Is he a Democrat? An Obama supporter? My guess is yes. Let’s prevent persons who are Democrats and Obama supporters and their offspring from owning weapons. That will cut down on serial murders.

Article doesn't say.

It doesn't identify him as a supporter of a Tea Party candidate so I guess by process of elimination....

I think it means he was a looser produced by 2 individuals that really didn’t want him...or... each other, so he made up “excuses” for all his inadequacies that he damn sure knew the reasons for and took 7 other peoples lives because his sucked thanks to his self absorbed Hollywood parental units.

Girls not liking or wanting him was not a problem.his parents not liking or wanting him was.

Just MOP

Yep if his family were Republicans that information would have already come out..you know how leftists are, the second something happens they start researching to find out party affiliation..since his daddy is a hollywood director, most likely, leftist schmuck

I am not sure you can categorize “crazy” as republican or democrat. I think it’s categorized as “certifiable” or “batshit.”

He didn’t have any women in his life? I thought that was the opposite of being miserable and being driven crazy. :)

The question I always have with these unexplainable shootings is whether the shooter is or ever has been on legal mind-destroying “meds”. Most often, when we can get the information, the answer is yes.

Whenever you see an acronym, put it in your search engine, and it will usually explain the term. I am not ‘hip’, but using that method, I sometimes appear to be ;)

Just making his own “Hunger Games” statement.

In their minds, that dystopia that is “Hunger Games” really does exist, and this was just acting out the part.

Affluenza was just part of the syndrome.

Young, fit, good looking, rich, and Hollywood, and he couldn’t get laid, that is a guy with some obvious problems, to be so repulsive that no female would find a way to want to connect with his wealth and assets, tells me that his creepy videos don’t tell us nearly how creepy this guy must have been in person.

You cannot. But that will not deter a cohort of FReepers doing it anyway.

“self absorbed Hollywood parental units”

Good phrase! The parents, or lack thereof, are likely at the root of the problem.

Parents state they notified police prior to the shooting about the son’s youtube vid.

Kid used a semi-auto handgun.

Go to his father’s website. Go to the Cheeky tab and take a look at the parental influence in action...looks like pictures of his mother nude in various locations.

I resemble that remark.

I think what we're really doing is poking the Men Seeking Men media in the eye or rushing to identify one nutjob's political affiliations but not another's.

Besides, you have to be at least partially batsh*t crazy to be a DemocRAT.

The guy is not bad looking. He’s the son of someone with money and Hollywood society.

He couldn’t get any girls? I’m sure he could’ve. That is his mental illness speaking.

True, but like with Donald Sterling, if you hear libs screaming “He’s a Republican” it usually means the opposite..til this day Dems still say that Sterling is a Republican even though he’s donated money to the likes of Patrick Leahy

A product of the femi-nazi culture of emasculating "aggressive boys" with Prozac, Ritalin, etc.?

Or just a bored(hollywood...open for defining)spoiled-a$$ rich kid playing out his OWN hollywood script/video game?

I agree. Some people try to find political motivations behind every act of violence. And then there's idiots here trying to tie this to Islamic terrorism because his mom may have been Moroccan.

Fact is, there's a lot of untreated mental illness in this country. Schizophrenia usually manifests itself in young men during their late teens to early 20s. This guy had probably showing signs of mental issues that his friends and family were in denial about.

Agreed! He was a malignant narcissist with a psychopathy. Thankfully, this is rare. I think everyone should watch his video; It’s instructive as per identifying these types.
I think most of us have met one in our lives.
