During meetings with the undercover officer, Bolatete repeatedly expressed his hatred for Muslims and told the officer about a medical condition involving his kidney. The suspect said he used to a be a “Rangemaster” at a shooting range in the Philippines. Years ago, someone accidentally shot the suspect in the back while he was working at the range, resulting in the loss of a kidney, a criminal complaint said.

On Nov. 10, the undercover

Anomalies in Vegas Mass Shooting Call for Open Investigation

Rather than providing answers to what actually happened in Las Vegas when “lone wolf” Stephen Paddock allegedly fired hundreds of shots into a festival crowd from a hotel room window above the Las Vegas Strip, officials have been evasive, fueling citizen journalists’ investigations of the events. Why are officials apparently so uneasy with details surrounding this event, and why has mainstream media stopped covering what is allegedly the largest massacre by an individual in U.S. history?

By S.T. Patrick

Nearly two months after the Oct. 1 mass shooting outside of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the official explanation of what happened that evening has elicited more questions than it has provided answers. By mid-November, the increasingly rare release of news and information from Clark County and federal officials had critical alternative news outlets wondering how the deadliest mass shooting by an individual in U.S. history had disappeared from

A Grieving Sandy Hook Father’s Five-Year Battle Against Mass-Shooting Hoaxers

A year and a half after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, Lenny Pozner called to set up a meeting with Wolfgang Halbig. A 68-year-old security consultant, Halbig was the de facto leader of a community of conspiracy theorists, known as hoaxers, who claimed that the shooting had been staged by the government. To the hoaxers, the 26 victims — one of whom was Pozner’s 6-year-old son, Noah — were fictional characters.

Las Vegas Mass Shooting Victim Tina Frost Home for the Holidays …

The Maryland native who was shot in the head during the Las Vegas massacre walked out of a rehabilitation hospital Friday, according to her family. 

Tina Frost will continue outpatient basis. She “will have several days off from all of the doctors, nurses, therapists, dieticians, technicians and everyone else who knocks on her door ‘every five minutes,’” said a post from her family on a GoFundMe page that has raised more than $600,000 for Frost.

Frost was among the hundreds of people shot at a concert in Las Vegas Oct. 1. The attack was the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, killing 58 people and injuring more than 500.

Frost’s boyfriend carried her from the scene of the shooting to a truck. The truck’s driver rushed Frost to a hospital, where doctors had to remove a bullet, which was lodged into her right eye, to save

Study: Gun Sales Rise After a Mass Shooting, and More Fatalities Follow

One little-known fact about mass shootings is that they have been very good for the gun business.

Americans’ anxieties are stoked both by the random violence itself and the ensuing debates over gun control. Customers, including some who’ve never owned a gun, race to buy weapons they fear may be denied them down the road. Gun sales soar.

But the aftermath of a mass shooting does not appear to be very good for Americans’ safety. New research suggests that the increased availability of firearms after a mass shooting exacts a deadly toll of its own.

That toll falls heavily on children, according to the study, which links the spike in gun sales following a mass shooting with an increase in fatal accidents involving firearms.

To reach that conclusion, researchers zeroed in on the

Why another mass shooting?

A friend asked in a long discussion for my hypothesis on the increasing numbers on mass shootings in U.S. Here is my response.

My hypothesis on the increase in mass shootings? There is in increasing alienation and isolation in society. Mass killers are often young males who seem to have no place in society. They see themselves as marginalized with no way back in. Some of these young men drift into extremist groups like neo-Nazi groups. Some just take up guns and attack society that they believe has no place for them. Others end up with needles in their arms.

In Islamic countries, terrorist groups prey on the same alienated young males in their countries, telling them it is not your fault that you live in poverty. It is the evil West. We will give you a purpose and goal to aspire to in life.

We have reduced social services to
