6:30 pm
the fire in 1314. molly's way. now, why would there be instances during the volleys were structured. if you have multiple shooters, there's no reason to stop shooting. the. the fact that we've got the actual features of las vegas with the different buildings nearby, lots concrete and sidewalks and so forth, that tends to lead to a lot of acoustical reflection. so the reporting of a gun fired in that environment like this because the racial going across the venue and the bouncing off of the building. so sounds like it's coming from your actions the that can sound like there's many more shooters just because you're hearing one sounds several
6:31 pm
times from these different services that i got to go there is more people going oh people are saying there are shootings down the strip what was really happening was someone was in a hotel and some person random blood all over them. and someone asked them what happened. and they said there was a shooting. next thing you know, they're calling 911, there's a shooting at new york, new york, or new york. there's a shooting at bellagio as a shooting at traffic at all because these people are interpreting what they're seeing as the shooting happening right then. and there in front of the was just a person running in the door, this money from running from this point, trying to find out where they can find the officers don't know what's happening out there where they were told. okay, they're trying to investigate and find out what's going on. and if somebody runs up
6:32 pm
to them and says, hey, you know there's a shooting moth, tropicana or there's something going on at new york york, they're not in a position to judge how valid that claim is. they're gonna have to now report that back and they're going through the recordings, insert the characteristics of the way forums and from the examples i've looked at here, there is a single shooter involved in this incident. i have an good footage from 7 am that morning until 12 pm the next day from 6 different camera angles. the attorneys asked me to analyze this footage for them. i can zoom in on any of these camrys that i want, plus combine that with all the audio footage that i've got enough of all of this cell phone cameras that people use the venue. the shooting happened from one location right there. from that room right there. will i'm 99 percent. sure. let's see. did this by himself completely and totally doing
6:33 pm
this was nothing for steve accumulating the guns, getting the guns and tele tip from ken a 100 parks and he took a go jolly when you fire a weapon which your doings are causing a minor explosion inside of a barrel minor explosion inside the barrel creates and generates a lot of heat and he is transferred out into the barrel. then you can see that the current just because of the adjusted casings and leaning the rifle against the actually was burned. that was going to happen when you put them in your rounds through a barrel 100 rounds the barrel is going to eat it up and after we can't touch it, that's why wearing gloves who are the most efficient way to handle it. instead of changing our barrels is to change our weapons to one more extensively in the money spent over $100000.00 in the weapons. so steven winnie trying to weapons, he would expand only in the nation, dropped a weapon into make sure that he in the middle of the room. and then he would serve
6:34 pm
hiring in with the new with this is they are 10 that data use, you know, the fuel tank, fuel tanks or need to take abuse or shooting at 50 yards here and you didn't put a debt and that steel. so imagine a 1000 yards trying to penetrate a piece of steel. this is going to be, they are 15. all right, it's going to be the one that he shot the people with see how fast and, and you, you can be really super easy to shoot, doesn't take much skill, having an outdoor open venue with that. many people in one location fences all around it are kind of crowd in there. yeah, they're sitting ducks. i mean it's like shooting fish in a barrel. they have b, i put out a 3 page, comprehensive report, 3 pages. i've had in custody. petty larceny reports that were over 3 pages. it was
6:35 pm
a misdemeanor offense with one person being arrested. i can't tell you the absurdity of that from if you look at on parkland and they're shooting at the martyrs dome and douglas high school were 17 kids were murdered. they put out a 400 page comprehensive report, and they studied every aspect of that thing to prevent it from happening again to find out what the things were mass. these are these. you could flam on the desk. you know what i mean. it in a causal, you know, cause an earthquake. this is just a little painful. you know, just i, this is if we're dog or by go away. if they don't do a proper investigation, then it can happen again. and that's what makes people less safe. when sheriff lombardo holds his final news conference, there are less and a handful of reporters to show up. small crowd today is shooting, went from being that biggest casualty event of the year to be in a small news conference at even the local journalists finish up for today. we will
6:36 pm
release our final criminal investigative report on the 1 october mass casualty shooting. i know and believe there was only one suspect, who killed 58 people and injured hundreds more were considered this investigation complete. i hope that the conclusion of this investigation provide some answers and some closure. we have been able to answer the questions of who, what, when, where and how what we have not been able to definitively answer is why steven perry committed this. they have to say no motive because they can't see that the casinos drove him to it. you know, and because that's not really good for business, i don't think me the date is shooting revealed where the l v m p d really is. and now it's part of the stand machine. mm. the
6:37 pm
actually cover up was there and competence. and then negligence and the handling of the investigation, the destruction of the crime scene. turning over his body, ransacking the room before the crime scene analyst went in, they are then you have the accidental discharge tax room. and they tried to cover that up. the fact that it took over 70 minutes to get into panics. room and that the officer that could have stopped at all. basically chickened out. there's nothing justifiable about what he did. stephen patted was a monster. go, what do you call accompanied as soon as the victims, in a case like this were 58 people died. and jim resorts assuming the victims of last year mass shooting and las vegas, claiming that it has no liability for the deadly attack. m. g m is asking a judge to dismiss any lawsuit against stemming from the october 1st shooting. i was just like, why would they do the victims their joint,
6:38 pm
a concert in their properties. they were getting shot out from the hotel room. that's a part of their property. now they are being sued by one of the largest companies in america. forgetting shaw, disgusting, outrageous. those are some of the common words people used along with a hash tag. boycott m g m. as it was trending on twitter. in more than 30 years of practices that are most reprehensible conduct, i've ever seen by a defendant m g m says in part quote, years of drawn out, litigation and hearings are not in the best interest of the victims, the community, and those still healing that is the biggest, baddest, why i've ever heard, if you make so public, say that your suing people for their families who are dead or seriously injured to me, that's a p r disaster. as an attorney, i try to look at the m g m lawsuit on emotionally. so i had a little bit of
6:39 pm
a different perspective than maybe a lot of victims do. damn shem. legal strategy heavily relied upon a federal act that was passed shortly after 911. it's called the safety act and the safety act states that if a terrorist event happens, that private company is not liable for what happens at the terrorist attack. as long as they have hired a security team that has been previously approved by the department of homeland security, many people have filed suit against m g m. instead of having to fight each of these lawsuits individually, m g m decided to file one lawsuit against all the people that had sued m g m. and all the people that mtm thought went to mtm and make a statement that they were not liable. it was stephen paddock and it was the victims who were at fault here. they not only named the estate of people who were killed my and victims that they also named the children of people who were killed
6:40 pm
that night. some as young as age sex. so they sued 6 year olds in an effort to clear down in, ah, 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 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 for why can't i and then it just keeps going and going and going
6:41 pm
. i'm just going to do it was. yeah. and then it's, i'm just going to try this one said that never do it again because the one wife was in the morning. i have you right on inside. ok. and you surround yourself with people who are encouraging you to do it and you not to stop. or it felt like my life was over, jumped off balcony and died. mm. he knew the just a things that have happened in the world were being done by people who had a great vision of how society could be better. but that great vision is typically the last time that she had representation is not real. it doesn't take into account any of the complexity of reality, the subtlety of how various and complex people are put them into categories says
6:42 pm
this love is bad, we'll get rid of them. you know, and change is an organic process. change is an evolution, and the opposition is not between the status and everything must stay the same and everything must be radically changed. and radical change is not the way that that kills. ah, this isn't an orphanage. oh, even suzy. children have been kid for the fountains. house a knack or chicken mom much mom with much and he's got a nice mini goal when she only middle the issue. ah, shannon is violet, mom, lines violet. but dana,
6:43 pm
mom yes. my today's with me. okay. allow me a couple hours left me a note on your bill is to me on a new description i shall i can lend dean with i think oh
6:44 pm
ah, a brief literally stated that we the victims who are affected by the us who are injured by the us who are killed by this, remain in the line of fire. we were inside and jim's venue. the venue that didn't have enough exits, the venue were bottlenecks. if those few exits were occurring in the venue in which they have shown a spotlight on us. so that he had a better view the venue where i watched a woman die long before she knew that there even was applying a fire. she didn't even know that a shooting was going on. and now her parents are told, oh your daughter's dead. well, it was her own fault. she remained in the line of fire,
6:45 pm
m g m a mandalay bay claim that they didn't know that this could happen yet. years prior. mandalay bay had discovered in the room of one of their guests. a snipers must. the guests had brought many guns. he was aiming those guns down the strip. thankfully, he was stopped. and the fact that in their brief, they say they had no way of knowing, is a pure why just goes to show how much disregard they have for the victims of what happened on october 1st. mm. on october 1st of 2018, the one year anniversary. and gm had said that they were going to darken the marquee, if you could come out and have a candle, if you want, and memorialize the fall on, you know, as a one year anniversary. so i'm out there and i'm live on facebook from the mandalay bay and we're waiting, waiting, waiting. there's all these other people around me and didn't do anything. learning
6:46 pm
on the muse. was this real big song happy and you know, i was like, we're going to slap in the faces this days after the city marked the number, 2nd anniversary of the route, 91 festival shooting. there's a settlement between victims and gm resorts are trying to hide behind the safety act and act in which the federal government would have actually paid out all of these claims. and because it wasn't ruled a terrorist act by the f b i for online security, they couldn't use the safety act. this settlement will provide fair compensation for thousands of victims and their families. las vegas lawyer robert edward of edward adams represents about 2500 of the 4400 victims. in the case, the total settlement amount is expected to be approximately $735.00 to $800000000.00. now as stated in this needs to be made clear. m g m resorts has insurance coverage for $751000000.00. m g m is only on the hook for about
6:47 pm
$49000000.00. slap on the wrist when g and has done here through this process. and through this association represents the highest standard of corporate citizenship i have ever seen. last year, i was the loudest voice in the country and same negative things about m g m. when they sued a number of the victims, robert eglin attorney for over 2500 claimants. in this case stated that the $800000000.00 settlement would be good for everyone. but what he didn't say is that he stands to get over a $100000000.00, in this case, making him the true winner is a lifelong exam and i cannot tell you how crowd i am n g and just say, you know that a company, they have the maybe the last loyal. ready customer the other half and now they are the most wonderful corporation he's ever seen. and he went from their largest
6:48 pm
critic to becoming their biggest kisser. is he their lawyer? ours, because he sure as hell was an act like it. keeping this out of the courts by settling with the victims allows m g m to hide the fact that their greed and incompetence may be part of why this happened. they were the ones with the terrible security, allowing him to take 20 plus weapons up into the room. there in actions is what cause a lot of the desk that we see in this case, the failure on the security failure on surveillance. the former m g m director of surveillance told me over $200.00 cameras, were off at the time in the mandalay bay shooting. and i got a recording of him october 1st and then we had over 200 cameras. not working, get security negligence cameras were out. they were untrained and some of the equipment and the protocols and how to do the different systems and that came out
6:49 pm
in their reports to the police. and i did stories on that. so there was no way that you can go to a court room. that's why agree to the settlement. i think that there was a clear intent that this will never go to trial. and i had a problem with up just from day want us or the truth is to be told if we did go to trial, all of this would come out. and that's exactly what they didn't want. and when they chose the mediator, they chose jennifer toggling yadi. this is a judge. he stepped down a year early from her retirement to actually go work for a company called a r m. and when she goes to work there, what is her 1st case that she's handed? oh wow, look, it's an m g m case. and who is her father? m. gm's, vice president, head of security, safety and surveillance. none other then george todd lady. there is a conflict of interest there because her dad is the v p of security. miss tattle, adi, retired from the bench at 19 years. instead of going that one more year for retirement . judge cavelatti, i believe,
6:50 pm
was brought in to save m g m and her father's. it's an incestuous thing that happened in vegas. they all protect each other like brothers and sisters. this case should have been in the billions. you have a case of someone trying to put on the illusion that everyone is happy when in reality, the only people to win in this case, where the lawyers and m g m. and that's it, to take was a $100000000.00 and divide it up with around $4500.00 people. and it's not a lot of money. neither is the $49000000.00 that m g m a corporation, your gross is over $10000000000.00 a year has to actually pay out of pocket. so m g m one, but the victims in this case last i do love my town, but i'm starting to see the reality of things since october 1st on what vegas really is. i had been at the city hall part and i saw
6:51 pm
a bunch of what it looked like sticks behind a screen of offense. so i went over there to look and it was the crosses from the las vegas massacre there were thrown in a giant pile in the sun behind a dumpster. and that's where they sit all year. and then grades are, is, comes into town and he displays them at the las vegas. welcome sign. today's the 2nd year anniversary are, and i'm down here letting these families know that i remembered this year. what happened was the county asked him to move all the crosses to be displayed for only 2 hours at the county government center, where no one would have ever seen them. and he, they only wanted them. slade for 2 hours. that is the right thing to do. to spend one full day out of my life to remember what an one year 2 years ago, he didn't back down. he decided that he was going to display the crosses on the astro turf and then the county came in and said that the guy there was a pedestrian safety issue. and as you see there goes one of the crosses and
6:52 pm
families are taking them. and that's why i'm here, we're going to try to give all of these out today when they want to go away and it shouldn't, we should never let those crosses be forgotten. nobody wanted to 1 october event to happen. but when it did, i think there's people who found a way to make it work for them to turn a tragedy in an opportunity. 1 october was almost like a show, a show. and once a stars with our show guy, what they wanted, they didn't jr anymore, and either today is keep the money dropping off the tables, keep the slot machines, go and keep the registers, renting $50000000000.00 worth of tourism that comes into our community. the hotels are val. the occupancy rate is great. the prices are reasonable. nothing's better than las vegas. march 2020. the pandemic happens. corano virus shuts down the entire country. it makes shift more of are being built to handle the crush of
6:53 pm
bodies. the usually packed vegas strip. now, a ghost town. this after several employees on this trip, tested positive for coven 19. it has been more than a month since las vegas was shut down by the corona virus with the number of confirmed cases continuing to climb. though in nevada, you've got over a 1000000 people who have been infected by those fibers in united states, and the death toll in the united states from corona virus now stands at 57000. today the presidents briefing, we were told again that the number of american desk could reach as high as 200000 las vegas. mary carolyn goodman is calling the shut down of the state. total insanity, vis, shut down, has become one of total insanity. she also compared code to die t to the flew and other viruses who died and made somebody the consummate dr. open the city, the most contagious contagion that we've seen in decades. and then you have a mayor who doesn't care. $2300000.00 people in southern nevada and we had
6:54 pm
a $160.00 deaths isn't now you know the whole year of socialists and say that you would have had far more without it. how do you know until we have a control group, we offer to be a control group. so here is caroline goodman, offering the lives of the vegas residence. to be the control group, i offered to be a control group and i was told by our statistician, you can't do back. and anderson cooper was sitting there in disbelief at the amount of that it was screwing from this woman. this is in china, this is a vegas, nevada. wow. okay, that's really ignorant. if you can't figure out how to do this safely, why as mayor of a city that you are responsible for the people safety. are you calling for something that you have no plan for? how it would be done safely, name that or figure it out that 2nd job. that's so let me and there's job. do you don't believe there should be any social distancing? you don't believe it was. i believe there should be. of course,
6:55 pm
i don't know how to do that in a casino. that's up to them to figure out get people dropping dead all over las vegas and you have a mayor who doesn't care all she cares about cash, cash, cash, money, money, money. we were not broken and we need to get back to work, keep the registering and keep the slot machines doing in vegas is a money machine is a huge cash register that is ran by people who don't care about people's lives being lost. it was evidenced by what happened during the mast shooting were 50 people lost our lives and is evidenced by what carol and goodman did on the scene. an interview with anderson cooper, the deadliest match shooting, and us history became one of the most forgotten to the american public. barely remembers that it happens. that just shows you the power of money in las vegas. it's a town that was built by the mob built on corruption and with corporations in
6:56 pm
charge. it's just a different kind of corrupt phase was a different town. i mean, don't get me wrong. the mob went away. angels, these guys more savages. but when the town was less corporate, it was a much better channel. i think they're challenged out what it should be and what it was green is, what's ruining las vegas. where else is that happen? where an entity would see the victims because they dropped the ball all in las vegas. the corruption came when the mob left as far as i'm concerned. ah ah
6:57 pm
ah well happy new year special kaiser it board with the one and only gerald salenti or it's data of the transport task man, you know stuff i was diagnosed with cancer in 2000 lives when the doctors told me the cancer was incurable. i knew i had to make a change, so i decided to travel to one of the most toxic places in america. florida, went to florida's biggest industries and best sequence is possible and the biggest layer is $85000000000.00 industry. is mosaic, schneider reports of millions of gallons of contaminated water, now flowing into the florida aqua for a chronic. oh, well, you know,
6:58 pm
i don't want to hear that word poets, but that's what it is. i'm in 2013 my all our family dog, my brother, who was 21 years old, myself in my father were all diane rob problem. did they brought with wow. yeah. hold on. i'm a good plan, right? yeah, yeah. maybe they'll actually learn that more help is more important than join me every thursday on the alex simon, sure. but i will be speaking to guess what the world politics, sport business, i'm show business. i'll see you then. oh, oh yeah. it has to be rash,
6:59 pm
to be able to afford enzyme, and find the luxury that for sure. despite having the most expensive health care system in the world, we have poor life expectancy. we have higher infant mortality. we have more deaths from treatable causes. so americans are suffering every day from it. it's as if these people don't count as how, how they can choose your customers and dump a sick tone also a to satisfy their wall street investors know parents that have to see what i saw if you're denying payment for someone's care, your make life and death decisions and determine to get to live and who dies to me that's best getting away with murder.
