Aztec High shooter had nazi tattoos

In case you’ve forgotten about the school shooting at Aztec High School in New Mexico, I’ll give you a brief rundown on the details. On December 7th 2017, 21-year-old former student William Atchison snuck into the school disguised as a student. Armed with a handgun and multiple clips, he shot and killed students Casey Jordan-Marquez and Francisco “Paco” Fernandez. Atchison took the coward’s way out by shooting himself before he could be apprehended by police. While no motive has been divulged, investigations have revealed that in his online life, Atchison posted racist and bigoted diatribes in various Steam communities.

Close to a month ago, The Office of the Medical Investigator released the results of Atchison’s autopsy. While the cause of death was obvious, it was a few other details that caught my attention. The first was there were no drugs in his system, prescription or otherwise. I’m sure the pharmaceutical deniers will say he probably should have been on meds since they can’t make up their minds if being on meds or being off meds causes school shootings. Again, neither does.

The other thing that caught my attention, as you can probably tell by the headline, is that Atchison had crudely drawn nazi tattoos among others. Atchison was said to have a swastika, the SS symbol, the phrase ‘Build a Wall’ tattooed on various parts of his body while he had the words ‘your home’ written on his groin. He also had the anagram AMOG tattooed on him which according to Urban Dictionary means ‘Alpha Male Other Guy ‘. If that’s not bad enough, the tattoos were upside down, so not only did he probably do them himself, but he did them so only he could read them.

I have no doubt that this assclown was a trilby wearing, Reddit posting, 4chan trolling member of the alt-right. While the alt-right didn’t invent school shootings, they sure seem to have adopted the school shooter ethos.

I know this is an old story, but I’ve been busy working behind the scenes on the website. You should probably be used to my long absences for whatever reason by now. I’m hoping to decrease such absences in 2018, but I’m not the story here.

In my previous post about the shooting at Aztec High in New Mexico that left students Casey Jordan-Marquez and Francisco “Paco” Fernandez dead, I said I wouldn’t be surprised if the shooter, 21-year-old William Atchison, wasn’t a trilby-wearing Gamergater. While not criminal profiling on the level of professionals, I was right.

A little less than a week after the shooting, The Daily Beast published an article detailing a lot of Atchison’s internet activity. While the actual wearing of a Trilby has not been confirmed, Atchison’s internet rantings are what you’d probably expect. He was active on such white supremacist sites like the Daily Stormer and the like. He was also an admin at known troll site Encyclopedia Dramatica.

As also was mentioned before, Atchison posted racist diatribes in a video game community, and at the time I wondered what game site it was. It turns out, it was the gaming platform Steam. For those of you who may not know, Steam is the platform on the internet to purchase video games for your PC. They also have sections for game reviews and game communities. Motherboard has a great article on Atchison’s Steam activity. Atchison seems to have a problem with the first person shooter Wolfenstein, a game franchise where the goal of the game has always been to kill Nazis.

“It was revolutionary for [its] time,” he wrote of the Nazi-killing first person shooter Wolfenstein 3D back in 2015. “The problem i have with it is the fact that you spend the entire game killing germans – killing white people.” The review then goes on to defend Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany’s systematic extermination of Jews.

It also turns out Atchison was a fan of Doom II. Doom was infamously known as the favorite game of the Columbine cowards of Harris and Klebold. In his Doom II activity, Atchison referred to Columbine as ‘LOLumbine’. Also not surprising, Atchison was a fan of the controversial game Hatred, which I originally discussed here.

Now while I haven’t heard video games being blamed for the Aztec High shooting, I have to reiterate that video games do not turn people into violent psychopaths. Video games did not turn Atchison into a racist loser who blamed his own shortcomings on people who were different from him.

“How am I supposed to function in this world? Wherever I go, I see degeneracy. Pointless materialism, hedonism, sexual decay, dirty n**gers who do nothing but slowly break down this society etc. it’s fucking everywhere. No way to escape it, 99% of people are part of it and whatever I do I am confronted with the death of the West. Go to the store and buy groceries in peace? Nope, here’s a group of LGBT liberal filth in line with you. And there’s a n**ger family with 10 kids over there. And a Finn too, but he’s overweight as fuck and he’s buying alcohol and shit junk food. Fucking fantastic.

I also think it goes without saying that Atchison was a columbiner as well, a person who is a fan of school shooters. So once again we have yet another copycat without an original thought in his head who followed his cowardly heroes into hell.

Also in my previous post I mentioned how the FBI paid Atchison a visit after he pposted a vague school shooting threat online. Unfortunately, the FBI didn’t have any real evidence of any plot so they couldn’t arrest him for anything. Sadly, I know too well what that’s all about as Dawson College gunman Kimveer Gill was once a troll on my website. Never once did Gill ever tip his hand on this website to his plans.

So what can we do about outliers like Atchison? Tragically, there is no answer. You can try to reach out to people like this but unfortunately sometimes they’re so ingrained in their ideologies that there is no way to help them. It doesn’t help that too many people like to settle into their comfort bubbles online where everyone else has the same opinions as them. The best we can do is to try to teach the following generations the best we can not to waste your life on hate and that we are all responsible for our own actions. The world doesn’t owe you anything and if you want to change your situation, man up and do it the right way, by working towards it. You can make the world better by making yourself better.

Additional details on the Aztec High School shooting

Additional details on the Aztec High School shooting

The victims in this past Thursday’s school shooting at Aztec High School in New Mexico have been identified as 17-year-old Casey Jordan-Marquez and Francisco “Paco” Fernandez. Ms. Jordan-Marquez was a cheerleader at the school while Mr. Fernandez was a football player. A fund for Ms. Jordan-Marquez has been set up at YouCaring as well as a GoFundMe. A GoFundMe has also been set up for Mr. Fernandez.

The gunman has been identified as 21-year-old William Atchison, a former student of the school. Police say Atchison took the coward’s way out via self-inflicted gunshot shortly after police breached the school. Atchison is said to have been planning this attack. He reportedly blended in with the students as school began before firing at random targets. My previous post on the matter stated that 15 people had been injured, but that has since been proven incorrect.

Police say that Atchison used a 9MM Glock pistol but was also in possession of multiple ammunition clips. The gun was purchased legally, take that as you will. Atchison also fits my personal profile of a school shooter, a selfish and entitled kid who couldn’t deal with his own failures in life. Police found the following message on a flash drive that was in Atchison’s possession when they found his body.

December 7, 2017

If things go according to plan, today would be when I die.

I wait until the school buses are detected, then head out on foot disguised as a student.

I go somewhere and gear up, then hold a class hostage and go apesh**, then blow my brains out.

Work suck, school sucks, life sucks.

I just want out of this sh**.

F*** this state, it really is bad. Think I’m insane? I’m actually more rational, peaceful and less loony than a majority of the citizenry of this entire region.

Oh, I forgot to throw in egomania there too.

Atchison had a previous run-in with the FBI too. He is said to have posted on a video game ‘If you’re going to conduct a mass shooting, does anyone know anything about cheap assault rifles?’ This prompted a March 2016 visit from the FBI. Atchison claimed he was just being a troll and the FBI had no cause to detain him. Personally, I’d love to know what video game it was. While I don’t believe video games cause someone to be violent, there are certain games that seem to attract cretins like this. If I had to further postulate, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out he was a trilby-wearing Gamergater who thought the world owed him everything because he was a white male.

Listen kids, the internet and online games aren’t the real world. You may be an ace at Counterstrike but that’s not going to pay the bills, and no, you’re not going to be a pro-gamer. If you think everything around you sucks, maybe you’re the problem. Now, two innocent people with promising futures are dead all because this selfish man-child couldn’t handle the real world.
