No Facebook defining Social Isolation?

The other day I ran across the news about the psycho in Austin who decided to bring a gun to the UT Campus and start shooting people – only to miss and end up shooting himself in a library. Nice.

But what really bothered me when reading about this in this AP article, was the statement in the 5th paragraph:

The fact that Tooley apparently didn’t have a Facebook account “reflects a certain degree of isolation” that may be a clue to his behavior, he (James Fox, a professor of criminology at Northeastern University) said.

Whoa. Stop There.

I just can’t resist the temptation to use Non Sequitur, but … it’s just too easy! And admit, you fell for it, too.
