thanks for your concern - probably should be in the current events forum

Also, apparently, a white guy.  

 

But it's NOT TERRORISM.  So don't worry...it's just a tragedy.

police showed an amazing amount of restraint, that guy made 2 or 3 very quick motions like he was drawing a gun (likely cell phone), looks to me (and this is 100% speculation on my part) like he wanted to do the suicide by cop.

They just showed the video and he was clearly trying to get the cops to shoot him. Too bad for him it didn't work so he can go to prison unless he can kill himself before that. I doubt he has the guts to do so.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Looks like he is a 25 year old frustrated with how his life wasn't turning out like he thought it should.

 

25 years old

- lives at home

- enlisted with the Canadian Armed Forces but quit 2 months in

- attending a community college

 

Bummed out that the ladies wouldn't worship him like he felt they should and it's all he could stands

There are so many ways to get the cops to kill you.  Maybe pick one that doesn't involve taking a dozen other people with you, fucknugget.
Human garbage.

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

I went to a fundraiser last night for an organization that assists victims of domestic violence.  I learned that in the U.S., 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men are domestic violence survivors.  I would not be surprised if incels were exposed to domestic violence at some point in their past.  If you are experiencing domestic violence, I urge you to reach out for assistance.  This link provides more statistics and information about domestic violence.
