California drive-by shooting: ‘Son of Hunger Games assistant director’ Elliot Rodger suspected of killing six
Elliot Rodger, named locally as the son of the assistant director of the Hunger Games films, is suspected of shooting dead six people in a rage against being rejected by women
The gunman, named locally as Elliot Rodger, was identified as the 22-year-old son of Peter Rodger, an assistant director on the blockbuster Hunger Games film series.
His step-mother was Soumaya Akaaboune, an actress who appeared in The Green Zone and was a star a French language version of The Real Housewives reality television franchise. He appeared with her and his father on the red carpet for The Hunger Games premiere in 2012.
After detailing how “girls have never been attracted to me,” he threatened to slaughter members of a college sorority house a group for female students - and then “take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there.”
He said: ‘I’m 22 years old and I’m still a virgin. I’ve never even kissed a girl,’ he says in the video.
He delivered a a tirade about his ‘loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires and blames women for preferring obnoxious brutes to him, ‘the supreme gentlemen.
“Indeed. The video is full of purely narcissistic, twisted sickness.”
I got the same thing out of the video. There was no political or religious content what so ever. He blamed women for his own shortcomings.
Too bad this video will give others ideas.
The fact this tragic shooting incident occurred on a Friday evening leading into the three day Memorial Day weekend guarantees this story won't have legs.

You may not recall but in the late 60s the anarchists from UCSB burned the Isla Vista branch of the Bank of America. Sounds like UCSB presents a real public nuisance and ought to be closed for everyone’s safety.
“Gun laws in California regulate the sale, possession, and use of firearms and ammunition in the state of California in the United States.
The gun laws of California are some of the most retrictive in the United States. A Handgun Safety Certificate, obtained by passing a written test, is required for handgun purchases, although there are exemptions to this requirement. (This requirement was extended to long guns on January 1st, 2014. Handguns sold by dealers must be “California legal” by being listed on the state’s roster of handguns certified for sale. Private sales of firearms must be done through a licensed dealer. All firearm sales are recorded by the state, and have a ten-day waiting period. Unlike most other states, California has no provision in its state constitution that explicitly guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms”
