Judge is back now to start the afternoon session
Ready to bring in the jury!
King resumes his questioning
"Did you ask him how this anxiety manifested itself.. in middle school?" "Yes. I didn't have to ask him a lot about that, he volunteered that the anxiety caused him not to want to speak to people"
"he trained himself to speak to people in spite of his anxiety" so as to not appear strange
"He indicated that (anxiety) continued to increase, basically, through all of this time" (middle school thru grad school)
"He felt barraged and that had to do with the ongoing interactions that were part of the graduate school curriculum and so he felt barraged by the anxiety"
Gunman also told Woodcock about "para-suicide" cutting of his wrists with cardboard
Woodcock says gunman's thoughts of suicide as a child is "very significant" and doesn't happen a lot
Woodcock says it could be considered a schizotypal kind of disorder, even at that age (much earlier than that is typically diagnosed)
Woodcock reads from notes that gunman thought of "homicide against everybody or else the world"... "This was a general impulse or an urge to kill people"
Woodcock asked about specific plans: "He mentioned several ideas, which I thought were fantasies"... for instance nuclear bomb
"He felt his symptoms had overwhelmed him"
"It is very hard for people with these types of illnesses, usually, to seek help and participate fully in the process."
"He said also that he was minimally explicit with the doctors" about the plans, Woodcock said
Gunman told Woodcock about plans A, B & C. "He said that they were longstanding ides that he had"
Plan A: Find a fix or cure for neurological impairment.
Plan B: Would be the opposite, biological weapons. "He's basically saying it would be killing a lot of people"
Plan C: "He just said, 'What I did.'"
Gunman told Woodcock he failed at Plan A by failing in school, considered plan b, committed plan c
