So you're going to classify rage as a mental illness? Rage is a human characteristic - a characteristic that all humans share and experience - not all of us are Gandhi-types.
But if you must be all inclusive, I'll play in your court for awhile...ever flip someone off while driving? How about cuss at the lady in the drive-thru? How about cussing under your breathe at your mother-in-law? How about your boss? How about when your team loses the big game? Never have a fight with your wife or girlfriend?
Uh oh...that's a sign of mental illness pal (nudge, nudge, wink, wink).
Not all mass killings were due to mental illness - clinically diagnosed mental illness. It is literally impossible to diagnose mental illness clinically post-mortum.
Your comparisons of anger are a long way from killing multiple people. Itís perfectly normal for us to become angry in some situations. Weíre talking about people which externalize extreme rage resulting in the deaths of many people.

Whatís your explanation for those that would kill people randomly? Especially in the case of small children. Thereís something seriously wrong with the individual.

Itís not as difficult as you think. It took years to fully evaluate the Columbine shooters. Interviews with friends, family and associates will often reveal a pattern which may be used to formulate a reasonable conclusion.

Again, it has never been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that either Harris or Klebold had a mental illness prior to the shootings. The FBI has said that they believed Harris to be a psychopath and Klebold was depressive. That report was challenged by many psychologists after the report came out, blaming everything from video games to bullying. The truth is, we will never know - post-mortum diagnosis of mental illness is virtually impossible. These kids were loners - they kept to themselves, so there wasn't a lot of information gleened from friends and family interviews.

(normal to psychotic ) Google said: About 1% of the population worldwide suffers from psychotic disorders. These disorders most often first appear when a person is in his or her late teens, 20s, or 30s.

IMO: Most abnormal occurrences are caused by 'things' that change 0r (alternate) the chemical construction of the body and mind from living curcumstances to drugs to the food you eat.
Something so simple that everyone wants to complicate.

Yes, letís bring violent video games into this debate. Many alleged professionals claim they can be blamed for violent behavior in youth. The reality is somewhat different. A mentally healthy individual is very unlikely to be influenced while someone with mental illness is much more likely to be influenced.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt would be irrelevant in the determination of mental illness. How many of those opposing the mental illness conclusion actually reviewed all available material?

Then consider carefully, what kind of person without mental illness would claim the life of people, especially children without reason?

As Adam Lorenz and others - they were misfits. They didn't fit in the normal cliques that are associated with the usual high school groups. Being a loner(s) does not warrant a mental illness. Planning and avenging a bullying episode doesn't either. It's called revenge. You have your opinion, I have mine - I just don't see throwing the term "mental disorder" at every misunderstood teen that curses under his breathe and wishes the local high school bully were dead.

Youíre comparing apples and oranges.

Letís look at motive. What was Adam Lanzaís motive? What motiv did James Holmes have? The motive of Jared Loughner had was discovered but would a sane person carry out the crime based on that motive? What was Choís motive at Virginia Tech?

Finally Klebold and Harris. They did have a hit list but no one on the hit list was injured.

You brought revenge into this. Were any of these revenge? Thereís no way any of these shooter didnít have a mental disorder.

Obama's reply to the petition was nothing more than a campaign speech; his White House is abridging our right to petition by his petition sham.

Petition your representatives in the House and Senate. Nip demagogy in the bud.

Violent crime is down by 54% since the 1990s, this includes murders to the tune of 10,000 less murders per year. Therefore, there is no video game connection.

We did, the evidence doesnít support your conclusions.

Video games? Come back to reality. Some talking heads guess thatís a valid cause.

Actually, it's just as much of a valid guess as mental illness. My conclusions were based on the diagnosis of psychologists.

"Following their January 1998 arrest for theft, both youths had computer access restricted. Block believes that their personal anger, which was initially projected into video games, was now unleashed into the real world. In addition, the restriction of their computer access opened up substantial amounts of idle time that would have otherwise gone towards their online activities. Block said Harris and Klebold increasingly used this free time to express their anger, with their antisocial tendencies likewise increasing. This, in turn, generated further restrictions. Ultimately, after the 1998 arrest and their being banned from personal computer access for approximately one month, the two teens became homicidal and began documenting plans to attack the school. Block writes that the plan to attack the school first appears in Klebold's writings, and that Klebold may have considered using a different partner-in-crime than Harris. This person's name was redacted from Klebold's journal by police."

Try another source other than Wiki. Did you know anyone can create or modify a Wiki entry?

Video games will not impact someone without mental defect.
