A Perfectly Polite, Kind and Wonderful Human Being

You know...One of these things happens every year now!  A mass murder....You had the Batman Shooter, You had Sandy Hook and now you have this, the Santa Barbara Mass Killing , by a young man who was angry that he was a 22 year old virgin who hadn't kissed a girl yet...

Ohhhh the problems that some people have.....

The family of a man they believe went on a shooting rampage near a Santa Barbara, California, university called police several weeks ago after being alarmed by YouTube videos “regarding suicide and the killing of people,” a lawyer said Saturday.

Police interviewed Elliot Rodger and found him to be a “perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human,” family attorney Alan Shifman said. 

Shifman added that police did not find a history of guns, but did say Rodger “didn't have a lot of friends,” had trouble making friends and didn't have any girlfriends. 

Shifman is the attorney for Peter Rodger, who was one of the assistant directors on “The Hunger Games.” and the father of the shooter.

Police said a gunman driving a BMW near the university campus went on a rampage that left seven people dead, including himself. Authorities described the tragedy as “obviously the work of a mad man.” 

Seven people remain hospitalized with gunshot wounds or other injuries, including one who has undergone surgery, following the shooting spree Friday night in the beachside community of Isla Vista, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said  

The gunman got into two gun battles before crashing his black BMW into a parked car. Deputies found the lone suspect dead with a gunshot wound to the head, but it wasn't immediately clear whether he was killed by gunfire or if he committed suicide, Brown said. 

A semi-automatic handgun was recovered from the scene near the University of California, Santa Barbara. Investigators know the gunman's name, but Brown said he couldn't release it pending notification of relatives.
Describing the atrocity as “premeditated mass murder,” Brown said, authorities were analyzing a disturbing YouTube video posted that shows a young man describing plans to shoot women that appears to be connected to the attack.

Yes...We have one of these every year...Every year since the 1999 Columbine mass murders.....and we have the same conversations about gun laws and both sides of the political spectrum say the same things and then ...........silence.....Nothing happens!

There will be much discussion on CNN, MSNBC, FOX and all of the news outlets....Presidents and politicians will speak and try to blame each other 's policies for what happened...but one thing is for sure...Nothing will be done...and in a few weeks you all will be talking about Kanye and Kim or Beyonce and Jay or something of no consequence to you....Until the next mass murder occurs...

Give me a moment. If I hear one more excuse for Elliot Rogers I am going to scream. White people, he was CRAZY.....it's not the guns, it's not some disease like Aspergers or autism. Why is there always a reason for these crazy white boys that have such a sense of entitlement they will make the world pay for their beliefs. It's white priviledge on STEROIDS. If a black/brown boy put up a video talking about anihilation of white people every branch of the military would have been locking him up under a jail. The police come buy Rogers house and he was so polite they let it go. It's the polite ones that are always crazy as hell. Usually Gang bangers kill a kid in a cross fire. Who cries for them. The worst one doesn't just go out shooting randomly they shooting at each other. Nobody is making excuses for them like oh they come from broken homes with no father in their lives. Give me a damn break. No excuses for gang bangers. no sympathy for their victims. Crazy white boys always have a cause and cry me a river for their victims. The double standard is sickening. Hey Mark Cuban, you scared of white boys in BMW's now?

The police could have asked to search his apartment bit didn't. That was a fatal mistake and they didn't ask because of who he was!
