The NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit has confirmed the identity of the shooter who opened fire on YouTube’s campus in San Bruno Tuesday. Her name is Nasim Aghdam, and she lives in Southern California.

Aghdam has a robust presence on YouTube. In a video posted in January 2017, she says You Tube “discriminated and filtered” her content. In the video Aghdam says her channel used to get lots of views but that after being filtered by the company, it received fewer views. In a Facebook post from February 2017 Aghdam blasted YouTube saying, “There is not equal growth opportunity on You Tube.”

Nasim Aghdam was the shooter at YouTube. She is also a vegan.  :mental:

Unsurprisingly, the MSM and, apparently, San Bruno PD pooed the screwch when it came to her motive. They had it as a BF-GF thingy gone REEEEALLY bad. Apparently she was living in the San Diego area, 500-600 miles from San Bruno, and her family in the Riverside area (some 400 miles from SB). Her family claim to have reported her several days ago as missing and having a strong grudge against YT. She supposedly was found by Mountain View PD, sleeping in her car near Google HQ. I say "supposedly" because I think the source is her family and possibly unconfirmed )I'm not saying they're lying, just being cautious).

Her family name makes it pretty apparent that she wasn't Scots or Swede, but I sifted through several articles before finding that she and her family are from Iran (even that was brief; I'm guessing they came here in the early-mid 80s, fleeing the bloody Iran-Iraq war). Not sure whether she was of any religion other than whatever went with her veganism (veganism doesn't flow naturally from Islam or Christianity, not sure about Baha'i).

She went beyond veganism all the way to crazy PETA member.

She was of the Baha'i Faith. I didn't speculate earlier, but I had a feeling that veganism is a more natural fit with Baha'i than Islam or Christianity. Apparently she and her family came to the US in 1996, probably fleeing persecution in Iran.
