1:36 pm

1:39 pm
since money. there have been many questions for us to release a timeline from today. we have one to 5 for shots fired by the suspect to t last shots were for june. so g officers arrive on the 32nd floor, 280 security officer tales filipinos, or is, he was shot. and here's the exact location of his room. $1120.00 officers in the suspects room. they observed a suspect down on the ground and said that metro timeline of the shooting is not correct. i am very well aware of the m g m statement provided yesterday. i agree with their statement the timeline associated with the original shock. mr. tampa has changed. metro now says campus was shot closer to 10 o 5. aligning with the em. gm's time table released yesterday, which says campus was shot at nearly the same time, or within 40 seconds of the mass, shooting outside. not the 6 minute gap given earlier this week by police
1:40 pm
ah, cases, campus was given an amount somewhere in the neighborhood of $300000.00 for his silence. he was also gifted to condos, and those come to the tune of about $2500.00 a month each. so as $5000.00 a month that has gifted him in the form of a residence. and that came about the time that he was supposed to be on 5 different television shows, doing interviews. suddenly he canceled shortly before the interviews were to occur and said, he just showed up on the allen show, with a cane and a lamp. he shot through this door right from behind the door. i didn't know how he was shooting out of all the investigative reporters that we have that can ask hard questions. i mean, ellen degeneres, who happens to have a whole line of slot machines that are sponsored by the m g m resorts. wow. so and i mean really he saved your life and he said the else or the woman that came out of the door to you,
1:41 pm
stop everything and m g m resort and mandalay bay did everything right. he just threw him softballs in like she was telling him what happened. there was a metal bracket holding the door in place. right. so what we're talking about here just everybody is clear. okay. so the only dam interview that he did was on a t v talk show. you just want this to be over. so you're talking about it now and then you're not going to talk about it again. and she managed to keep him out of contact with the media, and they made sure that instead of hearing the facts from his mouth, we heard the facts from their mouths. but we are getting a better idea of what may happen to the 1 october shooting site, m g m resorts and metro are reportedly talking about the construction of a swat building on a portion of that site. you would figure be a conflict of interest to give response, investigating such an enormous diphtheria known as las vegas village is valued at about $30000000.00. we don't on her resignation by you guys,
1:42 pm
are doing this humongous year that's worth over $30000000.00 in this entire event investigation happened in an election year where it jo lombardo was campaigning to continue to be in the sheriff. he raised over a $1000000.00 las vegas boulevard. stand up and say, this is where we're going to put our money. because this is who we want to have a letter in the neighborhood more than a $1000000.00 into sheriff jo lombardo so nobody else is going to win if they try to run behind them, because there is a power machine behind a minute. the gaming industry, he's got a 1000000 bucks to spend on tv, all the hotels one because he's going to do what they tell them to do. i don't want anybody assuming that they are on say, fi, you know, say that one of our hotels, almost every press conference, if you saw one figure. and i was steve says leg,
1:43 pm
he didn't see. governor sandoval there. he didn't see even carolyn gumi of the mayor there, but you always saw steve's this lag in the background. he was on every national television set getting face time using this as a springboard for his political campaign. with 2021 rapidly coming to an end to this time for some reflection. what will we remember about this year? how did our lives change? also we look forward to the new year. what does 2020 to have in store for us? will we be living in interesting cards in colorado became kind of a test bed for medical and then later recreational marijuana and it started with something so innocent. i was wanting to socialize. everybody does it? so i cannot. and then it just keeps going and going and going. i'm just going to do
1:44 pm
it was yeah. and then it's, i'm just going to try this one said never do it again because they want my phone was on and i'm right on inside. ok. and you surround yourself with people who are encouraging you to do it not to stop or it felt like my life was over, jumped officers off balcony and died. mm. he knew he just couldn't stop with a
1:45 pm
sins grandstanding on this very strong movement. views the elevator and then they weren't following through with him. i'm a journalist with the las vegas tribune and i tried reaching out to the vegas strong resiliency center. couldn't get anybody on the phone that wouldn't answer emails. i couldn't get any answers on where this money had gone. if the money had gone anywhere, i was told i was gonna get back to an amount of money and i didn't, you know, we can suffer. they didn't get it christmas. my son's birthday followed up. he didn't get any birthday presents and his only rough rest of the year for me. i fell helpless and there was any i could do to support my family. that's definitely taken . a child can change my life as a mother and i thought i let my kids down. i do, i feel like i let them down. but they understand and they, they get in, thankfully my kids are very, very great. they're amazing children and they get it. and they're, they're still there for me. there's
1:46 pm
a lot of broken people that haven't got the hell they needed. my managers daughter was there, she was injured. you had to go back and jo wilcher after it happened. she couldn't stand up for work. she was a shot at the f l. s, and they fired her because she couldn't work. she lost her own divorce. see they got to very strong on the fire. try to be on medic was all time was all in the we all got moodle. i want to get coffee in the window of dunkin donuts and they were selling vegas strong t shirts out of the window. everybody had their hands in this big marketing ploy. the people that were victimized continue to be victimized because they have not received the funds. they could provide for my team, we were, we lost everything, you know, we can do one of, you know, people, you know, money. i know christmas, nothing radar didn't want to be home because also medicating those heavily drinking
1:47 pm
and i would never, ever allow myself to be that way. ever prior to rule and i'm okay one minute in the next. you know, i'm not being that can district and i talked to my sister by and she told me to pray and just hanging. it's not anything you know, you'll never know what happened back there and we'll never know that's doing that. i feel, you know, it's dark and i said by my phone number a few minutes later and somebody was making on my door scheme and me and they need to go down and see rose in my life. kids are on and like i let them down in, it's just so hard when i see it all and they're not part of their help at all. nobody wants to do anything, every shout for how many times a lot of
1:48 pm
products for everybody really it's donated for all over the world. money for the shooting. there's never been any distribution for receiving what money or media is pretty silent about the whole thing. they're letting people forget about it and i don't think we're willing to let people. there's always somewhere that a politician can blame and sicily. i will say that while i was the fundraiser, but i'm not responsible for distributing what the hell you're not. because if you're not going to distribute the might the victim why collect in, i think the community tober 1st of the tragedy, but just select, he saw it as an opportunity. every time there was an event that involve vegas. he was there walking around, making certain that he got a disconnect today,
1:49 pm
a show decided itself and it never showed before. and i'm really proud. last day, i saw him jumping in front of cameras to show his support and to be real emotional about this horrific tragedy that happened. but i didn't see him dispersing any money. he collected a lot of money for a raise over $10000000.00. and here it is on my building. it's over 10 feet long, and it's up there on main street. i've been a business owner, downtown las vegas for over 10 years. and i just, i love my community and i thought we are helping and we are not good. i don't know where the amount is out, but it's not getting to the people that need the victims aren't getting it. the victims are missing the rat. they're missing their mortgage payments. eventually the funds were distributed, but they weren't distributed at the time that the people needed it. they needed those funds early on. that's when the bills are racking up. that's when the rent due the car payments to the insurance to do that. is when they needed the help, they didn't get it. and jim emailed me shortly after the shooting, and they said that they realized what happened that my it was horrible and they'd
1:50 pm
like to offer me a 10 percent coupon on my next day. and one of their property is because obviously a 10 percent discount in the hotel room is going to just make everything go away and make all the victims. forget the hell that we suffer. that night. here for the check into the with my recollection, we have information on the 25th. i told you previously the 28th for you. got the timeline change and 3 times only because people were calling out things he has a valid ma'am. yes ma'am. that's not how we conduct a service. okay. that he can find presented with the question with the ivr for you on it. that's not how i conduct press conferences, man official, like he's please stop asking your question. he got really angry and that lady was never allowed in the room again. and then shortly after they did, here's the timeline that matched the independent journalist findings. sometime late
1:51 pm
october, i was here and i noticed that there is a camera right here. amount of outside of this business. and i was wondering actually caught any of the footage from people coming through here. so if i could take a look at and see if i could access the information. and actually, you know, the videos on fox news to me and drag what appears to be a fallen victim into the parking lot. the business owner who possesses this tape tells us that no long foresman officer or government investigator has ever seen the video. or even asked to see if you would think that the l b, m p, d, and the f b. i would want every piece of evidence that they could possibly get their hands on . we have hundreds of agents covering every facet of this investigation. nothing will be overlooked. cheerfully. bartow promised a comprehensive investigation until the damages of the stephen pad a crime scene. and we still haven't received the results of this comprehensive investigation. so i decided to call into a radio show in which share from bartow was answering questions involving the
1:52 pm
images. man, you promised me interesting. and then you know that outcome was going to that day and you're waiting, frankly, not for any answer resignation. we try your role and to ground. there we are. larry will do interior and who source of the leak was. we have a department with over $600000000.00 budget. yeah, they couldn't figure out who really images from us cellphone. imagine that in my opinion, share from bartow is line, and it's certainly not the 1st line he sold it. i want to over for the 1st time used to see the last name to say community. yes. is it a safe term community? yes. during your phone bar is reelection campaign. a violent crime report was released to show that the violent crime rate in las vegas had been reduced when in fact it didn't take into account the 58 that we lost during 1 october. and there's also 2
1:53 pm
other homicides. did it also didn't take into account, so you had 60 homicides that were not included in this report. so the crime rate actually was highest in las vegas history. if you include the 60, did they so conveniently left out. why didn't papa form a police officer, deputy sheriff and criminal investigator? i spent about 20 years in the casino industry as a director of security. and i'm also a journalist. i was listening to the radio static swat off, so he by hancock out on the radio. he said we had an actual discharge, but none of that was released publicly. joe bought a new saying that the actual discharge. so i broke the story about a month later in the board. busy post examiner and a lady came out and said there was an actual discharge. it kind of expose the fact that he hadn't been entirely truthful. and that was when a lot of people started asking questions about why we weren't being given the whole truth accidental discharge,
1:54 pm
excuse me. he was tell him to jump and he paid papa. he's a liar. there is no conspiracy between the f b i between l. m. p and the m g m. nobody is attempting to hide any story. when you try to hide a breeze conspiracy theories dictated breeds. people say, why is ely? and he's a liar, the covering this up, the coming that up. if there was a conspiracy, there was conspiracy to cover up negligence and competence. one of the storage, the title was joe bottle liar and competent. both the word and competence has been brought forward and i am absolutely offended with that characterization shut down. all the press conferences, shut the look out of the information and the story just started to go away. and then shortly after that, you have to radio encryption where the public no longer allowed to listen to the
1:55 pm
police scanners out of hearing on january 23rd of august, metropolitan police department, the public ability to listen to what's happening in the city. and they're getting cold out on a daily basis for the inconsistencies. and they kept changing the stories. and i think probably all of that was based on the fact that people could check up by listening to the radio even compared to the stories you can see for yourself that there were until the truth. i major news outlets have filed low suits, asking one force me to turn over police records related to the 1 october shooting. this is according to the eli times, which is one of the plaintiffs for half a dozen media. all those got together lawsuit together to sue the las vegas mesh, paul police department, over them refusing to release these documents that the court ordered them to release. the supreme court ruled that all information was supposed to be given out
1:56 pm
immediately. so sure, when bartow decided to charge nearly half a $1000000.00 to get this information. another legal maneuver on his part to delay the release of the information. i wanted to schedule that las vegas metro police can not charge the media high fees to get records on the 1 october shooting at the behest of the court system. we were mandated to provide buddy warrant camera footage and document footage as part of a public information request. the las vegas special quality employees from started releasing data, but only bits at a time or from bartow cherry picked which information you wanted to have come out before the election and which information was gonna come out after the election. and there was not a new sure been down with jo lombardo was re elected as las vegas metro, tedious sheriffs and june of 2018. it wasn't until after that that he chose to release videos of his officers cowering in the hallway, outside of steven products,
