In brief: Psychologists' views

I interviewed experts for this article on school violence in '01.
It was published on webmd and picked up widely (as on site below). Sadly it is still needed. If there are more current views, please add an answer or comments after reading this: http://www.Mombu.Com/politics/guns/t-opinion-blood-in-the-schoolyard-10495655.Html.

In brief: Increasing Anger

Violence among teenagers and youth seems to be on the rise.
Several factors may explain this rise, including poor problem solving, limited social skill, mood dysregulation (anger, irritability, sadness), substance use, and lack of empathy. An early history of physical aggression and delinquency are also known risk factors in the prediction of violence.
