Russian Lawyer Dmitri Vinogradov Office Shooting Spree Kills 5

Video below ..... Thirty-year-old Russian lawyer Dmitry Vinogradov is seen passing through security turnstiles at the Moscow pharmaceutical firm he works for on Wednesday before he goes on a shooting spree, killing six of his colleagues. Local media say Vinogradov had been on a
five-day drinking binge after being jilted by a pharmacist at the firm, but she was not among those shot.

Before the killing spree took place, Vinogradov posted a manifesto on the Russian social network VKontakte, imitating Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik. In the manifesto, he describes his hatred of humanity and his desire to kill as many people as possible.

"I am sure that I have good reason to believe all of humanity is cancer living on this planet," the manifesto stated."Already in 2011 the world population reached seven billion, and this is despite the fact that current consumption rates already exhausted the Earth's resources."

It goes on to argue that there are not enough wars or diseases in the world, and that natural selection no longer functions effectively.

"I hate the human society, and I hate to be a part of it, I hate the futility of human life, I hate this very life, I see only one way to justify it: to destroy as many particles of human compost as
possible," the document reads.

The manifesto ends with a call to "understand that you are not wanted here, you are the genetic garbage that is here on Earth because of an error in the evolution. You are trash that needs to be destroyed."

Psychiatrist Mikhail Vinogradov commented on the published manifest and drew the comparison between Dmitry and Breivik.

"This man harbored ideas of hatred and anger to the world and he was planning his evil doing, such as where to do it," Dr. Vinogradov told Life News. "The shooting does not fit with his manifesto, which is written in a clear and concise language."

"Most likely, it is schizophrenia. [The] catalyst in his situation could be ridicule by peers, inability to share his ideas with others, or just the fact that he did not fit into the team," he said.

Dmitry Vinogradov's mother confirmed the psychiatrist's observations: "People at work mocked him somehow", she told Life News. "Before breaking up with [his girlfriend] he bought a trip for both of them to Edinburgh. But after the breakup he decided not to go by himself and then became heavily depressed."

According to Vinogradov's mother, he sought psychiatric help and was prescribed pills, which he did not take on Tuesday. She also said that for the last six months, he had practiced shooting at a
range outside of Moscow.

Vinogradov's online profile portrays him as a nature enthusiast and environmentalist. He had posted pictures of himself saving birds from areas affected by oil spills, and said that he dislikes consumerism and modern life, yet he admitted to being addicted to them.
