    (CNN) -- A gunman described as mentally disturbed and possibly bent on retribution sprayed bullets from a slow-moving car in a small Southern California college town, killing six people in a rampage called "premeditated mass murder," Santa Barbara County sheriff's deputies said Saturday.

    The gunman also died from a gunshot wound after his car crashed Friday night, police said. It was unclear if the fatal head wound was self-inflicted or the result of a firefight with police.

    Seven people also were being treated in a hospital for gunshot wounds or traumatic injuries, including at least one who was in surgery, said sheriff's office spokeswoman Kelly Hoover.

    "The sheriff's office has obtained and is currently analyzing written and video evidence that suggests this was a premeditated mass murder," Hoover said.

    Hoover apparently was referring to a YouTube video titled "Retribution" posted by a young man. In the nearly seven-minute video, the young man rants about women who ignored or rejected him over the past eight years and warns that he will "punish you all for it."

    "Tomorrow is the day of retribution, the day in which I will have my revenge," the man says on the video.

    Well considering that it was armed personnel that did stop this psychotic rampage...

    Yes I know they were LEOs, but they were the only ones who could be armed.

    Now that the derp is done, its a tragic event no doubt about it. We apparently have the "who, why, and where". We only have partial bits of information about the "what and how". Yes we know how he shot the people, but instead it's the how did he get a hold of the firearms. What was used. What if anything could have occurred to prevent this? Were there any signs that the shooter was more than just depressed or a malcontent? Apparently the shooter used a semi automatic hand gun and not a rifle of any sort. No word yet if the pistol was using a California mandated sub capacity magazine or if it was an already outlawed standard capacity magazine.

    Here's a transcript of the video:

    Hi, Elliot Rodger here.

    Well… this is my last video. It all has to come to this.

    Tomorrow is the day of retribution. The day in which I will have my revenge against humanity. Against all of you.

    For the last 8 years of my life, ever since I’ve hit puberty, I’ve been forced to endure an existence of loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires. All because girls have never been attracted to me.

    Girls gave their affection, and sex, and love, to other men but never to me.

    I’m 22 years old and I’m still a virgin. I’ve never even kissed a girl.

    I’ve been through college for two and a half years, more than that actually, and I’m still a virgin.

    It has been very torturous.

    College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex, and fun, and pleasure. But in those years I’ve had to rot in loneliness.

    It’s not fair. 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.

    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 gentlemen.

    I will punish all of you for it. (laughs)

    On the day of retribution I am going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB… and I will slaughter every single spoiled, stuck-up, blonde slut I see inside there.

    All those girls that I’ve desired so much, they would’ve all rejected me and looked down upon me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them while they throw themselves at these obnoxious brutes.

    I will take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you.

    You will finally see that I am in truth the superior one. The true alpha male. (laughs)

    Yes, after I’ve annihilated every single girl in the sorority house, I’ll take to the streets of Isla Vista, and slay every single person I see there.

    All those popular kids who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure while I’ve had to rot in loneliness for all these years, they’ve all looked down upon me every time I try to go out and join them. They’ve all treated me like a mouse.

    Well now, I will be a God compared to you. You will all be animals. You are animals, and I will slaughter you like animals. I will be a God, exacting my retribution, on all those who deserve it.

    And you do deserve it, just for the crime of living a better life than me.

    All you popular kids. You’ve never accepted me, and now you’ll all pay for it.

    And girls, all I’ve ever wanted was to love you, and to be loved by you. I’ve wanted a girlfriend, I’ve wanted sex, I’ve wanted love, affection, adoration, but you think I’m unworthy of it.

    That’s a crime that can never be forgiven.

    If I can’t have you, girls, I will destroy you. (laughs)

    You denied me a happy life, and in turn, I will deny all of you life. (laughs) It’s only fair.

    I hate all of you, humanity is a disgusting, wretched, depraved species. If I had it in my power, I would stop at nothing, to reduce every single one of you to mountains of skulls and rivers of blood, and rightfully so.

    You deserve to be annihilated. And I’ll give that to you.

    You never showed me any mercy, and so I will show you none. (laughs)

    You force me to suffer all my life, and now I’ll make you all suffer.

    I’ve waited a long time for this.

    I’ll give you exactly what you deserve.

    It's a bit scary how bog-standard MRA the guy is. There are a whole lot of people out there ready to be him when the straw that breaks the camel's back comes down.

    I'm guessing that's probably 9 minutes and 54 seconds longer than he would have needed.

    And this is another case of a wealthy kid, who should have had access to mental health treatment, but whatever he got, didn't work. His parents are claiming that they warned the authorities weeks ago they were worried he was going to do something like this.

    And I'm sure that until the family saw the videos online, they also thought this kid to be a "perfectly polite, kind, and wonderful human." Strip the kid of the signs of imminent violent outburst and he's sadly ordinary. Virulently misogynistic "nice guys" who wonder why they can't get sex are a dime a dozen, accepted by far too much of society as being perfectly polite, kind, and wonderful until they start acting like they really believe the things they say.

    Clearly the answer to gun violence is liberalized prostitution laws. College registration should include a sex therapy surcharge on the student activities fee, just as an example.

    Women rejected me for that long and I didn't do anything crazy.

    Unless you count collecting Star Trek stuff.

    Probably the first time a family was tuned into how nuts their kid is, unlike the Columbine shooter and Eric Harris' s mom would didn't have one inkling of her darling pet making a goddamn bomb in the house.

    Maybe the girls rejected him because they figured out before he did that he obviously wanted the cock. I didn't need to see more than 2 min of that video to know homie was gayer than a grown man watching my little pony in assless chaps.

    Another day, another mass shooting. :bored:

    Retards like Liet will spout inanities like "thanks NRA." :hurr:

    Others will place the blame on the lack of mental health services, without having any clue whatsoever how the mental health profession works or what it can realistically do to prevent disturbed people from going on rampages. These morons will say that the kid should have been locked up in an insane asylum, without bothering to take a moment to think through the ramifications of allowing authorities to lock people up in a de facto jail based on something some social worker who barely made it through grad school with C's thinks you might do just because you're depressed or anxious about something.

    Gun nuts will obsess, not on the sad social commentary this tragedy may or may not represent, but rather what kind of weapon was used in rampage (they're already breathing a sigh of relief that the kid used a handgun, and not an AR). The firearm industry will use it to whip up even more hysteria over an Obama-gun grabber apocalypse, and sales will spike again.

    Now that more details are out:

    All firearms were bought legally in the state of California.

    His murders were committed using a combination of knives, guns, and his precious BMW

    The family was concerned but he managed to fool LEOs as to his mental status.
