In generations past there were "mass murders" or "massacres", of course, but over the past 20 years there seem to be several incidents each year in the US in particular. Do you have theories you would like to share? Are these incidents related to economic hard times? Anti-depressants? Total moral and spiritual breakdown in society? What do you think?

Thank you Kem312-- I tend to think along these same lines when searching for some kind of rationale for this violence. When I have an IT hangover I go for a long walk with my dog and/or do some info-dumping on my husband of 42 years. Helps.
thank you Lily Luna-- it IS complex, isn't it?
no significant statistical increase? that's interesting... do you have a source for this information (with stats) connorj? thank you for providing this perspective! and any idea why one geographical area might be so skewed?
With open arms, we welcome the conspiracy theorists. Next, we should talk about how the Jews have persecuted Mel Gibson for several years.
I truly hope the robots don't invade my home, not knowing how to correctly spell my name.
I'm sure there would have been an easier way to bump off the Judge.
Thank you for sharing your theory somethgblue-- I don't really follow American politics, per se, but I am emotionally impacted when I hear about a mass of innocent people being murdered in a public place. 12 corpses would seem to meet that criteria
You don't know how to spell your own name? I don't reckon I'd be sharing that information with folks . . . !?
thanks Kari Pete for your thoughtful response to the question. So, it is the weapon availability for unstable people that makes it more likely that this sort of trend to mass killing will continue?
thank you whittwrites for your contribution to this puzzling question... I personally believe that there is a great deal of credence to what you have to say about the diminishment of respect for human life. I see the same moral breakdown elsewhere.
Thank you for sharing your point of view, handymanbill. I agree that there is a tendancy for these horrific events to be covered repeatedly, ad nauseum, but is not the same true with certain sporting events? (why we don't have TV or get a newspaper)
