I often think that if someone had reached out and befriended these people stuff like this would be much less common, most people have no idea how damaging being alone can be to your mental health.

As I've said before, I've been labeled as "Columbine" in my past. There have been plenty of murderers who had extroverted, charismatic personalities, Charles Manson being the best example. There has been a pattern of loners who became shooters, but that is not the cause, those people would follow the same route even if they were social people. It's every bit as bad as judging every muslim for what ISIS has been doing.

I saw this quote and thought it was so ****ing true:

"I wouldn't say a single word to them. I would listen to what they have to say, and that's what no one did." - Marilyn Manson (on what he would have said to the Columbine shooters)

Ted Bundy would be a great example.
Very well spoken guy, with great social skills (isn't that what people desire so much and deem those worthless who don't have those abilities? lol)
Too bad for his victims, he was a ****ed up killer...
Jeffrey Dahmer was similar as far as I know.

Simple, such people have never had to experience being severely depressed and being isolated. Why should they want to sympathize with or understand people who experience something that is totally opposite to them? People in general are just self absorbed and only care about their own healthy consciousness and well being, until they notice something that is not normal that has affected their normal atmosphere is when they want to place the blame on a group of people they have little to no knowledge about.

Unfortunately, it seems mass murderers usually are mentally damaged and anti social. So, well the stereotype isn't false.
I know the difference. That wasn't the point I was trying to make. My point was that people will often readily associate social awkwardness with violent tendencies, whether we're talking about serial killers, mass murderers, or whatever. It's like they're trying to stereotype awkward loners as dangerous, even though extroverted and charismatic people can be just as dangerous.

I agree though that there is a distinction. The profiles of serial killers and mass murders are usually quite different.
