Common kids memes these days bring up school shootings a lot. There’s some sympathy for the shooter along with jokes of “who is the school shooter gonna be?” so taunting has more limits. [like they might JOKE about bringing a kid to the snapping point “for the meme” but unlike late era millennial older XBox culture, smart enough to know that school shootings are an actual possibility] GenZ irony can be advanced level.

Pumped up kicks is a popular kids song again. Understandable as kids today have to deal with school shootings as a real possibility so they’re forced to understand the thinking-of-a-shooter for their own safety… but in their own way.

Today’s shooter lives. We don’t know the reasons yet but being a weirdo gun nut who probably also got taunted could easily be the reason but that’s speculation.

So “most kill themselves” might not be as much as a truism as you claim.

“School shooters are weak people” is an old meme.

Multiple possibilities. Hollywood did it in that Michael Douglas movie. Columbine legend too.

But look at the cases and it’s not so cut and dry.

Old late millennial XBox lore, SWATting culture age people (mid 20s-mid 30s) believe it unironically. The old “drink bleach” stuff from way back, all ties into this theme.

But it’s internet mythology.

I think you’re caught up in the folklore. Boomer version says “mental illness” Millennial version is “was bullied”. But it’s folklore. Follow the actual stories and it gets complicated.
