    Default Seven dead in shooting near UC Santa Barbara

    Looks like some guy went on a shooting rampage last night, killing six, wounding several, and then possibly killing himself. It's not clear if he shot himself or he was shot by the police.

    Police are looking at this as a premeditated mass murder because of a video posted on youtube titled Retribution. They think it was posted by the shooter and the shooter claimed in the video that it was retribution day for all the women that ignored him or rejected him over the years. Wonderful.

    For those of you that are familiar with Santa Barbara, it is a small, beautiful little town along the coast of California.

    7 dead in California shooting rampage called 'premeditated mass murder'


    (CNN) -- A gunman described as mentally disturbed and possibly bent on retribution sprayed bullets from a slow-moving car in a small Southern California college town, killing six people in a rampage called "premeditated mass murder," Santa Barbara County sheriff's deputies said Saturday.
    The gunman also died from a gunshot wound after his car crashed Friday night, police said. It was unclear if the fatal head wound was self-inflicted or the result of a firefight with police.
    Seven people also were being treated in a hospital for gunshot wounds or traumatic injuries, including at least one who was in surgery, said sheriff's office spokeswoman Kelly Hoover.
    "The sheriff's office has obtained and is currently analyzing written and video evidence that suggests this was a premeditated mass murder," Hoover said.

    Hoover apparently was referring to a YouTube video titled "Retribution" posted by a young man. In the nearly seven-minute video, the young man rants about women who ignored or rejected him over the past eight years and warns that he will "punish you all for it."

    "Tomorrow is the day of retribution, the day in which I will have my revenge," the man says on the video.
    The shootings occurred in Isla Vista near the University of California, Santa Barbara, in a crowded area bustling with activity on Memorial Day weekend.

    "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.

    Police: Shooting a mass murder situation
    Some of the worst mass shootings in U.S.

    The shootings occurred in Isla Vista near the University of California, Santa Barbara, in a crowded area bustling with activity on Memorial Day weekend.
    "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.
    U.S. law enforcement officials said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and FBI were assisting local police in the investigation, including trying to trace the handgun used and where the possible suspect obtained it.
    Johnson told CNN he was standing on a corner when he heard what he thought were fireworks. Then a black BMW with tinted windows drove by and either slowed down or stopped outside a deli where as many as eight people were eating outside. Someone in the car opened fire.
    "It all happened very quickly, but I think this happened to be the largest group on the street," he said. "It think it was just targeted because it was the largest group in the area."
    People jumped up and ran, Johnson recalled.
    Worst U.S. mass shootings
    KEYT reporter John Palminteri told CNN that some witnesses reported hearing the gunman talk to some of his victims as he fired. Outside a 7-11 convenience store, he said, workers came out amid the gunfire to pull to safety a girl who had been shot in the leg. Another victim, a bicyclist, apparently sustained massive head injuries after being struck by the gunman's car.
    One woman told the station that a driver of a car flashed a gun at her and asked, "Hey, what's up?" before opening fire. She escaped unharmed.
    "I heard some pops, but I just assumed they were fireworks," said Daniel Slovinsky, who was eating at a restaurant. "Contrary to what you might expect, there wasn't a whole lot of chaos immediately. I didn't hear any screaming. A few people were running. ... It wasn't really until police started yelling at people to get inside that we realized something big went down. But even then people didn't know what."
    KEYT reported that "witnesses described seeing a black BMW speeding through the streets, spraying bullets at people and various targets." Six minutes after the first emergency call, the suspected gunman traded fire with sheriff's deputies, and the vehicle plowed into a parked vehicle, said Hoover, the sheriff's office spokeswoman.
    The suspected gunman was found dead from an apparent gunshot wound, she said, adding that it wasn't clear whether the death was self-inflicted or whether deputies killed the suspected gunman. A semiautomatic handgun was recovered, she said.
    It appears the suspect acted alone, Hoover said.
    Santa Barbara Sheriff Bill Brown called the suspect "severely mentally disturbed," according to KEYT.
    Authorities searching for a motive were looking into a video posted on social media that contains a man's tirade against women who supposedly rebuffed him, Brown told the station. Hoover said the suspect has been preliminarily identified but his name won't be released until "a positive identification is made."

    Default 7 Dead in Drive-by Shooting Rampage in Southern California

    'You deserve to be annihilated’: 'Mass murder' rampage that left 7 dead near UC Santa Barbara linked to chilling YouTube video, police say

    At least seven people are dead after a drive-by shooter opened fire in a student community next to UC Santa Barbara's campus. Police have not identified the gunman, but have linked the rampage to a creepy YouTube video of a 22-year-old man detailing his plans to ‘slay every single person’ he sees.

    Police say a YouTube video that shows a man discussing plans to ‘slaughter’ people on the street could be linked to the shooting rampage in Isla Vista, California. LOS ANGELES — A drive-by shooter went on a "mass murder" rampage near the University of California, Santa Barbara campus that left seven people dead, including the attacker, and seven others wounded, authorities said Saturday.
    Police have not identified the shooter, but Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said that a YouTube video titled "Elliot Rodger's Retribution" is linked to the shooting, ABC News reported.
    In the ominous video, a man, who identifies himself as 22-year-old Elliot Rodger, sits in a parked car and says he has felt lonely and rejected for eight years.
    He blames his unhappiness on women who have rejected him. He also says he wants to kill men “just for the crime of living a better life” than him.


    “If I can’t have you, girls, I will destroy you,” he says. “You deserve to be annihilated, and I will give that to you.”
    Roger is stoic as he details his plans to “slay every single person” he sees on the street.
    “I’ll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am in truth the superior one, the true alpha male,” he says.


    “I will be a god compared to you. You will all be animals. You are animals, and I will slaughter you like animals,” he continues. “I hate all of you. Humanity is a disgusting, wretched, depraved species.”
    Friday night's rampage broke out around 9:30 p.m. in a UC Santa Barbara student enclave reputed for parties.
    Brown said the shootings occurred at several sites, resulting in nine crime scenes.


    The attacks ended when the gunman exchanged gunfire with deputies in the beachside community of Isla Vista, Brown said.
    He crashed his black BMW into a parked car, and deputies found him 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, he said.
    A semiautomatic handgun was recovered from the scene near the school.

    Investigators know the gunman's name, but Brown said he couldn't release it pending notification of relatives.
    "We're analyzing both written and videotaped evidence that this atrocity was a premeditated mass murder," Brown said.
    A student told KEYT-TV he saw shots fired from a BMW, fatally striking one woman and critically injuring another woman.


    "I heard shots, scream, pain," Michael Vitak said. "All emotions. I hope she is going to be fine."
    A visibly shaken student told the station she was approached by the driver of a black BMW who flashed a handgun and asked "Hey, what's up?" The student, who didn't provide her full name, said she thought he was carrying an airsoft gun and kept walking. She said seconds later, she felt something buzz by her head and quickly realized they were bullets.
    The victims' identities were not immediately released. Brown said the injured were being treated for gunshot wounds and traumatic injuries, including at least one person who underwent surgery for life-threatening injuries.
    Isla Vista, a roughly half-square mile community next to UC Santa Barbara's campus and picturesque beachside cliffs, is home to 23,000 people. The area has a reputation for excessive partying. Last month, an annual spring bash spiraled into violence as young people clashed with police and tossed rocks and bottles. A university police officer and four deputies were injured and 130 people were arrested.

    Web's getting cleaned and erased but you can still see some of his crap in caches. Like this:

    I'm tired of seeing losers with hot chicks - Bodybuilding.com Forums

    They've taken down his video talking about why he plans to kill. Hint: this'll teach women to take him seriously

    But his other stuff is still there for now

    I think his whole life is a put on. He comes across as a bad actor delivering lines. He's trying to be human and not quite making it.

    People like this see themselves as being owed a hot babe. He was owed and women failed to deliver so women must be defective. It's not his fault. He reminds me of a younger George Sodini.

    I agree, his laugh does seem like a put on and he does seem like a bad actor delivering lines. What a creep.

    This is a guy who was driving a BMW and going to UCSB, it's not like he wasn't given some pretty nice opportunities in life. I guess, along with the car and education, he felt that the women were also something he was due. Sad.

    I feel terrible for the people killed and their families. They sent their kids off to get an education and in an area that may be famous for parties, but it fairly safe.

    There's people out there who agree with him.

    "Sex with attractive females should be considered a right and an entitlement for all heterosexual men, not something that should be "earned" or "worked for". That's the problem with your guys's mentality; It's one thing to see and understand the capitalistic nature of the current sexual dynamic in society - it's another to think that that's the way it SHOULD be and to perpetuate it.
    This person made a completely rational decision as far as I'm concerned. All men want to feel empowered, and if they can't get that feeling through sex, how the hell else do expect them to do so? "

    Rather than having sex with them, I vote for euthanasia.

    Fuck that entire mentality. There is an entire group of assholes that think pussy is a fucking birth right, and heaven for if a prostitute charge more than they can afford...because the body doesn't belong to the prostitute or person to give to others, in their mind it's already theirs for taking and fuck you if you disagree.

    Santa Barbara Gunman Identified as the Son of Hunger Games' Assistant Director

    By Michael Fleeman

    UPDATED 05/24/2014 at 02:45 PM EDT • Originally published 05/24/2014 at 12:45 PM EDT


    Elliot Rodger

    The man suspected of fatally shooting six people in a rampage near the University of California, Santa Barbara, before also dying of a gunshot wound was identified as Elliot Rodger, the son of an assistant director on The Hunger Games, according to a family attorney.

    Rodger's family was "devastated," lawyer Alan Schifman tells ABC News. "They want to send the deepest condolences to all the victims' families involved at this time."

    Rodger's parents had become concerned about him in recent weeks and had reported his disturbing YouTube videos to police, says Schifman, who represents Rodger's father, Peter Rodger, a second unit director on the 2012 blockbuster. Peter Rodger also wrote and directed Oh My God, a 2009 documentary in which celebrities including Hugh Jackman and Seal ponder the question, "What is God?"

    Officers interviewed Elliot Rodger and found him to be "polite and kind," Schifman tells ABC. It wasn't clear which agency sent officers; Schifman says a social worker also contacted police about Rodger last week.

    Although Rodger was identified as the shooter by the attorney, Santa Barbara officials had still not released the name of the suspect.

    Rodger's final video was posted to YouTube hours before the shooting, promising "retribution" against women, whom he blamed for his "loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desires." In the six-minute clip, he sits in his car and complains women had left him a frustrated 22-year-old virgin.

    "Girls gave their affection and sex and love to other men, but never to me," Rodger states.

    "It's an injustice … I'm the perfect guy, and yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men instead of me, the supreme gentleman."

    Yeah buddy, sex is a right. Not just with anybody, even, but sex with "attractive females."

    That dude needs to be put out of his misery. And the misery they obviously inflict on others.

    ^^ The truth. Any guy who thinks like that and is bold enough to put it out there, is a danger to women.


    I just realized who the killer reminds me of... Ryan Phillippe in Cruel Intentions. Same bad acting, too.
