If you turned on the news recently, you have probably seen the story about the L.A. Fitness that some psycho shot up, killing 3 innocent women in Pittsburgh, PA. That psycho was a 48 year old man name George Sodini. Why did he do such a horrible and terrible thing? I’ll let him say it in his own words; the words he whined on his own blog:
“I guess some of us were simply meant to walk a lonely path. I have slept alone for over 20 years. Last time I slept all night with a girlfriend it was 1982. Proof I am a total malfunction. Girls and women don’t even give me a second look ANYWHERE. “
…and that’s it. That’s why he walked into a gym, turned the lights out, pulled guns out of his duffel bag, and shot 36 rounds in the place, killing 3 women. Because he hasn’t gotten laid in awhile. That’s it. That’s the grand motive behind taking innocent lives. If this were the case, then World War fucking 3 would be everyday. Join the club asshole! This is not coming from an emotionally distressed teenager who guns down his class mates or the kid who always got picked on, the guy who’s girlfriend broke up with him and that was the last straw (not that I condone these reasons, or any reason for murder), this is coming from a 48 year old man.
I’ve read his blog about his plans, what he was doing, and how lonely he was; how women never looked at him, his dad who never talked to him, his brother who bullied him…All of it sounded like he was trying to justify this like there was some important message he was trying to tell everyone other than that he was a loser and a coward and a guy who hated his life and did nothing to improve the quality of it. He had a job as an IT guy for a law office , he was lucky enough to survive layoffs going on in his job and that he liked his new boss. These of course were all distractions from his “exit plan.”
His blog can only be accessed by typing in his DOD (creepy). It’s almost laughable to read. Most people would find it disturbing, but I find it pathetic. He can’t spell worth a shit. In the blog he repeats himself saying how he hasn’t had a woman since 1984. Over and over again. The blog is titled Live or Die. I don’t think he really gave anyone a choice on that matter.
Maybe he wanted it to look like a cry for help? Who knows? Apparently he just worked out at this gym and didn’t talk to anyone. His neighbors tried to be civil with him and talk to him but he just ignored them, yet he complains about how he’s all alone. Bottom line is the guy never made an effort and instead took other people’s lives instead of helping himself. Maybe I can’t get my head wrapped around the fact that a guy who’s only a couple of years younger than my dad would carry out something like this for such a childish reason. Why go after people at a fitness club? Makes no sense…
This is not something he planned recently either. If you read the blog he planned this shoot out since NOVEMBER! To quote him again :
“January 6, 2009:
I can do this. Leaving work today, I felt like a zombie – just going thru the motions. Get on the bus, get the car, drive home…..My mind is screwed up anymore, I can’t concentrate at work or think at all.
This log is not detailed. It is only for confidence to do this. The future holds even less than what I have today.
It is 6:40pm, about hour and a half to go. God have mercy. I wish life could be better for all and the crazy world can somehow run smoother. I wish I had answers. Bye.
It is 8:45PM: I chickened out! Shit! I brought the loaded guns, everything. Hell!”
Doesn’t chickened out mean you’ve had some sort feeling of guilt?! Wouldn’t that tell you something? Maybe you’re about to do something horrible and should seek help? You haven’t had sex in awhile?! GET A HOOKER!!! Sure it’s not the most legal way of doing things, but fuck man, it’s better than senseless mass murder!
He even had a date:
May 18, 2009:
“I actually had a date today. It was with a woman I met on the bus in March. We got together at Two PPG Place for lunch. The last date for me was May 1, 2008. Women just don’t like me. There are 30 million desirable women in the US (my estimate) and I cannot find one. Not one of them finds me attractive. I am looking at The List I made from my May 4th idea. I forgot about that for several days. That tells me where I stand. These problems have gotten worse over a 30 year period. I need to expect nothing from me or other people.”
Way to give up! You complain and complain about how women don’t want to date you , you finally have a date and then what do you do? You gave up because it interfered with your revenge scheme on how you haven’t had a date in a long time. That’s a bit hypocritical don’t you think?
I also love what he puts on the bottom:
“**Copy this to usenet/newsgroups where my voice will speak forever!**”
Your voice won’t speak forever, dick head. You’re no martyr. You had no grand message. You’re not a revolutionary ( maybe in stupidity), Nor are you remotely any form of inspiration. People will forget you. Ultimately you will go down as the senseless murderer who did nothing in your life but complain about how life never threw you a bone (no pun intended), yet you never waited for one in the first place.
That’s what I don’t get about these mass shooting perpetrators. You hate your life, you’re constantly depressed about feeling inadequate. So what do you do? Kill the people who never caused the problem for you, let alone knew you had a problem to begin with. Does life suck? Sure it does! Guess what! You’re not the only one life takes a crap on! A lot of people go through hard times. The rewarding part is overcoming those hard times and having a laugh about it later. Otherwise what’s the point?
Nothing is permanent and there’s always a way around what’s bothering you. If you don’t believe me Mr. “Guns in a duffel bag,” KILL YOURSELF! Do mankind a favor. Thank you.
