This is the time in which we live, a time where the FBI uploads video to YouTube sliced together from a number of security cameras that together show the DC Navy Yard shooter preparing to hunt down a number of his fellow human beings.

Reports the Denver Post:

Valerie Parlave, head of the FBI’s field office in Washington, said Wednesday during a news conference that investigators are continuing to explore the background and motivations of 34-year-old Aaron Alexis. However, she says Alexis had a well-documented history of mental health issues.

Parlave says Alexis held a delusional belief that he was being controlled by extremely low frequency waves, or ELF waves. Alexis had written “my ELF weapon” on a shotgun he used in the rampage.

The video’s only 30 seconds long, but quite chilling to watch.
