[...] Police say Allison Lamont Norman, 22, went on a shooting rampage Thursday, killing two people and wounding five. [...] No one knows what went on in Norman’s mind. But there are some things that psychologists who study “spree killers” can say, if only tentatively and with qualifications. “Spree killers are making a statement,” said Katherine Ramsland, an assistant professor of forensic psychology at DeSales University. “You’re hitting back at people whom you’ve perceived as hurting you. … Everyone’s a representative of a society that’s turned against them.” [..] In general, when people do irrational things, there is a “disconnect” between emotions and judgment, said Carroll Izard, distinguished professor of psychology at University of Delaware.
