In last night’s exclusive, we revealed Mandalay Bay’s official policy for shots fired: wait for the police. The hotel knew where the shooter was for six minutes before he opened fire, and did nothing during the ten minutes he rained lead on a crowd of 22 thousand, killing and maiming scores of innocent people. I can understand the reasons behind the policy, both practical (we’re not SWAT) and financial (we don’t have legal immunity like the police do). But . . .
What would you do if you were a member of the Mandalay Bay’s armed security? Would you throw your job away and risk your life to stop or at least interrupt his murderous rampage?
Remember: Stephen Paddock could have had his room wired with explosives, charges that might have torn the hotel apart and caused even a larger death toll if you opened his door.
