Washington Navy Yard shooting and video games



  • http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865586547/DC-massacre-Gun-usage-violent-video-games-cloud-shooters-past.html

    Aaron Alexis, the suspected gunman in the U.S. Navy Yard shooting episode that left 13 people dead, had a checkered past that included run-ins with gun charges, violent video games and alcoholism.

    “Mr. Alexis was a New York native who lived in Fort Worth, Texas, and worked in a Navy fleet logistics support squadron based there before he was discharged from the military after a 2010 arrest for firing a gun at his apartment,” Ana Campoy and Nathan Koppel reported for the Wall Street Journal. “The incident sent a bullet into a neighbor’s property a few days after an alleged confrontation with the neighbor over noise.”

    After speaking with the suspect’s best friend, Nutpisit Suthamtewakul, The Telegraph’s Nick Allen wrote, “The darker side to Alexis’s character saw him playing violent ‘zombie’ video games in his room, sometimes from 12:30 pm until 4:30 am. Mr Suthamtewakul said: ‘He could be in the game all day and all night. I think games might be what pushed him that way.’ “

    The Washington Post reported, “Alexis drank alcohol frequently and in large quantities, Suthamtewakul said: ‘He can start drinking at 9:30 in the morning. He drinks often and for fun, but it was never a problem.’ Asked what he will remember about his friend, Suthamtewakul said, ‘Him with a Heineken.’ ”

  • They missed out on the point that he was probably mentally disturbed.

    How “respectable” is Desert News? Never heard of it.

    They missed out on the point that he was probably mentally distubed.

    There are actually two articles about him.  This one was published two hours before the violent video games bit.  http://www.deseretnews.com/article/765637972/Gunman-that-killed-12-in-Navy-Yard-rampage-was-hearing-voices.html

    They seem to be based in Utah.  For people who aren’t familiar, it’s where the Mormons come from, and they run the entire place.  Very strange.

    He is mentally fucked.
