    Now look at it...
    Its a horrible day, a memory, a nightmare, a tragedy, a depressing day that left 17 *dead* , a day that lead suicide to 2019 from that massacre...
    We will remember you all, your beautiful smiles, your strength... and the last time that your parents ever saw you, we will remember
    I know i probably wasted your time, but i had to point this out.
    And for those who are in pain and sadness, wake up every day and feeling like it started all again, They will be always be in your heart!

    That’s called depression with schizophrenia. I know because i had a family member that was beautiful in and out but when that person would get depressed and hallucinate or start to hear things, she wanted to go and shoot people so that the cops could shoot back. It would make me extremely sad and I would pray all the time.

  • Jordan Swickley
    Jordan Swickley 3 months ago +24

    He is lying. Real audible hallucinations come from outside a person's head and are just the brain's misinterpretation of real events which can be caused by schizophrenia, sleep deprivation (build up of interfering toxins), and excess use of amphetamines (he was on a legal version for his "ADD") or deliriants (not hallucinogens which only mess with visual perception).

    When well over 90% of all american media is owned by a mere few corporations, and everything else on the shelf falls under a few more. When I noticed obvious psyops and disinformation in the news...That's when I stopped patronizing, and a large amount of skepticism took over. Remember what corporation means. My tv and radio have been silent, and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Stores and malls make me ill, actually just going into public. So I believe nothing they tell me. I avoid the hooks and lures with a tapdance. The entire system is slanted, debased, and poisonous. Of course we live in duress and mistrust...As a pure blood Goy, I was gonna mention the disproportionate representation of nepotistic Jews in so many influential places. Such as the Trump ZOG, banking and finance, music, movies, publishing, Joogle, Jou Tube, etc. etc, as being a relevant observation...but decided against it... Anyways, they endeavor to own your mind too. This kid is NOT the diabolical criminal, he is just another tool of dissemblance...

      MusicMoviesGames Well you can’t say his personal life was normal. The guy has depression, his mother died, and I guarantee that he was bullied at school. That’s why these things are scary, it looks like they’re completely normal people, but they might just be psychopaths.

      Guys you don't understand, voices in the head are from stress and from mental abuse and your not aware of what your doing because you want to release it so bad and that mental abuse can create a voice of what you think and will bug you to do it. Now I'm not saying he's a horrible person but he was hurt aswell in the past and I hope you realize that. And the comment was probally still when he had the voice because it will bug you and it can take a long time for it to overcome you.

      Electroshock therapy is not a test and is only an effective treatment for major depression. It also has huge downsides which is why it is a last resort.

His techniques were used to get him to say he likes guns and that a video on RUclip was him. He wasn't asking questions intended to get a factual confession. It was bias from the get go.

      Rebecca A. What is the source of this information? Respectfully, it is actually inaccurate to cite that this is the case 100% of the time. While I admit that I am unable to contemplate the operation of his mind... however, from perception he does not exhibit someone who possess psychosis.. I reached this conclusion by simply listening to what he said in this video
