This is chilling.

University of Washington student arrested for threats to 'kill women,' commit mass murder

BY JOSH KERNS  

Using the pseudonym "Foss Dark," prosecutors alleged the student wrote in one exchange on June 5, "I am the next elliot rodger, and gues what ill do the right thing this time, ill make sure ill only kill women [sic]."

In his online exchange, the UW student wrote that he had to kill women because "nothing can compromise for an ugly face and short stature, I will execute the same thing. I have no option [sic]."
With the assistance of FBI agents, University of Washington police began investigating the student after a June 9 post in which he identified himself as a Seattle resident and student on the campus after commenters told him to take responsibility for the crimes he planned to commit.

"I live in seattle and go to the UW, that's all I'll give you. I'll make sure I kill only women, and many more than what Elliot accomplished [sic]," he wrote.

According to documents, the FBI was able to link the name "Dark Foss" to an individual living in Seattle. University Security Services tracked a computer address attached to one of the posts back to the student.

The report made no mention of any weapons they might have found. But I shudder to think there's about someone wanting to emulate Elliot Rodger by a targeting women in a mass murder of their own.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
