He sat there while they prayed, sang praises, and heard a sermon almost an hour before he stood up and started killing folks. If that isn't sheer evil, I don't know what is.
    Greetings, Vesper.

    His behavior doesn't make sense! Random killing of strangers seldom does, but inside a church, after listening to songs of praise and hearing a sermon?

    All I am asking is the questions so the subject can be discussed.

    I would say that when a person kills nine persons and makes statements like those attributed to the alleged killer - those are strong warning signs pointing to political grievances as at least part of the motivation.

    That was my first thought...same expression on his face too. I am speculating, but I would not be surprised if the story is the same. A long history of mental illness since grade school and off his meds as a adult.

    He also drove... He drove his mom's car to the school... I'm not trying to be a dick... I swear, a lot of these guys had their own vehicles.

    Of course you are.

    Minimal details, and you desperately flail around looking for a political label to paint a particular party.

    Never let a good tragedy go to waste to further your own political agenda.

    At least let the victims be buried first.

    It looks like the little bastard had obviously done some research first.

    Hopefully that will negate an insanity plea.

    Gee, maybe he broke the law and drove without a license.

    That depends on his lawyer. There are probably half a dozen or so of those blood suckers lined up to take on the insanity case (and get a lot of publicity in the bargain).
