I had to laugh today when I listened to the sheriff officer who has been reporting on the Las Vegas shooting ever since it took place. After trying to convince Americans that there is no cover up to the investigation, he told anyone listening, to call his office if they had ANY information that might help the FBI.
Under normal circumstances, this would not be an out of the ordinary comment and wouldn’t cause one to think twice. But after hearing story after story of missing persons of people who were involved in the shooting, and now the unexpected death of one of the witnesses, who was only 28 years old and apparently died of ‘natural causes’, it would definitely make one think twice before offering any information to police.
For decades we have heard through the grapevine of cover ups that seem to escape the air waves. The key to a good cover up, is having the money to silence those you need to silence. If you don’t have the funds to bribe someone with, or the big bucks needed to commit a murder for hire, you end up getting sloppy, and that appears to be the case with the Las Vegas shooting.
The problem today, is everyone has a camera. They are everywhere, and especially in every person’s back pocket or purse. It doesn’t take but a second to switch a cell phone into camera mode, and you have become a witness to a crime. This has become a problem for authorities, though, who use that authority for the wrong reasons. For too long they have had a corrupt media to deceive the public in their favor. Take the case of the nurse who refused to draw blood on a comatose man whom was brought to the ER after a car accident. The insistent police detective became so irate that he arrested her, and it was all caught on camera.
That story gained national attention because of it’s nature, but also because the story didn’t add up. The way the media portrayed the incident was not the way it really happened. The police had engaged in a pursuit of a man who was caught speeding, and that man caused an accident with a trucker. The truck exploded and burst into flames, sending the truck driver to the hospital. The man the police were pursuing died at the scene. The media told a different story, leaving out the part that the man in the hospital was NOT the man they were chasing.
It made no sense why the officer didn’t just place the man under arrest, if that was a rule that would allow the nurse to draw blood. Then the nurse could have drawn his blood and everyone could have gone their merry way, except for the poor man lying in the bed with 3rd degree burns. But he wasn’t a criminal, and instead just an innocent survivor to a horrific accident.
Obviously the detective in the hospital feared the worst for his department as now they had one man dead and another lying in the hospital who might not make it. High speed chases are frowned upon in the city, and in many cases illegal. That detective wanted an innocent man’s blood so he could send it to a crime lab, where the results could, at a minimum, prove the truck driver had some type of drug or alcohol in his system, or if necessary, alter the test results to reflect just that. This would at least give the department a small alibi, although it would not take all the heat off.
It is sad enough to think that an innocent man, just doing his daily job, was involved in this type of incident. But to think he was about to be drawn into an investigation and made out to be the culprit is unconscionable. How do these people sleep at night, and do they not realize that these stories are what make the public harbor so much distrust when it comes to our police departments?
It is getting harder and harder for the corrupt and wicked to get away with their crimes in society. They certainly can’t keep knocking people off whom they think might know too much, just to hide their misdeeds. It doesn’t really matter at this point if the young woman who witnessed the Las Vegas shooting, who detailed her entire experience on Facebook which completely contradicted the authority’s accounts, died of natural causes or if they murdered her. If the 28 year old did somehow leave this earth by the grace of God, the public will never believe it. There are just too many flaws in their story. Now that people view the media as ‘fake news’, we question everything we are told. The day will come when those in authority, who are suppose to uphold the law, will find themselves the ones behind bars.
