Youtube video sounds like the kid was trying to do his own take on an American Psycho (the movie) type monologue. I would of laughed in his face if he came talking some crazy ish like that to me. I just would never think to take someone acting like that seriously.

What a little Bi#ch when I was younger I felt ugly and depressed because i couldnt get a girl. Then one day I woke up and decided not to care what others thought of me including the opposite sex.

One i decided that my confedience went though the roof and guess what women flocked to that. It doesnt matter who you are what you look like how much money you have. If your not confident in yourself you will never find happiness or love.

Also whenever I went out activly looking for a GF or a one nighter I never had success. The min you stop looking for a girl and just be yourself with confidence one will fall in your lap. Worked for me. And im no Fabio.

I know what will fix this. GUN LAWS! Oh wait. They already have those. Alright Feinstein, any suggestions?

Do you have an alternative that would have stopped this?


Not gun control, obviously. HAHA!

Better education would be a good start, but then again, some people just don't want to go to school. I also think our government's ways of tolerance and other things are creating softies who can't handle the pressures of society, so they freak out. A more limited government and a government reform would solve a lot of issues, too.

And your useless dream of everyone being armed is a joke. Deaths would pile up more..people have proven time and time again..a lot of them should not be armed nor should they be the ones to decide you fate.



Everyone does not have to be armed. The thought alone that someone could be, is a very good deterrent.


Firearm laws are a joke, because it is people like you who insist any any law concerning guns is wrong, therefore allowing easier access to guns by criminals..but it is too late for anything to be done.


Make assumptions much? You don't know what I think about that. The fact still stands, your irrational, useless laws have accomplished absolutely nothing.

Forcing criminals into considering that others may be armed at least accomplishes something useful. Wow, maybe a few lives would actually be saved? ~$heopleNation

This bloke sounds just like me.

ive even been banned on this site with my site

the only difference is i dont kill people so i dont get sod all other than being banned from forums such as ATS. Thanks.

You people are all part of the problem.

His video says it as it is. Its not easy to hear, which is also part of the problem.

Also, its not about sex, its about participating in life, which he makes quite clear. He clearly says 'having to experience this place on my own'

He was mixed up, yes, and he committed the worst possible crime, no question, but other than that I cant help think everything he said was correct.

He was a 'nice guy' and had his stall laid out for the gils, but they didnt come.

Thats one of the reasons I laugh when women get beaten by their violent boyfriend. Its their voilent rep in most instances that they like. As i always say, better married to me than dead.

Also, they say he had aspernigers. Really. Ive had enough of all these labels. He was perfectly normal. There was nothing wrong with him. He was just very aware that his experience and menories were rubbish, that he would have to go through life, like me, feeling crap all the time.

Its a question of quality of life.

Its different if your not aware, if your ignorant of what you dont have, but he was sharp and aware.

Everyone on the web seems to be labelling him a creep right from the start. Thats essentially the problem.

Im not even sorry for the victims. I havent even seen them. Im not condoning it, but no one remembers or care for victims. Thats a sad fact for those who remember. Respect to the victims etc, but no one will ever care in that way.

I think it would be interesting to see who his 'friends' were. The people he had 'attempted' to communicate with at college?

I hear people say too often that they don’t know what to do. It may not be the total solution, but the first thing I would do is, take away the cell phones, the computer, the video games and the TV. I would then restore social grace in my family and make time to be with my family as a family.


Well said.

Ill add that due to the DSS, people are afraid to discipline their children for fear of them being kidnapped by the government. So these kids have no respect for their parents.

a reply to: Kryties Heart goes out to the victims family. Any words I can express isn't going to change anything. But weather you believe in a higher power or not, please send some positive thoughts and prayers their way, we all know they're going to need them.

Here we go again, yet another random mass shooting in the U.S. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...


What ?

Another one ?

Meaning people really do go around IGNORING the LAW that says people can't go around shooting others.

Considering the NON STOP sensationalism on the net, and main stream news.

I am desensitized to it anymore.

Yes he was. He was a nice person. Thats clear in his video.

You seem to want to label him a monster as it suits your kneejerk reaction to say a standard line. Maybe your a govt shill.

Its clear he was a 'nice guy' so dont split hears.

Like Nice Guy Eddy in reservoir dogs.

What he did was wrong. I agree.

People live living deaths. Clearly that doesnt bother you. Everyone has a reason for doing what they do, every gang killer, every rapist, every wife killer. Understanding those reasons is critical. If you cant do that then you dont belong in the game.

yawn, the endless, I stopped caring and girls flocked to me yarn...

Next you'll say that your uncled smoke 200 cigs a day and lived to be 120 years old.

I too stopped caring years ago but it got me knowwhere.

I don't mean to single you out PraetorianAZ, this is not solely aimed to you, I used your words as they seemed to sum up a number of posters offerings.

California gunman 'was filmmaker Peter Rodger's son'


Authorities have not confirmed the identity of the gunman, or that of the young man seen in the YouTube video.

But Peter Rodger's lawyer, Alan Shifman, said on Saturday that the "family believes the child was the perpetrator".

He said the son had Asperger's syndrome...


autism.org.uk

Here we explain more about Asperger syndrome - a form of autism - including the three main difficulties that people with Asperger syndrome share, how many people have the condition, and what may cause it.

As soon as we meet a person we make judgements about them. From their facial expression, tone of voice and body language we can usually tell whether they are happy, angry or sad and respond accordingly.

People with Asperger syndrome can find it harder to read the signals that most of us take for granted. This means they find it more difficult to communicate and interact with others which can lead to high levels of anxiety and confusion.

Asperger syndrome is a form of autism, which is a lifelong disability that affects how a person makes sense of the world, processes information and relates to other people.


There have been numerous comments about the video and to me too it seemed... very off. Not just what was being said but how it was being said. Like a poor/lazy Hollywood script. Perhaps there's the reason for that particular shortcoming.

Just ftr, I couldn't give two hoots about being some bleeding-heart progressive/liberal. I simply think in order for us as a society to become better it's more important to try and gain some understanding (a la stop shooting 'cowards' in WWI for example) than loudly adopting a stance formed from opinion born of that favoured internet love-child, righteous indignation, and based upon nothing more than the level of immediate emotional satisfaction it offers...
    or using still warm corpses to make a point. As appealing to as it may be to desperate political vampires I don't think it actually helps.

What gets me is the authorities were warned WEEKS before this happened.........and did nothing

But people are still gonna blame guns........

Not the failure of the mental healthcare system.......or the utter incompetence by the nations police departments

Actually to say you are amused shows a grudge and sociopathic tendencies.I can say my life was hard and I was betrayed by love but there came a point where I said to my self to stop caring and sure as hell someone showed up.I didn't get Raquel Welch but then again I wouldn't want one.Not that I am any kind of prize.Yet I could kill people like that and sleep without a care...which would be MY tendencies as a result of warfare. So saying that because you are lonely (or picky) is NO excuse it just means the man had no means of control and was weak.

Florida man goes on deadly shooting spree after girlfriend reneges on Triple Whopper promise

Still think everyone should be armed.


Of course I do. Then the 70 year old Man might not be dead, and the child would not have been injured. If we got really lucky, that piece of crap would be the one that is now dead. ~$heopleNation

i dont think i have a grudge but i can emphasise with it.

Usually I dont log in , but this is so unusaul I thought I would.

I dont think the reason he gave was the true reason. I think it was a sympton of his long term train of thought. He was in a rut. he got an idea in his head. Ideas like that are not rational. If a life changing event had happened just before like he got a job or had a great social opportunity or moved he would probably have grown up normal. this means that ruts like that are dangerous. Young people often get in ruts. they get an idea and they become obsessed.

I dont think there is a solution, and in fact I think we should accept it as a matter of fact. The learning curve there is to understand that it happens, accept it, and not hide it behind 'illness' and then figure out how we can alleviate it. Its a social issue, but society is greedy and cruel.

This is why I 'try' to be kind. Not for people like him, but for low life murderers. I try to think, for example, in traffic, if I annoy that person will they go home and kill their wife? Is my action the final straw? Its hard, because murderers are generally unpleasent. But by accepting pain, ie not fighting back, you can actually help save peoples lives. I try to think of this in traffic. You can see people trying to get out and if they look rough, like a criminal its easy to think, no chance dude!! But really, if you suck back, and let them out, its just a little thing, but it could be the thing that helps out.

As such, and I know its a leap, but maybe if a girl had offered him a favour once he wouldnt have done what he did?

the thing is, girls get it a bit easier. They dont have to try that hard, and it leads to ignorance as they dont understand sufferenace as well.
