Response to green for victory (Reply #4)

Mon Jan 14, 2013, 09:12 PM

11. Douglas Kennedy is the guy who got away with roughing up a couple of nurses who didn't

want him sauntering out of the hospital with his newborn without checking out first.

He has been working for Rupert Murdoch for years--first at the POST, then at FauxSnooze. He might be motivated to tout this story because it engenders strong emotions. Strong emotions produce ratings, ratings produce pay raises.

I'll bet that a lot of other factors are a strong indicator of the likelihood of someone shooting up a school; like, say
--Shyness
--Lack of empathy
--Low tolerance for frustration
--Angry outbursts
--Social rejection from peers
--Bad family relations
--Access to weapons

--Interest in Violent Media
--History of Violent Behavior
--Writing about Violence or Death
--Peer Rejection
--Suicidal Thoughts or Gestures

They're male and mostly caucasian, too.

--Male
--Caucasian
--Withdrawn (pulls back from school activities)
--Isolated or rejected from peers
--Living in a rural community
--Have easy access to weapons
--Bullied repeatedly from a young age (there is a point when the bullied child flips roles and becomes the bully)
--From a troubled home
