tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News October 2, 2017 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
a real babysitter instead of your brother. hey. oh. that's my robe. is it? you could save seven hundred eighty two dollars when liberty stands with you. liberty mutual insurance. >> neil: we've never seen anything like it in this country. 58 people shot dead in las vegas. some injured quite seriously. the department of homeland security says security might be heightened all across the country, including today's monday night football game. we'll get to that in a second. a source telling fox that stephen paddock may have brought more than 30 weapons with high
capacity magazines and that he used one right after the other. the gunman's brother quoted as saying that paddock frequently played high stakes video poker. we're learning that his father was a bank robber once on the fbi's most wanted list. two hospitals are playing a major role in treating victims. 160 going to sunrise hospital and medical center. another 104 being treated at university medical center's trauma unit. the president plans to travel to las vegas to meet with victims and first responders. that's the day after he goes to puerto rico. trace gallagher has more about the guy that did this, the shooter. trace? >> neil, the family of 64-year-old stephen paddock said that he was not religious. that he had no genuine political affiliation. they believe that he somehow snapped. but this is not the crime of a man that snapped. it was methodically plotted.
it was meticulously conducted. think about this. look at the windows behind me at the mandalay bay. he had to choose this room. he chose the room or two rooms. because he knew with these windows, he could point the weapon down and get the more damage, the most destruction and death. the past four days, you have authorities going back, looking at surveillance video, seeing if they can figure out how stephen paddock snuck ten weapons inside the mandalay bay. that could take days and days to process various video. they chose the room for a reason, to inflict the most danger shot down on the crowd from different angles. experts say clearly an automatic weapon. they're not legal. that takes some doing to get. there's no link to terrorism. remember, stephen paddock's dad was a bank robber. he never had more than traffic
tickets. >> we have not received any additional intelligence associated with the suspect. we have completed the search warrant in mesquite. i'm not aware of any derogatory information that we can utilize at this point. we have just covered items and it will take a little while to evaluate that information. >> we know that he was an avid gambler, that he came to mesquite after living in texas and california. he was here to retire. he bought a two bedroom house and yet he's now the worst mass killer in u.s. history. we should note, neil, the woman that we have been hearing all day long about, marilou danley, the reason we heard about her is because her debit card was found in the mandalay bay. she's either in a relationship with him or his roommate. she was out of the country. police said she had nothing to do with the actual shooting but they want to talk to her because
they believe she could offer up more information about how this played out. neil? >> neil: you know, trace, you said it yourself there, the family is saying, particularly the brothers, have been quoted as saying maybe he snapped. we don't know. sounds like around last thursday, he waited until the third and final day of this concert to do what he did. sounds meticulously planned to me. >> and he was a country music fan on top of that. i know you're playing the sound. i want to pull up the windows. it's deceiving. they look like they're facing the same direction. you'll see that they're not. there's a 45-degree angle. we're learning this might be a two bedroom suite. he knew -- he actually laid this out so he can shoot on platforms out of each window to go on the crowd. the crowd was about 200 years in front of him. we are about 300 yards behind the actual stage. you can see when is shooting
happened, there was a stampede. people coming out. they lost handbags, shoes. they pushed through fences and gates. they pushed so far to the east, they went on to the fences, broke through the fences of mccarran international airport and got into the airport property just looking for anyplace at all that they could shelter and be safe. this building behind me, we can't show you. there's a broken window. people busted windows to get inside. they believed they were busting glass to get in a building than out here on the outside with the gun fire in the background. >> neil: sounds like he was going back and forth or at least shooting from one perch going to the other. >> yeah. you're talking thousands of rounds. so he was standing on one platform and shooting down, going to the next window and shooting down. it's unclear when he kid himself. all the smoke that he generated with the fires, set off the
smoke alarms and that's one of the reasons that police zoned in on the 32nd floor so quickly. they saw the firing. didn't know what floor it was. they zoned in very quickly, neil. >> neil: incredible. thank you, trace. so much we don't know about stephen paddock. but they're trying to find out a lot as we speak going back to his condo, going back to his past, his family members to find out what if anything could determine a motive. former fbi assistant, ron hosco and randy sutton. randy, what do you think authorities are trying to put together? i know through security cams and the like they'll trace his steps. but most notably to see if he worked with others, right? >> this is going to be one of the most exhaustive investigations in law enforcement history. with the scope and the depth of this crime. law enforcement will be going through every part of this
individual's life. every device that he has, every phone, every computer. his home, any storage units. they're going to need to try to determine what the motivation was here. not because of a criminal justice reason, because he's already dead. he took the coward's way out. he wasn't even -- he wasn't even brave enough to face law enforcement after killing all of those innocent people. but they're going to want to determine the motivation. because if we are to -- if law enforcement is to give any solace or any sense of closure to these victims, they're going to need to know why this individual did what he did. >> if you're reconstructing this and finding out things and looking at them a meticulous way, because he only arrived a few days ago. and seen the first two days of
this country concert come and go, and it was in its final hour, an only then did he choose to strike the way he did and how he did. so you want to see his coming and goings through securitiry cameras. >> yeah, and i want to see what he was looking at on the internet, in his world, through his eyes. what does that look like? what changed so dramatically for someone that was presumably living a normal under the-radar life as has been depicted so far to someone driven to this sort of madness. did something change two days ago, did it change a week ago? is this a relationship issue? is it a failing relationship based on finances that are not going to sustained him because of a gambling habit? what are the drivers in his life? i think you have to look at a longer period of time to see what normal looks like and see
what changed to lead to this madness that we saw last night. >> neil: you know, he did a lot of damage for one guy, randy. obviously had a lot of weapons. a lot of automatic weapons a lot of machine gun type devices that could allow him to take out a lot of people in a short amount of time. even if authorities were able to close in and knew where he was by that time, he already had done a lot of damage. >> right. exactly. the estimate is somewhere around 20 minutes. during that 20 minutes, he literally rained down the fires of hell on these unsuspecting innocent people that were doing nothing more threatening than watching a concert. he planned this with his field of fire, with the distance that he had between he and his perch and his field of fire was.
he was able to concentrate that fire into a relatively small area that was concentrated with people. when you think of soft target, this is the soft target. now, the law enforcement did an outstanding job in identifying where he was and in quickly moving in and creating the breach, which when they went to blow the door off the hinges is when the suspect took the coward's way out and killed himself rather than face these law enforcement officers, who, by the way, lost a brother today. >> neil: ron as well, we hear from a lot of those that are witnesses to this and endured this, friends and loved ones. it was almost as if he suckered them in. just when you think the shooting was stopped, maybe he was switching windows or aims or positions. but it would resume. they would run one way, he chased them down the other way. what are we to make of that?
>> it could be as simple as him as letting a weapon cool off. they will heat up. think of him shooting a 30-round magazine every seconds. you're going to overuse and damage a weapon so it's not shootable. that point will come quickly if you're shooting on automatic fire. could be that he was letting weapons cool. there are magazines made now for some assault-style weapons that will have 10 rounds in it. sounds like he shoot 30-rounds magazine. you can do a lot of damage and it's made worse if he was shooting not so much as a sniper would. as randy said, this is a mass of lead raining down on a group. this isn't individual shots. it's hard to control a weapon, even a controllable weapon on fully automatic fire. this is just raining lead down on an innocent population. each piece of lead, if it
doesn't hit a person immediately, it will hit the ground and fragment and mull time people may be hit by the fragment. so a lot of these people weren't hit directly by hit by fragments. >> neil: we're trying to confirm the weapons, up to 30 of them. one ran low, he picked up another one. we don't know. this we do know. a lot of people are asking questions, how this happened. more reports from adam housley after this. your brain changes as you get older. but prevagen helps your brain with an ingredient originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory. prevagen. the name to remember.
a trip back to the dthe doctor's office, mean just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home... ...with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. neulasta helps reduce infection risk by boosting your white blood cell count, which strengthens your immune system. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%... ...a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away.
in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro. >> neil: all right. the more we learn about this attack, the more we can safely conclude that it wasn't just one flash moment of anger. this is well-planned, well-thought out. adam housley has been working
around the clock and piecing interesting things together. hey adam. >> there's certain parts of this hotel that wouldn't have a straight unobstructed shot down into the crowd, this room he had since last thursday clearly did. it has a lot of people believing in the investigative side that that was planned some time ahead. we have some look from this ankle. if you go up, you can see the two windows blown out from what we knew know is a two-room bedroom suite. we have this video from dr. jason huffman. we have become friends online. he sent me some video. he was actually in that exact same suite one year ago for the exact same concert. he didn't realize it. one of his friends and said look at that video again. 32135 at the mandalay bay hotel.
if you see, you can get the idea how open that view is. you can see the video. it's basically a bank of windows that curls around. one facing east and one facing to the northeast allow ago shooter in this case to have two distinctly views down on to the people below. the 22,000 people that were below. you can see that suite, two-room bedroom suite provided that opportunity up fortunately for last night's carnage. back here live, neil, we had a chance to talk with law enforcement. there's still bodies inside. they said they would be there for 12 hours. the sheriff has given us a number this morning. so that by my watch would be roughly 10:00 p.m. if it sticks to that time frame. there's still bodies inside there, still an extensive investigative process going on. one of the military folks that i
know still speculating as well that those shots, when you hear them, they don't come genuinely from a normal clip. how were the guns obtained. a lot of questions here and a lot of families still finding out about the news that they lost a loved one. the bodies of some of the victims were still inside. i'll leave you with this. we met a lot of regular people the last 13, 14, 15 hours that dealt and saw a lot of things. not only did the first responders that were inside here as fans, not here working, ended up saving a lot of lives, but people that had never done anything like that in their life saved a lot of lives. we met people. took t-shirts and stuffed them in wounds. we met people that did whatever they could to put bodies in cars, drive them away from here. unfortunately some people carried people that were alive at the time down the street
hoping to get to some emergency personnel and the person that would later pass away and leave them there on a table that was being used to sell stuff at this festival. so it has been quite a time here in las vegas. the healing process is going to begin here and be long and at the same time, the investigative process begins with so many questions. >> back to you. >> i can't even imagine what you witnessed in the last 24 hours. adam housley. how about being in the middle of that when it's going down? kodiak and his girlfriend were 25 feet from the stage when this all went down. how are you holding up, kodiak? >> you know, it's been a tough 12 hours here. it's still to the point where it's unreal. you know, hard to believe that it happened even though we were there and i've been watching the news all day. it's hard to sit back and think that that happened down there.
>> i'm sure it's very hard. if you have any difficulty sharing this, please let me know and i'll shut up. tell me what happened, where you and you girlfriend were at the time this first started. >> we were, like i said, about 125 feet or so from the main stage. it was aldean, the close-out. it was down to a single stage. a very large shoulder-to-shoulder crowd at the venue. we were just in one of the open areas that had some of the fake grass and stuff. we were standing there. we were a little closer to the west side of the venue facing the stage, which would be closer to the mandalay bay, las vegas boulevard area. and like everybody, we heard the first few pops. we were thinking that is odd. look around. is that fireworks? is there a helicopter going around? the concert kind of had like a little break in the music
somewhat. when the next round of the pops started, that's when we look at the stage and we saw aldean and the band members just disburse, scatter, hit the ground, run for cover. that was all we needed to know. we grabbed each other and ran. we ran. i could tell where the -- where it was coming from, what direction. it was elevated. the first thing in my mind, it was coming from mandalay bay shooting this direction. so what we did, we circled back around one of the concession stands, bar area sort of thing. we just took cover. at that time we were able to look and see and kind of face mandalay bay. about halfway up mandalay bay, on the glass, you could see flashing. looked like cameras flashing or something like that. so we just stayed down until that round finished.
then you know, we ran for another cover to exit on the east side of the venue. we just kept continuing to run. we took shelter around a water truck with about 20, 25 other individuals. there was an off duty officer helping to direct people. we huddled up. after the burst of shots ended, there was another one and another one. several hundred rounds were going off. >> neil: how long did this all take, kodiak? i heard ten minutes, maybe longer. he would stop and rearm or get another gun. what happened? >> i would say in total, 10 to 12 minutes. it started i think like 10:07. i was trying to -- i had other friends at the concert. i knew they were there. i was trying to call them
simultaneously to find out where they were at. there was no cell phone signal connecting or going out. so we got stuck at the -- next to that water truck for probably a good five minutes, give or take, at that one occasion huddled behind it. there was, you know, a burst of very quick rapid fire that lasted for, you know, 20 to 30 seconds. and then a 10, 12-second break. the burst would continue again. we thought we were protected where we were at. you know, we went as far east as we could get. that's what our thought was. to get further away from the noise, which was heading east. that's the correction that we ran to. >> neil: was there any one else there barricading themselves with you? >> yeah, we had -- behind the
initial concession stand, a lot of people just stopped. i don't think they realized where it was coming from or what exactly it was. i think we had maybe a little bit more inclination. that was my first thought that it was going on, that it was coming from above. that's why we went behind the concession stand quickly. then you started seeing more and more people start to -- areas that would be somewhat, you know, out of line. saw a lot of police officers, security guards and stuff that were taking -- you know, doing the same thing at that point, too. >> neil: now, i understand after all this is done, you think things have settled down, you took a lyft back home. you had the composure to do that. >> yeah, we -- by the time we left the water truck area and there was a pretty big pond and the fire at that time. there was a -- some sort of a gate or fence that enough people had pushed it down. there was a route that looked
like it was going to have a block wall that you could walk the perimeter of the wall. we made our way going through a couple back alleys to eventually get to the tropicana. we got to the tropicana and hugged the airport divider wall. we jogged along that the next mile or so until we got to the parkway. that's where we ordered a lyft. >> and you're back home in henderson, nevada. how is your girlfriend? you know, it's -- i don't think it's fully settled in. obviously we're both rattled. you know, we had lots of conversations with family members, you know, that sort of things. just to make sure hey, we're okay. trying to track down the people i knew at the event. fortunately, you know, all the people that i knew that were down there, we all were okay. you know, everybody was able to
get out. yeah, it's been an experience that, you know, it's -- you don't think it really happened. >> neil: amazing, kodiak. you had remarkable composure as did your girlfriend through all of this. i hand it to you. obviously you're going to go through a lot the next few days. that's an understatement. you showed remarkable strength. be well, be strong. my best to you and your girlfriend. >> sounds good. thank you. >> neil: incredible. can you imagine? all right. so the question that comes up, incidences like that, what are the red flags here? anything that could have keyed authorities off to what was going on here? former cia counter terrorism analyst, nypd intelligence officer buck sexton. i guess that's what they're going to get into here. what might have been the case with stephen paddock and why did he what he did when he did. sounds like he planned what he did in great detail. right? what do you think?
>> neil, there's the very real possibility there wouldn't be any security take-aways from this that will be able to be applied to a situation like this in the future to try to prevent a horrific attack like this. so far, we don't know yet about the legality of all the firearms that he has. we're still trying to figure out exactly where he got them, how he got them. if he went through the legal processes or rather if he modified legal firearms so he could have a more rapid rate of fire, it's not a trip wire that law enforcement would use necessarily to prevent this. >> neil: how would they know, right? let's say he had all of this stuff and he was carrying it up to his room or in a car or whatever. we were in las vegas. our camera crews carry lots of stuff on huge dollies and take it back and forth wherever so it doesn't draw so much as a raised eyebrow. now, is that going to change? should it change?
>> neil, i was just in las vegas until saturday and staying down the street. seeing the way people congregate there and all of the different major venues or the large hotels as well as the concert venues and other areas that get together. it's an impossible security situation when you have an individual like this that takes some precaution to not be detected, who is not somebody on law enforcement's radar beforehand. no criminal record. it's incredibly hard for law enforcement to be following the different plots like this, whether terrorists or in this case seems like somebody that is a deranged lone gunman. it's impossible to catch them all when there's mistakes made by the perpetrator along the way. what are you going to do? try to prevent people from carrying luggage in the hotels?
install metal detectors? i don't think we've seen anything so far. >> neil: i think you're dead on. it seems ironic in hero where they could watch you closely if you're trying to cheat a card, it's a whole other matter when it comes to security when somebody might be bringing dangerous stuff up to their room. there's people that you heard, hey, maybe we need magn magnetometers. i don't know how realistic that is. >> i know after a terrorist attack, which there will be a whole discussion to how we classify this, sole leave that aside. it's obviously a mass shooting with a lot of casualties. after a terrorist attack, people will look at the possible precautions like do we put metal detectors at every train station. do we put them at every bus station. are we going to live in a police state. given what we've seen so far,
given every detail about this shooter, we would have to take police state measures to prevent this kind of attack. i know that's not a satisfying answer at all, but sometimes a person is just going to be so dedicated and so heinous and evil that they get through. this guy obviously got through. >> neil: well said. a former cia counter terrorism analyst, buck sexton. this night not make sense to what i'm about to show you, a moment of silence before the open of trading today. stocks raced to a record today. what if i told you not to spite this but maybe because of it, because we're getting used to this or relief that it wasn't isis or maybe a bit of both, whatever the case, stocks, one record after another. we take stock of that and what that says about us after this. with our allstate agent, and i know that we have accident forgiveness.
>> neil: all right. so much we still don't know about the las vegas shooter. this much we do from his brother. reports that stephen paddock was a multimillion millionaire. he got it in real estate. more after this. ally verify. and we can also verify that what goes down, [ splash, toilet flush ] doesn't always come back up. find a great plumber at angie's list. join today for free. poallergies?reather. stuffy nose? can't sleep?
take that. a breathe right nasal strip instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than allergy medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight, mouthbreathers. breathe right. i can't wait for her to have that college experience that i had. the classes, the friends, the independence. and since we planned for it, that student debt is the one experience, i'm glad she'll miss when you have the right financial advisor, life can be brilliant. ameriprise >> neil: a silence on the
new york stock exchange. the dow and nasdaq and russell, all time highs. the dow more than 152 points. what's going on here? scott martin of kingsview asset management will look at that. all right. what is interesting about this, and i heard it expressed this way, that some call this relief that it wasn't terror, even for those involved it was and the cynical view is, we're sadly getting used to this sort of thing. this is not the usual. what do you think? >> you know, unfortunately, neil, these events are happening more often and more prolific. seems like things are getting more and more desperate for these events. the market is shrugging them off. this market won't back down. i think about the terrible
attacks on september 11. the market was closed for a number days. the day the market opens, if you bought stops that dropped that day, you made money because things will recover and consumers will come back again. >> neil: you never know. mark murphy, one of the things i see, probably people are reassessing travel period or reassessing to locals like vegas. could be a short life of fear. i understand that. but what are you noticing and what are people doing? you hear conventions that maybe get reshuffled or rescheduled. people get antsy. what do you think? >> vegas is the convention capitol of the world. you won't see a drop off. companies will look at that. the fact that up to this point, this is alone wolf with no ties to any outside organizations that we know of. given that, it's a one off and
could happen anywhere. that's unfortunately the world we live in today. you can get in a car and something bad can happen. you can get on a plane, be in your kitchen and slip and fall. the reality is for those folks, your heart goes out to them. but what we found with the american traveller, they're very resilient. the demographic that goes to las vegas is a very resilient demographic. speaking to the folks that send a lot of people to vegas, they're concentrating on basically responding to what is going on, responding to the customers on the ground and they're not seeing a string of cancellations or anything like that at this point in time. so you'll see vegas get back in business as usual. you'll find that places that are truly dangerous, people will day away from them and that's just smart. for the most part, it's a one off. >> neil: people talk. you reminded me about this, that
we're just reminded here, those in the industry tend to sell off people get less worried. and it changes an investment outlook. whether people start getting nervous or to your earlier point, sadly we're getting used to it. this is a worldwide phenomenon. >> it's a shame, isn't it? these events are more common place. that's why you have to be confident in long-term as sent allocation. things do come back. for every attack like this, there's hundreds that get foiled around the world. so our intelligence efforts are getting better with terrible events like these. >> neil: i should point out that other groups -- this might be something for you, mark, have been talking about how u.s.
metropolitan areas are right for this kind of thing, the copycat stuff. it's overstating it. but there is a worldwide concern. how do you tell your customers, the people you advise, you bring it down a notch? >> in terms of just getting out to different locals, you know, you've seen it all over europe, you've seen it in asia. you've seen it in the u.s. the reality, if you're here on the ground in the u.s., things happen right here in our back yard. if you go to chicago, we talk about chicago. things are constantly happening. that is just the nature of the beast. i go to chicago. it's my hometown. i don't worry about it. that's how most travelers are viewing any incidents like this, unless there's a pattern. then it's a new ball game. >> neil: thanks, gentlemen. meanwhile, after this las vegas incident, the suspect shooting from the 32nd floor of the mandalay bay. a lot of people are saying, he didn't even have to be a good
marksman. he had the vantage point that even a mediocre one could do quite well. history proves that again and again. there's only one egg that just tastes better. so fresh from the farm. delicious. perfect. only one egg with more great nutrition- now with 5 times more vitamin d, 10 times more vitamin e, and 25% less saturated fat. only one egg good enough for my family. because why have ordinary when you can have the best. eggland's best. the only egg that gives you so much more: better taste. better nutrition. better eggs.
make a brilliant sniper of someone that isn't necessarily a brilliant sniper. this is former army ranger, nick irving. thanks for coming. i was thinking of you and thinking of others that didn't necessarily fashion themselves or even the people who examine them as great marksmen, but it looks like le harvey oswald was, the texas school repository and others that shot people from high points in texas from the 1960s. so i guess what i'm asking you is, do those type of shooters in a position where they have ample height have an advantage that can make up for not necessarily being someone like you? >> oh, yeah. definitely. before i get to that, i would like to say, we need to as america take a moment and realize the point in time we're in right now. less than 24 hours ago, we were focused on one particular thing and started to divide our nation, this is bringing us together. we need to realize who we are as a possible. we're one. not one single person different help anybody else in that situation. let's focus on that. secondly, you don't have to be a great marksman to achieve what he did. of course not.
he was using what we use in the military. it's almost impossible to defend against, especially for someone who has ever been shot at before and not used to hearing the supersonic cracks going through the air. the position allowed a sound dispersion that allowed it to understood so like two shooters. people are not able to comprehend what was going on. it was a coward move. bless those that lost their lives and the ones that helped save and the swat team that breached the door. i know some really tough men that i like to look at in my life. i don't look at myself as one of them, but i know some tough men that wouldn't go into a room on a breach with a known machine gunner. hats off. what they carried in their trousers is something not made on the periodic table. >> neil: i was thinking you, harkening back to the university
of texas tower shooting where the assailant was striking students belong and shooting with height. they made changes with presidents and how they get around and sheltered in cities and avoiding open motorcades after that shooting. what changes here? doesn't strike me as realistic right now, nick, to dramatically change what we do if you have to start using magnetometers in hotels and motels. what do you do? >> there's nothing we can do. we're not going to discourage or tell hotels to stop opening open their top floors for guests. and carrying large luggage or carrying weapons into a hotel is
nothing new. i've done it in the military. it's nothing new. it's something that is almost impossible to defend against. we live in a day and age right now where terror or anything of that nature can happen anywhere at any time. where i'm in a position where the person that i don't know in a room, his mindset, it can happen there any point in time. there's no way to really defend against that. >> neil: you're right. i'm glad you mentioned and all the good deeds where people were oblivious to party or passions and helping out their fellow marge. thanks, nick. doesn't carolyn goodman know all of that, the las vegas mayor that probably wasn't that surprised when she saw people gathering to donate blood to help those injured in these attacks. the good mayor joins us on the phone. is it going today? >> you just did the right thing by talking about this.
we have a giving and loving community and so shell shocked by this active insanity of this crazed main that did this to so many families. it's incredible. our blood with so many people lined up to give blood. we don't have enough blood. there has to be screening. there's so many issues with it that we're just trying to call on neighboring counties and hopefully move and have the red cross and our united blood services reaching out to help. people are getting annoyed that they want to give. that's a sign of a loving and gracious community that is so horrified by the insanity. it's sickening. >> neil: it is a reminder of something beautiful. you merely mention that in a press briefing with your colleagues and the lines started forming. first, a half hour and then an hour and two hours. the five hours the last reading.
all people oblivious knowing that fellow americans were hurting and needed help. you know, it just reminds you the inherent decency of man and women when something like this happens. something inspiring does as well. >> you know, the president made really terrific remarks. i thought he called me personally on my cell phone to say he's coming out here. the question is whether today or tuesday or wednesday. you know, the horror of one person doing this. there were 22,000 people at a country western festival that had been going for three days. of course, it was an outdoor festival. so to keep people and be -- make sure you can check their wrist band that they bought a talk and weren't some crazed individual, of course we had a metro law
enforcement presence out there already. >> neil: you were everywhere. we're looking at a live view of the stage where this went down. do you know or have you learned anything more about stephen paddock and what he did why he did? he arrived there for last thursday. organized this for the maximum effect just last night. what do we know? anything? >> the only thing i know, of course, what's been reported. fox has done a great job talking about this crazed man's father, which i didn't know about. i did call our sheriff and validated. don't know the mental condition of this killer. but the reality is, you know, you have to look at the higher things in life and we're an entertainment capitol and we're just the greatest city of just relaxation, have a good time, be entertained.
yet be wise and be careful. and just to know that there are people out there so evil-minded. we haven't got that. the sheriff did assure us that they're continuing the investigation. they have gone to the killer's home to get all of the materials, to see if there's anything there. all of our visitors come with bags. i understand he had two roll bags, which most of us like like to carry things anything. so he rolled in his bags. you know, is the next spot that custodial staffs go around and snoop in baggage? i don't think so. >> neil: you'd be against that? >> i would have been four it two days ago, i would a sure you of that. but maybe they should have some type of technology, wand or something that they don't have
to invade somebody's private belongings. but they can run it over what is in there. that in fact in this day and age might have helped. >> neil: i'm sorry, mayor. we'll have more after this. something powerful about progress: that whether times are good or bad, people and their ideas will continue to move the world forward. as long as they have someone to believe in them. citi financed the transatlantic cable that connected continents. and the panama canal, that made our world a smaller place. we backed the marshall plan that helped europe regain its strength. and pioneered the atm, for cash, anytime. for over two centuries we've supported dreams like these. and the people and companies behind them. so why should that matter to you?
speak to the flag outside the white houses is at half-staff. all flags are to be that way by tomorrow. john roberts at the white house with more. >> good afternoon. the president said it was a sad day and indeed it is here the white house and all across america. sarah huckabee sanders visibly emotional today. she took the podium in the briefing room. her voice cracking as she read out some of the acts of heroism of some folks at the concert carried out in order to protect other people.
the president ordering the flagstaff staff. earlier this afternoon, and the rose garden, he and the first lady melania trump coming out for a moment of silence. that was at about 245. the president all day talking about condolences for the victims, consoling the victims, survivors to my friends and family of those who died. soothing and anxious nation and really acting as the leader that a lot of people reached out to him to be. he is heading to puerto rico tomorrow. he's going to meet with the mayor of san juan. they traded some barbs back and forth, criticism. that will be an interesting meeting. >> neil: thank you very, very much. i want to end on the note about the long line.
horrific as this was, people will gladly stand in line. they are concerned about their fellow man and woman. they want to help. they will give blood. that will do it. rheumatologist move to another treatment, ask if xeljanz is right for you. xeljanz is a small pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well. xeljanz can reduce joint pain and swelling in as little as two weeks, and help stop further joint damage. xeljanz can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections, lymphoma and other cancers have happened. don't start xeljanz if you have an infection. tears in the stomach or intestines, low blood cell counts and higher liver tests and cholesterol levels have happened. your doctor should perform blood tests before you start and while taking xeljanz, and monitor certain liver tests. tell your doctor if you were in a region where fungal infections are common and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections.
