In diary, shooting suspect shares despair, intent to kill


edition.cnn.com

"Moving into Christmas again. No girlfriend since 1984, last Christmas with Pam was in 1983. Who knows why. I am not ugly or too weird. No sex since July 1990 either (I was 29)."

By December 26, the writer seems to have picked a date. "I will shoot for Tuesday, January 6, 2009, at maybe 8:15. I have list of to-do items to make."

In an entry dated January 5, he laments, "Every evening I am alone, and then go to bed alone. ... Why should I continue another 20+ years alone? I will just work, come home, eat, maybe do something, then go to bed (alone) for the next day of the same thing.

I'd like to outline this story under the perspective of the diary of a killer.
It is terrible what harm loneliness can cause to people. I think it is one of the great hidden plagues of this modern world. There are too many lonely and depressed people, murder and suicide rates are high in the West and close to non existant in the developing world.
Add to this an unstable character and easy access to firearms and you have the recipe for tragedies.
My prayers to the victim's families.

It's sad because it doesn't have to be that way.

If i'm ever lonely, it's my own fault. No matter what you look like, what you are into, even if it's the weirdest thing in the world, there are many others out there just like you.

You just have to make the effort to find company or something to occupy your time (apart from killing that is).

well i wouldent be suprice if there is hormon usage in his history ,
but at the same time cant stop laughing at the fellow self pitty.

heck if all he needed was some scoring all he´d had to do was to fill his wallet with cash and go to a legal brothel,
i mean if paraplegic people do it and they cope with life then how on earth cant a fellow who stands on two legs not get relif from it?

or if you want friend no matter what , just buy a mmorpg and if you dont find friends then your social skills lack something.

still, killing over lack of cameltoe , what a retard.

Jeez,couldnt he have just joined a dating site rather than kill all those poor people?If he was hung up on lack of sex,then pay for an escort every so often to blast the cobwebs away.

Not write about it in a poxy diary!

of course this runs deeper,had father issues and was hurt in his last serious relationship(I would think)

what a waste of all those lives

Its his own damn fault he was alone

A real man for sure!$

He is a disgusting and sick Coward! and will pay on the other side.

Has to go after innocent girls and women, then kills himself! Double Coward! No clue or concept of reality for this woman hater.

I wish these p_ssy-s would grow some balls, grow up, and start taking responsibility for their life and stop blaming the world!

If he only focused his disgusting life on anything but Himself, for maybe just a minute or so, who knows?!


By the way, this is not about gun control!!! Period.


And now again, the media and himself paints him as the Victim!?? I want to throw up.


I pray for the families of the injured and the ones that passed. I can't bring myself to forgive and pray for him, yet.

Well I am single, lonely at times perhaps, but I don't let it depress me. I think of it more as freedom. I imagine that if this guy didn't worry about being single he would have had a good life and never want to hurt anybody.

What he did was beyond sick, but as usual they want to label the loner/hermit (And I read that in a news article "his neighbors said he stopped visiting them and was a loner" like visiting neighbors is what everybody does these days) as a danger towards depression and "snapping" like this.

These are touchy subjects, but I just want to point out you can't really pick on loner types with this. Because I just responded to a post about a married woman who hired a hitman to kill her spouse...

Sad times we live in, these people are not acting naturally, they are dysfunctional to the extreme. But that dysfunction, people who literally can't function or be "happy" without a proper mate... they share in this dysfunction in their own, less extreme way.

I thought this was an excellent article: Reven ge Of The Nerd: What The Media Won’t Tell You About The Rampage Killer Who Attacked A Pittsburgh Aerobics Class

A snippet:


Because this massacre is really about the desperation and hate so common in America. You can’t understand yesterday’s health club massacre in Pennsylvania, leaving 3 women dead, 10 injured, and the male gunman with his brains blown out, without recognizing this misery and hate. Most Americans’ lives have grown worse over the past three decades: today, average American male workers less than they did in 1979 in inflation-adjusted dollars, while the top 400 richest Americans own more than the bottom 150 million Americans, a wealth gap only found in tinpot Third World kleptocracies, and not seen here since 1928. That alone is reason enough to hate.

Even Warren Buffet admitted it in a interview with the New York Times: “There’s class warfare, all right, but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.” For some reason, only the rich have the courage to talk about it.


As for the killer himself, frankly I would have felt a lot more sympathy for this guy if he hadn't taken his anger out on a bunch of random innocent women.

RIP to the dead and a quick recovery to the wounded victims, hell for the killer.

A link to the full text of his rambling loserdom.

www.nypost.com...

Not that I could get past the first page; this guy was a needy, whiny, sulky validation-seeking choad. That will turn women OFF like a switch.
The FBI profilers will have a field day with that information.

The guy should have had "stalker" tattooed on his forehead (even tho he just tattood "loser" on his temple with a .45) . Probably went off the deep end when his wanking hand even rejected him.

If only he would've gone straight to suicide in a nice field where critters could've cleaned up his mess... Instead of subjecting others to pain.

To all of the people running this guy down, I would suggest that the kernel to do stuff this bad exists in all of you.

If he had met a woman at some point all of this would have probably been averted. A kind word here or there can make a huge difference, it can mean the difference between choosing to live and suicide, for example. Some people live on a razor's edge between making a success of their lives, or falling off the other way and dragging a bunch of people down with them when they go.

I'm not really concerned with calling this guy names just so I can feel morally justified. I just see the tragedy here for what it is. Senseless killing of innocent people all because of a man who could not find his place in society. Both of these things are tragedies. You make a mistake if you think I'm excusing him, or siding with him in anyway. I'm just looking at this as I would look at a car crash, and wondering why it had to happen.

I read a theory once that humanity could be classified as "weakly polygynous ." The word "polygyny" is distinct from but related to "polygamy:" The former means "multiple women for one man" while the latter means simply "multiple partners" and can be used for either gender.

Species classified by biologists as "weakly polygynous" include many different types of birds and mammals, with the most pronounced non-bird example perhaps being sea lions. The word "weakly" is used because they are not always polygynous...sometimes they pair off in "marriage-like" situations, depending on environmental conditions. For example, a certain species of bird (a type of tern) can be found in two distinct colonies: one in Maryland and one in Georgia. The former is quite obviously polygynous, while the latter tends to be monogamous, although they are the same species. The food they eat is more plentiful in Maryland, whereas it is scarcer in Georgia. It is suspected that by "pairing off" into male-female exclusive partnerships, the birds can more effectively gather food in Georgia. In Maryland, where the pickings are better, they can indulge in a more "freewheeling" love life, so to speak.

Polygynous species are defined by differences in male and female body sizes. The taller/bigger the males are than the females (as seen dramatically in sea lions), the more polygynous the species. This is because the males in these situations fight over the females. The generally slightly larger body size of the average human male compared with the average human female is evidence of this trait in humans.

When times were materially tougher (i.e., in most of recorded history), you see strong marriage values...just like the birds in Georgia. When things get more decadent (ancient Rome or Babylon, or modern-day society), these bonds start to disintegrate. In humans, this can be seen in what my friend informally calls the "70-30 law:" 30% of the males are "playas" who get 70% of the women, while 70% of the men have to divvy up the remaining 30% of the women, with many men getting nothing. This is a bit extreme (I don't think those figures are scientifically accurate), but we can definitely note the phenomenon of "poor loser" males with nothing having little or no sex life, while richer men have wives, multiple mistresses, etc. This is clearly polygyny in action.

It has also been proposed that at some point in our prehistory, we began marriage as a form of "sexual socialism" to appease men like the shooter in this story. Apparently if too few men gather too many women into their harems, it creates unstable societies where the men are constantly fighting for the women. Stable marriage/partnerships create stable societies. When this system begins to break down, man reverts to his more "natural" polygynous instincts, and one side effect is violence among the losing males in this process...as can be seen in this terrible tragedy.

What, do you know his mind?

Not saying what he did isn't despicable, but you really have no clue that he merely chose to be an evil person. He could have had a horrible life and was probably very tormented.

My thoughts go out to the victims families, including the family of the killer/suicide victim.
