Why are you interesting in mass killings?

For me it's the psychological aspect of it. I want to get inside these guy's heads and see what the hell was going on in there that drove them to do it. What was going through their heads as they were committing the act? Did they have any seconds thoughts or regrets? I'm a very non-violent, non-confrontational person, so the idea of going on a murderous rampage is alien to me. I've always had an interest in the morbid side of life, however. I was alive for Columbine but don't really remember it, my first big mass killings were the D.C. snipers and Virginia Tech massacre. My best friend at the time was Korean and quiet like Seung-hui Cho so it really stuck with me. As I got older I started researching it more and more.
