A high school, a college campus, a movie theater, and Friday, a kindergarten classroom. Mass shootings happen far too often, but psychiatrists say there’s a common thread among those responsible.
“Think about the male role, it’s always been to be the provider,” said Dr. Frank Lozano, and psychiatrist and mental health advocate. Going through Friday’s tragedy and past shootings, Lozano points out the suspects have all been male and in their early to mid 20’s.
“(They’re) probably feeling a sense of futility in their existence. They’re just getting out of college, finding their way,” Lozano told FOX40.
But when they find there way to a school, on a chilly Friday morning in Newtown, Conneticut, it makes you wonder if it could be prevented. Lozano says yes.
“I see it as helping them before they strike out,” Lozano said.
Lozano points out the only way, if at all, is for friends and family to take notice early on, and speak up.
