Isla Vista Shooting

Attacks college students

Jul 2012

Rodger attacks “a group of popular college kids” playing kickball in an Isla Vista park. His weapon: a “super soaker” filled with orange juice. He later writes:

Rage boiled inside me as I watched those people who thought they were better than me enjoying their pleasurable little lives together. The rage was so intense that I couldn’t take it.

After attacking them, he will write, he is “giddy with ecstatic, hate-fueled excitement.”

I wished I could spray boiling oil at the foul beasts. They deserved to die horrible, painful deaths just for the crime of enjoying a better life than me.
