Another day has passed and a clearer picture is starting to emerge about what happened at Seattle Pacific University and maybe even a little bit of the why.
First off please allow me to extend my prayers and condolences to the friends and family of 19-year-old Paul Lee. Mr. Lee was the lone fatality in the shootings.
Getting back to the suspect, Aaron Ybarra, most reports are stating that Ybarra had severe mental issues and substance abuse issues. In 2010 he supposedly told police that he had a rage inside and wanted to kill himself and as many people as possible. In 2011 he went to the ER saying he was hearing the voice of Columbine coward Eric Harris urging him to commit violence. No word on if he wanted to have Dylan Klebold’s ghost babies. In 2012 he is reported to have said that he wanted SWAT to make him famous. So he is a mutant (Columbine fanboy) and this is more than likely a copycat shooting but the question is was he a mutant before or after he started having mental issues? Personally I think you have to have mental issues if you admire two cowards like that.
Speaking of the two cowards it seems that Ybarra may have had similar parenting…
He was twice evaluated by psychiatrists, but was found “not detainable” after his mother refused to have him admitted.
Again as a society we need to remove the stigma of getting help for mental health issues. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Personally i would rather have someone commit me than be a danger to others. It’s not a question about guns but of mental health. Where do we draw the line when someone’s mental health issues make them a danger to society against their right to freedom? Although I am curious where he got the gun from.
Ybarra is also said to be saying that he’s sorry about the shootings. That was said through his lawyer so take that for what it’s worth. As usual I bet he’s more sorry about being caught before he could take the coward’s way out. Speaking of which he’s on suicide watch. I pray that the he is not successful in taking his own life. His death would only make him a martyr to the Columbiners of the world.
