Santa Barbara Killer's Stabbing Victims Were all Asian Males

Santa Barbara Killer's Stabbing Victims Were all Asian Males

Elliot Rodger, who went on a shooting spree at the University of California Santa Barbara targeting the school’s “hottest” women, began by stabbing three Asian students, two of whom were his roommates.

Rodger, who was half-Asian himself, repeatedly stabbed to death James Cheng-Yuan Hong, 20, George Chen, 19, and their friend who was visiting, Weihan Wang, 20, according to the Contra Costa Times. All three victims hailed from California’s Bay Area. At least one of the murdered men had been scheduled to move out of the apartment in just a few days. 

Disturbed and rejected, Rodgers ranted about race, including references to Asian men, in his 141-page manifesto. He expressed deep jealousy and found it shocking that non-white men, including a “full-blooded Asian,” had successfully won the affections of “white blonde” girls while he, being “half-white” himself, could not. 

The son of the assistant director of The Hunger Games, Rodger had apparently consulted therapists since the age of eight. He reportedly made a citizen’s arrest on Hong for petty theft, accusing the other man of stealing $22 worth of candles from him in January. Hong was booked and released but made the choice to continue living with Rodger, the Times notes.
