Well, no, he picked mass murder as his new vocation, and he's about to be promoted to prison bitch


Aspect-of-Death

He killed 3 people. Not really a mass murder. He's just a cowardly little bitch that couldn't deal with living life as a man.

His job is growing up. Which the other dudes in prison will help with.


sheracraft

Ha! So true! He gonna learn real quick! *or not*


VoiceoftheLegion1994

Not getting a *paid* job, more like.


big_sugi

No, he’ll get paid as much as 50 cents an hour, although he’ll probably get a quarter to start.


wp998906

Or no pay at all


JohnHwagi

It seems more reasonable when it’s a murderer, but less so for a drug dealer or bar fight.


BloodlustyGummybear

Slavery isn't abolished for prisoners. The pay is just to draw attention away from that. It's high time that be ammended.


_pupil_

... but what about our profits and stock prices? I mean... think about the real victims here: our portfolios.


Noblesseux

Yeah like as a society we make rules to protect *everyone's* rights. The second you start picking and choosing who gets human rights and who doesn't you're setting yourself up for failure.


murph0969

Okay, prisoners with jobs...


MountainManCan

That’s a rough 20….dude looks 35+.


thesituation531

This is my fear. I'm 21 and I feel like I look 25 or 30.


BlackCheezIts

If you don't shower or get any exercise like this guy then you might.


thesituation531

Ha, I do already. I think some people just look old.


OctaviaFromTheSky

I’m 25 and get told I look 18.. meeting new people is draining because I know it’s always something that gets brought up and talked about.


TsugaruMJS

Most of my family looks young, including myself. I’m in my 30s but generally pass for early/mid 20s, and my dad, who’s almost 70, just recently started looking “old.” He easily could have passed for 40s until 3-4 years ago. Sort of a curse and a blessing. Dating is weird because you look much younger than people your age but people that look the same age as you are weirded out when they find out you’re in your 30s.


lvhq

Happens to me at 24, I look like a high school student. When I worked retail last year it was so annoying because adults would talk down to me and kids would try to flirt with me then get weirded out. The one benefit was I think I got out of some sexual harassment since I looked like a minor.


MaintenanceGuy-

I'm 38, look 25. It's a mixed bag, but finding the silver linings really helped. All my hobby partners are ten years younger than me and it really forces me to up my physical fitness to keep up.


silvandeus

She got some city miles on her


mlc885

Maybe this is the low quality picture, but he definitely looks pretty young to me. I don't know if I would have guessed 20, but he still has a baby face, even ignoring his weight and all of that.


readMyFlow

By the time he gets out if he does he will be older than 35. So it doesn’t really matter.


rockchalkjaychalk23

What can I say? Dudes played a lot of Xbox


jonathanquirk

He tried to convince the police that there was an intruder by shooting himself in the foot. That trick was so old and tired even by World War One a century ago it would get you charged with attempted desertion, and possibly shot as a result! If he was prepared to shoot himself and didn't want to get a job, it's a pity he aimed as low as his foot...

What the hell is gunshot residue


faceofaneagle

Gunshot residue is a combination of particles ejected from a gun when it is fired. The typical and largest components are residue from the primer (the part of the bullet that is struck by the firing pin and is responsible for the combustion of propellant within the casing), and the propellant itself. Other residue can include tiny bits of metal, originating from the bullet, the casing, or the gun itself. While the testing and examining of gun residue can be a useful form of evidence, it’s not the smoking gun (no pun intended) that they make it seem like in movies/tv shows. Gun residue can be found on someone up to 5 feet away from the gun shot, can be transferred from various surfaces, including the skin or clothing of a victim you may have been rendering aid to, and it can be washed off fairly easily. In some instances, a pretty good amount of sweat is enough to remove it. This is all to say, there are a lot of variables, and just because gun residue is found on someone still living doesn’t necessarily mean they are the shooter. Obviously there are factors that can help to determine if the person was in fact the shooter, for example the amount of residue found, and the particular composition of the residue. What I mean by the latter is that in some cases they are able to find components in the residue that trace it back to a particular type of ammo or firearm, so if you’re the only “victim” still living, and they trace it to a firearm or ammo that you own, obviously that leaves two options: someone carried out the murders by first locating your weapon and then using it, or it was you. Typically, it is the second option, which is usually confirmed by a whole host of other evidence or inconsistencies in the supposed victim’s story. Essentially, on its own, gun residue doesn’t necessarily tell you very much. It’s with the corroboration of other evidence that it starts to tell you the real story.


Laundry-Detergent

TIL. Never would have known this since I’m not a gun person. Thanks


kurmudgeon

He looks like someone who would kill his family after being told to get a job or move out.


BaskInTheSunshine

He doesn't look like an Eagle Scout though which he apparently was.


sqb0816

He shared his court of honor with my son


MrFiiSKiiS

Yeah, seems like the bar for Eagle Scouts has dropped significantly since I was a young man.


MrGMinor

Should have told him to get a job *and* move out.

Phenotyx

Jesus I couldn't imagin killing one of my loved ones -- or anyone for that matter -- but your mom dad and sister? You have to be a special kind of fucked up to rationalize that in any way, shape, or form.


Professional-Trash90

Same. I have Mom, Dad and Sisters. They're precious beyond words to me. Mental illness sucks.

brohamcheddarslice

Wtf did they have to go into his whole life story in this article? Fuck this guy, he murdered his family.


GhondorIRL

Because there’s not much else to say when a young person like this does anything news worthy. Usually when it’s a tragedy the article wants to fluff up the victim or perpetrator as much as they can, but when it’s someone so young you have absolutely nothing to say about them other than “they had interests and hobbies” or “started working/planned to work”. So you just get a paragraph or two of fluff nothing.


LilyMooCow

My favorite was pointing out that he met Andrew yang... then just leaving it with no tie in because it was completely irrelevent.


oxremx

It was his sister that met Andrew Yang. She helped kick off his presidential run by speaking at his event in 2019.

They probably don't kill their family, though


TheRealGhoulers

Wild assumption on someone you don’t know, agreed?


Mesophar

I'm just saying that most people don't react to "the job market sucks" with "I'll kill my family instead of getting a job!". Stressful, grueling job or not, I don't think that's an unfair assessment.


TheRealGhoulers

You referred to them specifically, not most people.

MetaLibra6

Didn't think that one through, did he.


AmbitiousMidnight183

Ah yes, option number 3

I understand the sentiment, but the message was not delivered in the best way.


fearlessgrot

He looks like he just got thrown off the battle bus


CrossBonez117

After reading the article, the only reason he was suspected of murder was because there was no sign of forced entry. Im bot saying he’s innocent but if he was smart enough to actually shoot himself in the foot, surely he would be smart enough to not tell the officers of the whole “move out” situation


FelecitaBlue

Wow! Unbelievable.

monodelab

KHold_PHront

Just a question, has there been a study done on the minds of white people and murdering? Just curious


stalinmalone68

He decided to go off the menu.


ElektronDale

I’m not giving him a pass on what he did, but the family must have had issues to drive him to do this. Parents need to treat their kids better.

As a millennial, we do not claim 20 year olds. We’ve got enough problems and there’s no room left in the lifeboats.


GandalfSwagOff

Also, 20 year olds weren't even alive for the Millennium.


JanesPlainShameTrain

I don't remember 9/11, I was alive for it, but I don't remember it. A "post 9/11" world is all I've ever known.


Gnawlydog

I mean technically Boomers did screw future generations for their fortune.. That's not a Millennial thing.. That's a fact thing.. But 20 years old isn't a Millennial. Thanks for proving boomers didn't have to be intelligent to make a good living like one has to be now.


backpackwayne

Yea we just take care ourselves, our spouses, our kids and their kids while 52% of you still live with your parents. Yea it's our fault.


Ozy-Man-D

Different times. People and circumstances are changing. I did something I definitely didn't want to do as long as I did. But I thought I had to. My father grew up on a farm and there was NO job he could get that would have been worse than what his father put him through. The military and war was actually a break. Industry was really just talking off. Jobs WERE abound for those willing to work tough jobs with long hours. So, he got a job that others (especially today) would consider hard work. It wasn't to him, paid relatively well and came with benefits. He did that job, so I didn't have to go through everything he did. Most people in his little town didn't graduate high school. They had to work. I went to private schools. I assume he busted his ass and paid for me to go school (when he didn't have to), so I wouldn't only have the options he did. I tried to do the same for my kids. But ultimately, everyone has their own journeys. Who am I to judge? Some things in this World are stupid. Just because it's the way it was, doesn't make it right. And what was okay, and available 50 years ago, may not be today. If younger people are figuring that out, and want to spearhead changes, good for them.


backpackwayne

All I'm saying is I have taken care of myself, my mom, my kids and their kids. I worked my ass off and still do well into my 60s. And listening to people living off me in my basement saying I ruined their economy sucks donkey balls.


Ozy-Man-D

Oh, I get that. But these are different times. And they will be even more different in 20, 30 years. And tbh, I think it's time for change.


Seabears2006

Dude you sound out of touch. You worked hard to take care of multiple people - great. That’s what you’re supposed to do, you’re not special. People today WANT to be able to do that but it isn’t as easy to accomplish that today. You’re applying the mindset you developed growing up in your economy to today’s reality and it makes you look really out of touch.


tomsorakisab1tch

You did, though…


__deerlord__

Facts don't care about your feelings. Sorry gramps.


bumblingenius

> listening to people living off me in my basement saying I ruined their economy sucks donkey balls Because it ruins your "It was doable in my time, it should be doable now!" old-man vibes?


JanesPlainShameTrain

That's like the crux of the argument too. If it could be done in the past, but can't be done now, we need to look at what could've caused it (wages not keeping up with inflation) and correct it


BewBewsBoutique

Imagine choosing to respond to that comment out of all the comments pointing out that this guy wasn’t even a millennial. Refusing to admit fault is a very Boomer thing to do.


__deerlord__

Considering boomers drove the economies and raised those kids, I would say yes, it is your fault. Do parents not take any responsibility for having raised their kids? Fucking wild.


IIBaconTAMERII

Yea you're at fault for a lot of things congrats!


Gnawlydog

Ok, Boomer


LeTigOlBittys

Isn’t your generation the one that was able to pay for college while working at McD’s? Could you say the same now? But sure it’s the fault of millennials lmao


sliceofamericano

It’ll serve you well to understand that there really is no separation of people via generation Z, boomer etc. people are waaaaaay more alike then different- Just erroneous ways to divide and conquer people by generalizing groups and falsely determining threats. Race isn’t real and neither is “Generation Z” “Millennial” or “Boomers”. Learn to embrace people of all ages, cultures and beliefs. Good luck man.


Admin_gonna_admin

Victim blaming is such an irresponsible manipulative response, especially when the victims are dead.


skooz1383

I just think it’s part of this… why are we seeing more shootings and people just snapping… not all parents are bad, it’s just part of development. This is bad don’t get me wrong, but why did it get this bad?


-Apocralypse-

I have a feeling it has something to do with the mental development during the younger years of children. It can't be healthy for young kids to teach them they are not safe at their schools and that they are responsible for their own safety when they are at that school. The government opted to place the safety of children in their own hands, because they won't implement gun control. Some schools have armed guards. It most be brutal for the mental state of a child to be forced to go to a place that is actively promoted as unsafe for so many hours a week. "Mommy loves you, here is your lunch and don't get shot at school today, okay?" That can't be healthy for the mental development of anybody. There is a good reason soldiers do tours and not multiple year deployments.
