CHAPTER ONE: SYNOPSIS
Mass murderer Elliot Rodger’s therapist, Gavin James Linderman, telephoned Elliot Rodger’s mother, LiChin Rodger, (instead of calling 911) after he discovered Elliot Rodger’s murderous plan. Technically, under California law, he had 24 hours to report the threat, but his loyalty was to the Rodger’s family so he sat on the information LiChin failed to telephone 911, or the Santa Barbara sheriff’s office, after Linderman had called her, because she believed the event was going to be on Saturday, not on Friday night. Linderman assured her that Elliot would stick to his schedule as autistic people always do. She called her ex-husband. LiChin and Peter Rodger met and agreed they would handle the matter themselves so both failed to call the authorities. Instead they drove to Isle Vista in order to toss the miscreant in the bin on the down low. But what they didn’t factor in was that he had to carry out the event that night having sent out his communiqué. Innocent people lost their lives because they didn’t want the scandal that would have ensued had the police foiled his plot rather than them. They thought only of themselves and not of the potential victims of this woman hating psycho.
