The strange coincidences in the Thousand Oaks shooting

In March 2018, Business Insider called Thousand Oaks the third-safest city to live in in the US. But on Wednesday a gunman killed 13 people in a bar frequented by white college students in Thousand Oaks, just west of Los Angeles.

    Thousand Oaks

    Thousand Oaks is in Ventura County and “is considered one of the safest cities in the country,” Mayor Andy Fox said. “We are consistently ranked one of the highest with respect to the lowest crime rate per capita. We’re proud of that,” Fox said.

    Ventura County Sheriff’s Office Captain Garo Kuredjian confirmed that it has been a long time since shots were fired in the city. He said it is a safe area and a shooting was very unusual there.

    Thousand Oaks is an predominantly white and explicitly Republican municipality, suggesting that there may be a darker, ulterior motive to the mass shooting just a day after the midterm election in which Republicans maintained their hold on the Senate.

    According to the Mirror “Country fans inside Thousand Oaks bar ‘were Las Vegas massacre survivors”.

    One of the victims survived last year’s massacre at a Las Vegas country music festival, where 58 white Country Music fans were slain. He was also at the Borderline Bar and Grill on Wednesday night, when the troubled gunman, an ex-Marine, opened fire on students from Pepperdine University and California Lutheran University – both Christian universities.

    Ian David Long, 28, is also believed to have killed himself, The Military Times reported. Long was a decorated war veteran. He was awarded two Navy Unit Commendations, or NUC, which is only awarded to units for “outstanding heroism in action against the enemy” suggesting that he was someone who readily followed orders.

    One of the witnesses interviewed by ABC network said he had multiple friends at Borderline Bar who were survivors of the Route 91 shooting in Las Vegas just over a year ago.

    This is not the only strange coincidence. New revelations of the Vegas shooter’s links with the FBI have surfaced. FBI Special Agent Aaron Rouse and LVMPD Sheriff Joseph Lombardo kept secret the fact that Marilou Danley, the girlfriend of the shooter, worked for the FBI.

    Danley’s employment with the FBI is as surprising as her tenure at One News Page Ltd. The company’s overview posted on Bloomberg.com reads as follows:

    One News Page Limited operates as an online news portal. The company monitors news headlines from various sources, including newswires, newspapers, and broadcasters. It offers news in the areas of business and finance, sports, lifestyle and interests, science and technology, and corporate reports. The company was incorporated in 2009 and is based in the United Kingdom.

    With more than $5 billion spent on midterm election campaigns, America’s elected representatives are more indebted to their rich donors than ever before.

    In Florida meanwhile an amendment was passed to restore the voting rights of some 1.4 million ex-criminals. This move will change the political landscape, as most are “people of colour” who almost all vote Democrat. In 2016 Trump carried the state by just 100 000 votes.
