Gunman Kills 6 in Isla Vista Shooting

22-year-old Elliot Rodger opened fire from a slow-moving car along Isla Vista near UCSB on Friday killing six people in a “premeditated mass murder.” Rodger died from a gunshot wound after his car crashed. Police are unsure whether it was self-inflicted or from the firefight with police. Seven others were treated at the hospital for gunshot wounds.

According to YouTube videos discovered after the fact, the shooting may have been Rodger’s plan for retribution for a lifetime of self-described rejection. In his last video titled none other than “Retribution,” Rodger describes his plan to slaughter everyone in the hottest sorority house and then gun down all the “douchebags” along Isla Vista. A little extreme considering most people just go to a PUA workshop where they pick up tips like wearing a feather boa everywhere. Oh, wait.

However, he kind of ditched that plan when he drove up to a group of people in his black tinted BMW and opened fire. Dude has no follow-through. Maybe that’s why he kept on getting rejected.

“I don’t recall hearing any screaming,” witness Robert Johnson told CNN, describing the moment the gunman opened fire on people outside a deli. “It was at that point where I turned and ran in the opposite direction. … There’s a lot of confusion. Even shortly after this whole ordeal had ended, I think a lot of people didn’t realize the magnitude of the situation.”

The violence began and ended within minutes, from 9:27 p.m. when shots were reported to around 10 minutes later when police discovered the body of the suspected gunman, CNN affiliate KEYT-TV said. Authorities said there were nine separate crime scenes.

“Sheriff’s deputies responded and found several victims suffering from gunshot wounds. As sheriff’s deputies were attending to the victims and performing first aid, they were also receiving suspect information. Only minutes later, there were additional reports of shots fired in several other areas of Isla Vista,” Hoover said.

Clearly this guy had some issues and no amount of pleading would have convinced him not to go through with his plan. That is to say, if he shot me, I would say to him with my last dying breath, “You jelly, bro?”

You can check out the videos he uploaded here. They’re pretty much all full of woe-is-me speeches like this one.

“So many beautiful blonde-haired girls walking around everywhere. In your revealing shorts, your cascading blonde hair, your pretty faces. I want one for a girlfriend.” Gosh, I don’t know why he didn’t have a girlfriend. He’s so charming and brimming with self-confidence.

Update: Elliot Rodger was the son of Peter Rodger, the AD on The Hunger Games. Peter said his son had Asperger’s, had trouble making friends and had been receiving professional help.

“….Asperger’s?!” Sounds like paranoia schizophrenia, but I’m not a doctor. However, one must ask the non-scientific question: “How did someone this crazy get his hands on a gun?” If I had had a severely mentally ill child, you can bet I would have been aware of all his comings and goings. I wouldn’t have let him spend hours in his room playing World of Warcraft (or any other game). I think these parents were just relieved that he kept himself “not their problem”. Yeah, I’m actually holding someone accountable!!! Gasp!!!!

Because nothing says “liberal douche” like a sexually-repressed racist gun nut lost in a fantasy world… Wait, that sounds like half the Tea Party. LOL.
