I only read five different sources, but that was enough (who could take anymore?). Here is some of the poor reporting, or confusion over the official narrative. Take your pick.
Although the shootings allegedly began at 11:20 am on Sunday, June 8th, of the five sources, only the Las Vegas Review-Journal released a report that morning. The local CBS station didn’t post their online report until the afternoon; however, both updated their reports on June 10th. The Daily News posted the evening of June 8 and updated June 9. Several days passed before the Huffington Post and 7 News in Australia published their reports.
Confusion over the Walmart victim. From the two Las Vegas reports:
The woman shot at Wal-Mart had not been identified.
the two shooters committed suicide after shooting and killing a woman.
The Las Vegas Journal-Review later added:
This story has been modified to change the reference to the bystander who was killed inside Wal-Mart on Sunday. The victim was a man.
The later stories reported that the victim was a man. For example:
A man was shot and killed just inside the front doors of the Wal-Mart. His name has not yet been released.
However, the later stories added to the confusion about this victim. The early reports didn’t mention that s/he had a gun. From the later reports:
a civilian who was carrying a concealed weapon.
One unconfirmed report is that the two exchanged gunfire with a citizen who was carrying a concealed weapon…
the couple went to a nearby Wal-Mart, announced they were starting a revolution and shot a man with a gun who tried to stop them.
From the Huffington Post:
Walmart shopper Robert Wilcox, 31, was carrying a concealed weapon and confronted Jerad Miller. Wilcox was apparently unaware of Amanda Miller and when he walked by her to confront her husband, she shot him in the rib area.
Funeral plans haven’t been made public for Joseph Wilcox, 31, the Las Vegas man killed in the Wal-Mart.
Robert, Joseph – guess those names are easily confused. There are also problems with the name of the male shooter – Jerad, Jared in the same article. Guess they’re interchangeable.
The anti-gun Huffington Post called the gun-toting Robert/Joseph a good Samaritan. Are they trying to convince all concealed carry “good Samaritans” that guns are not useful in such situations and that having one on you may get you killed? By the way, the Daily News didn’t mention a third victim. This is allegedly the man:
And there’s this from the Australian report:
Police say two suspects shot two officers at a pizza parlor before fatally shooting a person…
As if the the officers weren’t people!
About those police officers. Perhaps obviously confusing facts is a new journalistic technique:
The officers were identified as Officers Alyn Beck, 42, and Igor Soldo, 32.
LVMPD Officer Alyn Beck, 41, and Officer Igor Soldo, 31, were killed today while having lunch at CiCi’s Pizza in Las Vegas.
That’s the Daily News. Those lines follow one another just like that. All the other sources said the officers were 41 and 31 years old. That should have been easy to remember. Notice that the Walmart victim and Jerad were also 31. The female shooter was 22.
About the police shooting:
Two Metro Police officers were killed at point-blank range while they ate lunch Sunday at a pizza restaurant in the northeast Las Vegas [sic].
One of them shouted, “This is the start of a revolution,” before killing one of the officers execution style as they refilled a soda.
Soldo — was refilling a soft drink when the female shooter approached him from behind and shot him in the head, killing him instantly. The woman then shot the other officer several times as he drew his pistol. Gillespie said the officer was able to return fire but it was unclear if he hit anyone.
One person shot one officer in the head. The second person shot the second officer. One of the officers was able to shoot at the suspects.
the shooters shouted that “this is the start of a revolution” before opening fire on the officers, and draped their bodies with cloth showing a Revolutionary War-era flag.
the suspects took the police officers’ guns and ammunition and covered the officers with a cloth that featured a Gadsden flag…One of the shooters reportedly said, “the revolution has begun.”
The couple left a swastika and a “Don’t tread on me” flag on the body of one of the slain police officers.
After shooting the officers, police say the suspects pulled the men out of the booth and laid them on the floor. They then placed a flag –- a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me” –- on top of Beck, along with a swastika. On Soldo, the two placed a note, police said, that read, “This is the start of the revolution.”
Has anyone seen the note?
They shamelessly told a witness outside the restaurant they just killed two cops and crossed the parking lot toward Walmart to continue their path of destruction.
Both shooters were reportedly carrying large duffle bags, and a bomb squad was called to the scene. It’s unclear what, if anything, was found in the bags. A fire department official said the bomb squad response was “a precaution.”
the male shooter, described as a tall white man, yelled “everyone get out” before shooting.
One unconfirmed report is that the two exchanged gunfire with a citizen who was carrying a concealed weapon, and that one of the shooters was injured.
Metro officers converged on the store and exchanged gunfire with the suspects. Minutes later, police heard more gunfire from the suspects. They believe the female suspect shot the male suspect and then turned the gun on herself. Both suspects died.
The female shooter then shot her accomplice at least once before shooting herself in the head, a law enforcement official said. The wounded man then shot and killed himself. Their identities have not been released by police.
…corrected earlier reports that the woman, Amanda Miller, shot her husband, Jerad Miller, when they were cornered in the back of the store. In fact, Jerad Miller was fatally wounded by gunfire from at least one of three officers who fired shots as they closed in on the couple.
The Huffingon Post writers were particularly interested in the deaths of the Millers:
Department officials released a 23-second store security video clip showing the last moments of the Millers’ lives, including narration by a store guard saying Amanda Miller appeared to shoot her husband as they lay on the floor.
Jerad Miller goes limp, and Amanda Miller then turns a handgun toward her head. The video goes dark as the narrator uses a police code, “405,” to say she shot herself.
The Clark County coroner has ruled their deaths a murder and a suicide.
McMahill conceded the chain of events was “dramatically different” from previous accounts provided by police.
From another HuffPo report on the couple’s death:
However, despite the narrators assessment and initial reports that said Amanda Miller, 22, fatally shot her 31-year-old husband before she committed suicide, Las Vegas Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said Amanda Miller did not kill her husband.
“None of the rounds that she fired hit him,” McMahill said at a Wednesday news conference. “She did not shoot him.”
According to McMahill, a forensic examination of evidence collected at the scene and during Jerad Miller’s autopsy has revealed he was killed by a police officer’s rifle.
The video released by police does not include the moment Jerad and Amanda Miller died, which authorities said happened directly after the clip stops.
The clip is available on YouTube. It’s 24 seconds of the two alleged shooters waving guns at each other. Here’s a still shot from it:
Here are some photos of the event. Notice how the Walmart logo is prominently featured in some of them. Also notice how the cops don’t seem concerned that there may be more crazed cop-killers on the loose. There’s also a lot of hugging going on. Very strange.
A little fact that doesn’t fit in with the rest:
An explosion was heard at the [Miller’s] apartment complex at about 9:30 p.m., but no information was immediately available Sunday night.
Then, there’s the schmutz. About the alleged shooters:
He said the man [Miller] appeared “militant,” and often talked about conspiracy theories.
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.
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.
Miller would walk around in camouflage with a handgun visible on his hip — neighbors said Miller openly shared his hatred of police.
They were weird people, Monroe said, adding that he thought the couple used methamphetamine.
Linking the Tea Party to the flag and, thus, the event:
The flag is named for Christopher Gadsden a Revolutionary War general who designed it. It has recently come back in vogue as an adopted symbol of the American tea party movement.
The flag was designed by Christopher Gadsden, a Revolutionary War general and statesman, in 1775. It was adopted as the symbol of the Tea Party Movement in 2009.
The HuffPo spin on the event:
McMahill said authorities are also investigating the couple’s presence in April at a standoff between armed supporters of southern Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and federal agents who abandoned efforts to round up Bundy’s cattle in a dispute about unauthorized grazing on public land.The Millers were asked to leave by militia members supporting Bundy after Jerad Miller made other protesters uncomfortable.
it would have been hard to pick Miller out of the sea of other extremists.
Jerad Miller was ready to share his anti-government views with just about anyone who would listen, views that telegraphed his desire to kill police officers and his willingness to die for what he hoped would be a revolution against the government.
Even if Miller had attracted the attention of law enforcement, authorities would initially have been confined to knocking on his door and starting a conversation to try to gauge whether he was a true threat. His opinions were free speech, protected by the First Amendment. And given limited resources and rules against creating government watch lists, it would be impossible to keep tabs on everyone who actively promotes beliefs that may — or may not — turn to violence.
So, the First Amendment is to blame for the alleged murder of two police officers, as are limited resources for, and rules against, creating government watch lists. These disgusting globalists don’t stop there:
“We can’t go around watch-listing folks because they voice anti-government opinions, because they say law enforcement should be killed,” said detective Rob Finch, who advocates using social media to monitor extremists in his work with the Greensboro, North Carolina, police department. “There are thousands of people out there that voice these things on the Internet every day. YouTube is filled with them.”
Why’d they ask for an opinion from a guy in North Carolina? What does he have to do with an alleged shooting in Las Vegas? They also quote Mark Pitcavage, director of investigative research at the Anti-Defamation League, “which tracks extremist groups”:
“It is good practice for authorities to learn who these people are because these are people seemingly willing to get involved in an armed standoff.”
This is what our nation’s fascist globalists think. However, it’s the Huffington Post. How many people read it? Few people take these types of folks seriously, which shows that Americans are more savvy then they seem. On the other hand, ignoring the insane globalists has put the country in the mess it’s in. They’re not shy about their plans, it’s just that sane people can’t believe others can really think that way. Nevertheless, two more quotes:
Even then, absent an overt criminal act, authorities would have been limited to a “knock and talk” conversation to see what threat Miller might pose. Federal guidelines restrict what kind of intelligence law enforcement can gather on suspected extremists, Pitcavage noted.
What’s more, the U.S. government had until last week suspended a domestic terrorism taskforce. It disbanded following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when the government’s attention shifted to foreign militants.
Authorities would also have been limited in their response if the Millers’ neighbors had called police, though apparently none was moved to do so.
In other words, they want their hands legally untied so they can burden the rest of us with more tyrannical harassment. These people are sick. See this example:
The horrendous ambush assassination of two Las Vegas police officers at a pizzeria and the killing of a good Samaritan by a violent young married couple with anti-government hatred again show that domestic extremists on the fringes remain a continuing threat in America.
In fact, in recent weeks the Department of Justice reconstituted a law enforcement working group devoted to addressing right-wing extremism.
There they go again, calling this particular concealed weapon carrier a good Samaritan. They’ll say and do whatever it takes to advance their oppressive agenda. They epitomize hypocrisy.
That’s more than enough. Who can stand to read any more of their insane ranting? The fascist globalists are truly insane and evil enough to stage events such as this alleged shooting for the purpose of controlling the rest of us. It’s a plan straight from the pit of Hell.
As with other events of this sort, I see no evidence that it really happened. I get criticized for saying that, but it’s time to turn the tables on the critics and let them prove that it did happen.
