"The rampage left six dead and 13 hurt, with eight suffering gunshot wounds, four hit by the suspect's vehicle and one suffering a minor injury "of unknown origin," Brown said.......
.........First, three men were "repeatedly stabbed" and killed inside Rodger's residence. They weren't identified.
Next, members of the Alpha Phi sorority in Isla Vista reported hearing loud knocking on the front door for several minutes. Nobody answered. Several minutes later, witnesses saw three women in front of the sorority house shot by a man from across the street. Two were killed, one wounded. All were UC Santa Barbara students.
Rodger drove his black BMW several blocks, went into a delicatessen and shot Christoper Martinez to death, officials said. Martinez was a UC Santa Barbara student.......
.....Richard Martinez, father of Christopher Martinez, said to reporters. "Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights, what about Chris' right to live? When will this insanity stop?"....
....One victim, Nick Pasichuke, told CNN he was struck by the gunman's car.
"There are six other people currently hospitalized with me right now. ... There was a guy driving a BMW. I was on a long board and he aimed his car at our group of friends and gunned it into us. I have two broken legs and need surgery. The police said I flew roughly 50 feet into a busy intersection. This is all so crazy."
Ian Papa said he was inches away on the street when the gunman's car sped up and struck two bicyclists......

Gun - (12) 4 shot to death (inc killer shooting himself), 8 wounded.
Car - (4) injured victims run down by killer with his car
Unknown - (1) wounded (unspecified/unknown origin)
Knife, gun, car. The guy’s a triple-threat killer.
Blaming this on the NRA is like blaming AAA for vehicle deaths.
Don't leave out blaming Swiss Army Knives for he stabbing too.
Up next: Craftsman Hammers....
He only killed two females, that was a break, since earlier it sounded like he was going to concentrate on them.
I don’t fault the father for blaming anything after losing his son, but you know the networks will be fanning these particular flames of anger.
That father’s blame sounded like a thought out political statement, by someone not wanting to waste the media opportunity.
He is probably aware that the right play on this could turn into a generous payoff for him, in politics or activism.
And don’t forget BMW worked for HITLER!
“Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights, what about Chris’ right to live?”
Gun rights are directly related to peoples’ right to live. Why not blame the psycho kid and his ireesponsible parents? The guy used weapons other than guns, and obviously was bent on killing whether he had guns or not. Why do all these dems insist on using their children as political tools? Talk about besmirching their memories.
You owe me a new computer screen for that one.
Important the Mainstream Ministry of Information is pushed to convey these inconvenient facts.
Prayers and condolences to the families of the victims.
I’m not sure if I’m quite THAT cynical, but time will tell if you were right. I they end up touring the country like certain other Special Guest Grievers such as Gabby Gifford and her ex-astronaut husband, or Trayvon’s frowning, money grabbing, race baiting parents, we will know they may be opportunists.
FULL TRANSCRIPT OF 'ELLIOT RODGER'S RETRIBUTION' YOUTUBE VIDEO
Hi, Elliot Rodger here. Well, this is my last video. It all has to come to this. Tomorrow is the day of retribution, the day I will have my revenge against humanity, against all of you.
For the last eight years of my life, since I hit puberty, I've been forced to endure an existence of loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires, all because girls have never been attracted to me. Girls gave their affection and sex and love to other men, never to me.
I'm 22 years old and still a virgin, never even kissed a girl. And through college, 2 1/2 years, more than that actually, I'm still a virgin. It has been very torturous.
College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. In those years I've had to rot in loneliness, it's not fair.
You forced me to suffer all my life, now I will make you all suffer. I waited a long time for this. - Elliot Rodger.
You girls have never been attracted to me. I don't know why you girls aren't attracted to me but I will punish you all for it. It's an injustice, a crime because I don't know what you don't see in me, I'm the perfect guy and yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men instead of me, the supreme gentleman. I will punish all of you for it.
On the day of retribution, I am going to enter the hottest sorority house at UCSB and I will slaughter every single spoiled, stuck-up, blond slut I see inside there. All those girls I've desired so much. They have all rejected me and looked down on me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance toward them, while they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes.
I take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you., You will finally see that I am, in truth, the superior one, the true alpha male. [laughs] Yes, after I have annihilated every single girl in the sorority house, 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 while I've had to rot in loneliness all these years. They all look down upon me every time I tried to join them, they've all treated me like a mouse.
Well, now I will be a god compared to you, you will all be animals, you are animals and I will slaughter you like animals. I'll be a god exacting my retribution on all those who deserve it and you do deserve it just for the crime of living a better life than me.
The popular kids, you never accepted me and now you will all pay for it. Girls, all I ever wanted was to love you, be loved by you. I wanted a girlfriend. I wanted sex, love, affection, adoration.
You think I'm unworthy of you. That's I crime I can never get over. If I can't have you girls, I will destroy you. [laughs] You denied me a happy life and in turn I will deny all of you life, it's only fair. I hate all of you.
Humanity is a disgusting, wretched, depraved species. If I had it in my power I would stop at nothing to reduce every single one of you to mountains of skulls and rivers of blood and rightfully so. You deserve to be annihilated and I will give that to you. You never showed me any mercy so I will show you none.
You forced me to suffer all my life, now I will make you all suffer. I waited a long time for this. I'll give you exactly what you deserve, all of you. All you girls who rejected me, looked down upon me, you know, treated me like scum while you gave yourselves to other men. And all of you men for living a better life than me, all of you sexually active men. I hate you. I hate all of you. I can't wait to give you exactly what you deserve, annihilation. [end]
“.....Rodger was living with roommates at the Independent Living Institute in Santa Barbara, a facility that offers ‘living skills instruction to help adults with disabilities to live more independently in their communities,’ according to the website.......
“He was born in August 1991 in Lambeth, South London, the scion of a family steeped in photography and the cinema.
His Malaysian-born mother Li Chin, now 53, and film director father Peter, 49, moved to Americas West Coast when Elliot was five and his younger sister Georgia only a baby.
Elliots grandfather, British photographer George Rodger, was one of the founders of the renowned Magnum photo agency, and covered the D-Day landings in 1944.
He was also the first photographer to enter the concentration camps at Bergen-Belsen, an experience which left a lasting impression on him, according to his widow Lois Jinx Rodger, herself a journalist and picture editor.
Speaking from her home in Kent, Elliots grandmother, 89, explained that he had suffered mental health issues for some time.
She said: He was a very disturbed boy. He lived in California but of course Id known him. This is just one of those very tragic things. I dont want to talk about it any more. This is a rather difficult time.........
Worked out pretty well for Gabby Giffords’ husband, didn’t it?
I’m willing to bet that he was anti gun before this happened, but it is a bit mean to assume that he is somehow overjoyed with this ‘opportunity’ the guy lost his son.

I’m not seeing how the NRA and crazy politicians fit into Elliot’s pathological timeline.
