Your Opinion: Motive for Vegas shooting

Your Opinion: Motive for Vegas shooting

August 8th, 2018 by Harold H. Horstmann, Lohman in Opinion

Dear Editor:

I call your attention to an 8/3/2018 Las Vegas Review-Journal article by Henry Brean and Rachel Crosby: "Final police report on Las Vegas shooting unable to determine motive" (www.reviewjournal.com/crime/shootings/final-police-report-on-las-vegas-shooting-unable-to-determine-motive/).

I wrote a letter published 10/10/2017 titled "Last hope for America" and the following is a paragraph from that letter: "It seems like no one can figure out what the motive was behind the Las Vegas mass shooting. If one would watch the video of the Big & Rich set closing at which they led the crowd in singing God Bless America and the entire crowd response singing with camera lights swaying it has got to be obvious! (www.breitbart.com/big-hollywood/2017/10/02/watch-big-rich-perform-god-bless-america-before-shooting-las-vegas-concert/) If there is anything that would prompt a politically motivated hater of America, I'm sure that would be it."

Another paragraph from letter: "As the perpetual conspiracy nut, I can't help but wonder how long it will take for the real truth to come out if it ever will. For the past eight years the number of unprosecuted 'alleged' crimes by the deep state bureaucratic swamp are well documented. To name a few, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS actions against the Tea Party and citizens, Susan Rice unmasking for wiretapping, Clinton corruption and emails and these are only the ones which some information saw the light of day. One wonders what else went on that we will never know about!"

It's amazing how the Mueller witch hunt is chasing anything and everything for over a year to get Trump with no evidence of wrongdoing and yet no one can find out anything about this 64-year-old guy who managed to get 14 guns to the 32nd floor of a hotel! If the FBI really cared about why someone would kill 58 and wound hundreds of patriotic country music fans who in all likelihood were Trump voters ("deplorables" per HRC) and launched the same effort as Mueller and his band of leftists, the motive and probable conspirators behind this massacre would be uncovered! I wonder if the conclusion would be the same had it happened at a Hillary Clinton rally?
