To be honest, I don’t like saying “cause.” There is no real good cause of a teenager¬†premeditating¬†murder. Ironically, I am reading Freud at the moment, about id and the lack of impulse control. In many ways, this is a symptom of our social break down, in which the id, the negative, natural impulses of sinful humanity, is being elevated over the superego. Our mimetic theatre of desire (television, internet) is helping to drive some of this, I believe.

Let us pray for the families involved, and the young men responsible for these terrible actions.
