You may be right, but i just can't see losing a job to cause anybody to do this. To kill everybody you can? Not focus on those who actually did you wrong? I can't accept that as being a normal human reaction, under any stress...

I don't know if he was a psychopath, but here's some breaking profile on the guy.
He was recently laid off from IBM (assume good job) into a diving economy (where to work now?) and knowing IBM has just stated that they were going to do more outsourcing of jobs to India - the guy probably cracked and headed down to the local immigration office to have his breakdown.
IBM Job Cuts and Outsourcing
More will come out in the news, but there are some folks who are doing poorly in this economy and cannot handle the pressure. The guy should have gone to company-sponsored counseling. Depression and psychosis are real - they're chemical adjustments your brain and body make. So, the guy simply cracked and it's a real shame here.
Pray for the families of these legal immigrants who were looking for a better life that our great country was going to offer them.

An Asian guy who hates immigrants. What's up with that?
And his decision doesn't even make sense, he targeted the wrong place. The immigrants coming into this country are looking to become American and contribute to American society/economy. He should have flown to India if he wanted to get people who were "stealing" American jobs. Or alternatively, he could go to the head offices of IBM and knock off the guys firing Americans to hire Foreigners.
n the words of Terence McKenna: "it's going to get nuttier and nuttier" as we approach 2012. That is when his timewave zero flat lines. Watch for major news events on a weekly, then daily, then hourly basis as we approach the 2012 zero point. The history of man kinds novelty and habit is being compressed into the next 3 1/2 years.
