I know of the 'Loner' prejudice the media/politicians/police etc have. If I ever used to go for a walk or a drive and it wwas after dark I would also get stopped by police asking where I am going and what I am doing and such. If you say you are just out for a walk or drive they automatically think this is some sort of weird and suspicious behaviour.

It doesn't get any more point blank than that. Spineless, emasculated, weak. With this kind of crowd tweeting around it's no wonder society is crumbling into chaos. Taking over people like that is more than easy.

I feel ya.
Circumstances and experiences with people have made me prefer the company of myself instead of wanting to mix with others, I feel safest on forums such as this because we're all fairly anonymous and there's little to no judgment like in the "real world".
Again, Loughner and his loner mentality could describe any number of people and yet as my own experiences show, even family members think wanting to be alone and get on with your own little pet projects as odd rather than going out into society doing meaningless things and since we've turned into a society where spending weekends downing copious amounts of alcohol and sleeping with the first person available has become the norm, apparently those who choose to do the opposite will now be scrutinised as potential future shooters.
