Now, when they are confronted with a situation that requires rational thinking, they are ill prepared and regress to the "Eye for a Life" syndrome in that they will kill because someone called them a loser.
The coin is two sided in that the bullies have become unbearable when in the past a parent would have stepped in had they known how mean their child was acting, but I blame both cases (be it the bully who snaps, or the victim of being bullied for too long) on the fact that parents would rather accept a medical condition that needs the treatment from medication that we don't have a clue how it will affect our bodies 10, 20, 30 years down the road as a suitable answer for their children acting out, rather than taking the time to place discipline, love, and understanding with their children.
Since the majority of these "crazies" come from a background of broken homes or neglectful parents, I am placing the blame on them for committing the act, but also the parents who sent them into the world without preparing them for just how "rough" and "mean" the world can be to an individual.

That's right, it all revolves around me
