One reported fact that surely will be used to blame the right, the Tea Party and the NRA for this murderous killing spree. Let’s not even have an investigation before smearing people who have nothing to do with a dastardly criminal act.
A married white supremacist couple gunned down two Las Vegas police officers, draped one of their bodies in a revolutionary flag and gunned down a civilian before killing themselves, it has been revealed.
The husband and wife, identified by neighbors as in their late 20s and named Jared and Amanda, stormed a Cici’s Pizza on the northeastern edge of the gambling mecca just before 11.30 a.m. Sunday morning and killed the cops while they ate lunch.
They then ransacked the dying cops bodies for ammunition and weapons before covering them with the infamous ‘Don’t Tread On Me’ flag from the American Revolutionary war.
The two officers killed have been identified as 13-year department veteran Alyn Beck, 41, and 31-year-old Igor Soldo, Sheriff Doug Gillespie, who had been on the force since 2006, authorities said.
Neighbors said the couple openly obsessed over conspiracy theories and wanting to murder police officers in the weeks before Sunday’s attack.
‘My officers were simply having lunch,’ Sheriff Doug Gillespie solemnly said during an afternoon news conference.
Both police officers were shot in the head at point blank range by the suspects while eating pizza on their lunch break, a witness told KLAS. They were not even on duty.
The duo then reportedly shouted at the horrified diners to ‘tell the police the revolution has begun,’ as they fled the restaurant for a nearby Walmart and callously bragged to a bystander in the parking lot they had just killed two police officers.
One of the two assailants then shot a female civilian dead just inside the doorway to the store, according to reports. A Las Vegas Metro Police Department spokesperson reached by MailOnline was not able to confirm if the dead civilian is male or female.
A shootout with SWAT officers then ensued before the female suspect shot her male partner and then killed herself, according to police. The male gunman shot himself dead to bring the siege to an end.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported early Monday morning that the shooters are believed by police to be white supremacists.
These two may well have been meth heads.
Like many of the neighbors contacted, Krista Koch said she didn’t know the couple’s last names. She described them as “militant.” They talked about planning to kill police officers, “going underground” and not coming out until the time was right to kill.
So why didn’t anyone report this?
Brandon Monroe, 22, has lived in the complex for about two weeks. He said the man who lived in the apartment that was being searched often rambled about conspiracy theories. He often wore camouflage or dressed as Peter Pan to work as a Fremont Street Experience street performer. A woman lived with him, Monroe said, but he didn’t see her as often.
They were weird people, Monroe said, adding that he thought the couple used methamphetamine.
“The man told Monroe he had been kicked off Cliven Bundy’s ranch 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas while people from throughout the U.S. gathered there in protest of a Bureau of Land Management roundup of Bundy’s cattle.” Jessica Anderson, 27, said. She lived next door.
That’s all the reactionary left will need to blame the right for this murder spree.
