Stephen Paddock’s neighbor believes this act of violence must have been a set up of some kind because the men’s character doesn’t add up.
Las Vegas just experienced the largest mass shooting in U.S. history after 64-year-old Stephen Paddock used automatic weapons and rifles from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Casino to rain down bullets on the 20,000 people attending the Jason Aldean concert. As a result 59 were murdered with hundreds more injured and Paddock shot himself before SWAT arrived at the scene. Inside of Paddock’s hotel room was a visual not easily forgotten as weapons, ammunition and blood covered the floor.
Despite the evidence, Paddock’s alleged neighbor decided to call the Michael Savage Radio show in order to inform the public of the man he knew and how this whole situation is so far from his gentle character that some kind of set up has to be the real cause for such devastation from a man who wouldn’t harm a fly.
“I was his neighbor for about 7 or 8 months in Mesquite, and I can tell you 100% that this is not that kind of guy,” said Rick, the shooter’s alleged neighbor. “I was there working and saw him probably every other day on my way home. He used to sit with his garage open…and he would wave all the time when I was going by.”
“I was in the Marine Corps,” Rick says. “We used to go to that same bar after work and have a few drinks and play video poker as well. He’d sit there too and we used to talk about nonsense stuff…we talked about guns and all that kind of stuff, he never even told me he owned a gun!”
Savage asks if Paddock expressed any political opinions during their discussions. “No sir, not a thing,” Rick responds. “I’m not a big conspiracy theory guy, but it don’t sit right.”
Sadly America and the families who have now out lived the loved ones lost will never really now the whole story and that is always the hardest part, not knowing… why?
