En memoriam by xoja En memoriam by xoja
On Wednesday, June 2, 2010, a "quiet" man, Derrick Bird, when on a gun rampage in several small locations across Cumbria, north-west England. Thirteen people, including him, were killed, the majority of them strangers, all of them innocent.

The reason for the rampage is under debate. It was originally thought he flipped over a will, but recent claims suggest his tax oweings were almost six times what he earned annually, and he decided to commit suicide.

Why didn't he just shoot himself, save the bloodshed? Because he's a selfish twat.

gun-rampages on random-unsuspecting-innocent are always the worst. I hate hearing them happeneing.
on another note, you say the guy who did it was Derrick Bird in your descrip., does he have anything to do with "david Bird" the first guy on the list?

There were. He was annoyed that David was getting all the inheritance from his father, or something. Apparently he also had huge debts. They're investigating.
