NEWTOWN, Conn. – The gunman who slaughtered 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school may have snapped because his mother was planning to commit him to a psychiatric facility,
So he "snapped" (it's somewhere in the DSM, I'm sure) as a result of anger alone, and changed from whatever he was (someone who wouldn't hurt a fly), into a raging psychopath? (After all, being capable of doing something so monstrous out of anger at one's mother presupposes a lack of conscience or human instinct.) Supposedly, once you snap, you don't unsnap, and you're can remain in a blind psychopathic rage even as you mow 20 children down with a rifle. It's almost as if he were possessed by rage.
