It was obvious this was premeditated

So he poured 10 L then the 2 jerrycans must have exploded.

True murderer. I hope judgement will be at level.

Misleading headline. It makes it sound as though he was casing the studio in-person for hours. He may have done so online, but the article makes it seem as if he merely walked a long distance with gas cans on a pushcart.

Ex convict imprisoned for theft. I think about 18 months. Was living on welfare. Mental health problems.

Yes a premeditated mass murder and he may even die from his injuries. In a coma.

Can we please stop giving this guy any more attention? It's what he wants.

Huge unaddressed mental health issues in ‘safety country’ that are only going to get worse. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Agreed. Just stop using his name and refer to him as 'the suspect'. That's what most news outlets do here in the US now. Stop making them famous and encouraging copy cats. If someone needs to know his name, they can look it up.

Any info on the reasons behind it (other than mental problems)? Something must have triggered it - his favorite anime character got killed off?
