Police knew about Elliot Rodger’s YouTube videos in the weeks before he went on his killing spree, but did not watch them until after he killed six and injured over a dozen more, officials admitted on Thursday.
Hours before the shooting spree last Friday, Rodger posted a YouTube video in which he demonstrates his hatred of women and popular kids.
“You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me. But I will punish you all for it. It’s an injustice, a crime,” he said in the video, his speech punctuated by bursts of laughter. The clip has since been removed from YouTube.
