Blame Game: Elliot Rodger's Murderous Rampage!

Elliot Rodger
The nice guy is the most dangerous individual. Elliot Rodgers was rejected by society. He decides to launch an assault against everyone.

S. Baldwin broke the news of a California gunman who committed an act of terrorism at the University of California Santa Barbara.

A spree killing occurred in Isla Vista, California, starting with a stabbing attack at an apartment, followed by a series of drive-by shootings near the campus of University of California, Santa Barbara. Seven people were killed, including the attacker, and thirteen others were wounded.

The attacker was identified as 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, who was a student at Santa Barbara City College.

He was born in London, England, but moved to the United States when he was five years old. His father was filmmaker Peter Rodger, whose credits include working as an assistant director for The Hunger Games. His stepmother was actress Soumaya Akaaboune.

According to the Rodger family's attorney, Rodger saw multiple therapists and was a student at Santa Barbara City College. The lawyer also claims that Rodger was diagnosed with "highly functional Asperger syndrome" as a child and was allegedly bullied.

He had a YouTube account, a Facebook account, and a blog titled Elliot Rodger's Official Blog, all of which contained posts expressing loneliness and rejection.

A week prior to the shooting, his parents reported him to police after being concerned about his behavior and YouTube videos. During the past year, police had investigated Rodger three separate times, including one incident where he claimed he was beaten, but investigators presumed he was the aggressor.

Roger posted a video on YouTube on the day of the attack, titled Elliot Rodger's Retribution, in which he complained of being rejected by women and described details of his upcoming attack.

In the video, he laid out his motivations and plans, saying:

"Tomorrow is the day of retribution, the day in which I will have my revenge. ...You girls have never been attracted to me. I don't know why you girls aren't attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it."

Police said they were investigating the video.

In his 140-page manifesto titled "My Twisted World", he also outlined some of his plans:

"On the day before the Day of Retribution, I will start the First Phase of my vengeance: Silently killing as many people as I can around Isla Vista by luring them into my apartment through some form of trickery."

You can read this disturbing manifesto here.

Three people were killed during the shootings. They were identified as Katherine Cooper, 22, and Veronika Weiss, 19, both students at the University of California, Santa Barbara, who were killed at the sorority house; and Christopher Martinez, 20, another UCSB student who was killed at the Isla Vista Deli Mart. 

Three other men were stabbed to death repeatedly at the attacker's apartment prior to the shooting spree; their identities are currently unreleased, but they were confirmed to be the attacker's roommates.

Thirteen other people were injured, eight of them from gunshot wounds and four others by blunt trauma sustained after being struck by the attacker's vehicle. The thirteenth injury was undetermined.

Be warned this is extremely disturbing. The video is considered not safe for work.

Of course, the conservatives will say that this mentally disturbed individual who managed to commit an act of terrorism among innocent victims as a card carrying member of the Democratic Party.

The racist right blogs couldn't help themselves by saying this White terrorist is a "leftist", "Democrat" or "liberal". 

Can't let the political fire die down.

It seems like I've repeated this one too many times. The usual finger pointing from the agitators of the junk food media.

The left will say: "Here we go again, another mass shooting in America and the president and Congress will not move the needle on curbing gun violence. The NRA can't do nothing right. All they want is 'more guns' and we'll pay the price with blood! You see why cutting government is a bad thing! The sequester is hurting the country and Republicans are responsible for the tragedy!"

The right will say: "See what we told you! There's a need for more firearms in the workplace. Besides, these liberals seriously think a piece of paper or a law can stop a gunman. If more people were armed this man would have seen justice. Anyways, isn't this guy an Obama voter? After all this could have been a liberal, don't you know?"

One thing is clear about this political football it's going to be an agitator who peaks into who the person votes for.

Who cares what political affiliation he had?

Who cares what he's done before the shooting?

Leave all that for federal and state law enforcement. Because for all we know is that the man went on a rampage. He stabbed people. He started shooting at people. He took his own life.

We all hear that story about the shooter was being a "nice guy" and friendly! People who are rejected by women, jobs, society itself and are often look at as doormats are likely to snap. Being the "nice guy" is going to be considered a threat upon the country. Introverts and loners (basically the bullied) are likely to be the next mass shooter. It wouldn't matter on the race, the gender, the sexuality, the political, the religious or social status.

A bullet has no name. It doesn't care where it hits. It's a piece of metal fired from the barrel. It doesn't discriminate against a liberal or a conservative. It doesn't matter whether it's a Democrat or Republican. It's going to hit something.

If it hits the flesh, then the victim is injured.

There's no coming back from the dead. You can't complain about politics when you're dead!

What's done is done! Dead is dead.

Richard Martinez, the father of victim Christopher, the young man who was gunned down, was upset and not only pointed the finger at Rodger, but the lawmakers and NRA for allowing this to happen.

The Associated Press report that Martinez talked to his son just 45 minutes before he was shot and killed inside a deli. Martinez says his son's roommate tried to revive him, but he died at the scene."

We here at Journal de la Reyna send our condolences to those lost in this senseless tragedy.
