    One obvious potential cause is repressed negative feelings regarding their own early school days.

    Or, maybe they're picking up violent aspects of Western culture as our media becomes more accessible to them?

    Soft targets, a child isnt going to fight back.

    Too bad that war is going to be USA vs. China.

    I say we make Japan send over all the Real Dolls they have.

    The West neither invented violence nor violence in media.

    Yeah a lot of Asian films are way more violent, they have good martial arts movies too.

    However, we did seem to invent school violence and the reporting of it.

    Maybe the reporting of it. The violence itself? Hard to prove.

    Hmm... lots of spoiled kids in China thanks to the government's enforcement of the one child rule, each the centre of their own little universes. These violent rampagers appear to be relatively young. I'm wondering if they belong to a generation that's grown up there thinking the world owed them, and have developed a grudge against it when they reach adulthood and finally realise they're no better than anyone else...?

    True. We don't know if it's just not being hidden as well as before.
