Lawyer: Family Warned Cops Before Calif. Rampage

by William M. Welch

Despite the Orwellian police state, totalitarian monitoring and cataloging of all citizens' communications, and in this case direct contact with said assailant, the police failed to prevent this crime. - ChrisISLA VISTA, Calif. A Hollywood director and his family say they warned police about disturbing videos weeks before a shooting rampage that they believe their son committed near a Santa Barbara university. Seven people died, including the attacker.

Alan Shifman, attorney for Peter Rodger, assistant director of The Hunger Games series, said the family was told their son is dead after killing six people late Friday night. The family had not yet seen his body.

Shifman said family members called authorities several weeks ago after being alarmed by YouTube videos "regarding suicide and the killing of people."

Police interviewed Elliot Rodger and found him to be a "perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human," Shifman said. Authorities did not find a history of guns, but did say the 22-year-old had trouble making friends, he added. Authorities had not yet confirmed the identity of the shooter.

6645 And the father of one of the victims blamed politicians and the NRA. I guess he must not know that California has strict gun laws, and those laws were passed by politicians. And what does the NRA have to do with it? Did they kill his son? Was Elliott Rodger a member of the NRA? It's sad that he lost his son, but his statements were completely asinine.

7147 @Chris: Not even fair. If the police had arrested him, you would have been up in arms because he hadn't actually committed a crime; that they were arresting him for simply exercising his First Amendment Rights.

Damned if they had arrested him, damned because they didn't.

The best solution would have been if all women were armed; and shot any mouth-breathing overbearing little jerk that accosted them. That way, THIS jerk would have got his years problem.

I'm not saying they should have arrested him, I don't know enough about what they knew to judge whether or not their actions were correct, what I am saying is so much liberty has been traded for the promise of "security" and yet with all the police state supposed "security" measures in place they didn't protect anything.

7147 I'm having trouble imagining how that would be done, given that he stabbed three roommates (e.g. in private residence) to death before proceeding to use his car (e.g. highly mobile) to conduct a random shooting spree (e.g. no identifiable victims) in which he killed three more and wounded/injured thirteen others.

Given the circumstances, I don't see how they could have done better without unjustified violations of his rights, intrusive surveillance, and/or groundless investigation.
