Hey my first poll. Okay so personally I think it's a combination of antidepressants, hatred for those who were harassing him and possibly molestation. Oh have you see the video? I think someone posted it earlier. I'll look for it and post it in a bit. none (stoic- the way a man should be)

tumour in the frontal lobe does not cause psychopathic behaviors.......There is one choice you have forgotten. Natural Mental instability. Meaning he just went crazy. No medical files indicate he was subscribed to medications. No police file of previous family concern.

It causes a loss of judgement. Which given the right circumstances will cause someone who normally wouldn't act out their darkest thoughts to do just that. Seriously it was on an episode of Law and Order CI and they don't lie (haha)

Oh here's the link for the video thanks to daed:

Hey voldemort you are creeping me out man. smile Oh and Ares6 you didn't post your reason or was that you reason (he was just crazy). Okay so I have only been following the story generally but I think you could put that option you mentioned under other.

In my opinion.......people with brain tumor don't become psychopath. Rather a biological problem with the brain might cause abnormality of logic. Frontal lobe is responsible for higher level thinking. Whatever the case may be. If the parents agree.....an autopsy is in order.

I guess we'll have to wait and see but on cnn I think they said it's a possibility that when he shot himself in the face he may have taken away any hope of them finding clues to his behaviour from his brain or something like that. As for being troubled by others in highschool well highschool can be pretty rough moreso for a person like him.

Correct me if I'm wrong. Virginia Tech is a State University. He hates rich kids. Normally, rich people sent their children to Private Universities....so.....

ares6 your avatar screws with my head..

But, anyways, it was said that "rich kids" could imply to mean the lucky people, who can talk to others, who have a "wealthy" relationship with other people whom the killer had the loner life.

Meaning us people.

from what i understood from todays article the guy didn't like how other people lived their lives. He hated the fact they partied to much with "vodka and cognac" and they had millions of chances to prevent this from happening. So far i haven't seen the full tape that he has sent NBC so thats all that was written in today's article. Even the the fact that the campus knew in 2005 he was causing problems and in 2006 a state judge recommended that he go get psychiatric help. That kid would have needed a lot of Prozac to make him happy. But in the end it was really kinda sad that his reasoning for his actions were that pathetic.

That doesn't mean they can't be rich kids there. And they don't have to necessarily be rich by society's standards just comparatively to him and his family. At least that was the impression I got from the news but then again you should always take what you hear on the news with a grain of salt.

Ares6 are u serious about this or is this sarcasm or one of your many "jokes"?
Oh and why are you calling me a she? I'm a guy not a girl.

Well....in his most disturbing play about a 13 year old kid getting molested by another guy....yeah....that's kind of like...lot of common manga theme. Of Course, I could be wrong. Forgive me if I have offended anyone here. I'm talking about the two plays he wrote in class.
