The Oregon campus shooter, 26 year old Christopher Harper-Mercer, left one thing behind from his rampage: a rambling manifesto.
Within it he appears to claim that he is the only sane one in a population of crazy people. He also is reported to have written about numerous frustrations and hatreds.
Among hate for blacks and organized religion, he expressed numerous frustrations over having no girlfriend. This manifested itself in a hatred for women.
Harper-Mercer’s parents have admitted that he battled with mental illness. Please continue to pray for the families.
From Yahoo News:
ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — The gunman who killed nine people at an Oregon community college before taking his own life ranted in writings he left behind about not having a girlfriend and thinking everyone else was crazy, a law enforcement official said Monday.
The official also said the mother of 26-year-old gunman Christopher Harper-Mercer has told investigators he was struggling with some mental health issues. The official is familiar with the investigation but wasn’t authorized to speak publicly because it is ongoing.
Harper-Mercer complained in the writings about not having a girlfriend, and he seemed to feel like he was very rational while others around him were not, the official said.
