    With all the psychobabble blaming young white males for shooting rampages, overlooked are these examples:

    Sylvia Seegrist: On October 30, 1985, she opened fire at a Springfield, Pennsylvania shopping mall, killing three people and wounding seven others before being disarmed by a shopper John Laufer (who mistakenly assumed Sylvia shooting to be a prank, as it was close to Halloween). The individuals killed included two men, Ernest Trout and Augustus Ferrara, and a two-year-old, Recife Cosmen. She was 25 years old and had been diagnosed as suffering from paranoid schizophrenia ten years earlier.

    Brenda Spencer: On January 29, 1979, Brenda, then 16, used a .22 rifle and fired at the staff and students of an elementary school across the street on which she lived, killing two and wounding nine. She is currently serving time in a San Diego prison and has been denied parole four times.? When asked why she did it, she simply said that she doesn't like Mondays and that killing "livens up the day".

    Amy Bishop: Shot six colleagues, three of which died, with a 9mm handgun February 13, 2010 shortly after learning that she had been denied tenure. She was arrested and indicted for the shooting and is currently in custody. The authorities also reopened the case of her fatally shooting her brother years earlier, an incident which previously was believed to have been an accident. In June 2010, she was charged with first-degree murder of her brother, nearly 24 years after the shooting occured. In 1993, Bishop and her husband were also suspects in a case in which a pair of pipe bombs were sent to a Harvard Medical School professor.

    Jennifer San Marco: Killed a neighbor, then went to a mail processing plant, where she killed an additional six before shooting herself in the head on January 30, 2006. She was apparently motivated by severe paranoia and bigotry (San Marco was a known racist, and with the exception of neighbor Beverly Graham, all her victims were minorities).

    You forgot Lori Dan, who shot up a McDonalds full of children when it turned out that she was one of the 10% that the drug "Prozac" helps to become a sociopath. Prozac stayed on the marked even though the drug a Psyh communities knew the danger.

    Before New Years Day, were it to be published, Black on Black crime related fatalities in Chi., NYC, Phil. will probably exceed 100 total. 100% of weapons will be un registered. Some of the deaths will be children. Male & female perp.s. It is only news when it happens en-masse. I remember the Texas tower shooting and how the media made a big deal out of this usually happening in 3's. As I recall there were 2 more similar shootings. You just can't cure crazy!
