    I think it's because the people who do such things are seeing it as taking the easy way out of whatever situation they were in. Instead of people dealing with problems by talking things out or living with the outcome of a situation (for good or bad), they decide getting even is the best choice. And then still other people sympathize with the actions of the individual and so more and more people are deciding they can also get away with doing the same thing. Instead of a circle of violence, we're seeing an ever increasing outward spiral. The more people who are committing such crimes, the more people seem to seeing it as a great way to solve their own problems.

    Weasey --- Close your eyes and think of when you heard of each of the above. Who did you see as the shooter in your mind, before you knew? A twenty something man who was nuts with anger. I know these young men. I have a son and a nephew who lives with me that is that age and a daughter that age and I preach and teach to "youth" that age, along with counseling.
    Your picture above is out of sinc. That would be a sniper scope with a gray haired man. Not an up close and personal rage killing with psychosis.
    I also live here where marines and sailors come for basic training, usually 18 to 28 or so. A whole lot of anger and machismo and too much testosterone.

    At least once a week "my" youth come to me about such men. Asking questions about anger. And how they can help these young men.

    We see four commonalities. Loneliness. Deep seeded resentments. Overwhelming sense of entitlement. And absolutely no work ethic. You know me, I wish I could say "no spirituality" but that is not true. Bad families is also not true. Ugly is not true -- but they see themselves that way. Horrible trauma is not true. Lack of empathy seems prevalent by I caution on that. Bad teachers is not true. Recognizable and diagnosable psychosis is hazy at best.

    Normally as I think we can see, anti-authoritarian is normal. But not like antidisestablishmentarianism  Simply anger at authoriy.

    I like to think that in the last 15 years I have prevented 2-3 of these hideous occurrences. Although I will never know. But that is the flip side. We who should help are out of the loop because we treat young people as that. Not as friends and neighbors and buddies. Old farts like me, treat them like half men. Shameful and the ultimate cause. You and me are why they are increasing.

      Beautiful, Eric. But I suspect something like the CIA is right there to take advantage of such "disposable assets." After all, the 2nd Amendment runs counter to the Corporate Party agenda.

    One reason is low self esteem. Also the feeling of not being loved. Some of these people have been in abusive situations and they want to attack others for revenge. Some people cannot make the leap to self respect. They crave attention and cannot get it. They are too weak to stand on their own with self love and not depend on the love from others. They think people should treat them kind. But in a real world, that is not always the case. Some people cannot handle rudeness or disrepect from others on a long term bases, especially on the job. They don't have the maturity to overlook the slights from others. A loner usually feels like an outcast. Nobody wants to be his friend. He has delusions he keeps repeating to himself, such as: one day I'm going to show them! or everybody will know my name one day, they can't keep ignoring me! He doesn't know how to cultivate good friendships. This feeling of not being wanted or loved turns into rage. After repeating negative thoughts and emotions over years, he gets the idea of wanting massive attention. He sees others receiving fame for mass murders, it is the fast track. It becomes his drug, his goal, to be included in the notorious hall of fame.

    Here's my theory, based on lots of research and a little creative imagination. It needs a lot more data for corroboration. But before anyone starts slinging labels, like "conspiracy theorist," just do a reality check and ask yourself how many conspiracies there have been in the history of humanity.

    Psych profiles find raw talent. CIA is always looking for disposable assets to overthrow governments, start insurrection, or to pit one group against another to decrease social stability. They're not supposed to be working within the United States, but with all the crimes they've committed, what's one more?

    Someone has an agenda: Get rid of the 2nd Amendment. Why? Because an armed populace is harder to control. Citizens with serious weapons could jeopardize their plan: The dissolution of the United States. Why? Because the United States is the only government on the planet that could put a stop to the globalists plans of worldwide takeover. With America out of the way, it's much easier.

    But this isn't their only front. They have to dismantle the currency, too. That's why the national debt has skyrocketed in the last decade from an outrageous $5 Trillion to $17+ Trillion. War is big business, but it's also about finding leverage points -- oil and strategic locations in the Middle East. The US may look strong, but when it crumbles (when the Debt Bubble Bursts), the US military will become owned by the new master. USA will no longer exist. The "Constitution" will be a forgotten shred of paper.

    The end result:
    * Psychopathic elite in control of everything.
    * RFID implants in everyone to keep them under control (even the elite).
    * Slavery for everyone who is not killed in the worldwide carnage that's about to take place.

    World peace? Yes. Freedom, upward mobility, national sovereignty, private ownership and more -- all gone.

      Lonestar this is just crazy. But it surely does have a ring of truth to it. Certainly to a degree it has some cause and effect accuracy.
