Vegas Shooter Complained About Loud Country Music On Night Before Killing Rampage

In another bizarre detail about how Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock spent his last days at the Mandalay Bay resort and casino before launching the worst mass shooting in US history, one unidentified law enforcement source told CBS that Paddock twice called hotel security the night before the shooting to complain about loud country music emanating from the floor below.

Albert Garzon of San Diego said that security guards asked him to turn down music he was playing in his suite on the 31st floor at around 1:30 am Sunday, a little over 20 hours before the rampage on a country music festival. When different security guards paid Garzon another visit about his music a half-hour later, he turned it off.

A staffer at the hotel also reported that Paddock acted abruptly with them over some other issue, Milton reports. Apparently, Paddock had a history of being rude or overbearing with hotel staff. A former executive casino host at the Atlantis Casino Resort and Spa in Reno said Paddock had a "god complex" and expected quick service without regard to how busy the staff was at the time.

All the evidence uncovered by police so far suggests that Paddock started planning his rampage weeks in advance, even booking rooms near music festivals in other cities like Chicago and Boston earlier in the summer. He also booked a room near the Life is Beautiful music festival in Vegas that took place in late September – though it’s not clear whether he planned massacres at any of these sites.

Police also found dozens of guns in Paddock’s Mesquite, Nevada home, and explosives in his car that suggest he was planning a larger attack. Shortly after the rampage, police discovered 1,600 rounds of ammunition in Paddock’s car, along with fertilizer that can be used to make explosives and 50 pounds of Tannerite, a substance used in explosive rifle targets.

Police announced Thursday that they had found a Hyundai Tucson SUV they had been searching for as part of the probe while executing a search warrant at Paddock’s home in Reno, which he shared with his girlfriend, Marilou Danley. It wasn't immediately clear if the car was found on Thursday or earlier in the week when police searched the home and found several guns and ammunition.

Police still haven’t pieced together a motive for the shooting, and law enforcement sources have lamented that the 64-year-old gunman lived a “secret” life that may never be fully understood.

One scenario that I don’t hear mentioned often is Paddock’s history with Lockheed-Martin. They are the Pentagon’s #1 supplier. He worked for them. They do much of the top secret, latest tech weapons. LM has been doing experiments on mind control since the 70’s. With the odd and uncharacteristic behavior of Paddock and his past with LM, who’s to say he wasn’t under some sort of mind control. Here’s one site that covers some of it; of course the CIA had a program on mind control going back to the 50's;

Well, compared to all the implausible conspiracy theories we've read, I'd say that if he was pissed enough to call security twice about the noise one floor below, he would be acting logically, albeit extremely, to take out his guns to quiet down the loud noise at the concert across the street. Wouldn't be the first time neighbours somehwere trash it out viloently about noise issues.

Sometimes all you can be sure about is that you know you are being lied to. What is the truth here? Who can tell. But we can tell when we're getting BS, the smell gives it away. Sometimes I wonder if there is some sort of contest going on at the Ministry of Truth to see which of their minions can tell the biggest lie and get away with it. So far no one has won the prize and the whoppers keep getting bigger.

Bullshit he did not work at JPL. He got his pilot's license for single engine fixed wing flight in 03 good for 5 years he never renewed it in 2008 so his license lapsed. There's no loss of background he had listed 27 residences he had no record with law enforcement but plenty of mortgages on various apts residences tax returns what the fuck are you babbling about?

Not to discount any "mind control" scenario as not true or even possible, I think it's too easy to use as an excuse to explain away reasons that are a lot more valid and doable...even preferable...I'm going to go with the "Who is the angry Leftist nut in the Hotel window?", answer for $200.oo, Alex.If there is a mind control aspect, it's built on top of this likely, and very plausable, reality.

You don't hear it mentioned because you are not right. Paddock worked briefly in the 80's as an accountant for a company that eventually was bought by Lockheed Martin an event that occured after he was gone from said company. You don't need govt clearance to be an acct at an aerospace company to begin with much less he never was employed by LM. Psychopaths are cold and unfeeling end of the story. MK Ultra had nothing to do with Lockheed Martin they ran Skunkworks at area 51 doing experimental aircraft. My neighbor was the test pilot for the LM Blackbird at Area 51 that's from the horses mouth.Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird - Wikipedia

Gaius Frakkin' said, "The only narrative that's ever made sense is that he hated White middle America for unleashing Trump.Odd, that narrative doesn't make sense to me at all.  The narrative that makes most sense to me is that the Deep State was involved in this, used him as a patsy to YET ONCE AGAIN, advance the gun control agenda.I'll bet anybody here on ZH $5000, that we'll have another mass shooting within 1 1/2 years and it too will be used as kneejerk justification for another round of gun control legislation.  Hell, I'll give you 2 to 1 odds.  That being the case, you can tell from the desperation that gun control isn't advancing fast enough for the deep state.  With all the evidence that we've had to date and in particular since Obomit was elected, why would anyone think that creating circumstances to advance gun unthinkable?Here is an article about FBI cooperation in conjunction with "catching terrorists" from the NY Times.… you want to tell me that its unthinkable that the Las Vegas shooting wasn't planned and executed by more than Paddock?

Y'all need to just calm the hell down and be patient!As soon as they're done doctoring up all of the security footage and figure out how to not let this crisis go to waste, they'll give us every single detail that we need to swallow their undebunkable narrative.Until then, questioning authority is just going to cause others to question authority... and... well... carry on!;)

It's not about that, they only need to convince the majority. It always has been like that. Do you really think they care about a few ZHgers who see throug them and their motives. How many people have really supported the Nazis in Germany in the early 30's. You only need the majority do nothing, a few that follow and the rest is history.

Exactly, very poorly organized and executed which means DESPERATION.  Desperatte for what you ask?  That should be obvious, to advance gun control one law at a time.Feinstein had introduced a bill on Wednesday to ban bump stock weapons which is impossible unless she had prior knowledge of what was going to be in thaat room.  So, what should make them so desperate to have gun control ASAP?  There is a reason for that too.  I'm surprised the news hasn't made it to ZH yet, but its out.  A lot of insiders for MGM, owner of Mandalay Bay had sold stock before this event.  A whole SLEW of them.  And yes, a lawsuit has already been filed by one of the concert goers.
