"She Could Target YouTube," Shooter's Family Warned Police

Suspected YouTube shooter Nasim Aghdam was found by police sleeping in her car in Mountain View, California late Monday night after her family filed a missing person's report, according to the Press-Enterprise.

Her father Ismail Aghdam told police that his daughter might've been heading for YouTube's headquarters because she "hated" the company and blamed it for censoring her by demonitizing her five YouTube channels, depriving her of income.


But after a brief investigation, the Mountain View police let Aghdam go, telling her family she was all right. This after Aghdam made the six-hour plus journey to the Bay Area from her home in San Diego.

In an interview Tuesday night with the Bay Area News Group, Ismail Aghdam said his 38-year-old daughter told her family a couple of weeks ago that YouTube had been censoring her videos and stopped paying her for her content. “She was angry,” he said in an interview from his Riverside County home.

However, it isn't clear whether the Mountain View police who found Agdham sleeping in her car were aware of her father's warnings about her heading to YouTube headquarters - possibly to seek revenge.

A police spokeswoman confirmed that officers had found a woman of the same name asleep in a vehicle early Tuesday morning in a parking lot.

"Our officers made contact with the woman after the license plate of her vehicle matched that of a missing person out of Southern California," said Mountain View Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.

"The woman confirmed her identity to us and answered subsequent questions. At the conclusion of our discussion, her family was notified that she had been located."

Ismail Aghdam said his daughter was a vegan activist and animal lover. As a youngster, she would not even kill ants that invaded the family home, instead using paper to remove them to the back yard, he said. State records show she had once established a charity called Peace Thunder Inc., to "educate people about animal cruelty, environmental pollution" and other causes.

Aghdam's father said her family was unaware she owned a gun. "Maybe she bought one" recently, he told the PE. Her family largely confirmed the image of Aghdam that had emerged in media reports late Tuesday. A militant animal rights activist, Aghdam ran a YouTube channel about cooking.

State records show she had once established a charity called Peace Thunder Inc., to "educate people about animal cruelty, environmental pollution" and other causes.

"For me, animal rights equal human rights," Aghdam told the San Diego Union-Tribune at a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals protest in 2009 outside Camp Pendleton.

When reporters visited the home, Aghdam's mother could reportedly be heard crying. They also spoke with her brother. The family came to California from Iran in 1996.

In a blurb published on her now deleted Instagram account, the shooter said she was born in the Iranian city of Urmiah in 1996, according to Reuters.

Writing in Persian on her Instagram account, Aghdam said she was born in the Iranian city of Urmiah and that she was not planning to return to Iran.

"I think I am doing a great job," she wrote. "I have never fallen in love and have never got married. I have no physical and psychological diseases. But I live on a planet that is full of injustice and diseases."

Aghdam had recently moved in with her grandmother in San Diego. She had been MIA since Saturday when her family reported her missing. In a morbid coincidence, Tuesday was also Aghdam's 39th birthday. At least three people were wounded in the assault; Aghdam is so far the only casualty.

I blame the guns!!!  It was the gun that did it not the innocent Vegan.  She just wanted to dance with squirrels and cows.  That evil gun had repeated accidental discharges, and then upon noticing and realizing there was one bullet left~~ she did the Vegan thing.

P.S. I think she was "mentally whacked" and that she was probably well enough to avoid institutionalization but ended up going off the deep end.  I'll be she had some strange I only eat this or that.. the rest is "poison" mentality also.

She used a Smith & Wesson 9mm in the shooting, nobody died but the shooter and no non-human animals were harmed in the video.


^ this is why self defense I use a 357, not a 380, not a 9mm but a 357

The .357 Magnum, in 125 grain JHP, is unquestionably the most effective handgun cartridge in existence.  Its proven ability to produce one shot stops exceeds that of any other round, including more powerful cartridges such as the .41 Magnum and .44 Magnum.


They were somewhat fortunate to have been hit with the 9mm and not a 357

I am reading that 'she' was born a he (explains the 'build' and the 'bodybuilding'), and was 'Jewish for half her life' (which to some extent explains the Stars of David in the background of her Youtube criticism video).

Pretty much everything is up in the air.  It wouldn't surprise me to find out her entire likeness and persona were AI/computer-generated.

Adam Lanza Threatened Sandy Hook Killings Years Earlier, Records Show

We keep seeing things, and saying something.........  Isn't it funny how every last one of these have a common thread, they were known, had made threats, and on prescription drugs, all of them!

These drugs cause psychosis when you stop cold turkey, that pregnant women are forced to quit cold turkey, and postpartum depression is becoming an epidemic?

Apparently the AI can produce a likeness, but not a variety of facial expressions (she always has the same expression).  Also, 'she' is wearing wigs in most of her 'photos'. 


The background is obviously Photoshopped.  But is SHE computer generated, too? 

I think they may have shown a bit too much of their 'hand' with this one.  Military grade AI + computer-generated video?

This doesn’t align with the liberal narrative, either. Her exercise videos were apparently censored, in part, because of the age-inappropriateness.

Apparently, UTube takes down content on those grounds, although TV and the internet are full of stuff that previous generations would not have allowed on TV during the daytime to protect children. 

Other countries, like two that she was posting videos in, have extremely conservative, dictatorial, religious governments. 

These tech companies are full of liberal globalists, committed to a kumbaya version of international relations, which exempts only Russia.

Their advertised, pie-in-sky, global openness clashes with the speech suppression in many non-Western countries.

Tech companies are probably involved in all kinds of censorship conundrums due to trying to make these globally accessible, open products mesh with the rules in dictatorial regimes.

Of course, no censorship issue justifies her murderous reaction, and we see that the police cannot figure it out, even when warned directly. Did they not find the guns? She had to take them with her.

Maybe, in CA, there is so much homelessness due to out-of-control housing costs and underemployment of non-welfare-eligible citizens that police are constantly checking out people sleeping in their cars. It is just typical, nothing out of the ordinary.

ANOTHER massive FAIL for LE in Cali.

I am starting to wonder what good are the dept's for in these issues.

The Chief was back slapping THE DEPT and the officers last night, BEFORE this news came out.To get such an advance notice and NOT put her under a psyche eval was insane and intolerable.

Luckily no one is dead yet,except the perp.What if 25 had been shot and 50% died?. Just glad she was a crappy shot.

Same story, Cops alerted strongly warned, DID NOTHING.

As usual , Sen Feinstein said my prayers are with you, we need more GUN CONTROL,all in the same damned sentence.These Dem retards are killing me.

I disagree. I think this is a real attack this time:

>Not a white male

>No assault weapon / bump stock

>No one else died

>An actual motive (ruined livelihood)

>Makes the Deep State's youtube look bad (censorship)

>No connections to FBI, IMDB, acting school, etc. discovered yet

>No signs of an active drill in progress

>Not hyped up in the DSM (dinosaur media)

>Details about the shooter not revealed within seconds of the attack

>Building not slated to be demolished within hours of the attack

>David Hogg didn't race to the site on his bicycle

>Broward Cowards not standing outside

Other embedded videos include footage of animal cruelty, a text-to-speech video describing the risks of anal sex, as well as a vlog from Infowars editor-at-large Paul Joseph Watson decrying “popular culture” as “more vulgar, vapid, self-absorbed, hedonistic, and dehumanizing than at any other time in living memory.”

Twist the world, censor people with no explanation, fuck with people's minds and livelihoods and you get this. YouTube in it's infinite fuckedupidness has forgotten that they know almost none of their content creators. There is probably a boat load of live wires out there just waiting to pop.

"... Mountain View police let Aghdam go, telling her family she was all right..."

Mountain View police are a bunch of dumm fuks!

The dumb-asses could have prevented at least three families a lot of worry and heart-ache.

Whoever let this woman go needs to be kicked off the force and tried for accessory to manslaughter.
