A man who declared himself to be the “next Elliot Rodger” and promised that he would do it even better by killing only women has been arrested in Seattle. Thankfully, in addition to being a misogynist and a sociopath, he’s also an idiot and posted his plans online.
Keshav Bhide, 23, used YouTube and Google+ to praise Rodger, saying in one message that “everything Elliot did is perfectly justified.”…Earlier this month, anonymous threats were made to UW sororities referencing the shootings in California. Chalk outlines were also left outside some UW sororities. It is not clear if Bhide was connected to those incidents.
In his online messages, Bhide ranted against women saying he would make sure he would kill only them. Another commenter told him to “please just call an escort service,” and gave details for how he could avoid losing his life or going to jail.
Bhide responded that he would “execute the same thing” as Elliot Rodger and that he had “no option,” according to court documents. Police said he used the screen name “Foss Dark.”
Very glad they caught this guy before more people died. I have friends at UW.
