Las Vegas Shooters: Possible White Supremacist, Bundy Ranch Militia, And Anti-Government Quacks!

Apparently some neighbors of the Las Vegas shooters heard from the Las Vegas shooters, they were anti-government and they had mentioned a shooting spree. Yes, you mental process went to the same place as did my mental process. Where is the individual responsibility to report such twerps? Especially during times when people act-out their rhetoric.

The details of the Las Vegas "Start of the revolution" start to emerge. Internet media is reporting virtually real-time. Despite the fact CNN is airing reports from Las Vegas, we are amazed at the intentional surface-only cover of the shootings. MSNBC may have programming reports via their live broadcast, but the MSNBC webpage is void on any mention of the shooting. 

I will state right up-front, "There is nothing at all in the news that surprises me."

The Daily Mail.CO.UK. headline, sub-headline and lede deck.

Married white supremacist couple yelled 'this is a revolution' as they shot dead two cops eating pizza and a female bystander, then draped the bodies in 'Don't Tread On Me' flags before suicide pact
  • A husband and wife in their late 20s stormed a North Las Vegas pizzeria on Sunday morning and shot dead two police officers, one in the head
  • They then ran to a Walmart where they shot a woman dead before taking their own lives in a suicide pact
  • The killed police officers have been identified as dad-of-three Alyn Beck, 41, and Igor Soldo, 31, who had a newborn baby
  • White supremacist paraphernalia including swastikas was found in the young couple's apartment during a raid after the shooting
  • Neighbors described the pair as methamphetamine users obsessed with conspiracy theories
  • The couple openly talked about killing police and going underground before emerging 'when the time is right,' said another neighbor

Talking Points Memo Livewire

Neighbors in an apartment complex where the two suspects lived said they “had a reputation for spouting racist, anti-government views” and boasted about their gun collection, according to the Las Vegas Sun. The newspaper reported that residents of the apartment complex who spoke about the suspects also brought up the couple’s relationship with Bundy Ranch, where the two bragged about being present for the standoff between militia members and the Bureau of Land Management. 
Another resident of the apartment complex, Brandon Moore, told the Las Vegas Sun that the couple had also spoken about their plans to commit a mass shooting. 
"They were handing out white-power propaganda and were talking about doing the next Columbine," he said.
   Neighbors Say Vegas Shooters Were White   Supremacists, Bundy Militants
The Review-Journal, too, got a similar sketch of the murderers from neighbors at their apartment complex:                                                                                                                   Several neighbors identified the man as Jared, while one called the woman Amanda. 
Like many of the neighbors contacted, Krista Koch said she didn't know the couple's last names. She described them as "militant." They talked about planning to kill police officers, "going underground" and not coming out until the time was right to kill. 
Brandon Monroe, 22, has lived in the complex for about two weeks. He said the man who lived in the apartment that was being searched often rambled about conspiracy theories. He often wore camouflage or dressed as Peter Pan to work as a Fremont Street Experience street performer. A woman lived with him, Monroe said, but he didn't see her as often. 
They were weird people, Monroe said, adding that he thought the couple used methamphetamine.
Let's end this piece with a re-post from Crooks&Liars. Yet, we must offer a comment about this morning's CNN coverage of the shooting. I have sat through 1.5 hours of coverage and have yet to hear any reporting as posted on this page. No mention of a Bundy Ranch militia activity, no mention of the commonly used Don't Tread on Me Flag, no mention of reports the shooter often spewed white supremacists views.

If CNN has a business model that includes a form of sanitizing news, it is a credible new course?  Fox News is reporting with mention of the shooters as Meth tweakers only.  Why does CNN strive so hard to follow a path set by Fox News? Why does the network clearly avoid mention of militia, Bundy's Ranch and white supremacists "barkers?"

A quick review of the MSNBC webpage yield no mention of the shooting and its various fissures into militia, Bundy Ranch, anti-government and racism.

If people get the preponderance of their news from television, we have to question why a major news network would fail to report the full story.  We are what we know, if we do not know facts and details we as living beings make bad choices and associated bad decisions.  How many of you felt Cliven Bundy's militia supported tax evasion was a noble cause? Did you think the people on the overpass with scoped rifles leveled on BLM officials and Las Vegas Police were "cool?"  Did you get a nice picture as a passers-by?  


Las Vegas Shooters Said They Were Kicked Off Bundy Ranch (via
By Susie Madrak June 9, 2014 6:36 am - Comments The two shooters draped the bodies of the slain cops with a "Don't Tread On Me" Gadsden flag, lately favored by the Tea Party and right-wing militants. As the details come out about the Las Vegas shooting…

How about the people who simply listened to the racist/anti-government anarcho-terrorist and failed to report? Let's consider a scenario with one of those people shopping at the WalMart store and riling the shooters. Would that have been a case of inadvertent suicide? 

UPDATE: Washington Post reports Nazi items lying around shooters' apartment.
