Perhaps, but there has to be something else going on.
A million years ago when I was in grade school, there were cliques ... jock cliques, rich kid cliques, cool kid cliques, stoner cliques, nerd cliques. And there were a number of kids who didn't seem to "fit in" to any clique. We all knew who they were. They mostly kept to themselves. There was also access to guns. Guns laws were very lax back then. The difference is that the kids who didn't fit in didn't express their anger/frustration by going on shooting rampages. Perhaps they fantasized about it. I don't know. But they didn't actually do it.
I wonder how much the constant publicity the killers get plays into motivations?
you don't post something like that unless you are giving it some endorsement
