A lone gunman entered a crowded mall in Oregon this week, killing two people and wounding a 15-year old girl, before taking his own life. Police said that it seems to be a random rampage.
Investigators reported that the killer, Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, had no significant criminal history. His mother said that she had "no understanding or explanation" for what he did and that it was "so out of his character."
Roberts' Facebook friends said: "I have no words for why his happened," "He was a good guy -- never in a million yrs." [sic], "He was never a mean person."
Most experts are as baffled as his friends. However, Ray Comfort, the producer of a new movie called Genius, believes he knows why people kill: "His friends say that he was a nice guy and that he lost his job and broke up with his girlfriend. But those things have happened to millions and they haven't gone out and murdered people."
The best-selling author and TV co-host added, "Genius points to what every mass murderer has in common, something the 'experts' either don't see, or they avoid talking about it. But it's there. In the movie we asked 15 youths if they would murder for money and each of them had the same thing in common. Something tragic is happening in our country and most people don't know what it is. Those who want to know what it is should watch the movie."
More than 160,000 people have viewed the 34-minute movie since it was put on YouTube a week ago. Genius can be freely watched on GeniusTheMovie.com.
