Clackamas Town Center shooting: Gunman was Jacob Tyler Roberts
The Oregonian ^ | 12.12.12 | Helen Jun

Posted on 12/12/2012 10:49:42 AM PST by Uncle Miltie

Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, was the masked man who stormed into Clackamas Town Center Tuesday afternoon, fatally shooting two people and wounding another before turning a gun on himself, police said.

Roberts does not appear to have a criminal history in Oregon, according to court records. He had two speeding tickets earlier this year.

Court records show that Roberts and a woman, Hannah Shoemake, were evicted last summer from their Happy Valley apartment.

Roberts' mother answered her door at her Portland home, but declined to comment to an Oregonian reporter. "I loved my son very much," she said.

Occupy Nut or Right Wing Supremist, it does not matter in the scheme of things when compared to about 40 million murders of unborn souls in more horrible ways than a sane man or woman can imagine. I say move on.

bleeeech....always important to keep your one and only point whether on topic or not.

Not being able to handle two thoughts at the same time is the sign of a very very simple mind

No. Not really. Whether it was an octagenarian in a land yacht with his foot stuck on the gas pedal thinking it was the brake, or a demented person who had access to a gun, the outcome isn’t much different.

The reason this is being promulgated is because of the anti-gun culture in the media. It pales in comparison to many, many tragedies that happen every day in this country. Your condescending one-track mind comments just fall right into that ooga-booga track the media intends for you to follow.

Theres a black man 57 who lives in Alabama named James Syler Robbins who belongs to the Tea Party is that close enough to tie rightwingers to the shooting?

and again your inability to hold two separate thoughts at the same time is the sign of a very very simple mind. You are locked into a singular vision that will indeed keep you from seeing the entire picture.... this is always dangerous

I am really curious if there is any connection between the 2 people killed and the shooter. And .. why would he stop shooting and kill himself if he hadn’t accomplished his goal? It could have been a “he liked her - she didn’t like him” type of thing; or the other guy moved in on her and she didn’t pay attention to the shooter anymore.

Jealousy .. unrequited love; lots of possibilities.

Sheriff (early on) commented there was no connection, but maybe there was something the police are just not aware of yet. The reason I’m curious is that he seemed to target a “couple” .. not totally random .. and he could have mistaken the girl who was wounded as being his real target.

Just thinkin’ out loud.

Killed...

Steve Forsyth, 45, of West Linn, Ore

Cindy Ann Yule, 54, of Portland

Injured...

A third shooting victim, Kristina Shevchenko, 15, was taken to a hospital and has undergone an initial surgery, according to a Facebook page set up by her family members. Family members said a bullet bruised her lung but avoided piercing any major organs.

There’s a murder being discussed here. Yes, there are many others, but some people want to discuss this one on a thread dedicated to it.

Interests include shooting. One profile pic is someone shooting a handgun.

His “About” says
“Hey what’s up guys my names Jake and I’m an alcoholic... Lol just kidding. If you were to ask someone that knows me they would probably say that I am a pretty funny person that takes sarcasm to the max. I’m the kind of person that is going to do what I want. There is no reason for another person to tell you what to do, I’m the conductor of my choo choo train. I may be young but I have lived one crazy life so far. My friends are my family and I don’t think that will ever change. I have done a lot for myself in the past year some good and some bad but I still press on. I like hanging out with my friends and having a good time maybe get a little drunk every now and then. I like to think of myself as a bit of an adrenaline junkie... Yup that’s right I’m a junkie lol. But I’m just looking to meet new people and see the world. Right now I work at the most badass gyro shop in town. I am one of the few people that can say I love my job and actually mean it. But if you want to know more about me send me a message. What’s up let’s party.”

Obviously, this is the girl.
Type of work wanted, according to the portfolio,
everything connected to the bright lights of showbiz.
Well, she’s got the bright lights now, but not the showbiz.

He doesn’t look like a Christian, too many earings.Did he have single parent upbringing? My bet is yes.He looks like he could be a young fellow of mixed Phillipino/Caucasian background, who maybe played one too many episodes of Assassins Creed.

Also had a missile launch from North Korea, but the media hears a man went and killed some people in a mall. They assume it is a white guy, so get hysterical... Funny how these shootings re used to scare everyone, in the inner cities of this country, people are shot and killed everyday, but the media doesn’t care because the shooters are known/assumed at the outset to be black.

This guy works/WORKED for an eatery, and shoots up a food court.

“I work at the most badass gyro shop in town.”

Connection?

One of his FB friends works for an eatery that has one of it’s locations at Clackamas Mall.

Coincidence?

Okay I am done with this.

Kid doesn’t read book, watches a lot of TV, and among his likes are “rappers” Tech N9ne and Brotha Lynch Hung.

IOW, all the makings of a soulless POS, which are a dime a dozen nowadays.

Don’t think the Hannah girl mentioned was involved with him anymore, but just speculating.

Jason DeCosta, a manager of a window-tinting company that has a display on the mall’s ground floor, said when he arrived to relieve his co-worker, he heard shots ring out upstairs.

DeCosta ran up an escalator, past people who had dropped for cover and glass littering the floor.

“I figure if he’s shooting a gun, he’s gonna run out of bullets,” DeCosta said, “and I’m gonna take him.”

Yes thanks for posting that FB link, we are curious because the left is so quick to assign political motives to these kinds of violence.

I don’t see any political but there’s a possibility of a revenge/hate motive.

You can almost hear the sighs of despair of the media because once again, the shooter isn’t a “White Supremacist Neo Nazi Neo Confederate Anti-Government Paramilitary Militia Radical Pro-Life Conservative Tea Party Member with a legally purchased Assault Rifle” (he stole it).

Did I leave anything out?

This miscreant didn’t give them their Poster Child for “Why We Need To Ban Guns” (don’t worry...they’ll come up with it anyway).

Prayers up for the families of the dead folks, either way. Nobody deserves to die like that. Too bad there wasn’t armed CCW citizens there.

Was it a “Gun Free Zone”? Worked real well, if so.

Either way, here it comes again.

You know, you’re right....

Why, just the other day, I caught one of mine trying to sneak out of the safe...crawling across the floor, looking for “innocent victims”...

“BACK!” I yelled...”BACK, you evil black plastic and metal spawn of the devil!”

It snarled at me a little, then whimpered as made a move to kick it and ran back into the safe.

It was a close call. I’d hate to think what would have happened had it made it out to the street...
