Here comes a video captured by an amateur-citizen-journalist or whatchamacallit, some unique footage which according to its “maker” proves that the Las Vegas Police Department and the FBI are not telling the American public all the details about the Las Vegas massacre. And that begs the obvious question: why? Are they lying or are they incompetent?

The story goes something like this:  the guy who uploaded the video below is Benjamin Franks. On October 1st, Benjamin and one of his friends were heading back to their hotel (MGM) when they observed a strange commotion at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue.

Some fifteen minutes later, after they’ve arrived in their hotel room, Benjamin Franks recorded a video depicting a total of seventeen (17) ambulances seemingly recovering/removing bodies from Hooters. Hooters Casino and Hotel is 0.8 miles/1.1 kilometers away from where the “official” shooting took place, i.e. where the Route 91 Music Festival was hosted.

The guy in the video says (24 second mark) something like:

“They are just pulling so many bodies out of that Hooters. I don’t know if people are dead — I don’t know if people are just injured — they just keep pulling’ them out though […] something definitely happened at Hooters though.”

It must have happened at Hooters dude because they are all showing up there. It looks like most of them are at Hooters.”
However, it must be said that Hooters was being used as a triage area for paramedics. Ambulances then came to that area to bring victims to the hospital. Here’s an article explaining it. And here’s a clip with a SWAT team entering Tropicana after the Las Vegas strip shooting.
Tropicana and Las Vegas Boulevard is simply where the LVPD set up their command center in the minutes following the shooting. Victims were being taken to that area and triaged.

Either way, check out the video and make up your own mind.
