“I am a horrible son. I wish I had been aborted. I destroy everything I touch. I can’t eat. I can’t sleep. I didn’t deserve them. They were wonderful people. It’s not their fault or the fault of any person, organization, or television show. My head just doesn’t work right. God damn these VOICES inside my head. I want to die. I want to be gone. But I have to kill people. I don’t know why. I am so sorry! Why did God do this to me. I have never been happy. I wish I was happy. I wish I made my mother proud. I am nothing! I tried so hard to find happiness. But you know me I hate everything. I have no other choice. What have I become? I am so sorry.” - From a journal found in Kip Kinkel’s bedroom
Audio recordings of various school or university shooters. Note: Elliot Rodger isn’t necessarily a school/university shooter, as his attack was only on the campus, and three of his victims were stabbed to death, not shot. Still fits into the theme, in my opinion.
In chronological order: Kip Kinkel (1998) - Dylan Klebold (†1999) - Eric Harris (†1999) - Seung-hui Cho (†2007) - Pekka-Eric Auvinen (†2007) - TJ Lane (2012) - Adam Lanza (†2012) - Elliot Rodger (†2014) - Dylann Roof (2015)
May 20, 1998 - Kip Kinkel’s father was sitting at the kitchen counter drinking coffee. Kip grabbed the .22 rifle from his room, went downstairs and fired one shot to the back of his father’s head. A few hours later his mother comes home. He met his mom in the garage and shot her twice in the back of the head, three times in the face and one time through the heart. Kip dragged his father’s body into the bathroom and dragged his mother’s body across the garage floor and covered both bodies with a sheet. Leaving the song “Liebestod” from the soundtrack of Romeo + Juliet playing loudly on the stereo and set to continuous play.
