Pekka Eric Auvinen

Pekka Eric Auvinen (aka NaturalSelector89, Natural Selector, Sturmgeist89 and Sturmgeist) was the perpetrator of a shooting at Jokela High School in Tuusula, Finland. He admired the Columbine killers, specially Eric Harris. The day of the attack he wore a black shirt with the words "Humanity is overrated"

He has been bullied since elementary school and has been shot with pellet guns on his way to school. He is described by his teachers as a bright student with a keen interest in history.

Auvinen wrote a manifesto. His ideologies included a mix of cynicism, social Darwinism, antihumanism and nihilism, describing humanity as overrated and a species among other animals. He was also a fervent militant atheist as well, perceiving essentially all religions as stupid and pointless. Lastly, he hated democracy so much that he also included the Finnish parliament in his list of targets. He also stated that he is going to shoot alcoholics or a mall, but his final decision was his school, as it is easily publicized.

He had an obsession with guns and revolutionary history, and held extremist views aligned with both the far left and the far-right. He reportedly had admiration for Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Seung Hui Cho, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Ted Kaczynski.
