What makes people of any age turn into killers like Cho Seung Hui?

Because of recent events that happened in Virginia Technical College, people were in shock at the latest turn of events. A 23-yr old Cho Seung Hui shot and killed 22+ students at his college, then turned the gun on himself. This is almost similar to what happened at Columbine. But the main thing is, what makes people like Cho, Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold, and other school shooters kill other people and then themselves? What ignited the explosive spark that led to these mass murders at schools? Could it be bullying? The rich? Those with a superiority complex? One's upbringing? What could it be?

I honestly don’t know but somehow, something like this seems to always happen in the US. Serial killers, disturb kids, etc. I don’t know if it’s the culture or it may be related to a person’s upbringing. Then again, it may be the environment. Personally, I haven’t really been bullied in school so I don’t know what it feels like but I can only imagine. Bullying could take a toll on someone’s inferiority complex and this could trigger a person who’s very disturb.

It could be anything. Stress perhaps? Inferiority complex maybe? Depression possibly? Whichever the case, I think the more pressing issue now is to find ways to prevent such tragic incidents from happening again.
