So... I think most of the Americans are about to wake up, so I figured I'd start the thread for this.
Tragically a gunman has run riot, killing 7 in California:
A gunman has killed six people in drive-by shootings in the Californian city of Santa Barbara, US police say.
The shootings took place on Friday night in the Isla Vista neighbourhood, next to the University of California-Santa Barbara, where two-thirds of the residents are students.
Seven people were also injured. The suspected gunman is among the dead.
University officials and the police issued alerts calling on people in the area to stay indoors.
The interesting thing about this is that in the article they mention the potential shooter's name: Elliot Rodger.
It turns out that he put up a video on YouTube the day before, explaining that he was planning the shooting and the reasons he's doing it. Essentially he explains how he's always felt rejected by women and how he's a virgin at 22.
(It's very distressing to watch so I'm not going to post it.)
This all sounds like something out of a CSI episode, but it's actually real. What the hell is wrong with you, America?
I've just watched a few more of his videos. The guy is a fucking psycho.
