http://www.headbutler.com/books/fiction/we-need-talk-about-kevin "I am not insane, I am angry. I killed because people like me are mistreated every day. I did this to show society, push us and we will push back. ... All throughout my life, I was ridiculed, always beaten, always hated. Can you, society, truly blame me for what I do? Yes, you will. ... It was not a cry for attention, it was not a cry for help. It was a scream in sheer agony saying that if you can't pry your eyes open, if I can't do it through pacifism, if I can't show you through the displaying of intelligence, then I will do it with a bullet." "I'll never forget the sound of her breaking under my might. I hit her so hard I knocked the fur off her neck ... it was true beauty," “Okay, it's like this. You wake up, you watch TV, and you get in the car and you listen to the radio. You go to your little job or your little school, but you're not going to hear about that on the 6:00 news, since guess what. Nothing is really happening. You read the paper, or if you're into that sort of thing you read a book, which is just the same as watching only even more boring. You watch TV all night, or maybe you go out so you can watch a movie, and maybe you'll get a phone call so you can tell your friends what you've been watching. And you know, it's got so bad that I've started to notice, the people on TV? Inside the TV? Half the time they're watching TV. Or if you've got some romance in a movie? What to they do but go to a movie? All those people, Marlin, what are they watching? People like me. " "1 in every 25 ordinary Americans secretly has no conscious and can do anything without feeling guilty. " "I had to be 100 percent... No one is perfect, though. Lots of times, life sucked. With my parents, if I didn't do the best, I was an embarrassment to my parents.'' "no other choice" "damn it...these voices inside my head" "I absolutely loved my parents and had no reason to kill them." "I had no reason to dislike, kill, or try to kill anyone at Thurston." "Psychopathy affects 3 to 6 percent of the population and is genetically based." In April of 1999, Kevin Khatchadourian, 15, murdered 7 students, a cafeteria worker and his English teacher at Gladstone High School.
