Fatherlessness and Mass Murders

Having a masters degree from UO and having lived within a 100 miles of Roseburg, Oregon for a decade, I have a particularly strong interest in the shootings at Umpqua CC last Thursday.
Unfortunately, the media has been particularly slow in bringing out the shooter’s background, perhaps because he’s of mixed race, which makes it harder to plug him into the usual PC pigeon holes. So, I’ve decided to link to an article that covers this week’s topic from the perspective of the previous mass murder, in South Carolina last summer:
