Chesapeake, Virginia police on Friday released the content of a “manifesto” found on the cellphone of Andre Bing, the accused killer of six at a local Walmart where he worked. Bing, who also killed himself, blamed the massacre on “torment” by coworkers and demonic influences.
“Sorry God, I’ve failed you, this was not your fault but my own. I failed to listen to the groans of the holy spirit which made me a poor representation of You,” Bing wrote in a note released Friday by Chesapeake police:
Sorry God, I’ve failed you, this was not your fault but my own. I failed to listen to the groans of the holy spirit which made me a poor representation of You.
As reported by Fox News, Bing legally purchased the 9mm handgun used in the massacre on the morning of the shooting at a local store, police said on Friday. Law enforcement officials also revealed they found a box of ammunition and “various items in reference to the 9mm handgun (box, receipt, other paperwork)” at Bing’s home.
The suspect, who committed suicide after “hunting” and killing six people, whom he reportedly shot at least twice to make sure they were dead, wrote in the “death note” that he felt targeted for harassment by his coworkers who he was convinced were intentionally trying to “sabotage” his life.
I was harassed by idiots with low intelligence and a lack of wisdom, I remained strong through most of the torment but my dignity was taken away beyond repair by my phone getting hacked.
They laughed at me and said I was just like Jeffrey Dahmer.
Bing suggested that for these reasons, his co-workers deserved to die:
A few months back I had overheard [REDACTED] talking to [REDACTED] and he told me that he had been trying to get rid of me since day one. After I heard that I lashed out. The associates gave me twisted grins, mocked me and celebrated my down fall [sic] the last day. That’s why they suffer the same fate as me.
The “weapon of war,” here, was Andre Bing’s sick mind.

Bing also blamed his parents in part for not paying “closer attention to [his] social deficits.”
My only wish would’ve been to start over from scratch and that my parents would’ve paid closer attention to my social deficits. Sorry everyone but I did not plan this [sic] I promise things fell into place like I was led by Satan. … I only did it when I realized my phone was hacked and was giving the worst feeling imaginable. I wish that I could’ve save everyone from myself.
He ended his manifesto with a convoluted reference about wanting to get married but believed he didn’t deserve a wife.
My true intent was never to murder anymore believe it or not, I was actually one of the most loving people in the world if you would get to know me. I just wanted a wife that was equally yoked as I and obsessed over the though; however, I didn’t deserve a wife.
Bing’s chilling last line reads: “My God forgive me for what I’m going to do.”
One Walmart employee, who did not want to be named, worked with Bing before leaving the Chesapeake Walmart to take a promotion at a different store. The former employee described Bing as “carefree and easygoing.”
From what I saw, he was a good guy, but I’ve heard he had some issues, and they tried to talk him through his issues,” the employee said, noting that he didn’t know the suspect to have any anger issues.
I knew some of the victims. They were good people. They were real good people. Just came in and did their job, usually had a pretty good demeanor, and got along with everybody.
The Bottom Line
Yet again, Joe Biden and the Democrat Party, the lapdog liberal media, and gun-grabbers across the fruited plain pulled hamstrings while rushing to microphones and TV cameras to exploit a horrific shooting by a very troubled individual as another excuse to hawk gun control and threaten the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners.
