Rampage Killers

Rampage killers are different from everyday murderers, they feel for some reason that they are invisible within society and they want to do something to change that and make their mark or they simply just don’t think that living is worthwhile anymore. They are a special breed of killers because there are many different factors that need to be present for them to kill. The nature vs. nurture theory is no more and it is said that for someone to because a rampage killer every factor has to be aligned. These supposed factors would be biological, social, behavioral, genetic/chemical, environmental, age/gender, maternal care, school, emotional needs, and behavior modification ...view middle of the document...

They looked at a family of baby rats and found that the babies that were cared for and licked grew up to be friendlier and nicer as opposed to the babies whose mother was more hands off who grew up to be aggressive and mean. When the examined further they found that in the brain of the babies that were being licked and cared for cells located in the hippocampus turned on a gene that created stress hormones. But when the babies weren’t getting that attention a chemical reaction occurred that shut down the gene and caused problems with the stress hormone that stayed until later in life. This lead to looking into the research of human babies and calming themselves. They found that the babies that had to learn to calm themselves because the mother was standoffish or anything else had more behavioral problems when they started school. They also found that these were the kids that were going to have suicidal thoughts later in life or be antisocial in school.
When these kids get older they look at the prefrontal cortex again to see if it’s stunted in anyway. If it is that could make it harder for teens to control their emotions and higher level thinking, making it easier for them to lash out aggressively. School can add all of those extra stressors to these teens, like the difference between them fitting in or standing out. If the teens get to high school and they can’t fit in or they get into a crowed of the “loners” they are going to have a harder time dealing with the stress of everything then other kids. The kid that doesn’t feel like they fit in and can’t control or deal with the stress in a civil way will be the kid to act out aggressively against everyone else that they feel makes them invisible. You also have the kid that gets bullied constantly, whether it be their friends just joking around and messing with them or a bully who wants to hurt the kid, they can’t decipher the difference and in turn can’t deal with the two situations differently. These kids won’t deal with the anger now they will internalize their anger and stress and deal with it later when it all gets to be too much and they feel that there is no other way to deal with the problems.
In school everyone has emotional needs that they need to have fulfilled by their peers. Originally everyone wants to be accepted and liked by their peers but when this doesn’t happen, when they don’t feel accepted that will change their self-image. When these teens feel that they aren’t being accepted they will change how they feel about themselves and that will eventually lead to them feeling invisible. This was the case for one of the shooters of Columbine High School on April 20th, 1999. Dylan Klebold was one of the two shooters of Columbine. He was extremely...
