Until something comes out to show some solid proof of what he was thinking on all this, I'm going to hang my hat on my first impressions.
He got in trouble in school. Financial Aid perhaps, Academics, Relationships..something. What it was may not matter as much as the fact trouble came
and he was becoming an ex student. So, what he spent much of his life pursuing, for some reason, became past tense without having gained anything in
The economy sucks, jobs suck and people at my own college who are close to graduating aren't happy and proud. They're scared. Literally. If there
isn't a job? Well, I personally believe that between that reality and the mountain of student debt he'd have likely had at this point, he
"snapped", but didn't go postal. No, this one was a PHD Candidate and a 15% achiever academically. He planned how to gain immortality, avoid facing
the real world he had nothing to face it with, and come out without a scratch in the end.
Well, He would seem to have set a bomb at home to trigger attention and blow the building the first time someone opened it. Perhaps that neighbor,
seeing about the raging music turning on suddenly and for no apparent party or other reason. The whole city and parts of the surrounding ones likely
would have rolled to THAT call. Exploding Apartment Building calls don't come every day. That would have given him a free hand much longer at the
Then heck... he's decked out to literally stand upright in a firefight and shoot back. We've watched it. He must have. he dressed just like 'em. He
armed himself just like them...except he favored American, not Russian. Nice touch...bah. Beyond that, he was as 100% sure as anyone ever could be
that he would not get surprised by a CCW or other hero while he did what he went to do.
Then...his gun jams.. Oops... Cleanliness is next to Godliness on that rifle. Someone forgot to mention that, and aren't so many lucky for it. That
ended his plans tho...so heck, I'm guessing by then he was already deaf, (no one mentioned it..and I doubt HE thought of it..they never seem to on
ears), and had just seen more carnage by his own hand than most soldiers may see in a career.....
He stumbled out and was found almost immediately without his main weapon (inside..where it jammed..and the fact he LEFT it says a lot too - He had a
car LOAD of ammo, or they keep saying. Yet, he dropped and walked from his main weapon) and what was he going to do then? No explosion....his gun
jammed...and here is a cop, on top of him before he probably realized it. Oops...
Time to PLAY the part! Well...by reports..he's been playing a full blown whacko ever since, but a whacko didn't plan and do this. He's smart, cold
and calculating, IMO....and he got his retirement plan with fame in his mind, and without getting a single scratch on himself.
I still wish..he hadn't been taken without incident. To put it nicely. He got everything I believe he did this for, except for more casualties.
*OP, Thanks for a spot for everyone to kinda lay out what they think happened here by the facts! It'll be interesting to see how the truth comes out.
