Funny how city problems don't stay in the cities.
Are these kinds of school shootings a "city" problem.

The suburbs have plenty of mal-adjusted teens with easy access to guns

I think most shootings and most mass shootings are city phenomena, but the headline producing mass school shootings specifically seem to be primarily suburban.

Weekly weekday numbers.

4 killed, 7 wounded.

Already covered in this thread.


Rex, Georgia

4 killed, 3 wounded.

Domestic violence call. A black dude kills two women and shoots a 12-year-old boy in the face. While police are rendering aid to one of the women, the suspect opens fire on police, killing one and injuring a second.



2 mass shootings.

8 killed.

9 wounded.

These are not the DVEs the DOJ is looking for.

You can't see why spree shootings, especially schoolhouse massacres, capture a special attention in the media?

Why do people do this ******

I wrote something. Just read it. Don't add.


Is it true that shootings,including those that meet the definition of "mass shootings", happen more often in city settings than suburban settings?
Is it true that more mass school shootings, which tend to produce more headlines, happen in suburban \settings?


That's what I wrote. Don't add. If I am wrong about the frequency of the shootings, feel free to correct it, but don't add stuff in.

I dunno, is it true?

I have no reason to think a spree shooter in a public high school in a major city would get any less coverage. The type of shooting seems to make it more newsworthy. "Street crime", however vaguely that is defined, tends to be less newsworthy compared to spree-shooting type massacres.

I'm inclined to toss Baldwin in there as half a mass shooter as well. Does it count that he was shooting a Western?

They have identified the shooter in Denver (five people killed by shooter, shooter killed by police, two wounded including the cop that killed the shooter).

He seems to be a disgruntled tattoo artist who had his own shop, which went bankrupt. He targeted other tattoo shops. Also wrote some books that at least one reviewer compared to the Turner Dairies.

Police identify 47-year-old man who killed 5 people, injured 2 others in Lakewood, Denver shooting spree.

Yikes! No surprise that it turns out he was a big fan of the alt-right lunatic cult.

Yeah, the guy was a minor celebrity of the right wing "manosphere", with a bunch of bizarre books and postings celebrating the need for more masculine and violent men.

Some of them were singing his praises on social media. Others were furiously deleting their conversations. Also, I suppose people noticed Zuby for something other than being a crap rap artist and Covid minimizer.

Correction. The 14-year-old on the trigger is described by police as a "light-skinned Hispanic male." His dad drove him to the convenience store so he could shoot teenagers he had a beef with.

To those of us living in other western civilized countries it seems incredible that you can even produce lists like these to argue the relative "merits" of which group in society is killing other groups in society. In the UK we have some issues with knife crime and homicide. Our focus tends to be on trying to deal with the violence, not on assigning blame.

The novels that so many of these freaks were gushing over are little more than a self-insert fantasy of a mass shooter peppered with extreme misogyny and other toxic ideologies. Literally wrote about a protagonist with his name murdering characters of the same name and location of his eventual victims.

Quote:
The man who authorities believe killed five people in a shooting spree across the Denver metro Monday wrote about killing two of the victims in a series of novels he self-published in the four years leading up to the attacks.

In the second novel, McLeod describes an attack on a tattoo parlor in the 200 block of W. 6th Avenue. The character named “Lyndon MacLeod” bursts into the tattoo shop and kills several people, including the owner of the shop. In reality, police said, McLeod went to that block on Monday, fired shots and set a van on fire, but did not kill anyone.

...

McLeod named both Alicia Cardenas and Michael Swinyard as murder victims in his novels. Cardenas, 44, and Swinyard, 67, were both killed in Monday’s shooting spree.

What?!?! Seriously??

He named the people he killed in his novels as well? Holy crap!

I knew he named himself as a misogynistic murderer which surely even for Zuby should have been a red flag?

Let's wrap up 2021:

Gulfport, Mississippi

3 killed, 4 wounded.

Argument at a New Year's Eve party turned into a gunfight.

One last example of the"FTP/snitches get stitches" culture to close out the year.
Quote:
“There are those who know what happened and are not coming forward,” he said. “I encourage you, if you saw anything, take a stand and contact your police department so we can have justice for our victims,” he said. “My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.”

When police arrived, many witnesses were trying to flee to scene as quickly as possible.

“And I understand their mentality,” Ryle said. “They don’t want to be seen as snitches talking to the police in public. But we have a phone line they are more than welcome to call ... and give us that information."

  • 2014 – 272 mass shootings.
  • 2015 – 334 mass shootings.
  • 2016 – 382 mass shootings.
  • 2017 – 348 mass shootings.
  • 2018 – 336 mass shootings.
  • 2019 – 417 mass shootings.
  • 2020 – 611 mass shootings.
  • 2021 – 692 mass shootings.

Only one possible right-wing terrorism/MAGAr/Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremist- White Supremacist mass shooting that I'm aware of.


I don't expect the DOJ/FBI/DHS or any of the left-wing media to apologize for being so incredibly wrong and transparent in their attempts to keep the public fearful, angry and divided.

2022 is off to a good start with 6 reported mass shootings already.
