Last week, there was another public mass shooting in the US. The tragedy got me thinking about the flawed social system we live in. One common element, though, kinda stuck out. It didn't make sense. Why do most of the mass murderers commit suicide? When you look at all the mass murders that have occurred in the US, very few of the killers walk out alive. You have a few that get gunned down by police, but most take their own lives. I can't think of any that live and go to court. Why do they kill themselves? Do they suffer from the "oh shit, I screwed up" syndrome? You'd think that some of those crazies (like the VT shooter) would have chosen to be captured in order to spread their messages. Hollywood always lets the mass murderers live (until the end of the movie). And it can't be linked to video games, that's for sure. You get negative frags for suicide. I dunno... Maybe since I'm not screwed up in the head, I can't understand their motives?
