    Social support is a huge factor. Anyone (that includes kids and adults) who feels isolated and alone in this world is at risk for destructive behavior. Whether it's to themselves or others. Alienation has been shown to be behind most substance abuse and suicide. Finding a sense of support, even if it's not all that great, stems the risk. Of course, good support from reliable and consistent parents and friends is the ideal.

    Whoever this guy was, seems like he was completely alone. Living in his car, probably quite poor, no outlet for any feelings likely. I don't condone his actions, but can see the path to insanity in that. If he was able to at least get to a homeless shelter or find some sense of community (or ideally, a mental hospital), this whole situation would probably not have happened.

    I can't believe that this happened and it makes me extremely mad/sad/infuriated/whatever...

    It is so sad, I feel terrible for the families involved...

    I thought that most schools had ID cards now. I think maybe they should have to scan an ID to get in to the school to prevent this from happening again.

    Kids should feel safe in their own school...

    i agree...though parents will complain about it being to difficult for them to deal with...its amazing how much parents will fight against school policies...and all it takes is one unhappy parent to mess up everything...

    Yeah. I know for a fact that I wouldn't be able to walk into my old high school during school hours. They would catch me pretty quick, and I blend in far more than a 53 year old douchebag.

    This is truly just a terrible act. I know my old High School has ID cards, they have to wear them around their neck..

    Ugh. Premeditated sexual assault and murder/suicide. I don't think I could have any kind of mercy for this one. Sorry God. My heart's not there yet.
