1. A lack of moral compass due to the disintegration of the family. No more meals at the table, no more family functions and outings, no more interaction with parents, especially mothers, on a daily basis during the formative years due to the fact that both parents must work now to survive. Possibly a single parent who was forced to neglect their raising due to having to work long hours. All combined A backlash against tried-and-proven parenting techniques like spanking and creative discipline.
2. Saturation of their personas with violence from a young age including hyper-realistic violent videogames featuring unrelenting gore and blood, torture movies, television, and sociopathic music. All glorified and worshipped as "cool" by our society.
3. Warping of the personality thanks to bullying, vicious name-calling, sexual harrassment, verbal abuse, and alienation from social development leading to a "loner" type psyche.
Mix in easy access to weapons, shake well, cook in the indifferent pressure cooker of a crowded school for a couple of years, light fuse and ...
BOOM! Instant Columbine.
Who said this was only a misdemeanor crime? I really hate when this forum get off on a roll from someones comment.
