Well, no perp description, so I guess I know what that means.
I’m gonna go ahead and guess that the MAIGgots and moms lookin’ for a little “action” are already crankin’ up their press releases. I think they have a boiler plate release in place and just have to fill in some blank spots like who, where, body count, firearms used etc.
Mom Morrocan, dad British. Money’d kid. Serious personality issues.
"Student enclave" sort of added "context" to the act in SB.
He must have been respectable ... he drove a Beamer.
Firearms used is already filled in with "semiautomatic assault rifle."
Ah, OK, terrorist attack.
I recall my child’s teacher wanted to take some kids to Morocco. I sent her an article about al quaida blowing up the market place and said no way.
Global Warming! Obviously the recent wildfires set off the killer’s behavior.
Info on this post re: the shooter. It’s all over social media since about 12:00 am or so, who it was. From what I can tell, officially they still haven’t released his name. He had very public warning signs for a year or more by his: youtube videos, blog, forum postings on a bodybuilder site and puahate.
Global Warming Climate Change Climate Disruption?
War on women?
I was just reading the linked Fox page....
How come I have to get information form the Brits and not from home ‘”journalists”?
looks kind of Asian and White... is that what you assumed? his video is very creepy... this happened on the street my niece lives on... she is graduating from UCSB this spring... she is currently on a vacation in Southeast Asia, so she was not there when it happened... of course, she is upset... and grateful to have heard from most of her friends at this time...
more like war on women... it was retribution... he was 22 and still a virgin... never had a girlfriend... never even kissed a girl... he was getting back at women for rejecting him, and at obnoxious guys who get to have sex with the gals who rejected him... he says all of this in his creepy video...
his name is Elliot Rogers...
Sudden Jihad Syndrome?
Commentors on story site blaming Tea Partiers.
. Should we give a damn?
he’ll make a perfect democrat politician ENTITLED Arrogant homely bitter...and aggressive
We must move to ban black BMWs.
Here is the youtube video of the shooter before he did it. What a society we have created. He name is Elliot Rodgers
I guess since the Brits and social media have printed it, our media might get around to it soon?
The link to the Real Housewives (French) of Beverly Hills episode in which the Hunger Games red carpet is shown. (the link is directly to the red carpet video with the shooter, his father, and stepmother)
I was commenting on the fact that the FoxNews linked story didn’t contain any description at all. They did provide a link to KYET-TV which likely has a video or pictures of the perp, but they chose to leave any perp description or picture out of the corporate FoxNews story, and I find that odd yet typical of national news organizations, FoxNews included.
That’s his step-mom; mother is Asian, dad a Brit. He was second unit director on The Hunger Games
“We have obtained and we are currently analyzing both written and videotaped evidence that suggest that this atrocity was a premeditated mass murder,” Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said during an early morning news conference Saturday.
Brown said that a YouTube video appeared to be linked to the shooting.
In the video, a young man, sits in the driver’s seat of a car as he promises “retribution” and discusses his “loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires.”
“Girls gave their affection and sex and love to other men but never to me,” he says. He adds that it’ll be his last video.
Police haven’t confirmed whether the person who posted the video or man in it is the suspect.
His videos are...I don’t have the words. (his channel before youtube takes it down) His uploads are all about loneliness, girls, love, and envy.
Yup. Even it it happened to be a muzzle loader or cap and ball revolver.
Here is a youtube vid of his archived posts on forums (someone captured them before deletion. i saw these on the forum about 2:00 am and by 3 or so, these were gone)
The punk seemed to fancy himself looking at the selfies in the Daily Mail article.
In this case, the daddy’s British, but as we all know, US sources seem to be under orders to report only what the Left wants reported. Details about mass murder by a gay-looking Moroccan mix ist verboten.
The killer should have listened when James Carville opined about about trailer parks and hundred dollar bills; at UCSB, a BMW and loads of daddy-cash are baseline expectations. Based on the D.M. photos, if the killer really wanted to attract girls (doubtful), he should have tried not to look like a gay Arab. (I don’t mean to be homophobic — frustration over gender confusion might be the cause of his rampage).
One of Holder’s people.
Had it been a white Christian, Tea Party person it would have been in sky lights.
Ah. Santa Barbara. A town so rich it’s drive- by shooters use BMW’s. ( yes they did)
The Koch brothers.
The issues with these mass murders are:
Go look at post # 5 and #15. Sheesh...
Women are attracted to power, money, or fame. This should have motivated him to acquire the knowledge and skills to get a good paying job. Then he could have hired all the beautiful escorts he could handle instead of feeling sorry for himself and wanting to kill them. Sheesh.
What the hell is going on at UCSB??? In the past 6 months, they've had a crazy fan rush the court, a professor go after a pro life demonstration, a gang rape,....and now this...
This priviledged idiot was driving a BMW-—and he put something on the web the night before he did this.
Was complaining about NOT getting ‘any dates’ with the girls he wanted & “Never’ having been kissed.
Just how far does the feeling of ENTITLEMENT go???
He didn’t appear to be black, but I pretty sure he wasn’t Swedish or Norwegian!!
To those who feel entitled there is no limit. Either you subscribe to the philosophy that you have to work to achieve things, or you go the other way and decide that everything that you want should be yours simply because you exist (And you are wonderful or you have been told repeatedly by political whores that the fact you do nothing and have nothing is someone else's fault) and you want it (see 0bama voters)

The young man was clearly the murderer, as he boastingly planned to be. However, the parents have got to be thinking, did we overlook certain signs for years? I’m presuming they weren’t aware of his madness, not to that degree. His anger may have become intensified because he had an almost androgenous look to him. Some pre- teen girls like that,(i.e. Justin Bieber) but many women seem to prefer a more adult look (Brad Pitt).
I was struck by his comments that he was isolated. Why? Maybe he had some form of Asbergers Syndrome, a type of high functioning autism, where the subject has very little sense of intuition, and social cues are missed or wrongly interpreted. He often posted to some website based on guys who felt rejected by women and were bitter about it. I read some posters on that site were calling his murders a ‘heroic’ action. That is a dangerous site, and should be taken down asap.
I was also struck by his androgyny, and wondered if he was a self-hating gay--could be. But ultimately, I still feel that his parents told him how wonderful he was day and night, but the world did not agree--this crushed him.
He was not crazy--a bit sociopathic--but not crazy. He was totally self-absorbed and had no feelings for how others might feel. That is part of sociopathy.
