Neighbor Of Las Vegas Shooter Claims It Was ‘A Set Up’

A man who says he was a former neighbor of the alleged Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, has claimed that Paddock could not have carried out the massacre and that it was actually a “set-up”.

The man claiming to be Paddock’s neighbor, a former Marine who called himself Rick, called the Michael Savage radio show, a local radio station in Las Vegas and said he has been Paddock’s neighbor between December 2015 and June 2016 in Nevada.

He said he used to see Paddock every other day and that the two would go to a local bar and play slot machines.

“I can tell you 100% this is not that kind of guy,” said Rick

“He never even told me that he owned a gun,” Rick continued, adding that Paddock had not expressed any religious or political affiliations or views during their conversations.

“I’m not a big conspiracy theory guy, but it don’t sit right,” said Rick, before claiming that the whole shooting was a “set up” and that Paddock’s body may have been left in the hotel room as other assailants carried out the shootings.

Info Wars reports:

The caller mentioned how some people in the crowd were warned 45 minutes before the shooting that they were going to die, suggesting that this was evidence of a wider plot and not a “lone wolf” attack.

As a firearms expert, he also questioned the lack of flashes coming from the hotel windows where the shooter was supposedly firing from.

Rick said he had already contacted the Clark County Sheriff’s Office to relay all the information he knew.

Although the claims are intriguing, it is important to remember that after virtually every terror attack and mass shooting, friends and neighbors express shock that the culprit would be capable of carrying out such horrors, with some outright denying it to be possible.

If Paddock was planning such a sophisticated operation and hoping to evade detection, he would not be blabbing details about it to his neighbors.

However, the neighbor’s claims are certain to attract more attention given that no specific motive has yet to be uncovered for the shooting.

    These poor people were like ‘fish in a barrel’. They were herded into a locked pen and when the shooting started, someone turned on the stage lights ON THE AUDIENCE.

    How does someone that died in 2013 get the blame for this shooting, when people have said it was multiple security
    guards doing the shooting?.

    • Trina Kaye McCormick

      Someone that died in 2013? Link please

  • rezaul karim

    Why all such killings are shrouded with mystery? Was it a set up? No one that knows this person believes he could do it, even his own brother was dumbfounded.
    Then obvious question, if he didn’t do it who did this heinous crime & why?

    • Ron Wheeler

      Ask yourself these questions:
      Who is head of HLS?
      Who stands to profit from these security mandates which will soon come into law?
      How was it that September 11, a John was warning about and incident call, project
      Why are there testimonies of multiple shooters, but the so called main stream media is covering this up?
      “An Australian man who was staying in the room next to Stephen Paddock on the 32nd floor in the Mandalay Bay has also confirmed he witnessed multiple gunmen involved in the Las Vegas attack.

      ‘There were multiple people dead and multiple shooters. I was just hiding waiting for police to come get us. I got outside safely and was hiding in bushes,” Brian Hodges told Australia’s Courier-Mail.”

      Dude, you need to spend time away from that fake news T.V. and get to doing some searching.

      If it was a setup, and the Gov’t was involved, then you will not get any other information other than whats been offered by the FBI. But, if more information and personal videos etc get published, then all conspiracy theories are off the table. It’s very possible that Stephen was a patsy, being that every witness to his life doesn’t reveal any Mr Hyde personalities. Having a few pistols and shotguns in his arsenal is way different than all the semi’s he littered about in the hotel room, that’s major money and quite the felony alone.

  • Paul Adams

    Someone, anyone, please show me the surveillance videos outside Paddock’s room before and after the shootings, or videos of him carrying all these weapons up the elevators or unloading them from his vehicle or of him dead in his room or of LVPD blowing out his wall to get in. And how about the witness accounts of multiple shooters? Who is interviewing these people? Until then, this is a massive cover up orchestrated by the commies who want to take our guns away so they can crush us.

      I live in Australia and any time I hear about incidents like this, I feel so grateful that I our Prime Minister responded the way he did after the Port Arthur massacre. I feel safe. I dont need to worry that some random, sane but unstable person can shoot me if I pissed him off, just because he has a gun. I can see how so many simple conflicts could end in death unnessecearily.
      The beauty is you dont need a gun if not everyone else has one.
      But its seems like it would be impossible to get all automatic, semi automatic and unregistered guns off citizens. unless there is a consistent public attitude that welcomes the legislation.

        Hopefully Australia will never be invaded by China….

        • Steven Padgett

          That would be a long boat ride….

      • Hates Liberals

        Wow! are you delusional.

      • Zoe

        When law abiding citizens guns are confiscated only the criminals will have them.

      • John Silver

        Port Arthur is the most obvious false flag in history. We have some of the worst civil rights and privacy laws in the developed world and brainless sheep like you congratulate them for it.

        Just today they passed laws to take every license and ID photo on record and use it for their facial recognition software. All in the name of ‘anti-terrorism’ even though there is absolutely zero chance of what happened in Vegas ever happening here and facial recognition wouldn’t have prevented anything, and everybody is too busy patting ourselves on the back about how great our gun laws are to notice.

        We Australians are sitting ducks with no way to protect us. We can’t even protect us agains t home invaders then we are charged for crying out loud. You wait and see once Antifa and Muslim attacks start increasing. We will have no defence. The only thing helping us at this moment is that our population is not big and manageable opposed to US’s and our police is on the ball and not overworked. (US police is also on the ball, they just have more to deal with at this stage with countries on their borders where criminals and guns can come through.) Aus is an island and people can’t get here easily unless they go through strict border control, which makes smuggling more difficult. So a complete different ball game. Keep your guns US; protect yourself. Every dictatorship started with the population being disarmed first.

      They are probably infringing more on your freedom and disarming you so that you can’t defend yourself against the peaceful religion worshippers who are doing / planning what they like behind the safety of the closed doors of worship house that the law enforcement refuse to randomly enter, search and find.

      • Paul Adams

        what an intellect! Where have you been? You need to run for some public office…where you can be controlled, blackmailed and bribed.

        • Tricky6

          My bad, reply was aimed to Lexx in Australia.

          The peaceful ones don’t get disturbed, planing whatever in their houses of worship. Police told to stay away and leave them.

          Look at online videos of Britain First (which is an actual political party) demonstration walks. The walks are organised and flanked by the police in case of trouble.
          The “peaceful religion” worshipers turn up prepared and cause the trouble and can be seen on camera footage running alongside the procession shouting hatred, swearing, spitting saliva, running in physically assaulting the Britain First party members who often don’t strike back. The police don’t arrest the “peaceful religion” worshipers as hundreds would then descend on the police station and cause a scene.

          The media would then magnify this more and make the authorities look bad like they can’t deal with it and it plays into the peaceful ones hands who cry out RACISM at every opportunity.

          However if a Britain First member strikes out to even defend him/herself, they get taken out and away and end up prosecuted at court with the same video evidence that earlier showing the “peace loving” ones starting the trouble.

          The party leader and deputy have been unfairly detained / imprisoned on many occasions.

          The party (like others previously formed) has been branded nazi, fascist, racist etc etc so much that sadly many Brits have been brainwashed by the media into believing this is the case and unacceptable and the government try closing them down.

          They come to Britain to “peacefully” expect us to live like christian people would if they were back in their country where life was so bad for them.

          We are expected to be the minority. These trouble makers do not want to integrate in anyway with British customs and values and even want their own justice system which allows safe passage from their crimes.

          Americans must fight to retain their constitutional rights at all costs or your “American Dream” will be a living hell for your children and theirs.

          Brits have no guns. We get treated worse for using our hands and feet in defending ourselves anyway.

    While it is a natural response to focus on the evil presenting in this latest massacre … we are at war with evil … and we must gear up to prepare ourselves for the next incarnation of evil in our midst. Whether this shooter ( or shooters ) was linked to ISIS .. or not …matters not. ISIS already has assets in place in Las Vegas for some time now… because it is an iconic target. Again…gear up and be vigilant.

      But I am receiving emails on Take Action against gun ownership. This is a effort to remove gun ownership.
