‘I’ll Be a god’: Man Makes Sadistic Video Before Murderous Rampage in Santa Barbara

Elliot-RodgerSanta Barbara, Calif. — At least six people were killed and thirteen injured in a stabbing and shooting rampage near the University of Santa Barbara Friday night. The assailant was also found dead with a gunshot wound to the head, and a YouTube video recorded by the suspect is now being analyzed by the local police.

Elliot Rodger, 22, posted the sadistic video below less than 24 hours prior to the shootings, citing rejection from women as one of the primary reasons.

“You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me. But I will punish you all for it,” he stated, followed by dark, maniacal laughter. “It’s an injustice, a crime. Because I don’t know what you don’t see in me. I’m the perfect guy. And yet you throw yourselves at all these obnoxious men, instead of me, the supreme gentleman. I will punish you all for it.”

Rodger also expressed a hatred for the human race in general, expressing a desire to see mankind extinguished.

“I hate all of you. Humanity is a disgusting, wretched, depraved species,” he said. “If I had it in my power, I would stop at nothing to reduce every single one of you into mountains of skulls and rivers of blood.”

Rodger is the son of The Hunger Games Assistant Director Peter Rodger, a film series about teenage youth that participate in a death match, eliminating each other until there is only one teen left to be crowned the champion. It is unknown whether Rodger shot himself or was wounded by police Friday night as he engaged in a shootout with officers.

According to reports, Rodger stabbed three men to death in his apartment before going to a sorority house to kill female students. As the women would not open the door, he turned and shot three women outside, killing two. Rodger then embarked on a random shooting rampage near the university, creating approximately nine separate crime scenes. He fled as he was being pursued by police, exchanging gunshots, and eventually crashed his vehicle into a parked car.

Rodger was pronounced dead at the scene, succumbing to a gunshot wound to the head. Police are now analyzing the YouTube video that he had posted this week, which has now been removed from public viewing by the popular video sharing site.

“The sheriff’s office has obtained and is currently analyzing written and video evidence that suggests this was a premeditated mass murder,” said spokesperson Kelly Hoover.

“This is my last video; it all has to come to this,” he said in the footage. “Tomorrow is the day of retribution, the day in which I will have my revenge against humanity, against all of you.”

“I’ll be a god exacting my retribution on all those who deserve it,” Rodger declared. “Just for the crime of living a better life than me.”

    Patrick James Kelly is just repeating the liberal lies he has been fed, obviously cannot think for himself. I have one question for you, pal. If law abiding citizens are disarmed, who will be armed and free to take advantage of the situation? Well, I’ll answer for you, because you cannot make the logical connection. Actually it will be two groups. Obviously criminals, since they have no regard for the law, what’s one more law broken to them? The other is government. Totalitarian regimes have proven over and over throughout history that disarmed citizens are easy game. Just look at Nazi Germany and communist Russia and China. Without exception they disarmed the common man before they took control. I don’t hear you decrying the millions they butchered.

    No, we are far safer with guns than without, despite this horrible tragedy that one twisted sick mind produced. The Second Amendment was intended to keep us safe from a totalitarian government. From our government, which is heading in that very direction. If you think that our government, or any government for that matter, can be trusted, then you are not a student of history. You have the freedom to voice your opinions because of guns and their use in securing our rights.
