Mandalay Bay hotel worker warned of
shooter before Las Vegas massacre

Associated Press, by Michael Balsamo

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/11/2017 1:47:04 PM

A maintenance worker said Wednesday he told hotel dispatchers to call police and report a gunman had opened fire with a rifle inside Mandalay Bay before the shooter began firing from his high-rise suite into a crowd at a nearby musical performance. The revised timeline has renewed questions about whether better communication might have allowed police to respond more quickly and take out the gunman before he committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Worker Stephen Schuck told NBC News that he was checking out a report of a jammed fire door on the 32nd floor of Mandalay

Comments:
This was probably the maintenance worker who ended up on the 32nd floor near the hotel security person who was shot by Paddock.

Paddock apparently began shooting at the crowd immediately after he encountered and shot the unarmed security person. The maintenance person was nearby, in the hall. Armed hotel security arrived within minutes. Police followed. The shooting had stopped. (Paddock only fired on the crowd for about 10 minutes.) The delay after that involved evacuating hotel guests on that floor and the ones above and below it. Then Paddock’s suite door was breached and he was found to be dead.

We stayed at the Mandalay Bay several years ago. They had terrible security. Anyone could go up the elevators. When a thuggish looking guy was banging on our suite door in the middle of the night we called hotel security and they did nothing. We´ll never stay at that place again.

It helped me to see the layout of the room about halfway down in this article...

https://cnwnews.org/what-we-know-about-the-las-vegas-shooting

If they locked the door to the stairwell it´s no wonder he panicked. He must have had it cocked open for his escape.

Still more to learn. I´m glad the guard´s story was corroborated.

Just as I thought. Hotel security and any police nearby would not have been allowed to enter the room and stop the shooter. The SWAT Team had to be assembled, transported and
"would have been formulating the best response" to the shooter. By the time they get there, it´s all over.

That´s one of the best arguments for an armed populace. Courts has ruled repeatedly that police have no responsibility to protect you. They are there to arrest the criminal after you have become a victim.

The whole story sounds fishy to me.

Could there have been some help getting all the guns and ammo into the room by some hotel personnel??

That sheriff seemed mighty cranky at the last news conference he held. I know he is tired but something just ain´t right here in my opinion !!!!

Yesterday, as a measure of appreciation and thanks, President Donald Trump invited U.S. Coast Guard members from Lake Worth Inlet station to play golf at Trump International West Palm Beach. Seventy-five members from the Coast Guard took the opportunity to play. President Trump organized a luncheon in their honor and closed the course so the USCG could hold an impromptu tournament.

This is a major victory. After years of hard work in federal court, Judicial Watch has forced the State Department to finally allow Americans to see these public documents. It will be in keeping with our past experience that Abedin’s emails on Weiner’s laptop will include classified and other sensitive materials. That

Former US President Barack Obama made a barely veiled attack on President Trump in a BBC Radio interview conducted by British Royal Prince Harry, apparently politicising the otherwise neutral Royal Family by involving them in Domestic U.S. politics. Speaking on Radio 4’s Today programme about handing power over to President Trump, the Democratic party figure told the prince — who guest edited Wednesday’s episode of the BBC radio show — that social media was “corroding civil discourse”, urging people in leadership positions to use it with caution. Prince Harry´s "interview" with @BarackObama was an outright attempt to politicise our Monarchy

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Friday that it was holding a Hong Kong-flagged ship and its crew members for allegedly violating U.N. sanctions by transferring oil to a North Korean vessel in October. The Lighthouse Winmore is believed to have transferred about 600 tons of refined petroleum products to the North Korean ship, the Sam Jong 2, in international waters on Oct. 19, after leaving the South Korean port of Yeosu, a South Korean Foreign Ministry official said. South Korean customs authorities boarded the ship and interviewed crew members after they returned to Yeosu on Nov. 24. South

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: The stench of failure hangs over Mr. X’s White House. The people know it, judging by the opinion polls. Corporate titans know it and whisper disenchantment with a fellow conservative. Washington knows it when an Administration official calls the budgeting process ”an unmitigated outrage” and when Mr. X’s closest friend in the Senate pronounces the President ”as very close to set in concrete.”Mr. X’s loss of authority only halfway through his term should alarm all Americans. The economic nostrums he brought to office have not had the predicted effect. Only by recognizing his

The FBI admits the Left’s electoral collusion conspiracy theory is unsubstantiated but still refuses to distance itself from the discredited Russia propaganda dossier Democrats paid Fusion GPS to create to undermine President Trump’s candidacy. Testifying behind closed doors in Congress the week before Christmas, embattled FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe reportedly “declined to criticize the dossier’s 35 pages of salacious and criminal charges against Donald Trump and his aides, but he said it remains largely unverified, according to a source familiar with ongoing congressional inquiries.” According to the Washington Times, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence chaired by Rep.

Although religious in origin, New Year’s resolutions call believer and unbeliever alike to be honest with themselves concerning the value and character of how they spent the past year. As everybody knows, we all fail consistently enough to satisfy our own standards of conduct that the annual custom of resolving to live better always finds ample material for its pangs of guilt, resolutions, and promises. In further reflection of human frailty, people are notorious for listing the ways in which they will improve themselves, only to have done with the half-hearted attempts after just a little while.

Sharyl Attkisson, an Emmy-winning investigative journalist, wrote in the Hill, "10 times the intel community violated the trust of US citizens, lawmakers and allies." Her list began with President Bush 43. And it began before 9/11. In fact, it was one of his first acts as president.

No matter where you stand politically, a growing body of facts raises the question: Is there systemic corruption or misfeasance at work inside America’s intelligence agencies? By that, I don’t mean people stealing money. I mean officials who are stealing our privacy — using the tools of intelligence-gathering and law-enforcing, which are meant to protect Americans, to instead spy on them, to gather information that isn’t the government’s business (at least not without a court’s approval). And, in some instances, it appears, to punish or silence those with whom they disagree — personal and political foes, in and out of government

The party that controls the White House usually loses many congressional seats in the next election. But the leader of the Gingrich Revolution of 1994 -- which gave the House of Representatives to Republicans for the first time in 40 years -- believes Democrats may pay a big price in 2018 for all the Fake News against President Trump in 2017. From Gingrich: After members of the elite media have spent two years savaging President Trump, lying about Republican legislation, and reassuring themselves that Republican defeat was inevitable, the size of the GOP victory in 2018 will be an enormous shock.

(Video) - President Donald Trump has now spent almost one-third of his time in office at his own properties and has played more golf than President Obama over the same period. The president has visited one of his properties on 112 days of his presidency, according to a count NBC News updated Wednesday in the midst of Trump´s 10-day Christmas vacation at Mar-a-Lago—his private club in Palm Beach. U.S. taxpayers paid $6.6 million in airfare alone this year for Trump’s frequent trips to Mar-a-Lago, according to U.S. Air Force records. Trump also spent part or all of about 40 days at his golf course in Bedminster, N.J.,

Two professors from San Diego State University claim in a new book that farmers’ markets in urban areas are weed-like “white spaces” responsible for oppression. Pascale Joassart-Marcelli and Fernando J Bosco are part of an anthology released this month titled “Just Green Enough.” The work, published by Routledge, claims there is a correlation between the “whiteness of farmers’ markets” and gentrification. “Farmers’ markets are often white spaces where the food consumption habits of white people are normalized,” the SDSU professors write, the education watchdog Campus Reform reported Wednesday.

Melania Trump is writing her own fashion rules as the most glamorous first lady in U.S. history. Fashion observers say Melania is doing for sleeves what Michelle Obama did for the sleeveless trend. “If there has been a single defining characteristic of Melania Trump’s public profile over the past year, it has been her relationship with sleeves,” the Washington Post’s observed. “Trump’s sleeves are the mark of a fashion aesthete who is willing to cast aside practicality in favor of line, silhouette and proportion.”

Actress Jane Fonda, who celebrated her 80th birthday last week, says that growing up she never expected to reach 30. "I never pictured 30," Fonda told People magazine in an interview published on Wednesday. "I assumed I wouldn’t live very long and that I would die lonely and an addict of some sort. I didn’t think if I did live this long, that I would be vibrant and healthy and still working. I’m grateful," she added.

Updated | The historic Jackson magnolia has been on the south facade of the White House since the 1800s—making it the oldest on the grounds. But Tuesday, Melania Trump reportedly made the decision to have it removed after tree specialists determined “the overall architecture and structure of the tree is greatly compromised,” the report stated, according to CNN. CNN obtained documents from specialists at the United States National Arboretum, which determined the magnolia tree must be removed. The tree is “completely dependent on artificial support,” the document read. The document said, “Without the extensive cabling system, the tree would have fallen years

His intervention comes just days after the Archbishop of Canterbury, who leads the church, used his Christmas address to target so-called “tyrannical and populist” world leaders – widely perceived as a dig at Mr. Trump. Adding to the politicised onslaught, Mr. Bayes told the British left-wing Guardian newspaper: “Some of the things that have been
