Dr. Cliff about the Latest School Shooting

Another horrible and unnecessary school shooting today. It doesnt take a CSI team to figure out which way the alleged shooter, T.J.Lane, was going. Look up his Facebook profile. He has a sister. He looks glum and detached. He plays Assassins’ Creed , a violent videogame that is advertised as “For True Professional Assasins” and is into cats and Anime.


Liking cats isn’t so bad, but he is “inspired” by David Icke, a conspiracy nut who believes fascism and chameleon aliens haunt us daily. His favorite movies are the Fight Club, Let Me In, and The Others, movies describing depressive environments of violence, horror, frustration and detachment. In The Others, a boy and his sister live in a ghostly world cut off from others, and turn out to be actually dead already. In Let Me In, a quasi vampire movie the plot is even more telling as a boy is bullied relentlessly and plots his violent revenge. The Facebook essay that TJ wrote on his Facebook wall is consistent with the other main characters described as loners who seeks to turn the tables violently on those who live in safe “castles”.Only four people “liked” his post written while in school, one of which was his sister. Ok, I have a Ph.D. but I dont think it was necessary to have seen someone who was emotionally troubled and really needed help.
