How long unitl we find out if he was an R or D? And which media source drove him to commit this terrible act? (Sarcastic and inappropriate I know. But you know it's coming).....

Our prayers to the victims and their family.

really horrible. this was in my area.

apparently he blogged his plans for a year beforehand, so we will find out what his motivation was. from what the media has said, it sounds like it was personal, not political.

First of all, I think we all are sickened by this and send out our sympathy to family and friends who are impacted by this man's sick act.

That being said (and sincerely meant) . . . I gotta tell ya that, as a Southerner, I immediately thought - oh Lord, please don't let this have occurred in a Southern state, cause I have had it w/ every shooting incident being politicized into some statement about wacko Southerners and their penchant for guns.

I am just waiting for someone in the media to turn this awful, horrific incident into a statement about Second Amendment rights, when the discussion should be about mentally unstable folks and why they commit homicide.

Hopefully it won't be politicized since the reason he did it was posted on his blog and it was because he "had no control" over his life for the past 30 years. He said if he had things may have been different. Sounds like a really cold bastard.

I hate how these guys always comment suicide, they are copping out of having to face the music for their awful actions. No one could be immune to seeing how this devastates families and friends.

It's okay to feel that (at least to me it is). I sometimes have a similar thought when I hear something horrible on the news because I already see the media spin on it.

Things like this almost make you paranoid. I had a coworker who was going through a messy divorce and my bf asked me to stop going out to lunch with her because her ex seemed like the violent type but in cases like these it's unavoidable.

This guy is the all American loser. He will be happy spending the rest of his existence with Satan, his master. Good job!
