Geraldo Rivera, on Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto:

“You know, Neil, it is interesting. This kid is troubled in a way that’s even deeper than the chip on his shoulder. In his creative-writing courses he wrote in ways that were filled with sadistic imagery and savage, violent images that the teacher, the professor, referred him to mandatory counseling. He’s someone who’s been stewing for an awful long time–he bought that gun five weeks ago. So this was not a spur-of-the-moment deal. This was a guy who had a beef with, an image of the world and an image of himself that he couldn’t cope with. He didn’t share it with anybody. And when his classes began and everyone in the class was asked to name, what’s your name, what’s your name, when the classes began, he’d refuse to give his name. When they asked on the written questionnaire, tell us a little bit about yourself, he signed his name, a question mark. So this is–and he’s also, we find out now, on medication for depression. So what you have here, Neil, is one of those perfect storms, where you have a schmuck who hates himself and doesn’t take it out first on himself but rather inflicts as much violence as he can before ultimately, you know, at least having the decency to take his own life. He should have started there with the suicide, put himself out of his misery, and spared the 32 innocent people for whom this community will grieve forever.”

Um, noted.
