:

Authorities say the Las Vegas shooter had no visual abnormalities in his brain. Sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Friday that Stephen Paddock that an autopsy found nothing unusual during a visual inspection, but his brain was shipped to a facility to look for any minute problems.

Authorities haven’t determined why Paddock opened fire on a concert crowd, killing 58 people before shooting himself. Some believed an autopsy could shed light on any medical problems that could have contributed.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse says investigators have found no signs that Paddock had ideologies or connections to any groups.

  • Daveed_WOW

    He was clearly part of the gun cult.

    • Adam King

      ^^This in itself is a sign of mental illness.

    • another_steve

      Yes, but that generally doesn’t result in mass murderers.

      The absence of an apparent motive here is surreal. Mental illness of the worst kind can’t be ruled out.

      • Daveed_WOW

        Could be a new psychological disorder. Gun propaganda is bound to have effects.

        • another_steve

          I dunno, the Las Vegas incident seems more mysterious to me than that would suggest.

          Look at the United States’ “wild wild west” period of the 1800s. Every man of a certain age carried a gun. It was part of one’s basic wardrobe. Gun culture was ingrained in the human psyche of the day. Yet very few people became deranged mass murderers.

          Some did, but not many.

          • Daveed_WOW

            The Far Right is convinced that it’s ISIS because some Hispanic woman walked around and warned everyone and Hillary Clinton took money from Harvey Weinstein. Or something.

  • safari

    Maybe he just wanted to kill

  • HZ81

    An actual lone wolf terrorist—and asshole extraordinaire!!!

        Because “allocating” is too big a word for the President of the United States. I imagine he argued to change it with the following reasoning: “When you give someone a bunch of money it’s called an award!”

      • Todd20036

        Yeah. To help law enforcement. Not the victims or their families, mind you. Just law enforcement.

        “Awarding”? Did they win a competition for the money?

          Yes it is. Las Vegas won. Puerto Rico lost.

        • shellback

          Something about the swimsuit competition.

    • Tawreos

      Let’s not sink tot the level of the conspiracy theorists, according them he was a known liberal, as were all of the other mass shooters in history. It is easy to speculate that he supported the GOP, but until there is evidence we should hold off on saying that.

      • MonochromeMouse

        Liberals don’t own the number of guns he had. Ever. The shooter was a trumpist and nothing they say will ever convince me otherwise.

      • band

        I thought he was Obama’s in white face.

  • Todd20036

    Smells like fun. He was having fun. He was tired of living and wanted one last gargantuan thrill before shaking off his mortal coil.
    And what bigger thrill can you have than murdering dozens of people and in a sense getting away with it?
    He never spent a day in jail, and never had to answer for his crimes.

    • Adam King

      He got to actually use his precious gunny-wunnies.

        Sounds like The Orange Menace. “What good is it to have nuclear weapons if you don’t use them?”

      True.
      He was a gambler…and casinos treated him like a VIP, which means he was playing with large sums of money…which means he enjoyed thrills.

      Institutional religion (with some notable exceptions) is the most successful scam that humankind has ever devised because you cannot disprove any religion’s basic tenets. I cannot disprove that Jesus Christ died for my sins. I cannot disprove that Moses parted the Red Sea. I cannot disprove that Vishnu is one of the gods responsible for the creation, upkeep and destruction of the world.

      I cannot disprove the typical answer to the question that that cartoon character above asks – that typical answer being: “God’s reasons for what happens cannot be discerned by mere mortals.”

      • Lizard

        Not only that, if we accept that religion is completely made up, it becomes obvious that it’s just Conning 101: create the affliction (sin), then sell the cure (religion).

        • another_steve

          The mythologies are made up, yes. Products of the human ego. “I know the truth and you do not.”

          If you profess that your religion – of all the hundreds that exist – is the one true one and that all the others are false, you require psychological counseling.

          What is not made up is the human yearning for understanding. The eternal questioning.

          Why am I here? Where did I come from? What happens to ‘me’ when I die?

        Just for the record, tho, there’s a reason that phrase exists: “can’t prove a negative” – because it holds true. Some people are just more inclined than others to take advantage of it, and many are obviously willing to fall for it…

        • another_steve

          Yes.

          And you can’t disprove someone else’s metaphysical “truth.”

        Poor Vishnu: you make him sound like the world’s janitor.

        • another_steve

          Lol. Hindu religious mythology is very sexy. Lots of screwin’ and fuckin’ around.

          Might explain why India has the substantial population it does.

          • vorpal 😼

            Now you’ve gone and made Vishnu sound not only like a janitor, but the janitor of a very rowdy after hours party.

      • DesertSun59

        It amuses me that Christianity invented a problem and provides the solution to the invented problem:

        Adam ate an apple so you need Jesus to allow you to go to heaven.

        • another_steve

          What religion does is point to human weakness and capitalize – literally – on it. Girlfriend’s and boyfriend’s fall from grace in that garden is our fall.

          Daoists say that when we’re born we are as uncarved blocks. Natural. Innocent. Not yet ego-driven. Then something happens. We eat the metaphorical apple and descend from grace.

          It’s a very very old concept. The Christians didn’t invent it.

      • bzrd

        but, if you told those same jebus lovers that little red-ridding-hood’s grandmother was eaten by a wolf and you cut it open thus saving her life, they would think you were a nut

        • another_steve

          The Jesus narrative is somewhat “intuitive,” which is why it’s different in character from the Red Riding Hood story.

          That a weak mortal was unfairly persecuted yet rose from the ashes is something that most of us can identify with.

          We are most of us, from time to time, persecuted.

          We, most of us, rise again.

      • janey

        God our Father is not a helicopter parent. We are not babies, we are grownups and we should take responsibility for our own stupidities. Selling machine guns is one. Firing them at people is another one.

          Not the way I’d phrase it, but I agree w/ your general gist.

        • another_steve

          Ah, but you fail to remember that Adam and Eve’s transgression in the garden brought ruination unto humankind, redeemable only through the blood of the lamb Jesus. And that we are imperfect and incapable of acknowledging and adulating the perfection of his sacrifice.

    any word on his finances and such? Since he was a high-roller, would be curious if he were in big debt or something similar.

      I heard word he actually had just won pretty big on his massacre-vacation, and no one’s mentioned he had broader financial trouble, so he probably hadn’t gambled away his big money.

      • JWC

        When did ‘conservvatism become dis associated with responsibility

  • Judas Peckerwood

    Same motive as Ted Bundy’s — pure evil.

    • safari

      Ted was spurned by a woman with long brown hair. That started the killing.

      • Judas Peckerwood

        I’m guessing that there was a bit more to it.

        • safari

          I mean, he was a psychopath.

      • greenmanTN

        For whatever reason (like being a morbid fuck, perhaps) Bundy is one of my hobby horses. It’s true that he was spurned by a woman with long dark hair, but his victims were pretty much random, whoever fell for the scam he used to lure them. Long straight hair parted in the middle was a very common style at the time and that probably had more to do with his victimology than anything.

        He had a girlfriend who refused to believe he was guilty (or pretended to) until the very end. They had a daughter, conceived at the prison in Florida. She deserves her privacy, but I’d love to know what she knows about her father, what she’s like, etc.

  • Tom Furgas

    There is nothing to be baffled about. He was psychotic. A sane person does not accumulate 47 guns and explosive materials, smash out the windows of a hotel room and gun down innocent people. For any reason.

  • Mike

    These idiots had better invent a motive for the killing before the cognitive dissonance makes their heads explode. They will do anything rather than face the facts that the killer was an ammosexual who probably spent his life fantasizing about doing such a thing; that sometimes brutal violence is completely random, and in a free society there is always an element of risk; and that this mass murder would have been impossible if not for the NRA’s power to keep access to weapons whose only use is to commit mass murder.

  • crewman

    It’s more comforting to say he was psychotic than to say we don’t know, but the truth is, we don’t know his motive, and we might never know. Assuming that because we didn’t discover other motives it was therefore mental illness is not a justified conclusion, although it does give some sense of closure, and a direction to direct anger.

    When the gun fetishists were doing their open-carry events at Starbucks and other places I was confused by how they thought that was acceptable. They’re carrying the means to kill someone instantly from a distance and everyone else is supposed to be OK with that? You’re only as safe as they are sane, and they’ve already proved to be a little off by thinking they need a gun to go to a coffee shop.

    I thought it would be fun to go to one of those events and fondle a big bottle marked “arsenic” and see how they liked it.

    Why’d he do it? Cause he could.
    He was rich enough, beholden to no one.
    And bored.
    “So let’s go out with a bang!” (A lot of ’em.)

      I think he was a sociopath. He had the life history of a sociopath.

    Coverup much?

    Hate and rage can start very young and stay hidden till the very end. This does not have to be something the rest of us can understand. Dad abandoned him; never forgiven? I’ll show you, dad. Mom never understood him?… Who the hell knows. Wouldn’t be a problem for the rest of the world if he had to settle it with his words or his fists. Don’t be sidetracked from that.

      Psychopathy has a strong genetic component. Genes are usually stronger than child-rearing techniques.

  • Mike C

    Maybe he just went fucking nuts in a state where it’s easy to buy 14 semi-automatic rifles and a do-dad that turns them into a machine gun. Maybe that.

      a good working hypothesis.

  • boatboy_srq

    To paraphrase Lord Dampnut (among others): why have a personal arsenal and not use it?

  • DesertSun59

    It’s amusing, not?

    His ideology was quite clear. He used dozens of weapons and thousands of rounds to speak.

    He couldn’t afford to renew his NRA membership because he spent all his money on guns.

  • DumbHairyApe

    He was a gun nut and ammosexual. Seems like that’s “group” enough for me.

    • canoebum

      He could only get his rocks off at 600 rounds per minute. Shooting paper targets just didn’t get him there anymore.

      • DumbHairyApe

        And the pinnacle use of a gun is for killing, not hunting, and not target shooting. They’re marketed as devices for safety/security..implying that they’re used to shoot “the bad guys”. In fact, they often say “nothing but a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun”…or some utter garbage like that. SOOOO, it only make sense that if you’re in love with your guns and REALLY want to feel the power they can give you, your targets need to be real living ones. They are meant to be instruments of death.

        • DumbHairyApe

          And, for the record, I’ve owned pellet and bb guns as a kid and I have shot rifles/shotguns for target practice as an adult before. It was all fun, but I’m willing to NEVER buy a gun, and give up that right, forever if it helps make our society safer for everyone. My need for fun isn’t as important to me as is your life and your right to pursue happiness.

          I’ll stop buying knives and using plastic cutting tools if a madman and his fellow knivenuts manage to kill 60 people and forever damage 500 more with a knife.

          At some point, the Supreme Court will decide a case which establishes the rights of ordinary citizens to sporting and personal defense weapons (like a shotgun or small pistol), and removes the right to own weapons of war. It is clear from the 2nd Amendment that weapons of war were meant to be under the control of militias. Ordinary citizens had muskets and rifles; the militia, under the direction of professional officers and duly constituted authority, had the cannons and rockets. Weapons of war do not belong in general ownership among the civilian population. It was never intended that they would be. Also, 18th militias did not admit drunkards, criminals and the village idiot. They were deemed unreliable then, they still are today.

  • Cheo

    He did it cause he could. And that’s the most terrifying motive

  • So they have a new name for, “Lone Wolf”, (aka angry white guy), eh?

  • Jay Mills

    They just cannot understand why a white man would act out in such a way. After all, our culture and media does not promote gun violence or white/male privilege in any way. Nor do we condone actual threats made by white males while punishing women and minorities for even the suggestion of violence in a work of art. Yes, this is a real mystery because white American males have not been programmed the last 20 odd years to believe that they are somehow being persecuted — and need to “fight back”. Nothing could be further from the truth.

  • Michael R

    What part of
    ” if you have assault weapons why don’t you use them ? ”
    don’t these idiots understand .

  • Karl Dubhe

    Didn’t they make a movie about some white guy going ‘snake’? Douglas was in it, iirc. It didn’t show him shooting 600+ people, but it did end with the white guy asking “what, i’m the bad guy?”

    • Misutaa Roboto

  • Tread

    It’s looking more and more like this guy did this just because he wanted the thrill of hunting and killing other humans. I don’t think he had any sort of connection to anything, he was just a sick fuck.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    White loners who own 40+ guns, 12 bump stocks, ammonium nitrate and 3 houses:

    Not any kind of “group”. Nope.

  • ultragreen

    I know what the shooter’s problem is: right-wing derangement syndrome.

    • KIZMET

      That was my thought too! lol

    • leastyebejudged

      Based on what, though ?

  • leastyebejudged

    It’s funny to me how everybody here has to basically LIE about the shooter just to make your pitiful pathetic selves feel marginally better about shit.

    There’s still no evidence, people. DEAL with it. Stop being little lying queens.

  • BobSF_94117

    I guess they can’t say he had an unhealthy obsession with guns because that would offend people…

    Patsy??? First thing that entered my mind. Too much like Lee Harvey Oswald for me. Then we get forensic analysis of the gun shots indicating two shooters — one 400 yards and one 250 — based on basic physics of the gap in sound between bullets hitting the concrete and the muzzle sound. Then we get trauma docs saying there is no way the wounded individuals being interviewed would be in the kind of condition they are in if they had assault rifle injuries.

    And when did a 64 year old commit mass murder? And old guys would never carry more heavy stuff than absolutely necessary. And the more stuff you bring the more you are likely to get caught, especially if you need help.

    And how did the security guard who was hit in the leg manage to stay on his feet in a doorway cubbyhole for six minutes without bleeding out or falling given these high speed bullets tumble and blow huge holes in the body?

    No pictures of any one doing CPR and phone cameras were everywhere.

    The unanswered questions just go on and on.

  • NMNative

    And sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. It’s really quite possible that the guy was simply completely and totally insane. No ideology. No cause. No god. Just insane. It happens.

    • unsavedheathen

      I’m eager to see the post-mortem results, especially of the brain. The shooter’s behavior could have a pathological cause.

  • Regan DuCasse

    I think it blows people’s minds, that a single human being, can rain so much disaster on 600 people, in 20 minutes.
    It only took one shooter, and negligence of his activity, as it did with the Orlando shooter.
    And although some of these incidents have been fueled by ideology of SOME kind, racist…religious…
    What happens is more a conspiracy of apathy, of fear of looking like a bigot. Anti Muslim, or anti immigrant, or anti gun owner.
    It’s only taken a few people, to achieve terrible carnage.
    Two brothers who blew up the Boston Marathon.
    Only 19 men to murder thousands on 9/11.
    It’s only taken one man, to assassinate a President.

    It takes so few. It doesn’t take a conspiracy of many.
    Which is why, the lack of vigilance, the distractions, the lack of maintaining a chain of communication between state, local and federal agencies…is insufferably stupid.
    And now, for the sake of political correctness, are doubling down to do that even less.
    It doesn’t take many. Whether they are American, or from another country.
    We know this.
    But learned nothing.
    And clearly, care not to do a damn thing about it.
