Until *SCHOOL SHOOTINGS* no one had really answered the question, “Why do they do it?” This book examines the phenomenon from every possible angle – suicidal ideation, bullying, prescription drugs, media influences, psychological backgrounds, gender issues and much more. Both books also include a harrowing, detailed examination of the only shooting incident in which a young man was arrested the previous day for having a loaded, stolen gun in his school locker – and then RELEASED! Why? The answer will shock you. Fifteen-year-old Kip Kinkel then went on to murder his parents at home — ironically, both of them teachers — and then go his school and wound the highest number of individuals by gunfire in any high school rampage in history [including Columbine], killing two students.
