The parents of David Wang and George Chen are speaking out in a new interview to demand change following Elliot Rodger’s killing spree on May 23 which took nine lives.
Before Elliot Rodger opened fire on the University of California, Santa Barbara campus on May 23, his killing spree started in his own apartment. Rodger stabbed his three roommates, George Chen, James Hong, and David Wang, and the parents of George and David have spoken out for the first time about this horrible tragedy in an attempt to affect change.
Peter Rodger and his ex-wife, Li Chin, have finally broken their silence. The heartbroken parents claim that knowing their son, Elliot, is responsible for so much tragedy ‘can only be described as hell on earth.’
After their son, Elliot Rodger, 22, went on a murderous rampage and killed 6 people and then himself, director Peter Rodger and his ex-wife, Li Chin, have made it very clear they will only acknowledge the loss of the victims — not the loss of their son.

Is it possible that Elliot Rodger was autistic? According to court documents from his parents divorce in 1999, his mother, Li Chin Rodger, claimed her son was a ‘high-functioning’ autistic child with special needs.
New information about Elliot Rodger, 22, has been revealed from his parents 1999 divorce. According to his mother, Li Chin Rodger, her son was a “high-functioning autistic” child who could be considered special needs.

Could Elliot have been autistic on top of the alleged mental illnesses he suffered from?
Richard Martinez, the father of UCSB shooting victim Christopher Michael-Martinez, 20, has lashed out in an emotional interview at the ‘gutless’ American government. The devastated father blames congress for doing ‘nothing’ to regulate gun control after the Newton, Conn. shooting that claimed over 20 lives.
Following the untimely death of his son, Richard Martinez is sending a powerful message about how these senseless tragedies could have been avoided if the United States congress would finally start taking gun control more seriously. Richard often references the devastating 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., stating that the government would rather sit around and get rich than take care of America’s innocent children.
Three days after Elliot murdered six people in a shooting/stabbing spree in Santa Barbara, his newly released 141-page manifesto revealed that he chillingly planned to murder his more popular little brother, 6, as well as his step-mother.
After videos Elliot Rodger made before killing six people in Isla Vista, Calif. were released on May 25, a 141-page manifesto has been posted online, revealing an even more shocking, disturbing look into the 22-year-old’s sick mind. In the chilling document, which he sent to friends and family before shooting up the UC Santa Barbara area, Elliot coldly writes about his plans to murder his family members, including his six-year-old step-brother, Jazz. Did he also plan to kill his mother and father, who were racing to find him when he began his killing spree?
Elliot Rodger’s parents frantically tried to find their son on May 23 while he was on a shooting spree — he had emailed them his 140-page manifesto just hours before. Unfortunately, they were too late.
At 9:17PM on May 23, Lichin Rodger, the mother of Elliot Rodger, received an email from her son with his manifesto, “My Twisted World.” This lead her to his extremely disturbing “Retribution” YouTube video. At that time, she called her estranged husband, Peter Rodger, then 911, and the two went searching for their son.
