Paddock booked rooms overlooking Lollapalooza in Chicago
LINK


quote:

Paddock booked one room for August 1, 2017, 2 days before the August 3 kickoff. Paddock then booked a second room for an August 3 arrival. Both rooms had an August 6 checkout ... that's when Lollapalooza ended. 

The hotel directly overlooked the main stage as well as several adjoining stages. It also overlooks the main entrance and exit where thousands of people file through. And the hotel had a bird's-eye view of the crowd. We're told Paddock specifically requested both rooms be a "view room" which only face Grant Park, where the concert was being held. And here's the scariest part ... it's difficult if not impossible to flee because of Lake Michigan. Sources tell TMZ Paddock had never booked a room at the hotel before, nor had his girlfriend.



Malia Obama was at that concert.


Yeah, I know....TMZ.

But if the msm wasn't so fricking busy breaking down Trump's motion in tossing paper towels they could actually do some real fricking journalism.

Eh... I think this and the info about the rap concert are being fed to you to water down the actual motive behind selecting the actual venue he shot up.

The real elephant in room as far as shooting up a concert in Chicagostan:

Would anyone have even noticed? Would he have made even an uptick blip in the daily shootings there?

Probably just helping Chicago hit its weekend quota.

Or it seems like he was looking into carrying out his plan at some outdoor concert where he could get a vantage point from a building. The type of venue is irrelevant.

So far the only motive that holds any water is he was looking at causing as much damage as possible.

I'm told Chicago's strict gun laws prevented him from bring his weapons for his mass killing plan.

He must have not gone through with it when he saw the "no guns" sign on the front door of the building.

If you point is to show that CNN is as biased as Hannity, well mission accomplished.

Why is the FBI booking rooms at music festivals? More wasteful government spending

Switched to Vegas because he wanted to stand out. 58 murders would be overlooked in Chicago

This only backs up the fact that nothing this guy did was random. He didn't just decend into madness or wake up one day and decide to shoot up a concert. He was methodical and patient in his planning, and if this report is true, he researched his target thoroughly.
