I cannot imagine the horror Peter Rodgers and his ex-wife went through last Friday night. The killer’s mother found his video and his 141 page manifesto online, called her ex-husband and they jumped in the car and raced to Santa Barbara. They heard on the radio about the rampage going on in Isla Vista. I cannot imagine. I’m sure they knew the moment they heard. The shock that went through their bodies. They had that kid in therapy every day of his life since he was 8 years old and it didn’t stop the carnage. They called the police on April 30th and the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s office sent six cops out there, but never looked at the youtube videos. I don’t know if that would have given the probable cause to search his place or not, but the parents did all they could. They knew he was dangerous. They tried. A lot more than most people would. They aren’t the only family out there going through this kind of hell with a mentally ill child.
First off, let me invoke the Unibomer rule here. Rule: If you have a manifesto you get to use the insanity defense. Period. Addendum: If it goes on for 141 pages detailing every time you burped or farted over the last 22 years, it’s rubber stamped insanity defense.
There is a ton of chatter out there about how it’s somebody’s fault because our society is misogynist. OK, fair enough. It’s Rupert Murdock’s fault. Happy? He’s the sorry sonofabitch that has been advancing all of this propaganda in this country for the last almost 20 years. Blame Reagan for repealing the Fairness Doctrine. Blame Rush Limbaugh. These propagandameisters are brainwashing America. And misogyny is part of their agenda. Blame the vast Right-Wing Conspiracy because it is real.
And if you’re really bored, blame this idiot. Her doctorate was apparently mailed to her by a cereal manufacturer in the Caribbean.
Another Fox shill.
So let’s just play some Rammstein. Nothing misogynist about rock and roll.
