I'd just like to point how ignorant it was for TMZ to bring up the fact that this guy had no friends on Myspace. He may have never used his account. This is exactly what is wrong with society right now. They equate virtual "friends" with real ones. This guy obviously had friends as someone took his picture. I don't care if he had 1,000 "friends". He's still bat-s**t crazy.

STOP PUBLISHING FACES - THESE IDIOTS DO THIS TO GET FAMOUS.

They want their 15 minutes of fame and they are such losers they need to kill people to get on the news. As this becomes common place these idiots need to kill more and more people to retain the headlines. We need to issue a number or code to the offense and not publish their faces or names. Now would they still risk going to jail or getting the death penalty if they got NO news coverage?

Do NOT glorify these a-holes!!!!

How is it possible that every fricking Idiot can buy as much firepower he wants to so that he can kill as efficient as possible?

If he couldn't get his hands on a semi-automatic rifle, he would have killed much less people!

i NEVER understand why news media gives guys like this the satisfaction by showing they picture and repeating they name.,...makes them become infamous and gives them satisfaction.try not showing they pics/name so they know no one cares about them and just the victims. and there is nothing more to say about him then he was a worthless coward who should immediately be put to death since he was caught in act...forget mental issues or any tax payers dollars going to a trial! he wants the publicity and notoriety or he would have offed is damn self~ smh

Something tells me by the look on his face in the "younger" photo - he is a religious fanatic. He has that creepy weird-ass religious psycho look to him. This is soooo messed up. What a waste.
