Man Who Kills 3 And Self In LA Fitness Blames Lack Of Sex In Online Blog

August 5, 2009

Pennsylvania (ChattahBox) – The man accused of walking into an LA Fitness Latin dance class and shooting off 56 rounds, killing 3 and injuring 9 before committing suicide ‘chickened out’ of an attempt in January.

We know this from his online blog, which has been published in full here. It opens with:

“Why do this?? To young girls? Just read below. I kept a running log that includes my thoughts and actions, after I saw this project was going to drag on.”

In his posts he begins talking about his unspecified ‘exit plan’ back in December of 2008. From his entries we learn more about him, his life, and his hatred for women.

George Sodini was 48, had not had a steady girlfriend since the mid 80’s, and have not had sex since 1990. This sets the tone for most of his blog posts, which blame women for his anger, and his family for his inability to connect with other people.

The ramblings are disturbing as they show a man who has lived a life in a relatively normal way from the outside, but was unable to cope as a rational human being.

His posts get more and more disturbing until back in January, when he talks about it being the day. Later in the post he talks about how he went into the gym with loaded guns in his bag but ‘chickened out’.

From there he continues on with talking about how much he desires a relationship, but simultaneously hates women for not giving him the time of day.

“I actually look good. I dress good, am clean-shaven, bathe, touch of cologne – yet 30 million women rejected me – over an 18 or 25-year period. That is how I see it. Thirty million is my rough guesstimate of how many desirable single women there are.

A man needs a woman for confidence. He gets a boost on the job, career, with other men, and everywhere else when he knows inside he has someone to spend the night with and who is also a friend. This type of life I see is a closed world with me specifically and totally excluded. Every other guy does this successfully to a degree.

Flying solo for many years is a destroyer. Yet many people say I am easy to get along with, etc. Looking back, I owe nothing to desirable females who ask for anything, except for basic courtesy – usually. Looking back over everything, what bothers me most is the inability to work towards whatever change I choose. “

In another post, he talks about his reasons being justified:

“I was reading several posts on different forums and it seems many teenage girls have sex frequently. One 16 year old does it usually three times a day with her boyfriend. So, err, after a month of that, this little — has had more sex than ME in my LIFE, and I am 48. One more reason. Thanks for nada, b—-! Bye.”

Among those that George Sodini allegedly shot, after walking into the aerobics class of all women and turning out the lights and opening fire, were his ex girlfriend, who is in stable condition, the pregnant instructor, who is also in stable condition, and Heidi Obermier, Elizabeth Gannon, and Jody Billingsley, members of the class who were all killed.

    Yeah, I don’t condone to mass killings obviously, I know what the guy is going through, having recently thrown out my lying selfish fiancee of 7 years, but killing people and trying to justify it. Still, he raised a valid point, it hurts and it is infuriating to see girls at that age cheaply throw away their virginity and their love like that where there are romantically and sexually starved men, like me, out there who are too nice and therefore, too easy to ignore and manipulate (unless you’re smart like me). So, rationally speaking, if these people feel life isn’t the answer, and death obviously isn’t, then what is?

    Stop settling for less and be with a REAL man
