This is the video made by the UCSB shooter, explaining why he chose to murder women in retaliation for being romantically rejected.
ETA: I am seeing some bloggers say we shouldn’t be sharing this video because it gives this guy attention. Firstly, he’s dead now, so it really doesn’t matter if we ignore him or not. Secondly, I think it’s VITALLY important that women are able to witness the type of attitude and thinking of someone who would commit such an atrocity. Watching this video could help individuals identify red flags in potentially violent men in the future. Watching this video can help us recognize the difference between an annoying, romantically-spurned dude and a man with a level of entitlement that creates a desire for vengeance. That is why I’m sharing this video. Because we need to know the attitude of men out there (and, like it’s been noted in articles about this case, this guy is NOT ALONE in his thinking. He belonged to several webforums where he expressed these views among men with the same beliefs and is now being lauded by them as a hero.) This is a video that needs to be seen, for our safety.
