Texas Church Shooter Killed His Own Grandmother-In-Law & Once Fractured His Stepson"s Skull

Those who knew Devin Kelley were not entirely shocked to learn he had shot up a church and killed 26 people on Sunday. Years before the 26-year-old stormed into a Texas church with a military-style rifle and went on a mass shooting rampage, he was convicted of assaulting his wife and breaking his infant stepson's skull.

Years before the 26-year-old stormed into a Texas church with a military-style rifle and went on a mass shooting rampage, he was convicted of assaulting his wife and breaking his infant stepson's skull. Related: Trump Says Texas Church Shooting 'Isn't A Guns Situation' While stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico in 2012, Kelley was charged with "assault on his spouse and assault on their child." Don Christensen, a retired colonel who prosecuted Kelley for the Air Force, told the New York Times: "He assaulted his stepson severely enough that he fractured his skull, and he also assaulted his wife. He pled to intentionally doing it." After 12 months confinement, the self-proclaimed atheist was discharged from the military with a bad conduct discharge, which kicked off a downward spiral that included divorce and an animal cruelty charge. On Sunday, Kelley appeared to get revenge on his second wife Danielle and a faith he professed to loathe when he killed 26 people and injured 20 others at the First Baptist Church. Among those Kelley killed in the church was own grandmother-in-law Lula Woincinski White (pictured above). Kelley's other in-laws and second wife were also members of the church, but not present during the day of the massacre. Related: Marilyn Manson Points Fake Rifle At San Bernardino Concert On Monday, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told reporters that 12 to 14 of the people killed were kids. Releasing the identity of more victims, officials confirmed Marc Daniel Holcombe and his 18-month-old daughter Noah were killed. After the shooting on Sunday, friends from Kelley's high school took to Facebook to speak about the tragedy. While most remembered him as an awkward but friendly teenager, many admitted hearing the news wasn't surprising -- since, in recent years, Kelley grew so dark that many unfriended him on the social media site. Longtime friend Courtney Kleiber shared on Sunday: "I had always known there was something off about him. But he wasn't always a ‘psychopath' though… [He was] happy at one point, normal, your average kid. We had a lot of good times together. Over the years we all saw him change into something that he wasn't. To be completely honest, I'm really not surprised this happened, and I don't think anyone who knew him is very surprised either." Sending love and light to everyone in Sutherland Springs, Texas. [Image via Texas Department of Public Safety/Facebook.].....»»

Texas Church Shooting Survivor Details How She Played Dead As Gunman Searched For More Victims

How terrifying. One survivor from the Texas Church shooting has bravely opened up about how she made it through Sunday's tragedy.

One survivor from the Texas Church shooting has bravely opened up about how she made it through Sunday's tragedy. According to Rosanne Solis, when gunman Devin Kelley began raining bullets on the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, many churchgoers responded with screams. Related: Texas Church Shooter Killed His Own Grandmother-In-Law However, Solis and many others began playing dead while Kelley reloaded his weapon. While speaking with ABC News, Rosanne recalled: "I played dead and I made sure that I hid myself good under [a] bench. You could hear a pin drop in there, silence. Real quiet … I knew if I said something he was gonna kill me. He was looking for people to shoot. More people to shoot." What an awful situation. As you surely know, the now deceased 26-year-old killed 26 people and injured at least 20 more in an attack on the rural church. It's said Kelley, who was a former Air Force member, dressed in all-black tactical gear with a ballistics vest for his Sunday morning assault. Unsurprisingly, Solis thought she was going to die. She continued: "I'm gonna die, I knew I was gonna die. I knew 'cause the shots were going close to my head I didn't want to die... He was shooting the people on the floor, they were on the ground already bleeding. They were scared. Nobody was about to say a word … I would not even move, I would not even make a sound." To make matters worse, Rosanne claims Devin taunted the terrified victims. In fact, she remembers hearing him ask: "Is everybody done?" Per Solis, the shooter's victims were " trapped inside" the rural church since there was "no where to go." Kelley was truly a monster. As was previously reported, Kelley was eventually driven from the house of worship after local resident Stephen Willeford exchanged gunfire with the culprit. Devin was later found deceased in his vehicle in Guadalupe County, TX. The domestic terrorist passed away from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Of course, our thoughts are with those affected by this tragedy. Although, we hope this sad bout of violence brings about change regarding our gun laws. Such a sad situation all around.

The Texas Church Shooter Has Been Identified — Details Here

As we previously reported, on Sunday morning, at least 26 lives were taken after a gunman opened fire on the First Baptist Church. Reports have since confirmed the identity of the now deceased shooter, named Devin Kelley. Related: Jason Aldean Resumes Tour Following Vegas Massacre According to CNN, the 26-year-old mass shooter was an Air Force veteran who previously worked at the Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico. It's said his focus was in logistics readiness. Apparently, Kelley had a violent past as he was discharged from the Air Force in 2014, over a 2012 court-martial where he was accused of having assaulted his spouse and their child. Smh. Per an Air Force spokesperson, Devin was discharged for "bad conduct," given a reduction in rank, and sentenced to 12 months in confinement. Still, many are wondering why Kelley targeted the house of worship. While it was initially believed that Devin was "not from [the] immediate area," The Post has since claimed that Kelley was from a county near the site of his rampage. Not to mention, it's reported that Kelley's in-laws have been members of the First Baptist Church, but were not there at the time of the shooting. Reportedly, Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt has said all but one victim has been identified and that nearly everyone who was in the church received an injury of some kind. Tackitt added that the gunman was armed with two weapons -- an assault riffle and a handgun. After receiving gunshot wounds from a civilian, Kelley allegedly shot himself. It's currently unknown which shot ultimately killed the domestic terrorist. Clearly, we've got more to learn about this shooter, so be sure to check back for any and all updates. As always, our thoughts are with those affected by this tragedy. [Image via AP Images.].....»»

The Internet Reacts To Donald Trump"s LONG AF State Of The Union Address — VIDEO HERE!

The time has come! On Tuesday, Donald Trump finally gave his first official State Of The Union address at the U.S. Capitol building, and boy, it was a doozy! Before the speech even started, the President and Melania Trump arrived SEPARATELY to the event, according to CNN. As we reported last week, the First Lady abruptly canceled a [...] The time has come! On Tuesday, Donald Trump finally gave his first official State Of The Union address at the U.S. Capitol building, and boy, it was a doozy! Before the speech even started, the President and Melania Trump arrived SEPARATELY to the event, according to CNN. As we reported last week, the First Lady abruptly canceled a trip with Donnie to Davos, Switzerland amid reports he had an alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels. She has reportedly been spending "three to four days a week" at a luxurious D.C. hotel ever since the "humiliating" news broke out. Video: Trump Says He's Not A Feminist (SHOCKER!) To start things off, the businessman says the current state of the union is "strong," because of its strong people. Ever since he took office, Trump takes credit for creating 2.4 million jobs (largely in manufacturing), raising wages, and lowering the unemployment rate, especially for African American and Latino communities. He also says he enacted the biggest tax cuts in United States history, doubled child tax credit, and repealed the core of Barack Obama's Obamacare, getting rid of mandatory mandates. In terms of the future, Trump urges both parties to set aside their differences, and to "seek common ground." The President hopes to significantly lower the cost of prescription drugs, to make trade relationships with other countries fair and reciprocal, to rebuild our "crumbling infrastructure," and to reform prisons in order to give second chances to those who have served their time. In terms of immigration reform, he offers a proposal that strikes a compromise between Democrats and Republicans. Specifically, Trump wants to offer a path of citizenship to 1.8 million immigrants over a 12-year period based on their education, skill, and moral character; to fully secure the border (a.k.a. build the wall) which will close loopholes allowing "gang members" into the country; to end the visa lottery; and to protect the nuclear family by ending chain immigration. During the extremely long speech, social media users couldn't help but voice their opinions/frustrations on Twitter. They wrote: Trump using heartbroken families and actual heroes of conscience to get applause for his horrifying, cowardly policies is instantly poisonous and embarrassing. #SOTU — Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) January 31, 2018 The entire GOP right now... #SOTU pic.twitter.com/C52ccLbUvf — John Jennings (@Johnnings) January 31, 2018 BREAKING: Trump plagiarized part of #SOTU from Hillary Clinton, "This, in fact, is our new American moment.

Pennsylvania Catholic Church Grand Jury Report Reveals Widespread Rape

But a lot, at […] The post Pennsylvania Catholic Church Grand Jury Report Reveals Widespread Rape appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?.   If you’ve seen the movie Spotlight, then you can skip this post and read about Alec Baldwin slut shaming his fake Instagram model daughter. If you haven’t seen it, then all you really need to know is that Catholics like to sexually abuse young boys and girls. Not all Catholics. But a lot, at least if you’re going by the staggering number of Pennsylvania priests charged with rape in yet another Catholic church kid porking scandal. The details of a new Grandy Jury report on the abuse of over a thousand kids by three-hundred powerful figures in the Pennsylvania church are truly unsettling, but not enough to make people finally realize that this is probably going on everywhere. The terminology and details of the report – which comes after a two-year investigation by Attorney General Josh Shapiro – are remarkably similar to those surrounding the explosive 2002 Boston sex abuse scandal covered in Spotlight. So much so that, again, if you’ve already seen the movie, Ireland Baldwin’s bland ass cheek awaits you. Since you probably already get the gist of what goes on in the Catholic church – priests abuse their power to sexually abuse children and share pornographic images of them, while the church goes to great lengths to cover up the abuse – let’s just skip to some of the horrifying details in the report. According to Buzzfeed News: One priest is accused of ejaculating in the mouth of a 7-year-old. And: One boy was forced to stand on a bed in a rectory, strip naked, and pose as Christ on the cross for the priests, Shapiro said during Tuesday’s press conference. Priests then took photos of their victim, ‘adding them to a collection of child pornography which they produced and shared on church grounds.’ And: A priest at the Diocese of Erie… confessed to fondling 12 boys, telling them he was performing a ‘cancer check.’ After his confession, the priest remained in active ministry for 15 years. And: Another priest, in the Diocese of Allentown, confessed to sexually molesting a boy. But the dioceses concluded that ‘the experience will not necessarily be a horrendous trauma’ for the victim, and that the family should have ‘an opportunity to ventilate.’ They’re… off their damn rockers. The statute of limitations saved all but two of the priests, but hopefully the public shame the others are facing will deter the thousands of other men who hold positions of power within the Catholic church around the globe from having sex with children for good. Kidding. Countdown to the next Catholic church rape scandal begins… now.

Texas Shooting Victims Include Pastor"s Daughter, Pregnant Woman, & 5-Year-Old Girl — Here Are Some Of Those Killed In The Tragedy

A small Texas town continues to reel in the wake of a shooting at First Baptist Church, where at least 26 people died and at least 20 others were injured on Sunday. Authorities said 23 people were found dead inside the church, two were found outside, and one died after being taken to the hospital, following [...] A small Texas town continues to reel in the wake of a shooting at First Baptist Church, where at least 26 people died and at least 20 others were injured on Sunday. Authorities said 23 people were found dead inside the church, two were found outside, and one died after being taken to the hospital, following what Gov. Greg Abbott called the deadliest mass shooting in his state's history. The now-deceased shooter has been identified as Devin Patrick Kelley, an Air Force vet with a "troubled past," according to Abbott. Related: There's 'Enough' Evidence To Arrest Harvey Weinstein For Rape The 26-year-old's motive for the shooting is unclear, but more concerning questions remain for some town residents -- who still reportedly don't know if their family members are injured, at the hospital, or deceased. Officials have not released all the names of the 26 people killed -- whose ages range from 5 to 72 -- however, some of the victims' identities have surfaced. One victim was the 14-year-old daughter of the church's pastor Annabelle Pomeroy (below). Her mother Sherri Pomeroy confirmed to CBS News via text message on Sunday, writing: "My husband and I were ironically out of town in two different states. We lost our 14-year-old daughter today and many friends. Neither of us have made it back into town yet to personally see the devastation. I am at the Charlotte airport trying to get home as soon as I can." The family reeling most from the attack is the Holcombe family. Joe and Claryce Holcombe lost eight members of their family -- including children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Among those lost were Joe's 60-year-old son Bryan, who had been been filling in for the paster that day, and his 58-year-old wife Karla (above). Joe's pregnant granddaughter-in-law Crystal Holcombe (below) was also killed; along with her three children, Emily Hill, Meghan Hill, and Greg Hill, and her unborn child. The youngest victims of the shooting were identified as 5-year-old Brooke Ward and 7-year-old Emily Garza. Emily (middle row, right) was shot and underwent surgery on Sunday but succumbed to her injuries. Brooke's (front row, left) 5-year-old brother Ryland Ward (front row, right) had multiple bullets surgically removed and was stable as of Sunday night. Our hearts go out to the small community of Sutherland Springs, especially families of those killed, as more of the victim's identities come to light. [Image via Facebook/YouTube.].....»»

Harvey Weinstein Accused Of Violently Attacking Cannes Chauffeur After He Failed To Pick Up Prostitutes For Him

Harvey Weinstein is being called out for more disgusting behavior! "The Pig," as he's known in Cannes, has previously been accused of beating up a chauffeur, who he requested pick up hookers for him. Mickael Chemloul described to Nice-Matin, a publication local to Nice, France, about being attacked by the movie producer in 2013, and even suing [...] Harvey Weinstein is being called out for more disgusting behavior! "The Pig," as he's known in Cannes, has previously been accused of beating up a chauffeur, who he requested pick up hookers for him. Mickael Chemloul described to Nice-Matin, a publication local to Nice, France, about being attacked by the movie producer in 2013, and even suing him in 2014. The case was "inexplicably dismissed" despite the driver offering up the medical records showing his injuries. Related: Harvey Could Still Face Prosecution For Rose McGowan Rape According to his account, on July 14, 2013, he says he drove Harvey to a beach club, Club 55, to meet two prostitutes. They didn't end up showing, so he violently went at Mickael: "He went crazy and hit me. At that moment, there was no question I'd never work for him again." He also talked to French media outlet BFMTV about bringing Harvey young women, who often left his room in tears: "I felt like driving poor innocent people, innocent girls, taking them into the wolf's mouth and I could not tell them 'where you put your feet, it's dangerous.' The one that marked me the most was a girl who was a fan of him, who loved him, who followed him for years. She gave her body, her soul, she ave everything to this gentleman because he promised her to make castings and make a film she never shot." The professional driver is writing a book about his experiences with the mogul, his working title currently being The Last Monster of Hollywood. A Weinstein spokesperson denied the allegations, telling The Hollywood Reporter: "There was never any altercation between the driver and Mr. Weinstein. The driver was terminated by the company because of his habit of speeding, many times as fast as 140 miles per hour. It is a fallacy that the driver procured any meetings of any kind with anyone for Mr. Weinstein or anyone else at the company. He was a driver and that was his sole task." Others who have worked with the disgraced 65-year-old have described his "pig"-like ways. A longtime bartender at the Hotel du Cap, a favorite of Harvey's and also allegedly the location where Asia Argento claims she was raped, shared: "[With Harvey] it's everything you have read, and worse. He was always in here with one or two young girls, very loud, but we are always polite because he is a guest. Unfortunately, now he is the most famous person to have stayed here." And a housekeeper at another of Harvey's favorite hotels, the Majestic Hotel, didn't recognize his name but immediately recognized his picture: "Oh, he was the ugly one who thought he was God. I didn't even know who he was, but he was very bossy. Men like George Clooney or Brad Pitt, they were such lovely men and so handsome. But not him. He was a mean pig." An unnamed agent who is said to have worked with the producer for years in Cannes, described to THR: "Harvey was a Jekyll and Hyde character, and one of those sides is a true artist; the other side is pretty hard to swallow. We warned all our clients that he was a groper and a pig." Meanwhile, another anonymous source told Le Parisien: "He was known in Cannes simply as 'The Pig.'" That nickname doesn't even begin to describe him now with all the allegations of sexual harassment and assault. [Image via WENN.].....»»

As we're sure you heard, a 26-year-old gunman killed at least 26 people and wounded about 20 others inside the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday. In response, POTUS told reporters the shooting "isn't a guns situation," but rather a "mental health problem." How about: it's both. We should care about mental health AND gun control -- and why in the world someone with mental health issues can have access to an assault rifle in the first place.

The church has since been opened and is housing people displaced by the hurricane......»»

Have You Gotten On Your Knees For Beyonce Today?

Younger people’s positive attitude about attending organized religion has cooled off.

Younger people’s positive attitude about attending organized religion has cooled off. Sunday Mass suffers a lack of not wrapping the “all praise be and thanks to the lord” shit up within a reasonable time. How many years has the church forced sinners to decide between asking for forgiveness and watching their favorite football team. I mean Big Ben is getting up there in age and God’s been around since what, the beginning of time? Easy decision for a sensible devout Christian. But now religion is attempting to become cooler in an effort to amass more members since they’re the only other organized group other than the military that suffers from applicants that just can’t make the cut. Enter Beyoncé. She just bought a church. Beyonce now has her very own church! Queen Bey’s the new owner of a stone structured, 7,500 sq. ft house of God in The Big Easy. The New Orleans church — which is more than 100 years old — was listed at $850,000. Beyonce’s church was built in the early 1900s, but has been out of commission as a place of worship for some time due to its church members passing away. If there was anymore proof needed that organized religion is for stupid people and women this is it. I thought the Church coffee shop combo full of college students was already weird but now Beyoncé is the middleman between the Lord and lowly Earth dwellers like I. If the mission was really to praise god than those calling themselves pastors and priests would lose the gimmicks. Even with the declining attendance numbers. Because isn’t that what faith is about? Or is that just something the church has to tell people to come back each week after some of these bible stories don’t hold up after a little rumination. Either way in Beyoncé Knowles name we pray, Amen.

Pastor Joel Osteen Scrambles To Defend Megachurch Closure Amid The Catastrophe Caused By Hurricane Harvey

Joel Osteen is in damage control mode. As we previously reported, the famed Texas pastor has been facing backlash on social media following claims that he's kept his massive Lakewood Church closed to the flood victims caused by Hurricane Harvey.

As we previously reported, the famed Texas pastor has been facing backlash on social media following claims that he's kept his massive Lakewood Church closed to the flood victims caused by Hurricane Harvey. Uh oh. Related: Elisabeth Moss Defends Scientology! Osteen was first hit with criticism over the weekend when the Lakewood Church's Facebook account announced that the house of pray was "inaccessible due to severe flooding." This post had tongues waggin' as photos surfaced proving the Church was unaffected during the start of the hurricane. In an attempt to clean up this controversy, Joel released another statement where he defended that Lakewood had NOT closed its doors to those in need, but is simply waiting for the "shelters [to] reach capacity" before welcoming evacuees. The religious leader added: "We have never closed our doors. We will continue to be a distribution center for those in need. Lakewood will be a value to the community in the aftermath of this storm in helping our fellow citizens to rebuild our lives." One Lakewood worshipper weighed in on the controversy as she shared on Twitter: Seriously quite sickening when people spread negative news without knowing the situation. This is the situation of our church @lakewoodch pic.twitter.com/0KKBmu6hW8 — Lynne Gabriel (@heyitslynneg) August 28, 2017 However, thanks to footage (below) from a local resident, it's been proven that there is still no flooding outside of the church. As you surely know, Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 when it first touched down on Friday. The storm has taken at least 10 lives and has left numerous homes flooded. Not to mention, several Texas towns are bracing themselves for the next phase of the catastrophic storm. The state of Louisiana has already begun evacuating residents. Oh man. Our thoughts are with everyone affected by Hurricane Harvey. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Marilyn Manson Points Fake Rifle At San Bernardino Concert Crowd — Did The Rocker Go Too Far??

Marilyn Manson clearly didn't think this through… On Sunday evening, the controversial rocker performed at the Knotfest music festival in San Bernardino, CA.

On Sunday evening, the controversial rocker performed at the Knotfest music festival in San Bernardino, CA. As part of his show, the wheelchair bound Manson sang into a mic which was attached to a fake rifle. Related: The Texas Church Shooter Has Been Identified This decision was particularly troubling since the San Bernardino community was devastated by a mass shooting only back in December 2015. In case you forgot, terrorists Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik took the lives of 14 people when they shot up a Department of Public Health training event using semi-automatic pistols and rifles. Understandably, the community was left shaken up following the tragedy. Not to mention, this gig occurred mere hours after the tragic Texas church shooting. Thus, it's so shocking that the 48-year-old would choose such an insensitive prop during his performance of We Know Where You Fucking Live. Still, Manson's whole M.O. is to strike up controversy -- so perhaps the choice was a deliberate one?? Who knows. Be sure to CLICK HERE to check out footage of the rifle mic stand for yourself. Oh, and be sure to let us know your thoughts on the situation (below). [Image via WENN.].....»»

"King Of Instagram" Douche Dan Bilzerian Ran, Filmed Himself, & Pestered Cops For A Gun During Las Vegas Shooting

If you're not familiar with Instagram star Dan Bilzerian, frankly you're probably better off. The self-proclaimed King Of Instagram is a rich d-bag who posts primarily about his leisurely party lifestyle jetting around tropical islands surrounded by women in bikinis. Basically, he feeds off envy. Think Scott Disick without the charm. He's also a gun nut who [...] If you're not familiar with Instagram star Dan Bilzerian, frankly you're probably better off. The self-proclaimed King Of Instagram is a rich d-bag who posts primarily about his leisurely party lifestyle jetting around tropical islands surrounded by women in bikinis. Basically, he feeds off envy. Think Scott Disick without the charm. He's also a gun nut who often posts pics of his insane collection (above) and brags about what he would do if someone broke into his home. Related: He Was Also Sued For Kicking A Woman In The Face Well, apparently he was present during the Las Vegas shooting -- and the videos he posted of his experience paint a different picture of his fight or flight response. While other concertgoers were helping strangers to safety, making tourniquets, shielding their loved ones, Bilzerian just ran. Well, he didn't JUST run. That part is understandable. It was chaos. But the reason we know he ran instead of helping anyone else is because his hands were full. Of his phone. While he filmed himself for clicks on Instagram Story. He begins his video with him telling his 23 million followers: "Holy fuck this girl just got shot in the fucking head!" He then picks up the vid again in his car, saying: "Stupid ass me didn't bring a gun." FUCK stay out of Las Vegas! #activeshooter pic.twitter.com/CrfyiDVx4W — Dan BiIzerian (@iDanBilzerian) October 2, 2017 Bilzerian was mocked for his cowardice online, by both social media users and think pieces in the Washington Post. Related: This Is Also The Guy Who Threw A Porn Star Off A Roof Even Marine vet and Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer had something to say, posting on IG: "This is why children shouldn't classify heroes by their followers or their photos. @danbilzerian, this is what kills me about people like you. Always playing 'operator dress up' and so so tough when the cameras are on. A woman just got shot in the head and you are running away filming; that's not what operators do. Please stop trying to be someone your not. People are dying, you're running away not helping them and pretending it's worthy of a video is disgusting." In response, Bilzerian called Meyer a "retard," posting: "So I wake up this morning and the news is talking shit saying some Marine was saying that I was a pussy for running away and that I should have stood my ground when the guy was shooting at me with a machine gun. So, I mean if we follow that retard's logic we'd probably have 600 dead if everyone stood their ground instead of running for cover." We doubt Meyer meant to just stand there; plenty of people helped their fellow citizens without taking the time to post to the 'gram. Related: Here's Just One Story Of Someone Who Saved Lives The backlash from all over pushed Bilzerian's pal to post a previously unseen moment from that night -- the social media star finding cover then when some cops run up asking one for a gun. When he tries dropping his creds, the cop, who is a little busy at the moment, says: "No, get the fuck away from me right now! I don't care! I don't know who you are!" Watch that moment (below): Dakota Meyer cue @danbilzerian running towards the hotel and shooter. Asking a cop for his pistol and being rejected which is understandable. That was funny af. Ask yourself does this look like the actions of a coward or a man trying to help? Calling him a coward was maybe premature and harsh. Dans methods won’t be in police training manuals either. Certainly creating conversation. Wouldn’t it be better served to bash the shooter? #f1firearmsA post shared by F-1 FIREARMS (@f1firearms) on Oct 4, 2017 at 8:32pm PDT This is Bilzerian's evidence that he was being a hero. Bothering police. We guess he's going to say if he'd actually had a gun that night he would have been able to take out the shooter. He told People: "It was a pretty strong wake up call. This stuff can happen without warning anywhere. It's not smart to get caught without a gun." Even after all this, he still believes he could have helped with ANOTHER gun, and that he would have been able to return fire without causing more loss of innocent life -- and wouldn't have been mistaken for the damn shooter himself. And some of his followers do, too. They're calling him a hero. Seriously. Related: Country Musician Who Survived Has A Different Opinion Bilzerian drew even more controversy after posting a photo apparently of the dead shooter Stephen Paddock, a closeup of his bloody head after a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The photo has not been confirmed, but the floor does match what we've seen in other pics of the suite. We won't show the pic on this site, but you can find it still live on Bilzerian's Twitter feed HERE. We do not recommend looking. At anything he posts really. What do YOU think of this "hero"?
