Nashville School Shooter’s Disturbing Journal Reveals Deep-Seated Issues And Murderous Intent

Leaked pages from the journal of Audrey Elizabeth Hale, the Nashville school shooter, reveal a deeply troubled individual with severe “daddy issues” and violent tendencies. Hale, who identified as a trans male, carried out a deadly attack on the Christian Covenant School on March 27, 2023, killing three children and three staff members before being shot by responding officers.

Hale’s writings, which the FBI had withheld citing potential interference with ongoing investigations, were partially leaked last November to “Louder With Crowder” host Steven Crowder. These leaks unveiled a manifesto with left-wing and anti-white sentiments. Recently, more pages from Hale’s journal have surfaced, revealing intense personal turmoil and hatred toward her father.

One entry, dated February 13, 2023, captures Hale’s dark thoughts: “I saved your ass, not once but twice,” she wrote, reflecting on her actions with a sense of pride and confidence. The entry continued with disturbing imagery about “sucking the marrow out of life” and a desire to destroy, ending with a declaration of hatred toward her father.

Hale’s diary details her struggles with her father’s perceived neglect and emotional absence. “I hate when my dad loves on the cats; not me,” she wrote, expressing resentment and feeling unloved. Psychologists often link such intense feelings of neglect to the “dark triad” personality traits: narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy.

Further entries reveal Hale’s profound gender dysphoria and dissatisfaction with her identity. She described herself as “the most unhappy boy alive” and expressed a desire to end her life due to her inability to reconcile her gender identity with her physical body.

Hale also penned political rants, condemning the United States for failing to protect the rights of various groups, including gun owners and the LGBTQ community. She lamented the perceived criminalization of being transgender or non-binary, expressing her frustration and anger toward society.

The journal entries paint a picture of a person overwhelmed by inner demons and external pressures. Hale’s writings about wanting to kill her father and her hatred toward men like him underscore the severity of her psychological issues. Her diary is a stark reminder of the potential dangers posed by untreated mental health issues and the importance of addressing such concerns proactively.

The leaked documents continue to shed light on Hale’s motives and the depth of her psychological struggles, prompting further discussions about mental health, gun control, and the societal factors contributing to such tragedies.
