There is a great deal of concern in America today about mass shootings, and with good reason.
We are a nation who has all of the tools to rectify whatever issues come our way, but are politically handicapped in doing so. This Team A versus Team B mentality is very literally killing us as democrats refuse to recognize the true impetus of these tragedies simply because they don’t want to admit that their opponents might be right.
It’s akin to refusing to quit smoking just because your doctor has a bumper sticker that you don’t like on her or his car. In this example, it’s your own refusal to compromise that kills you – the cigarettes are just the weapon.
The same may be true for mental health and mass shootings, as evidenced by the dark and depraved thoughts of many of our nation’s mass shooters. The young man from Dayton, Ohio who killed 9 over the weekend is no exception.
Dayton gunman Connor Betts’ depraved appetite for murder, drugs and Satanism is laid bare in series of chilling journal entries obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com.
The warped loner, 24, declares himself a servant of ‘evil incarnate’ and rants about everything from schizophrenia to satanic rituals and massacres.
He even hints at the idea of ‘hunting’ a victim to kill at the University of Dayton – writing: ‘We take a b***h, a person, man, convince them to come with us then poof, gone lol down?’
The frightening pages were revealed by a former friend who paints a confounding picture of Betts as a frequent methamphetamine smoker who played violent video games – but was never a racist or interested in weapons.
It gets even more worrisome.
‘I need drugs for now and later. How can we get moolah for speed?’ he writes.
In further jumbled snippets, Betts adds: ‘Anti-social personality disorder. Don’t listen to romantic advice, sociopath.
‘Seek and destroy. Still haven’t eaten enough so…very ADHD, paranoid, schizophrenic, strong, bipolar.
‘I am Azrael and this is my human Connor. This human body has so many stupid limits lol. Why? Makes me look less than “average”.’
A gun was simply a tool for Betts, who appears in his writings to be willing and capable of evil regardless of the method. A knife or a car could easily have been Betts’ method of mayhem were firearms not an option, leaving us to wonder if this is an issue of the arrow or the archer.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
