Since a public mass shooting apparently requires four victims, not including the shooter (according to the FBI's definition), he's not even an actual mass shooter.
Archived that for you.Someone on his Steam page posted this link to an unlisted video in which he speaks about censorship on YouTube etc (dated november 2017). His face isn't shown but I think this is one of the few vids I've seen in which he's speaking.
I have to call bullshit on this one.
If he only wanted to kill himself, why would he be equipped with multiple magazines?
Why kill an unarmed teenager in the bathroom and then murder another in the hallway, alerting the entire school?
After the whole sofa incident, he walked up and down the hallway shooting into classrooms, screaming "I know you're in there!"
As the icing on the cake, they also found his "master plan" on a thumb drive and the sheriff described him as "Determined to create as much carnage as he could."
If he simply wanted to end his life with an audience, he could have quietly walked into a classroom (especially between periods when everyone is moving and he could blend in easier), locked the door, possibly fire some shoots in the air to scare them, and then do the deed. But no, apparently two unarmed children spooked him enough that he had to slaughter them just for the crime of going to the bathroom and walking in the hall.
To actually act out Grand Theft Auto does not work that way in real life. That's just a video game designed with certain mechanics to let you easily get away with it. All these psycho's from the past few years, from Lanza to this punk brat, all likely thought the same thing when formulating their "plan." More seasoned people such as the Columbine Shooter and Las Vegas shooter knew better and got away with more.
