          Inside The Mind Of 23-Year-Old Who Says He Fears His Own Thoughts of Mass Murder

          December 9, 2015

          Recent reports say there were more mass shootings in the US in 2015 than days in the year. Karen says she fears her 23-year-old son, Andrew, who she says has a history of mental illness, could be the next mass murderer and walk into a school or store and kill innocent people. Watch her story here.

          Andrew, who admits, “I have thoughts of killing random people. I don’t want to go to a school and shoot up kids or hurt myself, but I don’t know if I can stop myself,” reveals his inner thoughts on what he claims drives him to think about killing and why he fears he could potentially become a mass murderer.

          “I have dreams about mass killings,” he says. “I study everything that happens in mass killings, from Pearl Harbor, to the Holocaust, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, September 11. I have studied how to make pipe bombs in the past. I’ve actually gotten pretty good at it over the years.”

          Andrew says he sees similarities between himself and the people who committed the Columbine and Virginia Tech murders. “I do believe that those people were very misunderstood and very picked on, and I can relate very well to that,” he says. “The evil side of me wants to make everybody pay for the pain that I’ve been put through for the majority of my life.”
