Thanks for the information. I think that there was a problem with the family and the educational authorities had difficulty taking control of the ball.
I never was a perfect kid and I'm telling you my family had issues. I chose religeon rather than firearms. Quote Christianity is the opiate of the people. Unquote.

The actual quote refers to ''religion'' in general actually.

Why can't these idiots shoot themselves FIRST and save everybody else the trouble?

I imagine that only shooting yourself is less 'satisfying' than taking other members of the human race with you. If you take your own life you get relief from your situation and you also get dead.

Daft question that does not address the problem.

If only the House would be willing to pour money into mental health services, this sort of thing could have been averted.

Simply put..they want attention. They want to become famous, and who are you going to remember more..the guy who simply shot himself..or the guy that shot up a public place and killed multiple people?

I think you really are daft. The gun man wanted to send a message, and he did it via the shooting of school children. A lone suicide doesn't do that, as Pang mentioned.
