We aren’t into conspiracy theories so much. But maybe you believe aliens created the world, Elvis is still alive, or the NFL actually conspired against Kaepernick. We won’t judge you. Publicly. That being said, the facts about the recent disappearance of the Las Vegas security guard sound like a conspiracy theory. The heroic security guard who was wounded during the Las Vegas Massacre (see Trump Awards Huge Gift to Las Vegas Police Department After Shooting and Video: Leftist Professor Pushes Crazed ‘Theory’ About Las Vegas…) has been missing for days. Not to be confused with the NFL’s ratings.
The unarmed security guard approached Stephen Paddock’s room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, distracting the gunman and potentially saving lives.
With a gunshot wound to his leg, he helped point officers to the gunman’s location and stayed behind to evacuate hotel guests.
He was hailed a hero by many, even as the story changed. Twice.
So far, so good. Sounds like a hero. Right?
David Hickey, president of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America union, said it had been four days since he last saw Jesus Campos.
Hickey said he was attending a meeting with MGM representatives in one room of the suite as Campos waited with a security guard — hired by MGM — and another union member in the living room.
When the meeting ended about 2 p.m., Hickey said Campos was no longer in the room.
He hasn’t been seen yet. Not even by his neighbors. He seems to have disappeared. Like Hillary’s dignity.
Campos had been living in a quiet residential neighborhood in northern Las Vegas. On Sunday afternoon, a man sat in a white truck parked outside the house where Campos is said to live. The license plate on his truck was hidden with a white towel.
He said he had been hired to guard the house and prevent the news media from entering the property. He declined to say who had hired him.
Friends, co-workers and neighbors who know Campos described him as a private person. Still, Jaime Ruano, Campos’ neighbor, also wondered why the security guard has apparently disappeared.
Reasoning through all of this mire, one could say Campos merely needed a break from the bustle of life in order to cope with the tragedy he witnessed. But why the security guard? Why so many changes in the timeline of the Las Vegas shooting? Why does Amy Schumer wear tight clothes?
That last one is supposed add levity.
Again, we’re not in the business of conspiracy theories. But this does strike us as rather odd. Were not saying Campos is an accomplice. We’re not saying he’s on the run. We’re not saying much of anything. Just that as every new detail emerges from this case, it only gets stranger. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. A little Shakespeare to break up the strange.
Regardless of the Las Vegas case, guns shouldn’t be banned. So stop saying it.
