“Dr”. Lee’s (unrequested) Opinion: The subject may simply have been a Hypochondriac with intermittent insomnia, paranoia and OCD affectations. Paranoia was made worse by his increasing megalomania and a “God” complex.
The subject is likely to have rejected any talk or discussion therapy, due to his general distrust of other people, and his preference of self administered medications. Medications often tended to produce unpredictable and undesired effects because the subject took them with alcohol or other recreational drugs.
Benzos are evil. I have a relative whose young boss is showing some of the more wicked side effects of the worst of the benzos. She was having such a hard time with her “pill to be calm” (comments indicating addiction), difficulties with words, emotional and perception abnormalities, yellow skin and other problems, that I did a search and brought the printed results to her. Sure enough, a match. She thanked me profusely (conspicuously so).
Her family doctor (GP? DO?) has had her on those pills for around two years! She was also taking them while pregnant! ...certainly quacks like a...quack, that quack.
She said she would try to go off of those pills *very* gradually. Not much chance of that, of course. She agreed to get help with it, if she doesn’t manage it herself. Sad.
Weird stuff and obviously on a large scale across the country along with the opioids and all. Boot camps would have been a less expensive and less homicidal way to deal with many of the drug zombies. But those camps quickly went to pot decades ago, when instructors fresh out of Army combat specialties were politically pushed out in favor of emotional, vindictive, judicial civilians.
Also an obvious lack of physical coordination at times in the benzo addict, by the way (dropping things, missing things handed to her, etc.), which was until that talk we had answered with “need to take another pill.” A real mess. Told her to tell her doctor, too, and see what the reply will be.
I agree with the OCD. Gloves also to keep the germs off, and/or to keep itching ones hands due to excessive hand washing.
The OCD is very apparent to me with his VERY neat stacks of magazines, the one gun with the bipos placed PERFECTLY parallel to the wall.
You could be a profiler. That description seems to fit - with what we now know. I find it interesting that there is such a wide variation of witness descriptions of the shooter’s behavior. Made me think about my own life and what people I interact with would say about my behavior. Many that gambled with the shooter say he was a complete asshole when drinking alcohol.
His preference for self administrated medications? Plural? Huh?
Two prescriptions filled in two years of low dosage Valium?
