Last week the New York Times ran a five-part series on so-called "rampage" killings — statistically rare but lethal outbursts that differ from the vast majority of homicides in the number of people killed, the higher likelihood of mental illness in the perpetrator, the killer’s lack of interest in getting away with the crime, and other characteristics.
