A gunman went on a drive-by shooting rampage in a Santa Barbara student enclave and at least seven people were killed, including the attacker, authorities said. Investigators believe a 22-year-old named Elliot Rodger driving a black BMW acted alone in the shootings late Friday night near the University of California, Santa Barbara. Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown confirmed at a news conference early Saturday that that seven people were killed, including the gunman, and seven wounded. Rodger is thought to be the son of Peter Rodger, assistant director of the Hollywood film franchise The Hunger Games. Authorities are examining

We must immediately pass Legislation banning all Producer/Directors from having children. It´s the only way to be safe ..

Sadly, not the first time the son of a Hollywood "somebody" has gone on a rampage in the SBUC/IV community. The last one used his car to drive into a crowd.

Ugh. How long has this guy been showing his insanity? What are the options his family might have?

Also, it´s California. Where´d he get the gun? So many questions that won´t be answered over the wails of Moms Demand and Everytown.

Let me guess, his director father always told him how special he was and when he went into the real world and found out it wasn´t the least bit true, he cracked. Yeah libtards keep up the phoney ´every kid is special´ crap and we will have more of this. Liberalism is definitely a mental disease.

Guess he never figured out he couldn´t close the deal because he never really wanted to.

So our special little snowflake takes out seven innocent lives because it´s obvious they just don´t get him rather than consider the feedback society has been giving him. I can´t imagine what kind of narcissism incubator creates this kind of creature.

A tragedy, but on reading this my thoughts were exactly what poster #5 wrote. There are too many people growing up who have been denied any chance to experience adversity, rejection or serious problems - so they can´t deal with anything and always end up blaming someone else - this time with horribly tragic results.

Every weekend in Isla Vista is like "Sex Hunger Games." The random, rampant partying, binge drinking, drugs, and hookups are attractants for both gangs and disturbed "lonely boys" like this guy. There have already been multiple instances of mass violence there (one involving mass deaths by car rage).

The university not only doesn´t take it seriously, but their views on casual sex and general promiscuity certainly fuel the fire. The city and county officials also have a very permissive attitude about the whole scene, as in "like dude, we´re a beach college town..."

I don´t think this has anything to do with guns or gun control. I don´t think it has anything to do with parenting styles. It does have to do with our treatment of the mentally ill. We have had case after case of mentally ill young men heading for death by mass murder and we still obsess over guns and name calling of parents. We need a study of how to handle young schizophrenics and other seriously mentally ill youth. The current standard where you cannot get any help for kids unless they agree to it just isn´t working. I lost a student this week, probably suicide by cop, and PTSD from time the military, there should have been something for him - thank goodness he didn´t take anyone with him.

What the heck difference do his political beliefs make? He probably had none. He was mentally ill, insane or schizo.

#13 Mamafrog- you are so right. So many posts blaming his parents when we know nothing about them. Chances are very good he had been sick for years that his parents tried to get help but the law does not allow it to be forced on any adult. It´s a crime and so often ends up like this case. We have friends whose child is 24 and since he´s been 21 has received no treatment and has stopped all meds. They´ve been to court to get help but the judges´ hands are tied. It´s going to end up in a tragedy.

ACCRA--A U.S. citizen in Ghana is being tested for Ebola after he fell ill following a trip to two countries in the region battling the disease, a senior government official said on Monday. "He is an American and records showed that he had been to Guinea and Sierra Leone in the past few weeks," a senior health ministry official told Reuters. Test results are expected later on Monday.

It´s probably safe to go back in the water. Despite a recent string of shark sightings off Manhattan Beach, including one that ended with a swimmer being hospitalized after he was bitten near the pier Saturday morning, reports of shark attacks are uncommon in the United States, records show. According to data tracked by the Florida Museum of Natural History, there were 39 reported shark attacks in California from 2001 to 2013, or 3.25 per year, and five of them resulted in fatalities. East Coast swimmers are much more likely to wind up the victims of a shark attack, according to the data.

An alleged spy has been arrested in Germany accused of passing the US information from a committee looking into NSA activities. It has heightened diplomatic tensions between the two countries following allegations in the Edward Snowden leaks that the US electronic spy agency tapped Angela Merkel’s phone along with wider surveillance of German citizens. The German government has not denied reports by Der Spiegel and the Sueddeutsche Zeitung that the suspected spy was a double agent and worked for Germany´s foreign intelligence service, the BND.

LONDON — Eugenie Bouchard is a rising phenom, bound and determined to be a champ, but her fortnight at Wimbledon turned into a harsh wannabe’s tutorial Saturday when Czech star Petra Kvitova shaped the ladies singles championship into her own 55-minute clinic in speed dating with destiny. Kvitova, a fitter, faster, and more focused version of the woman who won here in 2011, pulverized Bouchard, 6-3, 6-0, in a thorough and powerful game of yellow-ball keepaway. For the brief time she was out there, the seemingly stunned Bouchard, a 20-year-old Montrealer, found herself unable to buy a second’s respite or

MARIETTA, Georgia — A Georgia man who police say intentionally killed his toddler son by leaving the boy inside a hot SUV was exchanging nude photos with women the day his son died and had looked at websites that advocated against having children, a detective testified Thursday. Cobb County Police Detective Phil Stoddard testified at a hearing that evidence showed Justin Ross Harris was practically leading a double life and should not be granted bond.

When Washington imposed sanctions in June 2012 on Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, he dismissed it as an empty gesture. Two years later, Shekau’s skepticism appears well founded: his Islamic militant group is now the biggest security threat to Africa´s top oil producer, is richer than ever, more violent and its abductions of women and children continue with impunity. As the United States, Nigeria and others struggle to track and choke off its funding, Reuters interviews with more than a dozen current and former U.S. officials who closely follow Boko Haram provide the most complete picture to date of how the group

BEIJING-Nearly 800,000 people voted in a nonbinding Hong Kong referendum aimed at agitating for greater democracy, organizers said early Monday, and the semi-autonomous Chinese city was bracing for hundreds of thousands of people to march through the streets Tuesday to continue pressing their cause. The 10-day vote in the former British territory -- conducted online, via mobile phones and in person -- asked residents to cast ballots for one of three mechanisms for directly electing the city’s chief executive. About 787,000 people -- more than 10% of the city’s population -- participated, organizers said. Mainland authorities have denounced the balloting as

One of the last Christian strongholds in Iraq came under attack this week, and its last remaining citizens are making a desperate plea to the United States for help. Until this week, Qaraqosh was a town where Christians from other parts of Iraq could find refuge. But late Wednesday night, ISIS rebels started shelling Qaraqosh, provoking a mass exodus on Thursday. According to various reports, anywhere from 10,000 to 50,000 citizens have fled. The Syrian Catholic Archbishop of Mosul, Yohanna Petros Mouche, has remained behind with around 1,000 of the town’s inhabitants who do not have cars or other means

Ahmed Abu Khatallah was flown by helicopter just before dawn from a Navy ship, according to a law enforcement official who requested anonymity to discuss the details. Amid heavy security, he was taken to a federal courthouse blocks from the U.S. Capitol, the official said.

President Obama has quietly promised Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren complete support if she runs for president — a stinging rebuke to his nemesis Hillary Clinton, sources tell me. Publicly, Obama has remained noncommittal on the 2016 race, but privately he worries that Clinton would undo and undermine many of his policies. There’s also a personal animosity, especially with Bill Clinton, that dates from their tough race six years ago. A former Harvard law professor and administration aide, Warren would energize the left wing of the Democrat Party just as Obama did against Clinton in 2008.

When the German botanist Philipp von Siebold sent a variety of plant specimens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in August 1850, he had no idea what he was unleashing on the world. Among the various floral and tuberous growths he dispatched was a plant which, 164 years later, is leaving a trail of mayhem all across the planet. It goes by the name of Japanese knotweed, or Fallopia japonica. It presents a pleasing appearance to the eye: heart-shaped leaves, bamboo stems and pretty, little white-flower tassels.

The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article. A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have caught an additional 240,000 Central American migrants since April, and are transporting many of them to their destinations throughout the United States. The 290,000 illegals — so far — are exploiting legal loopholes that allow them to get temporary permits to stay in the United States. Experts say that

Would you buy a bargain-priced airline ticket, but the catch was you had to stand for the entire flight? A new university study says the idea of standing-only sections on planes is no joke. An airline that removes seats can fit about 20% more passengers and, as a result, offer discounts of as much as 44% compared with airlines that offer big comfy seats, according to the study published in the International Journal of Engineering and Technology. Airlines in Ireland and China have looked into the concept, but none have yet put the idea into practice. Major carriers in the
