Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock often ‘berated’ his girlfriend in public: report

Published

on

Stephen Paddock, the multi-millionaire real estate investor who killed 59 and wounded over 500 others, reportedly verbally abused his wife in public.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a barista at the Starbucks Paddock and his girlfriend Marilou Danley frequented said she used to “wince” when they came in out of expectation for his treatment of the woman.

The barista, Esperanza Mendoza, said whenever Danley would ask to use Paddock’s casino card, a credit card funded with money won from gambling, his response was predictably “mean.”

“He would glare down at her and say—with a mean attitude—‘You don’t need my casino card for this. I’m paying for your drink, just like I’m paying for you,’” Mendoza said. “Then she would softly say, ‘OK’ and step back behind him. He was so rude to her in front of us.”

As many have noted, mass shooters often have histories of abuse towards women.

As this troubled summer rolls along, and the world begins to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the creation, and use, of the first atomic bombs, many special, or especially tragic, days will draw special attention.  They will include July 16 (first test of the weapon in New Mexico), August 6 (bomb dropped over Hiroshima) and August 9 (over Nagasaki).   Surely far fewer in the media and elsewhere will mark another key date:  July 3.

On July 3, 1945, the great atomic scientist Leo Szilard finished a letter/petition that would become the strongest (virtually the only) real attempt at halting President Truman's march to using the atomic bomb--still almost two weeks from its first test at Trinity--against Japanese cities.

A ranger at Carlsbad Caverns National Park tased and then fatally shot a man during a New Mexico traffic stop and then handcuffed his lifeless body.

Charles "Gage" Lorentz was traveling March 21 from his work site in Pecos, Texas, to his family's home in southwest Colorado when he detoured at the national park to meet a friend, and that's where he encountered National Park Ranger Robert Mitchell, reported KOB-TV.

The ranger stopped the 25-year-old Lorentz for speeding on a dirt road near the park's Rattlesnake Springs area, and Mitchell's lapel video shows him ordering Lorentz to spread his feet and move closer to a railing.

Sessions has desperately tried to tout his Trumpist credentials on the campaign trail, even as the president has waged a campaign aimed at sabotaging his primary bid.
