  1. Very nearly a clean, non-conspiratorial police event. I thought they would sweep the room and say "found him. Its suicide". But nope… good old American police let off a couple of rounds first and then question themselves at the end saying "Did we shoot him…"

  2. Scared cats discussing for hours before entering the hotel room while people were getting sprayed. They should have sent the marines in there they wouldn't have hesitated. In war you have to improvise. Peoples lives don't have hours or even minutes for these cats to leisurely enter
    The way they did. Nervous bunch lol. 2 marines would have scouted the area, set up perimeter, identify target then eliminate threat. We don't need these nervous boy scouts hence more lives were lost that day

  3. There were several instances of 100+ round continuous bursts from the shooter… yet the largest magazines he had were 60 round casket mags. But go on, believe the main stream media.

  4. It was all fake the police have no clue what they are doing. And who points the camera to his face such professional behavior.
