On Thursday, police Captain Patrick Steinsen held a press conference to address the release of the manifesto and why it took so long to arrest Cristock but refrained from answering questions pertaining to former colleague, Edward Scott. When a reporter commented that Cristock was blaming society for his actions, Steinsen replied by saying, "So he’s blaming you right? The suspect has been arrested for killing children, children, and you think we should be on the hook for the sickness he represents?”
We’ve obtained scanned copies of the manifesto and have transliterated it for those who may have trouble reading Cristock’s penmanship. We have not edited the manifesto and advise our readers that it contains mature language not suitable for a younger audience.
