    I know a lot of the shooters in these school shooting felt like they had nothing to lose. Their lives felt ruined so they were going to make people pay.

    It is a horrible thing all the way around. Young lives destroyed by terrible acts of cruelty who go on to destroy often innocent young lives.

    And just calling someone evil like some are want to do, not saying you BTW, is not the answer. Very few people are born "evel".  Addressing the root causes is what will prevent more tragedies.

      are far more likely to do harm to themselves as to others.  Even here at Kos, I wonder how many are either former or active "cutters"

      •  this is true. only a small number (0+ / 0-)

        act out like school shooters. My experience with "cutters" is that it is a response to sexual abuse and is primarily done by girls, boys tend to do other self injurious things like extreme risky activity.
