Kip Kinkle was a high school student at Thurston High. Kip was locked up for killing his parents, five students, and injuring over 20 kids at school. Kip had some psychological problems due to some of the disciplines; psychology, scientology, anthropology. Kip had social aspects in his life, maybe if he have been treated properly, he would not have to commit the crimes he did.
To start, Kip Kinkle was very isolated and had many life problems that may have started his problems at a young age. He had dyslexia, so he couldn’t read or write well. This caused Kip to feel very frustrated and to fall behind in class and have to be held back a year. Psychologist would say that e had this problem due to brain structure and chemicals which caused him to have learning problems. He felt extremely and about himself. Kip had a really bad social life at home and school. He got bullied in school because of how small he was, thi would lead him to have low self-esteem. Kip also had lack of friends due to where he lived and how he’d always have one. This would make Kip feel isolated and lonely.
