Those who murder all have one thing in common, says the producer of new movie on the death of the Beatles' John Lennon. 

Based on initial reports, a masked gunman murdered more than 26 people--including 20 children--at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. on Friday morning. Two guns were found near the shooter, who was discovered dead inside a classroom, according to law enforcement officials and media reports. Witnesses said the shooter was wearing a mask but his identity was still unknown.

Just two days before the Conn. shooting, a lone gunman had entered a crowded mall in Portland, Oregon, killing two people and wounding a 15-year-old girl, before taking his own life. In what appeared to be a random rampage, police noted that the killer, Jacob Tyler Roberts, 22, had no significant criminal history. His mother said that she had "no understanding or explanation" for what he did and that it was "so out of his character." According to a statement issued by the shooter's high school, "The motive for such a horrific act is likely to remain a mystery to us all." 

Ray Comfort, the producer of a new movie called "Genius," believes he knows why people are willing to take innocent life. Comfort said, ""Genius' points to what every murderer has in common, something the 'experts' either don't recognize or avoid talking about. But it's there."

In the movie, which is about John Lennon and why he was killed, 15 youths were asked if they would murder for money, and those who said yes all had one thing in common. "Something tragic is happening in our country," Comfort noted, "and most people don't know what it is. Those who want to understand why these tragedies are occurring--and are likely to continue to occur--should watch the free movie." 

Nearly 170,000 people have viewed the 34-minute movie since its release on YouTube a week ago. Watch the trailer to see those who would murder for money:www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZW2lhWfa28g
