Apparently he had been to the mall the previous day and intended to murder an adult, but "that didn't work out".

An obsession with the location with escalating crimes clearly. Shopping malls often attract people like this. I worked in one for years. Numerous strange regulars, some would shoplift, one guy followed women around, one pulled out a mirror and put a "curse" on me. Tragic it was a violent person in this case. It takes a real disconnect from humanity to harm a child. Hate hearing things like this.

"Aranda told police he knew what he was planning to do was wrong. He explained he had visited the mall for years, trying to speak to women there, but they rejected him. Aranda said that made him lash out." - CNN


Another incident to be attributed to an incel. He had earlier thrown a drink at a woman who rejected him, swiped his arm across a table and knocked all the glasses off before that.

There was once a "knockout" game played by some african americans on unsuspecting white americans, wherein a random white victim would be selected by one or more young blacks and then knocked unconscious before the perps ran away. Now there is new version called "knockout a nazi" same process and in ways an excuse to beat up anyone white just because someone conveniently decides they are a nazi.

Like I said in an earlier post. He is not legally insane. He knows what he was doing was wrong. I hope there aren't idiots on the jury who buy an insanity plea. People like him need to be locked away forever. No one gets rehabilitated from trying to kill small children.

.... This is a violent lunatic who lost his mind and nearly killed a child. He wasn't playing some racial game.

How is that related to this story?

Anyway... I'm surprised this man is still alive.

The Mall of America receives over 110,000 visitors per day on average. Handing out mugshots is not going to do it. You have a very unrealistic and naive view of the challenge to security here.

I really don't think as a society we can sink any lower. I really don't.

Why is this a reflection of our society? This guy is 1 out of many many millions. I've never heard of anyone picking a random child to try to kill in such a way. It's this one guys choice. Maybe we could have done something to make sure this guy didn't have this as an option. But at this point, we need to make sure he never has the chance to do this again. And rehabilitation isn't an option. I don't want to see some psychologist sign off on that BS.
