loss of a sense of reality), and/or to a consequence of significant violent traumatization—such as that of early physical abuse, that contributes to the development of dissociative states of mind (i.e.disavowal of reality, derealization, depersonalization). In short, as clinical psychiatrist Daniel Schechter has written, for a baby to develop into a troubled adolescent who then turns lethally violent, a convergence of multiple interacting factors must occur, that is "every bit as complicated..it is for a tornado to form on a beautiful spring day in Kansas." One "trait" that has not yet attracted as much attention is the gender difference: nearly all school shootings are perpetrated by young males, and in some instances the violence has clearly been gender-specific.Cyberbullying has changed the effect of bullying in another way. in the modern era a bully can also do so on Facebook and Twitter for the world to see.Once something is on the Internet, it cannot truly be removed, further enhancing the torment.This formula of three enables the bully to easily create public humiliation for their victim.Students who are bullied tend to develop behavioral problems, depression, less self-control and poorer social skills, and to do worse in school.Once humiliated, victims never want to be a victim again and try to regain their image by joining groups.Often, they are rejected by their peers and follow through by restoring justice in what they see as an unjust situation.
Nutt explains through the examination of the way in which news exposure is connected not to the victims, but the perpetrators. in an age of internet news and 24 hour news cycle, to avoid doing so would be seen as poor news reporting, but it also means those who feel nameless and as though no one will care or remember them when they are gone may feel doing something such as a school shooting will make sure they are remembered and listed in the history books." In a 2015 New Republic essay, Columbine author Dave Cullen described a subset of school shooters (and other mass murderers) known as "injustice collectors." The essay described and expanded on the work of retired FBI profiler Mary Ellen O'Toole, who has published a peer-reviewed journal article on the subject.
Despite the fact that the article exposed the readers to both the mental illness of the shooter, and the fact that the shooter used high-capacity magazines, participants advocated more for gun restrictions on people with mental illness rather than bans on high-capacity magazines.
This suggests that people believe mental illness is the culprit for school shootings in lieu of the accessibility of guns or other environmental factors.
One group read an article that presented only the facts of the case.
A different group read an article about the same shooting, but in it the author advocated for gun restrictions for people with mental illness.
