Also, “shooting rampage”:
Newly released 911 tapes reveal what the Reno, Nev., hospital shooter apparently told trapped patients and employees as he terrorized a medical office, killing one doctor and wounding two other people before taking his own life last week.
His apparent reason for the rampage? A vasectomy he said wrecked his life.
One man hiding in a bathroom with 10 other people told a 911 operator that the gunman was “pissed off because he had a vasectomy here and it ruined his life. … He says, ‘As long as you’re a patient you can leave; otherwise, I’m going to shoot you.’ ”
The California man accused of fatally shooting a urology doctor and injuring two others at a Reno medical office has spent three years struggling with ailments resulting from a botched vasectomy, according to his messages on a Yahoo support group and a law enforcement investigation.
Reno police confirmed [Dec. 19] that 51-year-old Alan Oliver Frazier’s focus during the shooting was the doctors at Urology Nevada. . . .
Frazier told the online Vasectomy Pain group on Aug. 25, 2012 that his post-vasectomy pain, or PVP, “was like I got run over by a truck.” . . .
“Yes, yet another victim of an inhumane medical procedure from hell,” Frazier said in his first post on Aug. 11, 2012.
Of course: He’s a victim, which is why he had to shoot three people before committing suicide. And I’m not saying this is an argument against vasectomy, per se, because I’m sure severe complications like Frazier’s are rare, but on the other hand:
- Nobody’s getting anywhere near my scrotum with a knife;
- If you decide to undergo “an inhumane medical procedure from hell,” you’ve got to be prepared to deal with it.
Liberal mentality: 1. Do something with easily foreseeable negative consequences. 2. When consequences happen, claim helpless victimhood.
