First of all I certainly was not there and know only as much as you do, but in talking with some of my friends who have seen hard combat and one a combat medic in 68 when we were losing 300-400 soldiers a week on the battlefield…we have some ???
According to police all the gun play took place < 45 min.
Combat kill to wound ratio on the battlefield based upon bullets is 15:1
Its been hinted that he had an AR 15 that was full auto fire. Full auto is full inaccurate and primarily depends upon volume to kill or wound. Seasoned combat soldiers rarely use full auto due to inaccuracy and the high rate of fire consumes you ammo load to quickly.
To kill 49 people and wound 53 in 45 min simply is not easy and I have seen less WIA/KIA after 6 hrs with 1000’s of rounds fired.
? Were there or how many may have died as a result of bleed out. The club and bodies were on lock down for nearly 24 hrs, would the KIA count be as high???
? There seems to be a high incidence of the perp getting killed by the police…dead men tell no lies!!! Yet from an Intell standpoint keeping the perp alive would be of HUGE benefit to our country!
? What happened in that <45 min that the perp was able to inflict that much carnage? Was the disposition of the people such that they were in a state of rigid fear and unable to defend themselves individually and or collectively??? 300+ people in close quarters could not overwhelm 1???
There seems to be a lot here that is non sequitur…ya think???
