Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department officials named Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, of San Jose; George Chen, 19, of San Jose; and Weihan Wang, 20, of Fremont, who were stabbed multiple times at his Isla Vista apartment.
Apparently the mistaken use of “jive” for jibe has become so widespread that it’s on the road to becoming acceptable. At least from a British viewpoint.

What is the cure? Love, community, humanity. All is not lost: I just watched a happy baby riding along in a bike seat wave at people on the sidewalk.
Let's reorganize society.
Instead, you decided to be an asshole about Southern California, in response to a tragedy about which you know none of the details. Make you feel good, did it?

Maybe some men are finding their family way of life unsustainable, toxic and unsatisfying, and to economize (gasp!) from upscale delusions is too shocking, too degrading for them to contemplate. Better to go out with a bang, but four, because more is better.
So it's cool. it's just the way The Stranger handles this kind of thing.
And again...it breaks the memoplex (of liberal news feeds).
Here is this guy, Rodger, who is supposed to be a misogynist loser, but...well, I hate to sound stereotypical...but seriously, his victims so far are not beauty queens and studs, but Chinese computer geeks and math majors.
Meanwhile, he is, by his stat sheet, a winner -- rich, articulate, well spoken, connected with the Hollywood community. If this were one of the sequels to the movie Halloween, Elliot Rodger would play one of the two guys who go to the remote beach house with the two girls...and Jason would be one of these engineers...not the other way around?!
Are you seriously telling me that these Chinese programmers were getting laid while he was frothing at the mouth? And the girl he covered was a future quant?
Something doesn't jive!!
Side note: They haven't released the time of these initial slayings.
What makes me tearful about this was reading that the nextdoor neighbor heard loud sobs at 4am from a young girl at the residence where the murders took place. The sobbing woke her up. She didn't go over to see what the problem was.
Either the bodies were discovered, or the police arrived at 9 am, five hours after the girl sobbed. Was she one of the murder victims?
See, they're cracking. They can't make it fit.
Also, a "Shot-in-the-Ass-O-Meter" as well as a "Shot-in-the-Junk-O-Meter" are necessary to track Chicago crime. What. the. actual. Fuck.
Also, there is a very high probability that none of those people were shot with evil black firearms (AR/AK), so once again, no one gives a shit.

goddammit i'm sick of that.
oh, and whatever point you were making is dumb.
It is indisputable fact that violent crime and gun crime has gone down by 50% since the peak in 1993. It also appears that mass shootings aren't increasing either, just the media's sensationalist coverage of them. It looks like the peak of mass killings was actually in 1929.
Roughly .2% of all gun homicides are mass shootings and .023% are mass public shootings, but this isn't the most common form of mass killing. Arson is the most common for of mass killing but they aren't as sensationalized by the media. Why do you think that is?
Furthermore, 2/3rds of all mass killings are familicides where the male head of the household kills his family and then himself. 60% of those involve mental illness and the majority are via arson.
I'm still reading two recent published studies and will know more next week.

Mental health care isn't some sort of magic fucking bullet. Even patients who want to get better are looking at months, years, or a lifetime of continued treatment, and there are plenty of people who aren't effectively treated despite the best efforts of mental health professionals. Did you know Marilyn Monroe was in treatment for depression for years before she finally killed herself?
Men in their twenties like to take out as many people as they can, right? What's the ratio of complete strangers getting shot to family members getting shot? The 20-something men in the US prefer to take out non-family members in their firearm-assisted homicides, right?

Lakewood Police Killings
... and that's just off the top of my head.
@8: You deserve to simply be ignored, but they guys he killed were his roommates and a friend. He wanted to get them out of the way so he could embark on his killing spree. It's all pretty well documented.
@17: another version of joe the plumber's bullshit, just with more words.
But it's West Seattle that sucks, obviously.
Wow. You got me there I must admit. Because Joe the Plumber researched peer reviewed papers published in respected criminology journals, I decided to do the same.
To think that I wasted all that time when I could have simply gotten all my information from MSNBC... just like you.
