I've just finished this book. What bothered me was that the author is clearly very biased throughout. Each victim is a bible carrying angel on earth and each killer is Satan incarnate. He points out all too often that they did not attend church. He even goes so far as to say the availablity of guns are not to blame, the fault lies with Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Metalica, Stephen King, the movies Natural Born Killers, Terminator, backward masking, etc. He fails to point out that many of these killers were Christian and that the bible itself is full of very violent and sexually immoral stories. His bias is also evident in that he has clearly misstated the facts of at least some of these cases to fit the point he is trying to make - that we need prayer in school, we have to rid ourselves of violent TV, rock and rap music, etc. He takes several pages to make his point that gun control will not help.
I read a lot of true crime and I prefer that they report the facts, not the author's opinions and religious beliefs. This one borders on not even being true. I did a little investigation and found that I could easily debunk a lot of what is presented here as fact. Sure, maybe 2 or 3 of them listened to the same music but I'm sure 2 or three of them like pizza also. It doesn't mean anything.

I've just started reading this book and am finding factual errors as early as page 4. Mr Linedecker reports the popular, but untrue story of Cassie Bernall being shot after stating that she believes in god. (The real story has not been nearly so publicized - it was another girl who was asked and she was allowed to live). The bottom line is that I wonder if any of Mr. Linedecker's facts can be trusted, since only a few minutes of investigation are needed to dispell the aforementioned misstatement.

Full of errors. You wonder if the author did any basic reporting himself or just re-wrote random news stories. Plus, what's with all the cliches?
