This freak apparently WANTED the fame, WANTED the notoriety. He deserves to rot in hell for what he did.

Re: Gunman sent package to NBC News

yeah, what's also shocking is all the signs that were going on. He's one that slipped through the cracks because he could function somewhat.

NBC deserves to rot in Hell for giving this little shitbag a forum.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

If you thought what you saw was prejudice in the last coming days, you haven't seen nothing yet.
Because once this picture/video is shown throughout the internet and media, the Asian American community might not ever be the same.

The media has the right to show this picture/video to get a perspective of this killer but it's the people who see this picture and associate a negative image of the asian american community with it that really worry me.

All media is trying to find some kind of answer as to why this happened and what made this man different from others.
If this is something that might help then so be it.

And it really would show some of and
the prejudice in this country.

It's worrisome and hypocritical in that when
white men commit these horrid types of crimes,
their race is never made an issue.

Why is it that the media views caucasian people from
a racial standpoint as running the full spectrum, not
particularly catagorized but, in "minorities" these types
are somehow a represenation in some way shape or form?


Good and evil run the gamit for all races.
It's a human thing, not a race thing.

You put it perfectly.

Anyway, this is an idiot and an attention whore. I felt embrrassed for him when I was watching the video and I cut it half way. I wish he was caught alive.

It's a real shame, and a very tragic situation. This guy needed help, had he gotten it, i don't think this would have happened.

I'm interested in learning about his upbringing, childhood and so on... what went wrong?

They tried to help him, they put him in counsling, the teachers tried to get through to him but nothing. He wanted to be a loner, he wanted to feel bad about himself. It's really sad because a lot of people are like him, they want sympathy for being a loner, when they are the ones choosing to be that way.

I agree.

Inner pain turns to anger, anger turns to rage,
rage turns to hatered, & hatered can turn to
violence.

I feel pitty in watching that video.
