Scott Beierle, 40, ranted about the “collective treachery” of women on his YouTube page.


The man who police say strolled into a Tallahassee, Florida, yoga studio and opened fire on Friday evening was a self-recognized misanthrope who raved against ladies and regurgitated bigot convictions in recordings and melodies posted on the web.

Some at the studio endeavored to stop the shooter as he terminated, police say.

Beierle presented a few recordings on a YouTube direct in 2014 that painted himself as the casualty of “foul play” by numerous individuals of the “females” he has needed to “court.”

BuzzFeed News was first to provide details regarding the shooter’s internet-based life nearness Saturday.

“The individuals who take part in unfairness will, at last, be its casualties,” Beierle said in a video titled “The Rebirth of My Misogynism.”

It was vague Saturday evening whether YouTube had suspended the record. Beierle additionally had a SoundCloud account that is as yet dynamic. On it, he posted melodies with verses depicting savagery against ladies, with one tune, griping about “the young lady I can’t get in the sack,” posted only hours previously the shooting.

The shooter took his very own life at the yoga studio before police arrived. Police still can’t seem to formally reveal a rationale in Friday’s shooting.

In the “Misogynism” video, he talked about a lady who continued dropping and rescheduling dates, saying he “could have ripped her take off.”

Beierle, a military veteran, additionally talked irately about the possibility that ladies can squeeze charges for his being “forceful” in his quest for ladies, which he considered a run of the mill “male trademark.”

“Would I be able to squeeze charges for being equivocal?” he inquired.

Beierle likewise discussed another arrangement of ladies who turned down his welcome to a show, going about just as he were qualified for sentimental consideration.

“I’m endeavoring to carry on with my life here. You’re not helping,” he said of the ladies.

The Tallahassee occurrence seems, by all accounts, to be the second incel-related mass homicide in 2018, after a man killed 10 individuals in Toronto by driving a van into a pack in April.
