Eight Dead in Jokela Sturmgeist89 Shootings

A shooting rampage in Finland leaves eight dead. The shooter considered himself a "natural selector.":

The rampage, which began at 11.43am local time (2043 AEDT Wednesday) inside a classroom at the secondary school of some 450 pupils, came after Auvinen posted a video entitled "Jokela High School Massacre - 11/7/2007" on the video-sharing website YouTube.

The video, posted sometime in the past two weeks, zooms in on the school with heavy metal music blaring in the background and shows a young man against a red background pointing a gun at the camera.

Within hours of the shooting, the video had been downloaded more than 200,000 times.

In his profile on YouTube, Auvinen, calling himself Sturmgeist89, says: "I am prepared to fight and die for my cause.

"I, as a natural selector, will eliminate all who I see unfit, disgraces of human race and failures of natural selection."

"You might ask yourselves, why did I do this and what do I want? Well, most of you are too arrogant and closed-minded to understand," he added.
