    Almost all (72%) mass murderers, spree killers, and serial killers are abused by there parents. If people would just pay attention a little more, many lives could be saved. Based off what I am reading up on now this young man from todays shooting did suffer mental illness, a divorced set of parents, a developmental delay, and a very strict mother. There is probably so much more that will come out to show us how much trama this young man probably suffered in his life before he turned to killing all these people.

      It blew my mind that they first said it was his brother Ryan.  That had to really have an impact on him.

      Sad and as usual Peeples, what you say is so true.

    Signs are shown by the potential murderer and those who come into contact with them are able to prevent trouble by intervening. For example there are reports saying the killer in CT had a case of autism or Asberger's. This is yet to be confirmed but if this was the case, it's likely that someone other than him might have known he needed a bit of help dealing with life. Often there is at least one or two people that know the person enough to know they're a danger to themselves or others. Few take action though. I hope that all of these innocent children and adults did not die because no one took action in the CT case.

      I have a student who insists that he listen to music in class.  He said it keeps him from hearing voices.  He has done bizarre things and I continually report him.  My class is afraid and want him "out!"  He has done court-ordered anger management.

      This is absolutely frightening! Perhaps there is a school counselor or psychologist he can be referred to or one at a social services agency. He is not in music class and hearing voices is a problem. You are doing the right things in this case.

      Express the counselor told me to write him up when he misbehaves and send him out.  I must allow him to wear earphones with no music.  This supposedly blocks the voices.  He asked to do a solo, messed up, said "F*K" in mic and began beating head

      First off, I must say to you GOD bless you. You are doing what you can in this difficult situation. Is there any way to get his family more involved and aware?

      Express, they are very aware.  There is a very violent history caused by a father who is in prison.  He perpetrated the worst crimes possible on his daughters.
