Apparently, the shooter had a grudge against women. Say what you will about my attitude towards them in my darkest hours, but at least I don't go on rampages like this guy did.

Seen his video? Seems like some kind of Bond villain in his own mind. Evil laugh and all. It's so over the top it appears kind of scripted or fake in some way.

Yup. Elliot Rodger - truly disturbing.

About two minutes in, and my assessment is already in: Elliot Rodger is/was a narcissistic psychopath. If he didn't go on a shooting spree, I bet he would have gone on to be a serial killer.

Ugh, don't be surprised if they start saying this guy is on the spectrum.

There's a big difference between autism spectrum disorders and psychopaths like this dirtbag.

Well, he seems to have been specifically motivated by a rage against women - all women. I'm not sure if this or his slow drive through the neighborhood engaging and then shooing his victims is the more disturbing.

will be very interested as this investigation progresses, to see who has influenced this kid to this point. The videos he watches, the music he listens to, because he seems to be trying very hard to emulate the speech patterns of someone else. Someone specific. I don't think his words are rehearsed but his delivery sure is. His sneer in the last video is actually scary because it is inconsistent. He was holding back some serious rage in that video. Totally different sound in that last video than any of the previous ones. Someone was crawling around all over the inside of this kids brain and I really want to know who it is. Or was.

Wonderful. I guess people are going to push for a ban on autistics. :roll:

I think he is a evil minded monster, to my mind if you can not get your "wicked way" (have sex) then killing off the people you are attracted to is a super stupid thing to do. It also shows me the level of depravity this excuse which was posing as a man reached.

In some ways I wish I could have been one of the cops who stopped this vile monster.

His Facebook page, nothing in his likes or interests reflect anything of his tone or attitude on his youtube channel. No FB friends, but I wonder if he just had an immediate unfriending suddenly, either as a result of this shooting or just prior to. Looks privileged even. Something is missing here. I don't think it is anything to do with ASD, but I wonder about DID. There are more than one him in that melon.

His personality seems to have been heavily infused with narcissism -- in particular, his Facebook Timeline indicates an obsession with his own face (primarily) and his car (a close second).

Brings to mind that old Queen tune "I'm in love with my car".

Definitely a different Cylon model than I am, is all I can say with certainty.

The way he spoke in his first set of YT videos is completely different than in the last one. I wonder who he was copying when he was not showing his face that he erased in the final video. Like a bad imitation of someone trying to imitate a wigger. Yo, yo gangsta inflection and tone when face not on cam. self absorbed narcissist in the last video.
