She's alive but out of the country. They don't think she's involved. He killed himself before they busted the door down. He had at least 10 weapons. He checked in Sept 28. Sheriff's report.

As to politics, RS, you know pretty much where I am on things. MY ex-husband is a year or two younger than this guy, extremely right, very big fan of Trump, gun collector, veteran, etc.

In short, you should assume nothing, based on how someone twice removed from the guy thinks.

So you have determined this guys probable political affiliation by looking at his roomates estranged husbands facebook?

Why stop there. Why not check the estranged husbands mother? Who probably never met this guy?

I actually have a friend who has been married for 15 years and has not seen her husband in ten years (they are on facebook together) so if her current boyfriend did something similar you would check out the husbands facebook. What a fantastic detective you wpuld make


Because when someone is heavily into something, their spouse is likely into the same stuff. Someone who is a hardcore leftist is likely not going to get married to someone who leans anywhere right of center. They're probably going to share the same or similar views. Sure, opposites can attract, but that doesn't seem likely with religious or political views, especially if one is hardcore into something politically, religiously, etc.


Let's say some guy walks into a Jewish restaurant, opens fire, and kills a bunch of Jewish people. His best friend (a woman) is married to a Nazi. Do you think it's all purely a coincidence? Or perhaps do you think, "well, this guy's best friend is married to a Nazi....good chance she has similar views to the guy she married....and if she has those views, good chance her best friend has similar views, too"?

So yeah, I'd say I've determined the guy's probable political affiliation. Or perhaps it's just a coincidence and I'm wrong. I guess time will tell.

Don't you or didn't you consider yourself a republican/conservative? How have your views changed since you were married to him and how right on the politcal spectrum were you when you were together vs now?

They have located his roomate marylou danley in another country.

They dont believe she has anything to do with this now


In that case, the link between her and the shooter/shooting is gone and I take back what I said above about the shooter's likely political stance.

IMO, nothing the casino can do or should do, other than offer a statement of condolences.

It clearly isn't the casino's fault (unless something else comes to light). I think just about everyone sees that and wouldn't even wonder if the casino was at fault. As of now, it appears it's just a crazy guy who came up with a bizarre (to say the least) plan. I've searched through some articles and nothing is showing as far as his motivation for it.


Apparently his "roommate" is Marilou Danley, which is kind of odd, but whatever. Her husband (or ex-husband?) is Geary Danley. Looking at his facebook page, you see the pages he "likes" which are almost all left-wing pages. They include "Anti-Trump Army", "Thank you Obama", "Not my president", "Fight trump", a bunch of proud democrat pages, and all sorts of other leftist pages. Looking at his page, there appears to be hundreds of these pages and nothing that isn't a leftist page. As a reminder, this guy (Geary) is the husband of the chick (Marilou) who was the accomplice to the shooter (Stephen). Geary is NOT the shooter and AFAIK not connected to any of this.

However, just looking at that, it appears he's pretty far left on the political spectrum. Don't know about Marilou, but I'll take a wild stab in the dark and say she's likely far left as well, being his wife (or ex-wife?).

Granted, the far left stuff could just be a coincidence or completely unrelated. But again, I'll take a wild stab in the dark and say it may likely be a strong part of the motivation, if I had to guess. Combine this with it being a country concert (where I assume the attendees are likely more republican/conservative/right wing).....well to me, it looks like the motivation is political.


Again, no reports out yet that I could find saying what the shooter's motivation was, this is just my 2 cents.



Damn it this is the 2nd time a leftist went out and shot people in the recent months! Except last time was politicians this time it's civilians

Just woke up to the news. Obviously, I'm fine. I would like to thank and honor the LVPD for their bravery.

My heart goes out to the staff of Mandalay Bay, the first responders, and the attendees of the country music festival. I've been in that hotel with views of that venue, many times.

Politically, I will only say that there is very little anyone could have done to avoid this tragedy and incidents like these committed by the mentally deranged or political or racial motivations. We will learn much more information on the shooter, including his political motivations and any kinds of hints the public, police, and the FBI had on him.

You have the right to bear arms, including powerful arms. Had the guns not been available, it could easily have been a truck barreling down the street. Laws will not change as a result of this, and the strip hotels likely will not take any long term serious measures to prevent people going up to their rooms with high-powered weapons. Maybe they will have dogs sniffing bags at the elevators for guns.

In any case, a very tragic incident that already has become politicized on this forum. To me this is the cost of freedom.

You know damned well that if this guy had just shot up a Jay-Z concert the media would be wall-to-wall white supremacy right now.
