Young mass murderers
Recent increases in tragic mass murders perpetrated by young individuals have prompted questions about their rationale for doing so. Below is evidence that their motives have been overwhelmingly atheistic or liberal, or driven by hatred of God. Virtually all of these killers are the product of public schools and most were big video game players. Many of these murders fit the observation by the forensic psychiatrist Dr. Michael Welner about the Connecticut massacre: "This was a crime that was more than a mass shooting. He killed these people like an arcade game." Many were marijuana users also.
|2016||Ali David Sonboly||not homeschooled; homeschooling is illegal in Germany||9, mostly young||27 others injured||Obsessed with playing violent video games and reportedly used a fake Facebook account to lure young victims.||Many liberal media reports completely omit the connection with video games.|
|2016||Micah Xavier Johnson||public school||5 police officers||7 others injured||He was an active Facebook user who ranted against "whites" in a posting less than a week before his mass murders.||Downplays a possible psychological effect of the murderer's devotion to Facebook, which included participating in a group there having a pro-African American race-based ideology.|
||public school||49 at a night-club in Orlando, Florida||53||A Facebook user who had to be blocked by a woman to whom he sent many unsettling messages, Mateen was a Muslim who had reportedly celebrated the 9/11 attack in front of classmates at the time. He pledged allegiance to ISIS while committing his mass murder.||Downplay the terrorist motive and background of the killer.|
|2015||Christopher Harper-Mercer||public school (community college)||10||9||The murderer acted "like he was playing a video game," according to a victim. The murderer declared that he will be "welcomed in Hell and embraced by the devil." He was a Nazi enthusiast of British origin, self-described "not religious" who disliked "organized religion." The murderer was an anti-Christian and he shot victims in the head if they were Christian and shot individuals in the leg if they were non-Christian.||Liberals exploited the grief to push for gun control, and at least one family of a wounded victim declined Obama's invitation to meet: "On principle, I find that I am in disagreement with his policies on gun control, and therefore, we will not be attending the visit," said Stacy Bolan, whose daughter was shot and wounded during the rampage.|
|2015||Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez||public school||5 soldiers in Tennessee||2||A jihadist who used drugs. He was reportedly fired from a job at a nuclear plant because he failed a drug test. He was also "pulled over April 20 for driving erratically. Officers said he smelled of alcohol and marijuana, had slurred or mumbled speech and had a 'white powdery substance' under his nose and around his nostrils."||Liberal denial about the obvious motive, about failed immigration policy that allowed him into the United States, and about the drug use that is common to many of these horrific crimes.|
|2015||Dylann Storm Roof||public school dropout||9 as they participated in Bible study in a Charleston church||Racism; Spent much of his time playing video games. Also involved in drug use and Facebook.||Liberals ignore his drug use and video game playing habits.|
|2014||Elliot Rodger||a public college||7 young men and women killed, including himself||13||Racism; got hooked on violent video games at a young age, and by his own admission hid himself "away in the online World of Warcraft, a place where [he] felt comfortable and secure." He did not realize "the severity of how far [he] had fallen" due to the violent video games.||Not a word by liberals or Wikipedia® admitting the mass murderer was influenced by violent video games, even though the murderer himself admitted it.|
|2013||Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev||public school education (19-year-old Dzhokhar)||4 plus Tamerlan himself, who was apparently killed when Dzhokhar drove a car over him||more than 170 injured, many horrifically with limbs blown off||Dzhohkar was allegedly a frequent abuser of Marijuana. Tamerlan was reportedly a "very religious" Muslim, who had even given up smoking and drinking based on his religious views, but was reportedly estranged from his family owing to his extremist views.||Liberal denial that Dzhohkar was almost certainly on drugs immediately before, during and/or after the bombing.|
|2013||Nehemiah Griego||Reportedly not registered with the local school district.||5, including mom, dad, and little children in his family||None||Loved to play violent video games, and even enjoyed talking about them to the crime investigators. He initially planned to kill more people in a public place, but instead visited a church then turned himself in.||The liberal media initially and falsely implied he did not play video games.|
|2012||Adam Lanza||His educational history was complex and troubled. He attended public school until about 8th grade, when his behavior became so alarming that his mother, after a brief period in Catholic school, began a mixture of home-schooling and some work in the public school.||27—the murderer, his mother, 6 adult school staff, and 20 children||2||He was fascinated with guns, though his mother gave him instruction in their proper use, hoping this would teach him responsibility. In later years his "existence ... largely involved playing violent computer video games in a bedroom," and he "spent hours playing violent video games such as Call Of Duty in a windowless bunker"; he was "goth" and wore a mask; after the massacre, officers found evidence that he had been playing "graphically violent" video games recently; "Dynasty Warriors" had been one of his favorites in the past||The usual call for stricter gun control, but not a lot of calls for control of violent video games. Some commentators suggested that homeschooling was to blame, and that there should be testing for antisocial/dangerous behavior for homeschooled students as well as for public-school students. But he was obviously a very troubled person. Society simply does not have the resources to identify dangerous people, homeschooled or otherwise, and it isn't known whether such a program would be effective.|
|2012||Jacob Tyler Roberts is the suspect||public school and a Facebook user||2, including the murderer||1||Played video games (his rampage enacted a scene in Grand Theft Auto); he dressed in black for the murders as other young mass murderers have, and donned a hockey mask perhaps inspired by Hollywood horror films||A day later, authorities and the liberal media still have disclosed almost nothing about the murderer; instead, liberals almost immediately demanded more gun control|
|2012||James Holmes is the suspect||PhD student at University of Colorado||12||58||Like other young mass murderers, dressed in all-black for the killings and was obsessed with playing video games like "World of Warcraft" (see Breivik below); for the murderous rampage, he dyed his hair bright red presumably to imitate the Joker (Batman's nemesis).||ABC News falsely suggests tie to Tea Party. Liberals call for gun control.|
|2012||"T.J. Lane" of the Cleveland area||public school||3||2||Posted a chilling rant on Facebook about two months before his murderous rampage.||Insists he was a victim of bullying, which several students who knew him denied.|
|2011||Anders Behring Breivik||public school||68 shot dead at a youth camp of the Norwegian Labor party, another 8 in a bombing of government buildings||Many continued to be missing after the killing rampage.||According to the judgement rendered against him, he liked playing violent video games and saw himself as "ultra-nationalist" who fought against Muslim immigration and Marxist subversion. He spent considerable time editing Wikipedia.||A typical headline in the liberal media blames fundamentalist Christianity.|
|2011||Jared Lee Loughner||public high school||6||at least 17, including a Congresswoman||a nihilist; "Left wing, quite liberal ... a political radical" and he declared that The Communist Manifesto, Animal Farm and Mein Kampf are among his favorite books||It's Sarah Palin's fault because nearly one year earlier she had posted targets on 20 congressional districts for Republican wins, and this massacre (by a liberal) occurred in one of those districts.|
|2010||Amy Bishop||professor, and daughter of a professor||3, + many reporters believe brother in 1986||3, was also a suspect in attempted murder in 1993||"was a far-left political extremist who was 'obsessed' with President Obama to the point of being off-putting."||liberals liked her: she "was admired by her peers and loved by her students" and "was a super intelligent person."|
|2009||Tim Kretschmer||Germany public school||15 + himself||several others||Europe calls for more gun control; liberal media promotes falsehood: "We'll never know why they kill."|
|2008||Stephen Kazmierczak||Northern Illinois University||5 + himself||16||Fan of Nietzsche's "The Antichrist," obsessed with self-injury, was a "cutter" in public high school, wore all black to carry out his massacre, and was still a public school student at age 27||Feigned shock at the fact that the gunman didn't "fit" the typical mold of a killer.|
|2007||Robert Hawkins||Papillion-La Vista public high school||8 + himself||5||Targeted Christmas shoppers; wore black; "I can't take this meaningless existence anymore" Told a therapist that "he is not sure if there is a God or life after death and that when he dies, he'll probably go to hell." Told social workers he was Satanic and acknowledged that he often acted before thinking of the consequences.||Avoided suggesting gun control lest Democrats lose West Virginia and Wisconsin in 2008 presidential election|
|2007||Pekka-Eric Auvinen||Jokela High School public high school (Finland)||8 + himself||About 12||Atheist, Supremacist("I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit.")||Finland already had gun control|
||Westfield public high school (VA), then Virgina Tech public university||32 + himself||25||"Ismail Ax" suggested Muslim beliefs, felt "Jesus was crucifying me."||Poem comparing it to environmental harm|
|2007||Asa Coon||SuccessTech public school Academy (Cleveland)||Himself||4||Said he didn't believe in God and didn't respect God, killed after classmate disagreed; wore black||Under-publicized because of his anti-God statements|
|2006||Kimveer Gill||Rosemere High School (Québec)||1 + himself||20||"I hate God" and "I hate religious zealots"||Canada already has gun control|
|2002||Robert Steinhäuser||Erfurt public school (Germany)||16 + himself||Wore black entirely, literally from head to toe; stopped only when a teacher pulled off his black mask||German gun control already strict, demands for limitations on computer games|
|1999||Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold||Columbine public high school (CO)||13 + themselves||23||Atheistic, singled out a girl to kill her for believing in God.||Demand gun control, causing Al Gore to lose West Virginia, Tennessee and Arkansas in 2000 presidential election|
|1998||Mitchell Johnson and Andrew Golden||Westside Middle School||5||10||Mitchell Johnson, the older of the two, was obsessed with rap lyrics like "coming to school and killing all the kids."||Liberals blame the guns rather than the killer's obsession with rap music. Johnson is released at age 21 but is later arrested for new crimes.|
|1997||Michael Carneal||Heath public high school (KY)||3||5||Murdered girls as they prayed in a prayer group; shooting had tell-tale signs it was incited/trained by video games: Carneal never moved his feet during his shootings, and never fired far to the left or right, but instead fired only once at each target that appeared, just as a player of video games maximizes his game score by shooting only once at each victim, in order to hit as many targets as possible.||Under-publicized due to anti-Christian nature|
|1989||Marc Lépine, at the École Polytechnique de Montréal||Collège d'enseignement général et professionnel, (College of General and Vocational Education)||14 + himself||14||His religious views were unpublicized but he was raised in a home with an immigrant Muslim father who was allegedly highly critical of the feminist view of women's role in society; Marc's mother was an ex-nun; and his sister had allegedly committed suicide||Ignore the personal background of the killer and instead use the massacre to push for stricter gun control and more laws concerning violence against women, and establish in Canada a National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.|
