It disgusts me.
No one individual is to blame. Everyone is equally responsible.

I'm sure the history of mental illness in his family had nothing to do with it.
44.3 million American adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder.
10 million American adults have a major depressive disorder.
2.3 million American adults have a bipolar disorder.
I guess his interest in such child friendly things as the Nazi party had nothing to do with it.
If you want to blame someone, blame the grandfather and the teachers who didn't spot his internal struggles. It wasn't our kids' obsession with Paris Hilton and bling that drove him to kill these people.
