Major events are seldom without motive. In the American criminal justice system, means and opportunity are additional requirements to establish guilt in a criminal proceeding. In the case of the Mandalay Bay shooting in Las Vegas, however, the motive at the present time remains extremely unclear, if one can even assign blame to a single prime suspect. The lack of clarity also illustrates the dangers inherent in making sweeping changes without a thorough investigation, and demands careful, critical examination of not just the facts as they are presented, but even to the credibility of those that provide them. The mass media – especially that which is controlled by major organizations with ties to the New York and Washington power elite – remains as highly suspect as those whom they themselves point their fingers at. They have the means and opportunity – but always question their motive.
