    Someone posted the suspects name, and a youtube video. If you go to YouTube and type in Retribution, it will show a pic of video and suspect but I can't get it to play. What a senseless tragedy.

    I live about an hour and a half from Santa Barbara, woke up to this awful news this morning. I watched part of the YouTube video uploaded by the suspect the day before the shooting, but had to stop after two minutes, because it repulsed me.

    Since LE has not yet confirmed the identity of the suspect, I don't think I can post his name or a link to the video yet...?

    Multiple witnesses reported seeing two men in the car, but LE is not confirming that. They are saying they believe the driver acted alone.

    Here's an article from SB's local news station, KEYT. They interviewed a couple of witnesses, including a girl who was shot at and escaped:
    http://www.keyt.com/news/shooting-in-isla-vista/26152454

    From the article:
    "One woman identified as Sierra told Sanchez she was approached by two men in a black BMW. The driver flashed a small black handgun and asked '"Hey, what's up?"'

    Sierra, who was visibly shaken, said she thought it was an airsoft gun and kept walking. She said seconds later, she felt something buzz by her head and quickly realized they were bullets. Three or four of them.

    Sierra said she ran into a nearby home filled with strangers and explained what happened. She looked down and saw her iPhone had been shattered.

    The video is okay to stand since he is named and the video is mentioned in this article.

    Very horrible crime in Santa Barbara.

    I saw the video and it reminds of Seung-Hui Cho's video. Both feel everyone else has it good, but them. They are consumed by rage and are ready to lash out. I would not be surprised if Elliot Rodger is an injustice collector as it fits the characteristic of a rampage killer like Cho, Adam Lanza, or Aaron Alexis.

    However, the way Rodger talk is different from Cho. Cho clearly shows anger in his voice, while Rodger is calmer, but you can hear anger in his voice.

    I going to guess that he was a weirdo and a jerk and that's what turned the girls off.

    I was finally able to watch the longer video from his car. I totally got a different "feeling" from the video. Although what he did to all these innocent victims is evil, I got the feeling in the video, he was forcing himself to come off as evil as possible. His laugh, every laugh he did, came off to me as totally forced, phony( trying to hard to sound evil). It's hard to explain. Hope no one takes offense to my opinion of the video:twocents:
