59 innocent human beings were murdered in the Las Vegas shooting, and a female eye witness named Rikki Raulerson claims that the first shots and deaths may have actually occurred at the Bellagio. More specifically, Raulerson says that, “The security guard at the Cosmopolitan exact words were ‘I know about as much as you do. I have heard seven confirmed shooters at multiple hotels including the Bellagio.’ I do not have any idea how he knew this info, but this is the time they were locking down the hotel. There were a few metro police officers alongside security guards outside our hotel Vdara, and as they were checking our credentials we asked are there really multiple shooters, what’s going on? And the police officer confirmed yes multiple shooters at multiple hotels including Aria next door. He did not say seven however he just said multiple. I assume he heard this over the radio, because he was a metro officer.”
Video footage below also suggests that there may have been multiple shooters in multiple areas: “We did not hear any shots from our hotel room. However while running from Cosmo we did hear shots, but they weren’t loud enough for me to think they were right next to us. The Bellagio is quite far from the Vdara on one side, and the Mandalay is about 1.7 miles on the other side. I don’t believe the shots we heard were coming from Mandalay however, because quickly after we got to the room they had released that he was dead. I could be wrong however. It was all happening so fast.”
As mentioned, the clip below depicts shots being fired from different areas, which makes Raulerson question what police officials have reported: “I just feel like I was initially told one thing, and hearing the same thing from others, even hearing things over the local news at the very beginning of the event. However instead of showing proof that the other hotels in question weren’t affected, they just completely stopped mentioning it. And it all seemed to disappear at once, within 30 mins or so. That was very questionable to me, and after processing everything we had seen, and actually seeing others out there with similar stories to my own, I felt like I wanted to try and figure out the truth. I would be more inclined to believe the media if they were actually showing me proof.”
Raulerson’s original social media post.
“So here goes. . . . Especially to those of you saying to stop talking about this, stop making assumptions etc.
Call me crazy, call me dramatic, call me whatever you want. I’m posting this for those of us who were on the strip Sunday night, who know what we saw and what we were told by police officers, security guards, and even the local news when all of this madness started. And I am posting this in hopes of informing others who have believed everything they’ve seen on the news. If while leaving the Cosmopolitan, we had been told there was one shooting at the Mandalay Bay, Anthony and I would have not been worried for our lives and we would have continued to go out, knowing we weren’t headed to that particular area of the strip. But that’s not what we were told. We were told that there were seven confirmed shooters, and confirmed deaths at multiple hotels. Including Bellagio, the Aria and New York New York. Being told this by a security guard, who then told us to go to the third floor for safety. However, Anthony says, ‘No Rikki. This is a very popular hotel, I don’t feel like the third floor of this popular hotel in public is the safest place. We’re going to try and get out of here right now.’
Running back to our hotel next door, Vdara, we are told once again by police/security checking our id and room key, ‘yes multiple hotels effected. Go to your room and do not leave.’ We then get to the room, immediately turn on the news and start watching out of our windows to figure out what is going on. The news also states, live, that the Bellagio had been effected and there was one confirmed death. Now . . . skip ahead about an hour. The news is no longer stating anything about the other hotels effected. They say it is one person. Every bit of info that was being initially given to us was disappearing. We could physically see from our window view, fire alarms going off at the cosmopolitan, and multiple cop cars and ambulances pulling up there as well. We wanted more information about what was happening at these other hotels right next to us, and we weren’t getting it. And we still aren’t.
Monday morning I am of course telling my friends and family about our experience, and I was starting to really feel like I was crazy. Everyone was telling me there was only one shooter, and I just couldn’t understand what I had seen. Finally, other people like myself started speaking out. I was relieved to know that I wasn’t crazy, but now just as confused as to why the media is trying to hide this information. There are now videos and statements popping up all over the web, showing proof of other shooters and other effected hotels. Why are they trying to hide this?! If for no other reason, think about being a family member of the others who died or were injured at these other hotels. They deserve the respect, and the truth as to what happened to their loved ones.
Now, can we please stop talking about Gun Control for just a few minutes, and figure out what is really going on here? Figure out the real motive of this incident, and inform people of the truth. Laws can be put in place for anything and everything. There will always be people who break them. And especially with all of the technology we have now days, it is not very hard to find anything you want. Whether it’s an illegal weapon, drugs, anything. Laws will always be broken. So let’s stop pretending this incident wouldn’t have happened if more laws were in place, but instead demand the truth about what really happened that night, and why? Don’t be so naive.”
What to learn.
Human consciousness is a mysterious thing, and no one may ever know why the shooter or shooters decided to take the lives of so many innocent human beings in Las Vegas. However, people may still be able to move on from the events eventually if they are able to learn the genuine truth of the tragedy—whatever that truth actually is. This is usually the only way human beings can truly get over any negative event: they must accept the reality of what has happened, decide how to change themselves and urge others to make positive changes as well, and realize that the past can’t be improved but the future can be. Of course, none of this is possible if the truth is never known, made public, and widely accepted as being true.
Positive shifts in consciousness cannot occur within a negative air of deception or injustice.
