Who would you blame if a youngster massacred his classmates at school, then killed himself after his killing spree- the parents, the environment or himself? Please explain your point of view.

Hi Mel, mmmm, it can be, I think human behavior can be transmited from the parents to the kids, so I maybe can be himself. But the environment is the other part, I mean, seeing so much violence, even being masscred could cause him to be a massacrer.

So I choose both.

Big greetings and big hugs

Hi Mel, I think it's the environment, everyone do what they see, I mean, if they see violence, they'll think it's right, so they'll be violent. If they see peace, they'll be peaceful, even pacifists.

The human behavior can be transmited, but it's not demostrated yet.

Greetings and hugs

Nice Day, with my whole soul:

hello mel,

thanks for visiting my site, sure I'll link you up too.

to answer your question, you have two choices to blame, either the situation (environment) or the person (disposition). If you are an Asian, you would probably blame the environment and if you are an American you would likely to blame the person. But I would say that it is a combination of both, each has a role to the killing of that person.

Hi Arthur,
So you choose both parents and the environment. Thanks for your point of view. Sometimes peer pressure and ridicule can also add to the distress of an individual that he can countenance to commit a massacre of his classmates. Thanks for your visit and wonderful comments. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Hi Beibi,
You maybe right. Maybe it's a combination of both the person and the environment. Thanks for your valid point of view. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Hi Gusthav,
Sorry I overlook your comments and was not able to make a comment on your comment. That's a valid point of view. For you it is the environment that should be blamed if a youngster goes haywire and do something pernicious to society. Thanks for you valuable point of view. God bless you and your family always my young friend.
