No, I don't really know what "sign" you can see in someone's eyes that shows they're crazy.

What looks evident to me is this young man's extreme narcissism. That isn't enough to make him a paranoid schizophrenic, but enough to consider he's "fucked up".

i would bet an over-authoritarian family was involved. i also suspect deep issues regarding relating to the opposite gender.

over-rightwing tendencies tend not to be seen as sexy by modern females, bless 'em. jilted revenge coupled with generalised resentment could be a powerful enough combo to motivate an act so demented.

i too was disgusted by the kneejerk, lockstep media reaction, with nary an apology after the truth finally was established, (that i saw anyway).
