Somebody had to come up with a Conspiracy.
How did an untrained novice, with an unfamiliar weapons, under incredibly adverse high stress conditions, achieve reload and accuracy rates, and most importantly a casualty count, that exceeded those of the world’s best competition shooters and special operators?
There were around 300 people at Pulse, 103 were shot and 49 killed. That makes a 16% kill “ratio” and about a 30% hit “ratio” so basically far from best competition shooters or special operators. And even if you use 103 as the top number, you are talking about a 47.5% kill “ratio” which is pretty crappy even for less than stellar competition shooters.
Now, the “author” and others assume is that the people shot and killed did so immediately and that is where the BS necessary for the conspiracy mushroom comes from. He seems to forget that there was a 3 hour window between first shots and the dispatching of Asshole Mateen where many initially wounded probably succumbed to blood loss or respiratory failure because immediate care and transportation to a hospital was not possible.
We will discuss in future posts about the time delay and about the need to treat oneself when SHTF, but let’s save the arguments till more info comes out. But let’s help cut the conspiracy crap before it grows into a magnificent Rain Forest of bovine caca.
