pBut how could Rodger—or any lonely psycho—react differently? During adolescence, hormones turn your body into a walking Viagra disclaimer, and your thoughts into a pornographic loop. They’re just so different—as Jeffery Eugenides wrote, they’re “women in disguise” who are impossible to fathom./p
pI hope things will change and we can find some way of ensuring that dangerous people can’t access guns. But it’s difficult because not until the very end did Elliot ever show his violent nature. It’s such a difficult thing to have this kid that you loved his whole life and then he does this horrible thing that just makes you so angry. Trying to reconcile those two feelings is a very hard thing to do. He portrayed his stepmother as some kind of cruel, horrible character out of a fairy tale but she is a lovely, kind, decent woman. In the past, at times, he showed some bitterness and even some veiled anger but that anger wasn’t remotely acted out in any way./p
pOn the video he posted to YouTube, Rodger sat in a BMW car his family had given him and complained about being a virgin at 22, saying he had never even kissed a girl. Before he turned the gun on himself, the 22-year-old posted a retribution video to YouTube and emailed a lengthy autobiographical document to almost two dozen people he knew. Police have not yet confirmed any motive for the attack in which he is accused of murdering 10 people but his post on Facebook has drawn new attention to a mass murderer whose crimes inspired a dubious following. He now runs a blog called Dr Nerdlove, where he tries to provide a counterpoint to what he calls the “toxic masculinity” of such communities./p

pI’m getting a strong Patrick Bateman vibe from him.” Since news of the shooting broke, Kawamoto’s comment has been “upvoted” (Reddit’s method of showing approval) more than three thousand times. Kawamoto told me over e-mail that when he first saw Rodger’s video he assumed that it was the work of an Internet troll who was trying to get an odd, dark laugh. But after looking through Rodger’s YouTube profile, Kawamoto saw other videos in which Rodger did nothing but drive around and listen to music. His psychopathic episode, the “day of retribution” as he called it, in which he killed six innocent people with plans to “slay” many more, was driven by a less elusive problem./p

pIn his manifesto, he said that he dropped out of all his classes in February 2012. In September 2012, Rodger visited a shooting range to train in firing handguns. In November 2012, he purchased his first handgun, a Glock 34 pistol, in Goleta after doing research a href=https://hookupgenius.com/https://hookupgenius.com//a on handguns, choosing it as an efficient and highly accurate weapon. In early 2013, Rodger bought two additional handguns, both SIG Sauer P226 pistols, writing that they were of a much higher quality than the Glock and a lot more efficient./p

p2) He was entitled and wasn’t willing to make the effort. For example, he talked to two girls in the streets once, they didn’t respond to him well so he threw coffee at them. He went to one party, it didn’t go well, so he tried to pick a fight with the women but men intervened and then he got injured./p
pFor the summer he’d planned on going home to the Bay Area to spend time with his family, as well as visiting Yellowstone National Park and celebrating his 21st birthday in July. Their deaths have shattered our lives, relatives of Cooper, Michaels-Martinez and Weiss wrote in a letter to state lawmakers in 2014. Veronika, Katie, and Christopher were smart and loving young adults and we miss them everyday. Since the shooting, the victims’ families have come together to fight for gun control. The gunman’s vehicle is examined at one of a series of drive-by shootings Friday in the Isla Vista section of Santa Barbara, Calif./p
pAnd perhaps the only clues to the reasons are in the gunman’s haunting dissertation of his life. Unlike other mass murderers —Dylann Roof,Anders Behring Breivik, or eventhe Unabomber— the suspect in the Torontovan attackthat killed ten and wounded 15 others earlier this week didn’t leave behind a manifesto. The 2014 Isla Vista killings were a series of killings by gunshot, stabbing and vehicle ramming on the evening of May 23 , 2014, in Isla Vista, California. The killings were carried out by 22-year-old Elliot Rodger./p
