Self-Portrait of a Killer: Montreal Gunman Kimveer Gill aka Fatality666

September 15, 2006
Annie

On Wednesday, September 13, 2006, 25-year-old Kimveer Gill, of Fabreville, Quebec, decided that today would be the day he would introduce himself to the world he hated. Armed with what is believed to have been a handgun, an assault rifle, and a machine gun, Gill drove to Dawson College in downtown Montreal and opened fire. Fatality666, Gill's online alter ego, stole the life of 18-year-old Anastasia Desousa and shot and wounded twenty innocent strangers before turning his gun on himself.

He was a young Sikh man, who lived with his mother in Fabreville, Quebec. He was probably from a good, "quiet" family. He probably never quite fit in at school, had few — if any — friends, and was probably persecuted for being a square peg in a round society. The description sounds all too familiar doesn't it? And yet, no one recognized him. Who was Fatality666?

Kimveer Gill was an enthusiastic supporter and member of the online Goth community Vampirefreaks.com. It would seem that when he joined the community on November 14, 2005, he had finally found a world he fit into. A world in which he belonged, and felt validated. Gill often touted the site's growing membership in his journal as though the site's popularity reflected his own. Perhaps it was the acceptance and comeraderie he found there that led him to the ultimate affirmation that he and the online persona he'd created were one and the same. Kimveer Gill became Fatality666.

Below are excerpts and photos taken from Kimveer Gill's Vampirefreaks journal and profile page.

Profile:

His name is Kimveer. You will come to know him as Trench. He is male. He is 25 years of age. He lives in Quebec. He finds that it is an O.K place to live. He is not a people person. He has met a handfull of people in his life who are decent. But he finds the vast majority to be worthless, no good, kniving, betraying, lieing, deceptive, motherfuckers.

Work sucks..........School sucks..........Life sucks..........What else can I say

Metal and Goth kick ass

Life is like a video game, you gotta die sometime.

Fatality666's profile page on Vampirefreaks.com is strewn with personality quizzes taken by Gill. One has to wonder whether he was affirming his identity, justifying it, or searching for it. Perhaps all three. Whatever the motive, Kimveer painted a self-portrait for the world to see. Sadly, no one did until it was too late.

Take the quiz: How truly depressed are you?

WAIT THERE. We're coming to get you now we've called the guys in white coats to come and get you so dont commit a mass murder before they come or you'll find you'll be in there longer

Satanism generally focuses upon the spiritual advancement of the self, rather than upon submission to a deity or a set of moral codes. Do some research if you immediately think of the satanic cult stereotype. Your beliefs may also resemble those of earth-based religions such as paganism.

The Land of Darkness The Land of Darkness is your dreary home. Your life is bleak and sinister. You are prone to depression. You feel anger at the world and you feel like the victim. Everyone is out to get you. You have no problem showing your emotions, and you probably show them in a destructive way. You might have no objections to causing other people pain as you put yourself through pain. You probably cut or mutilate your body. However, deep down you are lost and crying out for help. You are a small weeping child with the hard exterior of a person who has been through extreme sorrow in their life.

Why didn't anyone see the warning signs? That's a question that has been asked on more occasions than we'd like to remember. Most will probably say they didn't take him seriously, chalking up his behavior to harmless youthful rebellion. Others, well, they never really noticed him. He was one of those weird kids, you know, anti-social. A bit of a freak. An outcast.

The fact is, children aren't driven to these acts of atrocity and revenge over the period of a year or two. What we've witnessed is the result of a lifetime of not being accepted for who they are, or aren't, of not being heard, of not being seen. They slip through the cracks, where no one notices them. The Goth movement didn't create a killer, Vampirefreaks.com didn't create a killer, and the game Super Columbine Massacre RPG (although I detest its existence) didn't create a killer. Society did.

Look out friends

The RCMP and CSIS in Canada and Local Law enforcement and F.B.I. in the States have been scouring this web site during the last 3 months. Looking to arrest you guys and girls for nothing.

Ever since that girl from Alberta killed her family, they've been going through the pros, and have arrested dozens of people because of what they wrote in their journals (like talking about killing someone), or the pics they got (like holding a gun) or whatever.

Just be careful about what you write. Select "Private Entry" for anything that might be perceived as suspicious. For now.

Mood:So cold. So empty

Am I suggesting that Kimveer Gil wasn't responsible for his crimes? No. He was a cold-blooded killer. What I am suggesting is that he was not a lone gunman. He carried with him the many accomplices he picked up along the way.

It's hard to imagine how he could look an innocent stranger in the eye and pull the trigger without any hesitation or remorse. I suppose he learned first hand how to not see their face.

Fatality of Mind and Soul

People once believed, that when someone dies, a crow carries their soul to the land of the dead. But sometimes, something so bad happens, that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest. Then sometimes, just sometimes the crow could bring that soul back to put the wrong things right. - The Crow, posted on Fatality666's Journal.

Worth a thought.
Apathy is almost generic to our race...'Indifference' the newest fad..intentionally or otherwise we are often oblivious to signs of distress in another. If only there were radars, antennas, something that could detect a silent cry for help..in time.

The so called "Female Empowerment" assholes in Canada have forgotten about justice and gender equality towards young boys. So, they are sitting on a vulcano. This incident is not just an exception.

What more can we expect from cultures who do not care when they see imbalances in statistics.

They need to take complete relook at sociological research.

Genderwise Suicide Statistics in Canada.(Full details)

Just see for age group of 15 to 19 years
----------------------------------------
(Rate per 100,000)

1981 1991 1996 1997
(total)
15-19 12.7 13.8 11.5 12.9
years

Males 21.2 23.0 18.5 19.9
Females 3.8 4.0 4.2 5.5

Now, they want Indians to emulate them and make the world bloody "flat".

When it backfires on them, they cry and mourn.

Why the hell they want to "Modernise" the whole world? Can not they mind their own business?

The best people I have seen in my whole life are the tribals in Jharkhan Area of India.

Mordernisation and education(western style) converts everyone into a selfish unnatural asshole. Still, we crave it and flaunt it.

Please note, Bangalore (in India) has got the highest teenage suicide rate. How many Indian bloggers have "done"(not talk) something to make a difference?

sumanth:

stop foaming from the mouth and take some deep breaths -- kimveer gill's problem appears to be the same as VonSiffen's -- girls -- women -- he did not get them - and when he did - he could not handle them

also

he had other issues that added to his dementia

am sure he would have made a fine von-Siffer had he lived;)

Temporal,

Thanks for the compliments and advice. I know you really got angry with a bit of free speech.

What to do? The "feminine side of me" is seriously working to be a libertarian. You know, its great fun when men practice bit of feminine way of talking.

I just followed your advice to take a deep breath and started practicing Vipassana on my chair.

The whole world is not disconnected as it seems to all of us. The entire earth is an unified living entity( Gaia ). So, whatever happens, happens consistent to the whole.

One can not separate one's self and get away from responsibility.

So, Kimveer did not get girls and women. And his mother was a single woman. God knows what she did to him.

In West, when fathers can be accused of "various things" they do to daughters, the same should be seriously considered for Kimveer's mom.

Was he a victim of serious domestic violence by him mom?

Women who abuse their sons create men who hate girls and women.

And male hating feminists have a much greater chance of abusing and stifling their sons.

------------------------------------------
So, reality is made up of circles, but we see straight lines.
------------------------------------------

I hope Indian Media will report this story just the way western media only showing the disgusting side of India.

sumanth:

kimveer gill obviously had serious issues! bipolor? schizo? adhd? advanced manic depressive? .....

whatever he was suffering from -- there is one safe conclusion -- that it was preety serious and that it was a unadressed...


as an bystander or concerned reader there are two possible reactions:

one: that of 'disgust' at his act

and two: sympathy with the victims

your agenda driven post was nothing but a shamelss exploitation of a sad issue

Temporal,

Thanks once again.

Do not you think it is better to be shameless than a "hypocrite media asshole" who screw the society in the name of transforming/modernising it.

You know, children have no shame. I guess I made a journey backwards.

Shame and induced guilt are two of the big reasons why most people get bipolar in the society.

Suicidal people have equal tendency to kill.

Sympathy for victims will not bring them to life. In fact, sympathy is the biggest obstacle to making any difference to any difficult situation. Give a blind sympathy, s/he will lead whole life feeding on it with no existence of his/her own.

Where do we as a society contribute to creation of individual circumstances?

I still remember many insensitive DC writers completely agreeing that "Collateral Damage" in social experiments are perfectly fine.

So, collateral damage is fine and naturally the victims will get sympathy.

Do not you think, high density bombardment of information (expecially visual) makes us all insensitive morons?

So, we do not care what happens to others until it happens to us. For us, everything is a like a video game.

In this story, could stringent laws have stopped Mr.Kimveer? If yes, how?

If no, then whats the method to stop creation of more Kimveers in future. Assholes in Media know Rocket Science. Is not it? Can not we just prevent creation of Kimveers in the society? If yes, how?

Children brought up by single women are statistically more likely to grow up violent. Usually the mothers play nurturing role where are fathers play a moral and risk taking role.

another reason is that uptill we have been granting automatic custody to women and ignoring the better parent in many cases which leads to these kind of bad upbringing .

Stephen & Braver in West did comprehensive study came to conclusion that even in split a shared parenting and custody is the better way since child has balance from both sides.

Shared custody is fast grwoing in USA and has sanction of the people . Massachusets voted 87% in its favour in 2004 , Ohio has similar approval ratings. The only opposition is really from the feminist groups and the government beaurocrats who feel that they loose their vice like control over decent fathers.

The biggest opposition to allowing father to play a role comes from feminists and beausrocrats whose jobs depend in making the fatner fight to even see his child .

A presumption of both parents being fit will go a long way in addressing this issue
