The media ignored four key words from the suicide note left by the Walmart employee who shot and killed coworkers before killing himself earlier this week.
Chesapeake police said they found the note on the phone of the 31-year-old shooter. They released it in a series of tweets on Friday.
The note started with the shooter apologizing to God for failing Him.
“This was not your fault but my own,” the letter said. “I failed to listen to the groans of the Holy Spirit, which made me a poor representation of You.”
The shooter wrote he was “harassed” by “idiots with low intelligence and a lack of wisdom.”
The shooter said they weren’t the only ones lacking wisdom, but he was just as guilty and failed his management team. He wrote coworkers laughed at him and compared him to Jeffrey Dahmer.
“I would have never killed anyone that entered my home,” he wrote. “The associates gave me evil twisted grins, mocked me and celebrated my downfall the last day. That’s why they suffer the same fate as me.”
He said he hopes people will learn from everyone’s mistakes and “truly love God” rather than the material possessions of the world.
“Sorry everyone but I did not plan this,” he wrote. “I promise things just fell in place like I was led by the Satan…my God, forgive me for what I’m going to do.”
CNN’s article about the note said the shooter talked about “God, the holy spirit and how the author felt his ‘associates’ were mocking him.”
CNN never mentioned in what context God was discussed. And it doesn’t include Satan as being the one to blame.
