All I’ll say about the Las Vegas shooter

While the media and other people bemoan the gun laws or the senseless violence, we know better.

Fatherlessness.

While Stephen Paddock appeared to have no criminal history, his father was a notorious bank robber, Eric Paddock said. Benjamin Hoskins Paddock tried to run down an FBI agent with his car in Las Vegas in 1960 and wound up on the agency’s most wanted list after escaping from a federal prison in Texas in 1968, when Stephen Paddock was a teen.

The oldest of four children, Paddock was 7 when his father was arrested for the robberies. A neighbor, Eva Price, took him swimming while FBI agents searched the family home.

She told the Tucson Citizen at the time: “We’re trying to keep Steve from knowing his father is held as a bank robber. I hardly know the family, but Steve is a nice boy. It’s a terrible thing.”

An FBI poster issued after the escape said Benjamin Hoskins Paddock had been “diagnosed as psychopathic” and should be considered “armed and very dangerous.” He’d been serving a 20-year sentence for a string of bank robberies in Phoenix.

The elder Paddock remained on the lam for nearly a decade, living under an assumed name in Oregon. Investigators found him in 1978 after he attracted publicity for opening the state’s first licensed bingo parlor. He died in 1998.

Imagine a 7 year old boy finding out that his father is a top 10 FBI wanted criminal, then growing up without a father role model (and even if his father hadn’t been arrested what type of influence would that be?).

I suppose we don’t need to go through all of the various statistics again, but here some samples.

  • 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.
  • 90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.
  • 85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average.  (Center for Disease Control)
  • 80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average.  (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)
  • 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average.  (National Principals Association Report)

Just as the black boys and teenagers get sucked into violence and criminal activity without fathers, so too those in white middle and upper class upbringings get sucked into gun violence. It just looks like mass shootings instead of gang violence. Others are suicidal. Still others are rapists. Still others abuse alcohol and drugs.

Lack of identity, lack of role models, lack of community. Just another manifestation of a crumbling system.

It does not bode well that the out of wedlock birth rates have skyrocketed as marriages have imploded over the past few decades. Expect more of the same. The crumbling of the black families only shows us how bad it’s going to get.

  1. The planned gun slaughter by Stephen Paddock was the newest attempt to eliminate all our Bill of Rights. Stephen Paddock was working for the cartel of secret lodges, who have attempted to eliminate our Bill of Rights, for example by a Constitutional Convention, before, in order to eliminate our freedoms of speech and press, so they can restore their supreme grand secret, that can be put in one sentence in medical terms: Vagal stimulation is as effective as LSD. And, by eliminating our Bill of Rights, they could keep that secret and lesser secrets. That slaughter was all planned and financed by the cartel of secret lodges. Look, Stephen Paddock was a White Anglo Saxon, securely retired, and very well to do. This conspiracy is conspicuously obvious.

  2. Multiple planes, no apparent employment record from the mid-90s on, operated out of FL, TX and LV. Large amounts of money, along with taking consistent, expensive vacations. He was more than likely laundering money for someone.

    He followed in his father’s footsteps until he got too deep into something, then it looks a lot like he went down a deep radicalization path. His father was a bank robber; Stephen murdered over 50 people. He became far worse than his father ever was.

    It seems most likely he became a radical fellow traveler and tied himself to some radical Islamist thought. Some of this will come out later because they seem to be seeding false information to the public. Or, if not explicitly false, then partial information. They’re more than likely highly concerned there was a cell working with him and they need to find it.

    As the saying goes: women may be good at raising children, but men are better at raising adults.

    Dina Mackney’s father was involved in organized crime and look what she wound up doing to her ex-husband.

  4. Bee says:

    It is spiritual/soulish; specific sin tendencies and character flaws are passed from father to children akin to genetics. Stephen Paddock was not a nice guy who “cracked”.

    If we haven’t past the point of return…we will once this generation comes to maturity. I think the stats are around 40% of kids are born out of wedlock. Congrats feminists…you smashed the patriarchy and you’ll get the fruits of it in the future.

    There is no doubt that bastards can act out as real bastards and that the son of a bitch is usually bad for civilization.

    I do think there is reason to doubt that the shooter/shooters have been correctly identified. Sometimes the real culprit is the one spinning the narrative.

    Boy Scouts now to admit girls to Cub + Eagle Scout programs. Yet another “victory” for Satanic Feminism. I understand the importance of maintaining an unshakable faith in God through Christ, but… I’m not sure how to proceed when it appears that one of the last remaining wholesome American organizations has either been infiltrated, coerced, or compromised itself for worldly purposes. Going to pray for guidance on this one, and in the meantime am holding onto the small sliver of hope that whoever was behind this decision is capable of repentance.

    I wouldn’t put my hope in any secular institution like the boy scouts. Any secular institution will fall prey to whatever the culture dictates.

    Heck, even many so-called Christiand and Churches do.

    @DeepStrength

    Fair enough. The problem is that Boy Scouts was one of the last avenues for fatherless boys to get a positive male role model, as well as an outlet to avoid heavily feminized public education and secular media. I must tip my hat to the Mormons, as they continue to hold fast: https://www.deseretnews.com/article/900002109/boy-scouts-of-america-plans-to-admit-girls.html

    BSA was “better”, but if you look back at their history, they were always utterly Blue-Pilled. Though heavily focused on skills for boys. It’s a matter of building something new and rejecting the cultural stupidity, but that takes effort & design.
