I'm suggesting that there is no correlation between violence and depression.

why? I challenge you to find any peer reviewed study linking clinical depression as a cause of increased levels of violence. as usual, you come across as a brash arrogant ******* with no substance.

Yeah I totally agree. The media, more often then not, hypes things up for their publicity's sake. Columbine is a prime example of that. But the truth is if I didn't read this ground-breaking article, I would have still stuck to the old myth of the two shooters as extreme social-out casts--which they weren't. So I am guessing the media labeled them that way for the sake of giving the public easy but not necessary accurate answers (which the media habitually does).

Yea Columbine helped me realize that the media is just a sensationalist machine that will push incorrect facts for viewers.
