This past weekend we were told that a ‘shooting spree’ occurred about five miles from the Vegas strip, a place better known for its seedy sin-filled entertainment, mafia-run blackjack tables, high-roller roulette and closed-door prostitution. The Casino-laden city appears to be a permanent stage for criminal activity of a new sort…
The highly publicized Las Vegas shooting that involved a husband and wife that had apparently filled a shopping cart full of weapons and ammunition seemed to be shocking at first glance, however, after it was revealed that the couple walked some four miles to take the lives of two metropolitan police officers at close range inside CiCi’s pizzeria, something seemed amiss as there wasn’t a clear motive.
The Midwestern couple had been staying with their close friend Kelley Fielder for two weeks prior to the seemingly random attack, after suspiciously making their way across the country from Indiana. According to reports, that same couple entered a nearby Walmart on foot and were found to have engaged in a shootout with Joseph Wilcox, a man who attempted to stop the estranged couple using his legally concealed firearm before police could arrive. The fact that this part of the story was noticeably absent from any of the early mainstream reporting suggests that this didn’t fit in with the biased media narrative on active shooter events and shootings as a whole.
