Nothing on the front page, had to dig to here to find anything on this.

Plastered all over CNN now, they've all but verified that the above video is the shooter.

Witnesses described the BMW as having two guys in it. Lots of police action is still going on, possibly related to the other person.

The Santa Barbara Independent said the car at the scene of the drive-by massacre has the same license plate as the car owned by the man in the video.

So, after watching his video, arrogant little prick wonders why no girls will give him the time of day?  Maybe it's because of you being an arrogant little prick who wears desperation as cologne.
 
2014-05-24 11:18:33 AM  
Well, I don't know if that video was more creepy or laughable. His whole beef is rejection from girls and that he's still a virgin (therefore he's going to shoot as many hot girls and the guys that get to have sex with them as he can).

Assuming he's mentally ill and creepy as hell, I understand women not wanting to be around him. The odd thing is he's extraordinarily pretty, he has model looks that otherwise may have attracted both men and women. And he's going to college and driving a new BMW. I guess the psychosis was kind of a deal breaker.

Women were definitely smart to avoid him. It would be stalker city if one had shown interest.

I just cannot fathom how this kid gets access to a semi-automatic firearm.  Whether he is mentally ill or not, the kid had issues.

If you watch the shooter's videos (he has about 20 posted over the last 3 months on youtube, under the name "Eliot Rodger"), and in his final 'retribution' video, made about a day before his killing rampage, he sounds like .....well, a commenter put it best "an alien trying to speak normal English" ---- he uses words strangely, and unnaturally. Sort of like the difference between writing and conversational speech. Here is an example: "I'll take to the streets of Isla Vista, and slay every single person I see there......all those popular kids who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure."

WTF

He's 22 years old. I'm going to go with "Bought it".

And that YouTube video sounds like an MRA jerk-off made it.
 
2014-05-24 11:25:55 AM  
From the video the shooter posted on You Tube (just look for "Elliot Rodgers Retribution "), he sounded like some Chris Chan "Virgin With Rage" who wined about all boys having pretty girlfriends and he had none. Poor dumbass has no idea just how lucky he really was in Life, not having someone who would drain his money and force him to like the things she likes.

2014-05-24 11:27:16 AM  

Word on the street quickly spread about an ominous YouTube video posted by a young man who identified himself as Elliot Rodger, titled "Retribution." The nearly seven minute long rant blasts women who've ignored or rejected him over the past eight years and warns that he will "punish you all for it."


Seems to be a common theme with mass-shooting nutjobs.

Darwin dodged a bullet there.
Hmm, perhaps I could have phrased it better.


Not making light of the tragedy. He's a freaking psycho, and I wished he had taken himself out of the gene pool before murdering others, and my thoughts go out to all of those shot and the families of those killed.

"Mentally ill gunman"?

That's just sick.
 
2014-05-24 11:35:51 AM  
His video made me think he might have been gay and not realized it yet.  Maybe he set the ladies' gaydars off (along with being a pretentious and insufferable prick) and that's why he was a failure at getting his noodle wet.

We must immediately enact Legislation that prevents Directors, Producers and Executive Producers from having children. It's the only way to be safe.

Quote -  'I'm going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB and I will slaughter every single spoilt, stuck-up, blonde s**t that I see inside there. All those girls that I've desired so much, they would've all rejected me and looked down on me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them,' he says.

Clearly the NRA is to blame.

Narcissistic.
Personality.
Disorder.

I have dealt with this type before - not the "yeah, that guy's a narcissist" type, but the clinically diagnosed, on medication for it type of narcissist. Here's what I know: Bad shiat happens when they are confronted with a world that is completely different from the reality that they've created for themselves. It's like waking up a sleepwalker and having them go berserk. Narcissism works when a person is successful enough that reality resembles the version of the world that they think they live in. But when they fail... oh, man.

That, and this guy also seems to have some other crazy shiat going on, too.
 
2014-05-24 11:37:00 AM  
I am pretty sure the BMW itself fired the shots or somehow impelled the driver to this heinous crime. I smell a delicious lawsuit cooking.
/total bad joke
 
2014-05-24 11:37:28 AM  
Misogynist, entitled piece of shiat.

For all the reasons in the world, you murdered strangers for having the gall of not having sex with you???

Jesus Christ that pisses me off. This guy isn't the first either. Lots of shooting whack jobs are deep seated misogynist pricks who take their failure at human relations as a personal insult from all women.

This is why I roll my eyes when some MRA talks about how cruel women are turning men down. That kind of entitled thinking begets idiots like this.

2014-05-24 11:39:38 AM  
I watched some of his other videos, he kept going on about how his father was British and came off like he was too rich and sophisticated for the ignorant peasants around him, basically a spoiled, egotistical and clearly mentally ill douchebag. I can't imagine why girls weren't fawning over him.

2014-05-24 11:40:17 AM  
Sounds eerily similar to the kid who plowed his BMW (or Saab) through some IV students a few years back.  His dad was a director, he had money, privilege, and a mental health issues.
 
2014-05-24 11:40:19 AM  
I didn't hear anything about a sorority on the news. My suspicion is that he went there but the door was locked so he just started hitting the streets. He seems like a terrible actor in the video. Also what's with the chuckling. He's trying to seem like a diabolical evil person, but he just comes off as forced and awkward and trying too hard. No wonder he had a hard time with girls. He's just not that genuine or interesting or calm. I'll grant him this: 22 is a tough age to be lonely. This video is an amazing document. Got repetitive by the end. Glad he's gone.

In the Pittsburgh area we had a jackass shoot up a womens gym for similar reasons.  It's nothing new, but it's also nothing unique.  Rejection, paranoia, who knows what goes through the heads of these jackwagons who get all random shooty.  Ultimately there is little sense in trying to wrap one's rational mind around the motivations and actions of the severely mentally ill.  Logic and reason don't mean the same thing to these broken individuals as they do to normal folk.

In a way.  Nixon wanted to ban handguns from private ownership, but he backed down due to the NRA lobby.  The NRA has a lot of blood on their hands.

Watching the video, he pretty much had the arrogant/emotionless thing going that many serial killers do. American Psycho, anyone? Guy had looks and apparently cash, but he did exhume that exact same American Psycho-esque persona that's a red flag to most women that 1. he's a stalker, 2. rapist, 3. raging misogynist or 4. a school shooter waiting to happen.

Having looks and cash like that, you know he had to be farking up big time not to have been getting any hot pocket by that point.
