Social media users are pointing out Maui Police Chief John Pelletier previously served as incident commander during another mass casualty event: the Las Vegas Route 61 festival mass shooting.
The bizarre coincidence was highlighted by several social media users, who were immediately skeptical of Pelletier’s previous work on the mass shooting at Mandalay Bay that left 58 people dead, and his current overseeing of the response to the deadly Maui wildfire that’s killed at least 99 people.
Footage of Pelletier explaining why rescue crews have recovered so few bodies circulated over the weekend.
What are the chances that the Maui police chief, John Pelletier, just so happened to be the incident commander for the Las Vegas shooting in 2017?
Take a moment to think about that… Then ask yourself, what are the odds?
Interesting their governor took a vacation this week…

Conservative talk show host Stew Peters claimed, “We are watching a movie. John Pelletier is an actor.”
As incident commander during the Vegas mass casualty event, Pelletier would have been the lead person in charge of coordinating first responders at the scene of the shooting.
USA Today on Tuesday dedicated an article to highlighting the bizarre coincidence, pointing out Pelletier became the Maui police chief after two decades with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
From the USA Today article:
Maui Police Chief John Pelletier is no stranger to responding to mass tragedy. Nearly six years before disaster struck in the form of wildfires that ripped through parts of the island and killed at least 99 people, he was on the ground in the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
Pelletier was named chief of the the Maui Police Department in 2021 after more than two decades working in Las Vegas. On Oct. 1, 2017, Pelletier was the incident commander covering the Strip when a gunman unleashed a hail of bullets on a country music festival, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more.
Pelletier over the weekend referenced his experience in Las Vegas while describing the the long, painstaking process of identifying the remains of the dozens of people recovered from the burned area so far, and asked for patience with the process. Officials said they’ll start releasing names Tuesday, after families have been notified.
“Give us a little bit of time,” Pelletier said at a news conference. “We’ve got to go make 89 notifications. And coming from a place that had to make 58, I understand the pain this is going to take, and we’re not done with 89.”
Officials say they expect the death toll to rise significantly over the next several days as crews search the area burned in the wildfires.
“When we find these – you know, our family and our friends – the remains we’re finding is through a fire that melted metal. We have to do rapid DNA to identify them,” Pelletier said.
The problem as many are pointing out is Americans never really got answers explaining Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock’s motives, with many believing the case was deliberately swept under the rug and details were intentionally kept obfuscated.
Meanwhile, the LVMPD chief at the time of the Vegas shooting, Sheriff Joe Lombardo, went on in 2022 to win the governor’s seat, a coincidence not lost on some social media users.
The situation looks even more suspicious when taking into consideration Democrat Hawaii Governor Josh Green just announced his administration is already looking into acquiring properties in Lahaina destroyed by the recent wildfires.
The bizarre coincidences are leading many to question whether the terrible tragedy in Maui is a massive psy-op covering up a nefarious Build Back Better scheme, or some other sinister motive.
The globalists are increasing their attacks on Infowars and the stakes have never been higher!
