A seemingly brilliant young man has gone mad. Shot up north of 70 people, killing at least 12. It's a crazy world.
What we do know: nothing much. Brian Ross alleged he was a Tea Partier. We know that has been debunked. Although why that whore keeps his job bemuses me. Well, it doesn't. He was the centurion charged with carrying out the libel.
We also know this guy was a particularly brainy neuroscience PhD candidate. The very tops in his classes.
What we do not know: why he was withdrawing from a seemingly promising PhD program. His political affiliations, if any. His motive, or motives.
Here's what I know. Because I can smell bullshit from a thousand yards. This guy ain't no Tea Partier. His hate likely stems from an inability to score a cush government job with his masters degree. Hence the necessity of the PhD program.
He's a slacker, philosphically. Although an apparently intelligent one. And what a shame. That his mind, his dreams, were derailed into a fucking bucketful of hate. Perhaps his parents let him down, perhaps he was too crazy to reach. Perhaps he was just a scorned lazy hipster who just got his first whiff of coffee.
But now people are dead. I wouldn't put any political motive on this, other than the meta "sucks to live in this economy." Sure it does. Ain't been sweet tea for me. But I'm not blasting holes in people, either. This onion will get peeled back. I may even be off the mark. BUT:
This whole thing smacks of a Scorpio Bus Ride to me. Nothing more. For what it's worth.
