Why did Rodger kill his roommates?

Did he give any reason for killing them?

1. Haven't followed this that much, but I'm guessing he hated them

 

he seemed to have a lot of hate inside him. Maybe he felt they slighted him somehow, and had been quietly fuming about it to himself for a long time. I don't know.

2. Read his manifesto.

He was jealous that they had women and he needed them gone to use his apartment to torture other victims.

6. Nope

The ones he killed were timid & he never saw them with any women.
He thought they were worthless & expendable.

3. From what I understand...

 

...he felt he 'needed' space with which to lure, torture, and kill other people for a while first and their presence would make that unlikely.

4. "These were the biggest nerds I had ever seen, and they were both very ugly with annoying voices"

"If they were pleasant to live with, I would regret having to kill them, but due to their behavior I now had no regrets about such a prospect. In fact, I'd even enjoy stabbing them both to death while they slept."

He'd also caught one of them stealing his candles, performed a "citizen's arrest", and had him charged for it:

The sheriff revealed during a news conference Saturday that in January, Rodger accused Hong of stealing $22 worth of candles from him. Rodger took the unusual step of making a citizen's arrest for petty theft and contacted sheriff's deputies, who arrested Hong. He was booked and released, but the two men evidently continued living together.

5. It's in his written manifesto

Two new housemates moved into my apartment for the Autumn semester. They were two foreign
Asian students who attended UCSB. These were the biggest nerds I had ever seen, and they were both
very ugly with annoying voices. My last two housemates, Chris and Jon, were nerds as well, but at least
they were friendly and pleasant. These two new ones were utterly repulsive, and one of them had a very rebellious demeanor about him. He went out of his way to start arguments with me whenever I raised
the issue of the noise he made. Hell, even living with Spencer was more pleasant than these two idiots. I knew that when the Day of Retribution came, I would have to kill my housemates to get them out of the way. If they were pleasant to live with, I would regret having to kill them, but due to their behavior I now had no regrets about such a prospect. In fact, Id even enjoy stabbing them both to death while
they slept.

9. Not sure, but I guess he used a hammer, knife and a machete on them.

Really tortured them, he must have had some serious hate going on to do that.

10. IT appears he would derive great pleasure from stabbing them to death.

 

Pleasure.

13. Because they were in his way. He needed room to torture women.

14. To get them out of the way so he could carry out his deranged agenda?

His deranged agenda was something to the effect of killing all the stuck up blond girls (or some such guano)
