Being deprived of affection and human contact in childhood has disastrous affects on the developing psyche. Dysfunctional families breed dysfunctional individuals. Maybe the school shootings could have been avoided if the families were closer and saw warning signs - who knows? There's no way a normal intellectual human being chooses to commit such heinous acts.
We all need to feel cared for and loved we're social creatures. We also need to care for other people we're social creatures. Without affection we'd be little more than rocks.
